So yesterday, Freedom House released "Freedom in the World 2010," annual survey of global political rights and civil liberties. You know where this is going...
Kazakhstan and Failed-tulip-revolution-stan (Kyrgyzstan) entered the not free category this year, joining the ranks of Azerbaijan, Belarus, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. So what I'm saying is: Central Asia is not free.
Also, good news, we've been reporting a lot of shady news about Ukraine in the last year, but apparently Ukraine is considered free...free to sell its votes.
