TURKMENISTAN. "Local Russians Pack Their Bags As Dual Citizenship Nears
End." Thousands of Russian-speakers in Turkmenistan are leaving the
country as a result of a Turkmen presidential decree abolishing dual
citizenship with Russia. Russian-speakers say the decree - issued only
last week - does not leave them enough time to properly dispose of
their property. Human rights activists condemn the action, saying it is
another step by the country toward complete isolation.
