Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko has sent congratulations to Kyrgyzstan on the first anniversary of the uprising that ousted former President Askar Akaev, RFE/RL reported.

In a message to President Kurmanbek Bakiev posted on the Kyrgyz president's website, Yushchenko says the ideals that inspired the Kyrgyz revolution are the same as those that spurred Ukraine's Orange Revolution.

Yushchenko says that both countries seek to build democratic societies.

The anniversary of the Kyrgyz revolt, also known as the "Tulip Revolution," will be officially marked on March 24.
