Russia says won't send troops to Kyrgyzstan

Russia sees no conditions for sending troops into violence-hit Kyrgyzstan for now, as the conflict there is an internal one, but will offer humanitarian aid, a Kremlin spokeswoman was quoted as saying on Saturday.

"It is an internal conflict and for now Russia does not see the conditions for taking part in its resolution," Natalya Timakova, spokeswoman for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, was quoted as saying by Interfax news agency.

She added that Medvedev had ordered for the issue to be discussed by the security bloc of former Soviet republics known as the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) in order to decide on common measures for reaction.

Any possible decision on sending in the peacekeeping troops of the CSTO would be taken only in line with U.N. regulations, she added.
