In its relations with Kyrgyzstan, Moscow acts on the assumption that deposed President Kurbanbek Bakiyev has formally resigned, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.

"I know - and this was officially announced - that Kurmanbek Bakiyev faxed a letter of resignation to Bishkek.  His verbal statements can hardly overrule this document," Lavrov said.

On Wednesday Bakiyev, who had fled Kyrgyzstan following the April 6-8 riots, said he had not in fact resigned and urged world leaders not to recognize the republic's interim government.
