Hundreds of people living in Kyrgyzstan do not have the country's identity documents. This makes these people ‘invisible’ to the authorities, as Diana Rahmanova writes [ru]:

In essence, you can say, “Here I am. I exist. I live. Here. Here is my body, my face. Look at me. I am not lying!”.

But these statements are of little help when you encounter any state institution, such as a hospital, police, or school…

As they say, without papers you are nobody. You are “invisible”, you do not exist!

The blogger also posts presentations and videos (in Russian) from a recent event focusing on the problems of people without identity documents in the country.
