30 Oct., 2012, press release
Early November 2012  to post treatment of Kyrgyzstan come a 2 new stamps "Written Heritage of the ancient  Kyrgyzstan".
The first reference to the Kyrgyz language is recorded in an eighth century AD Turkic Orkhon inscription. During the eighth / nineth centuries the ancestral Kyrgyz were living in the Upper Yenisey region in far northern central Mongolia. The many Turkic inscriptions in that area, which date from the fifth to seventh centuries, are attributed to them.
The ascendance of the Mongol Empire in the thirteenth century caused the Kyrgyz people to migrate south toward the Tien Shan range, in the area of ​​present day Kyrgyzstan. Their territory was subjected to successive waves of Turkic and Mongol invasions, causing some Kyrgyz speakers to migrate to Turkestan. By the mid-eighteenth century, Kyrgyzia was nominally under Chinese control, although in reality it was largely independent. After a brief period of Turkic vassalage, Kyrgyzia was incorporated into the Russian Empire, causing some Kyrgyz speakers to migrate to Afghanistan and the Pamirs. The transition to Soviet rule was marked by violence and fighting, leading to a major migration of Kyrgyz speakers to China. In 1919, Kyrgyzia was incorporated into the Turkman Soviet Socialist Republic, and in 1936 it became a full fledged republic in the USSR. Kyrgyzstan became an independent republic in 1990 after the break up of the USSR.
