Moscow counts on the earliest possible stabilization of the situation in Kyrgyzstan and will provide the necessary assistance to this. This was announced on Thursday at a briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“We count on the earliest possible stabilization of the situation in the republic. Russia, as a strategic partner and ally of Kyrgyzstan, has provided and will provide all the necessary assistance for this, ”Zakharova said.

According to her, Russia also hopes that “this process will take place within the framework of the constitution and national legislation.”

Earlier on the same day, President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov resigned. He also asked Prime Minister Sadyr Japarov and other politicians to “withdraw their supporters” from Bishkek and return a peaceful life to residents.

On October 14, the Kyrgyz parliament approved Japarov as the country’s prime minister.

In Kyrgyzstan, mass protests, coupled with riots, began after the parliamentary elections on October 4. The electoral barrier was overcome only by four out of 16 parties participating in the elections. Supporters of the losing factions took to the streets of the republic’s capital. They seized the buildings of the city hall, public television and radio company, parliament, government and the country’s Interior Ministry, and also released a number of politicians from prison.

Then the current president of the republic Sooronbai Jeenbekov called what happened in the state an attempt to seize power, but agreed with the need to hold new elections. The republic’s Central Election Commission canceled the results of the vote, and the leaders of the opposition parties created the first and second coordination councils.

Against the background of what is happening in the republic, Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov and Speaker of Parliament Dastanbek Dzhumabekov resigned.

It is expected that new presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan will take place not earlier than in three months.
