Kyrgyzstan “lost” the president – neither the Security Council nor the Ministry of Internal Affairs can find Sooronbay Jeenbekov. Border guards were ordered not to let the president out of the country just in case, RBC reports.
«The whereabouts of Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Jeenbekov and Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov (resigned on 6 October) are unknown. For security reasons, it was decided to close the border», – said the Deputy Head of the country’s Security Council Omurbek Suvanaliev.
Acting head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Kyrgyzstan and commandant of Bishkek, Kursan Asanov, appointed to this post on October 6, also said that he did not know where the president was.
«I am now busy with other problems – putting things in order in Bishkek. As you can see, since yesterday, together with voluntary people’s squads, we managed to take the situation in the city under control, prevent looting. And we keep working on it. I believe that other structures are looking for Jeenbekov and others.», – quotes his words portal 24.kg.
Meanwhile, RIA Novosti reports that the press service of the President of Kyrgyzstan stated that Jeenbekov is in Bishkek and “is negotiating with all political forces in order to return the situation to a legal channel”.
