They took control of government buildings in the capital

Opposition groups in Kyrgyzstan announced the seizure of power today (Tuesday), after taking control of government buildings in the capital during protests against the results of parliamentary elections in the strategically important country in Central Asia.

The opposition indicated that it had released former President Almaz Bey Atambayev, who was imprisoned on charges of corruption, and that it was already discussing the formation of an interim government.

For his part, President Surunbay Genbekov said that there is an attempted coup in Kyrgyzstan, which hosts a Russian air base and has a large gold mine run by Canada, according to “Reuters”.

Genbekov added that he had ordered the security forces not to open fire in the face of the protesters under any circumstances.

For its part, the government indicated that one dead and 590 wounded were killed in the unrest during the night.

It was not clear if “Atambayev” would play any role, and “Genbekov” did not show any sign of leaving power.

Kyrgyzstan is located on the border with China and is a close ally of Russia, and has long been an arena for geopolitical competition between Moscow, Washington and Beijing. It has a history of political unrest and the insurgency has ousted two of its presidents over the last 15 years.
