BISHKEK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 28th November, 2021) There could be serious masterminds behind those who had intended to organize a coup in Kyrgyzstan following the parliamentary elections, Secretary of the Security Council of Kyrgyzstan Marat Imankulov told Sputnik.
A group of people, led by parliament members and former officials, had planned to organize mass protests in Bishkek after the elections, with the goal of facilitating a violent seizure of power. The group allegedly included three candidates from the Green Party of Kyrgyzstan.
“I know some of those detained. I had advised them not to become tools in other people’s hands. I am sorry that they turned out this way… There are likely serious masterminds behind them,” Imankulov told Sputnik commenting on the situation.
