Russia rejects involvement with unrest in Kyrgyzstan in strongest terms

Russian authorities say any suggestions that Moscow could be involved in the disturbances in Kyrgyzstan are false.

“We would like to express our complete perplexity in connection with the falsified news that is filling the media now. They are unprincipled, groundless falsehood,” announced Russian First Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin.

Russia has called on both the Kyrgyz authorities and opposition to come to terms lawfully without violence and bloodshed.

“We’re watching intently the current complicated situation in Kyrgyzstan,” the diplomat said, adding that the most important thing now is not to let events follow a dramatic scenario and escalate the violence.
