“This conflict does not involve politics anymore. The new leader does not offer any innovations or changes, and the old leader does the same,” expert in conflicts Tatiana Vygovskaya-Kamenko commented on the attempted detention of the ex-president of Kyrgyzstan, Almazbek Atambaev, in his house in the village of Koi-Tash and the clashes that followed.
«The fact that Almazbek Atambayev flew to Moscow through the Russian airbase in Kant, where a private plane sent by the Russian side was waiting for him, was perceived as direct interference in the internal affairs of the country. It turns out that there is an uncontrollable zone in Kyrgyzstan, from where in case of litigation, one can fly out without an obstacle from the Kyrgyz authorities,» analyst Nursultan Akylbek notes.
The conflicts on this part of the Kyrgyz-Tajik border have become chronic, but there is no progress in resolving this issue yet.
