Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Zheenbekov has officially resigned. This was reported by the president’s press service.

He noted that his resignation was connected with the tense situation in the country.

"Yesterday the Jogorku Kenesh approved the composition of the government, I signed the decrees of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic on the relevant appointments. However, it did not break the tensions. Unfortunately, the aggression does not subside, the demand for my immediate resignation is still out there. The current situation is close to a bilateral conflict,” Zheenbekov stated.

It was also noted that he did not hold on to power and did not want to shed the blood of his own citizens.
