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.
He added that the situation in the country could lead to bloodshed, so he called on law enforcement officers and protesters not to succumb to provocations.
It was also noted that he did not hold on to power and did not want to shed the blood of his own citizens.
As we reported earlier, on October 5, several thousand protesters gathered at Ala-Too square in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. They detested the results of the parliamentary elections in this country.
The protesters broke through the gates of the White House, the administrative building, where President and the Parliament work.
