Kyrgyzstanis sold fake airline tickets to their compatriots in Moscow. Press service of the Embassy of the Kyrgyz Republic in Russia reported.
On December 30, several Kyrgyz citizens complained to the diplomatic mission about their removal from flights departing from Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo airports to Bishkek on New Year’s Eve.
It turned out that they bought air tickets for 18,000-19,000 rubles in a non-existent ticket office from citizens of Kyrgyzstan.
«At least 10 citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic have filed statements on the fact of fraud with the assistance of the embassy’s staff,» the embassy said.
According to the diplomatic mission, similar situations occur regularly on the eve of mass departures of citizens, in this case before the New Year holidays. There may be even more victims.
