Advisor to the U.S. Ambassador in Kyrgyzstan Kristine Marsh clarified the human rights report of the U.S. Department of State.

And the former prime ministers charged with corruption, Sapar Isakov and Jantoro Satybaldiev, are political detainees.

«The human rights report is a balanced report on the human rights situation in different countries of the world. This year’s report on the Kyrgyz Republic, as in previous years, is a collection of credible statements and analysis of the government of the republic, civil society, experts and other relevant bodies,» she said.
