Omurbek Babanov decides not to return to Kyrgyzstan

Leader of Respublika political party Omurbek Babanov decided not to arrive in Bishkek today.

He posted an appeal to compatriots on Facebook, where he tells about upcoming provocations. In this regard, in order not to let down his supporters and avoid human sacrifices, he will refrain from traveling to Bishkek for the time being.

Supporters were preparing to meet Omurbek Babanov. Rallies in his support were to be held in Bishkek, Karakol, Naryn and Talas cities.

Recall, the Prosecutor General’s Office opened two criminal cases against Omurbek Babnov. He is accused of public calls for violent change of the constitutional order and incitement of national, racial or religious hatred. He is also accused of attempt to forcibly seize power.

After the presidential election in 2017, he left Kyrgyzstan. He is in Moscow now. In 2018, Omurbek Babanov said that he left big politics and would devote himself to business. He recently said that he planned to return home and actively participate in the political life of the country.
