A citizen of Kyrgyzstan, who is working as a taxi driver in Moscow, was detained by the police for refusal to carry a drunk passenger. A lawyer, head of «Utro Mira» human rights organization Valentina Chupik told.

According to her, Aizat Isakov, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, a taxi driver, was attacked by a drunk passenger, who insulted him on a national basis and tried to fight. «After that the drunk passenger called the police and wrote a statement against the Kyrgyz, whom he himself attacked!

And it’s impossible to get through to the Central Internal Affairs Department,» said Valentina Chupik.
