Ex-president of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev was not awarded Ak-Shumkar distinction. The deputy Irina Karamushkina stated at a session of the Parliament today.
According to her, the president’s decree on conferring the title of Hero of the Kyrgyz Republic on Almazbek Atambayev was issued almost a year ago, but it has not been executed yet. «He did not receive the award. Who should do this? The decree was signed, it is necessary to fulfill it. Or is it personal dislike?» Irina Karamushkina asked.
The Executive Secretary of the Commission for State Awards Zhyldyz Smanbayeva replied that the execution of the decree was not in their competence.
Recall, during the inauguration ceremony, Sooronbai Jeenbekov promised that his first decree as the head of Kyrgyzstan would be a decree conferring the title of Hero of the Kyrgyz Republic on Almazbek Atambayev and awarding him Ak-Shumkar mark of distinction.
Three days later, Almazbek Atambayev received the highest state award «for an outstanding service to the people, an outstanding contribution to strengthening the state independence of Kyrgyzstan, the unity of the people, peace and harmony in the country, creation of a solid foundation for sustainable development of the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as demonstrated political will and courage.»
