BISHKEK, May 26. /TASS/. The parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan scheduled for October may be accompanied by riots provoked by all sorts of radical groups, well-known Kyrgyz political scientist Igor Shestakov told TASS on Tuesday.
"The opposition in the country today is divided and has no single political center," he said. "However, recently various radical youth movements began to emerge within its ranks, which may become a catalyst for mass protests."
According to Shestakov’s estimates, over the past six months numerous such organizations had emerged in the country, including nationalist ones, and this fact "is a cause for alarm."
Shestakov added that the deterioration of the social and political situation during the elections could be triggered by "outside forces", including at the expense of "financing the negative scenarios in Kyrgyzstan." "Today the West is interested in destabilizing the situation in the country," the expert said. "And the elections will be a good pretext for destabilizing the situation if not in the whole of the republic, then in one of its regions."
The turn for the worse, up to the "political provocations", is highly likely after the results of the elections are summed up, Shestakov said.
