Vandals damaged headstones at Orthodox cemetery in Kyrgyzstan

KABAR, August 10. An act of vandalism was committed at the Orthodox cemetery, the Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots told Interfax on Tuesday. Vandals destructed memorial headstones in several dozen graves at the cemetery not far from Bostery village, the Issyk-Kul Region (the country’s north).
The Council urges the Kyrgyz law enforcement agencies to find organizers and offenders and hopes that the crime will be properly evaluated and "public opinion will not leave it without notice and punishment."
"Such provocations aim at destabilizing situation in the republic, their goal is moral pressure on Russian-speaking part of our society," the Council officials stressed.
The Russian Embassy in Kyrgyzstan has already been informed about the situation.
"So far we cannot say who has done it and what their motives were," the Kyrgyz Interior Ministry told Interfax. An inquiry into the incident is already under way.
The instance of vandalism at the Orthodox cemetery will be raised at the next meeting of Russian expatriates in the Kyrgyz capital on August 11.
