The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
