Besides that, he accused Atambaev of shooting of fighters of the Special Forces to kill.

Head of Kirghizia’s State Committee of Homeland Orozbek Opumbaev has accused the Republic’s ex-President of preparation of revolution, reports RIA Novosti.

“Atambaev needed blood, and I openly declare it! He needed blood to carry out a take-over,” he stated during the press conference.

He says that the State’s former head was preparing for collisions in the residence. He had armoury in his house, including sniper rifles, guns, shoulder arms. His house’s third floor was fixed as a military bunker with earth-and-timber emplacement and battle points for defence.

Besides that, he accused Atambaev of shooting of fighters of the Special Forces to kill.

“It was cynical. It was just murder! I’m sure the investigation will figure it out,” the head of Kirghizia’s State Committee of Homeland concluded.

Earlier, Atambaev confessed that he had used weapon when law enforcers wanted to detain him, but he “tried not to strike the guys.” After the first attempts of the storm, he turned to law enforcers with a request not to shoot their people. The ex-President also expressed regret that many innocent people had suffered.

On July 27, this year, Kirghizia’s parliament voted for deprivation of Atambaev of his status of the ex-President and untouchability due to the fact that he had been involved in a few violations of law. He was involved in Batukaev’s case. The special operation into detention of Atambaev was launched in the evening, on August 7. Hundreds of his supporters gathered at his house. The Special Forces used special non-lethals: stun grenades and rubber bullets. Fire was also opened as a response. One of the fighters died. 136 persons got injuries.

Atambaev turned himself in the following evening after the lengthy negotiations. He was taken to Bishkek escorted by counsellors Farid Niyazov and Kunduz Zholdubaev.

The ex-President was placed in a remand prison till August 26.
