The seizure of power by opposition in Kyrgyzstan is not a Russian-sponsored coup aimed against the United States, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

Kyrgyzstan’s opposition said it had seized power in the strategically important Central Asian state after an uprising forced President Kurmanbek Bakiyev to flee the capital.

Michael McFaul, a senior White House adviser on Russia, said it was not clear who was in charge in Kyrgyzstan, but the people who were “allegedly” running the country were not anti-American.


“The people that are allegedly running Kyrgyzstan and I emphasize that word because it’s not clear who is in charge right now — these are all people that we’ve had contact with for many years,” told reporters.

“This is not some anti-American coup. That we know for sure and this not a sponsored by the Russians coup,” he added.
