MOSCOW, March 25 (RIA Novosti) - Askar Akayev has described the latest developments in Kyrgyzstan as an anti-constitutional coup.
"Rumors about my resignation from the presidential post are false and malicious," reads Akayev's statement forwarded to the state Kyrgyz news agency, Kabar.
"My current stay outside the country is temporary," the statement reads.
"The attempt to deprive me of presidential authority by unconstitutional methods is a state crime," the document reads.
"As the legitimate head of state, I will remain an indispensable and leading participant in the state political events in the republic," stated Akayev.
