The president’s press service reported that swift orders have been issued to ensure the rapid restoration of operations at the thermal power station. All relevant services are working tirelessly in an enhanced mode to address the situation.
The accident, which took place on January 2 at 3 a.m., resulted in equipment malfunctions at the Bishkek thermal power plant.

He is currently leading a meeting of the operational headquarters to coordinate response efforts.
The Ministry of Emergency Situations in Kyrgyz Republic is considering two possible causes for the accident: one involving potential sabotage and the other of a man-made nature. Investigations are underway to determine the exact cause of the incident.
