The minister recalled that on July 21, in Shornak village, Turkestan region, there was a domestic conflict between two young residents of the village, in which other people were involved from both sides. Through the efforts of the precinct policeman the incident was localized, the initiators and participants in the fight were detained, and a pre-trial investigation was initiated.
As part of the planned work on monitoring the interethnic situation in the region, there was a group of specialists in the region from the recently created Institute of Applied Interethnic Relations under the Ministry of Information and Social Development, headed by the director, who had the opportunity to assess the situation and reconstruct the events in minute detail. Yesterday's mailings and episodic publications in social media were not made by the village residents. To misinform the audience, an old video was posted that had nothing to do with the incident in the village of Shornak. In this provocation, attempts were clearly traced to scale the conflict.
