BISHKEK. Jan 25 (Interfax) - The capital Bishkek and several regions of Kyrgyzstan have been left without electricity due to a systemic disruption in the Central Asian power grid, a spokesperson for JSC National Power Grid of Kyrgyzstan told Interfax on Tuesday.
"A shutdown occurred throughout the power grid of Central Asia after automatic systems were activated, thus leading to power outages across Kyrgyzstan," the spokesperson said.
Efforts are ongoing to restore the normal functioning of the power grid and the reasons behind the accident are being established, the spokesperson said. Electricity supply will be resumed as soon as it becomes possible.
"Kyrgyzstan's regions facing power outages are mainly Bishkek and the Chuy region. Electricity supply is unstable in all other regions," the spokesperson said.
