Security forces on Thursday arrested former Kyrgyzstan President Almazbek Atambayev, accusing him of corruption which he denies.

The internal stability of Kyrgyzstan is in the interests of the people of the republic as well as in the country's friends' interests," Maria Zakharova said at a news conference in Moscow.

Russia expects the crisis to be settled in a peaceful manner, she added.

Speaking about the opposition-led demonstrations in Moscow, she said the Foreign Ministry is in contact with Western media which, she claimed, campaigned for the protests.
