Moscow worried by political unrest in Kyrgyzstan, Putin says

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday Moscow was concerned by political unrest in Kyrgyzstan and hoped for a swift return to stability.

Kyrgyzstan, a Central Asian nation home to a Russian military airbase, has been rocked by political unrest since the opposition stormed government buildings early on Tuesday, forcing the prime minister to quit and a parliamentary election to be annulled.
