Authorities have accused the son of Kyrgyzstan’s ousted president, nicknamed “the Prince” and known for his playboy lifestyle, of being a prime instigator of ethnic violence gripping the country. Maxim, 32, is the son of the country’s former president Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

“The ‘wallet’ of these riots is Maxim Bakiyev, who started financing the riots back in April,” first deputy president Almazbek Atambayev said.
