Osh city administration ordered insulting anti-Uzbek graffiti (at the intersection of Alisher Navoi Street and Aitiyev Street) painted over. City fathers believe that the perpetrators must have aimed at staging a provocation.

Law enforcement agencies and local authorities paid no attention to the graffiti ("Sarts, Get Out!") for days on end. It took a publication by Ferghana.Ru to get the authorities moving.
