Starting from the evening of 20 July the social media, followed by major Internetbased news outlets has been publishing the reports on the death of President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov.
According to correspondents of Chronicles of Turkmenistan, for the time everything is quiet in Ashgabat and there is no panic. No cultural events have been cancelled and no additional police squads are patrolling the city.
Disrupted access to the website of Chronicles of Turkmenistan is caused by the influx of visitors to the website rather than attacks.
We have previously reported that Berdymukhammedov's mother, who has been transported to Germany, is in critical condition.
