Kyrgyzstan's President Almazbek Atambayev on Saturday returned to his Central Asian homeland after being discharged from a Moscow hospital where he was treated for heart problems, officials said.
A statement from the Kyrgyz presidency said Atambayev flew into the capital Bishkek after "undergoing treatment" at the Russian government facility.
No details were given on his health but a photograph was released showing him smiling as he descended plane steps next to his wife.
Atambayev, 60, was transferred to Russia just over a week ago after being hospitalized with chest pains in Turkey during a stop-off on the way to the United Nations General Assembly.
In an earlier statement on Tuesday the Kyrgyz authorities said doctors had noted a "significant improvement in the condition" of Atambayev and problems connected to heart arrhythmia had been "fully resolved".
His illness followed a public row with several former political allies who oppose his constitutional reform plan.
The ruling coalition led by Atambayev's Social Democratic party has nevertheless pressed ahead with the plan and this week passed the first reading of a bill calling a referendum on the reforms on Dec.4.
The changes would strengthen the powers of the prime minister, a role which Atambayev could in theory take on after stepping down as president, although he said in August he had no such plan.
Kyrgyzstan, an impoverished, mostly Muslim former Soviet republic of 6 million, has been politically volatile for more than a decade, where violent protests in 2005 and 2010 toppled two successive presidents. However, the country is also viewed as the most democratic country in ex-Soviet Central Asia.
Atambayev -- viewed as a close ally of Russia -- was elected to power for a single six-year term in 2011 and is due to leave office next year.
