Having left a pre-trial detention center, Tsukanov assured journalists that rumors spread in mass media about the fact that he was registered in mental institution in Karaganda was false.

“By this act I wanted the Minister “to fall on his face”. I am against any anti-national reforms, such as increase of retirement age for women”, - said Tsukanov. He said that he expected a possible detention and, for this purpose, he took days-off from work.
