Access to 64 websites, 233 accounts and video channels of Internet users is prohibited and limited in the Republic. This was reported by the General Prosecutor of Kyrgyzstan.
The reason for taking such measures was the content of these websites. They circulated informational materials promoting the terrorist and extremist activities of individual organizations.
The supervisor emphasized that separatism, the division of society on the basis of religion, ethnicity, race, gender, as well as the recruitment of mercenaries, including involving minors in illegal activities, are growing on the Internet.
