MEDIA FREEDOM UNDER PRESSURE IN CENTRAL ASIA

 1-09-2023, 15:56    Category: English » Reports & Researches


MEDIA FREEDOM UNDER PRESSURE IN CENTRAL ASIAPressure on media freedom in Central Asia will continue, says Inga Sikorskaya, founder of the School of Peacemaking and Media Technology in Central Asia.

"The rejection of criticism by the authorities creates narratives hostile to the media and fuels negativity society's attitude towards the media, she emphasized at the international conference "Turning Points in Eurasia: Geopolitics, Economics and Civil Society in Central Asia - Current Situation and Future Prospects,” held in Almaty, Kazahstan.

The authorities of Central Asian countries are passing repressive laws against the media. There has been an increase in attacks and threats against media workers. Moreover, attacks using legal mechanisms predominate.

Another example of the suppression of media freedom is organized actions involving unknown groups of people. For example, in Kyrgyzstan, groups of aggressive people came to the local editorial office of Radio Liberty (Azattyk), online media Kloop and Kaktus. The crowd demanded that these media be immediately closed and declared foreign agents (like to the repressive law of Russia). Otherwise, these "activists” threatened that they would burn down the editorial offices.
