Tajikistan Blocks 130 Websites

After cutting local access to Facebook in November, the authorities in Tajikistan have ordered to block over 130 websites, including popular Russian-language networking platforms. Blogger Tomiris writes [ru]:

Hurray! [Tajikistan is] ahead of the rest of the world again! Where else do they block more than 130 websites at once?

  • This is a very shameful way of being “ahead” of everyone else. OK, they can block the websites if they wish – it is within their legal mandate to do so. But why don’t they tell the real reason for these blocks?
