COALITION FOR EQUALITY OPPOSES RUSSIA PROPAGANDA IN KYRGYZSTANМар 01.2022
The Coalition for Equality, which brings together 36 civil society organizations and activists in Kyrgyzstan, has addressed the president of Kyrgyzstan and the government with an appeal to provide information about the difficult international situation. "Our residents, who are under Russian informational pressure, receive one-sided information, and local media do not have the opportunity to report due to the lack of their own correspondents [in the conflict zones]," the statement says. The information war, a lot of fakes in the media, and on the Internet provoke our society to divide that can lead to negative consequences. Members of the Coalition called on the president and government of Kyrgyzstan to ban Russian state news TV channels in the Kyrgyzstan’s digital packages and replace them with local ones in order to give balanced news. The Coalition for Equality is also addressing journalists to create more truthful reporting in local languages.
We also call on journalists of the first public broadcaster (OTRK) to provide more information on the current international situation.
