Sites Blocked in Tajikistan

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan — Internet providers in Tajikistan barred access Monday to web sites known for carrying criticism of the local government, acting on orders from authorities, providers and sites said.

The move came amid a military campaign against suspected Islamist militants whom the government has blamed for recent attacks in the republic.

Internet users were unable to open several news sites, including Ferghana.ru and Avesta.tj.

Tajik officials declined to comment on who had closed access to the sites and why. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
