Deputies of the Parliament are going to find out what foreign states fund the mass media in Kyrgyzstan, Kozhobek Ryspaev (SDPK) said today at a meeting of Parliament.
He appealed to the Speaker of the Parliament Asylbek Zheenbekov with a request to instruct the profile committee of Parliament to examine the question of who is behind this or that media in Kyrgyzstan. "They could have the logo of Kyrgyz TV, but if you dig deeper, it turns out that the masters are citizens of other countries," Kozhobek Ryspaev said.
The deputy stressed that this it is not infringement of freedom of speech, or hindrance to the work of journalists. "The public needs to know what kind of state sponsors those who provide them with information," the deputy concluded.
