The Kazakh leader stated that foreign parties were directly involved in the protests, but it is not yet clear which forces were responsible
Western media are controlled and serve as the propaganda ministry for the government and interest groups that control the government like in the USSR. Social media, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter systematically deny their platforms to those who express views unfavourable to the government order and its programmes.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that the West imposes censorship through its state institutions and private social media companies (such as Facebook and Twitter).
These claims seeks to discredit Western mainstream media and Western liberal democracies.
This claim does not reflect the reality of Western media, where a wide range of political opinions is represented. Media in pluralist democracies are not controlled and censored by the state, as happens in authoritarian regimes and happened in the Soviet Union.
According to Reporters Without Borders, the nations with the most press freedom and freedom of speech are Western countries, with European nations predominating, as well as Canada and the United States.
Also it is not true that social media, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter systematically deny their platforms to those who express views unfavourable to the government order and its programmes.
On the 4th of June 2020, Facebook announced that it would label media outlets that are wholly or partially under the editorial control of their government. The labels are not censoring in any way but merely inform users about the publishers' origins to help them understand the source of the information they are consuming. This is designed to bring greater transparency about these publishers since they combine the influence of a media organisation with the strategic backing of a foreign state.
