Why is "Market Leader" Banned by Uzbekistan Government?


 

Uzbekistannews. For decades much was banned in the USSR, from the books of Solzhenitsyn to "Voice of America" and "Radio Liberty", and the stronger were the appeals of communist ideologists to the party consciousness of Soviet people, the more attentively sensible people were listening to and reading what was banned. No fruit is so highly desired and sweet as the one that is banned.
 
The government of Muslim Uzbekistan does not seem to understand this biblical truth, having recently followed "the best traditions of former USSR" and banned initially "Radio Liberty", then Wikipedia (in Uzbek), and now the leading CIS portal for traders and investors "Market Leader" after its publication, jointly with "Ozodlik Radiosi" (Radio Liberty in Uzbekistan), of analytical article "For Investors: Who is Dearer to Russia Around CIS? What are the secrets of Russian and Uzbek relationships?" What frightened President Karimov?
 
What happened to

"Market Leader" portal in Uzbekistan?

From February 22, 2012 and up to the present day we keep receiving letters from various parts of Uzbekistan asking "Why isn’t it possible to study your web-site anymore?" This is how the web-portal www.profi-forex.org, which works around the clock, looks for Uzbekistan citizens. The site has simply become unavailable:
 
 
 

Who is banned for Uzbekistan citizens and why?

 
According to international organizations, Uzbekistan is at the end of the rating for the freedom of speech and democracy. Thus:
 ■ "Reporters Without Borders" has assigned 163rd position to Uzbekistan out of the total of 178 countries considered in the rating for the freedom of speech in 2010 (more details in the article "Uzbekistan: Will Investors Have "Silk Road" in the Country?") and  157th position in 2011;
 ■ The Daily Beast publishing house has called Uzbekistan the most corrupted country of the planet as of 2012. (by the way, Masterforex-V analysts and "Market Leader" do not fully support this, as shown in the article "For Investors: How Objective is The Daily Beast Rating of Most Corrupted Countries?")
 
What is banned in Uzbekistan? The list of bans for watching, reading, listening, doing, and even wearing for the citizens of this Middle East country is rather big. Banned in Uzbekistan are:
 - internet portals "Ozodlik Radiosi" (Radio Liberty in Uzbekistan), hosting blog "Live Journal", Wikipedia (in Uzbek), “BBC” (by Russian and regional government), "Lenta.ru", "Gazeta.ru", "Ferghana.ru". This list of "dangerous for Uzbekistan" media is now added by "Market Leader"
 - web-sites and press bearing religious (Islamic) or erotic character;
 - foreign news channels and broadcasting stations, for example, "Voice of America", BBC, and CNN;
 - Russian channels TNT and DTV;
 - over 700 local or foreign films (mostly horror films or actions, some parts of Russian series "Menty (Cops)", and cartoon "Shrek" translated by Goblin);
 - celebrations of Halloween and Valentine’s Day;
 - stores with women’s underwear;
 - selling white skullcaps, which symbolize faithful Muslims.
 
Freedom of speech in Uzbekistan is even worse than international ratings show, as explained in his interview to "Market Leader" by the expert of Masterforex-V Academy in Uzbekistan Ravshan S., Russian citizen that lives in Moscow, but regularly visits his historic motherland Uzbekistan. Ravshan explained that these ratings bear political character; in this reference, Uzbekistan (the country, with which the USA, Russia, Turkey, and China are trying to be on friendly terms) always receives higher position in the rating... than its real one. For example, according to the recent research of "Reporters Without Borders" on the freedom of press, Ukraine occupies 116th position, RF – 142nd position, Uzbekistan – 157th, Belarus – 168th.
 
In fact, freedom of speech in Belarus and Russia is by tens, if not by hundreds, higher than in Uzbekistan. See for yourselves, Ravshan explained his thesis:
 ■ how many opposition sites are there that criticize Lukashenko’s policy? InRFthereareevenmore. There is nothing similar in Uzbekistan (all opposition sites and their journalists work outside the country);
 ■ how many opposition protests have been there in Minsk or Moscow? CanyouimaginesomethinglikethisinTashkent? It a protest happens in Uzbekistan, all its participants, with no exception, their families and closest relatives will not only lose their jobs at once, but will also be imprisoned, or maybe even shot (as it happened in Andijan in 2005);
 ■ Belarus and Russian citizens can freely discuss political and economic news with their friends, but in Uzbekistan one will never dare to discuss the drawbacks not even of President Karimov’s policy (this is sacrilege in Uzbekistan), but everyday problems, for example (like mass gas shutdowns, rising prices for public utilities, etc.). My relatives clearly explained that I was not in Moscow, and that it was unaccepted to speak negatively about their country, and, what is more, about political power; otherwise... I may never return to Moscow again.
What country has poorer democracy and freedom of speech than Uzbekistan?
 
 

Ban on "Market Leader" magazine: what frightened official Tashkent?

 
Ban on "Market Leader" signals about a new trend of Uzbekistan policy – total ban even on those who have never criticized Uzbekistan, but whose independent analytics for investors is different from officially announced by Tashkent, as explained by a leading Canadian expert Evgeny Olkhovski. Simultaneous ban of extremely (?) religious, entertaining, or opposition web-sites may probably be explained, for every country decides in its own way how to deal with such issues. But what is the explanation to the ban on CIS leading internet portal for traders and investors, which does not discuss opposition or religious topics?
 
Reason for editorial policy of "Market Leader": investors are not interested in internal fights for power in any country, as they are far from it (opposite is demonstrated only by active help of G.Soros during the "Revolution of Roses" in Georgia and "Orange Revolution" in Ukraine in 2004). The rest 99.9% of investors are always interested only in the profit that they may gain by means of hundreds finance tools, such as shares, bonds, futures , stock indexes ranging from American Dow Jones or S&P500 to Russian RTS or MICEX, forex, bank deposits, real estate, tourism investments, precious metals (gold, brilliants), gas, oil, cotton, and much more.
 
The task of investors magazine is to give trends, having objectively shown all benefits and drawbacks of each of 200 world countries (economy, banks, tourism, real estate, government bonds, shares of leading enterprises, production volumes of local enterprises that influence future’s rate, rating of forex brokers , etc.) or one of several thousand financial instruments that may potentially bring profit to a trader or investor. Such work has no bearing on erotic, entertainment, opposition, or state activity of any country.
 
The task of investor is to join one of the mentioned and calculated tools or to stay aside of it, having understood if he is interested in investing in Uzbekistan, whose benefits include rich natural resources, favourable for transit geographic location, сильнаявласть, практическиполноеотсутствиепреступности (детейможноночьюотпускатьгулять, неволнуясьзаихбезопасность). Или важнее минусы того же Uzbekistanиз за которых в страну легко ввести средства, но как их там сохранить и получить через время обратно?
 
Maybe Tashkent does not need investors? Or maybe, according to the country’s government, there are no objects and spheres attractive for investment? On the contrary, Uzbekistan urgently needs foreign investment, as the country has a lack of currency, the rise of inflation is critical, and Uzbek sum devaluates every year, while only Russia remains the country’s major investor with the share of 60% (RF is the major foreign partner of Uzbekistan – 29.2%, the share of China amounts to 9.5%, Kazakhstan – to 8.3%, South Korea – to 7.4%, and Turkey – to 4.4%. ), and American and European investors do not take the risk of entering the country.
So why is "Market Leader" banned in Uzbekistan? "Needless worry is often combined with the loss of needed", as the Eastern saying goes, which is certainly known to Uzbek top officials.
 
 

What secret of Uzbekistan was revealed at "Market Leader" web-site?

Our expert Evgeny Antipenko (Ukraine) explained that if Tashkent has decided to pose a ban on editions analyzing investment attractiveness of countries and financial tools, it is necessary to understand which secrets have been revealed by the analysts Masterforex-V Academy and "Market Leader" magazine. It is evident that analytical article "For Investors: Who is Dearer to Russia Around CIS? What are the secrets of Russian and Uzbek relationships?" has become the last point. Thereisnoneedtoretellit. Read it and find your own answer to the question "Why truth by the eyes of investors is more dangerous than oppositional speeches?"
 
 

What does not understand the team of President Karimov about internet technologies?

"Internet cannot be banned if the country’s citizens have computers or mobile phones," explains our Czech expert Vladislav Tsarenko with a smile. For example, the easies way for Uzbekistan citizens that are interested in the articles of banned "Market Leader" to have free access to reading the materials is to use one of the following means:
1. Enter the full name of the article into Yandex or  Google searching system (click on the search), and you will see... 12 pages with links to over one hundred internet media that regularly copy this and other analytical articles from the leading internet portal for traders and investors. What shall Karimov’s team do? Shall it ban thousands of web-sites or Google, Yahoo, Bing and other searching systems at once? It is easier to withdraw all computers, smartphones, and mobile phones in the country, having returned to 19th century.
2. Anonymizer – enter this, probably unknown to you, term, and you will see tens of portals, by which any web-site can be reached (this method is used by millions of people on the globe, from office workers, whose employers block social networks like odnoklasniki.ru or vkontakte.ru, to Uzbekistan citizens, whose government restricts reading certain "banned issues" on political grounds). The number of anonymizers keeps rising; therefore, no country has yet managed to block them;
3. Via vpn and proxy server, when you enter internet using the ip address of a different country (monthly fee for vpn service amounts to 8-40 dollars)
 
From"Market Leader": the ban on our news issues and analytic comments to Uzbekistan Republic has truly surprised all journalists. There is nothing more tempting or interesting than something banned. "Wise is the person that avoids excess in his words and deeds," said a philosopher of the great country that Uzbekistan tries to follow. "Let us all be wise," we will add.
"Market Leader" magazine and Masterforex-V Trading Academy hold a questionnaire in Forex forum for traders and investors: Has "Market Leader" won or lost from a ban on its web-portal in Uzbekistan?
 ■ lost, as the citizens of entire country are banned from entering the web-site;
 ■ won, for a news ban from the President’s team is the best advertisement in World Wide Web.
