official publications, mass media, radio broadcasts, newspapers, Uzbekistan

The media are state controlled and heavily censored in Uzbekistan. Only those publications that are owned and operated by the state are officially sanctioned; a compulsory reregistration of the mass media in December 1993 excluded all independent publications. The media are officially forbidden to express any Islamic and fervent nationalism. Two of the major papers are the Uzbek-language Khalq Sozi (Word of the People) and Russian-language Narodnoye Slovo (Word of the People). Both newspapers are official publications of the Oliy Majlis as well as the Cabinet of Ministers. Television and radio broadcasts are regulated by the state-operated broadcasting company.
