In addition, on the eve of the press conference in the capital, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev promised to deal with regular blocking of social networks.

"I am an active user of social networks. I personally use my Twitter account. Therefore, frankly, I was not quite aware that social networks were blocked. But, of course, the relevant instructions will be given to law enforcement agencies, - said Tokayev.
