“In this regard, I congratulate the representatives of domestic journalism, the media and the media sphere on this significant success, which has become one of the results of important steps taken under the leadership of the President of our country to ensure freedom of speech, the formation of mass media expressing public opinion, as “fourth power,” the head of the press service said.

It should be recalled that in 1993, the UN Assembly General proclaimed May 3 as World Press Freedom Day.
