The radio station Mayak has stopped broadcasting in Turkmenistan
The radio station Mayak has stopped broadcasting in Turkmenistan. It was the last Russian source of information in the country after all Russian TV channels were shut down and Russian press was prohibited, Nezavisimaya Gazeta reported. Now, instead of the popular radio station, continuous Turkmen music can be heard. Turkmenistan cites technical reasons: lamp equipment, installed back in 1964, broke down. "To resume broadcasting it is necessary to find $120,000," the Turkmen Communications Ministry reported. "It will take at least a year to restore Mayak," the ministry's broadcasting department said. The only remaining Russian-language source of information is the Neitralny Turkmenistan (Neutral Turkmenistan) newspaper, which publishes mainly presidential decrees and reports to its readers about the achievements of Turkmen people and their leader. Recently, the newspaper informed that Turkmenistan had become a space power: a Russian Dnepr carrier rocket brought a container with the state flag of Turkmenistan and the standard of President Saparmurat Niyazov to space, NG reported.
