TV Acts, Adverts That Involve Women To Be Prohibited By Taliban Govt

The Taliban government through its ministry has prohibited TV networks from showing female acts.

The Taliban government in laying ground rules for TV networks in Afghanistan has prohibited the organizations from broadcasting programs that it considers to be immoral. One of the guidelines that are part of its “religious guidelines” stipulates that the TV networks should not show soap operas or even dramas that feature female actors. In issuing the guideline, the conservative Taliban government is going against its earlier promise of being moderate on women issues unlike they were in the past.

The proscription also came with instructions that mandated the organizations to destroy films or shows that went against Afghan and Islamic values. These instructions threw women in the country into further turmoil as they realized they could not hold on to the promises made by the Islamic organization when it took over the government recently.

Cryptocurrencies Bear High Risks – Putin

On Tuesday, Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, voiced his criticism regarding the state of the criticism sector at the “Russian Calling” investment forum in Moscow.

According to local news outlet lenta.ru, the president made the following remarks, as translated: “It is not backed by anything, [and] the volatility is colossal, so the risks are very high. We also believe that we need to listen to those who talk about those high risks.”

Putin called for the greater monitoring and regulation of cryptocurrencies and pointed out that certain countries worldwide are seeing significant adoption of digital currencies. Currently, cryptocurrency regulation is still in its infancy in Russia. Although the government is considering the launch of a central bank digital currency, at least eight federal laws and five legislative codes must be changed for the digital ruble to take effect.

Furthermore, no regulation exists in the country regarding cryptocurrency mining. This has led some to claim that $2 billion in crypto mining revenue is generated annually in Russia, but on that, no taxes are paid. Due to the lack of a regulatory framework, cryptocurrency use has soared among ordinary Russians, with transactions surpassing $5 billion each year.

In other parts of the former Soviet Union, cryptocurrencies are also rapidly gaining in traction. Kazakhstan has become the world’s largest Bitcoin (BTC) miner by hash rate, and its president is seeking to collect more taxes from such activities to fund the country’s expenses. In Ukraine, the government is actively encouraging legal crypto operations. Last year, the city of Olsztyn, Poland, began adopting the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain for emergency services.
