Yes, there are. In Kazakhstan, they are called “nur-bots” or “nur-fans”. The former praise the government and criticise the adversaries, while the latter leave positive comments about the domestic policy and activities of public authorities.
Factcheck.kz analysed a few dozens of fake accounts, which left comments on the page of the Foundation of the First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev on social media. They found at least one company that created and ran the bots.
In Kyrgyzstan, the situation is similar, but bots are often called trolls or fakes.
In Tajikistan, bots are called the “Reply-generating farm” (“Fermai chavob”). Long before the social media became popular, every criticism of the authorities in newspapers was followed by a reply written by an anonymous person and published in the following newspaper issue. These publications didn’t specify the authors, and journalists called these articles the production of the “Reply-generating factory” (“Fermai chavob”). Gradually, the “Reply-generating factory” was renamed into the “Reply-generating farm”, but both options are used.
Now, bots in Tajikistan write comments to support the authorities on the internet. However, in this case, unlike other countries, this activity is forced and unpaid. Students and state employees are often involved in this activity.
