Kazakhstan created a service counter Cohen

February 16 2007

Kazakhstan has established information service, which will attempt to restore the country's image suffered because of the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and his comic hero, a Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev.

Most states had long angered the activities of Cohen. And when I came out the movie "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan", in which the country was shown full of anti-alcoholism and degenerates, they went into a rage. After months of debate, the Kazakhstan Foreign Ministry formed a special Committee of International Information, which will work to improve the image of the country.

It should be noted, before the Government has already taken countermeasures against Sasha Baron Cohen - the direct threat to the court to visit the country (which he never was) and get acquainted with the object of their jokes.

Recall the picture "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" has become a sensation last kinosezona. The film has collected more than $ 240 million in worldwide box office and provided Cohen a Golden Globe, and the picture Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. In Russia and Kazakhstan, the movie was banned for rental.

Recently it was reported that Cohen signed a contract for filming the second part of the picture about the adventures of Borat Sagdiyev, reports Reuters.
