Pavlodar residents are outraged with the ashtrays with Kazakhstan national emblem being sold in the city. The citizen Milya Suleimenova told Interfax-Kazakhstan on April 11 that she bought one the these ashtrays in one of the shops for 1,300 tenge ($9).
“In fact, this is a spittoon with our national emblem,” the buyer said. According to her, the authorities have to pay their attention to the problem of the use of Kazakhstan national symbols on the objects where they are not supposed to be, especially on the ones like “underwear, ashtrays, etc.”
The use of the state symbols is regulated by a special law in Kazakhstan. In particular, it obliges the residents to respect state symbols and local executive authorities to control their usage.
