Moscow: The Russian presidential website www.kremlin.ru has been inaccessible in Turkmenistan for the past two days.

A source in the Central Asian republic`s telecom ministry told RIA Novosti the causes for the failure were yet to be identified, adding that there were no apparent political reasons for blocking the Russian president`s official site in the country.

It can only be a technical problem, he said.

First reports that the Kremlin website was unavailable in Turkmenistan came Wednesday, as Ashgabat was hosting a summit of the Commonwealth of Independent States, a loose association of post-Soviet nations.

The problem was spotted by reporters who had arrived to cover the event.
