The call will be free for city numbers and mobile operators. The assistance will also be provided through text chat.
According to Deputy Prime Minister Tamara Duissenova, the coordinated work of the system will make it possible to provide prompt legal, psychological, and advisory assistance to citizens, preventing the negative consequences of unlawful actions against women and children.
