CS:GO (region free) - but steam don't let me download game

Hi I activated key for cs:go few days early. And start downloading cs:go beta without any errors.
When I was download half part of game, I click play and received error that my region is different and I can use that key for cs:go game.
After that I remove steam and reinstall them.
I try install cs:go and now I can download cs:go game. I get error about region, but why game start downloading in first time.
And why I can use key (region free) in my country (Uzbekistan)?

I don't use proxy and something else.

Sounds like an issue for support, did you buy it yourself on the steam store or get it retail outside/inside your country?
Or receive it as a gift?

Retail copies of Valve games have ALWAYS been region restricted.

But those from Steam store are region free.

"Valve games", not "Steam games."

Half-Life 2, Episodes, Orange Box, TF2, Portal, CS and CSS - all region-locked (and, thankfully, cheap). Presumably then, same is the case for CS:GO.
