I get that it's not a right thing to do, but anyway we don't have any links to those pages.
For some reason our CTO decided it would be right to not return 404 for these pages (e.g. google might crawl them just because it thinks they exist). And when we lunch the country the page becomes live.
Do you think it's stupid and we shall change it?
However I don't think it's the reason for the problem described in the beginning of the page (and I did not see you saying it is).
