    Question for Khepesh, will Russia-Uzbekistani ties improve after this? Karimov was a Kaffka-esque clown show, he's like the secular equivalent of Erdogan, so I'm not too sorry for his death to be honest.

    Improve probably, and that Mirziyoev will become president. At this moment the acting president is Chairman of the Senate, Nigmatilla Yuldashev, tho this is because it is what the constitution says, and he is not in the running to become real president. Tho any improvement will not be large and that Uzbekistan's relations with other countries will remain more or less as it is now. This article by editor in chief of "Fergana" Daniil Kislov, dismisses the idea of "clan warfare" between Samarkand and Bukhara, or really any fighting as some are predicting, and that it is in the interests of Russia, neighboring countries and America to preserve the status quo. Of course there is always the possibility of unforseen events and there is no precedent for what happens when new president is needed, so for a few days at least there must be an element of doubt about this all happening peacefully. I will go with what Kislov says as everything he has said since last Sunday has been 100%, and I think that can only be the case if he had a direct line deep into centers of power in Tashkent. https://life.ru/t/мнения/896800/kto_budiet_novym_iurtbashi

    Putin: Uzbek people can count on Russia’s support

    The Russia president met with Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev

    SAMARKAND, September 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that the Uzbek people and the leadership of the republic can count on Russia entirely, as the most reliable friend.

    "Of course, we very much hope that all that was established by President Islam Karimov will be continued. We, for our part, are doing everything possible to support this way of our mutual development, to support the people of Uzbekistan, the Uzbek leadership. You can count on us entirely as the most reliable friends", Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

    He said that "Islam Karimov has laid a very solid foundation in the relationship between our two countries, built our relationship as strategic partnership."

    Vladimir Putin said that during their talks, Islam Karimov, speaking about the prospects of bilateral relations, used to say that the republic’s potential depended on them. "We have always valued this very much", the Russian president said. He added that Russia cherishes relations with Uzbekistan, the ties between the two countries’ peoples and cultures.

    Uzbek PM Mirziyoyev appointed acting president

    The country's parliament has recommended Central Election Commission to set the date for presidential election

    TASHKENT, September 8. /TASS/. Uzbekistan’s Prime Minister Shavkat Mirziyoyev has been appointed as the acting president, the republic’s governmental portal said on Thursday announcing a decision approved by the parliament.

    "The chambers of Oliy Majlis (Supreme Assembly) passed a joint resolution on temporarily devolving responsibilities and powers of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan to Prime Minister Shavkat Mirziyoyev," the statement said.

    The parliament has recommended the Central Election Commission to organize presidential elections in accordance with the country’s law.

    Chairman of the Senate Nigmatilla Yuldashev put forward the proposal on Mirziyoyev’s appointment "taking into consideration his experience of many years at the top positions in the state government and administration bodies, and also respect among the population," the statement read.

    The heads of factions of political parties, deputies and senators backed the proposal due to "the need to maintain stability, ensure public security and order, and to efficiently solve the most important issues of political, social and economic development of the country in current conditions."
    Central Election Commission to set presidential election date in coming days

    The Central Election Commission (CEC) of Uzbekistan will soon appoint the date of the country’s presidential election, a CEC representative told TASS on Thursday.

    "We will certainly in the coming days hold a meeting and determine the date of the early election of a new head of state in connection with the death on September 2 of the first President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov", the source said. "In accordance with the law, the election must be held within three months", he added.

    Uzbekistan’s first President Islam Karimov died after suffering a stroke at the age of 78 on September 2.

    Islam Karimov was born on January 30, 1938 in Samarkand, a city in eastern Uzbekistan. Karimov had ruled Uzbekistan since 1989, when he became the First Secretary of the republic’s Communist Party. In March 1990, he became the first president of the republic. In 1991, Karimov won the first presidential election in Uzbekistan and served as president for five years. He retained his top post following nationwide referendums in 1995 and 2002, and after direct elections in 2000, 2007 and 2015.

    Karimov is one of the longest-serving presidents in the former Soviet states. He remained in power for 26 years. In addition, the president was awarded the title Hero of Uzbekistan. Karimov is also a doctor of science and an honorary academic at many educational institutions and establishments throughout many foreign countries. He is the author of books on Uzbekistan’s political and economic development. His works, statements and texts of his speeches were published in a ten-volume book.

    So what are the chances of Uzbekistan joining the Eurasian Union?

    Big country, biggish population, natural resources+potential for growth.
    But a fuck up with the Aral Sea. Too many radical Islamists. And no Ukraine in the Eurasian Union to balance out a potentially high number of potentially v radical Muslims.

    I wonder if a)Eurasian Union integration will happen. And b)would it be desired by Russia and the other Eurasian U members?

    Personally, I think it could be a good idea. But being balanced by some more Christian nations would be desirable.

    Russia needs to meddle and hard in Uzbekistan to prevent the US and its minions from creating another Wahabbi nest designed to
    disrupt Russia. Even if this means invasion, Russia should do it. Let NATO and its propaganda orifices spew all the hate they want.
