    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.

    Uzbekistan’s President-elect thanks international monitors in Russian

    On Monday, Uzbekistan’s Central Electoral Commission published the election results, which revealed that Mirziyoyev had garnered 88.61% of the votes

    TASHKENT, December 5 /TASS/. Uzbekistan’s President-elect Shavkat Mirziyoyev, speaking in Russian, thanked international observers from over 40 countries for monitoring yesterday’s presidential election held in the Central Asian country.

    "I would like to thank the monitors and prominent international organizations for actively participating and monitoring the elections and also for their great attention to democratic transformations in Uzbekistan," Mirziyoyev said in a speech delivered at a ceremony at the Uzexpocentre on Monday.

    Over 5,000 people carrying national flags and symbols of the Liberal Democratic Party had assembled to greet the newly-elected president.

    On Monday, Uzbekistan’s Central Electoral Commission published the election results, which revealed that Mirziyoyev had garnered 88.61% of the votes.

    Shavkat Mirziyoyev was born on July 24, 1957 to a family of a TB doctor in the Zaamin township in Soviet Uzbekistan.

    In 1981, he graduated from the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Melioration (now the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Mechanization of Agriculture). He holds a PhD in Technological Sciences. In 1981-1992, Mirziyoyev worked at the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Melioration.

    In 1990, Mirziyoyev was elected deputy of the Supreme Soviet of Uzbekistan;

    In 1994, he became a deputy of the country’s new parliament (Oliy Majilis). He was re-elected to Oliy Majilis in 1999.

    In 1992, Mirziyoyev became the administration chief of the Mirzo-Ulugbek district of Tashkent. In 1996-1999, he was the administrative head of the Dzhiazsky region of Uzbekistan. In 2001-2003, he headed the Samarkand region of Uzbekistan.

    On December 11, 2003, the Uzbek parliament appointed Mirziyoyev the country’s prime minister. He was re-appointed to that post another three times. A year later, Mirziyoyev became a member of the Political Council of the UzLiDeP pro-government party, which was created in Uzbekistan in 2004.

    Mirziyoyev became Uzbekistan’s acting president after President Islam Karimov’s had passed away this past September.

    Putin notes amazing growth of trade turnover between Russia and Uzbekistan

    Imports from Uzbekistan to Russia increased by 55.4% last year

    MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. The bilateral trade and economic ties between Russia and Uzbekistan have intensified, and in some sectors see a remarkable increase in turnover, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

    Putin noted that the documents prepared for this visit indicate a new step in the development of relations between the two countries. He added that with Mirziyoyev as the President of Uzbekistan, "We are witnessing our trade and economic ties intensifying, and we have always paid special attention to it." "It should be noted that in general we keep the trade turnover at a high level. In some positions it grows in a remarkable manner," the President said.

    In particular, Putin talked about light industry and the agro-industrial complex. "Trade turnover in agriculture has more than doubled," the Russian leader said.

    According to Putin, the countries maintain a constant dialogue at the political level, and develop relations in the sphere of security. "Uzbekistan's position in the region is very important to us, keeping in mind the tensions that somehow affect us from neighboring countries, primarily from Afghanistan," he said.

    "We are very pleased that you have found an opportunity to visit Russia," Putin told Mirziyoyev in the beginning of the meeting. Putin also noted that the documents prepared for this visit speak of a serious new step in the development of relations between the two countries.

    According to the materials prepared for the meeting, imports of Uzbek fruit and vegetable products to Russia in 2016 grew by 92% (to $114.2 mln) in value terms, and 2.3-fold in physical terms (to 142,800 tonnes). In general, in physical volumes, the Russian-Uzbek trade turnover grew by 1% last year (while Russian exports slightly decreased, imports from Uzbekistan increased by 55.4%). In terms of value, the trade turnover between the two countries declined by 3.9% in 2016 to $2.726 bln.

    Russia, Uzbekistan team up for military drills at Uzbek Forish ground

    A joint Russian-Uzbek tactical exercise begins at the Forish military range

    TASHKENT, October 3. /TASS/. A joint Russian-Uzbek tactical exercise started on Tuesday at the Forish military range in the mountains of Uzbekistan’s Jizzakh region, sources from the Russian Embassy in Tashkent said on Tuesday.

    "The exercise takes place within the framework of the agreements reached during a state visit of the Uzbek president to Moscow on April 4-5, 2017," they said. According to the embassy, on Monday a military-transport aircraft of the Russian Defense Ministry airlifted Russian military to the Uzbek capital.

    The Russian team includes an operational group from the headquarters of the Central Military District and units of a mountain motorized rifle brigade stationed in Russia’s Tuva republic.

    The military of the two countries are expected to simulate a joint operation to fight terrorist groups and will also train practical skills of blocking and destroying illegal armed groups in the mountains.

    The Forish ground is located 250 kilometers from Tashkent on the northern slopes of the Nuratau ridge at an altitude of 2,169 meters above sea level. The joint military drills are taking place after a 12-year break. The previous exercise bringing together Russian and Uzbek military was held there in 2005.

    Question for the forum:
    I don't know if this has already been discussed (i cannot properly use the search button from my phone).
    Are there any news on the former TAPO (now Tashkent mechanical plant)?

    Russia would have liked that they restarted aircraft production. I thought that that could be an option now that they have a new president...

    Does anybody knows anything about it?

    Thanks

    Uzbekistan tightens the requirements for obtaining citizenship. Candidates must now be able to speak the Uzbek language. This is not the first time that linguistic constraints have been proposed. In the spring, the Ministry of Justice proposed fining officials for using the Russian language.


    Isn't it an antirussian policy?

    From my family's encounters back in the days of the USSR, Uzbeks tended to be arrogant towards Russians. So they are another
    chihuahua statelet with delusions of grandeur compensating for some inadequacy. The problem is that cutting them off may not
    be a smart idea if they become jihadi quislings of NATzO like clowns on the Arabian Peninsula. The prime source of jihadi terror on the
    planet.

    It isn't more so an anti Russian policy but more of trying to gain ultimate control. Uzbekistan is probably thinking more Russian speaking politicians will mean more Russian influence.

    Yeah and they are happy instead to switch to english....bah...

    I know that i am using it here as well, but I believe that slowly the english language will become less and less important... britain is much less relevant now than 50 years ago... the only thing they do is meddling with ngo and secret services and bullshit propaganda in the affairs of other countries... and anyway is going to become soon a large mess...

    And US is in the path of selfdestruction... some of the countries that will emerge from the implosion off US will still have a global relevance, but not all of them will have english as the main official language...


    By the way, maybe there should be a disincentivation of the use of english language in Scotland and Ireland...

    English is the occupiers language, after all (and it is also not the language native to a EU country either)... they should ban the use of english in favour of Scottish Gaelic  and Irish Gaelic respectively...

    It is amusing here in New Zealand... we just had "speak Maori" week, where the news and the weather on tv was in Maori and English, and there is the suggestion that Maori who don't speak Maori have lost touch with their ancestors, or that somehow learning to speak Maori would help other ethnic groups better understand them and their culture... and I wondered that if that were true perhaps I needed to learn to speak Scottish and Welsh to better understand myself...
