When in 1997 journalist Vitaly Portnikov published his article under the heading “CIS - Commonwealth of Independent Gas Pipelines” in “Obshchaya Gazeta”, the problem of transportation of raw materials and related political differences then concerned mainly the European and Caucasian parts of the former Soviet Union. And the main object of discontent of the Kremlin was the new education of GUUAM, which united Georgia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova.

Geopolitical bridge
When it comes to building a bridge between Tajikistan and Afghanistan over the Pyanj River, one can hear that the Soviet Union did not build this bridge due to fears of uniting two Tajik banks. It is no secret that the policy of the Soviets in the region was anti-Tajik. This is evidenced by the so-called history of the division of Central Asia into zones of influence of Britain and Tsarist, and later Bolshevik Russia. As a result of this separation, almost 30 million Tajiks who previously inhabited one country turned out to be residents of three different states — Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Uzbekistan. And of these, only 5 million today live directly in Tajikistan.

Empty "Mecca"
The abundance of national parks and reserves, numerous architectural and historical monuments, modern networks of hotels, tourist complexes, engineering and transport communications are all on their face to turn this land into a tourist Mecca. The World Trade Organization (WTO) has determined the capacity of Uzbekistan’s tourism resources at one million people per year. Such predictions also fascinate local businessmen. A new private hotel “Omar Khayyam” in the city of Bukhara, like many of the 163 other hotels throughout Uzbekistan, were built to receive foreign tourists. “A lot is being done for the development of tourism, a lot is invested in this business.

Slow lake killing
Today, in Central Asia, in addition to economic and political issues, there are acute problems of using water resources between countries, as well as depletion and pollution of water. In addition, there is a dangerous ecological situation that could lead to the disappearance of one of the largest inland waters of the world - Lake Balkhash. This problem today requires an immediate solution. Kazakhstan is the largest Central Asian state.
