The circus did not go anywhere
All the recent processes in Central Asia took place against the background of no less interesting processes that took place in Russia itself. For example, most recently, residents of the country witnessed a new political reality show, which can be called "the exposure of British spies from the British Embassy." Why show? Everything is very simple. Such information could be the news of the day and no more. Nevertheless, everything was presented as a detailed documentary.

Their home is a prison
The events of the first New Year month in Uzbekistan were marked by the beginning of high-profile trials against human rights defenders and political activists. On January 30, a criminal hearing was launched against a human rights activist from the Fergana Valley, Mutabar Tadjibaeva. The prosecutor's office imposes 17 articles of the criminal code, including libel, extortion, tax evasion. The human rights activist was arrested on October 7 last year on the eve of her departure for the international human rights conference in Dublin.

Chronicle of two weeks
Switzerland has announced its accession to the sanctions of the European Union (EU) against the Uzbek government. Last November, in response to the refusal Of Uzbekistan to conduct an international investigation of the Andijan events, the European Union imposed an arms embargo and published a list of 12 high-ranking officials of Uzbekistan who are banned from entering EU countries. Speaker of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, Rita Baldegger, in her interview with the Uzbek service of Radio Liberty said, “We are against external pressure, we only really want to raise the issue of the state of civil and human rights in Uzbekistan.”

Second Akayev?
Discussion of the draft of the new Constitution continues in Kyrgyzstan. This is how the main demand of last year’s tulip revolution is realized. The new Basic Law should prevent the establishment of an authoritarian regime. For this purpose, it was planned to involve various representatives of civil society in the project. But it became obvious that the open process of work is only an appearance. In fact, a new draft of the Basic Law is being created in the presidential administration. He assigns to Kurmanbek Bakiyev, elected in July, all the powers that the overthrown Askar Akayev had. Bakiyev’s team in every way delays the implementation of the reform.

Turkmenistan on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe
Turkmenistan, a country with huge gas and oil reserves and a population of just over five million people, after 14 years of independent development, was unable to support its retirees and people with disabilities, depriving most of their pensions and benefits. The reason for this was seen by many in the wasteful use of state funds for the same gas and other resources.

Get confused or die?
In Kyrgyzstan, journalists are engaged in an unusual business. Instead of writing about the rallies, they themselves now stand in pickets. Representatives of the fourth government launched a struggle for their rights not only in the central squares of Bishkek, the journalistic protest rallies swept through the southern regions of the republic. It is curious that the state press was at the forefront of protest sentiments. The one that, according to the recently signed presidential decree, was released.

Officer, open your face ...
In Tajikistan, it is good to live to those who are closer to the budget trough. And the closer, the better and more satisfying to live. Bureaucracy in this country has long been turned into a special privileged social class for which, it seems, no laws have been written. Tajik bureaucracy is more than a class, more than political power, it is a special caste that divides and rules at its own discretion. This is "the powers that be."

Textile tiger
The government of Kyrgyzstan has made a decision that will allow the garment industry of the country to be removed from the shadow economy. For those working in this business, standards are established that create real conditions for the legalization of the industry. Now a huge army of shadow businesses can work on a patent on a voluntary basis, which is undoubtedly more profitable than giving large sums to inspectors every month. Today in Bishkek, dozens of underground factories operate, which supply the largest wholesale markets in the region with garments. No one really knows what the real scale of this underground industry is.

Salt field
In the Otrar district of the South Kazakhstan region (SKO), 11 thousand hectares of irrigated land, the country's “golden fund”, was threatened with death. At all times, cotton growing remained a profitable branch of the agricultural sector of SKO. In the successful years, the cotton growers of the region collect about 400 thousand tons of "white gold". Its share of the total gross output of agriculture is 34%. Today, cotton is favored by an increasing number of farms.
