Memorial prayer
Andijan ... A year ago, it became a watershed, the Rubicon, which clearly divided the modern history of Uzbekistan into fake-democratic and cynical-totalitarian periods. The Russian press paid little attention to this, however, just as little attention was paid to this country before that. It is understandable. Vladimir Putin “tied” Islam Karimov to himself with his unconditional support and silent approval of his actions.

Andijan - a year later
Exactly a year ago, on May 13, government troops of Uzbekistan with heavy indiscriminate fire shot hundreds of Andijan residents who had left for Bobur Square. The background to this massacre is known: in June 2004, 23 local businessmen were arrested in Andijan, accused of “religious extremism” in connection with their alleged participation in the underground Islamic group Akromiya.

Chronicle of two weeks
Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev’s first official visit to Russia was held under anti-American sentiment. Before the trip to Moscow, the head of the Kyrgyz state made a number of statements to the American administration. In it, he, in particular, demanded by June 1, 2006 to resolve the issue of the existence of the American military base Manas near Bishkek. The situation developed in a completely unpredictable direction. But, the administration of President George W. Bush made a "knight's move."

Test of strength
A year after the tragic events in Andijan in May 2005, it can be stated that these events turned out to be a serious test of the strength of diplomatic relations between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.

Andijan lessons for Astana ideologues
The Andijan events in Uzbekistan, the “color revolution” in Kyrgyzstan and the presidential elections in Kazakhstan gave many reasons for all sorts of predictions. Now, it seems that calm has been restored, but isn't it a calm that happens before the storm?

Marriage of convenience
It would be naive to believe that the current relationship between Tashkent and Moscow is built on good neighborly and mutually beneficial conditions, as diplomats and heads of state would not try to present them in bright colors. First of all, it is a political marriage based on the adverse climate of Europe and the United States to the anti-democratic regime of Uzbekistan, and the need for Russia to partner allies in opposing NATO expansion and Western influence in the post-Soviet space.

Kyrgyzkoye raspute
A year has passed since the time of the notorious Andijan events, which, together with the events that took place earlier in Kyrgyzstan, caused serious political shifts in the region of Central Asia.

Where to go?
On the eve of the anniversary of the Andijan tragedy, a conversation about the present day of Uzbekistan seems to be very appropriate. The regime of President Islam Karimov quite successfully for himself suffered all the past, associated with the "May Meat Grinder", the troubles and to a certain extent returned the previous self-confidence. The world community has already managed to forget about this tragedy, and it is not surprising that the past year was full of many events that are not inferior in scale and drama to what happened in Andijan a year ago.

Thirsting over the river
Tajikistan is a country of eternal glaciers, of the cleanest mountain lakes, of many turbulent mountain rivers; it is ranked 2nd in the CIS and 8th in the world in terms of water resources. Alas, this, however, does not mean the presence of the same water in the homes of residents, not only in the countryside, but also in the cities, including the capital.

Arychnoe water supply
The problem of public access to quality, drinking water is more relevant than ever for Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyzstan has an excess amount of this resource. The main source of drinking water in Kyrgyzstan is groundwater. Meanwhile, 99.1% of the urban population and 72.1% of the rural population have access to quality drinking water.
