Earlier this month, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government, Sergei Ivanov, visited Uzbekistan. The Russian and Uzbek media did not attach due importance to this, although some of the results of the meeting arouse some interest. Thus, four documents were signed between the parties, three of which related to migration policy: on labor activity and protection of the rights of migrant workers, on cooperation in combating illegal migration, and a readmission agreement. Of course, such agreements are necessary. But there is another side to the coin. The documents also provide for the fight against illegal migration and readmission. The subject of regulation of the readmission agreement will be the procedure for the return, reception and transit of persons staying on the territory of the state parties with violation of the laws on the entry, exit and stay of foreigners. It is not specified who exactly will be subject to return, for example, to Uzbekistan and for what offenses. Considering that the Russian side will be responsible for the implementation of the agreement by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Security Service and the Federal Migration Service, which have been actively cooperating with their Uzbek counterparts in recent years, it is possible that such a mechanism will be applied to persons whom Uzbekistan would like to return. For example, political refugees, those who are suspected of participating in the Andijan events, representatives of religious and other opposition. On this occasion, the editors of Oasis invite you to share the opinion of lawyers, if such opinions are available.
Another important document is a contract between the Ilyushin company and TAPOiCH for the production of two Il-76MF aircraft for Jordan. This contract can be considered a consolation bonus from the Russian side. Recall that TAPOiCH had a contract with the Chinese side for the production of a group of Il-76MD machines (worth about $ 1.5 billion), which the Russians almost killed in Uzbekistan, directly by the Chinese suggesting production of more modern Il-76MF. According to the latest data, the TAPOiCH will also enter the Russian United Aircraft Building Corporation, which Russia has long sought and which Uzbekistan has long resisted.
Although I am not a lawyer, but a human rights activist, I want to add. Practically full control of the special services of Uzbekistan over all citizens of Uzbekistan in Russia will be established. 1. To travel to Russia you will need to get permission and, of course, pay. And this permission may not be given. 2. All those who left with permission will also have to be periodically noted in Russia in some way, to prove their legitimacy. In doing so, they will have to indicate their place of work, type of activity and, of course, earnings. 3. Those who went to Russia without the permission of the authorities of Uzbekistan, or in any way will not be able to prove their loyalty at the place of stay in Russia, will be considered illegal migrants with all relevant sanctions from the special services of Russia and Uzbekistan. 4. Upon arrival in Uzbekistan, citizens, naturally, will have to pay some sums as a tax to the budget of Uzbekistan. Conclusion - the citizens of Uzbekistan will actually be serfs in Russia.
