Is the battle for Uzbekistan coming?

64



NATO's eastward attack continues. Following Eastern Europe, the alliance wants to dramatically increase its presence in Central Asia, displacing Russia and China from there. Brussels believes that you can achieve your goals by strengthening America’s influence in Uzbekistan: thanks to the control of this key state, the entire region will be in the hands of the West.

Tactics of penetrating expansion

According to James Appathurai, Special Representative of the NATO Secretary General for the Caucasus and Central Asia, the alliance has already agreed on cooperation priorities with Uzbekistan. In particular, one of the main directions will be the reform of the armed forces of the Central Asian Republic. Particular attention is paid to the joint fight against terrorism - against the background of the withdrawal of American troops from neighboring Afghanistan, this problem is becoming especially urgent for Tashkent.

However, James Appathurai believes that the termination of the Afghan war and the opening of the NATO Office of Liaison and Interaction with the Central Asian countries in the capital of Uzbekistan are in no way interconnected. The official reports that the bureau allegedly simply “relocated” - previously it was located in Astana. As before, the emissaries of the alliance will operate in all countries of the region, not only in Uzbekistan.

Also, the NATO mission will operate in Afghanistan: after the de-occupation of the republic, there will be 8-12 thousands of people who will be engaged in additional training for the Afghan army. If she does not scatter, of course.

Cooperation between the North Atlantic Alliance and Uzbekistan has been going on since 1994, in fact, since the launch of the Partnership for Peace program. For two decades, NATO has been able to firmly take root in the republic. For example, almost all officers of the high command of the Uzbek army received training either in the United States or in the allied countries of Washington, and are now quite loyal to the West. In addition, the United States "cleared" the market for its corporations: Uzbekistan bought military equipment mainly from Western companies, and not from Russian ones.

Later, Tashkent became a participant in the Process Planning and Analysis Program, which prepares for joint exercises and operations. Uzbekistan was also accepted into the Virtual Silk Road project, aimed at providing universities and research centers with Internet access using the North Atlantic Alliance satellite network.

With the beginning of the war in Afghanistan, Washington tried to involve Uzbekistan in other structures, because America needed reliable rear. Under pressure from Washington, Tashkent began to support Western occupation forces in the neighboring republic from 2002, and opened the airspace for those alliance planes that carry non-military cargo. US and German aircraft received the right to land at Uzbek airports.

However, in 2005, relations between the United States and Uzbekistan deteriorated. The reason was the anti-government uprising in Andijan, the details of which are still unknown: the Islamists or adherents of the “color revolutions” tried to capture the city, but the insurgency quickly turned into a farce and the troops suppressed it. Actually, America would have reacted with indifference to this event if it were not for one “but”: at that critical moment Tashkent asked for help not from Washington, but from Moscow and Beijing. Americans did not forgive Islam Karimov, and ranked him in the category of "rogue".

However, due to the strengthening of Russian positions in the Central Asian region, the United States was forced to make concessions to Uzbekistan, and in 2008, they resumed cooperation with it. A year later, Tashkent again opened the borders of the state to deliver non-military goods of NATO to Afghanistan. The possibility of attracting Uzbek companies to modernize the Afghan transport infrastructure is being considered.

Is Uzbekistan a “key” to Central Asia?

The transfer of the NATO Bureau of Liaison and Interaction with the Central Asian countries to Tashkent is not an accident: today Uzbekistan is a key player in the pleiad of the Central Asian republics. The Uzbek diaspora lives in almost all countries of the region, which means that Tashkent is more influential than it seems at first glance.

At the same time, Kazakhstan, where the bureau had previously been located, has in recent years become very close to Russia and is no longer viewed by Washington as a potential ally. Kazakhstan is part of the CSTO - the military-political bloc, which in the West is regarded as a hostile structure.

To involve Uzbekistan in an alliance with the North Atlantic alliance is one of the most important tasks that the White House sets itself. Tashkent is as important for Central Asia as Kiev is for Eastern Europe. Having seized Uzbekistan, the United States can begin expansion in any direction - to the west, to Iran and the Caspian Sea, to the east, to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, or to the north, to Kazakhstan and Russia. Also through the territory of Uzbekistan are the main communications leading to Afghanistan.

Nevertheless, Alexander Knyazev of the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of Oriental Studies believes that the United States does not intend to deploy its military bases in Uzbekistan. Tashkent does not want to be involved in acts of aggression against neighboring states. Despite all attempts by Washington to incline Uzbekistan to the side of NATO, Islam Karimov insists on the neutral status of the republic.

The leader of Uzbekistan understands what danger his people can endure if he is involved in NATO structures. Against Uzbekistan, all the neighbors will immediately take up arms who regard his friendship with Washington as a veiled threat. In addition, Moscow and Beijing, which are much closer to Uzbekistan than the overseas empire, will be unhappy with the actions of Tashkent.

Islam Karimov is afraid of incurring the wrath of Russia and China. He knows that without these strategic partners, Uzbekistan will not survive for long, and the “friendship” with America will turn out for the country about the same thing that is happening in Ukraine now. And so, the existing self-isolation of Uzbekistan will intensify, since relations with the most important trading partners will turn out to be flawed. The republic will not be able to feed itself; Ukraine is the best example: less than a month after the commencement of the trade blockade of Russian goods, the economy of the country was almost destroyed.

Meanwhile, Tashkent is ready to cooperate with NATO in the fight against terrorism. The political leadership of neighboring Afghanistan is completely under the control of Washington. It is from there, from the Afghan mountains, that the most significant threat to Uzbekistan emanates, and therefore Islam Karimov must inevitably put up with the force that controls Kabul. These are currently Americans.

But after the withdrawal of the occupation forces of NATO, the situation could change radically. If the balance of power is not in favor of America, Tashkent will immediately change the vector of foreign policy, joining the CSTO or any other structure, in alliance with which it will be able to curb the Islamic threat.

Thus, Russia has no need to sharply pull Islam Karimov away for “friendship” with the North Atlantic alliance. The leader of Uzbekistan is aware of what he is doing and will not cross the conditional line. Most likely, in the coming years, Tashkent will remain neutral, despite the tempting offers to deploy NATO military bases. Russia and China, by their very existence, warn Karimov against radical actions, and if they even hint to him about the undesirability of certain actions, the president of Uzbekistan will immediately correct his plans, taking into account the authoritative opinions of Moscow and Beijing.

        very prudent and objectively understands the situation.
        "In addition, the US “cleared” the market for its corporations"as well as about the fact that the United States has strengthened its position in Uzbekistan in 20 years - this is far from the case. Since 2005, many democratic NGOs have been dispersed in Uzbekistan, and the rest are under strict control.
        A discussion of cooperation between Uzeyekistan and NATO, and why not, considering that NATO has brewed porridge in Afghanistan and is now folding.

        Just heard the news, Obama arrived at the US base in Afghanistan and wished to meet with Karzai, but the Afghan ruler dismissed Obama, considering it an insult. He said: "We are delighted to welcome the US president to the presidential palace, but not to the military base."
        A similar situation was when Napoleon called the Pope to the forest, to a field camp to honor an audience, and the Pope came to him. Bonaparte did this intentionally to check whether to humiliate himself or not.
        So Karzai has eggs. laughing
        For the United States, all sorts of "stans" are a hot spot, where the population is livestock, they will never respect them, and will haughtily look from high on, both in politics and in ordinary life. Uzbeks come to your senses. Ordinary Americans don't even know where your country is.

      Everything will depend on which option the National Security Council of Uzbekistan accepts, I heard real power in their hands.

      Everyone knows that the United States does not have equal allies, there are 3 things that they need from other countries that are loyal to them: 1) the population is cannon fodder that can be consumed by expanding the expansion of America, as in Iraq, for example 2) the country's resources that can be deflate for nothing, driving the country into debt, investing candy wrappers 3) just a strategic place where the US army is based, is simply a target for dissatisfied terrorists.

          Yes, and here lie, do not lie or henpecked. Everyone is simply perplexed - Karimov either enters or leaves the CSTO, or flirts with the NATO. It’s time to somehow determine or even declare a neutral status. And for the largest Uzbekistan in Central Asia, such behavior is somehow not solid. It is clear that the US and NATO control in Afghanistan is not enough for influence in the region. They would be closer to China and the Russian Federation, to the Caspian. During the existence of the base in Kyrgyzstan, there were 2 overthrows of the president, in Uzbekistan (the airbase in Khanabad) - events in Andijan. Karimov is not a fool, the second time to step on a rake. Moreover, he understands that the NATO base is a freeze on investment and trade with the PRC (they have good plans), cooling with the Russian Federation. In short, I do not understand Karimov. Not because of the decommissioned Amer’s APCs or what other gingerbreads to leave the CSTO?

            What did the CSTO do when the Kirghiz slaughtered ethnic Uzbeks in the south of the country? Karimov is trying to do everything to keep a balance. He will turn away from NATO and the USA, give the IMU a green light, and if from Russia, again the Kirghiz will begin to do dirty tricks.

    Nonsense. Uzbekistan has long been under China, which will never allow either Russia or the United States with NATO to gain a foothold in Uzbekistan. And indeed, all of Central Asia near China, with Turkmenistan, so much gas flows to China that Gazprom, with its hypothetical 38 billion cubic meters of gas, is just resting.

        How much gas? At least some numbers ...

        In September last year, Turkmenistan and China signed a contract to increase gas purchases by 25 billion m3 annually and to build the SECOND gas pipeline branch, bringing the annual volume to 65 billion m3. it is not difficult to calculate that now the annual volume is about 40 billion m3.
        In addition, Uzbekistan supplies 6 billion m3 annually, intending to increase volumes to 10 billion m3 annually.
        According to RIA Novosti, citing a source at Uztransgaz, the increase in gas supplies is due to the completion of the construction of the third line of the Uzbek section of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline at the end of this year.

        Central Asia is much more important for China in terms of gas supplies to Russia because the increase in volumes is constantly growing and new gas pipelines are being built ALREADY, and not in 5-6 years ... Therefore, China will not give Central Asia to anyone.

          To argue and philosophize about what is good and what is bad is of course cool. "Drive with a filthy broom", "NATO GO HOME" and so on and so on are also cool. Current, our poor republic is not so vyaknut moget. So it turns as it can. Or do you all really think that NATO will settle down here? Will our Abrams and Raptors start buying? there! The article is more hysteria than reality. The main military technical cooperation with Uzbekistan has been and will be current with the Russian Federation. Ackte! All weapons are Russian. "Preparation", "countering terrorism" are just words. Remember what happened when Uzbekistan left the CSTO? the main theses were - "there are no military bases of foreign states on our territory", "Uzbekistan will not be in military blocs." And I do not think that this will change overnight, because it will be a clear slap in the direction of Russia, which in fact is pure absurdity. Everyone was attracted by the pomp of the opening, and the noise created by the media. Although there is the same NATO office in Moscow, or is the Russian Federation not cooperating with NATO, not cooperating and will not cooperate?

But the conclusion is not “the RF is possible, everyone else is not allowed,” but rather from the excesses of the great power and the deliberate acuteness of the information provided. The fact itself is not worth a damn, but the headlines "The Battle for Uzbekistan is Coming" definitely attract attention and give rise to the "righteous" anger of the masses.

    Islam Karimov will have enough wisdom and experience how to maintain his neutrality and loyalty to the policies of Moscow, Beijing and Astana under the pressure of NATO. Too many things unite us and the economy of Uzbekistan is very dependent on the markets of these countries, not only production and raw materials, but also labor! One has only to think how many dehkans work in the southern regions of Kazakhstan and how many labor migrants work on construction sites and the service sector in the vastness of Russia and Kazakhstan !!

      What kind of loyalty of I. Karimov towards Moscow can we talk about? He withdrew Uzbekistan from the CSTO, shut down almost all Russian business in his country, canceled Victory Day, calling it "Memorial Day", while spitting on the memory of WWII veterans, constant arrests of Russian citizens, there is no official Russian language there in principle, as in Kyrgyzstan, blackmail and extortion from the authorities in relation to tourists! And according to the last phrase I wrote, I have a specific example.

          yah? And how did Islam Karimov threaten a war if Russia began to build hydroelectric power stations in Kyrgyzstan, they forgot? And then he quickly ran to NATO to negotiate.

    there is a large Uzbek diaspora in Afghanistan. And Abduganievich takes this factor into account. Now he is just flirting with the West. And he does not want to lose control over the Afghan Uzbeks. As soon as the US withdraws its troops and leaves only the bases, it will need allies. And the Uzbeks of Afghanistan are a real force. It is here that Abduganievich will try to "play" ... And do not forget, Karimov has ruled since Soviet times, and the situation in the region has changed more than once since then, but he is still in power!

    Do not worry) We just want to snatch a good jackpot and freebies under the noise of NATO's withdrawal from Afghanistan. Is this already a "rapprochement" with NATO in 23 years? second? third? fourth? America was not taught anything. When we squeeze the maximum out of NATO, then we will send them. It was not for nothing that the IAK flew to China immediately after GDP) The East is a delicate matter)

    Such "cunning" have already been. Now in the der ... me up to our ears and can't get out. Americans are not. And for my candy wrappers I take very specific things. Make no mistake. You can't sit on two, let alone three chairs.

    One to one like Yanukovych. And I want to climb the Christmas tree and not tear the Uzbek on the heel. Karimov has one interests - family.

    just doesn’t see where America is there, there’s some kind of nasty thing that will happen. did you forget about the Uzbeks in NATO? They won’t let you grow cotton in Brussels. Be closer to Russia and you will live much calmer than now

      not a single cotton man is fed up however ... but when I see a pro-striped jib with a large antenna on the road, I see an obstacle in my way and at that moment I don't give a shit about the rules - I overtake impudently ... God grant me a cool car and I’ll start cutting

    Putin said over the weekend that our specialists on the territory of the former USSR did not work. It’s time to start working, otherwise we’ll get solid Ukraine along the borders,

      The question is, what kind of specialists? Demoman-saboteurs, of course. But agents of influence in the post-Soviet space are obliged to work and preferably more fruitfully.

    This NATE must be reminded who stomped its land in 1945 and whose tanks on a pedestal in Germany !!! This hysterical NATA, as I understand it, is not able to set priorities correctly - well, this Ukrainian auto party with banderlogs will pass, with what eyes it will look at us (we still have to cooperate with us, but only I think on our terms). And this warlike cry regarding the strengthening of cooperation in the bloc itself - is it possible that the girl Rassmunser thinks to fight with us, this girl is not afraid that her J.O.P.U. they will tear both the British flag and the German flag and all the flags of this block. And the leader of Uzbekistan, I think, understands how all these games will end with NATO near Russia. The Uzbek people are wise people !!!

    Karimov is a very wayward politician, and if he doesn’t like something, then the mattresses will fly out with a bang! As far as I remember, he did not join any unions and did not swear to anyone in friendship and brotherhood! Early rejoice mattress covers!

    For two decades, the NATO bloc was able to firmly take root in the republic.

    I ask for more details on how, while living in Uzbekistan, I did not notice this


    For example, almost all the officers of the high command of the Uzbek army were trained either in the United States or in the allies of Washington, and are now quite loyal to the West.

    What a phrase ALMOST EVERYTHING. Please, by the family. DESA.

    Relations in Uzbekistan to the United States and NATO, both among the existing military and among the HUGE number of MILITARY PENSIONERS residing in the Republic of UZBEKISTAN, are extremely NEGATIWNO. Most UZBEKISTAN citizens can be attributed to this number.

    I. Karimov knows very well what he is doing. If we are planning a lot here in the comments, then even more so ... The only main players who sincerely need a steadily developing Uzbekistan are the Russian Federation and the PRC. And I. Karimov knows about it not by hearsay. Andijan was organized by the states, and V.Putin was the only one who supported I.Karimov at that moment, and he did the right thing, everyone would lose, except amers. It would be worse than Ukraine ... So I. Karimov, despite all the visible "incomprehensible" actions, knows who will lend his shoulder if something happens, especially since there is a bilateral agreement with the Russian Federation in this regard. Personally, my opinion is that all the visible curtsies in the direction of the Amers is something similar to Stalin's actions before the beginning of the Second World War. Because the Americans will strike the next blow in Central Asia. It is very profitable for them to do it here, it is not for nothing that the Uyghur factor is strengthening in the PRC, and the Russian Federation will also have that “heartburn” when the already bearded “democracy” from the south will push for it. Hence the answer to the question why the FMS is not so radically fighting the Gaster, because with their global expulsion, the above process will accelerate. Also, the answer to the question why the Russian Federation from the beginning of the year began to intensively arm the army of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. For some reason, the situation is seen this way ...

    SGA was originally formed as a slave empire that later became a neo-slave empire. Replacing slave chains with "democracy" - the goals are the same. And what about Kyrgyzstan? It was as feudal before the USSR, so it became after. They want to degrade further - the flag is in their hands. The old generation is in the pen, and the new one trades in the vastness of the Russian Federation. And for those who plow, it makes no difference at all. If only there was a diversion from the bai ditch. So there is a battle to control the Uzbek elite. Yes, she agrees. Who would give more. There is no other and will not be there. Metal, damn it.
