Uzbekistan falls asleep waking up USAID

On the eve of news agencies have spread information that on Monday an attack was made on the embassy of the United States of America in Tashkent (Uzbekistan). Unidentified persons threw two incendiary bottles onto the embassy’s territory. The fire started, which eventually managed to extinguish. According to media reports, among the employees of the US diplomatic mission in Uzbekistan, no one was hurt, but the work of the embassy was stopped. Only on the following day, the activity was resumed as before.

From the message press service US embassy in Tashkent:

At the moment we do not have specific information about whether this act was an encroachment on the interests of the Americans and America. In connection with the incident security measures strengthened. An investigation into the incident is underway, and the US Embassy is actively cooperating with local authorities.

Attacks in one form or another on the US embassy in the territory of one of the post-Soviet republics are a rare phenomenon. And in this regard, it is also worthwhile to take a closer look at the activities launched by American diplomats in a region in which interests like Russia are clearly intersecting (and these interests in Uzbekistan are quite traditional, given history), and the United States of America (given their emphasis on permissiveness and the desire to turn more and more new states into their own colonies) in order to be ready for any provocations.

One of the activities of the US Embassy in Uzbekistan, which cannot be said simply by definition, is attracting American NGOs to work in the country. In principle, this is a common practice for the US diplomatic missions, but here it is necessary to single out the NGOs, to which diplomats treat with special trepidation.

This is notorious USAID - United States Agency for International Development (AMR). As is known, USAID worked so actively in Russia at one time that in 2012, the Russian authorities decided to send these “international development workers” to where they came from. It turned out that during the 20 years of its work in the Russian territory, USAID, receiving funds through the State Department and the US Senate, spent 2,7 billion dollars in the Russian Federation. What were such impressive funds spent on? In addition to participating in completely socially significant projects (combating the spread of HIV-AIDS, tuberculosis), the American agency did not disdain to get involved in Russia's domestic policy, promoting overseas interests. In the USAID report on activities in Russia, there are items on cooperation (financing) with more than 2 of hundreds of Russian non-profit organizations, including Memorial, MHG, Golos and other mega-democratic structures that actively submitted vote to the interests of Russia itself the Russian Federation for almost any reason (from the rights of homosexuals and lesbians "restricted" in some place to the "disproportionate use of force in Chechnya"). There is a remarkable episode in the history of USAID activities in Russia, which USAID says with pride:

USAID (...) participated in the drafting of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, Part I of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and the Tax Code of the Russian Federation.

Apparently, we are reaping the benefits of this participation so far ...

And the apogee of the USAID activity can be considered as direct funding for “swamp” unrest in Moscow and several other cities, after which this shop in Russia was covered.

But in Uzbekistan, the “shop” works, and how it works! At the US Embassy in Tashkent, literally a few days before the information about the attack of unknown persons on the diplomatic mission, they were glad to announce that USAID was implementing the project “Partnership in the Rule of Law” in Uzbekistan. At the end of August of this year, Mr. Rosenblum, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Central Asia, visited Tashkent. Together with the US ambassador to Uzbekistan Pamela Spratlen, he went to one of the inter-district courts of Uzbekistan, where he reportedly inspected the implementation of the E-SUD e-court system and found out how “effective” the Uzbek judges and other court personnel were trained by the USAID program.

Uzbekistan falls asleep waking up USAID

Rosenblum said that before the end of the year, in five Uzbek inter-district courts, there will be electronic court systems, and judges will also listen to a course of lectures from USAID specialists.

Amazing concern for the Uzbek inter-district legal proceedings on the part of the US State Department official, isn’t it? .. This is taking into account the fact that there are often obvious problems with the judicial proceedings in the United States, because it can be simply unopposed, well, like, for example, by Guantanamo prisoners or by the CIA special tour ... Speaking of the CIA. The book of the American journalist William Blum, who was an employee of the US Department of State, explicitly states that the CIA used the AMR cover for working in foreign diplomatic missions and often for overtly shaking statehood in those countries in which these diplomatic missions were located. And although we are talking about the activities of the State Department, USAID and the CIA at a time when William Blum himself worked in the foreign policy department (about 60-70-s of the last century), we can say with high probability that until now, these organizations did not undergo fundamental changes, and Washington was hardly a cover in the form of NPOs ...

It turns out that Blum sheds light on the work of Rosenblum in Uzbekistan today. Blum vs Rosenblum - a twist of fate, nothing can be said ...

For what purpose did the US State Department pay attention to the inter-district courts of Uzbekistan? Yes, even with the fact that the courts are one of the branches of republican power, and control over power in any “separately taken” foreign state is the goal of the US foreign ministry. Moreover, the courts can be used to make those sentences that are interesting to the United States, so that they can have the opportunity, as the State Department likes, to present the situation in their own way.

By the way, literally simultaneously with the launch of the project to train Uzbek judges to “properly” use the new system, the US ambassador in Tashkent, Ms. Spratlen, stepped up her activities in terms of meetings with local human rights activists. In particular, Spratlen met and called up with Elena Urlaeva, an notorious activist in the country of the so-called Human Rights Alliance of Uzbekistan (PAH).

On the left - Urlaeva, on the right - Ambassador Spratlen

Urlaeva became known after the events in Andijan in 2005, when the Andijan province (region) experienced all the “charms” of its “Maidan”: the city was in turmoil and the constitutional system was restored only thanks to the tough position of the country's official authorities and specifically Islam Karimov. It was after this that they raised a howl at the US State Department about the "need to investigate the events in Andijan" and the "excessive use of force by the authorities." And at the same time, Ms. Urlaeva showed an overwhelming craving for human rights activities and the denial of the “regime”. Ms. Urlaeva received a variety of “technical assignments” of overseas supervisors, including claims that “the regime has turned Uzbek children into slaves who are attracted to picking cotton”. The keywords “regime” and “slave children” were instantly picked up in the CNN storyline (described on PAH site), which (the TV channel) neither made a single mistake in the name of Urlaev, but made a mistake the other day, signing Russian President Vladimir Putin as “Boris Yeltsin” ...

By the way, about the very after the USA in Uzbekistan, Mrs. Pamela Spratlin. Before sending to Uzbekistan, this lady managed to “inherit” in neighboring Kyrgyzstan, which, as we know, also experienced Maidan shocks. The well-known tirade Spratlen at the embassy post in this country can be considered what she called the relations of Russia and Kyrgyzstan “hindering the democratic development” of the country. This is despite the fact that Spratlen herself had previously worked at the US Vladivostok Consulate. In addition, Lady Spratlen announced that Bishkek’s desire (at that time) to join the Customs Union and the EAEU for the “Kyrgyz people is counterproductive” and (attention!) “Threatens the efforts of the United States to support democracy in Kyrgyzstan.”

God, now God forbid Uzbekistan from the democracy that Spratlen and her superiors tried to implant in Kyrgyzstan ... Yes, and on the activities of USAID, if, of course, the Uzbek comrades want to preserve the independence of their country, it would be time to look without rose-colored glasses.

        Have you seen this embassy? This is not an embassy, ​​but a real fortress with document verification still on the way beyond 50m. He himself witnessed how the young guys in the training program, passing the first cordon and approaching the building with loudspeaker teams from the secret police, stopped, raised the floors of outer clothing and circled around its axis. This is a type of preliminary check for the presence of a martyr’s belt, as I understand it. I can’t even imagine which side and how they could set it on fire there.

      Andrei Yuryevich, that's it - a tourniquet, we have never burned for twenty years. Somehow, it’s even a shame for the power, even the Uzbeks and those are harnessing.

      But as the author correctly noted
      USAID (...) participated in the drafting of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, Part I of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and the Tax Code of the Russian Federation.

      in this regard, the title of "the best head of the central bank" for Nabiullina is no longer surprising, tea is her brainchild.

      So in order not to drive, you need to deal with the economy of your country. The Americans do not bring economic problems with themselves, but only use the local ones to constantly intensify the contradictions. Most of the Asian republics after the collapse of the USSR returned to the Stone Age. The people of the country remained the main resource of such authorities after the collapse of the economy and the Americans worked very well at handling the population, managing protest, using internal problems for their own purposes.

    Yes, and on the activities of USAID, if, of course, the Uzbek comrades want to maintain the independence of their country, it would be time take a look without pink glasses.

    This is not only time, but if Uzbekistan wants to solve its internal affairs on its own, then a long time had to be done. In Central Asia, they are tough on their population, but sometimes aspirated to Western structures. Obviously the bitter experience of other countries did not become a lesson. It’s time to understand for a long time that the deeper one place in the United States licks, the worse it becomes in consequence.

    But in Uzbekistan, the “shop” works, and how it works!

    The author, you will excuse me, of course, but you have not learned the materiel. USAID's activities in Uzbekistan were discontinued back in the shaggy year of 2004, when the leadership of Uzbekistan began to understand that "it’s time to cover the military base in Khanabad and the US NGO, otherwise it will be bad!" By the fall of 2004, all these shops were closed ... in May 2005, Andijan, of course, "blazed", but it was already simple inertia - the worst scenarios did not take place. In this regard, the government of Uzbekistan has worked clearly and tough. Well done, there is nothing to say. I remember then the comments even from the Russians were not flattering, like - "ah, ah, ah - clamp down on democracy!" ...

    Uzbek judges could be trained in the States, according to the same "USAID programs" = why not take money off, if they give it just like that? =. But the fact is that after returning to Uzbekistan, they find themselves back in a system where a step to the left, a step to the right is punishable by shooting, and an attempt to jump up is punishable by cutting off all swinging devices.

    Author, do not drive the wave, by golly. And do not you, wishful thinking really, honestly ...

      Reader, there is no need to translate your own problems with the "materiel" to others.
      As the source, the article indicates the website of the US Embassy, ​​and if this site tells about the activities of USAID and other US NGOs in Uzbekistan, then this fact is given in the article. Here you still reference on how "all the shops were closed" in Uzbekistan.

      If you are too lazy to press, then several excerpts:

      New USAID Regional Mission Central Asia Ambassador Jonathan Eddleton visited Uzbekistan;

      USAID promotes unified medical epidemiological surveillance and strengthens the food security system of Uzbekistan;

      USAID promotes increased exports of fruits and vegetables from Uzbekistan

      USAID Expands Assistance to Uzbekistan Agriculture

      And why is it that USAID is suddenly so concerned about the health and agriculture of the Uzbeks? ..

And if USAID launders money in Central Asia, including Uzbekistan, then what can Mona do about it, I don’t understand? Is it possible to take part in this monetary orgy, at the state scale ... *))) Well, what is it worth, the same Russia to put pressure on Bishkek, and throw out the regional office of USAID?

    Delirious. Like an article about a terrorist attack. Then they abruptly turn to criticism of "bitch" NGOs. those. type author justifies this attack?
    Like the Uzbeks hate America and because of this they throw Molotov cocktails there? Garbage is everything! Probably every second would like to dump there (in the states))
    Any act of terrorism against a diplomatic mission is deeply wrong and bad. Most likely this is possible radical Islamists have worked. And now, after the start of the bombing of the IS by Russia, the same repetition with the diplomatic mission of the Russian Federation is quite possible. Che then you will write, eh?
    district judges ... they are involved in petty matters, such as divorces, property sharing, etc. They cannot control the judiciary. Most likely under control.

    ... "the regime turned Uzbek children into slaves who are attracted to picking cotton."
    Plya Volodin, are you in our "office" half-time chtoli? As it is called SEXOT it seems. Are you in the sense that you refute the fact that children were forced to work in the cotton harvest?

    And then Ms. Urlaeva showed an irresistible craving for human rights activities and exposing the “regime”.

    By the way, two words in dogon, about "Mrs. Uralayeva". You know, about the dead, it's either good or nothing, but still - there was such a hmm ... kadritsa in Russia, Valeria Ilyinichna Novodvorskaya. Without a shadow of a smile, a very, very positive aunt-clown - it’s even very boring without her, in fact. The facts of the biography of Elena Uralaeva and Valeria Novodvorskaya are strikingly similar. The same psychiatric hospital, one for two, probably, albeit separated by time and space, where both were cured of one thing, but infected with something else. And the same view of those in power, both at one and the other - with such bewilderment, pity and a hidden smile, against the background of contentment - "Well, look, the Western tycoons of democracy ... look what kind of martyrs live here! And you are trying to criticize us. ! Oh you, cardboard fools! ".
