They were just as much a part of the Soviet Union as Kazaksthan, no? And they have large populations. Seem like pretty obvious targets for reintegration.

As far as I am concerned, the above former soviet socialist republics seem to have avoided the path of general democratization that routinely followed suit after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The international community is knowledgeable of the malevolent reign of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Islam Karimov, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Sooronbay Jeenbekov(although he was deposed in the subsequent 2020 Kyrgyz Revolution), Saparmurat Niyazov, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Emomali Rahmon.
In fact various studies show that Turkmenistan, widely considered one of the most isolationist countries globally, is only surpassed by North Korea and Myanmar in regards to political repression and transgressions of human rights.
What makes the aforementioned countries unable to liberalize, and is the combination of their tumultuous history, geographic position and their shared soviet past contributing in said outcome?
I'm Japanese but I think I'm part central Asian (double eyelids and large cheeks). I want to learn more about the culture. Please be honest, how would I be viewed and treated as a tourist? Also, I'm 5'8. Would I be short there as a male?
I'm from Uzbekistan and due to the extremely low popularity of reformed theology I want to open the Reformed Church here, this is my biggest dream because I'm so tired of pentecostal heresy that kills true Christianity, so can you pray for this, please?
And my question is: I can't afford USA theologian universities so I'm looking for good books, primarily about logic, metaphysics, and anything else that based on the reformed theology, I found some on the RCs' Ligonier site but looking for more if you know the name of the good books, you are more than welcome to share, thanks!
Sorry for the grammar mistakes, not a native speaker :)
Hey guys and gals
I am writing here since I find that it's not that intuitive to find information across the internet, i.e. the official channels of Uzbek embassies, conusulats, tourism deparments et cetera. I also wrote some e-mails to some of those administrative bodies, but I haven't received any replies yet.
I am a Swiss citizen (Switzerland) and I am thinking of visiting Uzbekistan in July to August 2021 for 30 days, for tourism purposes.
Is the country open for tourists / citizens from Switzerland?
According to the famous Uzbekistan.Travel Website, foreign tourists entering Uzbekistan by airplane need to bring a negative PCR test made within 72 hours before checking in the airplane.
Is this still correct? If yes, does it matter which Swiss PCR testing laboratories will be accepted? I couldn't find Switzerland on the government website that is referred on the site.
Maybe someone of you has recent experience of entering the country as a foreigner?
Thank you in advance and I hope that I don't break any rules here.
I am an American visiting Uzbekistan in about 10 days. I speak pretty good Russian, and would love to meet up with you (and/or your friends?) for some food! I typically travel to explore a countries culinary scene, and would love to dine at some hidden/off-the-beaten-path places.
Will be spending 4-5 weeks throughout the whole country. If anyone has any recommendations in any city - please send them my way! Would love to meet up with one of you.
EN: Hello everyone. I was born in Uzbekistan and moved to the US a while back. I got my US citizenship not to long ago and I want to visit my friends and family back in Uzbekistan this summer.
The problem is, I am of age to be drafted into Uzbek military. While it is not illegal to have two citizenships in Uzbekistan, they will only recognize me as a citizen of Uzbekistan. One way around it that I found online was to get rid of my Uzbek citizenship, but I read that it could take 1-2 years, or even longer.
I have two questions. Is there a way to speed up the process of nullifying my Uzbek citizenship? If not, should I be worried that I will be drafted to Uzbek military if I travel with my US passport without getting rid of my Uzbek citizenship?
Thank you in advance!
RU: Здравствуйте. Я родился в Узбекистане и переехал в штаты на ПМЖ. Недавно, я получил американское гражданство и хочу полететь обратно в Узбекистан этим летом чтобы навестить родных.
Но есть одна проблемка. Я в таком возрасте в котором могут забрать в армию в Узбекистане. Хоть наличие второго гражданства и не является нарушением закона Узбекистана, моё гражданство США признаваться не будет. Один выход из данной ситуации который я нашел онлайн это отказаться от узбекского гражданства, но весь процесс может занять от 1-2 лет, может даже и дольше.
У меня два вопроса. Можно ли как нибудь ускорить процесс отказа от граждансва Узбекистана? Если нет, то стоит ли мне волноваться что меня заберут в армию если я полечу с паспортом США не отказываясь от узбекского гражданства?
Before I was looking at flights to Osh from Bishkek and I got insane results, extremely expensive when I looked online. But when I went to smaller airlines like aviasska or went into a travel agency office the price was much more affordable. Are there smaller airlines i can find in Bishkek that will go to Tashkent? Right now I see online tickets for around 16000 RUB.
