It is in this vein that was carried out cooperation (although the term "collaboration" here comes a stretch) of Uzbekistan with CSTO partners. Uzbekistan has a "special opinion" though what was shown on the occasion comfortable and obviously has imposed partners on the question of what, in fact, Tashkent, led by Islam Karimov wants? To answer the question directly official Tashkent is certainly not going to, but, in fact, all the other CSTO member-states themselves know the answer. And the answer is, in all probability, was to follow: the membership in the Organization of the Collective Security Contract Uzbekistan weird way recalled only when roasted rooster pecked the head of the country and the main political elite of the country, I'm sorry to myagenkie place. Do not bite cock — are extensive discussions about the position of some members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization in Uzbekistan is unacceptable, this position turns out to be painful pounding on the geopolitical interests of Tashkent. But Cockerel deigned to target the same myagenkie places like Uzbekistan manifested sudden zeal for the fraternity and unity of the peoples in the former Soviet space.
A striking example of such policies in respect of Uzbekistan CSTO can serve as actions in Andijan in 2005. Meetings of the Uzbek people against the arrests of local entrepreneurs resulted in a bloody massacre, during which the killing, according to various estimates, from 187 to 230 people, hundreds of people were injured. Special Forces troops encountered a group of well-armed insurgents who often were covered by civilians. Specifically, in the middle of ordinary residents of Andijan, according to the local Society for the Protection of Human Rights and it was more than just victims.
Until now, no clear assessment of the events of 7-year-old, but most political analysts agree on the idea that a very ruthless and bloody action could be triggered by Islamists to seize power in Uzbekistan at first at the regional, and later at the national level. Karimov was aware that after the Rose Revolution in Georgia, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and after the riots following a change of government in Kyrgyzstan, a revolutionary wheel can ride on it and personally. Of course, the president of Uzbekistan did not want to produce their own hands the reins of government, and therefore was willing to do any act, just to mess Andijan not spread to other parts of the country, including in Tashkent.
After the dissolution of the discontented in Andijan, as a result of which numerous victims were reported, the head of Uzbekistan was counting on international support, and harbored hopes that the West will be glad to like it, Islam Karimov Karimov cracked down with revolutionary pretensions. But the West, which he himself had often walked in the revolutionary sponsors on the terrain of the former Russian Union then decided to firmly scold the president of Uzbekistan, and even initiated the adoption of a resolution in the UN Security Council condemning the official Tashkent for actions on the ground Andijan. Karimov tried to say that it is the internal affairs of Uzbekistan, but it no one was listening. In the end, the resolution was adopted by a majority vote. Voted against the resolution Our homeland, Belarus, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan (the CSTO) and other countries.
Recall that at the beginning of the Andijan events Uzbekistan due to its own "dissenting opinion" was temporarily suspended in the format of membership in the Organization of the Collective Security Contract. But after the West hurt snapped Uzbekistan and Karimov himself emperor's nose, he decided to re-join the ranks of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and its own differences with the other members as if forgotten. And it really: how not here to join if you hanging over the revolutionary threat that in a number of former Soviet republics dropped their favorites in virtually no time. Suffered Leonid Kuchma, Eduard Shevardnadze, Askar Akayev. This list is Islam Karimov clearly was not going to fill up their naming. And if you are not going to fill up, it was necessary to find a decent cover of the danger of being on the site of the above politicians. And this is a cover of Uzbekistan found quickly — CSTO.
In general, the friendship between Uzbekistan and other countries of the CSTO member states in 2006, had conceived again.
But after the wave of revolutionary sentiment in the former Soviet Union began to wane, and after talking to the United States to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan again became declare its own unique vision of the role in the projects of the CSTO. Once again, with or without cause Tashkent began to express their "opinion". And it is expressed in the refusal to participate in joint exercises, the braking military engineering projects, the failure to ratify the agreement. In general, the stress apparently took place in Andijan in Islam Abduganievich, and instead it came to the belief that you can bargain with the CSTO. Well, after Washington announced a probable Tashkent donating huge amounts of weapons and military equipment in the derivation of its own troops from Afghan territory, the emperor Karimov decided it was time to seize the moment again.
In the summer of this year, Uzbekistan announced the temporary suspension of the regular membership in the Collective Security Treaty Organization, which was motivated by the discrepancies in the positions of the members of the organization.
In general, it is necessary to recognize the temporary suspension of membership — this is a very exciting position that you're, like, and you remain a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and have the right to impose its veto on some decisions, but all of this with you bribes smooth. A bit that — none of my business, I'm sorry …
But at the last meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization in the old days in Moscow, the Partner States (Armenia, our homeland, Belarus, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan) have decided to not only meet the demands of official Tashkent is the temporary suspension of membership in the Organization, and the very end (stop) its very role. In other words, the demarche of Uzbekistan has led to the fact that Uzbekistan has remained outside the Collective Security Treaty Organization, and has already if, God forbid, there will be a new "Andijan", the emperor Karimov will not be so easy to pick up and say, "Friends, I rushed back to our friendly company. Take me! "Now to return to the Collective Security Treaty Organization, unless, of course, Karimov in general thinks about it now, will have to step over their ambitions and ratify all the agreements that at one time the official Tashkent simply ignored.
Uzbek edition in most positive about their own output in Uzb
ekistan (and almost his output) beyond the CSTO. According to the views of a number of journalists and analysts Uzbekistan, rules the use of force by security forces against the interests of the CSTO countries.
In this regard, the question arises: why, if the interests of the Uzbek side did not meet the interests of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the authorities of this country to this day did not differ by political will and did not take the decision to withdraw from the Organization. Apparently, the CSTO sovereign Karimov held all the same pro in store: as the saying goes, let it be — just in case. And that was less than the claims in Tashkent, the decision on temporary suspension of membership. But with regard to Uzbekistan, it was decided to take a much more uncompromising decision.
It should be noted that recently the capital of the CSTO summit in Tashkent flew minister of foreign affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov. He met with his Uzbek as an employee, as well as with President Karimov. Of course, Lavrov was entrusted to explain what to expect in the case of Uzbekistan to continue sending its own unusual policy CSTO. Apparently, the official authorities Uzbekistan waiting for the revision of their own decisions in the summer. But now, Tashkent, which feels one hundred percent safe from external and internal threats, apparently was not impressed with the explanation Lavrov. This is the last time substantiate that Tashkent Collective Security Treaty Organization is ready to use as a tool not far multifaceted cooperation as a means to permanently solve their own at one point encountered problems. And while there is no such problems — Tashkent in military cooperation with Russia, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, just not interested.
But the world is changing. And the calm that would be like the former Soviet Union is, at this moment, at any moment can be replaced by an entirely different political weather …
