The President of Uzbekistan accused the USSR of destroying the color of the Uzbek nation.
"Achieving independence was not easy. Although independence and was gained 31 years ago, our grandfathers tried to do this over 100 years ago. 100 thousand of our compatriots were repressed, 13 thousand were mercilessly shot. Why? Because they were our greatest heroes, the heritage of the nation," Mirziyoyev said.
"The totalitarian regime was not limited only to the destruction of the Jadids (supporters of Jadidism - a socio-political movement for the renewal of Islamic culture and society in the 1880-1920s, in the common people - Basmachi).
Back in the 80s of the last century, thousands of our compatriots were thrown into prison and persecuted under various slanderous pretexts.
Interestingly, despite gaining independence, Uzbekistan continues to be dependent, but already from modern Russia. Every year, three million Uzbeks, and this is 20% of the total adult population of Uzbekistanare sent to Russia to work.
The fact that all hospitals, schools, universities, all public infrastructure - from sewers to main pipelines, and much, much more was built by the same Soviet "totalitarians" from Russia chose to remain modestly silent.
As the saying goes - Russian "barbarians" broke into villages, auls, camps, leaving behind cities, libraries, universities and theaters.
