Last weekend in Dushanbe explosions. One of them came late in the evening of July 25 near the Capital Airport, the second – after five hours at the presidential palace next to the hotel “Tajikistan”.There were no injuries – a tree fell and was damaged standing beside the car. Dushanbe explosions rang out loud after the events in eastern Tajikistan, in Tavildara. There, during a special operation by Tajik authorities against anti-government forces had killed a Tajik former minister and several gunmen, who were Russian citizens. That is happening in Tajikistan, the browser “News Time” said Arkady Dubnov famous Tajik politician and journalist, leader of the socio-political movement “Vatandor” Dodojon Atovulloyev.
– In Dushanbe, explosions are heard again, who is behind them?
– This beginning of the disaster Emomali Rakhmonov regime. This is a warning that if he does not resign voluntarily, it will be forced to do so by force. The opposition lost the hope to change it by democratic means, in response to the violence of the regime rahmonovskogo their own people to him, too, can be applied violence.Unfortunately, the peace talks with Rahmon no one believes – every time they finish a trap for his opponents. Another evidence that the recent murder by government forces in Tavildara ex-Minister of Emergency Situations, the former commander of the armed forces of the opposition Mirzo Ziyoyev, acts as an intermediary between the authorities and the opposition. – According to one of the official versions, the explosions – the handiwork of militants’ Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan “( IMU) … – This is an absolute lie. The main enemy of the IMU are the Uzbek authorities. And even if we assume that IMU fighters still remain in Tajikistan, all of them have long been working on the Tajik security services. These militants, as well as many other issues of relations between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, in charge of the First Deputy Minister of National Security Abdullo Nazarov, former field commander of the Tajik opposition. – Then who gave those explosions? – I am more than confident that they were themselves Tajiks – – those who are dissatisfied with the current situation in the country. And they give to know that they are willing to take decisive action. – You think it was the rebels stationed in Tavildara? – if not they themselves, those who sympathized with them. They tend to confusion in the power structures, to distract the government forces of Tavildara. I think that in the near future, such “warning” will be made in other parts of the country. – It is said that the explosions were timed to a forthcoming visit to Dushanbe, the presidents of Russia, Afghanistan and Pakistan – to show them the weakness of the current Tajik regime. .. – This is not true. The Tajiks have long come to believe that their problems do not care about anyone, and only they can change the power in the country and change their lives. In Tajikistan, a new resistance. And I will not hide the fact that we maintain relationships with many of those who are now in Tavildara. I know exactly what they are not against Russia or America, or Uzbekistan or any other country. They only have one enemy – it’s Rahmon and his regime. – It’s a coincidence that as a result of Sunday’s blasts were no injuries? – Maybe it blasphemous to say so, but it talks about humanity explosives. Can you imagine what would happen if the explosions were heard in public places during the day … – Who can guarantee that this “humanism” will remain in force? – None. However, I can say that we created a couple of years ago, the movement “Vatandor” (“The Patriot”) is today as a dam holding back an avalanche of more military pressure on the regime rahmonovsky. – At one time it was considered a pillar of Kulyab clan, because he was born Emomali Rahmon Kulyab region of … – This is not so long ago. Rather, it was possible to talk about Dangara clan (Dangara Kulyab region – home town of Rahmon. – Ed. ), but it is not. Support mode – Rahmon’s family, literally. The Tajik economy is today – the president is a family business, so there is no no thieves, no racket, their function is completely monopolized by his family. Tajikistan is nearly divided between the offspring of Rahmon. They had nine – two sons and seven daughters. As soon as one of the daughters is getting married (for four of these), the father of her husband, if you do not receive the ministerial, the other major public office or a good business. And the husbands themselves – responsible government officials and diplomats, one representing the country at the UN, the other – the IMF, the third – the deputy minister … Previously best-known businessman in the country was the brother of the president’s wife Sadulloev Hassan, which controls more than two hundred enterprises of the republic, including Central Asia’s largest aluminum smelter. Influential businesswoman is the eldest daughter Tahmina, which owns the bank, distillery, beauty. Not long ago, she married another daughter, she also gets the business. Now, he married the eldest son, 24-year-old Rustam, he studied at many universities, not finishing any of them – Germany, Tajikistan, Russia at Moscow State University. But his father called him recently from Moscow, Rustam too often leave a lot of money in a casino, “Corston.” At home, he immediately got a high position in the Foreign Ministry, and now many believe that Rahmon always takes it with him to travel abroad. – Prepares his successor? – There is a version. But while Rustam became interested in the other – in an instant, he became a famous Tajik football player, captain and top scorer of the Premier League team “Istiqlol.” When he goes on the field, his opponents are afraid to take the ball. A couple of weeks ago, Rustam married. Ministers and businessmen gave him a car, he loves to collect them.Everyone was wondering how the wedding will take place, because Rahmon has recently issued a decree banning lavish celebrations. On television, even announced that his son, “his majesty” marries … – President of the so-jokingly referred to as? – No, no, “dzhanobi oli”, so in Tajik is almost officially as it sounds, and on television too … And he is sometimes at a government meeting about himself in third person says, ministers scolded: “You told me that all will do, Your Majesty, and that …” For it is in a different turn: “Yes, my king “-” Shoham “in Tajik. – Presidential Decree complied with at the wedding? – Of course, even on television showed a report as to the relatives of “KamAZ” bringing up the gifts with products – butter, rice for the residents. It was emphasized that all of the personal funds of the president’s family. In this case the current poverty of Tajiks – a direct result of a consistent policy of the authorities. Rahmon said that Tajikistan should not be rich, otherwise then they start to grow, and political ambitions. He is afraid of free and independent people. In Emomali Sharipovich two mania, one – the persecution, the other – of greatness. – Is it true that once you have held a long conversation in private? – Yes, in 1999, he invited me to come back to Dushanbe, and we talked to his office at the presidential palace about four hours. I remember the awkward details of the conversation. I can only say that it was very uncomfortable to listen to the president, who was trying to portray himself as a well-read man. Rahmon, is constantly recalled Tajik poetry classics and philosophers, but is constantly confused their names. He reproached me that I wrote, though he lives in the palace, saying that the house had no heating and he wrapped himself in a coat out there … – But what if the president so you have a newspaper, where you can find criticism address of the authority? – This is not the merit of Rahmon, is the merit of journalists. I know that many of them often cause a state committee of national security, prosecutor’s office and threatened them, putting pressure on their relatives.Tajikistan – a unique country. On the one hand, executions, imprisonment and cruel persecution of dissent and hunt for enemies of the regime, amounting to psychosis.On the other hand, you can barely hear the phrase “it’s not a phone conversation.” I admire the courage of politicians such as Rahmatullo Zoirov, Kabiri, Shodi Shabdolov, Hoji Akbar Turajonzoda, Yusuf Ahmed, Shokirjon Khakimov Amniyat Abdunazarov, Mirhusayn Nazriev, Kuwwat Sulton, and many others who, despite the pressure of the authorities, have the courage to speak openly the country’s problems. – All of them are members of the “Vatandor?” – The authorities in Dushanbe make everyone more or less meaningful policies to make a statement that he is not a member of the “Vatandor.” – You can call these people? – Please – Turajonzoda One of the commanders of the National Guard Sukhrob Kasymov, the late Mirzo Ziyoyev … The merit of “Vatandor” that in Tavildara near the former opposition fighters today are members of the former “Popular Front of Tajikistan,” 17 years ago led to the power of the current president. – But the main thing, then supported him in Moscow and Tashkent. What is the future today at the Russian-Tajik relations? – Do Rahmon Psychology gypsy. Gave him the money – so good, did not give – bad. Russia, he always used, primarily as a cash cow. In this case there was a moment in 1993 when, trying to keep their power, Rakhmonov was chairman of the Supreme Council of Tajikistan, Russia was ready to give everything. He then appealed to Yeltsin proposed the occurrence of Tajikistan in Russia. In another appeal to President Karimov, he offered to give Uzbekistan Leninabad region. I mention this because today Rahmon calls himself the savior of the Aryan Nation last, almost the last Aryan. – There is evidence of these appeals? – This is a known fact, the Tajik press then wrote about it. Rahmon was convinced that the Soviet Union to resume its existence, and it becomes something of a first secretary of the Central Committee of the Republic.
