    So the President of Uzbekistan for over two decades, Mr. Islam Karimov died.
    This country was notorious for its reluctance to join any side (Rus, USA etc) and protected its sovereignty as much as it could under Karimov.
    Now that he is gone, there is a void in said country.
    Who's gonna fill it?

    I will opt for the option of nepotism. Karimov's immediate successor should take over. I don't want ISIS or its affiliates taking over. If that happens, I hope a joint Russo-Kazakh-Kyrgyz force occupies it.

    By immediate successor you mean?

    Though not much is known about Karimov's personal stuff, afaik he has two daughters and maybe a son, I don't think they are in a position to lead Uzbekistan

    Yeah, he has two daughters. Stuff gonna happen in Uzbekistan soon. This is a new headache for Russia. The good news is, Uzbekistan does not share a border with PRC.

    PRC has a habit of pushing its forces down other people's throats. If say Uzbekistan had a border with PRC, and PRC cited ISIS takeover and sent a couple of divisions into Uzbekistan, who would be able to deter PRC? No one.

    They have already started making noises about the border. That is one reason why Tajikistan still has Russian military presence.

    Till we are import-dependent, we cannot expand militarily.

    It is a watch facility with a few Mi-17s, handful Mi-35s and barely a couple of hundred troops.

    We cannot exactly attack Pakistan with taht number.
