Storyboard Text

  • During the Cold War Russia would not move any Russians or minorities to Uzbekistan. It became known as the least Russified country that was under the control of Russia.
  • From the 1950s to the 1980s Uzbekistan's cotton production grew leaps and bound. One of the side effects of it was that 9/10 of the Aral Sea was drained due to irrigation.
  • The chief of the communist party, Sharaf Rashidov, started to promote ethnic Uzbeks in the government. He also falsified cotton production numbers to keep up with the demand of Russia.
  • In 1989 Sharaf is ousted as the leader over controversies involving falsified cotton production numbers. Islam Karimov is appointed as the leader of the communist party.
  • In 1990 Uzbekistan declares economic and political independence and the president of Uzbekistan supports an anti-Gorbachev coup. In 1991 Uzbekistan declares full independence from the Soviet Union.
