Better Reap the Fruits of Rogun HPP Together

“Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s becoming President of Uzbekistan gave rise to certain hopes and even some euphoria for addressing the problems and challenges that have accumulated in the region. Uzbekistan has formally declared a new geopolitical doctrine of openness, cooperation, liberalization of domestic politics, and active efforts to establish friendly relations with its immediate neighbors. All this is admirably welcomed by both the West and the East, but there are a few nuances...” And among them, the Russian analyst Vitaly Khlyupin refers to the Rogun Hydropower Plant, which, “will always hang over the Uzbek valleys like the Damocles’ sword”. Is it so? We have talked about this with Anvarmzo Khusainov, an entrepreneur, academician of the International Academy of Ecology, Human and Environmental Sciences, International Academy of Ecology, Human Security and Nature.

-          What do you think of this?

- The Amu Darya has flown for millennia, carrying with it untold riches, blessed silt from the mountains to our desert lands. Its healing and creative properties compared with fertile moisture of the river Nile to the Egyptian plains, until the 1960-70s when there came a catastrophic blunder of designing a new bed of the Amu Darya River, leading to an annual loss of billions of cubic meters of water, and desertification and salinization of hundreds of thousands of hectares of land and ultimately the drying out of the Aral Sea.

If you do not mind, I would like to plunge into history a bit. In my opinion, the adoption of such an obvious, murderous decision for the region’s ecology, the main impetus was the sharp intervention of world politics in the fate of a peacefully sleeping Central Asia for many centuries. In the early 1960s, unfortunately for our peoples, it was the time of the rapid intensification of the Cold War, the arms race between the capitalist West and the communist East. Naturally, the first priority in the economy and politics was to ensure the needs of the military-industrial complex. One of the first places in the list of needs in the raw materials of the defense industry were huge volumes of gunpowder made of cotton. Gunpowder is known as the main crude for the production of all types of explosives, artillery shells and rocket fuel. And Moscow insistently demanded from the republics that they “give a lot of cotton, at any cost”. As it was said at this time in the famous song, “the party said it is necessary, the Komsomol answered yes!” Or, “Moscow said - you need a lot of cotton at any cost, the republics said yes”. Then was worked out an ambitious program for the development of virgin lands for the cultivation of cotton in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, which, of course, required a lot of water... Where can I get it? In Moscow they decided: from the Amu Darya. And it was decided to change the riverbed of the Amu Darya and the construction of the grandiose Karakum Canal, which runs more than 800 kilometers along the sand, contrary to the established laws of nature. The result is known. Annual huge losses of water in the sands of the Kyzylkum and Karakum steppes and deserts, unlimited expansion of cotton fields became the main reason for the drying out of the Aral Sea.

Today, thanks to the establishment of friendly relations between the leaders of the states of the region, a favorable environment has formed for the correction of the above-mentioned historical errors and return to the natural course of the Amu Darya, for the great river to carry her grace in the form of precious moisture and mud on our lands.

... In the last century, in the 1965-70s, Moscow designers decided to intervene in the laws of nature and with arbitrary decision created a new canal of the Amu Darya, which by the way, historically flowed from Tajikistan to Uzbekistan. And under the new project, it flowed into the Turkmen steppe, where the water from above descended into the desert, and a narrow strip of earth paved a stream. Then it was these scientists that laid us a time bomb. After all, they could not but know that the water thrown into the desert would wander through the sand and evaporate under the scorching sun. After all, it was about the loss of billions of cubic meters of water per year. And, in addition, huge funds were spent to create seven powerful pumping stations on the Karshi cascade to raise the water of the great river to a height of 131 meters. And meanwhile, on the map the land division between Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan was allocated a strip of land 300 meters wide, 22 km in length. That is, by this willful and unscientific approach, which does not take into account historical facts, they drove a wedge into historical friendship between the neighboring nations. This cross-border problem remains unresolved till today. Six pumping stations out of seven in the Karshi cascade of pumping stations are located on the territory of Turkmenistan, although the management of this complicated hydrotechnical structure is carried out by Uzbek specialists and workers.

- Is it possible to solve this problem?

- In our concept of change, the return to the historical natural channel of the Amu Darya River provides the answer to this complex interstate political-economic, transboundary water problem. The point is that once the concept is realized, the Amu Darya again becomes gravity and there is no need to raise a huge volume of water in the pumping stations themselves. And this is a very urgent task, which prevents a possible technogenic catastrophe at the Karshi cascade of pumping stations located on the Uzbek-Turkmen disputable border. For Karshi pumping station is technically obsolete, all reasonable terms of its operation were completed long ago. If these pumps suddenly fail, a terrible technogenic and ecological disaster can occur for the water supply of the whole region.

Professor of the Hydraulic Information Department of the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Agricultural Mechanization of Agriculture, Dilshod Bazarov, defended his doctoral thesis in hydraulics at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics at the Moscow State University. In his younger years, as a graduate student and doctoral student at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, participating in scientific expeditions, he walked all around the Amu Darya from Afghanistan to the Aral Sea. Today, Academician Bazarov said that in those years he was surprised: what was the point in launching a new channel of a gravity river, besides the projected efficiency of the Amu-Bukhara machine canal and the Karshi Canal and the water-lifting was very low? The 57% declared at that time actually was just over 30%, and the efficiency of the Karakum Canal named after Lenin, which runs 800 km along the sands of the Karakums, surprise-surprise, is only 24%. As you can see, three quarters of the priceless water of a multi-billion artificial river in the desert goes to the sand. And it is understandable why the entire academic world of ecologists laughs at the waste in the use of water resources in the region. We constantly talk about the lack of water in Central Asia, but it turns out that we have plenty of it, only this water flows down, due to our inactivity, to where it should not.

I repeatedly appealed to Professor Bazarov with proposals on the implementation of water saving projects in various funds, ministries and departments, but we were not heard. These were the times when problems turned away from problems, and the initiative was punishable. Thanks God, today there has come another time, the leadership of Uzbekistan headed by the well-known scientist and economist in the field of water management, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, does not leave problems where they are, but seeks solution to problems and challenges. Therefore, we decided to act in accordance with the spirit of the times, using the openness of the government, information capabilities of society. We sent our concept on the Amu Darya to the leadership of the country. In addition, they posted a number of publications in electronic and print media. One of them is the long article “The Unfulfilled Dream of Ahmad Donish” in the Adabiyot newspaper in Uzbek and Russian.

Ahmad Donish was a great poet, thinker, Ambassador of the Bukhara emirate to the Russian Empire, was friends with many progressive figures of science, literature of Russia. In the late 19th century, Ahmad Donish contributed to the construction of the first railway from Russia to Bukhara. At the same time, this legendary creative personality dreamed of launching the Amu Darya in a new channel, so that a large river flowed by gravity near Bukhara. Unfortunately, Ahmad Donish was unable to realize his dream. The revolution of 1905 in Russia destroyed all plans. And if now we are implementing the project of a new Amu Darya riverbed, we will save a huge amount of precious water leaving for the sands and evaporating under the hot desert sun, and, of course, save energy costs for raising the Amu Darya water at two points: in Karshi at 131 meters and in Bukhara at 112 meters.

- What are the prospects for solving transboundary water problems?

- Uzbekistan has a unique geographical location for the development of mutually beneficial economic and environmental projects with Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. This is facilitated by the wise foreign policy course being pursued today by the President of Uzbekistan, allowing to build up truly mutually advantageous friendly, trust-based relations of cooperation with neighbors for the long-term perspective. As Shavkat Mirziyoyev says, it’s time to turn to problems and boldly solve them for the good of the people. Taking advantage of this favorable atmosphere in relations with neighboring countries, first of all, we must begin to address the accumulated transboundary water problems and challenges. One of the most pressing issues is the construction and operation of the Rogun HPP. The objective reality is that Tajikistan cannot single-handedly launch this strategically important facility unless Uzbekistan becomes an effective partner of its neighbor for joint activities and further exploitation.

- Yes, we all remember the categorical statement of the former first deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Rustam Azimov at the Almaty meeting in April 2014 to discuss the Rogun project. He then said that there can be no talk of any agreement on our part, since the project, which was developed during the years of Soviet gigantomania, ignores the interests of the populations and countries in the middle and lower reaches of the Amu Darya. And what has changed since that? Why do you think the project can be launched today?

- Good question. This strategically important project for the region can be successfully launched only with the actual cooperation between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Uzbekistan should act as an interested partner in the construction and operation of the Rogun Hydropower Plant for many reasons and, mainly, for reasons of building safety and operation. For this it has a moral right as a country that is threatened by any flaw in guaranteeing the safety of the consequences of the operation of the giant reservoir and hydroelectric power station. The other side of the coin lies in the fact that the greatest production of electricity falls on the autumn-winter period of the year, and at that time the greatest discharge of water from the reservoir occurs, and a non-vegetation period, it turns out, water in such quantities is not in demand during this period, and in the lower reaches of the Amu Darya there is no place to store additional water in 2-2.5 billion cubic meters.

The Great Amu Darya River, with a length of almost 1,100 km, runs through Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. In recent years it has practically turned into a large canal, its fertile banks have been developed by the population living near the river banks, houses are built there, and agricultural products are grown. And if the Rogun hydroelectric station is launched, then this ice water in the autumn-winter period will run along the old channel of the Amu Darya and blow everything on its path.

Professor Dilshod Bazarov and I proposed a solution to this difficult issue by developing the concept of a project for the transfer of the Amu Darya water to a new gravity flow from the Rogun hydropower station in Tajikistan via the Surkhandarya, Kashkadarya, Bukhara and Navoi regions of Uzbekistan and further to Turkmenistan.

- And what to do with this water in winter months?

- The waste water of the Rogun HPP can be taken and stored by Uzbekistan in a specially constructed new reservoir with a capacity of up to 5 billion cubic meters of water, which we propose to build at a convenient location in the Surkhandarya region. In the winter months, ice water from the Rogun HPP will accumulate there, heat up, and during the vegetation period it can be taken up by the Bukhara and Karshi canals along the upper course. Thus, in the near future we will be able to save up to 2-2.5 billion cubic meters of water annually, and in the future - up to 5 billion cubic meters a year. Thanks to this, in the long term Uzbekistan can achieve self-sufficiency in meeting its water resources needs.

I would also like to say that the effective struggle against the consequences of the Aral ecological catastrophe, ensuring the safety of the activities of such grandiose hydroelectric facilities as the Rogun HPP, can still be decided not by government decisions, but by the efforts of science at large. It was necessary long ago to create an institution in the country to combat the consequences of environmental disasters, desertification and ensuring the safety of hydropower facilities. For the years of independence we would have grown a large group of scientists really connected and interacting with well-known world centers of excellence, experts who are successful in this field. Unfortunately, we were late with this decision.

Still, the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan does not have a sector dealing with water problems, nor there is a sector of environmental and technological safety. And the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev was right when he said at a recent meeting with scientists that the past quarter of a century had passed ineptly for national science, the country, unfortunately, allowed a huge drain of minds and ambitions. If life before us poses problems, challenges, we must meet them, solve them, and not turn away or wait until they grow into trouble, anthropogenic catastrophe. In particular, it is necessary to conduct, as President Mirziyoyev says, active creative work on the return of Uzbek scientists and specialists working abroad. As they say, there is time to scatter stones, there is time to collect stones. Uzbekistan must muster its minds in order to solve the problems of the country with their help in the best way.

- Recently, a Russian analyst, speaking of Rogun, said: “It will be built by all the same Tajik workers, and exploited by Tajik engineers. Before the first big earthquake. To seriously hope that it will never happen is the upper hand of frivolity... Tashkent-66 is not a verdict, but a stern reminder... Rogun is an objective sword of Damocles that will hang over the Uzbek valleys.” What do you think about that?

- Today, science has gone far ahead and allows for building the most unthinkable facilities in areas with an active seismological regime. But with regard to Rogun, I repeat once again that Uzbekistan should be deeply involved in the process of its design, engineering support for construction, and attract its specialists. We must not forget that thanks to the scientific discoveries and works of academicians Muhammad Urazbayev, Vasily Kabulov and others, Uzbekistan is recognized in the world as one of the centers of world science in seismology.

Here, for example, is the scientist prominent in the world in the field of mechanics, earthquake resistance of structures, Honored Scientist of Uzbekistan Tursunboi Rashidov. He created a seismodynamic theory of complex systems of underground structures, based on extensive factual material for studying the effects of earthquakes and experimental research. He developed the theory of seismic resistance of buildings and structures, created methods for calculating underground structures, life support systems, subway and station tunnels of the underground. Under his leadership, a methodology for assessing seismic risk and damage in settlements in strong earthquakes based on GIS technologies was developed and implemented in major cities of the republic, such as Tashkent, Samarkand, Namangan and Khiva.

Developed under the leadership of Tursunboi Rashidov, recommendations, regulatory documents and tools for seismic resistant construction were used in the construction of the Tashkent Metro, buildings with seismic insulating supports and underground communications and are used in the construction of structures in seismic regions. Although in 1966, a total of 38 Moscow institutes issued a unanimous verdict that in such a seismically active zone as Tashkent, it is impossible to build a metro, Uzbek scientists headed by Rashidov proved the opposite. As you can see, for more than half a century the Tashkent Metro has worked perfectly, having survived many earthquakes. In addition, other countries, including Azerbaijan and India, used Tursunboi Rashidov’s model for the construction of underground metro. Today he is a member of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan, the editor-in-chief of the journal Problems of Mechanics. He, like his friend and colleague, academician on seismology Sobit Nematullayev from Tajikistan, believes that it is possible to build and safely operate the Rogun complex if the quality of design, construction works and operating conditions are observed for long-term prospects.

Nation to Pay Tribute to Ancestors’ Heroism

No one will ever forget that World War II led to the death of millions of people around the world, brought about extraordinary loss, damage and grief; it was the most terrible, the bloodiest war in the history of mankind. Uzbekistan will always remember that out of the 1.5 million people from the republic who fought in that merciless war, over half a million people were killed.

During the hostilities, the Uzbek people received about a million families and children evacuated to the republic from the front-line territories, shared the last piece of bread with them, surrounded them with warmth and care, and this clearly showed nobility, compassion and empathy, high spirituality of our people, notes the resolution of the President of Uzbekistan, dedicated to the preparation and holding of the Day of Remembrance and Honor.

To arrange for extensive nationwide celebration of May 9 – the Day of Remembrance and Honor, reverence of veterans who participated in the fight against Nazism in World War II, and perpetuating the memory of servicemen and women and law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, the resolution approved a program for preparations and organization of events dedicated to the holiday.

It emphasizes that ensuring a wide celebration of the Day of Remembrance and Honor is the primary task of public and social organizations, a matter of conscience and the duty of all citizens of Uzbekistan.

The document envisages to assign representatives of ministries, other government agencies, organizations and military units to each participant of the war and labor front, and also the families of servicemen and women and law enforcement officers who died performing their duties in the years of independence. The attached officials are to organize visits to these categories of persons to honor them and congratulate on the holiday; repair their housing and improve living conditions of single and low-income veterans of the Second World War.

What is of great interest is that it is planned to organize a trip for each participant of the war with one escort, if they wish, to the countries where they fought, as well as a journey for each war participant with one escort, at their request, to the sanatorium Uzbekistan in the cities of Yalta and Kislovodsk or in sanatoria in our country, free of charge, with the provision of air and railway tickets; arrange installations that recreate the corresponding atmosphere of the events and landmark battles of World War II, with music, songs of those years, festively laid tables.

Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Defense is ordered to organize a festive firework in Tashkent on May 9 as a tribute to the Day of Remembrance and Honor.

The resolution of the head of state established a one-time monetary compensation to veterans of World War II in the amount of 5 million soums (currency rates of CB RU from 23.04.2018, 1$= 8068.17 soums) in connection with the national holiday, the celebration of the 73rd anniversary of Victory over Nazism, as well as for the purpose of financial support for participants and those disabled in the Second World War, who devoted their lives to the cause of freedom of the Motherland.

A special web portal “My Opinion” is launched

The Institute of Problems of Legislation and Parliamentary Studies under the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan held a press conference devoted to presentation of the web portal “Mening fikrim” (“My opinion”).

In developing the concept of the web portal “My opinion”, numerous studies were conducted on its operation in a convenient and simple mode. At the same time, the experience of more than 10 leading countries of the world was studied.

It was emphasized that the concept of the web portal “My opinion” was discussed among the general public on February 15 this year, which was attended not only by the Oliy Majlis deputies, but also deputies of local Kengashes of people’s deputies who has the authority to consider electronic collective appeals on a district scale, that was an important factor in further improving this web portal.

On April 13 of this year, the project of the web portal “My opinion” passed the international expertise of German specialists.

The web portal “My opinion” has created many opportunities for expanding the participation of citizens of the country in management of public and state affairs, ensuring openness of activities of representative bodies of the state power, vitality and effectiveness of the adopted laws. Extensive use of capabilities of this web portal will help to ensure further adaptation of laws to social conditions and their qualitative improvement.

The portal will function in Uzbek and Russian languages. On the main page there are sections “All appeals”, “How does it work?”, “News”, “About the portal”, “Frequently asked questions”. Only citizens of the Republic of Uzbekistan can leave a message on the web portal. For this, a series of passports must be entered through the Unified Identity System of the portal. Then the user will be given a personal account.

Media representatives will be regularly informed by the Institute of Problems of Legislation and Parliamentary Studies under the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan on activities of the portal and the status of appeals.

Pending Industrial Tourism Boom

 “In Uzbekistan, it is time to develop industrial tourism. These areas will be quite interesting not only for students, but also for adults. We have something to show,” said Aziz Abduhakimov, chairman of the State Committee for Tourism Development.

“In Western Europe, a boom in industrial tourism began about a quarter of a century ago, when they realized that not every modern tourist can be satisfied with a standard set of museums, temples, a city tour and a large shopping center. Even a simple excursion to the factory, where you can see with your own eyes how your favorite chocolate bars are made, or even participate in production, will open the familiar city from a new perspective.

Over the past 25 years, a lot of new modern enterprises have been created in Uzbekistan, and the flagships of the domestic industry, such as Almalyk and Navoi mining and smelting plants, the Bekabad metallurgical plant, the Uzbekiston Temir Yollari and Uzbekiston Havo Yullari enterprises, also developed, among a lot of others. Very interesting from the point of view of tourism development are special economic and small industrial zones, which in recent years in the country were created in several dozens. Where work on setting up enterprises began several years ago, there is already something to see. These zones are unique in that they allow you to see the production of various products for one tour. Take, for example, the Navoi Free Economic Zone. They produce components for cars, cell phones, various communication devices, light bulbs, pipes, personal hygiene products, are engaged in the processing of agricultural products, and all with the help of modern technologies.

At the same time, it must be acknowledged that to date many enterprises are not ready to receive tourists. In the near future we need to work with them.

An example is the car factory in Asaka, where work is being done to prepare for the reception of tourists. There is a comfortable hall where the guests are shown documentary films on the development of the enterprise, there is a factory museum. The stay program is complemented by a visit to the production halls. Visitors are shown how the blanks turn into modern cars, which we use in everyday life.

An important direction for the development of industrial tourism in Uzbekistan will be the inclusion of such enterprises in existing tourist routes. Their visit can significantly enrich the existing tours. It is time for us to develop combined tours, which will combine ecotourism and familiarize with architectural monuments and industrial enterprises. In the proposals of tour operators a worthy place should be taken by tours, in which a combination of visits to several enterprises of one and the same industry is combined.

We will do everything in our power to make the current year 2018 in Uzbekistan the starting point for the active development of industrial tourism. And very soon we will have offers not only for compatriots, but also foreign guests.
