US Ambassador to Uzbekistan Daniel N. Rosenblum felt empowered to indicate to the country where he represents Washington’s interests. From July 2014 to July 2018, Rosenblum served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the State Department’s Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs. His responsibilities included managing US policy and diplomatic relations with the five states of Central Asia. Now he is going to manage more thoroughly – he was moved to Kazakhstan, where Rosenblum is now more needed.
And recently, Rosenblum said that Tashkent is going to protect its business from the sanctions imposed against Russia. The American ambassador assures that Tashkent will not circumvent the sanctions.

Uzbekistan traded quite profitably with Russia, and there is no need to talk about the benefits of Uzbek guest workers. On the recommendation of Rosenblum, the US Treasury Department included Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan in the list of countries through which goods restricted by sanctions can be delivered to Russia and Belarus. The Uzbeks were given a black mark.
Rosenblum is consistent. In the summer, speaking to graduates of the EPMM (English for Media Professionals) program, he reproached the Uzbek media for writing little and without emotion about “Russian aggression against Ukraine” and about the “outrages” committed there by the Russian army.
Rosenblum throws seeds into the soil he has manured. Not without reason, in August, blogger Shakhnoza Soatova, a former chief consultant for the Department of Legal Propaganda and Education of the Ministry of Justice, and now an adviser to the Minister of Justice of Uzbekistan, began to resent signs in Russian, calling them “a symbol that Uzbekistan cannot get rid of its colonial past.”
“How long will our cities, even remote villages, be filled with outdoor advertising signs that expose our spiritual dependence on other languages?” – the Uzbek Rosenblum was indignant. She recalled that since September 9, a new law on advertising has been in force in Uzbekistan, and she is pleased with the new version of the law.

“Language is a reflection of the character, determination and honor of a nation. Our mirror is fogged up, it needs to be cleaned!” the state official repeats, delighting Rosenblum. On the other hand, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev improved the mood of the American, saying on August 31, on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Repressions on the Shahidlar Hotirasi Alley (Memory of the Martyrs), that the USSR had destroyed the flower of the Uzbek nation.

“100 thousand of our compatriots were repressed, and 13 thousand were mercilessly shot. Why? Because they were our greatest heroes, the treasure of the nation. They knew 2-3 languages. The regime had an understanding that they were able to liberate our Motherland, bring it to prosperity … and the “cotton” business was organized under false accusations in order to suppress the leaders of the republic,” – said Shavkat Miromonovich, who received a higher education in the USSR he cursed, became a mechanical engineer, candidate of sciences, although, according to his official biography, he came from poor Jizzakh dekhans. We are not talking about the rehabilitation of the Basmachi that began in Uzbekistan, although Merziyoev remembered them.
Rosenblum is an experienced person, he knows how to teach wards to spit in the well of the past. Leaving the fruits of his work to Tashkent, he was transferred by the US State Department to Kazakhstan, where it is now a hotter area.
In Kazakhstan, the soil for the Rosenblum region is also manure. And Rosenblum himself, who led the office of the Institute of Free Trade Unions in Alma-Ata (IGF).
