Op-Ed: Turkmenistan is a closed country, but will have to open

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov on April 24 completed his two-day visit to Uzbekistan. It was a reciprocal trip of the Turkmen leader - he was invited to visit Tashkent during his counterpart Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s visit to Ashgabat, the first, by the way, foreign visit of the newly elected president of Uzbekistan. Perhaps the main result of the visit was that modern technologies were used in its coverage: the ceremony at the airport and the joint press conference of the presidents were broadcasted through the Uzbek leader personal page in Facebook.

Op-Ed: Vanity Fair: Atambayev’s addiction to power

Former Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev, clearly cannot forget about his, now past, role of the president. He positions himself as the main politician of the state, gives advice as an "elder brother" of Sooronbai Jeenbekov -- the current president of Kyrgyzstan and still flies aboard the presidential plane. Another thing that also hasn’t changed -- he still drinks as much alcohol as when he was the president.
