Since most of them are Jewish, I wouldn't call them ethnic Russians.

If you listen to BBC video ( on Uzbekistan) closely, you'll notice that only Uzbek villagers speak local language, the rest of them ( particularly those in charge) speak Russian. They are clearly Uzbeks though, not ethnic Russians.

With the new president Uzbekistan, things already looking better. New President Mirziyoyev seems to be of the people with action. He was spotted meeting real crowds on the ground, promising more freedoms, particularly economic freedoms. He is also planning to better the situation for tourists, and trying to open currency convertability, and ease up tourist visas, as well removing exit visas (OVIT) for the citizens. He wants to open up new free trade/economic zones to bring in investment the country badly needs. Uzbekistan suffered so much under Karimova, and it will probably take a decade to recover from the failing institutions to function properly again. He also motioned to downsize the amount of police and uzbek kgb, and other government beurocracies. I hope he succeeds. However, Uzbekistan Internal Securities Leader(KGB) Inoyatov seems to be trying very hard to hold on to his powers and trying to prevent the president to movement towards more open and free societies. President Mirziyoyev even appointed a former KGB with a Libertarian pro-western leaning tendencies for special duties. Which mean an internal strruggle to remove the last opressive remains of Karimovs regime, and to move more toward free market economy. Uzbekistan have huge potential as the country have all elements of natural resources, the laborers and as well as educated talents that live there and around the World to come get right back to work to modernize the country. Uzbekistan also have zero debt, meaning the country can start at a big advantage if given a chance. Though problems like being double landlock towards the seas/ocean can be an issue. However, the country is located in the Great Silk road, meaning in the future the Chinese railways can pass through the area to reach Europe and Middle East. I'm as hopeful, with the sparks of enlightenment is around the corner. I hope the new president can completely remove beurocracy, uphold the basic human rights, and establish institutions like the law and order of the court of law etc. But these changes will take time, and he had expressed his willingness to work with experienced countries like Japan, Korea Republic, Taiwain and the European security counsil in the future to speed things up
