How Stable Are Russia's Ties With Central Asia?

Amid Russia's isolation from the Western world, Central Asia remains one of the few places where President Vladimir Putin continues to travel regularly. The leaders of these countries are some of the few with whom the Russian president still seems to find common ground.

In this episode, we look at how Moscow’s relations with each of the countries in this region are developing, how the war in Ukraine has affected the public mood toward Russia, and whether Russian influence in Central Asia is weakening. Joining us is Temur Umarov, a fellow at the Carnegie Russia Eurasia Center in Berlin.

Russia on the Record is a podcast where Moscow Times journalists, independent experts and ordinary Russians reflect, analyze and explain what’s going on in Russia right now. You can listen to us on the following platforms:

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
