As soon as Vova [Putin, Vova is a contraction of Vladimir] had failed to talk Mirziyoev into taking part in his reckless schemes in Afghanistan, Russian siloviki [law enforcement and security agencies] launched crackdown on Uzbeks. They detained 300 Uzbek migrant workers in Tula [a Russian city to the south of Moscow] and demonstrated their power to the world. It was a shame to see riot police armed to their teeth take defenseless workers, including women to the precincts down the streets of Tula. Having witnessed this, their loved ones and relatives as well as ordinary Uzbeks will remember Russian hospitality for good.
