Uzbekistan Independence day is celebrated on September 1 each year. The day commemorates the declaration of independence of Uzbekistan.

The anniversary of Uzbekistan’s Independence Day is on September 1, a celebration of their independence from the Soviet Union.

History of Independence Day in Uzbekistan

The Russian conquest began in the 1860s and lasted until 1990. Russia had conquered Tashkent and absorbed vast swaths of Central Asia by the 1870s. The Bolsheviks started to gradually conquer Turkestan, Bukhara, and Khiva by the start of 1917, lasting until 1920. 1918 to 1922 saw the secularization campaign led by the communist rulers. A reorganization of Soviet states resulted in the creation of Uzbekistan and its neighboring countries by 1924. Conflicts with minority ethnic groups became common during this period.

The country shares its borders with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Turkmenistan. It is a secular state with a presidential constitutional government and a population of about 35.3 million.

Anniversary of Uzbek Independence

Uzbekistan celebrated its Independence Day on September 1 this year. This anniversary marks the day when the Uzbek people declared their independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Since then, Uzbekistan has made great progress in terms of its economy and political stability. The country has also seen positive growth in its relations with its neighbours, including Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Independence Day celebration was attended by President Islam Karimov and other high-level government officials as well as members of the Uzbek diaspora.

After independence, the country faced threats from Islamic terrorists and the civil unrest of 2004. The political and ecological crisis still haunts the country, yet despite all odds, they’ve survived, showing the spirit of Central Asia.
