The Taliban have interdicted approximately 120 personnel who participated in several groups conducting robberies in Kabul. Wearing clothing that allowed them to impersonate Taliban, the robbers would accost civilians on the streets, then take them to more concealed locations where they were robbed. One source in the Ministry of the Interior claims the groups have murdered several people and are also believed to be holding several prominent Afghans for ransom.
The Digest was informed that 5 of the 20 people who were killed in the recent tragic bus accident in Pakistan were Afghan students.
Security forces in Uzbekistan are said to have killed nearly 20 protestors and may have wounded 250 more when they dispersed an anti-government protest in Karakalpakstan. The protestors were incensed that President Shavkat Mirziyoyev was planning to change the constitution and strip the region of its autonomy. The president later dropped the plan to pacify the rioters.

The tightening of international isolation after the outbreak of a full-scale war in Ukraine has made the countries of Central Asia almost the only states that the Kremlin can still describe as partners. Putin's first and only trip abroad after the war was to this very region. At the same time, the practical outcome is unclear: it could have been an attempt to use Central Asian countries to circumvent sanctions and prevent gas transit to Europe, but the most concrete thing we know about the meeting in Dushanbe is the sabers and chess that Putin gave Berdymukhamedov, and the main outcome of the meeting in Ashgabat was a proposal to hold a joint carpet festival. Under the new conditions, Russia's influence in the region is becoming increasingly inferior to that of China, Turkey and the West.
