   The same old pre-perestroyka regimes still are existent in most of
the central Asian republics, especially Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan,
and to some extent also Kazakhstan. 

   No break at all in the leading personel, hardly in the way of
ruling the society. 

   No need to grieve over the loss of the old die-hard stalinists.
They still rule in Tashkent and Ashkhabad. They are today the best
allies of US imperialism. 

   Is that what you are looking for?
