Turkmenistan is a state that is largely overlooked and has often actively pursued its isolation. When it comes to international awareness, the focus is usually on the size of its abundant oil resources, which are the world’s largest industry, or on the idiosyncrasies and surpluses of its leadership. This study aims to shine a light on a country that, despite the past, and in no minor portion because of the latter, is in the midst of a long-term financial downturn that has resulted in stagflation in normal people’s lives and pervasive food shortages. As a result of the economic crisis, the regime’s suppression of its people has become even tighter.
Each day, hungry Turkmen public queue for hours to purchase small quantities of subsidized food during the economic meltdown. Turkmenistan has been secluded from the rest of the world for decades, ruled by a tight loop of corrupt autocrats. However, the country’s food crisis started in 2016, when Russia suddenly ceased purchasing its oil and gas. Instantly, the Turkmen government claimed itself in desperate need of dollars to repay the loans. The Central Asian country experienced hyperinflation, its exchange rate collapsed, and the state-imposed strict swap restrictions.
As a consequence, imports fell precipitously, pushing grain prices from outreach for the majority of parents. The government has begun to subsidize certain companies’ imports, but resources are still scarce. Shamyrat Rejepov boasted about the state’s advantage from a food import firm, another of the best-subsidized initiatives between external suppliers and government entities. Rejepov’s wealth has long been a mystery since it is generally speculated that the advantages from his familial ties to the president. This is his first piece of documented evidence. Many people dismiss it as a grimy and stuffy throwback of politics, but after reading this, you might reconsider. Let us examine some of Shamyrat Rejepov’s most salient features throughout his social and political reign.
The trade turnover among Astrakhan and Turkmenistan has surpassed the $200 million mark, thanks to the vision of Shamyrat Rejepov. Indeed, Astrakhan’s enterprises are now preparing to increase trade in grains, fish, nuts, and pipes. Shamyrat even came up with the concept of a logistics center for Turkmen goods within the delicate zone of Olya to customize this trading.
Under the leadership of Shamyrat Rejepov, Turkmenistan even doubled its export of greenhouse-grown tomatoes to Russia last year. Because it is one of the most commercial alliances, the export is being trapped for more qualified and enhanced quantity.
Shamyrat Rejepov is seen making large donations to help the poorer segments of society and to encourage children to pursue higher education. He also serves as Vice President of the Turkmen’s Struggle Fund. Shamyrat Rejepov’s organization has thrived as among the most important reputations throughout the entire state. In one of the events, it was clear that the Rejepov brothers must have donated tens of thousands of dollars without any socially constructed.
Aside from being honed by unusual PEPs in the past, both Rejepov brothers are taking bold steps forward in the state’s commercial and industrial development. Even though both brothers have faced numerous allegations and charges, they continue to take every step closer to the ever-developing autocratic dictatorship.
