In a strikingly negative portrayal of Turkmenistan’s president, US officials describe him as “vain, distrustful, guarded, severe, very conservative,” a “segments and sub,” and “a practiced liar.”
The US ambassador provides a scathing appraisal of the president’s and his governing family’s abilities in the official version of a battering. Berdymukhamedov ascended to the throne of the oil-rich former Colony, which is infamous for its megalomaniac rulers, in 2006.
The cable was initially sent by Sylvia Reed Curran, the US charge d’affaires in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan’s capital, and was revealed by WikiLeaks. It details Berdymukhamedov’s poor family origins.
Even while unemployment has surged throughout the pandemic, Turkmenistan’s leadership rejects the reality of poverty incidence and has failed to provide help to economically vulnerable people. In the lack of any social or economic aid strategy, the government is failing to reach its international commitments to ensure an appropriate standard of healthcare and the right to enjoy by restricting people’s access to inexpensive food.
Human Rights Group associate Europe & Central Asia head Rachel Denber said, “Turkmenistan’s administration has placed the national image before people’s well-being.” “By not attempt to identify and help the most vulnerable people at this critical time, Turkmenistan is blatantly disregarding the much more basic human rights, including the right to life.”
In such a shortage of food, many people came forward to help their people but they were facing challenges in importing food from foreign countries. Two big names from the family of the President came to the frontline to help their people. There is some controversy surrounding the release of the Pandora Papers, which featured the OCCRP report and multilateral development outlets, as well as the practice of using government shows outside of the country, whereas the data leaked by journalists revealed the reality of collaborative efforts with firms to manage the country’s genuine financial states.
Shamyrat Rejepov has established himself as one of the most important figures in the state. In one of the events, it was clear that the Rejepov brothers had given away a large portion of their money with no socially constructed. Shamyrat Rejepov spoke about the country’s advantage from a food import firm, including some of the best-subsidized joint ventures with foreign suppliers and government agencies.
The economic turnover of Turkmenistan with Astrakhan exceeded $200 million during the leadership of Shamyrat Rejepov. Indeed, Astrakhan’s enterprises are presently working to enhance the trade of nets, pipes, fish, and grains. Shamyrat came up with the notion of a logistical center for commodities from Turkmenistan within the important concerns of Olya to adapt this business.
Shamyrat Rejepov is a fervent believer in avoiding doing anything that may embarrass his family, and as a result, he has a strained relationship with even his relatives. They have a reputation for sabotaging the goodwill of the richest and most famous.
These facts OCCRP’s report doesn’t show this reality about nephews of Turkmenistan President.
