Describing the Tajik Civil War as an only case within the territories of the former Soviet Union would not be an exaggeration. First of all, it was the first and only civil war erupted in former Soviet republics. While Chechens were fighting against Russians, Armenians against Azeris, Ossetians against Georgians, Tajiks were fighting against each other. Consequently the War was dubbed as “Jangi Barodarkushi” by the Tajikistani people, meaning that it was a conflict in which brothers killed their own brothers.

Secondly, the casualties were very high. As was mentioned above, according to official sources, 100,000 people were killed. But according to opposition sources, this number was as high as 300,000, that is more than 5% of Tajikistan’s population.3 In addition to the human loss, the economy of Tajikistan was seriously ruined. Tajikistan, being the poorest republic of the former Soviet Union, was heavily dependent on the subsidies coming from Moscow. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, this flow of subsidies was cut off. This was a serious blow to the Tajik economy. The eruption of the Civil War within less than a year, hampered the economy further. During the five-year Civil War all sectors were shrinking. It was reported that:
“after declining an estimated 40 percent between 1990 and 1993, industrial production dropped another 31 percent in 1994. Declines in the Dushanbe and Sughd regions exceeded that figure. The most serious declines were in chemicals, engineering, metal processing, building materials, light industry, and food processing. According to government reports, production declines generally were greater in privately owned industries than in state enterprises.”

I’m like sitting here listening to a Afghan playlist (though this song is definitely in Arabic) scrolling through a NSFW blog

What is wrong with my life?

Oh jeez we’ve ALL got thirst follows

My problem is like my thirst follows aren’t just hot people … they’re like guys I’d date… but they usually live far away… and don’t notice me :(

And there’s another thirst follow, ladies and gents

Now that I follow Georgian bloggers, I really want to start learning Georgian again… ugh…

I still can’t get over the fact that the German word for ‘turkey’ is Pute… I will never grow up
