Like a blue streak, Turkmenistan is rolling into the open embrace of a political, economic and genetic collapse. It's hard to escape such a gloomy conclusion after getting acquainted with the report of the Carnegie Endowment, which was published recently under Paul Stronsky's authorship. The report of the American agency is based on a study, which was conducted with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Thus, it contains an external view on the country – on the part of both the American establishment and, partially, the European one.

It is rather difficult to talk about the place and role of Turkmenistan in the global economic environment. The fact is, our country has to integrate on its own in the world where everyone defends their own interests and is not ready to sacrifice their personal gain. Moreover, the success of a neighbor – and even that of a partner – is perceived as annoying rather than gladdening, so one should be ready to get a stab in the back at any time. But let us consider the good things first.

The Ukrainian public relations experts do not skimp on the loud slogans and striking comparisons. The high self-esteem they showcase in their advertising is absolutely breathtaking. For example, let's consider the advertising of the achievements of the local agricultural industry. This is simply a gem!

The death of President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov literally caused a flurry of comments of experts of different caliber, who were almost unanimously expressing concerns about the future of both the country and the entire Central Asian region. There were expressed opinions that contained varying degrees of concern regarding the possible exacerbation of the struggle between clans for power in Tashkent. That would threaten regional security, considering the information available about the penetration of radical Islam in Central Asia.

In the middle of 2015, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Ashgabat on a two-day visit. The voyage was scheduled for mid-October, but it was postponed due to the terrorist attacks in Ankara. Much changed during those two months.

Quite recently, the Turkmen-Turkish cooperation in the field of cultural exchanges was viewed by the two countries as a progressive and useful one.

In addition, thousands of Turkmen students are studying in Turkish universities. More than 10,000 Turkish citizens are currently living in Turkmenistan.

In February, the Swedish news agency TT jointly with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) published the results of an investigation of the situation in the cotton industry of Turkmenistan. The authors of the report make loud statements about the use of child labor, encouraging Western companies to set aside raw materials of the Turkmen origin. What is actually behind this investigation?

The last month of 2015 and the first month of 2016 were marked by three important events in Turkmenistan: the launch of construction of the TAPI gas pipeline, the establishment of the National Oil and Gas Company (NAPESCO), and the establishment of the republic's own electronics industry.
