Historical Review of the Relations between the General Governor's Office of Turkestan and the Emirate of Bukhara.

Khudjayorova Sadokat Bakhtiyorovna


This article describes the diplomatic relations of the Russian Empire with the Emirate of Bukhara, which was established here after the conquest of the Central Asian khanates. As a result of military operations from 1865 to 1868, the Emirate was defeated and made dependent. For various purposes, the imperial government kept the Emirate of Bukhara in a semi-colonial position without ending it like the Kokand Khanate. The main reason for this was foreign policy issues. The treaties between Bukhara and the Russian Empire of 1868 did not satisfy the imperial government, and in 1873 another treaty was signed. In accordance with this agreement, it was agreed to establish relations with the Emirate of Bukhara through a diplomatic representative of the Russian Empire. In 1885, a new department, the Russian Imperial Political Agency, was established. As a result, the emirate's dependence on the empire increased. This article also briefly describes the history of the relations of the Governor-General of Turkestan, the vassal state of the Governor-General of Turkestan, the representative of the Russian Empire in the region, with the Emirate of Bukhara. You will get acquainted with such topical issues of our history in this research work.
