Secret Stans week: what it is … and how can you get involved
Guardian Cities is devoting a week to exploring the cities of the five former Soviet ‘Stans’ – Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan – and we want to hear from youTrophy city 2.0: can the Stans kick dictator chic?This week, Guardian Cities is exploring in depth the oft-ignored – and exceedingly difficult to report from – cities of the five “Stans”: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, a quarter of a century after they became independent from the former Soviet Union.From the bizarre architecture of the “trophy cities” to the joys and struggles of everyday urban life in some very unequal societies, our goal is to engage with the people who actually live in the Stans cities by publishing some of our reporting in the languages spoken there: not just Russian, often considered the language of the elite, but Turkmen, Kazakh, Uzbek, Kyrgyz and Tajik.

Trophy city 2.0: can the former Soviet Stans kick dictator chic?
The cities of the five former Soviet ‘Stans’ have been dominated by the personalities of their authoritarian rulers – but in Kazakhstan’s old capital of Almaty, at least, something new is afootSecret Stans week: what it is … and how can you get involvedFrom his office on the 20th floor of an Almaty tower, Ruslan Assaubayev outlines a vision for a new kind of city. Newly pedestrianised streets, a network of bike lanes and bus lanes, and modernised public transport are all part of a five-year plan developed in coordination with western consultants and implemented by the city authorities and Almaty Development Centre, a governmental organisation of which Assaubayev is the deputy head.Downstairs, brightly coloured logos adorn the white walls of the Open Almaty centre, a new branch of the mayoralty where locals can come and address questions or complaints to civil servants.A lot of it is very impressive, but local people weren’t asked whether they want it or notCentral Ashgabat is largely bereft of people, save the armies of cleaners who move methodically through the wide avenues Related: Secret Stans week: what it is … and how can you get involved Continue reading...

'People are afraid to say a word': inside Ashgabat, Central Asia's closed city
When Stanislav Volkov began reporting for the Alternative Turkmenistan News, the secret service cut his internet and threw acid at him – all for daring to describe the harsh reality of daily life in this notoriously reclusive capitalWhen I was child, Ashgabat was known as the “garden city”. It drowned in greenery, canals gurgled with mountain water and trees cast a shady cool even in July and August. In the evenings, neighbours would gather around gazebos and drink tea.After Turkmenistan gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Ashgabat experienced a second birth. Today, modern Ashgabat is jokingly called the “city of the dead”, because it is almost impossible to see people in the new districts of white marble. The city holds the Guinness Book of Records title for most white marble on Earth. It holds several records, in fact: the world’s largest enclosed observation wheel, the largest fountain, the largest mural of a star. The new airport has the world’s largest image of a Turkmen carpet, adorning the main passenger terminal. Until recently, the capital even boasted the world’s tallest flagstaff. All of these new toys, these buildings, parks and roads, were supposedly built for the people. They paid for it with their silence.It is forbidden to open windows, install air conditioners or hang clothes on any street where the president might passSome areas spend days without water and electricity, while central fountains flow and lights burn brightly for no one Related: A horse, a horse … Turkmenistan president honours himself with statue Continue reading...

Starved out of Myanmar: hunger drives thousands more Rohingya to flee
In Bangladesh, new arrivals from Myanmar said closure of food markets across Rakhine state and restrictions on aid had driven them over the borderHungry, destitute and scared, thousands of new Rohingya refugees crossed the border into Bangladesh from Myanmar early on Monday, fleeing violence and hunger that the United Nations has called ethnic cleansing. The new arrivals said they were driven out by hunger because food markets in Myanmar’s western Rakhine state had been shut down and aid deliveries restricted. They also reported attacks by the military and Rakhine Buddhist mobs. Wading through waste-deep water with children strapped to their sides, the Rohingya said they had walked for days through bushes and monsoon-swollen streams from Myanmar’s Buthidaung region before reaching the border.
