This is an example of common English usage (particularly in news reports, due to brevity required in headlines) that you may not be aware of, Vladik. It is not suggesting that there is an autocephalous Uzbek Orthodox Church, but describing what is going on at/in the Orthodox church at a given geographical location. A similar story reported from any other location might be worded similarly: "Monaco Orthodox Church", "San Francisco Orthodox Church", etc., without implying that these are autonomous entities in the way you're reading it.
Thanks, but I just wanted to clear the Central Asian jurisdictional peculiarity.
No Orthodox Uzbeks? That's a shame. We shall have to work on that.
There is a few Orthodox Uzbeks. Some priests and nuns speak Asian languages, and - I believe - there are some Asian priests either.
The half of Tashkent's population (Uzbekistanian capital) is still European, they make the majority of laity there.
That's a shame.
The same has said Fr Maximus Urbanovicz, when we were talking about local Church's activities, a couple of years ago
