After Karimov, only Rustam Inoyatov, chief of the National Security Service (SNB), the post-Soviet KGB successor agency, is seen as having as much political influence as Mirziyoyev.

The SNB runs the country, and Rustam Inoyatov runs the SNB.
Col. Gen. Rustam Inoyatov, Chairman of the National Security Service (SNB), is regarded as one of the most powerful men in Uzbekistan. He was born on 22 June 1944 and graduated from the Tashkent Faculty of Oriental Studies, learning Farsi and English. He is also one of the heads of the influential Tashkent "clan," which is allied with the Ferghana clan. These two clans are based in Tashkent, Ferghana, Andijan and Namangan through their alliance.
ccording to some reports, the February 1999 Tashkent bombings were masterminded by the SNB under the leadership of Inoyatov against the MVD.
Inoyatov most likely knew about this plan and let it happened anyway.
According to a report published by the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute, the rumour of Karimov's resignation due to health problems prompted Inoyatov and Almatov to try to seize power, and "both leaders considered coup d'états in 2004, early 2005, and in mid-2005. These "coup d'états" were more like confrontations between Inoyatov and Almatov that could eventually lead to the removal of Karimov.
Inoyatov's armed forces were smaller than Almatov's, but he did have a number of elite spetsnaz units, such as the Special-Purpose Unit Alpha, Special Recon Platoon Scorpion, and Special Unit Cobra (similar to the US Delta Force).
At the beginning of 2005, Inoyatov was given control over the Customs Service and the 10,000 strong border security services as well as the river fleet, nearly doubling the number of troops under his control.
This rapid shift in the security structures reflected the internal fight between Almatov and Inoyatov.
A shakeup of the MVD and SNB security and counter-terrorism agencies considerably increased the power and resources of the SNB-a happy ending for Inoyatov, it seems. However, Inoyatov did not stop there. With the only person holding him back gone, he now had the freedom take over the whole government.
Wikileaks cable revealed that the SNB "wields significant influence in the Presidential Apparat, with the National Security Council composed of professional [SNB] officers… [that] Inoyatov has personally endorsed… Two [SNB] officers also control the Senate and Legislative Chamber, providing instructions that guide their actions."

With Almatov gone, Inoyatov began making indirect moves against Karimov.
Inoyatov has "kompromat"… on Norov obtained from Norov's days as an ambassador in Europe, where he was allegedly involved in unspecified "shady dealings.
After Norov, Abdualaziz Komilov was appointed Foreign Minister, who was the "head of the Uzbek KGB" until Karimov replaced him with Inoyatov in 1995.
Inoyatov, who was supposed to be Karimov's man against Almatov turned the tables, and like Putin did in Russia, put the whole country under his influence. Karimov is cut off from information that Inoyatov doesn't want him to know.
Every new wave of anti-government resentment that briefly erupts in Uzbekistan is used by Inoyatov for his own advantage.

And it's particularly appalling that Inoyatov arrived in Germany just as the Uzbeks were throwing another brave dissident in prison.
Rustam Inoyatov, head of the National Security Service of Uzbekistan, flew to Germany on October 23, the same day that an Uzbek court sentenced a prominent human rights activist to 10 years in prison on politically motivated charges.
A visa ban had prevented Inoyatov and seven other current and former high-ranking Uzbek officials from visiting countries of the European Union for the last three years (the list originally numbered 12 but was shortened to eight in the spring of 2007). It was lifted on October 13, 2008.
Among the abuse suffered by the sentenced activist, Akzam Turgunov, during his official interrogation was having boiling water poured down his back, rendering him unconscious.
"Inoyatov's visit shows precisely why the visa ban should never have been lifted in the first place," said Rachel Denber, Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch.
And it's particularly appalling that Inoyatov arrived in Germany just as the Uzbeks were throwing another brave dissident in prison."
Uzmetronom, an Uzbek nongovernmental news website, reported on October 23 that Inoyatov and a delegation of Uzbek security officials had flown to Germany on an official visit. It is not known how long they will remain in the country.
The European Union imposed the visa ban on Inoyatov and the other Uzbek officials in October 2005, in response to the Uzbek government's refusal to allow an independent, international inquiry into the May 2005 massacre in Andijan, in eastern Uzbekistan, and the ensuing government crackdown on civil society.
