I'm very happy to announce that the Affiliations Committee has recognized
 *Wikimedians of the Uzbek language User Group*  as a Wikimedia User
Group. It is a regional user group representing all Wikimedians who speak
the Uzbek language, a Turkic language spoken in Uzbekistan and elsewhere in
Central Asia. The group aims to enrich Wikimedia projects in the Uzbek
language, particularly the Uzbek Wikipedia and Uzbek Wiktionary. As a
regional user group, it serves to encourage Wikimedians in Central Asia and
elsewhere to get to know each other, as well as foster support for events
in the region.
Please join me in congratulating the members of this new user group!
Vice-Chair, Affiliations Committee
