As the reader from Tashkent told, in early July the clock appeared in the circle on the street Shota Rustaveli. In Telegram-channel “Overheard in Tashkent” noted that the clock is, but have not yet begun to work. In a photo published by one of the local residents, it is clear that the authors of the pedestal not only copied the look and color, but also the inscription “Time to remember”.

The original memorial is called “9/11 Memorial Clock” and is installed in the American city of Somerville (Massachusetts). Judging by the news of local media, the clock was opened in early September 2017.

The Tashkent hokimiyat (local authorities – note ) stated that they dismantle the clock after numerous disapproval of the residents.

Recently, in popular places around the city began to appear jewelry made of metal. Most of these constructions were positively met in social networks, however one of them turned out to be a controversial object and will be quickly dismantled.
