United Tajik Opposition

United Tajik Opposition

The United Tajik Opposition (UTO) was an alliance of democratic, liberal and Islamist forces that fought in the Tajik Civil War from 1992 to 1997 against the Moscow-backed administration of President Emomali Rahmonov.

While most members of the Islamic Renaissance Party stopped fighting the government in 1997, a small faction continued fighting against Central Asian governments as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.
