THE ROLE OF RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS IN THE SOURCE STUDY OF THE BUKHARA KHANATE
The article is devoted to showing the position of Russian scientists in the sourceology of the Bukhara Khanate of the XX century. Although there is information about some aspects of the contribution of Russian scientists to the sourceology of the Bukhara Khanate, the topic is holistic, not specifically studied. The article is considered one of the first attempts, there are some shortcomings in the article. It is known that since 1500, The Dashti Kipchak Uzbeks, led by Sheibani khan, subjugated Movarounnahr, Khorezm, Khurasan and northern Afghanistan, together with Badakhshan and founded a new state - the Sheibanids. In 1533, Ubaydulla khan (1533 – 1539) moved the capital from Samarkand to Bukhara. In 1551–1556, the son of Iskandar the Sultan, Abdulla khan II won the battle among Sheibanids for Movarounnahr and in 1557 Bukhara became the capital of the permanent khanat . It was headed by representatives of the shaibanids from 1500 to 1601 year, from 1601 to 1756 years by janids (ashtarkhanids), from 1756 to 1920 years by the mangite dynasty.
