A thriving Uzbek bakery says it's been put out of business by the president's "Prosperous Village" program. One of the owners sent RFE/RL a video showing their ovens rusting in a field, saying their previous premises were demolished. Previously, people have reported being forced to work for free for the program, which aims to build showcase villages.
