Two Villages Swelled and Flooded

Due to torrential rains during the last ten days, the Elegest and Durgen Rivers have swelled and flooded two settlements in Tuva-- the Elegest villiage and the Bai-Khaak villiage, located in two neighboring districts, Chedi Khol and Todzha. Last night more than six hundred people were evacuated from those villiages by helicopter. In the first villiage seventy-three children and around fifty adults were rescued from rooftops and other high places. In the second villiage five hundred local residents had to abandon their homes.

Ulug-Khem District has Finally Its Ruler

After a year, a marathon of an election in Ulug-Khem district has finally reached a close. On July 27 Victor Puruna, an ex-head of the Ulug-Khem district, was elected into the Chief Administrator position over runner-up Kaadyr-ool Koshkendei by thirty-nine votes. A year ago, Koshkendei won the election, but the results were challenged in court as Koshendei was shown to have included false information in his documents. He claimed to have a higher education, but actually has none. For a year the district has gone without a head. With the elections ending so dramatically, after election night on July 28, one of Koshendei's supporters was killed in the villiage of Aryskan-- he died of gunshot wounds.

Archaeological Season in Tuva is Coming to Its End

Archaeologists of the Hermitage expedition from St. Petersburg are finishing their fourteenth field season on burial mounds near the Dogee-Baary mountains in the vicinity of Kyzyl. According to the head of the expedition, Sergei Havrin, some of the burial mounds can be completely liquidated-- many of them have been plowed up by local citizens who use them as garden areas. Excavations are conducted on two graves-- one from Scythian time (5-6000 BC), and the other is from Hun time (3-1600 AD). There is a scarcity of funeral stock in contrast to the notable burial sites in Arzhaan.
