10 Tuvan Children Invited to Kremlin New Year Matinee

alt Ten Tuvan children are on the way to Moscow. The good ten were chosen to represent Tuva among the quests of the most prestigous New Year performance in the Kremlin where children from all over Russia will be present. 'Tuvan quota' of 10 is insufficient, the Tuvan Ministry for Social Defense spokesperson confessed to Tuva-Online: "Every year we try to persuade federal authorities that almost half of the Tuva's population is children - 130,000 out of 300,000 residents - but they would not change the limit defined on the basis of the overall population number". Transport expenses are covered by the regional authorities which have none extra. That is why the lucky ones go to the Russian capital by train. Only two of them fly to Moscow. Almost 50,000 rubles ($1800) needed for the 2 airplane tickets were collected by Tuvan militiamen. The two are children of the militiamen killed in service.
