Tuvan national instruments became the foundation of the Siberian collection of the State ethnographic museum of Warsaw. The museum obtained 2 igils and 2 byzaanchy – handcrafted bowed string instruments, as well as a shamaness’ costume from the collection of ethnic costumes in possession of the Tuvan artists who are now on tour throughout Europe in the framework of the presentation program “Regions of Russia. Republic in the center of Asia – Tyva.”

Tuva covered by a snowstorm

Squall winds with snow covered the republic late at night of March 18. The wind speed reached storm condition at times, and the snowfall was so strong, that visibility on highways was under 5 meters. Drivers simply could not continue driving and had to stop and get off the roads. In the conditions of disaster power outage in Kyzyl, the lights remained on only in some sections of Chuldum Street, where the lights are powered by solar batteries. As the meteorology center of Tuva announced, the snowfall during these 24 hours was about equal to a full month’s amount.
