Putin Chose Tuva as a Holiday Place for his Honourable Guest

It was Tuva that was chosen by President Vladimir Putin  out of 88 Russian regions to host Monaco Prince Albert for a 3 days-holiday. Interesting to note that just before this high visit, on August 12, it rained heavily in Kyzyl, where the last 2 weeks the temperature stayed at +30-35 (Celsium). Kyzyl residents thought the rain a sign for the weather change but on the next morning the sky was again virgin blue and the temperature quickly recovered from +13 to its +30-34 (Celsium) and stayed like this during the whole visit. The airplane 'Russia' landed in Kyzyl airport at 10.05 a.m. August 13. The high guests were greeted by Sergei Shoigu, federal minister for emeregency situations, native of Tuva, and Sholban Kara-ool, head of the republic. Putin and Alber the Second several minutes after the arrival mounted a helicopter which was taking them from one beautiful place in Tuva to another.

New Russian Law Prompted by Parliamentary Crisis in Tuva

The State Duma passed in the first reading on April 18 with 343 votes in favor a bill drafted primarily by lawmakers from the pro-Kremlin Unified Russia that would empower republic heads to dissolve parliaments on the basis of a court ruling should the legislature not convene for its maiden session and begin functioning "effectively" within 30 days of its election. That bill was prompted by the boycott by legislators from the Russian Party of Life (RPZh) whose election last October to the Great Khural of the Republic of Tyva (Tuva) was annulled by a Kyzyl court.
