Russian politician Irina Khakamada: Cheerful small nation

East – a delicate matter. This is common knowledge. But one thing – to talk about it, and quite another – encounter this subtlety in life.

Kalmykia amazed me. After arriving flying in Elista, I came to the country untouched democracy. Such a quietand kind, peaceful Khanate. Little virgin island in the vast sea of unbridled, it is not regulated Russian democracy.

I was shown all that is most remarkable in the culture of Kalmykia. Monuments of history, temples, folk groups. This is impressive.

I saw the famous City-Chess – pet project of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. Now he has another, no less than a great idea – the construction of of the cargo port that allows Elista advantage of its geographical position exactly between the south and east.

I met with this plan – really, very interesting.

The inflow of foreign capital, large-scale construction in the future – to strengthen trade and transport links. This is very important for Republic.

Elista – clean town with unusually good ecological situation – demonstrates an amazing combination of wealth and poverty.
