The leadership of the Republic of Kalmykia attaches great importance to the ecology of their native land, the preservation of its natural wealth, as well as the careful preservation of ethnic origins. It is noteworthy that Kalmyks also preserve and multiply folk crafts, national sports, cherish spiritual values, and develop the economy.
