Ilyumzhinov congratulates his countrymen on the Spring Holiday

I cordially congratulate fellow countrymen on the bright holiday of Tsagan Sar! Spring has officially come today to my small homeland - my native Kalmykia.

Kalmyks’ Tsagan Sar is the beginning of spring, a symbol of the awakening of nature, a time of new beginnings and accomplishments. Tsagan Sar is the beginning of the White month, when hopes are fulfilled and the most cherished dreams come true.


We have a wonderful ancient custom to celebrate this holiday with our relatives and closest people, to congratulate them on the beginning of the White month, to get together so that everyone is happy and secure as part of a large and beautiful family.

May this holiday fill your hearts with the joy and warmth of communication; may it bring harmony and understanding, happiness and good changes to your homes! May good luck accompany you in all your endeavours!
I sincerely wish you all good health, happiness, prosperity and success.
