On 16 May, the first president of Kalmykia Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met in his Moscow office with his compatriot Gerel Vankaeva.

Gerel is a graduate of Moscow State University. She studied at the Faculty of World Politics. She also graduated from the Faculty of International Trade of the Shanghai University with a red diploma. She is fluent in English and Chinese. She recently won a contest for young business leaders in Russia and goes to study in America.
