The first president of Kalmykia, the sixth president of FIDE congratulated the people of Kalmykia and all their friends on the beginning of spring, the holiday Tsagan Sar. The congratulation reads as follows:

“With all my heart I congratulate fellow countrymen and all my friends on the bright holiday of Tsagan Sar! Tsagan Sar is a symbol of the onset of spring and the awakening of nature, new beginnings and hopes. On this day, we look forward to the onset of spring - the giver of warmth and the awakening of nature. We associate all our hopes for joy and happiness with the advent of spring.

Tsagan Sar is a special holiday. In my native Kalmykia, spring has come officially today. Kalmyks have great respect and love for this holiday. Spring means it will be warm, it means green grass will appear in the steppe, and tulips will bloom. 

We believe that the long-awaited spring will bring everyone joy and prosperity. May the days of the holy White month become a time of fulfilment of hopes and good expectations! May this festive day warm all hearts with joy and warmth of communication with family and friends, bring harmony and love, happiness and good changes to your homes! May good luck accompany you in all your endeavors! ”
