; born December 25, 1951 in Bryansk) is the President of the Udmurt Republic (Udmurtia), located in the heart of Russia between the Kama (Kama River) and Vyatka Rivers. As President, Volkov is the highest official in the Udmurt Republic, the head of the republic's highest executive body, and leader of its two million citizens. Volkov took office November 3, 2000, for a five year term after the first presidential elections in the Udmurt Republic took place on October 15, 2000. Prior to the elections, Volkov was the speaker of the Udmurtia Republican Legislature. History The Vyatka breed was influenced by the climate and terrain of the Kirov, Udmurtia and western Perm (Perm Krai) regions; Estonian horses and Kleppers brought to northern Russia by Novgorod colonists from the 14th century may have affected its conformation, as may later imports of Estonian horses for mining work in the Ural Mountains. The Vyatka horse became known for draft abilities including endurance, speed and frugality. By the early 19th century, it was often used for pulling troikas, and some were exported from the Vyatka region, including to Poland. The breed has possibly also been influenced by Konik ponies.

national culture

* Sep — a picturesque Udmurt village in the Udmurt National Cedar Forest * Sundur — this village is a stronghold of Udmurt national culture * Votkinsk — a mid-sized industrial city with a big ICBM plant and the birthplace of the great Russian composer Tchaikovsky Other destinations Understand Udmurtia is named for its native Finno-Ugric Udmurt people, who have inhabited the Volga Region since at least the days of Ancient Greece. The majority of the Udmurt's recorded history has been devoted to fighting for survival and rebelling against their more powerful neighbors, the Mongols, Tatars, and Russians. But the Udmurts were perhaps finally subdued by the USSR, which purged most of the Udmurt nationalist intelligentsia and relocated large industries from Central Russia and with them large numbers of ethnic Russians, who now comprise the majority of the region's population while Udmurts now are represent only about a third. The Udmurts are of especial interest to anyone interested in paganism—Udmurtia is one of Europe's last remaining strongholds of organized shamanism, despite its active repression under the Tsarist and Soviet governments. Travelers interested in Udmurtia's native religion should try to seek out a recent Udmurt film, "Shadow of Alangasar." Shamanist structures and sites persist to this day in isolated villages throughout the region. Perhaps top on anyone's list of things to do in Udmurtia is to see the Udmurt national folk theater and dance company Italmas. Talk The Udmurt (Udmurt phrasebook) language shares official status with Russian (Russian phrasebook), but you can expect that anyone you meet will be at least bilingual in Russian. Udmurt is a Finno-Ugric language closely related to Komi (Komi Republic). Get in Flights arrive in Izhevsk from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Yekaterinburg.
