July 20, 2017, Yoshkar-Ola

While on a working trip to Yoshkar-Ola, Vladimir Putin visited the Republic of Mari El Timofei Yevseyev National Museum.

The President took in the exhibition on the customs and beliefs of the Mari people – one of the few peoples in Europe to have preserved paganism as their traditional religion.

The Timofei Yevseyev National Museum is the republic’s oldest museum and is a leading research, methodological and information centre with a unique collection. It was named after ethnographer, folklore historian and lecturer Timofei Yevseyev. Today, its collection has more than 230,000 items.
