Zinaida heard this story from her mother who was from the Zyungar clan. In the Year of the Rabbit the Kalmyks, led by Ubashi Khan, set off to Tibet in search of a peaceful life. On their way they were attacked by Kazakhs and Tatars who stole beautiful Kalmyk girls. Children born from these Kalmyk women were good looking. Those Kalmyks who remained in Kalmykia composed various sad songs about this exodus.
