Yuriy says that in the past Kalmyks were respectful towards their elders and guests and always addressed them as ‘thee’. People consumed alcohol with measure and did not behave badly. For their behaviour, Kalmyks were respected by other ethnic groups. Upon their return from Siberian exile, Yuriy’s family grew corn, watermelons, and wheat, which they sold.
