Sanal talks about Khoshuds in Kalmykia: I was born in Ketchenery. I am Khoshud from the Airgud clan. My mother is Zyungar from the Badmakhin clan. In Kalmykia, there are few Khoshuds, from three to five thousand in total. Outside Russia, the majority of Khoshuds live in Kukunor, China. In Kalmykia, Khoshuds live in the villages of Sarpa, Khosheut and Altsynkhuta. My ancestors lived in the village of Kivzing. Some Khoshud families also live in the Astrakhan region. Both Khoshuds and Zyungars came to the Volga later than the rest of the Kalmyks. It is customary for Khoshud men to marry Zyungar women and for Khoshud women to marry Zyungar men.
