A Museum of the family of Emperor Nicholas II is to be opened in Tobolsk. Opening is scheduled on April 28. Vladimir Mazur, Mayor of the city, visited the site. Anna Gromova, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Elisavetinsko-Sergievskoe Educational Society Fund, organized a tour for the Mayor.

Moscow Fund of encouragement of revival of charity and compassion traditions Elisavetinsko-Sergievskoe Educational Society is the curator of the new site of the Tyumen Museum and Educational Association. Under the patronage of Anna Gromova, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Elisavetinsko-Sergievskoe Educational Society Fund, working groups comprised of expo organizers, consultants and museum experts perform installation of permanent exhibition complexes, interior design works and preparation of printed materials and souvenirs. The Mayor noted that opening of the Museum of the family of Emperor Nicholas II will lead to a new development of Tobolsk tourism sector as a whole and the lower part of the city in particular:

“Nizhny Posad underwent tremendous changes in the last 15 years. Restoration of the house of the merchant Kornilov is finished and in November 2010 the magistrates moved here along with the established Museum of Judiciary; the cathedral mosque and the Saint Zachary and Elisabeth Church were opened after reconstruction. Polish Catholic Church of Holy Trtinity was also restored“, listed Vladimir Mazur. He added that the tourist attractiveness of a city depends on many factors: “The work on cleaning of beds of foothill rivers goes constantly, the waterfronts are constructed and recreation zones are established, roads are being reconstructed, social service facilities are being adjusted and children playgrounds are being constructed. New beautiful comfortable houses appear in the foothill part of the city, with new appearance forming based on the basis of conservation and active use of rich historic and cultural heritage as well as natural and landscape complex”.

The new Museum exhibition is located in the memorial building of the Governor’s house and it is historically associated with the exile of the Imperial family of Nicholas II between August 1917 and April 1918. During the preparation for exhibition, an extensive work was done on restoration, repair of the building and improvement of the adjacent territory. The main task, namely preservation of elements of authenticity, is performed at the adequate level.

Museum of the family of Emperor Nicholas II will become the heart of the tour program in the Tobolsk city tourist project Emperor’s Route, being implemented under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation together with the Elisavetinsko-Sergievskoe Educational Society Fund, Consumer Market and Tourism Department and the Culture Department of the Tyumen region.

Creation of the Museum gives an opportunity to draw public attention to the fate of the family if the Russian Emperor Nicholas II, family structure and public service as well as to the historic and cultural heritage of the Tobolsk city, the region and Russia as a whole.

Reindeer breeders in Russia’s Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area have caught two wild reindeer and tagged them in order to track domesticated reindeer being lured away by them from local herds, the regional science and innovations department said on Wednesday.

RIA Novosti. Pavel Lvov

In late autumn 2017, department sources said wild reindeer had lured away domesticated female reindeer in groups of 50-300 during the October-November mating season. This problem only affects a few local farms, they noted.

Last winter, satellite transceivers were delivered to the Ilebts community of small indigenous Northern ethnic groups, and it took reindeer breeders another month to locate and catch wild reindeer. The search was hampered by bad weather, with wild reindeer herds roaming the tundra at will. In late March, reindeer breeders caught two animals, tagged them with transceivers and set them free, department sources commented.

“Satellite transceivers will relay data to the Russian Center for Developing the Arctic, and this data will be used by Yamal reindeer breeding farms. It is necessary to monitor wild-herd migration routes to prevent wild reindeer from luring away their domesticated ‘relatives,'” they added.

Earlier, Alexander Yuzhakov, DSc (Agriculture), who deals with this matter, told RIA Novosti that there are few local wild reindeer and they have not been sighted in the tundra until now so it is unusual for them to lure away domesticated reindeer in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area. He said it was impossible to shoot them because they are listed in the Yamal Red Data Book. But local reindeer farms would sustain extra losses if the wild reindeer population starts increasing. Insurance companies that could help compensate such losses are reluctant to do so because it is hard to obtain authentic data from remote herds.

Agro-industrial complex of the Tyumen region becomes one of the most attractive sectors of economy for investors. Enough food is produced here on an industrial basis; the agricultural sector demonstrates steady growth and thereby asserts itself as an established business segment.

More and more real investment projects are being implemented in the sector each year as a result, having a positive effect on the economy. At the press conference held yesterday, Vladimir Cheymetov, Deputy Governor of the Tyumen region, director of the regional Agro-industrial Department, spoke of last year’s progress made in this direction, of plans for 2018 and the future prospects.


For instance, several major investment projects in the agro-industrial sector were successfully implemented in the Tyumen region in 2017, for total amount of almost 15 billion Rubles. A pig breeding, growing and selective breeding farm was established in the Nizhnetavdinsky district (OOO Svinokompleks Tyumensky). This livestock complex aims to produce up to 4 tons of live weight pork annually. The farm has 4th level of biological protection. An important (even on a national scale) investment project was finished in Ishim, creating a deep processing plant for wheat (ZAO Plemzavod Yubileiny). In particular, lysine will be produced here: an amino acid that is widely used in agriculture, including animal fodder. Just two years ago Russian Federation used to buy 100% of this product abroad.

The capacity of this new plant will meet 40% of demand of the Russian market for this product. The plant is running as expected. A dairy good complex with 4,600 stalls was created in the Golyshmanovsky district by OOO Tyumenskie molochnye fermy (GK DAMATE). This is one of the largest and most advanced complexes in Russia. After reaching its full capacity, the complex will produce 120 tons of milk daily, or 42 thousand tons of milk annually. As of now, 60 tons of milk are produced daily and calving meets set schedule. Also, an investment project was implemented in 2017 in the Yurginsky district for construction of turkey breeding and processing complex (OOO Absolut-Agro). 10 thousand tons of meet is planned to be produced in 2018 by the enterprise. Please note that just these major projects enabled creation of more than one thousand jobs in the agro-industrial complex of the region.

It is planned to keep the pace in 2018. For instance, a dairy good farm for 1,800cows is under construction in the Plekhanovo village of the Yarkovsky district of the Tyumen region (OOO Agrofirma Mezhdurechye). It is possible that the complex will be opened already this spring. A significant project is the construction of a potato processing plant in the Uporovo village of the Tyumen region (OOO Agrofirma KRIMM). This is the first vegetable processing plant of the kind in our country. Implementation of this project would in the near future allow the Tyumen region to present its agricultural products for export, increase the potato planting areas and strengthen its position for potato gross yield in the Russian Federation.

All major poultry farms are being modernized, presuming increase of their capacity. Construction of another full cycle broiler chicken breeding and processing complex with capacity of 40,000 tons per year is planned to be started this year (OOO Ruskom). Construction of the third set of the greenhouse complex for year-round vegetable farming is planned to be started in the Tyumen region in 2018 (OOO Teplichny kombinat Tyumen Agro), with its project documentation being prepared.

Small and medium enterprises are active along with the major players. The entrepreneurs are trying new approaches. For instance, in the Isetsky district it is planned to establish kumis production according to international regulations, in the Berdyuzhsky district it is planned to open a major cheese spread production shop, in the Vikulovsky district a smoke shop is planned (fish), in the Omutinsky district a new business is opening in a form of fruit and vegetable husbandry, including a new direction: cultivation of winter garlic (the first planting was performed in the fall of 2017), and in the Tyumensky district a production complex for mushroom growing and processing is being organized.

About 3.5 thousand of new jobs are to be created, with more than 700 of them in 2018.

The United Arab Emirates, China and Turkmenistan got interested in the Tyumen sapropel. Foreign companies wish to use this useful mineral with a high content of organic substances and amino acids as an effective recultivant to restore depleted soils. Oksana Ivaschenko, Master of Agriculture and expert advisor of GK Tyumensky sapropel, told about this at the 2018 Forum of subsoil users.


She mentioned that the company extracts its sapropel in the Yalutorovsky district, at the Nepryak Lake, 6 km from the Stary Kavdyk village. The water surface area is of about 2 km, with the distance between the lake surface and deposit is from 20 cm to 1.5 m. The lake silt is extracted by hydro-mechanical means, using only home equipment.

The Nepryak Lake sapropel is unique due to its high content of organic matter, up to 54%. It contains humic acids having antibacterial and bioactive properties that, being combined with amino acids, allows enriching the soil and nourishing plants. Also, this mineral is harmless in terms of microbiology and has no parasites in it, so it won’t harm farmlands.

According to Oksana Ivashenko, sapropel can be used not only as fertilizer and recultivant, but also in medicine, veterinary medicine, cosmetics and oil production. As of now, the Tyumen company specializes on creation of an organic fertilizer from sapropel, but it is currently developing recipes of soil mixes and subsoils and plans to use sapropel as a food additive and compound fodder preservative.

She noted that among the problems encountered by entrepreneurs one can be named that many people are unfamiliar with the beneficial properties of this mineral and don’t know about its advantages over usual mineral fertilizers and manure. Among these advantages she mentioned its environmental safety and long lasting effect: according to certain data, it can last up to 7-8 years depending on the intensity of land use.

“We are conducting experimental studies for usage of sapropel in recultivation of solid municipal waste landfills preventing the toxic substances leaking into the environment, in neutralization of disposal sites of dangerous wastes of livestock and poultry enterprises as well as in cleaning of territories polluted by petroleum products”, clarified the expert.

The volume of investments in the project amounted to 80 million Rubles. The project is being implemented with the support of the Government of the Tyumen region and is being maintained by the Investment Policy and Entrepreneurial State Support Department as well as the Investitsionnoe agentstvo Tyumenskoy oblasti Fund.

Tyumen scientists have studied the kinetics of growth and enzyme activity in bacterial strains of the isolated from permafrost Bacillus genus as a function of incubation temperatures.

For the research, the scientists used Bacillus bacteria samples drawn from oil wells in Tarko-Sale (north of West Siberia). In a result of a microbiological analysis of the samples, 9 pure cultures of Bacillus spp were received. The strains species identification was conducted on the basis of their cultural, morphological, physiological and biochemical characteristics.


“The research results show that +5°С and +22°С are perfect temperatures for Bacillus strains growth, which exposes the psychrotolerant nature of isolates and their ability to survive and reproduce in a wide temperature range,” reported Olga Domanskaya, researcher from the UTMN International Institute of Cryology and Cryosophy.

She explained that active synthesis of specific enzymes is a universal adaptation mechanism for living in low temperature. Enzymes that are highly active at low above-zero temperature allow to offset cellular metabolic disorder, which enables bacteria cell to continue growing but with less speed.

Using the experimental data, the cryologists proved enzyme activity increase in the most of studied Bacillus strains under the conditions of low above-zero temperature.

Studying microorganisms of cryolithic zone is of a great scientific and applied interest, as existing within extreme conditions (such as low temperature) microbiota acquires unique features, in particular, enhanced activity of specific enzymes.

The results expand the knowledge about isolates usage options in applied biotechnological research. The research was conducted as part of the assignment by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.
