Tuva man makes false claims to please Medvedev about origin of throat singing and milk vodka

Tuvan Singer Kongar Ondor said Mongolia is not original place of throat singing and milk vodka. Well, I don't know about Tuva. All i know is my grandma used to make milk vodka from cow and horse milk. It is something she learned from her mom. Milk vodka is original in Mongolia for centuries.We lack fruits and berries. All we have is milk and much of it. So how can milk vodka be not native in Mongolia land of five animals!

I also know that throat singing in Kovd and Uvs, most western provinces of Mongolia is tradition and people from all over the world come to Mongolia to learn throat singing. How can Kongar Ondar say these things? How can he put Mongolia in line with China? He must have tried hard to please his Russian master by making these false claims. He must have forgotten that Tuva was part of Mongolia before 1920s. It was called Uriankhai region.

You lying Tuva man Kongar Ongar better watch you mouth next time. I understand that you was brought to Kremlin by Russians and you was nervous and afraid. Maybe it is slip of tongue.

Here is original story distributed by Russian News Agency Ria-Novosti.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev promised a singer from the Southern Siberian republic of Tuva to invite U.S. President Barack Obama to listen to the republic’s world-famous throat singing.

During a meeting between Medvedev and cultural figures in Moscow on Thursday, Kongar Ondar, a throat singer from Tuva, complained to the president that China and Mongolia often “falsely” claim that “throat singing and milk vodka” originated from their countries.

Then U.S. President George Bush professed a liking for both during a visit to Mongolia in 2005.

“I can’t promise anything as far as Bush is concerned, but I’ll try to invite Obama to listen,” Medvedev promised.
