Report from the Expedition to the Peak of Love and the Peak of Friendship

Dear Friends,

We are delighted to report that Michael Ustinov’s expedition to the Tunka range, a part of the Eastern Sayan mountains, has finished successfully. The Morality Movement flags were raised on the Peak of Love, the Peak of Friendship and at the Arshan pass.

By a lucky coincidence, Michael’s mission was successfully finished one day before a big river flood occurred in the Republic of Buryatia and caused significant damages to the town of Arshan.

Below is the expedition report:
