1944-1991 History of Touva





Tuva since 1991



When the USSR disintegrated on December 30th 1991, Russia became independent; Tuva gained the status of an (no longer Soviet socialist) autonomous republic within the Russian Federation (March 31st 1992). The Tuvinian constitution of October 1993 created a parliament, the Kural.
The transit from communism to capitalism resulted in the revival of livestock herding. In 1994-1995 Tuva again issued postage stamps, which were not recognized by the Russian authorities as valid and therefore never were used.
In 1995 Kyzyl Teachers College as upgraded to Tuva State University. Traditional religions (Buddhism, Shamanism) experience a revival; the Dalai Lama briefly visited Tuva in 1992.
