Russian village's last teacher stays on for her one remaining pupil 
Uminur Kuchukova, 61, could have retired years ago, but she continues to teach at this dying Russian village's once bustling school for the sake of its last pupil, a 9-year-old boy. When she leaves next year, the school will close.

Ravil Izhmukhametov, 9, and teacher Uminur Kuchukova, 61, attend the ceremony on the first day of the new school year next to a WWII monument in the village of Sibilyakovo, Omsk region, Russia, September 2, 2019. Kuchukova has taught at the school for 42 years. She could have retired years ago, but continues to teach at once bustling school for the sake of its last pupil. When she leaves next year, the school will close. She thinks Izhmukhametov will be old enough to travel to the neighbouring village for lessons. "I feel sorry for him. His parents don't want to leave (Sibilyakovo) yet and it's scary to send a little boy like him over the Irtysh, there are such big waves," she said. REUTERS/Alexey Malgavko

Plants have grown at an abandoned house in the village of Sibilyakovo, Omsk region, Russia, September 8, 2019. Like thousands of villages dotted across Russia, the remote Siberian village of Sibilyakovo emptied after the closure of its state-run collective farm following the 1991 collapse of the Soviet planned economy. In its heyday in the 1970s, Sibilyakovo's population was 550. It has shrunk to 39. REUTERS/Alexey Malgavko

Ravil is the only pupil in Sibilyakovo's primary school. He said he has no interest in moving to the city, but that he realizes he will have no choice one day. He was nonplussed when asked what it was like to go to school without any classmates. "I've got nothing to compare it to, but of course I'd like to have friends so I'm looking forward to going to the main school." REUTERS/Alexey Malgavko
