The Wider Image: Russian village's last teacher stays on for her one remaining pupil
Elmira washes her son Ravil Izhmukhametov, 9, the evening before the first day of the new school year in the village of Sibilyakovo, Omsk region, Russia, September 1, 2019. Ravil is the only pupil in Sibilyakovo's primary school. He said he has no interest in moving to the city, but that he realises 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 SEARCH "SIBILYAKOVO MALGAVKO" FOR THIS STORY.
