The Wider Image: Russian village's last teacher stays on for her one remaining pupil
Spouses Rafik and Gulfira Koldasheva harvest potatoes in the village of Sibilyakovo, Omsk region, Russia, September 7, 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. Jobs dried up and people left in droves. The village is mainly inhabited by Tatars, a Turki? group that is one of scores of ethnic minorities in Russia.
