National Geographic Russia in June

The June issue of National Geographic Russia is out now. Inside, readers will find articles on:

The Market in Ancient Relics – People have been plundering tombs since the time of the pharaohs, and the looting and selling of antiquities continues today in Egypt, Syria, Cambodia and other countries. Does this illicit trade help save archeological treasures from destruction? Or does this business only encourage looting?

Tiger Sharks – To learn about tiger sharks, a novice diver took the plunge in a location known as Tiger Beach off the coast of the Bahamas. Here, as its name promises, there are more tiger sharks than anywhere else. Readers will learn about what he encountered there in this, the first of a series of articles titled “Summer with the Sharks.” The series continues in upcoming issues.

Yakut Delicacies ¬– Where else but in Yakutia can you find fresh frozen foods made from horse meat, deer, berries and cream – not to mention the royal delicacy known as stroganina?

Putorana: The Great Migration – Every year in the northern stretches of Central Siberia, Taimyr wild reindeer trek over 3,000 kilometers – in the summer to escape bloodthirsty insects, and in the winter to escape starvation.

The magazine went on sale May 27.
