Speaking in the capital Kyzyl on 1 July, translator of the Bible into Tuvan Vitali Voinov said that Pastor Aleksandr Degtyarev of his Gospel Light Baptist Church always reported the occasional but serious incidents, but police officers were indifferent: "For them it is minor - they have too many murders to solve."
While the inhabitants of Kara-Khaak, 20km [12 miles] north of Kyzyl, threatened and drove away church members after a local Buddhist lama told them that the high mortality and illness in their settlement were due to the spread of Christianity there, Voinov told Forum 18 that violence was not usually led by Buddhist leaders.
