Udmurtia to commemorate Grandma

The Russian region of Udmurtia will mark its first annual Grandmother’s Day on May 26 by unveiling a bronze statue of an elderly lady in its capital city Izhevsk.

May 26 will mark one year since a local folk group, Buranovskiye Babushki, or Grandmas, reaped applause in the finals of the 2012 Eurovision song contest.
