In 1901, 40 Doukhobor exiles from the Caucasus were permitted to settle on the River Amga in the Amga district of Yakutsk province (present-day Sakha-Yakutia Republic), Russia. There, they established the village of Otradnoye (Отрадное), meaning “place of rejoicing” in Russian and began a new life. The Doukhobors individually cleared and cultivated large parcels of land. The village was abandoned in 1905 when the exiles were pardoned and allowed to join their brethren in Canada. [60° 47' 20” N - 131° 45' 32” E]
