Decembrist and Polish exiles made substantial contributions to the development of culture and education in Zauralye.[12] The cooperative movement was widespread at the beginning of the 20th century, and thanks to Trans-Ural oil manufacturers, Russia became the world's second-largest exporter of butter.
