I commend them for wanting to give the kids the best, even if I don't agree with the method.
I don't know about cloud cover in Ufa, but it is rare for places in mid-continent, not adjacent to any major body of water (I exclude rivers here) such as Ufa to have a lot of cloud cover at any time of year. I don't know about the frequency of rain or snow in Ufa, but I do not know that precipitation is generally sparse throughout continental Russia. It would seem to be a real anomaly if Ufa had the same kind of cloud cover you find in Vancouver or Seattle.
