We found that 10 metal-poor globular clusters are greately distinguished for anomalously small masses on the " destruction rate–mass " plain. As it turned out, these poor clusters, situated 15 kpc farther from the Galactic centre, are somewhat younger than the bulk of the metal-poor globulars, and have anomalously red horizontal branches.
