Dyatlov Pass incident vs. Chivruay tragedy 13-04-2020 Why compare incidents that have nothing in common? The Dyatlov Pass incident opens the door for a lot of speculation. If I could discover so much while not believing they are related in any way, then imagine what a blast the media would have. Nor is Chivruay Pass the only one, Hamar-Daban follows on its heels. The renaissance of interest garnered by the Dyatlov Pass incident is now expanding to cover multiple deaths in the mountains under mysterious - or not so mysterious - circumstances. The mystery for many begins by wondering why would anyone venture there in first place. Personally, I enjoyed this research immensely. The Chivruay Pass incident is interesting on its own, and doesn't need the overshadowing mystery of the Dyatlov case. Chivruay 1973. How it really happened. 14-04-2018 These are the recollections of Dr. Vladimir Borzenkov, a member of the search party in 1973. He is also an avid Dyatlov group case researcher, so his insight about the similarities between the two incidents is indispensable. Chivruay left them forever young 30-05-2018 Dyatlov Pass search and rescue operation was unprecedented and was surpassed only years later after the Chivruay tragedy on January 23, 1973. The Chivruay tragedy was compared to the tragedy that occurred with students of the Ural Polytechnic Institute under the leadership of Igor Dyatlov in February 1959 in the Northern Urals. A connection was found between the death of the Dyatlov group and the tragedy on the Chivruay Pass 29-03-2020 The mystery of the Chivruay Pass haunts for many years the relatives of climbers who died in 1973 under mysterious circumstances. 46 years ago, the dead bodies of ten students of the Kuibyshev Aviation Institute were found on the Kola Peninsula. Their faces froze into a horror mask. The investigation ruled the cause of their death to be hypothermia. Buryatia Dyatlov Pass 14-04-2018 There were seven of them: three girls, three young men from the Petropavlovsk Azimut tourclub, and their 41-year-old group leader, master of sports in hiking. The group set off on a designated route of category IV difficulty to Hamar-Daban. Only one of them returned... Barnaul skiers tragic death 14-04-2018 On January 28-29, 10 corpses were found in the area of the Pavlovsky tract. This is how the indictment begins in the case of the death of a group of Komsomol skiers in the vicinity of Barnaul in 1946. Another tragedy with many parallels with the Dyatlov group incident, although the situations seem to be different. More than 10 years later, by 1959, the attitude of those in charge had practically not changed. Watches in the Dyatlov group 30-04-2020 The times on the watches found on the bodies are so close that researchers started experimenting with manual wind watches put in similar conditions and they found a correlation between the time a person freezes to death and when the watch on their wrist stops working. We are talking to Dr. Vladimir Borzenkov. Injuries, clothing and belongings to Dyatlov group 30-04-2020 Thanks to the Russian forums where most of the information about the Dyatlov Pass incident is, albeit scattered on hundreds of sites and thousands of posts, I found a schematics of Dyatlov group injuries, clothing and belongings that seem to portray more coherently the state in which the bodies were found. You know the saying - a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is a living example, sadly applied to the dead. G. K. Grigoriev "Snowstorm in the Mountains" - 1 30-05-2018 "The North Urals is not only rich, beautiful, but also treacherous. In the mountains, especially in winter, there are such storms and snowfalls that the slightest mistake can cost a life. This is what happened in the first days of February 1959 to the Dyatlov group, 9 students of UPI and engineers. It happened between the height 1075 and Otorten. The ultimate goal of their trip was Otorten. The height of this mountain is 1182 meters and it is almost on the 62 parallel, 250 km from Ivdel in the north. I took part in the search of the group. We found only bodies and their belongings." G. K. Grigoriev G. K. Grigoriev "Snowstorm in the Mountains" - 2 30-05-2018 "Far in the sky, against the background of bright clouds, one dot appeared, then the second - they were helicopters returning from the pass. Then these wonderful machines frightening, ugly, one after another raising a whole snowstorm around them, sat on the airfield. All the guys admire the work of the pilots. They are heroes." G. K. Grigoriev G. K. Grigoriev "Snowstorm in the Mountains" - 3 30-05-2018 "We silently stood by the large old cedar, where a few days ago were found two corpses. A breeze blew, the cedar mysteriously rustled. I listened to his noise for a long time, as if trying to understand what he was whispering about. Around the cedar, tall crooked birches. Boughs were cut from the cedar. Some are found far away. They were blown away by the wind. Some cuts are made on a birch with a knife, but not all the way through. On the corpses, they told us, were charred white woolen socks. Eye sockets are filled with snow, their heads were over blown with snow. I imagined, listening to the whisper from the cedar, how Krivonischenko and Doroshenko died here." G. K. Grigoriev Hiking experience of Dyatlov group 25-12-2019 The members of Dyatlov group were experienced, seasoned hikers. They knew what they were doing, and although the equipment, maps, skis and provisions for the harsh winter mountains were not up to the modern standards, the group was prepared and doing just fine. Until the moment they were not. All statements testify to the fact that this trek should not be much different from any preceding one, and certainly not so life threatening. Something must have gone terribly wrong. Trek categories and sports ranks 14-04-2018 The fateful expedition of Dyatlov group was of the highest category of difficulty. What does it mean? Were the hikers qualified and experienced for this trek? Have you noticed the badges on Krivonischenko's photo? Let Them Talk, Dmitriy Borisov 02/12/2019 02-11-2019 “I know the secret of the Dyatlov pass.” This episode includes what role might Zolotaryov play in Dyatlov Pass incident, Mansi participation in the case and the avalanche prosecutors went to investigate on the pass. There is a twist of psychic insight at the end. In the studio is a man who is claiming that for many years he kept the secret of the Mansi shamans. What role could Semyon Zolotaryov play in the deaths of the Dyatlov group. He was much older than the rest of the hikers. During his exhumation in the grave was found a person who is not Semyon Zolotaryov. How can modern technology help solve the mystery of Dyatlov Pass incident. "In a country of mysterious signs" 28-11-2019 This is an overview of the testimonies of Mansi. They are contradictory to each other, and don't add up. The impression is that there are big gaps in between, and then something else is said, not bearing out previous testimony. Let's go over the testimonies of Mansi in 1959. Russian channel 1, Andrey Malahov 04/16/2013 - Part 1 02-11-2019 Russian channel 1 film crew with host Andrey Malahov together with correspondents from Komsomolskaya Pravda lived for a week on Dyatlov Pass. To this day there are 64 theories of what might have happened in February 1959. This episode features love quarrel, criminal versions of Mansi and escapees from the gulag, UFO and Yeti theories. #Orange 13-04-2018 In this infamous case there is a persistent talk about brown-red or orange discoloration of the of skin of the victims and their clothes. Lets track this claims to their origin, and see what they amount to. The day Russia nuked itself: The Kyshtym disaster 28-09-2019 The Kyshtym disaster was a radioactive contamination accident that occurred on 29 September 1957 at Mayak, a plutonium production site for nuclear weapons and nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in the Soviet Union. It measured as a Level 6 disaster on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), making it the third most serious nuclear accident ever recorded, behind the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and the Chernobyl disaster (both Level 7 on the INES). Bomb huggers 28-09-2019 This overview of by Galina Sazonova of the cold war and arm race times in which the Kyshtym disaster happened explains in objective and informative way what led to the accident. Sure negligence, shortsightedness and lack of respect for human life were main causes, but how did the events unfold. This we only know from the Los Alamos report to the CIA. Russian Federation is still secretive about the specifics of the catastrophe. Still, there were more than one player on the playground. And the toys were human life and the environment. Krivonischenko letter to Dyatlov 09-02-2020 «Hello everyone!»

Happy New Year, hiking friends!
Let me wish you
Camping in faraway mountains
Ascending summits in the wild.

Let your backpacks be light,
weather always fine,
winter not too cold,
and summer to be mild.
Interview with Konstantin Krivonischenko 14-04-2018 To many researchers of this tragedy, Yuri Krivonischenko seems to be a rather mysterious person. It is known that he worked at the Mayak secret nuclear enterprise. It is believed that he was a KGB recruit. Yuri’s clothes turned out to be radioactive. For some reason, Yuri Krivonischenko, as well as another victim - Semyon Zolotaryov, was buried separately from other hikers in a prestigious and already closed city cemetery. Interview Navig with Irina Rashevskaya (Doroshenko) 14-04-2018 I think that there were tests of new weapons and something went south. They were caught at the wrong place at the wrong time. Namely, it is connected with military equipment. No doubt about it. Nothing else. Avalanche is nonsense... The color of their skin confirms it... I just heard what my mother said - orange. Interview M.P. with Irina Rashevskaya (Doroshenko) 14-04-2018 Yuri Doroshenko was born on January 29, 1938. He was born, grew up, studied, graduated from high school, entered the Institute of Radio Engineering, became interested in ski hiking, like almost all his fellow students of those years, went on an expedition and died. On that trek, a few days before his death, he turned 21. What do we know about him? Almost nothing. Irina Rashevskaya (Doroshenko) letter 14-04-2018 I remember that she was telling and showing a sweatshirt and a sweater, both ruined. Tinted with orange powder. It seems all the dead were orange. My brother Volodya studied in UPI at this time. He met with relatives of the victims and reported all the versions to my mother. Then the relatives were told not to go there anymore. To drop it. No one will tell them anything. Lyudmila Dubinina's premonition of her tragic death 09-04-2019 What was tormenting Lyuda's mind in the days before the tragedy, was she feeling the impending doom or was she just a troubled soul? The entries in her diaries raise many questions, and the coincidences make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Interview with Igor Aleksandrovich Dubinin, Lyuda's brother 09-04-2019 Conversation between "Center of civil investigation of the tragedy of Dyatlov group" and Igor Alexandrovich Dubinin regarding Dyatlov case 07 Aug 2008, Berezovskiy, Sverdlovsk region "Experts can not be blamed for anything!" 14-04-2018 Interview by Maya Piskareva with Igor Olegovich Makushkin, the son of the same expert on Dyatlov case - Genrietta Eliseevna Churkina who examined the tent and was present at the autopsies of the last 4 bodies found in May 1959. Her son became forensic expert in the same Sverdlovsk forensic research laboratory, and he is now a Professor of Forensic Science. His mother was confiding in him as a colleague, but on his opinion there were secrets that she took with her.
