This is where the information not pertaining to solving the case i.e. not presenting new facts or interpretation of information related to the case is moved after being featured on the home page. Here you will find mostly public relations, public appearances and commemorations of people involved in some way in the case. The mystery of the cold case has created a universe of its own, and this place holds a small sampling of the attempts to bring light to the unsolved mystery.

Prof. Momchil Panayotov is a member of the Dendrology department of University of Forestry, Sofia, Bulgaria. He agreed to analyze the cores brought back from the forest where the bodies were found. According to the Pavlov-Hadjiyska theory a tree could have caused the accidental death of the Dyatlov group. The objective was to see if the year of death of a tree this old could be determined and to learn more in general about what trees, live or dead could tell us about the time around the tragedy. The reassuring news is that due to the cold climate trees in Ural can be preserved on the ground for centuries and bear witness to events that happened decades ago. Conventional dendrochronology has successfully provided informative evidence for over a century in science and judicial forensics cases. See the video →

Bulgarian On Air show called "Operation History" hosted by Rosen Petrov aired on Jan 29, 2023 about the truth of the "Dyatlov" incident of 1959. What are all the hypotheses for the group's unexplained death and are there any senior leaders of the then USSR involved? The version is by Teodora Hadjiyska, a leading world author and investigator, author of book "1079".

Vladimir Sungorkin died on September 14, 2022. He was the engine behind Komsomolskaya Pravda's involvement in the Dyatlov group case. In his capacity as editor-in-chief, he assigned a journalist, Natalya Varsegova, who for ten years had been not just following but actively investigating the Dyatlov case. Everything we know about Semyon Zolotaryov is thanks to Komsomolskaya Pravda. The question now is if someone will pick up the torch.
The book signing of "1079" in 2022 was very emotional because it took place on the Dyatlov Pass and then at the Dyatlov Foundation. I held the Russian edition in my hands for the first time. It is the pinnacle of the the whole book creation. To my deepest sorrow I had to do it without my co-author and mentor Igor Pavlov.
July 30-August 11, 2022
This rare once in a lifetime expedition is something that I think exists outside of the events of the day and will hopefully advance the knowledge of this fascinating incident for people the world over. It is a milestone in our efforts to uncover all existing details and mysteries about the Dyatlov case.
Don't blame the people living there!
It's like blaming a birch tree for growing in the wrong place.
I also want to know what kind of horror happened there,
what were they doing there, why they stopped breathing under the snow.
I'm pained, but what can we do?
We can only pray to God that no one else perishes there.
God help us!

The Dyatlov group was discovered from the air. Later, a ground check group came to the scene of the accident. This happened at the beginning of February. They found out a tree had fallen on top of the tent. Some of the bodies remained in the tent under the tree and it was obvious that they most likely had severe injuries. Some of the bodies were outside the tent. Not all bodies were found. But the search was not especially thorough...
The new head of the nonexistent foundation is Aleksey Koskin working together with the son of Yuri Kuntsevich, Aleksander. Aleksey Koskin is very well known Dyatlov case researcher and we have to this day most photos because of him. It became apparent that Komsomolskaya Pravda is interested in a crime scenario and desperate to come up with some evidence. Journalist Natalya Varsegova presented a 3D model someone sent her that makes a scrap of a film negative look like a suspicious gathering of people, one even carrying a rifle. She talks about exhumation of all bodies including that of Zolotaryov, for the second time. Teodora Hadjiyska, presented the book "1079", starting with an explanation of the date February 6th on the cover of the case files. The rest of the presenters predominantly spoke of rocket malfunction scenarios.

My "1079" book signing trip ended on Flight 1079. Pilots Oren Barak and Luis Eraso signed my boarding pass, and I signed their books. I don't believe in coincidences. Everything is connected.

"Perhaps the time has come for people to go to the Pass not out of idle curiosity, and not because the Pass became a brand in the media, but because when you leave you became another. So that you can restart your life in the right relationship to the Spiritual world."

"After his death and on the day of Kuntsevich's funeral, many words were said about what a wonderful person he was. If you knew how things would turn out, we, the participants in his last expedition, would have canceled any of our plans and would do everything in our power to save Yuri Konstantinovich."

"It seems to some that this human tragedy, where 9 people died, is just another hyped up and trending topic. There are always a lot of people there, some are taking pictures, some of the enthusiasts are conducting their own investigations." Graham Phillips, journalist

"A huge four-meter sculpture was erected in memory of the students who died there in 1959 at the Dyatlov Pass. The author of the monument is the new wave artist of the Russian avant-garde Grigoriy Emvi (real name Grigoriy Maslennikov)."

"It's not that I had a revelation, but being on the spot where it happen just makes it personal experience, and I have a better understanding why nothing make sense. Pitching the tent where it was found doesn't make any sense. Going down to the cedar tree instead back to the labaz makes perfect sense - you can't go against the wind, it's brutal, you won't make it even to the memorial. We had almost same temperatures and wind that are recorded in the diaries -13°C, -26°C at night and warm south-west wind. I stood in the middle of the night in that exact spot and looked at what Dyatlov group saw. I felt the mighty mountain and the doom of life. But I couldn't understand why..."

June 26, 2019: Activists of the Dyatlov group’s memory fund and his supporters forced the prosecutor’s investigation into the death of Ural hikers to contact the Investigative Committee. Representatives of the supervisory authority stated that they stopped at three versions of what happened in 1959 on the Dyatlov Pass: a hurricane, an avalanche and a snow slab. Most of the activists of the Dyatlov Fund disagree with this - they insist on a “military version”, according to which Dyatlov group became witnesses or victims of weapon tests, after which they were eradicated.

The first expedition on dog sleds to Dyatlov Pass in Northern Ural.
February 19-23, 2016
Mount Kholat Syakhl noticeably rose against the background of the other mountains and was covered with a dense blanket of a swirling giant cloud that hides the flowing lines of the mountain relief beneath. In the boiling foam of this cloud on the background of an absolutely cloudless sky, snow-white whirling foam sparkling in the sun emerged, broken by the wind into shallow icy dust, which descended with terrible force, picked up by the hurricane wind. We have not seen anything like this in our lives!
A place that every extreme traveler must visit. The place, shrouded in unsolved mystery for 55 years! That same cedar and that very stream will freeze blood when you realize what happened on February night of the 59th year.
