This section contains information found by dozens of researchers and scattered across various thematic sites. The materials are systematized and will be supplemented and refined in the future as new information becomes available. The Russian abbreviations database contains what I had to hunt down while translating anything from Russian e.g. case files, news articles and Igor Pavlov's manuscript. I am sure these will come handy while navigating through Russian literature in general. The gallery People contains both past and modern times individuals, you can tell by the photos, all names can be looked up in the WHOIS database. The search on the site will return results from all the pages. If you want to look up a name on the WHOIS table please either use the alphabet index or Ctrl+F.

Born in 1933 in the city of Petrovsk-Zabaikalsk, Chita region into a family of a railroad officer. Father, Nikolay Timofeevich, worked in the Civilian Facilities Division. The Patrushevs were an unsociable family. The parents never went to visit anyone, and never invited anyone themselves. When she was little she wrote poetry, which sometimes was published in newspapers. In 1940 the family moved to Ulan-Ude. Valeriya Nikolaevna studied in the tenth grade, at school teachers advised her to go to study at the Creative Writing Faculty of the Irkutsk University. The father was against it, because he wanted his youngest daughter to become a doctor, like the eldest one, Lucy. After the father had forbidden to goto the university, Valeriya Nikolaevna attempted suicide by taking her mother's medicine, mamofidin, which her elder sister had brought home. The family were secretive about their daughter’s suicide attempt, they said she had been ill with tonsillitis. Later, the oldest sister, Lucy, left the city of Ulan-Ude for the city of Nikolaev, where she worked as the head of the railway pharmacy. Nine months later, her father was transferred to the town of Borisoglebsk, and then to the town of Povorino, Voronezh region. Then the war broke out. The father saw his wife and daughter into a train. But the train was bombed as it left the station. In 1944 the father found them. All documents had been burnt, so when they renewed them, there was a mistake in Valeriya’s date of birth (1935). After the war, Valeriya Nikolaevna and her mother moved to Nikolaev to live with Lucy. There Valeriya Nikolaevna enrolled at the accelerated education department of the Odessa Medical Institute to work on virgin lands. She studied for four years to become a country doctor. In the last year, they were told that they would get the diplomas of a medical assistant-obstetrician. During her studies, she met Gennady Patrushev, a cadet at Nikolaev Air Naval Mine-and-Torpedo School, whom she married in 1956. The marriage was registered by the sister of Valeriya Nikolaevna’s friend, who worked in the village council of the nearest village. In 1957 she moved with her husband to the Urals, where in March 1958 their son Eugene was born. They lived in the village of Aramilskiy torphyanik (6 km from Sverdlovsk along Chelyabinsk tract) together with her mother-in-law and her husband's younger brother Vitaliy 1938-1995. Only at the end of May 1959 did Gennadiy Vasilyevich take his wife and a one-year-old son to Ivdel, where he rented a room in a private house. After her husband’s death, she moved to Sverdlovsk, to a communal apartment not far from Savva Belykh St. (next to the "house of aviators", where many families of pilots from Uktus lived). She moved into a room where the pilot ,who left for Leningrad to study instead of the deceased G. Patrushev, used to live. After some time, the political department evicted her, because she had no legal right to live there. Valeriya Nikolaevna sent her son to live at her mother-in-law, and for some time she lived with her friend, Nadezhda Gladyreva, in the "house of aviators." Later Valeriya Nikolaevna was given an assignment of living quarters . Navigator G. Karpushin became her neighbor. Then the Karpushins moved into a new apartment, and their son Vasiliy Karpushin with his wife Nadezhda and their son Sergei became her neibours. After a while, Valeriya Nikolaevna married Valeriy Gamatin, who was introduced to her by Vitaly, brother of Gennady Patrushev. They had a son Pavel (later, a military man, served in Afghanistan).

He sang in the choir of the House of Culture in Lermontov. At the same time, he worked as a tourism instructor (seasonal work in sports camps "Iskr", "Medic", "Trud" (Pyatigorsk), 1951-52; under control of the City Committee for Physical Education and Sport (Pyatigorsk), summer 1952; a guest instructor at the camp site (Pyatigorsk), 6 months in 1953; instructor in schools, institutes (Pyatigorsk?

Unconfirmed reports indicate that V.P. Krikunov refused to give him a leave to participate in winter hiking, although Zolotaryov, as the owner of the USSR Mountaineer badge, according to the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR of Nov 3, 1951, №4359 had the right to leave without pay for up to 3 months to work in alpine camps. Therefore, Zolotaryov quit school and in the summer of 1958 left for Altai, (the graduates of the Lermontov school met him in Novosibirsk on Sep 1, 1958, presumably he was on his way from Biysk to Sverdlovsk). From the archival documents of the primary party organization of the school it follows that "the communist Zolotaryov S.A. was systematically dishonest about his work at school, he was rude to the chairman of the City Executive Committee comrade Barakov. Comrade Zolotaryov was fired from his job in May. Until now, he is on the party account in the school party organization. Although he works in Pyatigorsk, in a tour-base.

In October 1958 started work as a senior instructor at the Kourovskaya campsite (Sverdlovsk region). Perhaps he was transferred to Kourovka because in 1958 a new all-union route from Kourovka along the Chusovaya river was opened and the place became more promising. It is conceivable that Zolotaryov worked at campsites where foreign tourists were sent, because he could speak foreign languages. He might have been involved in KGB work (surveillance of foreign tourists). In 1958 the Bureau of International Tourism under the Committee of Youth Organizations of the USSR "Sputnik" starts operating, which, together with the Central Council for Tourism of the All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions, organized tours for foreign tourists; previously, only "Intourist" dealt with this (since 1955). Several camps and sports tourism routes were created for foreigners in the Caucasus (Pyatigorsk), Elbrus, Altai. The report of Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute hikers concerning August 1958 mentioned presence of German hikers on the camp site in Chemal (not far from Artybash). Zolotaryov worked in Pyatigorsk, Elbrus, and Altai. Unconfirmed reports indicate that by the beginning of the Dyatlov group hike, he had been sacked from the Kourovskaya camp site because he had had an argument with the director. Zolotaryov might have had an affair with her, but had been seen with another woman (according to official data: Pershina Zoya Mihaylovna became the first woman director of the Kourovka tourist base in 1973; so that means he could not have had an affair with a director in 1959). Apparently, S. Zolotaryov had an affair with a woman from the neighboring village of Sloboda, where he lived. He went on a hike, while on vacation. First, he was going to join S. Sogrin's group for a hike; in 1959 he was living for a short time in Sogrin's apartment in Sverdlovsk. He went on a hike of 3rd category to get certified for the next sports title (master category in tourism), which he needed for career growth in the field of planned tourism. To fulfill the standards for the title of master of sports in tourism according to the Unified All-Union Sports Classification at that time it was necessary to do 12 long-distance hikes with a total length of about 3000 km through four geographic regions; also the tourist had to practise at least three types of tourism. That might be the reason why Zolotaryov travelled that a lot. By 1959, he had had 14 1-2 category hikes in the Caucasus; 10 hikes of 1-2 category. in the Carpathians (4 ski hikes in total). Badges: RLD (Ready for labor and defense) class 2; "Tourist of the USSR" 1951; "Mountaineer of the USSR" 1957. Judge categories: 1st - in athletics; 2nd- in sports games; 3rd -in ski sports, swimming, shooting sports. Sports categories: 2nd - in shooting, skiing; 3rd - in athletics; 2nd category in mountain tourism 1953. Perished on February 1-2-1959.
