macabre science
Translation, research & text Lygia Cabus
RUSSIA – In April [2010], in the Kamerovo region, in the vicinity of the small town of Senzaskiye Kichi – central Siberia – professional hunter Afanasy Kiskorov, accompanied by other hunters, was fishing in an icy river when the group heard a strong noise of ice breaking. Investigating the source of the noise, they discovered a creature drowning in the cold waters: it was an uncommon being: ...a huge man covered in dark brown pelage.

He was about 10 meters away from the bank and was trying, unsuccessfully, to save himself from imminent drowning. Kiskorov ran to provide rescue him and, finding a tree branch, handed it to the Yeti. He grabbed the rod, hoisted himself to the surface and, arriving at the bank, made his way into the woods.

Senzaskiye Kichi, in fact, is a village, a village, 140 km away from civilization, a place that can only be reached by helicopter.

Authorities of the [Kamerovo] region have repeatedly received reports of Yeti sightings, currently and over the past few years.

In Russia and surrounding countries, appearances of Yetis are so frequent that there is practically no doubt these creatures actually exist.

A 2010 report, from Pravda English from 2010, talks about the miscegenation between humans and Yetis whose descendants live to this day in the village of Tkhina, in the Abkhazian or Republic of Abkhazia.

The case of Abkhazia is quite curious and consists of something more than a simple belief. There, the mixture between species is simply accepted as part of the history of the local population.

According to records, in the not so distant past, in Abkhazia there was a large colony of monkeys near the village of Sukhumi.

There was a time in wich he place more densely inhabited. At its peak, more than 70 thousand apes of different species lived there. Currently, there are only a few hundred. 

But it was not a natural colony; it was adopted and maintained by scientists at the Institute Experimental Pathology and Therapy, in Abkhaz, a still active study center that intends to begin training monkeys in simulated missions to Mars with the partnership of Russian Cosmonautics Academy.

The current 0- [2010] director of the Experimental Institute, in Abkhazia, denies that the colony was created specifically for genetic experiments on crossing humans and monkeys but, reveals archival documents dating back to the 1920s; documents that say sotheing diferent, such as a letter from professor and scientist Ilya Ivanov [1870-1932?], when he requested funds for an expedition to Africa.

Here is an excerpt from the letter: 

From the earliest stages of my scientific research I tried, in my experiments, to promote interbreeding between humans and monkeys. I assume that the Soviet government could help me in the interests of the science of natural history knowledge.
Ilya, the mad scientist and the hybrid
Ilya Ivanov was already working as a researcher on other projects, such as in the Askania reserve, where he carried out artificial insemination by mixing bull genes with those of gazelles or deer. 

However, Ivanov's golden dream has always been to cross men and monkeys [for what this editor/translator/researcher has not understood until now but it cannot be a good thing].

But Ilya Ivanov was not alone with his insane idea. Vladimir Rosanov, famous surgeon who extracted German bullets from Lenin's body, requested 50 monkeys to undergo transplantation experiments of vascular glands [thyroids, spleen, thymus which is a lymphatic organ located in the antero-superior portion of the chest, part of the immune system and adrenal capsules].

The aim was to restore [physically, even] the aging leaders of the Revolution [of 1917]; and starting with Stalin.

Rozanov hoped to repeat the success of his colleague, Sergei Voronov who, immigrating to France in the 19th century, installed in a luxurious palace on the Riviera, transplanted sex glands from monkeys into humans. Voronov had a 90% success rate in rejuvenating the body. This place, at the time, was called Simios Castle.

Rosanov wanted gorillas, baboons and chimpanzees, animals that could only be found in Africa. Ilya Ivanov was appointed to personally go to the Dark Continent to oversee the acquisition of the test subjects.


The Sukhumi Institute [Institute Experimental Pathology and Therapy, mentioned above] also kept in its archives a meeting protocol for the team that prepared to go to Africa.

In the recorded document, Ilya Ivanov's co-workers warned him not to use women from French Guinea for insemination procedures with gorilla semen. Something like this, which seems so obvious today and always so obvious [i.e., inadmissible] was a topic of discussion among those scientists.

The project was awarded a sum of between 15 and 20 thousand dollars [a lot of money, at the time]. The expedition left with its first stop in Paris, in February 1926. 

From there, they went to French Guinea and set up their experimental study station in Kindia [region of that country, name of the capital of this region].

It was an arduous task to capture the chimpanzees: they were intelligent, strong and aggressive. The mmunition with tranquilizing projectiles had not yet been invented and the apes generally won the fight with the men.

The natives had a specific method for catching the animals. They hunted them with dogs, cornering them, forcing them to climb trees. Then, they put fires around the trees of the chosen ones.

Suffocated by the smoke, the animals were forced to descend from trees where a gang of hunters waited for captured them . Even so, hunters were often injured in these confrontations.

Despite the warnings, there are reports that Ilya Ivanov ignored any ethical limits. But just like catching the monkeys, it was difficult to convince women to participate in the experiment of being inseminated with simian semen.

Local tradition considered any initiative in this direction as a cursed thing. Then, was said that there were cases of women who had been kidnapped by gorillas and raped by them. Some, they said, became pregnant.

All victims came to be considered impure and, sooner or later, these women appeared dead.

It was not the first time that mutants, the science of Stalin's horrors, appeared in the newspapers:

In 2005, the newspaper the SKY news channel published:

'Secret Russian documents recently revealed that Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin ordered genetic experiments to be carried out with the aim of creating hybrid beings by crossing humans with monkeys.

Moscow archives from the mid-1920s record the orders received by the Russian expert in animal breeding, Ilya Ivanov, who was to dedicate himself to the creation of a "super-warrior".

Stalin would have told the scientist: 'I want an invincible human being, insensitive to pain, resistant and indifferent to the quality of the food he consumes.

Workers building a playground for children found hidden laboratories and monkey skeletons in the city of Suchimi [Sukhumi], Black Sea region of Georgia. [PRAVDA, 2005]

The same report informs that Ilya Ivanov was a pioneer in his work. Still in the time of the Tsars, in 1901, he created the first artificial insemination center in the world. At that time, his guinea pigs were horses.

Regarding his activities at the research center in French Guinea, Pravda sources report that a scientist, in African lands, arrived at the crime scene, covering up the kidnapping of women to be inseminated with gorilla semen. At the same time, in the Former Soviet Union, a similar center was set up in Georgia, Stalin's homeland.

As in a horror-fiction-cinematic plot, the objective was to create a living war machine. Mutants would be used in the Armed Forces and as submissive labor.

Ape-men should be strong, dexterous, but dull, poorly endowed with intelligence. Ivanov failed in Africa and, back in the Soviet Union, in Georgia, he tried to continue his experiments with female volunteers. Again, he didn't get the expected results.

Soon, he became a useless for the Government. He was costing dearly and give no return. As punishment, Ilya Ivanov was prosecuted by the public authorities, convicted and sentenced to five years in prison. In 1931 the sentence was commuted... for the worse: exile in Kazakhstan.
