We dug up all the orders for 1959 and each one looks the same. Notice that the sappers are sent to the pass "on the basis of the telephone message of military unit 01662", i.e. telephone messages of the brigade, the higher management of a large formation. This was not the initiative of the commander of military unit 24594 himself, he was ordered from above. Look at the date... I believe that we actually found a smoking gun. Firstly, the very fact that Shestopalov is investigating something at the pass, and secondly... February again. Will they say again "well, this must be another mistake".
And here is the image:

Indeed the date at the end is 14.II.59g.

But just above that, isn't "s 14 Marta" written? That is, 14th of March?
Is this a coincidence or is 14.II. indeed a mistake?


Update: translated image:

(note the translation algorithm has mistaken II. for П = P)

According to his Whois entry, Shestopalov was "on work trips to Ivdel from March 2 to March 13, 1959; March 18-23, 1959; from March 31 to April 30, 1959," those work trips being the search (in the radio grams, "The officers named below shall be deemed to have departed on a business trip.")

I think the 14.11 is a misdate, personally but I don't discount much of anything with this case!  Either way, excellent question!!

Lieutenant Colonel M.F. Shestopalov in Ivdel from Mar 2 to Mar 15, 1959. It seems he was flitting back and forth. That reference to February is probably not significant. Also, its not unusual for the Military to be involved in 'Rescue Operations', we have seen it many times around the World.
