Anna, Askinadzi is against criminal version, he told me so. Please refrain from posting anything that is slightly referring to your book or version. I am serious.
In general, I will not ask Askinadzi what he thinks happened. He doesn't know what happened.
His recollections are good for facts, not speculations. Read his interview by Maya Piskareva, he says several times that he will not hypothesize.
I have to make a confession. I never discussed with Askinadzi what theory does he believe in. When I wrote the above I meant what he wrote to Piskareva in 2012
: "No one hit them on the head. No-one!! If someone were an outsider who allegedly hit humble 20-year-old strong guys on the head, then he (or they) should have hit not just one, but everyone. This means there should be as many of these hitters as there were guys (7 people), or there were no one and you should look somewhere else. Look for it!!!"
Then two years later Askinadzi says in an interview to Komsomolskaya Pravda
: "I thought a lot about this and came to the conclusion that no spontaneous force could kill the nine healthy and fit guys. They could not just freeze in those conditions. Well, again, these inexplicable injuries. Don’t ask me, I don’t know who or why were they murdered. But this seems to me the only explanation of their death."
Then Anna Pusskyh pointed out that he proclaims to support murder. This seems to be the case although Askinadzi says in 2020 (p. 1-3)
: "MURDER!!!! Whether it was premeditated or a manslaughter is another question."
You can see the gentle curve. Askinadzi can not find other explanation for the trauma. What is there is an explanation?
I presented Askinadzi with some questions to see how he will react, and the result is not good. To the questions Anna Russkyh sent me e.g.
Question from Anna Russkyh: Did Vladimir Mihaylovich have to talk with Eshtokin or Kirilenko or anyone from the Sverdlovsk Regional Committee?
Sergey Sogrin said that Eshtokin (Kirilenko’s deputy) was in Ivdel during the search, monitored the progress of the search and talked with the searchers. I asked Sogrin what they talked about with Eshtokin? Sogrin did not answer.
Askinadzi: Анну Васильевну («Русских») всё ещё не отпускают фантомные боли от высшей советской бюрократии!
Anna Vasilyevna ("Russkyh") is still haunted by phantom pains from the highest Soviet bureaucracy!
To Anna Russkyh: I included your questions and answers to Askinadzi in my last post
. Please do not include screenshots of Russian text. The majority won't understand a thing, they can not translate, and the red is not helping since it makes it look important while you only want to point what are you referring to. Copy/paste the text with the link instead.
Askinadzi won't answer this question either.
Was there any one thing you noticed that puzzled you, that you still think about?
How about: After all these years, what remains the most troubling detail of your experience on the Dyatlov Pass?
To the rest of the questions I tried Askinadzi answered:
Please block the stupid questions. Will it bring us closer to solving the root problem? Or we’ll go in circles, we’ll stomp around, and, forgetting why we stopped, we’ll stomp on further. All the questions go around in circles.
Пожалуйста, блокируйте сами дурные вопросы. Приблизит к решению коренного вопроса? Или опять потопчемся на одном месте, потопчемся, и, забыв зачем останавливались, потопаем дальше. Все вопросы ходят кругами.
Please read all the interviews that I have published so far and get smarter. Askinadzi feels that he has information for us only if we can ask the right questions.
I have more information coming, the mother lode. 10 years of correspondence between Askinadzi an Galina Sazonova. As you can see I am a little busy.
