Dyatlov Group News
Dyatlov Group News is a mock newspaper made by the member of the
Dyatlov Group. Diary was found in the abandoned tent on the side
of the mountain. The original copy was thrown out, but its typed
version was preserved as part of the criminal investigation into
the Dyatlov Pass Incident case.

full official investigation.
These guys lived at the time
when every city, village and even many factories had their own
newspapers. These were published by the officials to discuss
advantages of living in the USSR, bash religio and superstition,
distinguish valuable members of the Soviet society and many other
reasons. So it is not suprising that members of the Dyatlov Group
wrote their own form of a newspaper. Unlike official newspapers at
the time their newspaper was a mocking one. In here they recorded
various events, conversations or other notable things that happened
to them during their trip. In a sense it was an inside joke. For an
outsider these "announcements" were silly and somewhat childish. But
for the members of the group they meant something else. It was a way
to preserve a memory years later. So these types of newspapers were
fairly common among the tourists at the time of the Dyatlov Pass

Can one stove and one blanket warm 9 tourists?
In recent years, the scientific community is a lively debate about
the existence of a Bigfoot. According to recent reports, yeti lives
in the Northern Urals, near Otorten mountain.
Good while riding on the train, by car and on horseback. For cargo
transportation on snow is not recommended.

A team of radio technicians comrade Doroshenko and comrade
Kolmogorova set a new world record in the competition for the
assembly of the stove in just 1 hour 02 minutes 27.4 seconds.
The part about Bigfoot is particularly interesting.
In the 90's some Russian journalist decided to make the story even more
sensational, as if it wasn't sensational enough. So he changed few
facts here and there and made a claim that Dyatlov Group Diary had a
passage "now we know Bigfoot exists" or "now we believe in the
existance of a Bigfoot". This claim is fake. If anyone is willing to
show us first hand document that supports this claim we will be
happy to include it in the article. However no documents in the
official criminal investigation supports this idea. On more theories
you can read it in a Dyatlov
Pass Incident Theory Section.
Another "proof" for Yeti Attack theory is so
called photo of Yeti. This picture is real, blurry and very hard to
distinguish. Basically just like most of the Bigfoot pictures. These
creatures are not very photogenic. Below as the last three pictures
taken from a film 3 from the
Dyatlov Pass abandoned tent. The very last picture is usually the
one that is questioned as a proof of the Yeti attack. But even a
brief glance prooves that it is just Nikolai goofing off in the
However several eyewitnesses do mention that the
Mansi hunters who helped in the search and rescue party did complain
Menkvi attacks on their carinou herds.
These big hairy and incredibly smelly animals were quiet frequent in
the area at the time of the tragic deaths, but there is no direct
link that ties these two events together.
