Subject: Pravda on KrioRus

From Pravda:
The first cryonic storage facility has been recently opened in the village
of Alabychevo, near the town of Solnechnogorsk, some 50 km Northwest of
Moscow. The facility is expected to store frozen brains of those who wished
to be immortal.
At the moment the specialists at KrioRus storage in Alabyshevo are dealing
with two customers.

The village isn't given on Google Maps http://maps.google.com but it may he
somewhere here:


Information about the first customer is pretty scarce. He was a man, aged 60
or 70. He died of prostate cancer. His son, a businessman, decided to freeze
the father's brain. The son reportedly holds dual citizenship (Russian and
Swiss), he dreams of preserving his body too so that his father and he may
revive together.

The other customer is a woman, called Lydia Fedorenko, a math teacher from
St. Petersburg . She was 79 years old at the time of death. Her grandson,
Daniil Fedorenko, a researcher at the Institute of Exact Mechanics and
Optics, decided to preserve her brain for further revival.

where there are also some interesting links off.

It is interesting to note that Russia has a long history of interest in
similar ideas.

There is NF Ferdorov or Fyodorov. http://www.venturist.org/fyodorov.htm

and of course the Communists' attempt to store the body of VI Lenin. I am
not sure whether this continues or has been ceased.

The communists' conventionally negative view of cryonics as expressed by
Boris Belizsky and Vladimir Pozner on Radio Moscow was recorded in the 1980s
and will be made available at some future date.
