This is about accurate (no hi-res maps, not sure about the street):

The Fedorov society today is supportive of cryonics. I expect to give a  
talk to them about KrioRus in 1 week (on 27.05). We would be glad to  
arrange a group contract with Fedorov society members.

There was even a plan to suspend him cryogenically, however, it could not  
be carried out for technical and logistical reasons.

The body is still in the Mausoleum and will probably be there for the  
foreseable future. The brain is stored in the Brain Institute and we would  
like to find out whether there is a remote possibility that it may be  
revived. This direction could/will be further pursued
in the future.

It's not a communist view, really. It's just that there was little done to  
implement the idea practically, no ideologically problems about that...

P.S. How can I subscribe to the list to get single messages, not digest? I  
tried the subscription method listed on the cryonet.org site, but the  
mailto link didn't work.
