The witness showed: I clarify the essence of the questions. In early February 1959, we, i.e. I, Anyamov Andrey, and also Anyamov, too, Andrew went on a hunt. We hunted for 9 days in the forest on the hunt saw traces of narrow skis, which were covered with snow, see 15. and in the forest less. We thought that some kind of expedition went to the mountains. Traces have been seen along the river. Auspia in the 10th of February 1959. When they came home they said that they saw traces of skiers. The tourists themselves have not seen anywhere, and have not heard. During the hunt, there was good weather, but more bad, it was windy and cold. Numbers 23-24.02-59, we were sent to look for tourists and we went together with the Russians. When we found 4 tourists frozen. Why and how it happened with the tourists, I just do not understand how this could have happened. The tent was found with us on the mountain, in which were the things of tourists. I took 8 days in the search for tourists. We understand among the Mansi sk-ko, I did not have such a case that anyone died in the mountains of the Urals. That I did not know before. No other people who we would
did not know in those areas is not available. There are no savages in our region. And Mansi did not meet anyone. If they were we would have known. We learned that tourists were lost after the 20th of February 1959. I can not add anything else. Recorded correctly, I read. Anyamov (signature)
