The witness showed about the tenth of February 1959 we, ?? and two Anyamovs went hunting on the river. Lozva. Hunted we did not reach the Ural Mountains about 15 km. On the hunt we saw traces of tourists on narrow skis that walked along the river. Lozva. Traces were covered with snow 4-5 cm. The tourists did not meet them and did not hear them. As well as what happened to them I do not know. But during the elections of 1 /III 59 in the village of Burantovo I heard that the tourists were lost, I said that we were on the hunt and on the river. Lozva saw traces of ski tourists.

When we were on the hunt, I saw traces of wolverines and wolves. Wolverines can eat dead deer and humans, but wolves of dead deer do not eat. Where we hunted no moleben mountain is available, and according to the stories of Mansi I know that it is in the upper reaches of the river. See it. And in the upper reaches of the river. Lozvy there is no such mountain. But I know that now and Mansi do not go to pray for the prayer mountain, young people do not pray at all, and old Mansi pray at home. I heard that five tourists found frozen. Why they are frozen to me is unknown. It is written correctly, I have read it.
