Grave of Ataman Yermak Probably Found in Bashkiria
Yermak Timofeyevich

Regional historians have found in the Miyakinsky Region of Bashkiria a grave, in which the legendary Cossack ataman Yermak Timofeyevich was buried, as scientists assume. According to results of the first examination, the date of the burial coincides with the time of the commanders death.
      A number of additional independent examinations is required before making final conclusions. One of them will be carried out in St. Petersburg in summer. If all the tests and examinations confirm the assumptions of scientists, it will become a historic fact.
      Yermak Timofeyevich (died in 1585) was a famous Cossack ataman, the leader of the campaign to Siberia, who started the annexation of Siberia to Russia.
