Mythic Russia: Today’s News, Tomorrow’s Adventure
THE SIBIRYAK COLUMBUS
Russian scientist says America was discovered by Siberians

Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, September 22 (Interfax) – Scientists have said that the first settlers on Sakhalin, the Russian island in the North Pacific, appeared 100,000-200,000 years ago.
“During the excavation work at the Sennaya station in the Dolinsky district [southern Sakhalin], our colleagues from the Sakhalin State University found interesting data which do not rule out that the initial settlement of Sakhalin occurred quite early – over 100,000-200,000 years ago,” Anatoly Derevyanko, director of the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography, said at a three-day international scientific conference which ended on Wednesday in Sakhalin.
Another scientific fact is that the earliest settlers of America came from Siberia through the current Far East region, the scientist said.
“This is no longer a hypothesis but a scientific fact: America was discovered not by Columbus but by Siberian people. But here two points of view exist among the scientists. Some are saying this happened 13,000-14,000 years ago, others 20,000-25,000 years ago,” he said.
What if the Sibiryaks had indeed found such a route, perhaps by befriending or taming the Shape they call Sunrise Sea (which we would call the Baring Straits)? Maybe the Shape Ice is able to defeat Sunrise Sea and so the Sibiryaks sail across on great ice floes, pushed by whales?
Pyramids Older Than Egyptian Allegedly Found in Ukraine

Archaeologists in Ukraine have unearthed the remains of an ancient
pyramidal structure that pre-dates those in Egypt by at least 300
years. The stone foundations of the structure, which probably
resembled Aztec and Mayan ziggurats in South America, were discovered
near the eastern city of Lugansk.
It is thought they were laid about five millennia ago during the
early Bronze Age by animists who worshipped a sun god. The “pyramid”
is in fact a complex of temples and sacrificial altars topping a
sculpted hillside with steps on its sides.
Viktor Klochko, head of the excavation, said the discovery was of
international significance. “This is the first monument of its age
and kind found in eastern Europe,” he told the Guardian. “It changes
our whole conception of the social structure and the level of
development of the cattle breeders and farmers who were the direct
ancestors of most European peoples.”
There are about 100 pyramids in Egypt, and the remains of
Mesopotamian pyramids are preserved in Iraq and Iran. Ziggurats are
also found in Mexico, and the Nubians built pyramids as burial sites
for monarchs in the Nile valley. But pyramid structures are rare in
Europe. One of the few is a Roman-era pyramid near Nice, France, that
may have been built by legionnaires involved in an Egyptian cult.
Although graves have been found at the Lugansk site, archaeologists
think it was used for sacrifice by burning, rather than as a burial
ground. “People lived in the surrounding valleys and climbed up it to
carry out their ceremonies,” said Mr Klochko. “They had a pagan cult
that bowed down to the sun, as did the ancestors of the Slavs.”
Remains of sacrifice victims, ashes and ceramics have been found at
the site, but no jewellery or treasure. The complex, which covered
three-quarters of a square mile and was around 60 metres (192ft)
high, was probably used for 2,000 years.
“What surprised me most is the scale of this enormous complex,”
Stanislav Mogilny, a student working on the excavation, told Russian
television. It’s just incredible — a titanic feat.”
A rediscovered pagan site to Khors which becomes the focus for a struggle between faiths? Or perhaps the pyramids were consecrated to an older, darker sun deity, whose faith is being covertly revived through blood sacrifices and subtle conspiracy? Or maybe this is just a place where the veil has worn thin and part of an Otherworlds is now becoming manifest in the mortal realm?
