Vladimir Putin and Sergei Shoigu
Finally, someone is talking about cloning ancient warriors.
Russia’s defence minister has taken time out from massing troops on Ukraine’s borders to unveil a ‘Dolly the Sheep’ cloning dream involving ancient royal warriors and their prize horses using DNA preserved in permafrost.
Sergei Shoigu – one of Vladimir Putin’s closest allies – spoke about the potential of the extraordinary 3,000-year-old Scythian burials in Tuva, his mountainous native republic in Siberia.
The ancient Tunnug burial site of nomadic warriors – often laid to rest with their horses – is in an area known as the Valley of the Kings in Tuva.
When Shoigu, 65, initiated the Russian-Swiss archeological digs here three years ago a modern-day shaman was even drafted in by scientists to ensure the excavations did not anger the spirits.
The defence chief told a session of the Russian Geographical Society, also attended remotely by Putin, on Wednesday: ‘Of course, we would like very much to find the organic matter.’
He was referring to well-preserved remains of ancient people and animals, explained TASS.
‘I believe you understand what would follow that,’ said Shoigu in a broadcast by Zvezda TV.
‘It would be possible to make something of it, if not Dolly the Sheep.’
He added, without explaining more of planned genomic research that ‘in general, it will be very interesting’.
I’ve also heard that Russia has Adolf Hitler’s skull.
Can we get some news on that?
Because if Russia isn’t going to use it to clone a new Hitler, I’m sure some other countries would love to do it.
Other races don’t have the same twisted view of Hitler that whites have.
A lot of folks think he was a pretty cool guy – with some pretty darn good ideas.
Wouldn’t it be great if every country had their own Hitler, and it was a war of the Hitlers?
Sort of like when the different Hulks fought each other.
You know New Zealand would end up coming out with a She-Hitler.
