Most likely, this is a misunderstanding. After all, according to the legends of the north Russia, this people went to live in the dungeon more than a thousand years ago. However, in Karelia and in the Urals, one can still hear stories today. eyewitnesses about meeting with representatives of the miracle. About one of these the meetings were told to us by the famous ethnographer of Karelia, vice president Karelian regional public organization “Rasea” Alexey POPOV. – Alexei, how plausible is the history of existence miracles of this mythical people? – Of course, a chud existed in fact, and then left. But here where – it is precisely not known. Ancient legends claim to be underground. Moreover, no matter how surprisingly, there is mention of this people even in the “Tale” the temporary years of “Nestor:” … the Varangians from overseas levied a tribute to the chud, Sloven, Meru and Krivichi, and the Khazars – from the glades, northerners, Vyatichi took tribute on a silver coin and a fan (squirrel) from smoke. “Also from chronicles it is known that in 1030 Yaroslav the Wise made a trip on a miracle “and defeated them, and set the city of Yuryev.” Today is one of The largest cities in modern Estonia are Tartu. At the same time on the territory of Russia there are a huge number of toponymic names reminiscent of the mysterious once lived here people, only the people themselves do not exist, as if there weren’t never. – What did the chud look like? – According to most scholars, ethnographers and historians, these were creatures that looked very much like European gnomes. They lived on the territory of Russia until the ancestors of the Slavs came here and Finno-Ugric peoples. In the modern Urals, for example, they still exist legends about unexpected helpers of people – white-eyed short creatures that appear from nowhere and help travelers, lost in the forests of the Perm Territory. – You said the chud left underground … – If we summarize numerous traditions, then it turns out that the chud descended into the dugouts, which she herself dug in the ground, and then heaped up all the entrances. True, dugouts could well to be entrances to the caves. So, it’s in underground caves and this mythical people hid. At the same time, completely break with the external by the world they most likely failed. So, for example, in the north Komi-Permyatsky district, in the region of Gayn, according to researchers and hunters, you can still find unusual bottomless wells, filled with water. Locals believe that these are the wells of the ancients people leading to the underworld. They do not take water from them never.

“And are there also known places where a chud went underground?” – Nobody knows the exact places today, only numerous versions according to which such places are located in the north of Russia or on Ural. Interestingly, the epics of Komi and Sami are the same talk about the departure of the “small people” in the dungeon. If you believe ancient legends, the chud went to live in earthen holes in the forests, hiding from the Christianization of those places. Still in the north countries and in the Urals there are earthen hills and barrows, called the miracle graves. They allegedly contain “sworn” miracle treasures. He was very interested in the legends of the miracles of N. K. Roerich. In his to the book “Heart of Asia” he directly tells how one old believer showed him a rocky hill with the words: “Here and went underground alright It was when the White Tsar came to Altai to fight, but not she wanted to live under the White Tsar. Chudi went underground and overwhelmed stone walkways … “However, as N.K. claimed in his book Roerich, a chud must return to earth when some teachers come from Belovodye and will bring great science to mankind. Supposedly then Chud will come out of the dungeons along with all his treasures. The great traveler even dedicated the picture “Miracle under the earth has left. “- And perhaps by a miracle they understood any other a nation whose descendants now live safely in Russia? – There is such a version. Indeed, the legends of Chudy most popular just in the places of settlement of the Finno-Ugric peoples, which include Permian Komi. But! There is one inconsistency: the descendants of the Finno-Ugric peoples themselves always talked about miracles as about some other people. – Legends, some legends … But there are real monuments left by a miracle, which can be hands touch? – Of course have! This, for example, is well known Mount Sekirnaya (local historians still call it Chudova Gora) on Solovetsky archipelago. Its very existence is amazing, because the glacier, passing these places, cut off like a sharp knife, all the bumps in the landscape – and there simply cannot be big mountains here! So the 100 meter Miracle Mountain looks on this surface as a clearly man-made object some ancient civilization. In the early 2000s, scientists exploring the mountain, confirmed that in part it has a glacial origin, and partially artificial – large boulders, from which it consists of, is not laid randomly, but in a certain okay.

– And what, the creation of this mountain is attributed to just miracles? —Archeologists have long established that the Solovetsky Archipelago centuries before the monks came here belonged to local residents. IN Novgorod they were called a miracle, the neighbors called “sikirtya”. Word curious, because translated from the ancient local dialects “schrt” – This is the name of a large long embankment of an elongated shape. So stack elongated hay is directly called “sird”. Obviously, and ancient people neighbors called sykirta for their life in “bulk hills “- houses built from improvised means: moss, branches, stones. The ancient Novgorodians confirm this version – in their in the chronicles they note that sykirta live in caves and do not know gland. – You mentioned mysterious meetings with a miracle in Karelia and in the Urals these days. Are they real? – To be honest, I, knowing many such stories, he always treated them with a fair amount of share of skepticism. Until the end of the summer of 2012, a case occurred made me believe in a real existence in the mountains or under the land of this mythical people. Here is how it was. At the end of august me I received a letter with a photograph from one ethnographer, who in the summer months a tour guide on a motor ship along the route Kem – Solovki. The information was so unexpected that I contacted him. So. The photo depicted a rock in which guessed Outlines of a large stone door. To my question: “What is this?” —the guide told a terrific story. It turns out in the summer of 2012 years, he, along with a group of tourists sailed past the Russian island Body. The ship was near the shore, and people enjoyed examined picturesque cliffs. The guide at this time told them stories of mysterious encounters with the mythical a miracle sikirtya. Suddenly, one of the tourists screamed heartily, showing hand ashore. The whole group immediately fixed their eyes on the rock, on which the woman indicated. The whole action lasted several seconds, however, tourists managed to see how the rock closes huge (three meters and a half) stone door, hiding behind itself silhouette of a small creature. The guide literally tore off his neck the camera and tried to take some pictures. Unfortunately, the shutter of his camera snapped when only the silhouette remained visible stone door. After a second, he disappeared. This was the first time. mass observation of the entrance to the dungeons of Chudy. Thereafter events doubt the reality of existence in the rocks and under the land of this legendary people does not have to! Interviewed Dmitry SIVITSKIY
