Alexander Abdullaev and Alexei Gradulenko Are Not Nancies. Cannibals? Yes. Nancies? No.
Two fishermen who survived for three months in -30C Russian wilderness by eating flesh of a friend deny murder and claim he froze to death
Alexander Abdullaev, 37, and Alexei Gradulenko, 35, survived being stranded for three months in the brutal wilderness of Yakutia, Russia by eating the corpse of a third man who succumbed to the constant -22 degree temperature. Although police originally thought Alex and Alex killed their friend Andrei Kurochkin, 44, to eat him they now believe they waited for him to become a Popsicle of his own accord first. The group, that was on a fishing expedition, became stranded when their UAV Jeep broke down.
For surviving the worst that Russia could throw at them and not getting squeamish about eating their friend, Alexander Abdullaev and Alexei Gradulenko are not Nancies.
They’re just cannibals with one hell’uva a survival story.
