20 years without Sergei Bodrov: what happened on that ill-fated day21.09.2022
At about 8 pm the Kolka glacier descended. This led to a huge mudflow – in just 20 minutes, the Karmadon Gorge, where Sergei Bodrov and the film crew were located, was covered with stones, ice and mud.
“Later it turned out: by that time there were already satellite images, which made it clear that this would happen. But they requested this data after the incident. If they had seen this before, they could have warned about the danger and evacuated the local residents, ”said the mother of one of the victims, Larisa Kesaonova.
In North Ossetia, 19 people died due to a glacier meltdown (that’s how many bodies were found by rescuers), another 106 are still missing, including 42 people from Bodrov’s team. He was only thirty years old.
