Where is Pushkin actually buried?

It would seem that absolutely everything has long been known about the life, death, and even more so about the burial of the great Russian poet. However, as it turns out, even the grave of Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin is fraught with many mysteries in its depths. And many of them, apparently, will not open to the general public any time soon. It is not for nothing that before the restoration of the tombstone in 1953, everyone who participated in this event signed a non-disclosure document. Many consider the process of Pushkin’s burial itself to be one of the main secrets of the burial of the famous poet. Referring to eyewitness accounts of this strange action, some researchers are inclined to believe that the body of a completely different person rested in the coffin instead of the body of Alexander Sergeevich. The fact is that at first Pushkin’s funeral was planned in St. Isaac’s Cathedral. However, on the night of January 31, the deceased “at the direction of senior management” was moved to the Stable Church. Zhukovsky wrote about this incident as follows:

“. the body was transferred with some kind of secret that amazed everyone, without torches and without guides.”

After the funeral service, the mysteries did not end. According to the wishes of Pushkin himself, it was decided to bury him in the Svyatogorsk Monastery, located on Pskov land. Before the poet’s body arrived at his resting place, the Pskov governor Peschurov received a letter from the official Mordvinov. He, on behalf of the emperor, demanded that “there be no meeting” and “no ceremonies.” The poet’s body was transported again under cover of darkness. It is noteworthy that all stages of the funeral were directly handled by the tsar, as well as Count Benckendorff, during whose lifetime there were rumors about his participation in organizing the murder of Pushkin. And if this is so, then the count needed to get rid of the main evidence – the body of Alexander Sergeevich or replace it with something else. Hence the change of churches, night, secrecy and other suspicious actions and circumstances. Meanwhile, there is still a dead person in the grave. And the scientists who were involved in the restoration of Pushkin’s tombstone in 1953 were able to verify this. They all signed a non-disclosure document. The director of the Pushkin Nature Reserve, Semyon Geichenko, who supervised the work, wrote that when the workers dismantled the above-ground part of the burial, they recoiled in surprise: Alexander Sergeevich’s crypt turned out to be two-story. In the upper square chamber of the grave, according to Geichenko, two human skulls and bones were found. Experts determined that the remains belonged to an elderly man and woman, but experts could not say anything more. In particular, many could not imagine how someone else’s bones could have ended up in Pushkin’s grave, and even in a room that seemed specially designated for them. However, some Pushkin scholars are still confident that the great poet belonged to the Masonic lodge. And the skulls and other remains in Pushkin’s burial are very reminiscent of the Masonic ritual called “Death’s Head”. The fact that Pushkin was a Freemason is also indicated by the actions of his comrades after the funeral: they left white gloves in the poet’s coffin. This is a ritual traditional for Freemasons, meaning that even death cannot separate the “brothers”. But the most interesting thing is that the restoration of the burial place of Alexander Sergeevich was carried out in 1902. And then none of the participants in the work even mentioned any chambers with skulls. Even the architect Nazimov, who led all the actions, did not say a word about anything like that. Thus, it turns out that only those who were involved in the restoration of Pushkin’s tombstone in 1902 could build the “second tier” and place the remains of unknown people there. Well-known researcher Vladimir Novikov believes that this is quite possible, since it was at that time that Masonic lodges became especially active in Russia. As before, the backbone of the Freemasons were educated individuals, the so-called people of art: writers, artists, architects. So both Nazimov himself, who supervised the work, and his subordinates could arrange a ritual burial. In addition, according to eyewitnesses, the restoration work was not particularly supervised by anyone, so any participant in the restoration process can be suspected of this provocation. The great poet of Russia died on January 29, 1837 from a wound received in a duel with Dantes. He held the pen firmly in his hand, but with the pistol she trembled. The funeral service for the deceased was quickly carried out, but not where it was originally intended – not in the most pompous cathedral of northern Palmyra, but in the stable church (the stables belonged to His Majesty the Emperor). 60 grenadiers were taken to the streets to block the church from the people. This was already a panic of the authorities. Portrait of Pushkin. Author O. Kiprensky 1828

And dead Pushkin was dangerous

And even there, in the funeral room, there was no room to squeeze between Benckendorf’s gendarmes. After the funeral service, the same gendarmes quickly pushed the coffin into the church basement. The people who surrounded the church were perplexed by this action of the authorities, who sought to kick again Pushkin, albeit dead. The authorities remembered how the popular revolt grew during the Napoleonic invasion, and the dead Pushkin could cause an even greater one. So great was his poetic name! According to rumors of those years, the chief of the gendarmes himself was preparing the duel, and was now covering his tracks. And at night the corpse was replaced by an unknown person, the coffin was nailed tightly into a box, which was hammered and tarred. The stable church, in which A.S. was buried. Pushkin This box was sent to Pskov. Alexander Pushkin respected St. Petersburg, but hated its cemeteries. I even dedicated a poem to them: about the tombs in the swamp; slimy graves and so on. Not like the Pskov region: dryness and grace. Therefore, during his lifetime, he ordered himself to be buried in his homeland, near Mikhailovsky. In the family cemetery of a large family, near the mother. He staked out a place nearby and for himself, as was customary in those distant times. But, as it turned out, what was “supposed” was not for everyone in that Russia. Especially for Alexander Sergeevich.
And on the night of February 3, the coffin with the body of the poet, who moved to the Pskov region, was also secretly loaded into the convoy. The Hannibal-Pushkin family lands were located there. They transported him in a cart, covering the coffin with straw so that no one would guess who was being transported with such security. Under the cover of the same officials of Benckendorf. Necropolis of the Hannibal-Pushkins in the Svyatogorsk Holy Dormition Monastery On February 6, early in the morning, we arrived at the place, and the imperial spy of the convoy, the poet A.I. Turgenev handed over a strict order from the emperor. Any meetings or ceremonies should be excluded, so the coffin was quickly lowered into the hole. Among those buried was Pushkin’s nanny from childhood, Nikita Kozlov. He understood what the gendarmes were doing and tried to remember the place where Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin was buried, in which nook of the local monastic monastery. And not near the mother. Pushkin and the authorities are antagonists. They really annoyed each other. Pushkin – with political lyrics, power – with links.

So where is the grave?

It is not surprising that now many people are still interested in where Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin is buried, a photo of this place. The Tsarist secret police buried A. Radishchev in such a way, allegedly after suicide, that the grave has not yet been found. The autopsy of Pushkin’s body was performed by a physician and writer Vladimir Dal. According to his friends, he was not allowed to remove the bullet. What is it for? To avoid identifying a sniper shot? Or why was it forbidden to perform funeral services in Pskov? When the funeral service is performed, the coffin is opened. And so there was just a box. They threw him into a hole and only covered him with snow. So I stayed there until spring. Relatives were not at the grave. Pushkin’s grave in the Svyatogorsk Assumption Monastery It was possible to check who was buried more than once. Now the slope slid down, now the grave sank. They noticed that the box was no longer there, but the coffin was well preserved. In 1953, work was carried out in this reserve to strengthen the monument at Pushkin’s grave. Two skulls of unknown and elderly people were found in the grave. Not the age of Alexander Sergeevich. The version about the Masonic ritual with heads went for a walk, and the entire Pushkin family were Masons. There are plenty of modern methods for identifying individuals.
