Russian defense minister wants to clone army of 3000 year old ancient warriors

Russia’s defence minister Sergei Shoigu has revealed his desire to clone 3,000-year-old army of ancient warriors from remains found in Siberia. This site is located in the Valley of the Kings in Tuva.

Just two decades ago, archaeologists in Siberia made the discovery of a lifetime. Buried in the Republic of Tuva were the remains of 3,000-year-old Scythian warriors with their horses. Not content to let them rest, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has now announced plans to clone them.

“Of course, we would like very much to find the organic matter and I believe you understand what would follow that,” he said.

Scythian warriors were commonly buried with their horses. Finding the remains of their trusty steeds wasn’t entirely surprising, although the evidence that the warriors likely sacrificed them was. Most shocking, of course, were the claims that the Russian state might want to clone these warriors back to life — and supplement its modern army.

The Scythians are generally believed to have been of Iranian origin and spoke a language of the Scythian branch of the Iranian languages.
