"SU": The visible manipulation: There are suddenly astronauts missing on the fotos
The astronauts who have died are on the group fotos before. On latter fotos they are erased discretely, and the Moscow regime justifies the erasure with "other" reasons. Concerning Grigory Grigoryevich Nelyuboff there is said that "bad behaviour" was the reason for excluding him from the team. In 1966 he is said having committed suicide.(http://www.lostcosmonauts.com/erased.htm)

The manipulated group foto from Sochi of May 1961 since 1962 approx.: There is missing an astronaut in the background: Grigory Grigoryevich Nelyuboff.(http://www.lostcosmonauts.com/erased.htm)
Group foto of "SU" astronauts at Sochi in 1961, big group. The foto exists in different versions with up to 6 astronauts less.
On this foto are 22 people, 16 cosmonauts, add to this rocket engineer Korolioff, his wife, the daughter from cosmonaut Popovich, two educators and one doctor. Two more variations of this foto show up to 6 astronauts less, manipulated away.
Example of another lost "SU" astronaut

Bus or train ride with "SU" cosmonauts middle of the 1960s and photographer. Now one astronaut in the background is missing.
Sources of the Western secret services indicate that in the second half of the 1960s at least three high atmosphere missions [propaganda says "space missions"] of the "SU" remain uncleared and failed, inclusively one multiple start in 1966.
A list with the lost cosmonauts (astronauts) of the "Soviet Union"During the last decades many names of cosmonauts (astronauts) come out which allegedly died in space or have suddenly disappeared. These names come from different sources. Some of them are reliable, others not so reliable. They are shown here without comment and without verification if they live yet or not.
