A decisive meeting of the Krasnogorsk city court of the Moscow region was held on the claim of the Grand Prince Pr. Dr. Valeriy Viktorovich Kubarev to establish the fact of kinship with Ivan IV Terrible. Judge A. A. Shemelina made a politicized decision, according to which the claim was denied on the basis of the impossibility of conducting a forensic molecular genetic examination, since the Royal tomb is located in a specially protected area-the residence of the President of the Russian Federation and a cultural object protected by UNESCO.
At the next session of the Krasnogorsk city court of the Moscow region on the claim of the Grand Prince Pr. Dr. Valeriy Viktorovich Kubarev, the court accepted the Applicant's additional request to clarify the list of persons subject to forensic molecular genetic examination to establish the fact of the Applicant's relationship with Ivan the Terrible.
Citation of their additional petition:
"The applicant – Kubarev Valeriy Viktorovich appealed to the Krasnogorsk city court of the Moscow region with an Application to establish the fact of kinship with Ivan IV Vasilyevich Terrible.
Since the Applicant's ancestor died a long time ago, it is necessary to conduct a forensic molecular genetic examination not only of the alleged relative directly, but also to perform complex research, as well as other ancestors, both male and female.
When the remains of Ivan the terrible were exhumed in the 1960s, it turned out that they were in a deplorable state and perhaps the genetic material was damaged by time and illness of the deceased. Therefore, for a high-quality forensic molecular genetic examination, it will be necessary to examine the remains of Ivan the Terrible's father, Vasily Ivanovich, and his son, Dmitry Ivanovich. From a genetic point of view, it is an identical genetic material of DNA.
The data obtained should be compared with the DNA of Prince Ivan Ivanovich Kubensky, the Applicant's ancestor – Valeriy Viktorovich Kubarev.
For scientific purposes and to establish the fact of kinship between the Moscow Rurikovich Tsars and the Golden Horde, you should also study the DNA of Kazan Khans resting in the Kremlin. We are talking about Peter (Quidacol), Alexander (Utemish Giray) and Simeon Bekbulatovich. It is also necessary to examine the DNA of the tsars and Emperors Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov, Peter I and Peter III, who are close relatives of the Applicant, and compare them with the Rurikovich.
To establish the fact that the applicants ' ancestors were related to Ivan the terrible in the female line, the mtDNA of the Moscow Tsars and Princesses should be examined and compared. We are talking about Sophia Palaiologos (Ivan the Terrible's grandmother), Elena Vasilyevna Glinskaya (Ivan the Terrible's mother), Ulyana Andreyevna Uglitskaya (Ivan the Terrible's aunt), Irina (married to Koshkin-Zakharin, the grandmother of two Anastasia Zakharinas), Anastasia Romanova (Ivan the Terrible's wife), Anastasia Vorotynskaya (Ivan the Terrible's wife's sister), and Anna Ivanovna Vorotynskaya (Anastasia Vorotynskaya's is daughter of Prince Ivan Kubensky).
The study of the DNA of these Royal persons and their relatives will provide comprehensive information on the basis of which it will be possible to make a court decision on the claim of the Applicant. The data obtained will be of great scientific and socio-political significance regarding the reliability of historical Chronicles and the history of the Russian Federation in the XV–XVIII centuries.
To establish the fact of kinship between Kubarev Valeriy Viktorovich and Ivan IV Vasilyevich Terrible, conduct a forensic molecular genetic examination of the DNA (male Y-chromosome and female mtDNA) of the Rurikovich and Romanov Royalty according to the attached list:
List of men:
1. Ivan IV the terrible, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
2. Vasily III, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
3. Dmitry Ivanovich, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
4. Ivan Ivanovich Kubensky, Smolensk Cathedral, Novodevichy monastery, Moscow.
5. Peter (Quidacol), the Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
6. Alexander (Utemish-Giray), Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
7. Simeon Bekbulatovich, the Dormition Cathedral of the Simonov monastery, Moscow.
8. Alexey Mikhailovich, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin.
9. Peter I, Peter and Paul fortress, St. Petersburg.
10. Peter III, Annunciation Church of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra, St. Petersburg.
List of women:
1. Sophia Palaiologos, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
2. Elena Glinskaya, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
3. Ulyana Andreyevna Uglitskaya, married Kubenskaya, Smolensk Cathedral, Novodevichy monastery, Moscow.
4. Irina (Koshkin-Zakharyin), Smolensky Cathedral, Novodevichy convent, Moscow.
5. Anastasia Romanova, Archangel Cathedral, Kremlin, Moscow.
6. Anastasia Vorotynskaya (Zakharyin-Yuriev), Smolensky Cathedral, Novodevichy convent, Moscow.
7. Anna Ivanovna Kubenskaya (Vorotynskaya), Smolensk Cathedral, Novodevichy monastery, Moscow»
Federal Judge A. A. Shemelina attached the petition to the case file, but did not even read or understand it, and did not try to investigate the possibility of conducting a DNA examination for the defendants in the list in the Archangel Cathedral of the Kremlin.
The court decision rendered is unfounded and hasty, as if it was received from above, without considering the clarification of the subject matter of the claim and the newly discovered circumstances of the case.
We believe that Judge A. A. Shemelina could have quietly appointed a DNA examination and entered the world's historical Chronicles, opening a new page for studying Russian history and the Royal families of Russia, but this did not happen.
The applicant requested a molecular genetic examination of the DNA of his relatives, including Prince Ivan Ivanovich Kubensky, the Princesses Kubensky and Romanov, who were buried not in the Kremlin, but in the Novodevichy monastery and Novospassky monastery, which are not specially protected objects.
The full text of the court decision will be received by the Grand Prince Pr. Dr. Valeriy Viktorovich Kubarev within ten days, after which it will be appealed to a higher court by the end of February 2020.
The case will be brought to the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, and in case of loss, the Applicant intends to apply to the ECHR, since these decisions violate fundamental human rights.
