On Sunday April 25 2021, David Olsen from the United States left the following message for Roman Zuev:
"Hello, I hope you speak Russian. I am looking for direct relatives of Vladimir Yevseyevich Zuev, a famous Russian Scientist, now diseased (1992?), who I met years ago during a conference in Italy. He was a distinguished scholar and Director of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics in Tomsk. I am writing a novel with him as one of the characters (a hero). I will change the name in the book, but nevertheless want to get my facts as straight as possible. I believe he was possibly the grandson of Mikhail Yevseyevich Zuev, called the Old Believer because of his religious affiliation, who fought the Soviets in Belorussia during the thirties and as a result was exiled to Siberia. If you can help me, by identifying someone from That family, I will greatly appreciate it. If English is a problem, I do have access to a translator. David Olsen."
