Totally unconfirmed and probably erroneous reports of other Russian deaths from the Torre Bert tracking station in Italy and from West Germany include: [list][*]18 to 21:5:61 - SCIBOTIN, DOLGLOV (now believed to have died testing ejection seats for Vostok)
[*]14:10:61 - an unnamed man
[*]20:10:62 - LODOVSKY
[*]12:11:62 - BELOKONEV - retros failed to fire
[*]4:4:64 - IVAN & VIGOLA VALENTIN - on a rendezvous mission.[/list] These deaths are strongly denied by the Russian authorities as having occurred on spaceflights.
Nevertheless, whilst the Soviets remain somewhat secretive about their intentions these stories will persist. For example, the commemorative stamp issued for two cosmonauts was for early balloonists.
