According to sources from the French daily, the scientist Grichka Bogdanoff was admitted to intensive care on December 15 after contracting Covid. On the same day, it was also said that his brother Igor entered there. “According to a source who knows the two brothers well, they have not been vaccinated against Covid-19,” the usually informed newspaper said.
Relatives confirm the brothers’ death, but do not comment on the cause of death. According to their lawyer, Eduard de Lamaze, the two brothers died of Corona.
Says former French Education Minister Luc Ferry, who was friends with the twins Paris He invited the brothers “up to fifty times” for vaccination. The last time was a few weeks ago, when they were still in great shape. “Grichka, like Igor, was not anti-vaccination. He was anti-vaccination himself,” Ferry says.
The eccentric twin brothers sparked a huge hit on French television in the late 1970s and early 1980s, including through a popular show about serious science fiction and science.
The brothers became known to the international audience with their distinctive and exemplary appearance, possibly as a result of numerous cosmetic surgical procedures. The brothers did not make any frank statements about the deformities in their faces, but called themselves “the experimenters”.
There were also rumors that the deformation of the cheekbones and chin was not only due to heavy surgeries. Thus, the brothers will suffer from acromegaly. This means that the body produces too many growth hormones, which causes the nose, chin, and limbs to grow disproportionately. This would explain, among other things, why their faces looked so swollen. Igor and Grichka went to a plastic surgeon to minimize the consequences of their condition as much as possible. Bogdanov did not confirm this themselves.
Igor and Grechka were physicians of physics and mathematics, and descendants of the Austrian aristocracy. But in recent years, there have been strong doubts about their academic qualities. Notorious is the so-called Bogdanov case, in which the brothers were accused of writing unfounded articles on fundamental physics. They are also accused of plagiarism and fraud. Igor was also shot for allegedly assaulting his ex-partner.
Igor Bogdanov left behind six children. His brother Grichka was not married and had no children.
