A widow has spoken for the first time about the horrific death of her husband who was eaten by his friends after the party got lost at sea in bitter temperatures for nearly two months.

Olga Kurochkin, 37, said her life had been ruined by the terrible fate of Andrei whose remains were found in the pitiless eastern reaches of Siberia.

Two members of the four-strong party survived the ordeal and, after carrying the head of 44-year-old Mr Kurochkin through the wild, told police they had eaten the man from Saratov after he froze to death.

Forensic analysis of Mr Kurochkin’s body parts revealed that sections of flesh had been carefully sliced away while joints had been butchered.

Speaking to The Siberian Times Mrs Kurochkin said: ‘I never expected such horror could come into my life. It has ruined not just my life, but also the lives of all our relatives, and we are a big family.

‘Can you imagine what I have left? One foot with toes, one finger, and the back of his skull with some hair.

‘This is it. This is all I have left from the man I loved. Having just these remains, how can I say goodbye to him? I have got almost nothing to cry over.

‘I can’t think about it, I am losing my mind with this.’

Mrs Kurochki, who has a daughter Alyona, 21, is suing survivors Alexander Abdullaev, 37, and Alexei Gorulenko, 35, for emotional distress. She also wants a criminal prosecution brought against them.
