Grigory Petrovich Grabovoy (Russian: Григо́рий Петро́вич Грабово́й) (born 14 November 1963 in the region of Shymkent, Kazakhstan) is a Russian Doctor of Mathematics[citation needed] and convicted fraud. He claims to be a clear-sighted healer and the founder of the System of "Salvation and Harmonious Development" of all beings. In 2008, he was sentenced to 11 years in prison for promising the mothers of victims of the 2004 Beslan school siege that he could resurrect their children, but was released early in 2010.


Grabovoy claims the ability to abolish death, resurrect the dead, cure cancer and AIDS, teleport, and pinpoint and resolve at distance mechanical and electronic problems on airplanes, space stations, atomic electric power stations and any other technical constructions.[citation needed] He describes his abilities in his three volume book The Practice of Control. The Way to Salvation.[1] The goal of the teaching of Grabovoy, according to him, is passing on the Knowledge of The Lord to the people all over the World in order to save them from the possible global catastrophe, enable each one to reach perfect health, physical immortality, resurrect in their physical bodies everyone who's gone and provide the eternal constructive and harmonious development of the entire mankind.

According to multiple sources, Grabovoy promised grieving mothers of the 2004 Beslan school hostage crisis, that he could resurrect their dead children.[2]

In a March–April 2007 interview to Larisa Bochanova Susanna Dudieva, leader of Mothers of Beslan, stated that Grabovoy fell victim of a smearing campaign aimed at directing public attention away from poor handling of the Beslan hostage taking by authorities.[3] Dudieva named some of the media outlets that spread false information, often opposite to what she personally conveyed to them. Among those were Vladimir Vorsobin of Komsomolskaya Pravda, Dmitri Sokolov of Izvestia, Alexey Pimanov of the TV show Man and Order.

According to Yelena Milashina of Novaya Gazeta, authorities arrested Grabovoy on charges of fraud.[4] Milashina wrote that the Ostankino department of Prosecutor General of Russia threatened to sue a TV show Man and Order for incitement of religious hatred.[4] According to Milashina, Evgeny Saurov, who brought charges against Grabovoy 2 years earlier was prosecuted himself on an unrelated charge. Milashina alleged that Grabovoy was arrested at the behest of Vladimir Putin.[4]

Grabovoy sued the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda for 1.2 billion roubles (approximately $50 mln) but lost in the Savelovsky Court of Moscow.[5]

On 7 July 2008, Tagansky Court in Moscow found Grabovoy guilty of 11 counts of large-scale fraud and sentenced him to 11 years of imprisonment. According to the court sentence, Grabovoy organized a pyramid scheme, franchising his "followers" to practice the cult provided that they remit 10% of receipts to Grabovoy.[6] The court considered alleged receipts from the relatives of deceased people (an average of 40 thousand Russian roubles for resurrection of the dead) as an outward fraud. Relatives saw neither the resurrected dead nor the money.[7]

A group of Russian advocates including Mikhail Trepashkin brought an action to institute criminal proceedings against Vladimir Putin and President Medvedev in front of the United Nations[clarification needed The UN have no functioning as a court], the Hague Tribunal, the International Criminal Court for having effected Grigoriy Grabovoy's criminal prosecution.[8] Grabovoy's early release in May 2010 was appealed by the regional prosecutor office.[9][10]
