This sounds pretty bizarre... and I don't see much in the way of documentation, so I'm skeptical... but, if true, it would confirm many legends that
have swirled around the primatological community for decades:
"THE Soviet dictator Josef Stalin ordered the creation of Planet of the Apes-style warriors by crossing humans with apes, according to recently
uncovered secret documents.
"Moscow archives show that in the mid-1920s Russia's top animal breeding scientist, Ilya Ivanov, was ordered to turn his skills from horse and
animal work to the quest for a super-warrior. "
IF true... this raises many questions. For instance, if the soviets were able to create a viable man-ape through natural reproduction alone... it
would imply that humans and chimps are the same biological species.
