In the post-skydark era it was believed that the Soviet Union had created its own cryonics program, and that the awakened sleeper cell was operating in the deathlands. (Child of Slaughter)


Although there were rumours of Soviet cryonics, the first true Cryonic Centre was KrioRus. Established in 2005 by 8 Russian cryonicists, it is the first cryonics company outside the United States, except for Alcor-UK (formerly Mizar Limited).
