Grienko Lab

Grienko's lab in the Zener Facility

The Zener Research Facility is the home of Grienko's Zener Project.


A Cold War parapsychology research and eugenics facility commissioned by Stalin and set up in Dubrensk by Grienko in 1953. It's aim was to investigate the potential for the use of psychic abilities in furthering USSR expansion. Proposed applications extended from covert intelligence gathering and espionage to the use of battlefield psychic shock troops. When the successes of the project, the so-called Zener Children, were found to be withdrawn, distant and uncooperative, the project was cancelled and funding suspended.
