The Russian tourist company “Extreme Travels in Russia” (Экстремальные путешествия) offers tours in Pakistan, a country that Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, aka Olga Sim (Ольга Сим), one of its two partners, “discovered” in 2009. This important activity, in term of firm turn-over, was developed thanks to helpful local connections. However, they might, nowadays, endanger the whole business. Indeed, the company fell under the deception of a toxic interlocutor resulting in compromise regarding a domestic and international scheme of hatred and violence, where manipulation of Pakistani authorities and justice is just one of the severely worrying issues.
Before it would be shared on social media, this article was submitted to Ms Olga Leonidovna Ozerova’s review for potential amendments (see exhibit). She did not comment. However, if she wants to use her right for answer, it will be integrally posted on this website subject to the fact it does not present any extra defamation, threat and blackmail or any other statement prohibited by the French law about freedom of speech.

2. Olga Leonidovna Ozerova’s love story with Hunza, Northen Pakistan
“Hunza is a mountainous valley in the autonomous Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. Hunza is situated in the northern part of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, bordering with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the west and the Xinjiang region of China to the north-east“. (Wikipedia).
Quotes from Olga Sim’s blog БЛОГ О ПАКИСТАНЕ Путевые заметки Ольги Сим on extreme-travels.org
“Жители Хунзы – горцы, со светлой по сравнению с южанами-пенджабцами кожей. Но главное – заметные с первого взгляда доброта и теплота, излучающие от всех людей. Нет в них и намека на холодность и хитрость горожан.“
The inhabitants of Hunza are highlanders, with light skin compared to the southerners-Punjabis. But the main thing is the kindness and warmth, noticeable at first sight, radiating from all people. There is not even a hint of coldness and cunning in them.
“Во всем горном Пакистане есть своя непередаваемая прелесть. Главное – это ощущение чистоты и красоты, которые возможно существовали на нашей планете более 100 лет назад. Почему они сохранились в Пакистане? Во-1-х, из-за удаленности мест от основных дорог цивилизации, во-2-х, благодаря политической изоляции и неправильном представлении об этой стране в мире сюда не приезжают толпы туристов и жители также оторваны от остального мира, благодаря чему сохранилась чистота и доброта и домашняя атмосфера среди жителей, которые видимо когда-то были характерны для всей Индии”.
All mountainous Pakistan has its own indescribable charm. The main thing is the feeling of purity and beauty that may have existed on our planet more than 100 years ago. Why did they survive in Pakistan? Firstly, due to the remoteness of places from the main roads of civilization, secondly, due to political isolation and a misconception about this country in the world, crowds of tourists do not come here and residents are also cut off from the rest of the world, thanks to which cleanliness has been preserved and the kindness and homely atmosphere among the inhabitants, which apparently were once characteristic of all India”
“Так же как и ваханцы, бур\иши исповедают исмаилистский ислам, который наименее строгий из всех видов ислама. Именно поэтому в Хунзе можно часто увидеть женщин с непокрытой головой, самостоятельных женщин, имеющих работу, а также, поскольку в исмаилизме делается особый упор на образование, эти горцы имеют самое высокое процентное соотношение образованного населения в Пакистане по сравнению с другими народностями.”
Like the Wakhis, the Burushaskis practice Ismaili Islam, which is the least strict of all forms of Islam. This is why bareheaded women are often seen in Hunza, independent women with jobs, and because of the emphasis on education in Ismailism, these highlanders have the highest percentage of educated people in Pakistan compared to other peoples.
Please note: The past infatuation of Olga Sim (Ольга Сим) with Hunza may have led her to generalise the peace and the safety of this region to all Pakistan. On her website she writes: “Pakistan is an absolutely safe country to visit, there is no Islamic extremism, terrorism or other crime”. This is not correct. British government expresses strong warnings. “There’s a high threat of terrorism and sectarian violence throughout the country. The main terrorist threat comes from Tehrik-e Taleban Pakistan (TTP)… TTP and Daesh conduct attacks throughout Pakistan”. In october 20, 2020, a bomb attack on a Peshawar Madrasa killed seven people and more than 50 were injured.Eleven coal miners belonging to the Shia Hazara community were slaughtered by gunmen in Balochistan on January 4, 2021. This Islamism was exported to France where Pakistani Zaheer Hassan Mehmood, a follower of Khadim Hussain Rizvi seriously injured two people in Paris (Rue Appert) with a meat cleaver in an attempt to behead them, on September 25, 2020. The terrorist was applauded by his father, living in Pakistan. Pakistani dissident, Karima Baloch, was found dead, on December 22, 2020 in Toronto. Pakistani secret services, ISI, are suspected being behind this death.
3. How Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, from “Russian Extreme Travels” is sadly endangering her long honey moon with Hunza
3.1. Extreme Travels in Russia is tragically embedded on a toxic road to hell
A few years after Olga Sim (Ольга Сим) “discovered” Pakistan, an urban woman from lowlands, in her mid thirties, born in Faizalabad, moved from Karachi to Upper Hunza. Ms Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, after an initial enthusiasm she shared with Olga Sim, who became her friend, sunk into nervous breakdowns and into mental disorders.
Unable to adapt to the harsh high altitude conditions, unable to apply her theoretical academical and trendy models, facing affective disappointments, she did not get the leadership she though local people owed her. Ms Ramla Akhtar started to abhor the land where she stucked herself, and the populations living in this environment. From isolated rantings, she radicalized herself. She shifted to a hatred and violence discourse targetting the religious and ethnic Wakhi minority located in Gojal, Upper Hunza. Harming the livelihood of the families, depriving them from foreign visitors revenue, became the new aim of her desperate life haunted with suicidal impulses. That’s why, in May 2019, she launched an intense defamatory campaign, on social media, against her targets, which from compassionate to her situation started to worry for themselves.
3.2. Olga Sim made a mistake while encouraging the causes of the report about unsupported allegations against Chapursan Valley community
“Chapursan is a valley containing some eight scattered villages within the Hunza District of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It is the most Northern part of Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan and China. Majority of the people in the valley speak the Wakhi Language,They belong to the Ismaili sect of Islam“. (Wikipedia)
May be, because of their friendship, may be because they were both actual outsiders in this high valley, Olga Sim (Ольга Сим) supported the radical turn of her friend and, in a certain manner, encouraged her to exteriorise her frustration and bitterness. Despite the warning received, none of them took seriously the memorandum, which was being prepared to debunk Ramla Akhtar’s galls spoiling the communities. This was a miscalculation. The document was composed by Bernard Grua, a photographer, blogger and media contributor, who also publishes on “Russia Beyond”, a Russian state media, and on “Agoravox”, a French public media where he gets tens of thousands readers for his reportages about isolated places of Siberia. He released his Pakistani report in June 2019 : “Chapursan Valley, analysis of Ms Ramla Akhtar’s posts against the Wakhi minority – credibility assessment of alleged conspiracy theories – concerns about imported extremism“. For such a specialized publication regarding such a remote location, it was surprisingly widely shared and commented. It reached more than 2,700 readers.
3.3. The ultimatum sent by Olga Sim (Ольга Сим), to the Chapursan report author, did not reach its goal but leads to further embarassments
During one year and a half, Ms Ramla Akhtar used all possible means, some illegal in western countries, to get the report removed from internet. It did not work. She eventually asked her friend Olga Sim (Ольга Сим), from “Extreme Travels” for help. The Russian woman sent an ultimatum to the French author on January 10, 2020. You will find below her message, and the answer she received.
Ultimation sent to Chapursan report author by Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, aka Ольга Сим (Olga Sim), from “Экстремальные путешествия” (Extreme Travels)
Dear Bernard my message is snort. I am currently in Islamabad. If you do not remove all the websites, youtube channels and other texts in all other social media about Ramla and if you do not stop harassing her, i am opening a case against you with Ministry of Interior of PK, with the support of my PK friends who are both from GB* and KPK*. There will be the following matters we are opening against you:
1. A foreigner interferig into private life of PK citizens. Such as distributing info to Gojal people about private matters. Making groups and movements within certain PK people against another PK person
2. Religious assault, you multiple sentences about “a Sunni girl attacking peaceful Ismaili comunity” – this comes to the subject of antiterrorist law of PK
3. Supporting separatist movement of Hunza
If you do not remove all the info from all over Internet within a week and continue your activity , i will open the case, with at least 10 PK citizens sighning, with the aim of putting you into a black list of Pakistan, when you will not be able to travel to Pakistan ever again.
Hope that is clear.
Farewell. I have no time or efforts to discuss it any further
Answer received by Olga Leonidovna Ozerova, Ольга Сим (Olga Sim), from “Экстремальные путешествия” (Russian Extreme Travels)
To Ms Olga Leonidovna Ozerova (Extreme Travels, Russian Federation)
I hereby confirm I received your open threat and blackmail via Facebook Messenger on Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 18:30 French time. It is copied below my answer. You refer to the case of Ms Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, a Pakistani citizen, who stalks me with two Twitter accounts @GruaAbuseArkive (#3287184386) and @CopingWithCovid (#142457898). As of today 19:00 (French time) Ms Akhtar sent more than 1,576 tweets (list attached) against me, Bernard Grua, a French citizen. I am harassed, insulted, doxed, defamed and targeted by calumnious denunciations from this person since September 18, 2019. Complaints were filed by Nantes High Court for the Public Prosecutor and by the Pakistan Federal Investigation Agency cybercrime wing.
I am surprised a Russian citizen, like you, is taking part into a Pakistani cybercriminal case against a French citizen. This is not appropriate. Moreover, the insulting allegations you are presenting in despicable words are fake-news and blatant lies. They are loaded with the fanatic ideology of hatred and violence promoted by Ms Ramla Akhtar. I condemn them. I will make them public, unless you debunk them and you apologize within the next 24 hours. This does not, in any way, prejudge the other consequences that I could give to this affair and to your complicity. Additionally, I demand you to stop, immediately, this harassment.
Sent by Bernard Grua, Nantes, France January 10, 2021, at 20:20 (French Time)
More information about the ultimatum and screen captures are available here: A Russian travel operator taking part in the cyberharassment scheme of a Pakistani stalker against a French citizen.
4. “Extreme Travels in Russia” is, now, in choppy waters regarding Gilgit-Baltistan: deterioration of local relations, criminal risks with Pakistani justice.
Ms Akhtar’s conspiracy allegations do not find any approbation in Upper hunza. In the opposite, they create a deep reprobation. This repulsion is extended to those who support her hatred campaign. Olga Leonidvona Ozera, aka Olga Sim (Ольга Сим), unfortunately, and with non-ambiguous words, showed she was part of the supporters. It may have durable impacts on her activity. In this difficult area where nothing can be conducted without local goodwill, the service she could render might suffer. Moreover, if “Extreme Travels” goes until the full realization of the plan sent to Bernard Grua: creating a group of 10 external agitators and fake witnesses presenting Ms Akhtar’s forgeries to justice, it mightbe a contempt of court punishable by fine or imprisonment. Olga Sim should better be inspired by breaking with this toxic case, by apologizing to the harmed community and by rebuilding professional relations with Gilgit-Baltistan authorities. Any traveler who wants to hire “Extreme Travels” services, should check these crucial steps were taken, prior entering into any commercial agreement with this firm.
Getting rid of the scandal is a real issue to consider for “Extreme Travels”, while knowing how the Ramla Akhtar’s accusations listed by Ms Olga Leonidvona Ozera are proved to be malicious and outrageous fake news. See: “Debunking the “maskirovka”, propaganda and blackmail, of a Russian travel operator, against a French photographer & blogger in Pakistan“.
5. Why the beauty of this wonderful, but hard, region and its courageous inhabitants is not what the stalking partners present?
Collection of stories published on “Medium” about high valleys and mountains at the borders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and China. These different papers provide some background on geography, traditions, religion, history, geopolitics, communities, minorities, environment, external interactions, development issues and globalisation in this remote area. Some have been published by Pakistani media such as “Passu Times” and “Pamir Times”. Access to the stories
Staying in Chapursan Valley
If wanting to stay in Chapursan Valley you look for homestay and activities, get inspiration with the complete and detailed Pamir Serai guest house website. It is ideal to prepare your trip. If you are travelling with a low connection, you can use the simpler but fast loading version of Pamir Serai website. The two websites were designed by Bernard Grua on a volunteer principle to support the local community.
