The yeti is pretty engrained in the culture of Bashkortostan, according to RT.com. It's a region that has frequent yeti sightings and a rich trove of folklore about the abominable snowman. So it makes sense this is the region where the yeti actually lives and why it was caught on camera leaving absolutely no questions about whether or not the yeti exists.
Or the blurry biped could be a kid in a coat, but probably not. That seems less likely than the figure being a mythical beast. It's definitely a mythical animal. 2016 owes it to us all to make this a yeti. It's a yeti.
