In 1994, Ilya gets in contact with the German group of researchers who put in doubt the conventional chronological model. He participates in the debate and specialises on the Arab and Islamic world, the Arab-Andalusian coins and so on, a task that is eased by his knowledge of Arabic. He also works with Uwe Topper on the problem of the development of our Calendar.

In 2005, Ilya creates and launches the newchronology website; as its webmaster he is responsible for the structure of the site.
