In Russian folklore itchetiky are shaggy tiny men, spirits of babies who were drowned by their mothers. They live in water, in whirlpools and close to water-mills. Sometimes one can hear a sound as if someone slapped his hand upon the water, and this sound signifies that itchetiky are around somewhere. To meet an itchetik is an evil omen.
