Not every day we get a CHIEF OF POLICE reporting a UFO crash landing!
Internal Affairs of the Pavlodar region are searching for an unidentified flying object. According to eyewitnesses, on the evening of January 4th over the village Koktobe, a UFO fell into the river Belaya. At the crash site, a hole with a diameter of 15 meters was discovered. Local people believe - a UFO had crashed into the river, experts of the Department for Emergency Situations said it might have been a meteorite. But so far none of the possible explanations are confirmed.
At about 8pm on January 4th, the villagers of Koktobe in the south Pavlodar region saw a bright glow in the sky. An Unidentified Flying Object flew over the houses and fell into the Belaya river about 1-2 kilometers from the village. At the reported crash site, a hole of a diameter of 15 meters was discovered in the ice. Near the site of the crash, huge chunks of ice were found nearby.
Although no one heard any noise of the crash, something really did crash in the river says one of the locals Oleg Maslov. It's not easy to break ice that has a thickness of 50 centimeters. The ice during winter easily holds a weight of up to 7-8 tons. Can you imagine what the force of impact would be to break something like that?
Another eyewitness to incident is the Chief of Police Department in the district, Kanat Soltambayev. He was the person that reported it to his department and it reached the regional government.
January 6th. Employees from the Department for Emergency Situations were sent to the scene. They began to investigate and collected samples of the water and ice. The presence of radiation or any other toxic substances were not found.
January 7th. Divers were sent to explore the river to find any signs of anything that might have crashed in the river. The depth of the location where the incident took place was 5 meters. After 4 dives, nothing was found.
January 8th. In the city of Pavlodar, the governor Alexandra Verbnyaka held an emergency meeting where the Internal Affairs reported the results of the investigation. None of the experts could say for certain what had actually happened. If a meteorite had fallen, where are the traces of melted ice from crash into the ice. Despite the fact that numerous spacecraft are launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The region where the incident took place, does lie along the flight paths of some of these spacecraft. It might have been debris from the spacecraft, although that can be ruled out. There were no launches on the 4th or 5th of January from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. After the full report was given, Governor Alexandra Verbnyaka instructed that the investigation be continued.
January 9th. The exploration of the depths continued and yet again nothing was found. The media began reporting this incident and said that a meteorite had fallen into the river. However, the Department of Emergency Situations denied this. Repeated search operations came to nothing, no wreckage of any kind was found - said Deputy Head of the Department of Emergency Situations Igor Filonov. The radiation levels are normal, water samples yielded nothing. Igor Filonov could not answer exactly what had fallen into the river.
