Allegedly occurring in the city of Voronezh, this account was actually carried in America by the St. Louis Dispatch, on October 11, 1989. Its original source was the Russian newspaper Tass. The case begins with the testimony of several children who claimed to see a three-eyed alien, who was guarded by a robot. The children along with some adults, watched a UFO land on the outskirts of the city of 800,000. Soon, a tall alien being emerged from the ship, and shot a beam at a young boy. The young boy supposedly vanished. The details of the case originated with one Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, who related his findings to TASS. Silanov says that the newspaper took creative license with his report. The Russian newspaper stated that Russian scientists had confirmed the landing of an alien spaceship. This ship was flown by giant aliens who had small, beady heads. Their spaceship was a large ball-shaped object. According to the TASS report, three of these giant alien beings emerged from the craft, and strolled through a nearby park. The frightening robot never left their side. Members of a crowd that had gathered near the craft stated that they had seen a "three-eyed alien about 10 feet tall, clad in silvery overalls and bronze-colored boots and wearing a disk on his chest." The giant aliens must have been frightened by the small children, because one of the aliens pointed a weapon at one young boy, and caused him to disappear. The alien himself then disappeared into the ship. The children made various drawings of the aliens and their ship which were published in the newspaper.
Several drawings were made by some of the children who supposedly witnessed the events of Voronezh. A couple of these are included here. One of the drawings showed the Cyrillic alphabet character "zhe" on the side of the UFO. TASS listed three witnesses' names, all of whom were youngsters. They also stated that a group of international researchers would be investigating the claims of the witnesses. Voronezh residents interviewed later claimed they had observed this UFO not just during the above incident but also many times on September 21, 23, 29 and October 2, between 6 and 9 PM. Some of these incidents involved a different entity: small, with grayish-green face and blue overcoat resembling a loose raincoat.
On October 28, Agence France Press published a new more informed dispatch: a commission directed by the vice-president of the University of Voronezh had carried out analyses and checks on the site of the landing, and refuted all the rumours: no radioactivity, no anomaly. The chief of the Laboratory of Geophysics of Voronezh specified that so-called "rock unknown on Earth requiring more analyses" was merely a piece of iron ore.
