So, I've been here for a while posting some info in ATS threads concerning Russia. Guess it's time for me to start my first thread.
In soviet times the problem of UFOs was a no-no. For example, one of my relatives who took part in the
battle of Kursk
during WW2 told me there were mass ufo sightings during the climax of the
battle, but everyone thought those were nazi aircraft. Rumours started spreading in the 70s with the development of the space program, but were not
discussed on the TV or in the press. When Glastnost and Perestroika came there was an immense interest to the topic. A strange coincidense - as the
USSR slowly collapsed, there were more and more mass UFO sightings every year. Thus ufology in Russia was born - and along with real keen minds who
searched for the truth came a lot of rascals, who would make up stories just to make a name. There were so many of them, it is now hard to tell ufo
mythology from real unexplained facts.
Anyway, there is a list of over 200 ufo crashes on the territory of the USSR that allegedly took place in the last century. This list can be found on
almost every russian website dedicated to aliens and UFOs. So' I'll post some of the most interesting cases (and the ones that have some proofs to
them) and then write where all these remains might be stored. Remember this information can not be verified - so take it with a pinch of salt.
1908 - The Tunguska event
, one of the most famous alleged crashes.
1941 - a UFO crashed near Rostov-on-Don. The area was secured by what later became known as KGB. They had to bring in a lot of trucks to clear the
area. According to the rumours the fragments were transferred to Kapustin Yar, now a russian ICBM testing ground, where they soon mysteriously
1955 - russian analogue of Majestic 12 is created in Kapustin Yar. This happened after a bunch of interceptors sent to investigate UFOs
1959 - a UFO crashes into water near Gdynia, Poland. Russian army units captured an extraterrestrial and according to rumours to this day its body is
kept in one of Moscow's laboratories.
1959 - a UFO crashes in Saribylak, Kazahstan. The objest in the form of a silver disk is transferred to Protvino, Moscow region, where it is examined
and then cut open by scientists. Five of them die soon of a strange disease.
1961 - a UFO lands near Saint-Petersburg and takes a probe of earth ground. Apparently it crashes, but then manages to repair itself and leave off
before army units arrive. This accident is described in the book called "The Roswell Incident" by Chаrles Berlitz & William Moore. PP. 151-162,
”The Russian Connection”.
1978 - UFO battle in the skies of Jigansk, Yakutia republic. A disk-shaped UFO was shot down by a cigar-like one. Two extraterrestrial bodies were
recovered and autopsied. The remains were later transferred to an underground facility in Tomsk-7, one of USSR's secret technopolises. Later it was
transferred to Novaya Zemlya, a secret lab in the north of Russia which is now abandoned.
1979 - A UFO sets off anti-missile alarm in Moscow airspace and is shot down by an interceptor. It's remains are taken to Vnukovo, a town near Moscow.
Apparently, there is a secret lab there disguised as a weather station.
1980 - a special unit in russian army is created to deal with UFO sightings and crashes. Special services receive UFO contact procedure plans.
1980 - a dramatic UFO chase near Ural. Three russian interceptors are shot down. The UFO is damaged, but manages to escape.
1984 - a military plane finds an abandoned UFO near Saratov. It is transferred to Vnukovo.
1986 - one of the most well known accidents in Dalnegorsk
, russian Far East.
These are just few of reported UFO crashes. In the next post I will tell you where russian area 51 is supposed to be located, how some guys tried to
debunk the conspiracy and what happened.
