Mel’s Hole is a supposed geographic anomaly discovered by Mel Waters on his land near Ellensburg, Washington. Waters claimed that he lived in or near Manastash Ridge, Washington, about nine miles due west of Ellensburg, though later investigation revealed that no such person was listed as a resident. According to Waters, the hole has paranormal properties, including a possibly infinite depth and the ability to restore dead animals to life.
It is speculated that the hole’s properties might be tied to some cosmological events, including unspecified alignments of the moon.
A strange phenomena is happening in some Russian forests. People are finding strange, deep holes. They appear in the dense forest, in the places you can’t get on the car or truck to bring any device to drill the ground. There is no soil nearby that should be taken from such deep hole. When people are brave enough to venture into the holes, they find that they end abruptly in the darkness. There are no any reasonable ideas on how these holes appear and what they are being used for. No one knows who or what is digging these holes or why.

You still haven't explained where the soil sampling UFO comes into it!
Initial plans for a rapid transit system in Kharkiv were made when the city was a capital of the Ukrainian SSR. However, after the capital moved to Kiev in 1934 and Kharkiv suffered heavy destruction during World War II, a rapid transit system was dropped from the agenda. In the mid-1960s, the existing mass transit system became too strained, and construction of the metro began in 1968.
borehole (well, dug well) A hole drilled into rock, usually by rotary methods, to enable an assessment to be made of the characteristics of the rock itself and of contained fluids, e.g. groundwater, natural gas, or petroleum. The size may range from a few tens of millimetres in diameter to over 300 mm, and boreholes can be drilled at any angle to depths of several kilometres. Rock samples may be recovered from below the surface, the rock may be examined by downhole geophysical or other methods, or pumping tests may be run. Boreholes may also be used as water, gas, or oil production wells.
Today's borehole launch proves a successful cooperation of Ukraine with foreign partners. He expressed hope for further effective cooperation of the Ukrainian side with the Shell company, which is an investor of this project.
The President drew attention to the fact that the project implemented in Kharkiv also considers the environmental factor. "It is very important that we always have a high level of environmental protection. I am grateful to the Shell company for the component of environmental protection," he said.
