76 Russian UFO Reports 1989




Here are 45 pages of UFO reports from Russia from 1989 onward. There are 76 separate events described. The sheer mass of material allows us to see conforming patterns and it nicely anchors comparables coming out of the US and the rest of the world.

A couple of important disclosures here. Item 12 in particular is not a real UFO but a wormhole expression that is linking to an initiation point in our future. This is one of several reports that appears to report that this happens. Yet another report informs us that stepping back in time is impossible for good scientific reasons. This is in fact my own understanding from my own theoretical efforts. Yet if it were possible, then a portal over a time gap will have a fuzzy window as we see described here. So how can we have something and not have something?

Item 65 describes alien perceptions of the science of worm holes that is extremely useful, again conforming my own thoughts while also directing as well. It is noteworthy that space is punctured as I thought that it might be. How it may be expanded is another tale.

The rest are similar to many other reports and generally, all interactions appear to be driven by a desire to acquire samples and data in one way or the other. There is little interest expressed in terms of asking for information of any kind. At the same time, when the contactee does ask for information it is sometimes provided although usually with generic cautions regarding our husbandry. These may have been contactee mental overlays however.

What has become increasingly clear is that activity has hugely increased and that they are not too concerned if the information is recalled and related by a single individual.



1989: Fall of the Iron Curtain / Return of the Humanoids

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 05, 2012



The following article was forwarded by long-time humanoid researcher and colleague Albert S. Rosales. The full narrative will be presented in four parts...enjoy!

Long ago it became clear that the Soviet Empire had begun to crumble long before the bizarre and indeed incredible article in the Soviet daily, Tass on Monday October 10 1989 detailing an account which shocked many in the west due to its bizarre nature, of course that was the report of an alleged landing of a UFO in a park in the Soviet city of Voronezh and even stranger still the fact that unusual looking humanoids exited the craft and apparently interacted with several local children which were apparently the main witnesses of the event. Later research by Russian researchers Genrih Silanov, Fyedor Kiselyov, Yuriy Lozotsev and Alexander Mosolov proved that there had been dozens of other close encounters and incidents in an around Voronezh starting in August through January 1990, the results were published in a book appropriately called “UFOs in Voronezh” published in 1990.

Before these events both leaders, Reagan, and Gorbachev spoke about the possibility of an alien invasion of earth and pointed out that if that happened all the nations of the earth would unite and do away with their petty political and geographical differences. Already in the spring of 1989 Hungary had begun to dismantle its fortified border with Austria, a clear signal that the division of postwar Europe was coming to an end. And before the astounded eyes of the world by the end of the year, on December 22 1989 to be exact the Brandenburg Gate in East Berlin is opened.

After the unprecedented wave of close encounters with humanoids and UFOs during the decade of the 70’s, 1980 signaled a clear slow down of reports or encounters, they had not completely gone away but there seemed to be less interest and hence less reports of UFOs and their occupants. This trend appeared to last until the end of 1988 and the beginning of 1989 when reports of humanoid encounters exploded, but in undoubtedly unexpected locations, mostly the whole territory of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. In my files alone I have over 500 high strangeness and humanoid encounters for 1989, more than half from the former Soviet Union, and for 1990 I have over 600 reports, again more than half from the former Soviet Union. As the wall crumbled interest in UFOs and aliens appeared to increase on a daily basis in this vast territory of hundreds of ethnicities with many accounts of bizarre encounters being published by local government controllednewspapers and other cases published by private researchers in their Samizdat newsletters. The wave of encounters, of all types, began in the former Soviet Union at the end of 1988 and lasted well into late 1997. I will concentrate today on 1989...a year that heralded many changes and marked ‘the return of the humanoids’.


The first case I will summarize does not have an exact date, only that it took place in ‘1989’. The witness was a military man and is typical as to the type of high-strangeness report that would become typical in 1989; also many of the witnesses to these events in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe were military personnel. Did this fact contribute to the rapid changes at the time?

1 Location. Near Aktash, Altay region, West Siberia, Russia
Date: 1989 Time: night

According to the testimony of retired Major I. A. Samoilenko a soldier of the local frontier guard detachment had disappeared from his night watch. The military immediately organized a search, but it brought no results. But three days later the missing frontier guard was found 5km from the mountainous settlement of Aktash. The soldier was very frightened, physically exhausted and could not explain any details of what had occurred. After a long rehabilitation period and therapy on him conducted by officers of a special military KGB detachment, the frontier guard remembered that during his night watch a bright flash of light had blinded him and after that he had lost consciousness. When he returned to his senses, he found himself in a strange room with walls that emitted an even bluish light with no visible source. Suddenly a voice from nowhere, that resembled that of the voice of a female or child, greeted him and warned him that he would be taken on a long journey.
After that it told the soldier that if he were selected for that honorable mission he would be helping a distant civilization very similar to humans in many aspects and located in the Gemini constellation. After that was said, the soldier lost consciousness again. He vaguely remember that next he saw several humanoid figures “without faces” leaning over him and examining his body. He was then exposed to attacks of sudden unbearable pain during this “medical examination”. After that he fell into a state of powerful euphoria and bliss, as if being narcotized. After examination at a local military hospital a commission found him mentally unstable or insane. And one and a half month later the unfortunate died of a fulminating illness similar to exposure to high doses of radiation. (1)

The next case deals with another aspect of the encounters and reports of the time, that of ongoing contacts by the same witness and of very powerful and beneficial after-effects on the witness, in contrast with the first case. It is also an example of the supposed aliens or humanoids identifying their place of origin.


2 Location. Rybinsk, Yaroslavl region, Russia
Date: 1989 Time: night

Strange and mysterious events began occurring in the home a local resident named Tamara, unexplained disappearances of metallic objects, sounds and knockings from an unknown origin. At times Tamara and her guests felt the presence of huge tall “men” or entities in the room that were watching all the proceedings. One night Tamara saw a small star-shaped object flying amid her room. Her fear suddenly changed to strange tranquility or expectation of something good about to happen. Several days later, again in the dark, she again saw the “star” floating in midair 50cm above the floor. She watched the star-shaped light stopped by the front door. Once there, a “screen” appeared, resembling that of a TVscreen, but much smaller in size. In both sides of the screen she noticed unknown symbols, and geometrical figures black in color, triangles, squares, circles, etc. Soon after, faces began appearing on the screen; in the bottom section she saw a male face with beautiful, perfect features, with a non-human peachy color skin. He wore a silver cap that was tight fitting on his head. He had large beautiful eyes that stared at Tamara in a benevolent manner, full of understanding. Two other faces were clearly seen above. One of them was humanoid bluish in color, with closely set eyes, which looked intently at Tamara.
This alien began a telepathic conversation with the witness. The other alien face was more Asiatic in appearance, but with round dark eyes without whites. The face was somewhat unpleasant to her; she felt something it was some kind of biological robot. Later UFO researchers from the Yaroslavl group showed her pictures of alien portraits and she was able to identify some of them. She does not remember how much time she communicated and how much information was given to her. Only the feeling of trust and quiet communication remained. She distinctly remembered saying the following words, “I wish to be cured, if that happens, I could help people the rest of my life”. Soon the screen switched off the same way it was originally activated. In the morning nothing was evident of what had occurred the night before, except for the scorched flowers on the windowsill and the witness felt her hands “burning” in an unexplained manner, she wanted to do something, to help someone. Apparently her contacts continued and she was told she was communicating with the forces of light, or representatives from a civilization in the Orion constellation. (2)

The next case again involves a military witness, this time a member of the elite KGB border guards. Again there is no exact date, only 1989:


3 Location. Near Bagrationovsk, Kaliningrad region, Russia
Date: 1989 Time: late night

Near the Polish border a UFO apparently abducted a frontier guard from the Soviet KGB frontier troops. The soldier was on night patrol near the border with Poland when he saw a tall humanoid entity without a neck approaching his location from a nearby forest. The entity appeared completely black, apparently wearing a tight-fitting black outfit. It was very tall no less than 3 meters in height. The stunned soldier challenged the strange figure threatening to shoot, but the entity did not appear to react. The soldier then fired some warning shots into the air, but this also did not make any impression on the strange figure. Finally t
he soldier fired at the figure hoping to wound it or kill it. Incredibly the bullets did not appear to have any effect on the figure and it continued to move towards the soldier. The terrified soldier then apparently lost consciousness. Later all he could remember was seeing a large black cylinder-shaped object in the sky and a bright light. KGB experts inspected the scene of the encounter and found eleven spent cartridges from the soldier’s Kalashnikov. Additionally an area of flattened grass and broken tree branches was found. According to the investigators it appeared that the branches have been broken off as if something had suddenly risen from the ground upwards at very high speed. Large footprints were also located. Other locals have reported fireballs over the forest and strange glows deep within the forest. (3)


The following (alleged) report also involves military witnesses and this time at a ‘secret’ military installation or missile base:


4 Location. Kozelsk strategic missile base, Kaluga region, central Russia
Date: January 10 1989 Time: night

This remarkable incident occurred at a strategic missile site south of Moscow. This base contained SS-11 rockets (Sego class according to NATO) with nuclear warheads. (This regiment was disbanded in 1991). The witnesses were 2 privates and one sergeant. A lone one sentry stood alone on top of the sentry tower (about 6-8meters high) made out of brick and connected to the white one story building the housed the other soldiers. And nearby was positioned the SS-11 shaft or silo. A sergeant and another sentry were in the guard house. Suddenly these heard a very loud knocking sound on the roof of the sentry box. The sergeant then called the sentry on the tower to turn the projector on the roof of the sentry house. He did and reportedly didn’t see anything unusual. Everything was then silent. The projector of light was then returned to its original position (on top of the silo). But again the two other soldiers heard the loud knocking sounds and
suddenly the sentry door was flung open, even though it had been bolted shut. At this point three humanoid entities appeared before the stunned soldiers at the door. All three were about 1.50m in height; one was red in color, and the other two white (they could not tell if the coloring was a result of clothing or skin). The sergeant, who was standing further away from the humanoids attempted to climb up the wall to a window after seeing the creatures. The other soldier stood in the middle of the room staring in shocked disbelief. He looked at the terrified sergeant and then back at the entities and did this one more time but the last time when he looked back at the entities they had disappeared. The door was now closed and somehow bolted shut. After a few minutes the soldiers called the chief of the watch and wrote an official report describing unknown trespassers in a restricted guarded nuclear arms facility. A month later there were rumors that at an air defense installation in Kazakhstan was also visited by three humanoids which managed to take a Kalashnikov rifle from one of the sentries and exchanged it for one without a serial number (?). (4)


The next case is from another city in the former Soviet Union, Rostov-on-Don, which had more than its share of encounters and incidents during the incredible wave of 1989-1990. It has to do with a type of event known to western researchers as a “bedroom visitation” which were very common during the Soviet wave.


5 Location. Rostov-on-Don, Russia
Date: late February 1989 Time: evening

Local resident Ludmila Yanshina was watching the evening television when she suddenly heard the anguish cries of her young daughter, sleeping at the moment in the adjacent room. She rushed in and found the girl crying hysterically. The girl told her mother that while she slept she was suddenly awoken as something pushed her. She sat on the bed filled with fright and looked around the darkened room. There was an area of scattered light directly in front of the bed and
within the light stood a medium height figure, similar to a man wearing a tight fitting diver’s suit, bulging as if filled with air. It had a round large helmet similar to a balloon which left its face exposed. The suit was dark in color. The face was also dark and according to the girl it was apparently a female but with thin long whiskers hanging under the nose. Terrified the girl asked who she was; the only answer was a strange growling sound. Continuing to growl it suddenly rose up into the air floating in the middle of the bedroom. Terrified the girl hid under the blankets and waited. The growling noise stopped and the girl looked from under the blanket hoping that the strange creature had gone. But the figure, now slightly glowing still stood in the room. Terrified the girl now yelled, “Please leave! I am afraid”! Seconds later the head of the humanoid disappeared leaving behind only the bulging body now floating in mid-air, rocking back and forth. The girl continued to scream as the figure moved back and appeared to decrease in size becoming the size of a fly until it completely vanished. The girl continued screaming terrified after that. (5)


The next case contains another common theme during the events of 1989-1990 in the former Soviet Union that is the cure claim by the witness or witnesses after having a close contact with a humanoid or a UFO. This case was among the first known in the west from that region:


6 Location. Krasnoperekopsk, Crimea, Ukraine
Date: April 18 1989 Time: night

A terminally ill patient staying at the cardiology ward of a local hospital
suddenly felt a strong wind which penetrated the room, even though the doors were closed. A dazzling white light and a man dressed in white then appeared. The man’s eyes radiated a brilliant light. The witness asked where he was from and was told they were from the “tenth dimension.” She was then told that she would soon be able to walk, after that was said the man and the light disappeared. The next day other witnesses saw strange white and red lights moving slowly along the body of the terminally ill patient, who then heard a loud clear voice telling her to “get up and leave.” She was able to do so and is now apparently cured. (6)


It is interesting to note that the entity or humanoid did not claimed to have been an extraterrestrial but that he hailed from the ‘tenth dimension’, wherever that may be.

The next incident was from the former Soviet republic of the Ukraine now an independent country and an area which experienced hundreds of UFO and humanoid encounters during 1989 through 1992:


7 Location. Near Zhitlovka, Dnepropetrovsk region, Ukraine
Date: April 30 1989 Time: 2300

During numerous UFO observations by local residents of the “Pobeda” (Victory) collective farm, between the villages of Zhitlovka and Kudashevo several boys noticed t
hree entities dressed in entirely bright red clothes; one was taller than the other two, appeared dwarf-like. When they boys attempted to sneak up to the entities in order to obtain a closer look, they experienced severe headaches, and one boy began bleeding from his nose. The boys became frightened and fled the area. The UFO observed by the other witnesses, was disc-shaped, with blinking, blue, red and green-violet lights. The disk emitted 2 fiery beams of light and zoomed up into the sky at high speed. Other boys watched a smaller disk separate from the larger one, and then flying away with the larger object. (7)

Of course Vladimir Azhaha was at the time one the pioneering Ufologists in the disintegrating Soviet Union. The next report represents yet another old Soviet republic which eventually also declared its independence that is the republic of Georgia which was still another region ripe with close encounters and UFO reports during 1989-1990.

8 Location. Near Ortachala, south of Tblissi, Georgia
Date: May-June 1989 Time: evening

Several witnesses, including 9-year old Evgeniy Nikolaevich Gigauri and an older friend observed the flight of a round silvery object near this hamlet. When the object approached their position in appeared to be a silver oval-shaped craft that was semi-transparent in the center. They could see
a humanoid entity inside. The entity resembled an elderly man wearing silvery clothing, which emitted a faint light. The man was in a sitting position, typical that of a driver or chauffeur, but visibly he appeared not to be operating any controls---his immovable hands were positioned on his knees or on some panel that was only faintly visible. No other details of the object’s interior could be seen. The object was about 1.5-2 meters high and flew very low over the witness’s heads. The UFO turned slowly and flew towards the mountains south of Tblissi. The youngsters rushed to tell their parents what they had seen. (8)


The next case in our list also involves military personnel and appears to have been an abduction from the heavily visited area of Rostov on Don:

9 Location. Rostov-on-Don, Russia
Date: May 1989 Time: unknown

Two soldiers were returning to their unit, which was the radio or communications center of the city located on the outskirts between the Northern cemetery and the former city dump. But only one of the soldiers made it back to his unit. And he could not understand or remember what had occurred to the other soldier. The second soldier returned the next day around the same time. He was in a confused state. At first he could only remember that he had lost sight of the other soldier and
was very stunned when he was told he had been gone for 24 hours. Later after resting and relaxing he remembered appearing inside a lighted sphere. There he met strange entities wearing white clothing and carrying strange devices. The entities communicated with him telepathically and he understood them perfectly. The entities apparently gave him something to eat and then sent him back. He came to his senses on his way back to the communications center around the same place where he had lost sight of his partner. In an attempt to prove the reality of the event the soldier drew sketches of what he saw inside the sphere. He was then sent to a rehabilitation center in the Moscow area. Later his superiors decided that he his mental status was “troubling”. Soon after his discharge papers arrived at the communications post and he was never seen or heard from again. (9)

It is interesting to note how military witnesses were treated after these anomalous encounters, some like the above witness ‘were never heard from again’. The next case is from another one of those Eastern European countries that were part of the changes to come and also experienced numerous encounters and sightings. This case appears involve an atypical bedroom visitation.

10 Location. Gyomaendrod, Hungary
Date: May 1989 Time: night

A man was woken up by strange muttering and whispering sounds. He then turned to see standing at the foot of his bed a bizarre figure about 130cm tall, with
large ears and wearing green coveralls. The creature was staring at him with large unblinking eyes. Terrified he grabbed a shovel next to his bed and attempted to strike the figure. As he lowered the shovel it suddenly stopped in mid-air as if striking an invisible wall. The figure then vanished in plain sight. (10)

The next case also involves an Eastern European country which was also part of the upcoming changes and of the unrelenting UFO wave in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It seems to have been a high strangeness incident involving an otherworldly journey:


11 Location. Katnik, Bulgaria
Date: May 18 1989 Time: 23:00

The witness, Jiril Jakimov who had previously taken photos of apparent UFOs (in February) was picking herbs in order to make some infusions when he saw a UFO proceeding slowly over a nearby chestnut tree. The object came towards him and Jiril became frightened as the object started to turn just above him. He was able to hear some bizarre crackling noise emanating from the core of the machine also the object was emitting light. He then attempted to take a photo but the camera suddenly failed. Suddenly
a noise struck his ears and he felt a violent pain in his skull. He then saw four small ‘asterisks’ in rotation like a swarm of bees, they were turning above his head, and he felt ill. At this moment he perceived a whitish blue mist in the sky and small stars, and then the light source disappeared. Suddenly he found himself in a mist and when he opened his eyes he was in a sort of desolate landscape with large craters and some bluish-white mountains in the distance.

There was thousands of flying light sources as well as some small humanoid beings of about 1m in height. Others were bluish with green eyes, and others were bounding along like grasshoppers, resembling robotic movements. Next he was transported towards a kind of laboratory having the appearance of crystal from which shone numerous light sources like stars, the small blue creatures attempted to communicate with him. Next the luminous source, which he had seen at the beginning of the encounter reappeared and carried him away. It was as if he was sucked up in the midst of the light and there he heard an incomprehensible language.
Suddenly he felt the hardness of the ground on which he was lying and everything had disappeared. He was not capable of estimating the time which had elapsed between the moment when he saw the object and when he found himself lying down on the ground, to this day he is still unable to say. (11)


The next event is beyond high strangeness, perhaps several levels or so, but it seems to have been the norm in most of the reported cases of contact in the former Soviet Union. There is no exact date only that it occurred in the summer of 1989 and again the witness was military personnel in this case a submarine officer:

12 Location. Far East, Russia 
Date: Summer 1989 Time: daytime

A Soviet Naval Submarine officer, D.A. had gone on a hunting expedition into the taiga and ascended to the top of a hill when they noticed something resembling a rolled up waterproof canvas-tent. Having forgotten their own at home they helped themselves to this seemingly abandoned tent. They prepared to spend the night there near a bonfire. Soon t
hey noticed a strange cloud that hovered over them for a long time. The cloud was very low, just below head level, & perpendicular to the ground. D.A. struck the “cloud” with his fist and felt a strong repellent force. Then, taking a running jump he flew shoulder first into the cloud. After flying through the cloud the witness found himself in an unknown location. While on the hill it had been evening and cold, the place where he was now was covered with bright sunshine and hot, he also felt hot sand under his feet. Instead of bushes he saw trees resembling palms. He could not see a river anywhere but saw what appeared to be a large ocean; he was apparently standing close to seashore. Soon D.A. saw an “amazing car” approach his location, he had never seen such a similar vehicle before. There were 3 persons in the vehicle, a man and two women. They greeted the witness in perfect Russian and invited him for a short drive. He agreed, feeling no fear just curiosity. Soon they arrived at what appeared to be a kind of “laboratory.” When they entered the lab the strangers called him over “Hey military man” (he was wearing a military shirt) and kindly asked him to take some “tests”, which he agreed to do. He was asked many different questions which D.A. patiently answered. He then dared to ask the strangers who they were. He was told that they hailed from the 21st century (what year?) and added that if he wanted he could stay with them. D.A. refused mentioning his wife, family and children. “Well, many people disappear (!)”, said the strangers and soon brought him back into the very same blanket-like cloud that hovered close to the ground at the same location. There D.A. asked another question, “Here we have many troubles, changes, “Perestroika” etc”, what will happen?” The stranger then assured him that everything would be fine. He passed through the cloud without any hindrance and appeared in the same hill. His friend met him in a very excited state, screaming, “Where have you been? Didn’t you hear me calling you?” He was obviously very irate. They then both sat near the fire and talked about what had occurred. Suddenly a wave of fear swept over the men, and both gazed towards the bushes; they believed that the origin of the fear was located within those bushes. D.A.’s friend took out his rifle and yelled to whomever he thought was hiding behind the bushes, threatening to shoot him or it. Nothing was heard in response. He shot into the bushes and the fear suddenly dissipated. (12)

In the above case the ‘strangers’ whoever they could have been apparently knew of the changes that were occurring or about to occur soon. The next case was reported by one of the first western UFO researchers who traveled to the former Soviet Union after the fall of the curtain that was of course the veteran Jacques Vallee. The case is indeed bizarre and has more of a supernatural slant than an ‘extraterrestrial’ context.

13 Location. Gorky Province, Russia
Date: Summer 1989 Time: evening

In a remote wooded area the daughter of a forester was sitting on a windowsill in her cabin with her back to an open field when suddenly two black-gloved hands grabbed her by the waist and tried to drag her outside. She turned her head and saw that arms were apparently holding her alone, seemingly attached to a vague and diffused area. Her dog began howling and rushed towards the window. She was then released, her father then arrived armed with a gun, but the intruder had by now already gone. (13)

The next case in our list was one of the first cases that appeared in the western media but was mostly ignored it again involved a number of children just like the Voronezh events of September:

14 Location. Konantsevo, Vologda region, Russia
Date: June 6 1989 Time: afternoon

A group of children playing outside the village observed an approaching luminous sphere in the sky. The sphere landed on a meadow and rolled next to a nearby river. The sphere then seemed to split open and a tall headless figure with long arms and wearing dark clothing emerged. At that moment the sphere vanished and the being began walking towards the village, but he also seemed to fade away. Moments later three more similar spheres landed and similar beings emerged and they also became invisible. (14)

The next case involves strange figures that appeared to have the capability to ‘walk on water’.

15 Location. Kharovsk, Vologda region Russia
Date: June 6 1989 Time: night

45-year old V. A. Kurkov and his son were fishing on a local lake on a boat about 300 meters from shore. The weather was bad, with strong wind and large waves. Suddenly they saw what appeared to be two human like silhouettes. At first Kurkov did not pay much attention to them, and thought that there were some strange fishermen who dared to fish in the center of the lake in the middle of a storm. Then he stood up and didn’t see a boat under the strange “fishermen” which appeared to be standing right on the surface of the water at full height. Both men watched stunned as the shiny figures appeared to approach their location, walking on the water. Suddenly the man-like figure that was closer became extremely shiny. The light was so bright that it hurt the witnesses’ eyes, as the figures began flashing brightly the two men turned their boat around and began moving to shore. Then the figures transformed into a bright light that floated along the coast of the lake and disappeared. (15)


The next case comes from the city of Leningrad (soon to be known again as St. Petersburg) and it involves a type of very tall almost gigantic humanoid type entity which was very frequently reported during the 1989-1990 wave, it was also one of those instances in which a technique known a ‘biolocation’ was used by researchers.
http://biolocation.com/theory.htm 

Figure 2. Type of humanoid frequently reported during the 1989-1990 wave in the former Soviet Union.

16 Location. Leningrad (St Petersburg) Russia
Date: June 19 1989 Time: 01:00 a.m.

Tamara Mikhailovna Krasikova a worker at the local “LenKarz” plant was sitting on a bench near house number 70 on Farforovskiy Street. To right of the houses is the Leningrad-Moscow railway. The sky was dark and covered with clouds, there wasn’t anybody else around. Suddenly from the railway station a woman about 35-years of age, in a dark green jacket carrying a handbag approached and said, “I shall sit a while, I will rest before going home”. So both women sat talking. The last train soon past by them. Suddenly from above house # 64 a red light began flashing illuminating half of the houses in an eerie red light. Both women then arose from the bench thinking somebody had flung something burning from one of the trains. However as they watched closely they saw a saucer shaped craft quickly descending from the sky. Before touching the ground, the saucer put down two landing props and landed on them. At once, the top of the saucer-shaped craft began expanding, inflating like a rubber ball. Light from the landed saucer illuminated the surroundings like daytime. Suddenly near the saucer a very tall figure or humanoid appeared. Where it had come from the women could not be sure because of the strong light. Near this first humanoid a second similar figure but much shorter appeared and near them two or three similar smaller figures were moving. The women could not see any exact features as a result of the blinding light. The tall alien figure then separated from the other figures and walked towards the direction of the two women. Terrified the women in the green jacket turned and ran from the area. However Tamara Krasikova who also wanted to escape was unable to move because of her weak legs. So she remained where she stood. The tall alien figure quickly approached and then passed by Krasikova totally ignoring her. The humanoid was twice the height of a normal man (3.5m). He had a powerful body, with wide shoulders, a short neck with a large head but of normal proportion to the rest of the body. The humanoid’s face was wide, white and smooth. His chin was round. On his eyes the humanoid wore black rectangular glasses or goggles. The alien’s forehead was not visible since it was covered by a skintight helmet or hood; the ears were also not visible. The humanoid’s hands were normal and it was wearing black gloves. It bent its legs as it walk like a normal human, but the humanoid’s feet were larger than a normal human resembling large flippers. When the alien’s feet touched the ground, red shining balls rolled from under its feet and then disappeared. The witness didn’t remember hearing any sound or noises, everything seemed silent. The humanoid did not stop near the witness and continued to walk between some nearby houses using very long strides. He walked between houses 64 and 66 and looked to the right and then the left before continuing on quickly disappearing from sight. Krasikova tried to see where the giant had gone to but could not see him anywhere. Krasikova then went home and looked out the window and everything was now gone, the saucer, the humanoids, and the light had disappeared. Around the same time a worker at the local plant had seen a figure of huge height wearing black tight-fitting overalls.


Biolocation research conducted in the area by V.P. Kochegarov and L.K. Grokhov revealed the presence of several abnormal areas which had not been connected with the described events. A number of local residents observed a luminescence in the sky and other flying objects with caused strong interference to local television telecasting. (16)


While the next case did not actually involved a humanoid or even a humanoid entity it illustrates the types of events being reported almost on a daily basis throughout the vast territory of the former Soviet Union, there was undoubtedly something weird afoot during the time of incredible changes occurring in the region at the time:


17 Location. Near Togliatti, Russia
Date: June 26 1989 Time: 21:15

A strange sight was reported by several witnesses in the area as they spotted in the storm clouds an almost perfect square ‘hole’. A bright beam of light appeared around its perimeter it flared up and then went out in flash. After that in the square ‘window’ on the clouds a picture appeared. It was of a landscape of a bay bounded by a low ridge, surrounded by forested hills. A chain of sand dunes next to the waters is also visible. Over this ‘foreign’ world the sky appeared to be lit up much brighter than ours. Within 15 minutes the field of view is slowly rotated in the horizontal plane, hiding the hills and waters of the bay. Suddenly above in the foreign sky appeared a set of black dots, which are not possible to see in detail, soon the clouds began to move covering up this strange opening. (17)


The next case describes a type of entity that was reported on very few occasions in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe during the 1989-1990 wave, we are talking of course about ‘grays’ or gray type entity very popular in western abduction accounts specially in the U.S.A. The fate of the witnesses is also a matter of concern:

18 Location. Near Vladivostok, Russia
Date: July 1989 Time: unknown

12 witnesses observed the appearance of strange entities cavorting on the seashore near the city of Vladivostok. The witness reported that the appearance of the creatures was “repugnant”. The witnesses described the entities as typical “grays” about 1 meter in height, with absolutely hairless heads, and lipless mouths. At first the witnesses thought they had stumbled upon a group of circus freaks dwarfs but upon closer inspection realized that they were indeed totally alien in nature. During the next 7 years investigators for VAUFON attempted to track all 12 of the witnesses with startling grim results. 3 of the witnesses had been killed in car accidents, 5 had been diagnosed with brain tumors in which two had already required surgery. Two others were located in a mental institution, and the two remaining others had apparently disappeared without a trace. (18)

The next case is again from the former Soviet Republic of the Ukraine and is from the Crimean Peninsula which had more than its share of bizarre encounters and sightings:

19 Location. Simferopol, Crimea, Ukraine
Date: July 1989 Time: 04:00 a.m.

The 50-year old female witness living in the western part of town in a multi-storied house suddenly felt strong chest pains and walked to the balcony for a breath of fresh air. Suddenly she noticed a globe-shaped object descending from the sky to a nearby yard. The object was about 3-5 meters in diameter. Three humanoid figures stepped out of the object and walked off to different sides of the object. The aliens were tall, about 2 meters in height, dressed in tight-fitting silver suits. More details could not be seen since it was dark and the witness was dozens of meters away. Five minutes later all three aliens returned to the object, entered it and the craft zoomed up and vanished. The witness apparently woke her husband who apparently also witnessed the event. (19)

The following event is one of the first cases reported in the Voronezh region and it involves a theme that was repeated on numerous occasions in dozens of contacts reported in the 1989-1990 wave, that of dire warnings of upcoming ecological disasters on earth, or enormous unavoidable earth changes:


20 Location. Semidesyatnoye, Khokholskiy area, Voronezh region Russia
Date: July 1989 Time: afternoon

Farm equipment operator Fedor Ivanovich Molokanov was out in the fields operating a tractor when suddenly and without any apparent reason the engine stalled. He exited the cab and looked under the hood to check what the problem was. Suddenly he heard a voice coming from behind him, “Your machine is Ok, I made it stop working, and I wanted to have a talk with you.” Turning around he was confronted by a figure wearing silvery overalls, bronze-colored boots and a helmet on his head. The humanoid was about 3 meters in height, and looked strangely one-dimensional. The stranger spoke again, “Your planet---was the most excellent planet known to us in this part of the universe.” And then he added cryptically, “However you have brought it to a disastrous state. Life on Earth will die. In 20 years an ecological disaster awaits the earth (2009?).”

He told the astonished witness that if he agreed to go with them, he would be saved. The witness demurred, explaining to the stranger that he was an old sick man of 60 years. The stranger then pointed out that in his planet the average lifespan was 130 years. Terrified the witness waved his hands angrily and told the stranger to leave. Moments later the humanoid pointed a tube-like device toward the witness and then walked into a nearby landed semi-transparent bluish object, a hatch opened on the object and a hissing sound was heard, the humanoid entered the craft and sat on a chair then craft then soundlessly melted into the sky. After the encounter, Molokanov refused to leave the house for several days and was taken to the local hospital suffering from hypertension. He only told his closest associates what had occurred. (20)

The next case is also from a former Soviet Republic, this time the Baltic country of Estonia:

21 Location. Kohtu, Harju County Estonia
Date: July 1989 Time: evening

A woman and her adult daughter were watching TV when they heard a loud knock at the window. Looking at the window they saw the upper body of a man. They thought that the intruder must have been standing on a ladder. Both women approached the window and obtained a closer look at the man. He wore a dark gray diver’s suit, which had a broad white band that ran over his shoulders and arm. The tall figure was quickly retreating from the window moving diagonally away. They could not discern any facial features. At one point the strange figure turned around with its back to the witnesses and seemed to quickly glide away from the area. (21)

The next case is also from Rostov-on-Don and appears to have involved the type of humanoid known in familiar UFO parlance as a “Nordic” type entity:

Figure 4. Sample of Nordic type 'alien' entity.

22 Location. Rostov-on-Don, Russia
Date: July 1989 Time: 2100

A local woman named Natalya Vladimirovna living in the Chkalova area of the city, noticed a bright green light in the sky, it was funnel shaped broader at the top and narrower at the bottom, it shed light towards the ground. Over the light she noticed a round oval-shaped or disk-shaped object, encircled by a rim, with a blue greenish circumference and several (9-10) blue lights on its surface. Natalya’s 5-year old son later told her that he saw a huge disk with a cabin that landed on a nearby copse. The disk landed on 3 props, it had sloping edges and a flattened cupola on top. Several humanoids dressed in black coveralls exited the craft and were doing something near it. The boy described the humanoids as being human like, tall and with blond hair (Nordic type). Both witnesses possibly experienced abduction and missing time. (22)

The next report is one of the best known contact cases from the Ukraine and the former Soviet Union during the period of 1989-1990.

23 Location. Kiev, Ukraine
Date: July 4 1989 Time: afternoon

Two women, one named Vera Ignatenko, and a young girl were walking along a canal near some woods when they saw three men approaching on a strange silvery “boat” in the canal. The beings were man-like, wore shiny collarless suits, both had identical pale faces, long golden hair, and large radiant eyes. The beings approached the trio and spoke in pure ancient Slavic language (a defunct language spoken in old Russia) apparently wanting the witnesses to come with them to their “planet.” The beings claimed that they took one person from earth each day. The beings then walked with the women to a nearby hovering silvery barrel-shaped craft with an antenna on top. The women attempted to run away but could not, feeling a tingling sensation and were unable to scream either. The beings apparently decided against taking the three women and released them, they then entered the object via a stepladder. Before leaving, the beings demonstrated a holographic model of the solar system with a tenth planet to the witnesses and warned that electromagnetic emissions from and radio signals being transmitted into space attracted many negative alien cultures who are arriving on earth uninvited with the aim to exploit the planet for their own interests. The craft then left quickly and silently. Ignatenko was to have further contacts. (23)


The next case details another contact case this time from the former Soviet republic of Georgia; it involves some bizarre elements as similar cases were now coming from all corners of the ‘Empire’:

Figure 5. Description of entity in the Georgia contact case.

24 Location. Mtacminda Park, Tbilissi, Georgia (USSR)
Date: July 4 1989 Time: 2100

The main witness was driving a girlfriend home when he experienced car trouble. He left to get water for the radiator and upon returning the girl was gone. Near the park he saw a woman that was apparently trying to stop the car, he kept driving looked back and the woman was gone. He kept driving when the engine of the car suddenly stopped again. He exited the car and felt a strange oppressive atmosphere in the air. He then began to walk on the dark road. Suddenly 200 meters ahead he noticed a landed silvery disc-shaped object standing on three metallic legs. The craft was surrounded by multi-colored lights and at the bottom there were stairs and illuminated windows. Standing 15 meters away from the craft were four three-meter tall man-like figures. The witness felt attracted to the figures, and was not scared, he kept walking towards them. One of the figures approached the witness and attempted to establish contact, speaking in Russian the humanoid asked several questions. The humanoids wore a silvery uniform that completely covered them except for their faces, a dark belt, and dark boots. They had dark oval eyes and very small noses. The witness indicated that he was late getting home, one of the humanoids then entered the object and retrieved a strange hand held device with different colored lights and hieroglyphic like inscriptions. The witness was made to understand that it was some type of phone and apparently he was able to dial his home number. The humanoid then took the instrument away and walked back into the object. Coming out he told the witness that they wanted him to go with them. Inside the object the witness saw a TV like apparatus, where he apparently was able to see his internal organs working. After a while one of the humanoids told the witness that he was free to go home. He exited the object and sitting in his car saw the object retrieve the stairs and lift into the air. Emitting a low humming sound the object shot quickly away. The car then started and the witness drove home. The witness noticed that all four humanoids had a red colored bulb in their chest area that was apparently used as a transmitting and translating device. (24)


As the year 1989 progressed appeared it appeared that things were getting out of control in more ways than one in the former Soviet Union as the following report illustrates:

25 Location. Solnechny Perm region, Russia
Date: middle of July 1989 Time: unknown

At a summer camp several children encountered humanoids with large eyes in a wooded area. One of the boys threw stones at one of the creatures, but was shot at by some type of beam or laser that set the surrounding fields on fire. None of the boys were apparently injured. Around the same time motorists in the same area reported seeing what appeared to be the figure of a girl walking on a road as they approached it they were horrified to see that it was a creature with a bear-like snout instead of a face. Children at nearby Kukushtane reported seeing a landed saucer-shaped type craft and several “Minotaurs” walking around it. (25)

The next case is from another of the former Soviet Republics turned independent country in this case, Belarus, which was not immune to the changes and other anomalous events in the region:

26 Location. “Belevic” State Farm, Mogilev, Belarus (USSR)
Date: July 25 1989 Time: afternoon

The witness, Vasily Zaitsev had driven his tractor to the edge of a birch forest near the farm in order to pick some mushrooms. After finishing he came out and was surprised to see at about 200 meters away a bronze colored object shaped like a child’s top, flattened on top and bottom hovering at about 4 meters from the ground. Thinking he might be hallucinating he rubbed his eyes but the object was still there. Near the object stood two beings both about 2 ½ meters tall also wearing shiny bronze colored uniforms. While Vasily watched, his hair stood on end and afraid he hid behind a nearby haystack and watched the scene from there.

The two beings stood around for a while and then returned to their hovering craft. Soon there was a sound like a muffled exhaust and the mysterious object moved sideways, gained speed and disappeared from sight. Later Zaitsev and a co-worker searched for traces of the object and found none. (26)


As the month of August came along things were evidently becoming stranger and the reports appeared to become more outlandish and unbelievable. This is from a region that before 1986 there were few known reports (in the west) and even fewer reports of humanoid encounters, of course with a few exceptions thanks to the work of pioneering researcher Felix Ziegel. The following reports illustrate the absurdity and incredible bizarre nature of the alleged contacts:

Figure 6. Perhaps what the Russian female entity looked like.

27 Location. Sharya, near Yaroslavl, Russia
Date: August 1989 Time: 10:00 a.m.

Two witnesses, including E. V., were collecting mushrooms in a field when they suddenly came upon an injured hare. One of the witnesses picked up the hare to see what was wrong when she heard English speech from behind her. Looking up she saw a woman wearing a gray suit and brown boots. She had European features with long flowing brown hair and gray skin. While attempting to communicate with the stranger E. V. was unable to understand her and heard various incomprehensible dialects. Then the woman appeared to press something invisible on her breast, and immediately the witness heard different speech in several languages, Georgian, Baltic and finally in Russian. The woman said, “Do you love animals?” The witness said yes and began petting the hare then fed it some pastry. She offered the stranger a pastry, which she gladly accepted and ate, she then asked the witness what it was, since she had founded very tasteful. The woman then turned her attention on the mushrooms and asked for some for her to take. At this point the witness noticed a man standing nearby, similarly dressed. The woman made a gesture to the man not to approach. One of the witnesses then invited the strange woman to come with them, but she declined. Soon a luminous screen with images appeared on the woman’s breast and she ordered the witnesses to turn around and walk away, not to look back. Obediently they did and as they walked away they perceived a strong vibration. When they turned around both strangers had disappeared. A local inspector had reported seeing a strange “cloud” exhibiting bizarre behavior over the forest. The next day, footprints clearly showing the strangers footwear were discovered in the field. (27)

28 Location. Vologda region, Russia
Date: August 1989 Time: daytime

Vyacheslav Gorbunov who collected pitch in the swampy areas of the region for the manufacture of turpentine and other chemicals lived in an isolated cabin when one day, in broad daylight he encountered a strange humanoid creature that approached him, the witness was not frightened and reported that the appearance of the humanoid reminded him of a “dolphin”. He had blue skin and was slightly taller than an average human. The humanoid communicated with Gorbunov through telepathy and was invited to a nearby clearing where a round silvery object stood on the ground. Once inside Gorbunov met another peasant woman who had been apparently also invited onboard. Soon the humanoid approached both Gorbunov and the unknown woman and invited both to accompany them to their planet to “live” there. The woman immediately agreed, but Gorbunov refused and told the humanoid that he had family in Odessa and could not leave them behind. In a few minutes Gorbunov and the humanoid exited the silvery object and the witness found himself in a totally different location apparently in another planet, where he saw numerous peaceful scenes, of children playing, meadows and water fountains. Soon Gorbunov asked to be returned home and the aliens deposited him back near his cabin in the forest. After returning home Gorbunov was no longer a recluse and decided that his mission in life was to help people, in less than 2 years he began to draw beautiful surreal scenes apparently of otherworldly landscapes from alien planets. His paintings were exhibited in numerous locations throughout the Russian Federation. (28)

We are left to ask, What became of the ‘peasant’ woman who decided to remain behind?
This next report also involves a military witness:

29 Location. Olga settlement, Balyuzak Peninsula, Russia
Date: August 1989 Time: 2200

The witness, soldier P. Ivus was outside washing his military vehicle when she noticed at about 300-400 meters away a bright light in the forest area. Soon out of the forest, a figure stepped out. It seemed to move rapidly rocking from side to side; its height was about 2.30 meters, with long dangling arms, and a head directly on its shoulders with no visible neck. It was wearing a tight-fitting white one-piece suit. The witness watched in shock unable to move as the figure pass behind a knoll. Then from another direction three more similar figures appeared, these moved about rather quickly, seemingly scrutinizing the fields. At this point a friend of the witness drove up in a car and honked several times, this apparently frightened the creatures, which soon disappeared into the forest. The next morning the witness found large tracks or footprints in the soft soil measuring about 45 cm in length. (29)

This next case investigated by veteran Russian Ufologist Mikhail Gershtein among others has sinister implications to say the least:

30 Location. Malye Shory, Lebyazhskiy area, Kirov region, Russia
Date: August 1989 Time: night

A local resident of this village on the banks of the River Vyatka woke up one sultry night to drink some water. The window of the kitchen was opened and after satisfying her thirst she saw someone walking beyond the window near the wall of the kitchen. The night was light and there had been a slight rain and under the moonlight she could see a tall thin “man” wearing a shiny tight-fitting rubber suit dark in color. The suit covered all the man’s body and his head except for his face and hands. His face appeared quite common, generally human, with white skin. Something resembling a hood covered his head. The witness noticed the disproportional length of the humanoid’s hands. The man stood on the flowerbed prodding the earth with something resembling a syringe, about a 1 meter in length and about 15-20cm in diameter. The woman immediately thought that the stranger was a “typical alien” and dared to step out of her house. The stranger immediately stopped what he was doing and moved away from the flowerbed. The woman then asked, “Why do you to come here? Why do you worry us? The alien answered, “We brought you a contagion. But you die slowly. So now we brought you another contagion, a more effective one” (!!). The humanoid spoke in perfect Russian in a normal human voice. His behavior was quite, but he never let the woman come close to him and began walking away towards the opposite plot of land near the river. The woman followed him and screamed bitterly, “Why is that, why?” She then heard a voice from afar, “It must be done in that matter”. The encounter lasted for about 2-3 minutes. In the morning decided that maybe the incident had been a dream and also failed to find any traces in the flowerbed, and her husband slept throughout the whole episode. However the investigator (Kazakov) found several trees that had been broken and dried up in what appeared to have been a typical UFO “landing site”. (30)


Not to the left-out the following alleged incident involves a UFO crash and retrieval, just one of the several such incidents that surfaced during the period:

31 Location. Near Kapustin Yar range, Astrakhan or Volgograd region, Russia
Date: August 12 1989 Time: night

Shot downed by another UFO during a dogfight an extraterrestrial disk was damaged by some type of alien beam weapon. The craft lost control and fell at very high speed on a flat terrain outside the State Central Test Range # 4 at Kapustin Yar. The crash was probably noticed by military personnel or reported to them and a retrieval team was sent to the range. UFO observations over Kapustin Yar State Central Test Range # 4 on the night of July 28-29 1989 had caused a stir (confirmed by authentic KGB documents).

This was another case and the military was informed about the downed disk-shaped object partially embedded on theground, in a tilted position. The disk was about 5 to 8 meters in diameter, convexo, shaped like a lens. Its surface was ideally smooth, seamless, silver metallic, indicating evident non-terrestrial technology, with a broad and slight not jutting gradual dome on top connected in the same line with the rest of the hull and a broad cylindrical base. The bottom section and one side of the object were substantially damaged by the hard impact, with numerous dents and a narrow curved crack on its side. The incident was immediately reported to the Minister of Defense of the USSR Marshall Dmitriy T. Yazov and the chairman of the KGB, etc. Soon a special order was issued by the Military Space Forces of the USSR to the Commander of Kapustin Yar range to dispatch a retrieval team to the crash site. (Mr. Pavel Laptinov of Saint Petersburg saw the written order himself in 1999).The operationwas conducted to isolate the rest of the military on the range from any knowledge of the incident, and to enlist only specially selected people called from outside (mostly from Moscow) to the recovery and research procedures. Under the cover of night the crash site was immediately cordoned off and the disk was removed to an isolated hangar on the territory of Kapustin Yar Sate Central Range # 4. The object was then covered by anti-radiation foil & tarpaulin. The research site where the disk had been hidden was almost completely isolated from the rest of the range in order to prevent any leakage of information. The scientific research military team was gathered in top secrecy in a short amount of time after the incident and had been dispatched by airplane to the range to study the disk inside the hangar. The research team made different attempts to penetrate inside the disk, using different equipment. They tried strong drills, diamond tip ones, gas cutting, but nothing helped, the hull appeared very durable. Finally expensive and heavy laser equipment that was brought to the site helped. They concentrated their efforts on the crack in the object’s side and expanded it by laser. The hull consisted of 4 layers. In about 20 days they made the hole large enough enabling the research team to penetrate inside, who were dressed in protective suits and gas masks. Soon the research team finally penetrated inside the craft. The object consisted of 3 levels inside, an engine compartment on the lower level; the main power plant apparently self-destructed automatically. The main control room was on the 2nd level had a screen, a main control panel positioned in a semicircle with multicolored rectangular key-shaped buttons 2 x 5 cm in size, like keys on a piano, positioned in 3 rows and 4 small round chairs. Identity of the dome-shaped cylinder in the center of the cabin’s floor was later identified as a holographic projector. The top level was like a garret, apparently an air lock. Four alien bodies were found on level 2, all dead, mostly next to the chairs. The aliens were about 1.3, 1.4m in height, two were the same and a third was slightly taller, about 1.5-1.6m. They had large hairless heads covered with helmets with 4 webbed fingers, greenish-yellow-brown skin, and thin long arms, like that of a monkey, long narrow legs and necks, huge slanted frog like eyes covered by black eye lenses, just a protrusion with 2 openings on the place of a nose, small and narrow slit-like mouth, tiny ears pressed to the rear part of their heads, and long thin hands. They were dressed in tight-fitting and very durable suits of metallic silver color with a violet tint, with belts and round circles on their chest areas. They had long elbow length gloves. The suits were removed with difficulty, along with the silver-greenish boots and gloves. One of the bodies was substantially damaged by the hard impact. In general, the beings were similar to those found in the disk that crashed in Latvia in the early 1990s. In extreme secrecy the bodies were immediately removed from the disk, placed inside the hangar and put into special support containers to preserve biological materials. These containers were then loaded on a military cargo aircraft and moved to an aerodrome in the Moscow area. From there the bodies were removed to a special KGB biomedical laboratory outside the town of Solnechnogorsk northwest of Moscow (as well as other alien bodies from other UFO crashes, Poland, Latvia, etc) where they were autopsied and hidden in underground bunkers by only 4 officers. During the autopsy yellow-greenish alien blood appeared quickly reacting with oxygen, apparently copper-based. A Soviet engineering team succeeded in a detailed study of the disk from inside, but the technology was hard to understand. Metal alloys were properly analyzed, different parts were taken from the disk and moved outside the range to different military industrial and R&D institutions for analyses (including Vnukovo alien material research underground lab southwest of Moscow). The disk was not moved to the research centers in populated areas by reasons of secrecy. In around 1991 or 1992 the disk had been removed from Kapustin Yar range to Novaya Zemlya Island base in the Arctic region (a former nuclear State Central Range # 6) where is still hidden today in a specially constructed artificial cave. The alien bodies were also taken there. Other UFOs have also been stored at this location, including a small non-piloted probe which crashed and was recovered in Latvia in either 1991 or 1992. (31)


The next case involved an encounter which allegedly occurred deep underground in a mine and describes two unusual looking humanoids:

32 Location. Donetsk, Ukraine
Date: August 27 1989 Time: 03:00 a.m.

This fascinating encounter took place deep within a mine 1070 meters below the earth’s surface. An electrical worker in one of the mines was working the night shift when he suddenly saw two strangers standing at the end of the electric train depot. The witness stood behind the electric train control station and soon after the strangers appeared he was seized by an uncontrollable fear, something that had never occurred to him before. Using his instinct he hid behind the control box closely watching the strangers. The figures moved slowly along the garage, stopping from time to time and studying different areas and equipment located there. Finally the witness gathered up enough courage to confront the strangers and walked out of his hiding place. Upon noticing him the strangers stopped. Trying to sound as confident as possible the witness yelled at them, “Who are you? What are you doing here?” And he began to walk slowly towards the pair. After taking several steps he looked closely and literally became numb with fear as he realized that the entities standing before him were not human. They were short creatures, dwarf-like with sallow facial complexions, and features he could not recognize as human. Both were dressed in silvery colored coveralls and their chest they had lighted circles and luminous dots circling around, like the screen of an oscillograph. After standing for a while, the entities turned around and walked away, quickly moving away floating just above the ground. In several seconds they vanished behind a bend on the underground tunnel. (32) 

The last case to be summarized from August (there is no space or time to include all the cases) also involved a military officer and a very complex abduction scenario:

33 Location. Saratov Region, Russia
Date: end of August 1989 Time: 2105-2115

One of the military officers from the Shihany chemical weapons test range close to the Volga River was returning home from duty in the control post when suddenly for no apparent reason as if hypnotized or narcotized a feeling of calm fell over him. In a trance-like joyful state he walked a long distance from the base and noticed a rainbow-like object in the air and heard a voice inside his head, “Do not be afraid”. When he came closer he could see a dome giving off a dim bluish light. He then felt as if an invisible escalator that took him into the air and sucked him into the middle of the dome-shaped object. He appeared in a spacious circular room, arena-like and heard the voice again, “Don’t worry. You will not be harmed”. At this point he felt afraid, and kept saying to himself that it was just a dream. But he again heard the voice, “No, this is no dream. Everything is real.” When looked around he could see only wave-like walls, as if they were made out of light. In the center of the room there was a kind of round table or pedestal, with a heap of stones on it that gave off a myriad of rainbow colored light. He had the uncanny feeling that time had stopped; he had no idea how long he had been in the room. Suddenly he noticed 2 silhouettes that seemed to appear out of nowhere. They did not approach from anywhere they just appeared suddenly with a kind of fog or shroud enveloping them. He could see that they had gray-greenish faces with a hint of nostrils (flat faces with an almost total absent of noses), huge almond-shaped or slanted eyes. He shuddered with fear when he looked into the eyes, they resembled bottomless dark pits. One entity was obviously a male and the other a female. Their faces were completely expressionless, nor he sees the slightest movement of their eyes or lips. They stretched their arms towards the witness as they approached him. He attempted to defend himself but to no avail. The beings undressed him in quick “confident” movements, as if they had done it numerous times before. The naked witness was put on his back, on a soft and warm couch. He noticed what appeared to be long wiry needles in the alien man’s hands; the entity then began inserting some of the needles into various places on his body. The witness felt neither pain nor discomfort, he felt very relaxed as if was watching the whole scene from another location. He could not remember how long this procedure lasted for. Suddenly the male humanoid vanished into thin air. After that the alien woman removed what appeared to be a shroud from her body, he was then able to see her very clearly. He could see that she was a rare and amazing beauty, like a statuette made out of polished pistachio tree. She then laid next to him in an obvious attempt to seduce him. He touched her belly and the skin felt warm and velvety. Then he touched her breasts, and he found them to be resilient like touching suede-like skin. The alien woman then touched him and he was amazed at how heavy her hands were, like if her bones were made out of metal. Apparently reading his thoughts, she removed her hand immediately. But this only touch from the alien woman was enough for the witness, it felt like an electric charge, he could not resist her any longer and had sex with her. It was slightly quicker than with a normal earth woman. When the sex act was over she enveloped herself with the shroud again and vanished in plain sight. “Get up and dress” he heard the voice in his mind again. He did what he was told and again an invisible escalator removed him out of the dome-shaped craft. The rainbow colored object then seemed to compress into a whitish globe the size of a watermelon, gave off a blinding flash and vanished. When the officer looked at his watch he realized that only 15 minutes had gone by. After the contact the witness lost 23 kilograms of his weight and his blood pressure and health became normal. On several occasions he attempted to tell his story but each time an inner “voice” prevented him from doing so. (33)

Then came September and high-strangeness was rampant throughout the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe no more bizarre were the occurrences in and around Voronezh Russia. The following summarized cases are the Voronezh close encounters and landings known to researchers, some very well known and some not at all:

34 Location. Voronezh Russia
Date: middle of September 1989 Time: 2000

Igor Yagudin was en route to his job at the local airport had taken a shortcut through a ravine and was climbing up the path that led out of it when he noticed a bright greenish glow to his left. He went to investigate and found a hovering green-colored sphere that remained motionless just above the ground. He walk towards the sphere and heard some footsteps nearby, he looked and saw a very tall, well-proportioned man in a dark silvery suit. The humanoid’s entire head was covered to the shoulders by a large helmet with a rectangular visor. The helmet appeared to contain some type of liquid and no facial features could be seen. A faint glow appeared on the humanoid’s visor and something made the witness look in the direction of the sphere. On the sphere a screen had appeared and on it images of various nuclear power plants, all known to the witness, the plants all appeared to be undergoing some type of emergency and explosions were evident. After a while the images faded and the witness lost consciousness. He later woke up with a slight headache and both the sphere and the humanoid were nowhere in sight. (34)

Leaving the Voronezh area briefly I am including a case that appears to have been some sort of UFO crash after what witnesses described as a ‘dog fight’ in the sky:

35 Location. Zaostravka, Perm region, Russia
Date: September 16 1989 Time: night

North of this location witnesses watched several disc-shaped objects apparently engaged in some kind of “dogfight” with another gold-colored disc after several explosions in the area the electrical power in the city was turned off. The gold colored disc was seen to crash into a local swamp. At the location of the craft several military personnel approached the site, but the disc had apparently crashed into an isolated location impossible to access. The zone was declared forbidden by the local military and several families were displaced and a barbwire was placed in the area. Aircraft flying over the area reported severe equipment malfunctions and were diverted to other flight paths. The downed object was further described as mushroom in shape, with a greenish-gold cupola and a matt black rim and a narrow base. (35)

After the brief sojourn into unknown territory we return to the strangeness around Voronezh:

36 Location. Voronezh Russia
Date: September 21 1989 Time: 2030

Several young boys watched a large sphere land on a park; two tall humanoids wearing silvery outfits and large black boots briefly emerged. A smaller robot-like entity accompanied them. Landing tracks were reportedly found. (36)

Figure 7. One of the best known images of the Voronezh encounters.

37 Location. Voronezh, Russia
Date: September 23 1989 Time: after 2000

5th grade schoolgirl Natasha Krylova and her friends Lena Sorokina, Natasha Voropaeva, Sveta Ryzhkova and Yulya Sholohova saw a white Moon-sized spot of light that appeared in the sky. It soon became clear that it was a globe-shaped object with black stick-like protrusions and lights around it. The object was flying towards the city park, and then it began hovering over the ground and then landed. Three tall humanoid beings appeared in the area where the UFO had landed, two were of the same height, very tall; the third was even taller than the other two. The strangest thing was that the humanoids were not seen to have come out of the craft, but had suddenly appeared out of nowhere standing near the craft, right in front of the children’s eyes. The aliens were dressed in blue cloaks and were walking in midair low over the ground. They did not converse among each other. After walking for some time towards a nearby road they confronted a group of about 6-8 people that were going to the park, among them the Nedosekins family. Then a boy named Alyesha Panin reported seeing the landed UFO with 4 landing legs jutting from it. The landing props were grayish or black in color and the object was light. Bright light emitted from beneath, from where the hatch had opened. 2 entities moved towards the boy, and a third alien remained behind next to the UFO apparently guarding it. The light coming from the hatch gradually died out. When the boys saw the aliens walking towards him strangely he was not afraid, but experienced a headache. Then he heard the girls screaming. However he stayed around for some more time but the aliens vanished. Later the boy and the girls returned to the location and heard a loud humming sound and then ran back home in order to obtain additional witnesses. The first part of the episode had lasted for about 15 minutes.

Soon a larger group of boys and girls returned to the UFO landing place. Then one of the creatures raised its hand and something descended on it, shaped like a shiny beak, the shiny object was emitting light and had appeared from nowhere. Then the entity pull down its hand and the shiny object remained hovering in midair and then descended towards the earth and vanished. At this point the children became afraid and began crying. The entities then moved back to the landed globe. However the object did not fly away, but disappeared in front of their eyes. Apparently many of the adults had seen nothing. (37)

5th grade student from school # 33, Roma Torshin was returning home through the city park when he noticed a large reddish globe with a dark hatch in the sky. Diameter of the object by his estimation was about 5 meters. Before landing, the object emitted 4 landing “legs” or props. Several seconds later the hatch opened, a stairway or ladder then moved out and a robotic entity “rolled” out of it. The “robot” was of chest-height of an adult man. The robot resembled a “large TV-set with buttons on it” with visible rigid legs and arms jutting from it. The boy discerned fingers on the robot’s hands that were constantly moving. The robot was dressed in a bronze-colored suit and black boots, resembling high jack-boots with rolled tops. As appeared to Roma, the robot then noticed him, but did not have any visible reaction to his presence. Then an alien being came out of the globe, about 2 meters in height. The humanoid had an oval-shaped head with 3 eyes; a mouth and nose were not visible. The color of its face was dark brown, with very smooth skin. The humanoid was dressed in a bronze-colored tight-fitting suit. After some time the alien and the robot returned to the spacecraft, the hatch closed emitting a clasping sound and the UFO sharply zoomed up, emitting something like “sparkles” from beneath. During the whole encounter the witness experienced a very strong sense of fear but could walk or run away. (38)

A young witness saw an object with portholes on the ground. A figure more than 3 meters tall emerged from it. The entity had two large eyes on its head and a red light on top. On its chest it had a silvery disk with three round spots of different colors. Below that it had a rectangular box that protruded out. The being also wore large silvery boots. (39)

40 Location. Voronezh, Russia
Date: September 26 1989 Time: 2000

A young student named Sergey Goloszhapov a pupil at the local technical college # 13 after finishing playing football (soccer) was returning home with two other boys, Dima Ligachyev and Slava Kovtunov. They were walking through the park towards the local “preventive clinic” when suddenly they saw a small entity near a tree, it remotely resembled a small child and the witnesses also noticed that the tree had a broken branch. The entity was about 1 meter in height and was completely black in color; the witnesses could not see the humanoid’s face. When they came closer Sergey began speaking to the humanoid, saying, “Come here”. The entity seemed puzzled at first and then began climbing up the tree. The boy also began climbing up the tree after the entity but it suddenly vanished in plain sight. The boys became frightened and ran home. (40)


Figure 10. Another iconic Voronezh image.

41 Location. Voronezh Russia
Date: September 27 1989 Time: 1830

Several children playing at a local park first observed a pinkish glow approaching in the sky, as it came above them they could see that it was a deep red ball shaped object. The object flew around in circles for a few minutes then left. It then returned, hovered briefly, and descended very close to the ground. A hatch opened and a heavyset figure appeared. The being moved very slowly and looked around, he had a very small head resembling that of a doorknob set in between its shoulders, it had three luminous eyes, the middle one moving around like “a radar.” On his chest there was a shield-like object. The being then closed the hatch and the object landed gently on four legs. The hatch opened again and three huge humanoids with small knob-like heads stepped out. These wore silvery overalls and bronze colored boots. A strange robot-like creature accompanied the giants. All four of them walked around the object several times. A beam of light came out of one of the being’s chest and hit the ground creating several luminous triangles that later faded. At one point the craft and beings became briefly invisible then reappeared. One of the boys screamed out in fear. Then one of the beings looked at the boy, pointing a tube at him, it hit the boy with a luminous beam that made him disappeared. The boy later reappeared after the beings and the objects had gone. Later information revealed that on the craft’s hull and on the landing prop of another craft was the letter or symbol “Zhe” reported to have been an “UMMO” like sign. (41)

42 Location. Voronezh, Russia
Date: September 30 1989 Time: 2045

Natasha Gladkova an 8th grade student was with some of her friends near the fence of the kindergarten near the city park when they heard a strong humming sound. At first they thought it was an airplane, but then they saw a flying globe encircled by lights on the edges. The UFO created a strong wind, flew over the park and landed on a glade. Several minutes later humanoid figures appeared near the landed UFO. Some of the aliens were dressed in black cloaks and the rest wore silver colored cloaks. In total there were 5-6 humanoids. They walked out of the landed globe. As seemed to the witnesses, the aliens had no heads. Numerous buttons were seen on their cloaks. The aliens were of average height. They began walking around the globe, apparently examining the environs. The witnesses heard no sounds and attempted to come closer but the aliens suddenly vanished, disappearing in plain sight. The globe the rose up into the air emitted sparkles and disappeared. (42)

43 Location. Voronezh Russia
Date: late September 1989 Time: evening

Young Denis Valyerevich Murzenko was taking a walk alone when he saw a pink egg shaped craft overhead; it was emitting bright beams of light from inside. The object descended closer and began to swing from side to side like a falling leaf. At this point two supports came out from underneath. Denis could now see the outline of a figure inside the craft, the being seemed to be about 4 ½ feet tall, and appeared to have an “elderly” looking face. As the craft kept descending lower and lower the witness became frightened and ran off. He turned to look and saw bright beams of light coming from the craft; the object was also emitting some type of strange sound resembling “electronic music.” (43)

Next comes October which unbelievably surpassed September in the amount of reports and high strangeness incidents, the following are some of the most bizarre in my estimation:

44 Location. Altay Province, West Siberia, Russia
Date: first half of October 1989 Time: evening

In this mountainous area two 10th grade school girls were returning to their village from an agricultural farm on their motorcycle when at about 1km distant from the village the motorcycle engine suddenly died. All attempts to re-start the engine failed. So they decided to leave the motorcycle in the bushes until the next day and began looking for shelter. Suddenly they spotted an elongated object in the sky that was emitting light. When they looked at it more closely they realized that it was a large object somewhat shaped like a “shuttlecock”. The object then initiated a sharp descent shedding light all around the area, both witnesses became frightened but soon both behaved in totally opposite ways, one became extremely scared and began to run away, while the other became extremely curious and approached the supposed landing site. The girl that was running away suddenly heard a voice in her head, “Don’t be afraid, you will receive information”. She stopped and returned to where her curious friend was. The UFO was hovering at about 8-10 meters above the ground. A beam of light was then projected to earth, at first the beam was dull but soon became brighter and brighter. The girls were under the impression that the craft was somehow supported by the beam of light. Seconds later a tall humanoid entity stepped out of the craft. The man was about 3 meters in height with beautiful features, and wearing a tight-fitting silvery overall. His head was encased in what appeared to be some type of luminous “halo” or aura. The alien man then began to speak and at the same time the halo above his head began to pulsate, changing brightness and color. The girls heard his voice not from his mouth but inside their heads. The conversation lasted for about 5 minutes and both witnesses did not remember what they talked about only that the alien man told them something very “interesting”. But they remember very well that their next meeting with the alien was going to be in the near future. The alien the re-entered the beam of light and the object zoomed up vertically into the sky disappearing into the sky and soon resembled a star. No one in the village believed the girl’s story. (44)

45 Location. Volga region, Russia
Date: October 1989 Time: noon

In a village settled by Germans---immigrants from Kazakhstan, resettled there during the war, the witness Richard Ungefuga was mowing a cornfield on an E-281 combine. His partner loaded the allotted limit of corn and left. Richard remained in the field alone and decided to take a well deserved break he sat in the cab looking around. Suddenly from somewhere came a sharp whistle and in the sky appeared a ball that approached changing into a sphere-shaped object which in a few minutes descended and landed on a nearby field next to the water pump. The object was green in color and was about 3 meters in diameter, there appeared to be a sort of glow on the top. A hatch opened on the object and a figure no more than 5 feet in height emerged. In the meantime Richard watched from a hundred feet away. From that distance the object first appeared to be a helicopter. Surprised, the witness exited the combine cab and in an unhurried pace walked towards the object. He froze in place when he realized that the object was not a helicopter, but a perfect round ball and next to it stood a short ‘pilot’ dressed all in white. On his head it wore a helmet with a red antenna. The figure stood motionless with his hands on the sides. The next moment, according to Ungefuga a second pilot exited the ball; this one was very similar to the first one except it did not have a red antenna. The two short men approached the witness and stood next to him briefly and then went back to their flying craft and re-entered through the opened hatch which immediately closed, before the hatch closed the witness was able to see a bright yellow light shining out. Quietly the ball rose to the air and on the bottom of the craft the witness saw three legs sticking out, apparently landing supports. A bright flame shot out from between the legs. The object then flew away at very high speed. At the same time two other workers and were able to see the object disappearing into the distance. (45)

46 Location. Omsk, Russia
Date: October 1989 Time: evening

A man named Kraverov was working on his vegetable garden when suddenly five strange figures materialized before him. According to the witness the figures were apparently man-like, about 2 meters in height and all identical to each other. All wore some type of shimmering uniform. Whether from fright or confusion Kraverov grabbed a knife and rushed one of the tall humanoids. However, to his surprise the knife seemed to pass right through the body apparently causing no harm to the humanoid. In response to his act of aggression one of the humanoids told Kraverov that they were going to drain him of his energy, after which Kraverov lost consciousness. Around the same time a watchman at an area stud farm watched a bright sphere-shaped UFO hovered 25 meters from his location. Soon after the encounter the unfortunate watchman became gravely ill with numerous diseases as his immune system apparently broke down and died. (46)

47 Location. Viytna, Estonia
Date: October 1989 Time: evening

A 10-year old boy, Raido, was reportedly visited by several entities that penetrated into his bedroom. The humanoids were very short, resembling dwarves. They began to “play” with him, at times performing different pranks, soon after the aliens proposed that the boy travel with them. Eventually the boy agreed after persistent alien requests. But then he became afraid and the aliens then told him, “If you are afraid to travel in our ship we will build an individual module for you”. Soon the aliens returned and delivered a personal craft or “box” brown in color to the young witness. A bearded and kind man (possibly a hologram) entered this box and sat next to the boy. The brown box then flew into space and the boy clearly described the distinct feeling of leaving the terrestrial atmosphere and entering outer space. Estonian researchers as well as child psychologists and psychiatrists investigated this case and found the witness to be sane and truthful. (47)

Bizarre reports were coming in from all parts of the vast territory of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and they were getting stranger by the minute, high strangeness had gone out the window, it was beyond that.

48 Location. Haimre Estonia
Date: October 2 1989 Time: 06:30 a.m.

Two men, Tomas Vendel and chemist Laine Pilova were driving to town on a delivery run when they noticed smoke up ahead. Thinking there was someone burning debris they approached the area. As they neared a cross roads they noticed a large barrel shaped object on the ground, silvery on top and darker on the bottom. Soon they noticed two figures standing nearby that appeared to be moving their arms. The figures approached the vehicle and the frightened witnesses locked all the doors. The figures were described a short humanoids, with long knee length arms. The faces were obscured. They wore shiny silvery outfits. The figures emitted some type of strange unknown sound and were described as having very thick legs. The barrel or silo like object was now emitting a very bright blue light form the bottom section. The humanoids then turned around and walked back towards the object. The blue light then became brighter, there was a loud rumble like sound, and the object shot up at incredible speed quickly disappearing from sight. (48)

The following two cases are also from Voronezh and involve definite weird-looking entities:

49 Location. Mashmet station, Voronezh Russia
Date: October 2 1989 Time: 1910-1915

About 40 witnesses had just disembarked the electrical suburban train on the “Mashmet” railway station located several kilometers from the southern city park where the previous UFO sightings had taken place several days before. According to witness Alexander Nikolaevich Kutiszhev the group saw a floating globe-shaped object which emitted light. The object was executing “jumps” over a nearby field, 3-4 times, up and down. The most curious of the group ran across the road to see it closer. Alexander stood on a hill. The globe then landed and a door opened on it. A humanoid entity was visible standing at the door, while the onlookers yelled out in awe. The humanoid figure was of robust built, with a “mighty countenance”, and taller than average. Instead of a head it had only an arc-shaped protrusion. The alien was similar to a robot and seemed to move with awkwardly and sluggishly. It had what appeared to be a square shield on its chest and was carrying a baton or “crutch-like” stick. The humanoid then pointed the stick down, apparently in an attempt to obtain soil samples. Alexander could not tell for sure because of the distance. The globe-shaped UFO was flattened, gray in color and three red lights similar to brake lights on cars. It did not rest on the ground but hovered just above it, about one meter from it. The humanoid then turned around and walked back inside the craft and then the object began flying away emitting a peeping sound. It ascended slightly, stopped momentarily and then seemed to vanish instantly. The landing site was examined by UFO researchers from Voronezh. They found damaged plants on the site and other evident traces of event. (49)

50 Location. Voronezh, Russia
Date: October 2 1989 Time: about 2000

A boy named Denis Murzenko from school # 33 had gone to the same area of his first alien encounter of September 28 in the city park. He again saw the strange alien figure. The humanoid was more than 2 meters in height, dressed in a “jacket” with 3 zipper fasteners. When Denis approached the humanoid he noticed an iron plate on the alien’s chest area with something written on it. The alien stood for awhile and then went down to his knees, touched the grass and then moved its hands up and down, stood up, ran a bit and they began to walk. The distance between the boy and the humanoid was about 20 meters. The humanoid then walked at a quick pace and then it slowed down. He turned around several times looking at Murzenko and then walked behind a nearby shed. Denis ran after the humanoid behind the shed but it had already vanished. Denis could not understand where the humanoid had vanished to. There was no place to go only a very narrow slit between two sheds, even to narrow for the boy to fit through. (50)

This following case, from the Caucasus region a location that would undergo terrible wars and misery appears to involve some type of ‘crude’ abduction attempt:

51 Location. Mayskiy, Kabardino-Balkariya Republic, North Caucasus Russia
Date: October 11 1989 Time: evening

16-year old Hatawa Barinova was returning home on her moped from trade school. Suddenly from an unknown location she heard a low mechanical, monotone type voice, resembling that of a robot. It loudly and clearly sounded in his head, “Sit down quietly!” The witness looked up and saw a thin and transparent “grid”, resembling the material polyethylene falling over her. Beams of light seemed to emanate from each polygon or cell. The grid like net began to control the moped, covering the witness from all sides.

She felt compression on her head and her respiration became shallow, soon both the witness and the moped began to rise in the air. She began screaming for her mother, but her voice sounded like an echo inside a “barrel” Attempting to jump from the moped she momentarily grasped the luminous grid and received a mild electrical discharge. Through the grid she saw her aunt Galya approaching and yelling something, the witness could see her lips moving but heard no sound. Her aunt along with her husband managed to grab the terrified girl and pull her away as the grid rose upwards and disappeared. She was taken home where she was treated for burns to her hands and fingers. Around the same time other locals had spotted a large luminous sphere hovering above approximately the same location. (51)

The next case is troubling in many aspects, the witness or abductee appears to have encountered entities that were aware of the coming events of 1991 or attempted “Putsch” in Moscow:

52 Location. Karabikha, Yaroslavl, Russia
Date: October 15 1989 Time: daytime

Nikolai Slezkin was walking back home along a forested area when he spotted above the forest a hovering yellow-silvery sphere, which swiftly approached his location and ejected an object from the bottom resembling a dark “skirt”. At the same time Nikolai felt a severe vibration in his body, he seemed to lose control of his muscles and his head he heard a question, “Who are you?” He answered that he was a simple hunter and just wanted to be left alone. His body suddenly rose into the air and a revolving bright yellow light surrounded him, at this point he lost consciousness. When he came to, Slezkin saw the sphere above him departing from the area. He could not remember what had happened.
Months later under hypnotic regression he remembered traveling in some sort of “space vehicle” and human like aliens talking to him, predicting the events in Moscow of the attempted putsch of 1991. When he first spoke of this prediction no one believed him. (52)

53 Location. Urgench, Uzbekistan
Date: October 18 1989 Time: midnight

Mr. Ruzimat Khayitov, a teacher at a local school heard knocking on the door of his opened balcony. Then a beam of light appeared on the floor. As he turned back he noticed a strange man sitting in his apartment, located on the fourth floor. He felt afraid. The strange man was dressed in a silver suit. He was about 1.70 m to 1.80 m in height. His clothing was so shiny that the room was clearly illuminated. He wore silver boots and two antenna-like protrusions on his chest area. The alien had short legs, long arms and wide shoulders, with large “beautiful” black eyes, resembling those of Uzbek women. Soon a second alien entered the room, carrying something resembling a flashlight in his hand. A dialog was started between Khayitov and the aliens. They told him that they had no evil intentions and that they did not wish to harm anyone. But they refused to answer Mr. Khayitov’s questions about their place of origin. The aliens poured tea from a teapot into a container and put a piece of flat cake (typical Uzbek food) into a shiny packet. All this was done with permission of Mr. Khayitov. The contact lasted for 5 minutes, after that they went out into the balcony and vanished. (53)

The next case is from a country in Eastern Europe that was very much involved in the world changing events that were in progress and it also involved military personnel that country was Hungary:

54 Location. Tarnaszentmaria military barracks, Hungary
Date: October 20 1989 Time: various

Several bizarre incidents were reported by soldiers at these barracks. First strange loud rumbling sound was heard by the day watch, it resembled a giant balloon being popped. Later that morning guard Louis Honved standing duty at the watch tower watched several moving points of light in the sky; the lights seemed to descend behind some nearby pipelines. Next the guard noticed a sphere about cm diameter preceded by a red light. Moments later a green glow appeared behind him, along the fence near the tower. Later that morning Honved was disturbed by the frantic barking of the guard dog at the foot of the watch tower. The witness climbed down the tower and noticed two bizarre figures moving in a strange manner near the fence. Both figures were humanoid, tall and wearing what appeared to be body armor, he could not see their arms and their heads were covered by milky white bell-shaped helmets, on their feet the witness noticed what appeared to be fins, similar to what divers use. When he attempted to move or call for help he was totally paralyzed. The creatures soon disappeared from sight moving in a strange waddling fashion. After they left he was able to move again. (54)

The next case epitomizes the type of bizarre high strangeness events being reported during those times of change:

55 Location. Sibay, Bashkortostan Republic, Russia
Date: October 21 1989 Time: daytime

An anonymous male witness noticed a “flying saucer” about 40 meters in diameter, it was a disc-shaped object with a gradual dome and it was hovering about 3 meters over the ground. The witness felt warmth overtake him and his mood became very jovial. He felt somehow attracted to the hovering object. He walked towards it and stopped at about 10-15 meters from the disk and began looking at it. The disk descended closer to the ground and a hatch opened and two “men” stepped out, each one was more than 2 meters in height and both were dressed in silvery suits. They began a telepathic conversation with the witness. They told him to approach and not to be afraid. They then touched him and he was allowed to touch them. After this initial “introduction” they entered the craft via an elevator-like entrance. Inside the witness did not notice anything specially complicated, the disk’s cabin appeared to be quite simply built. The witness noticed that his dirty tracks were left imprinted on the floor of the alien craft. Right after he pointed that out to the aliens some kind of “cleaning machine” entered the room and immediately cleaned his boots and the dirty tracks on the floor. One of the alien visitors then told that they were “guests in his time and that he was a guest on board their craft” he called himself Abaris. The witness then also introduced himself. The “alien” leader then asked the witness in what “time had they appeared”. He told them, “in the year 1989, the date October 21”. Arabis said that such answer did not mean anything to them, and asked the following question, “How much time had passed since the continents became separated?” (!). The witness said he did not know but told them that the earth was about 5 billion years old and the Universe no less than 15. The “aliens” then told him that civilization had existed on Earth before the continents had drifted apart roughly about 35 thousand years ago. He claimed that during experimentation with accelerator of elementary particles “the Great calamity” had occurred, it had changed conditions on earth to an inappropriate state and had triggered a continental shift. The disaster had occurred because of ignorance of the complete energy substance. It was considered that the full energy was E=MC2, but after the calamity it was apparently 30 degrees higher. After the calamity some of the inhabitants escaped using a time machine. The witness then asked why couldn’t they returned to the past using the time machine and prevent the calamity. The answer was, “According to the principles of Nature time travel to the past is impossible, only time travel to the future is possible”. The witness then asked the “alien” how much time had passed from the moment they had started traveling from their time period. The alien said, “If we could escape the traps of time, by our clock, already 27 minutes have passed, for you is 1/50 of a day.” The witness then asked, “How can all of your civilization meet simultaneously”? The answer was that, their safety measures of time would work, that they had installed them very solidly. Simultaneously, time beacons will inform them about the end of their trip, they said they had many secrets that few knew about, and that civilization must be preserved from different and unexpected things. The witness told the “alien” that he had heard rumors that humanity will be extinct if they did not change their ways by the year 2000, he wanted to know if it was true. The answer was that as to their mutual interests of both “parallel” civilizations” the calamity must never repeat itself, they were working on correcting the “mistake” now. The witness then asked how time travel was possible. He was told that there were 6 degrees of “freedom” in space, forward, backward, left, right, up and down, and one degree in time---to the future. In total there were seven degrees of movement. Apparently they had the ability to slow time and eliminate the need of large consumption of energy. To realize that on practice, the theory of superconductivity must be known as well as super liquidity and super transparency. After the scientific dialogue was finished the witness stepped out of the craft and the “aliens” closed the door, the disk then zoomed up and disappeared. (55)


56 Location. Badamzar, Kashkadar’yinskaya region, Uzbekistan
Date: October 22 1989 Time: noon

Several local residents observed the landing of a cube-shaped object, square in form & fiery red in color; it was approximately 2 x 1 m, with 2 additional cylindrical protrusions on the corners. On the bottom of the object there was a larger cylinder with rings. The ribs at the bottom of the object were placed in a cross-like arrangement. Two aliens were visible through the window of the craft. A third alien exited the object and walked towards the village. The alien was about 2 m in height, with a flat body and no neck, long arms reaching down below his knees. The head was almost bald with small patches of gray hair jutting out near the ears. The color of the entity’s skin was dark, almost black or dark gray. Instead of a nose the humanoid had small openings. The clothing appeared to be made out of leather, on the chest there was an emblem resembling a “red cross” or two diagonal red lines that crossed in the middle. The alien made an attempt to abduct a local woman (Mrs. Gulasal Khalikova) and her son Muhsinzhon Khalikov. Mrs. Khalikova yelled in her language: “Don’t touch my son! The alien replied: “We will take him”. She replied: No! I will not let you! In turn the alien replied: “We will take your son for two years, if you want we will take you too.” Mrs. Khalikova refused to go and in a panic both she and her son ran away from the alien. A number of her neighbors witness the abduction attempt. Many others saw the object on the ground. (56)


Next we have another case from Voronezh this time involving both children and adult witnesses, the events in Voronezh were far from over:

57 Location. Voronezh, Russia
Date: October 25 or 26 1989 Time: 1900

A local girl named Svetlana S. had gone to the garage with her father. When her father walked out the girl saw an object emitting light and moving in the sky over the garage. Since it was dark already the object was clearly visible, against the background of a cloudy sky. Quickly increasing its size the object descended on an inclined trajectory and soon using circular motions it began to hover low over the garage. The object was egg-shaped, about 10 meters wide. Small circles were visible near the lower section of the object, resembling portholes or windows. These emitted yellow and red blinking lights. As the object hovered above the roof of the garage several antenna-like devices came out of its hull apparently emitting a loud ringing or beeping sound. After that smaller probes began separating from the larger object. The smaller objects were brightly lit and moved around the larger object. As the smaller lighted objects flew over nearby rooftops, numerous humanoid or entities appeared under their path. The humanoids were taller in size than an average human and wore something like helmets on their heads with “three eyes”. The humanoids carried devices, which according to the young witness resembled automatic machine guns hanging from their chest area. All the entities moved in synchronized movements like robots. Their right arms hung down, pressed against their bodies. Svetlana noticed that they had two fingers that appeared to be joined together and then 2 “normal” separate fingers and a fifth wire-like protrusion instead of a finger. As soon as Svetlana moved the entities grabbed on to their “machine guns” and in seconds several yellow beams of light struck Svetlana, creating something like a loop around her. The frightened girl froze in place, which apparently convinced the entities of her good intentions and ignored her, continuing their strange synchronized movements. Sometime after that, the main object descended and vanished behind the garage, it then ascended again emitting the loud beeping sound again, soon the smaller objects with the humanoids entities returned back inside the main object. The object then performed several circles around the rooftops and then quickly rushed upwards and vanished from sight. Svetlana’s teacher confirmed that the girl was stable and reliable. (57)

Figure 11. Description of female entity reported in Ukraine.

58 Location. Brovary, Kiev region, Ukraine
Date: October 31 1989 Time: 03:00 a.m.

A female witness named Iva Gospina who had previously seen various UFOs maneuvering over the area woke up late at night feeling apprehensive suspecting someone had broken into the apartment. She checked the apartment and found her family sleeping and everything else in order. She then looked out the window and noticed to her surprise a short woman wearing a tight-fitting black suit standing at her door, the woman had long straight white hair down to her shoulders, there also appeared to be a small black dog standing next to the woman, but since it was dark the witness could not see any other details. Still feeling apprehensive she walked back into the living room and attempted to sleep on the couch. Suddenly a large luminous yellow circle slowly entered through the closed blinds of the window. Three figures, similar to people then appeared standing on her carpet. The figures wore diver’s suits similar to cosmonauts or robots and were approximately 140-150cm in height. Two of them wore diving suits similar in color to frosted glass, and the third wore a golden scaly suit. The yellow light was now arranged in a semi-circle above the figure’s heads. The figures stood quietly without moving or speaking. In a state of panic the witness mentally commanded the figures to depart. Immediately these disappeared and the luminous yellow circle floated slowly out the window. The room became absolutely dark again. The witness stood up and rushed to the window feeling some regret that the figures had left and she yelled out for them to return in despair, thinking that she had lost a unique chance in her life to communicate with extraterrestrial beings. Later that night as she attempted to sleep she heard and “felt” a large figure enter her room and stand over her. She felt completely paralyzed and was unable to move and couldn’t open her eyes from fear. Again she panicked and mentally commanded the alien to leave. The next morning she learned from neighbors that a red luminous object had been seen hovering over the area. She then understood that the three aliens who had entered her room had come in peace and she regretted not contacting them. (58)


I feel that I just presented a fair number of bizarre cases from October now we move into November indeed a critical month during the world changing events of the time, the encounters did not slow down and high strangeness continued unrelenting. The first case again involves military personnel, in this case a militia captain:

59 Location. Voronok, Szelkovo area, Moscow region, Russia
Date: November 1989 Time: evening

A militia captain named Yuriy Mishichev was returning home from duty on the road along the banks of the River Klyazma which was covered with a thin layer of ice at the time. Suddenly he saw two silhouettes standing near the water rescue cabin. The “men” seemed to be doing something in a haste, which alarmed Yuriy and he was compelled to approach them. He noticed that the two suspicious subjects were dressed in tight-fitting diver suits. The material of the suits looked unusual, it was a transparent material which reminded the witness of the thin latex used in condoms, and lacked any visible seams. The aliens wore masks on the face area with elongated bulging goggles reminiscent of insects. Yuriy knew the guys from the station and thought that they were testing some kind of new foreign equipment for diving and rescue. So he approached the “divers” and with a smile offer to help. There was no reply. Mishichev then thought since a military space-tracking center was located beyond the river, he surmised that the divers were somehow connected with the Army or maybe they were spies. He approached closer and told the strangers to remove their masks, explaining his request by gesture also, stretching his hand towards one of the strangers. In response one of the men moved his hand away with his palm; at this point Mishichev realized that the “man” had a six digit hand. Finally he realized that the strangers were either military or divers and he decided to arrest them (!) and took one of them by the elbow. The touch on the alien’s body felt very cold while the witness ordered the stranger to follow him. He pulled the alien by the elbow forcing him to take a step towards the rescue cabin, but the alien stopped refusing to walk any further. The alien did not struggle or tried to break loose he just stood still as the witness’s suddenly felt heavy and was unable to walk. His brain felt numb and his body felt like it weighed a ton of lead. Overcoming that terrible torpid state attempting to push and pull the alien, but was unable to maintain the struggle for a long time. His eyelids became heavy, his elbows bended and he fell to the ground like a heavy sack of potatoes. Later he woke up but the aliens had vanished. Two days after the incident the witness heard that there had been a UFO landing at a runway at the nearby Chkalovskiy Air Base. (59)

The next case involves a decidedly anomalous entity apparently “Cyclopean” in nature and is from another soon to be troubled region “Dagestan”:

60 Location. Leninkent, Dagestan, Russia
Date: November 1989 Time: night

Two hunters on motorcycles and armed with rifles were looking for hares (rabbits) in an isolated area and soon came upon the tracks of a hare and began chasing it. Suddenly the hare froze in place seemingly hitting an invisible barrier. The surprised hunters watched in amazement. Suddenly the engine of their motorcycle stopped and standing two meters from them in the brush the men noticed a giant, one-eyed (Cyclopean) hairy entity. The strange creature had a single green eye in the middle of its forehead, which emanated light. The light seemed to hypnotize both men. Numb with horror the men remain staring at the creature, unable to move. The giant quietly looked at the hunters and in a few minutes walked into the forest, with no gestures or any attempts to communicate. According to the witnesses the entity did not run it just sort of seemed to vanish in plain sight. The terrified hunters wanted to leave the area but could not start their motorcycle engine. Later at home one of the men discovered that one of the cylinders on the motorcycle was inexplicably broken. Afterwards the men refused to hunt in the area for at least 2 months. (60)


The next November case is one of the few of the wave besides Voronezh and a few selects others that was widely published in the west:


61 Location. Archangelsk Region Russia
Date: November 1 1989 Time: midnight

Two men driving a truck along an unpaved road near the Emtsa railway station close to Plesetsk suddenly came upon a huge metallic object that was half blocking the road. The truck engine stalled as they approached the object but the battery operated headlights remaining on. One of the men attempted to approach the craft on foot but was unable to make any substantial progress as the craft appeared to be surrounded by an invisible force field. The craft was described as disc shaped with a large central dome. Along its perimeter there were dark round holes and a rectangular door like opening at one end. The craft rested on several metallic strut-like supports. As the witness stood looking at the dark object, several bright points of light became visible in front of him, forming some type of red screen that was suspended in mid-air. Within the screen a message became visible and it stated, “They needed fire.” The witness proceeded to make a small fire with some leaves and matches near the object. He looked up to see an opening become visible. Inside a corridor that led within the object could be seen, at the end of the corridor a blinking blue light was visible. Suddenly a dark indescribable figure resembling a featureless sack slid out of the opening, rolled over to the fire, took a box of matches then rolled back inside the craft. The witness then felt an urge to go inside the object and did so. Apparently the force field had been removed from around the craft. Inside he followed the corridor that led him to what appeared to be a command console, with computer screens and a single chair. He received numerous telepathic messages but did not see any other occupants or entities. He eventually exited the object, which rotated and shot up into the sky quickly disappearing from sight. (61)


The next case involved a deputy commander at a strategic missile site and it occurred on the same day that the Berlin Wall began to be dismantled:

62 Location. Krasnoyarsk, Russia
Date: November 6-7 1989 Time: 2354

Captain Alexander Kovylkov was appointed deputy commander of a strategic missile position near Krasnoyarsk. The garrison was located about 20-25 kilometers from the main launch pad. He was on duty at night and late at night he went to check on the posts. A huge moon shone overhead as Kovylkov, neatly attired in winter hat, greatcoat, waist belt, holster with gun, and high boots with special leather heels he had specially made for him. Suddenly at about 70 meters ahead of him he noticed three dark silhouettes. His first thought was maybe escaped prisoners (from where?). But he noticed that the figures were disproportionably built and about 2 to 2.2 meters in height. They were dressed in tight-fitting suits of a shiny gray-green material, similar to the material used in the military anti-chemical protective suits. He yelled, “Who is there?” And he grabbed his holster, in response he heard a hissing sound and felt a powerful electric charge strike his chest, he then lost consciousness. His next memory was not to clear; he felt his body being transported through a huge curving pipe, similar to a vacuum cleaner. He was then placed in a kind of examination table face down, in the middle of a round, dome shaped room. Three aliens are in the room, 2 are males, very tall and with very broad shoulders. They appear to have no necks as their heads seemed to be placed directly into their shoulders. Their hands are disproportionably long, their long narrow fingers reaching the knees. The third alien was apparently female, the small breast-like protrusions visible in her chest. This third alien was also athletic built like her companions. They had huge eyes that covered half their faces, narrow pale lips. Several small openings instead of a nose, resembling a small colander, they stood at the head of their bed. One of the aliens had opened Kovylkov’s cranium (he felt no pain), while another alien inserted 3 thin pins into his brain with red pulsating tips. Alexander screamed and lost consciousness again. He came to again after he felt someone slapping his face. He opened his eyes and found himself sitting at a table. The sergeant on duty, Mamedov, was yelling at him asking him if he was alive. It was 0008A, 12 minutes had passed. The soldier explained to him that he was found unconscious near the table. The commander of the unit came running into the room. He had seen the taiga bathed in a blood-red light and next he saw a bright star-like object ascending at high speed into the sky. Kovylkov explained what happened and several soldiers using flashlights began searching the woods. Another curious fact soon came to light; Kovylkov famous heels were missing, after following his footprints, his heels were again found but the copper nails connecting the heels with the sole were missing. It appears that a year after the incident when a doctor attempted to X-ray his head the film will not developed and it was spoiled three times in a row. (62)


Reports kept pouring in, unfortunately too many to include all, next we have a typical example of a “bedroom visitation” during the 1989 wave in the former Soviet Union:

63 Location. Novgorod, Russia
Date: middle of November 1989 Time: 2300

The witness, 23-year old Tatiana was sleeping when suddenly she woke up to see the ceiling light switched on and immediately had the impression that there was someone else in the room with her. She opened her eyes and was amazed that at the edge of her bed sat a “young man”. He was very tall, somewhere around 2meters. He appeared to be about 25-26 years of age. The man’s face was unnaturally beautiful, very kind in appearance with skin of an unusual peach tint. He also had a high forehead and radiant blue eyes, his eyebrows formed into an arc, his nose straight and small. He had short light brown hair, neatly combed. The man wore a suit of a light brilliant fabric without any buttons or fasteners. His chest was wide. And his strong athletic body was visible under his suit. He was sitting half turned looking at Tatiana. She did not feel fright or alarm and stared at the stranger for about 10 minutes. She even moved up a little to obtain a better look at the intruder. She felt good feeling or vibrations emanating from the stranger. She then apparently fell asleep and around 0500A was awakened by her mother who asked her why she hadn’t switched off the ceiling light. Tatiana noticed that soon after the incident a head cold which had been lingering completely vanished. (She would have another encounter with a different humanoid in April 1990) (63)

The next case involved more military witnesses and again from Hungary:

64 Location. Tarnaszentmaria Hungary
Date: November 20 1989 Time: night

Several soldiers at the local army barracks noticed a curious mist in the sky with lights inside. Moments later a Saturn-shaped object flew overhead disappearing towards the forest. A powerful beam of light that made them sick briefly illuminated two of the guards. Later that same night another soldier reported seeing several 10-foot tall white colored figures in a forest clearing facing the barracks. The figures seemed to move in slow motion. All the animals in the area became frantic. The soldier approached the creature and attempted to discharge his weapon but he suddenly became paralyzed and was unable to move for several minutes. Suddenly the creatures disappeared in a flash of red light. (64)


Next is a case from one of the remotest ‘Socialist estates’ of the former Soviet Union, we are talking about Turkmenistan and it involves very curious details indeed:


65 Location. Ashgabat, Turkmenistan
Date: November or December 1989 Time: night

A 6-year old girl, Tanya Kuzina claimed to have been visited by extraterrestrials one night. In the morning she told her 30-year old mother, Mrs. Natalya Kuzina. According to Tanya, several humanoid male aliens somehow entered her bedroom. They all wore large transparent helmets on their heads that came down to their shoulders. Metallic antennas, resembling small horns, were visible on the helmets. The men told the girl “Let's be friends”. Frightened, Tanya asked the men who they were. They told her that they were from another world and then departed. Her mother did not believe her story. However several days later according to Tanya the strange “men” returned. The visitors further explained to Tanya that they lived in another more beautiful world, which was very pleasant in nature. Tanya then asked if they had trees in their world and the aliens said that their trees resembled large “cucumbers”. “What do you have there besides that” asked Tanya. The aliens then explained that they had special apparatuses, which they used to “puncture holes between worlds” (to travel?). They said that their world was parallel to that of earth. They told the uncomprehending young girl that once they puncture a hole, the space “converts” into something akin to a gravitational collapse. The aliens pointed out to Tanya that she was a good girl and had the necessary “resonant frequencies”. She was then asked if she wanted to visit their ship, she said yes and in a moment she appeared inside their spacecraft. The men pointed to a console with numerous buttons and asked Tanya if she wanted to press a button (!) she agreed and was told to press a certain button but not to touch the other ones. She was told that the other buttons were responsible for the temporal shift and “converting space.” The aliens also said that there were very few people on earth that they could communicate with and that Tanya was one of them, the reason given was that she was “underdeveloped”. That she had rare “atavism” in her body. The aliens explained to Tanya that atavism was contained in her head as a “third eye”. Finally the aliens told Tanya that they would eventually take her with them when she became an adult. (65)

The “procession of the damned” (as Charles Fort was known to say) continued well into December, our next location is again Hungary:

66 Location. Simonfa, Hungary
Date: December 1989 Time: evening

J. Varga was walking his dogs through a forest path when he was suddenly approached by two separate groups of six short entities, about 120cm in height, with black eyes, and walking single file. Strangely each group seemed to have been led by a 2 meter tall humanoid entity with what appeared to be antennae like protrusions on the head. Varga stopped and let his dog go who immediately ran towards the humanoids; however the dog suddenly stopped and ran back obviously terrified and dropped to the ground. Distracted by the plight of his dog Varga did not see how the humanoids disappeared or in which direction they left. (66)\

Next, the ‘procession’ paid a brief visit to the Ukraine:


67 Location. Ozirshchina, Kiev, Ukraine
Date: December 2 1989 Time: 1700

Two men strolling near a small frozen man-made lake came upon an open space and saw a disc shaped object on the lake. Three to four small humanoids with bronzed brown faces were walking around and near the object. The beings wore shiny silvery outfits with large “snow boots”, they had well proportioned bodies. The craft was metallic and murky gray in color. As the witnesses watched, the humanoids apparently noticed them and suddenly vanished. The disc then rose to treetop level and also vanished. An oval shaped mark ringed by something yellowish in color was found on the ice, also footprints were evident. (67)


The next two cases are from Bulgaria and one of the witnesses was again a military man, in his case a ‘tank commander’:


68 Location. Blankya Bulgaria
Date: December 17 1989 Time: 04:50 a.m.

Just previous to this encounter, residents of this town close to the Bulgarian Capital Sofia reported observing pear-shaped UFOs. The UFOs reportedly flew close to the government offices. On this morning Mrs. Zinoviya Yankova, a Bulgarian TV producer awoke in her recreational retreat room when an unusually soft pinkish light lighted it.
She stood up, went to the balcony and noticed a brightly lit UFO over the nearby village of Mchailovo and a Government residence. It was fish shaped, without a tail, with two inclined antennas pointing down. There was an eerie silence in the area. At this point she heard a clicking sound resembling that of galloping horse’s hooves. She looked down and on the snowy street she saw 3, two-meter tall humanoid figures, as measured by the nearby telegraph pole. One of the figures was wearing gray overalls and smooth “masks” hid their faces. Their arms were long, hanging below the knees and seemed to directly come out of the waist. They walked without bending their knees. The feet were not visible. The second figure was completely black in color. Both aliens were marching in synchronicity almost like marching soldiers. They vanished behind a nearby building. (68)

69 Location. Blankya, near Sofia Bulgaria 
Date: December 17 1989 Time: early morning

That same morning, Colonel Gancho Ivanov, commander of a tank brigade, was awakened by a loud sound. He went out of his room and noticed a fish shaped UFO in the west flying towards the south. The object flew at about 50-60 meters above some buildings, descending, leaving a trail of bluish lights. The object was silver in color, resembling “old white bronze”. The object landed sharply approximately 200 meters from the sanatorium near the Government residences. 15-20 seconds after that, a hatch opened and 3 “pilots” stepped out of the craft. The figures started walking towards the city center. All 3 were more than 3 meters in height. According to the witness, the alien in the center was talking to his companions walking to the right and left of him. They were dressed in soft silver suits, and high boots. They walked awkwardly, stepping heavy “like horses” raising their legs sharply up and down, like soldiers in a parade. The giant in the middle was apparently the leader; he was wearing something like a bag suspended by straps around his neck. They walked by 2 telegraph poles, briefly stopped and then began walking back. As they approached the craft, the hatch opened again and the giants “plunged” inside, the hatch closed and a flame appeared below the craft, which began silently zooming up. After gaining certain altitude it flew north and vanished. Later strange tracks (footprints) were found in the snow, about 40cm in diameter. (69)


The next case is also from Eastern Europe but not necessary from an area that was part of the former Soviet Union sphere of influence, this case was from Croatia which was of course part of greater Yugoslavia at the time, and yes changes would be coming to this region also accompanied by death and destruction:

70 Location. Makarska, Croatia (Yugoslavia)
Date: December 20 1989 Time: night

A group of adults were on the southern slope of a local mountain when they noticed a clearly defined homogeneous reddish ball of light, about 2 kilometers from their location. Curious they approached the location and observed standing in the vicinity of the light a human-like figure wearing a tight fitting silvery coverall and with close-cropped hair. The outline of the figure was very sharp and distinct. The light was the size of a passenger car, emitting a grayish glare from its surface. Suddenly the light began to radiate red and yellow bands of light and moved rapidly towards the witnesses. The witnesses then sped away from the area. (70)

On the same day as the Croatian report there would be a weird encounter in the tiny former Soviet Republic of Moldova:


71 Location. Chisinau, Moldova (USSR)
Date: December 20 1989 Time: evening

In the highway leading to the airport numerous witnesses observed the flight of a cigar-shaped object, black and shiny. The length of the object was about thirty feet. Before reaching the airport the object suddenly made a left turn and went down on its belly right on the ground. Pensioner, V. K. Kostikov walking around the area at the same time the object landed decided to approach the object for a closer look. A hatch opened and a strange humanoid slightly taller than 1 meter emerged. It spoke to Kostikov in an incomprehensible language, albeit “sweet and melodic”. The strange entity was described as having no visible legs and resembling ‘a snail below the hips’. On the highway a girl riding her bicycle also noticed the strange object and curious also approached the object. According to her, upon seeing her, the ‘alien slug’ left Kostikov alone and moved towards her and also spoke to her in an incomprehensible language. Frightened she ran off. Soon after the bizarre humanoid re-boarded the craft and left the area. (71)

Next I will summarize a series of events said to have taken place in Baku, the capital of another remote Soviet Republic, Azerbaijan:

72 Location. Baku, Azerbaijan 
Date: December 26 1989 Time: 1800

At the very center of the city several children were gathered in the courtyards playing. One of them, Rashad K. was riding in his bicycle when he noticed standing under the arch of a nearby house a strange humanoid, human like, who was white in color, with red eyes with a fox-like snout and a large mouth. Rashad rode from the scene and told his friends what he had seen. As the other children approached the area they spotted the strange figure staring at them. Several of the children gave it chase but it quickly disappeared from sight. Upon returning to the field the children were surprised to see the entity sitting on a bench there, already waiting for them. It was described as about 1.40 to 1.60 meters in height, wearing dark trousers and a brown jacket. His head was covered with sparse hair. The entity seems to call out to children as they began surrounding it. But suddenly the humanoid broke and to a run and appeared to dissolve to nothingness in front of the astonished children. As it moved, its feet did not appear to touch the ground. (72)

73 Location. Baku Azerbaijan
Date: December 27 1989 Time: evening

In the same area of the previous encounter, several children 10 to 12 years of age saw a head coming from behind the arch, and then the figure appeared, a little girl who attempted to approach the site, suddenly bounced back falling to the ground crying. She described the entity as having glowing eyes, cherry red in color. Later another one of the children threw a stone at the entity; however the stone and the entity disappeared in plain sight. The children noticed that the entity’s hand had only three fingers. (73) 

74 Location. Baku Azerbaijan
Date: December 28 1989 Time: early morning

Unable to sleep because of the previous events, two youngsters, Agaselim and Dima they heard coming from the area of the previous encounter a terrible howling sound, which they said did not belong to either animal or man. They were too afraid to look out the window. Later that same day the entity again appeared in the courtyard, but now it was almost 3 meters in height. Terrified the children watch, as the entity appeared to dissolve into thin air. 30 minutes the entity again appeared but this time in a “reduced” version almost at a normal height. (74)


75 Location. Baku Azerbaijan
Date: December 30 1989 Time: evening

Children in the area of the courtyard again reported the appearance of a strange entity, which ran along the roofs of the houses. It appeared to have a glowing head this time. One of the children stood near the house and looked up at the entity but was struck by a beam of blue light emanating from the entity, which caused temporarily blindness and his eyes to water. (75)


I will stop with a very curious case (they all seemed to have been very curious) that apparently took place in the capital of Russia, Moscow:


76 Location. Moscow, Russia
Date: late December 1989 Time: 04:30 a.m.

L. I. Spirindova sat up in bed unable to sleep and looked at her watch, again she tried to sleep but to no avail. Suddenly a flash of light that came in through the window lit up her bedroom. At first she thought it was lighting but did not hear any thunder and now realized that the light appeared to be constant. Curious she walked to the window and watched a disc-shaped object slowly descending to the ground near her building, above the disc there was a cone-shaped plume of glowing lines. The disc then gently touched down behind the houses. As soon as that happened she saw in the garden a large human-like figure flying horizontally above the ground, the figure was wearing a tight-fitting diver’s suit. The figure stopped and floated silently in mid-air, it then suddenly took a vertical position and dropped to the ground. From her bedroom it was no longer visible, so she went to the kitchen, still she could not see it, as she walked back to her bedroom she suddenly saw a tall gray clad figure standing on her balcony. The height of the figure was about 2 ½ meters in height. He stood looking down to the ground from the balcony, and soon the witness realized that there was another entity on the ground below the balcony. Moments later the 2nd figure appeared next to the tall one on the balcony, this figure was shorter, only about 1.5m in height and was wearing a helmet visor. Terrified, the witness backed away towards her bedroom. As she did this the shorter figure suddenly threw her helmet back and the witness saw the face of a young woman, with eyes that radiated warmth, friendliness and intelligence. Immediately a strange feeling came over the witness, who almost convinced herself that she was looking at her daughter (!), even though she realized that was impossible. The female entity stared at her as the witness slowly sat on her bed and then laid back. The witness felt trapped and in a stupor her eyelids were heavy, she froze and fell into a deep sleep. Later when she came to the balcony was empty. Later she read in the newspaper that the same night other witnesses had seen a hovering disc-shaped object about 10-15 miles from her house. (76)


Incredibly this was only the tip of the proverbial “Iceberg” describing what was taken place behind the scenes in this part of the world at the time, especially between 1989 through 1991. Even more incredibly still 1990 surpassed 1989 in the amount of cases and high strange situations in the region and things didn’t really ‘slow’ down until about 1997.Of course perhaps at this point most of these cases would be impossible to verify I leave it to the reader to make their own decision. But it cannot be denied that at the time of profound world changes especially in the region of our planet there appeared that something besides political change was occurring, something behind the scenes perhaps accelerated the incredible sudden changes of the time. The mindset of a whole region was being changed millions began to realize that they were part of a bigger world and Universe that they could ever had imagined. Did UFOs and humanoids play a role on the changes? perhaps we will never know but I would like to think so.

Crimea is one of the places really worth to spend your vacation. It has perfect nature and numerous historical and architectural monuments. But if you need medical care, you should choose a hospital carefully. Medical service in Ukraine is not very quality and it is not easy to find a good hospital in Crimea. Ukraine Vacation Guide started to create a list of good Crimea hospitals http://ukraine-vacation-guide.com/dir/hospital/crimea/814 Everyone who know there good hospitals can share knowledge and advice new hospitals to list there.
