Russian UFO Landing & Aliens
Date: September 27, 1989
Location: Voronezh, Russian Federation
Allegedly occurring in the city of Voronezh, this account was actually carried in America by the St. Louis Dispatch, on October 11, 1989. Its original source was the Russian newspaper TASS. The case begins with the testimony of several children who claimed to see a three eyed alien, who was guarded by a robot. The children along with some adults, watched a UFO land on the outskirts of the city of 800,000. Soon, a tall alien being emerged from the ship, and shot a beam at a young boy. The young boy supposedly vanished.
The details of the case originated with Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, who related his findings to TASS. Silanov says that the newspaper took creative license with his report. The Russian newspaper stated that Russian scientists had confirmed the landing of an alien spaceship. This ship was flown by giant aliens who had small, beady eyes. Their spaceship was a large ball shaped object. According to the TASS report, 3 of these giant alien beings emerged from the craft, and strolled through a nearby park. The frightening robot never left their side.
Members of a crowd that had gathered near the craft stated that they had seen a three eyed alien about 10' tall, clad in silvery overalls and bronze colored boots and wearing a disk on his chest. The giant aliens must have been frightened by the small children, because one of the aliens pointed a weapon at one young boy, and caused him to disappear. The alien himself then disappeared into the ship. The children made various drawings of the aliens and their ship which were published in the newspaper.
It is quite certain that the reports of the Vononezh aliens were highly sensationalized, and it is probable that the event did not even happen in the first place. Until more corroborative eyewitness testimony is received, this case will remain in the folklore category.
