Soviet Union Declassified UFO Encounters Revealed

Aug 09, 2023
"We have confirmed that several of these unidentified objects are indeed solid." So said the leader of the Pentagon's most recent investigation into UFOs, which you probably know today as UAP. The long culture of ridicule is officially over, UFOs are real, they are here and no one has any idea who is building them. But while UFOs have been a part of American culture for almost a century, the world would be surprised by the disturbing similarities between events occurring in the US and in a world far away, behind the impenetrable Iron Curtain. The secrecy is over, and what has come from


sources both within the former Soviet government and the CIA itself is nothing short of terrifying.

Soviet UFO sightings last as long as American sightings, but most Soviet citizens had no idea what was happening in their own backyards. Thanks to a strict culture of secrecy and censorship, it was not until Glasnost began to open up Soviet society that the secret of Soviet UFOs was finally


. Some media outlets intentionally dramatized relatively ordinary events while exercising newly acquired freedoms and pushing to see how far they could take things. However, many very real UFO-related events occurred, and some were prominent enough to catch the attention of CIA spies behind the Iron Curtain. On January 29, 1986 at 7:55 pm, a surprising event occurred on Hill 611 near the village of Dalnegorsk in Primorskiy Kray.

This small mining town has no importance, but that night it would become the most important place in the entire Soviet Union. That night, several villagers observed a reddish sphere flying towards the city from the southeast. The object flew noiselessly and appeared to be an almost perfect, rust-red sphere. He got close enough that people could see that the outer skin of this strange ship was flawless and had no obvious control surfaces or means of propulsion. For a while, the object floated up and down over the village, moving at a relatively slow pace. As it ascended, it would shine brighter and dim as it descended.

Suddenly, the object seemed to be in danger. All witnesses later interviewed by Soviet authorities recalled how the object suddenly “shook” or “jumped” and then fell like a stone directly onto Hill 611. Witnesses heard a dull thud upon impact and then began to burn intensely for a while. one hour. Valeri Dvuzhilni, head of the Far Eastern Committee for Anomalous Phenomena, arrived at the scene two days after the accident. He realized that, although everything was covered in deep snow, the accident site was completely devoid of it, allowing him to observe splintered silica rocks, which could only have happened due to extreme temperatures.

The rocks also had a “smoky” appearance, as if they had been exposed to intense heat. However, Dr. Dvuzhilni also found physical evidence of the ship. Throughout the site and embedded in the rocks themselves he discovered pieces of silver metal. Some were fragments, but a large amount had formed into droplets, almost as if they had been "sprayed" onto the area. This detail would become significant after the fall of the Iron Curtain, when Western ufologists compared notes with their Eastern counterparts; American witnesses had very often reported seeing flying orbs that seemed to "spray" metal while showing signs of some type of distress.
At the edge of the accident site was a tree stump that had been badly burned and was emitting a strange chemical smell. The physical remains were examined at the Omsk branch of the Academy of Sciences, which made a surprising discovery. Some of the fragments had formed what appeared to be small webs, and when examined they were found to be made of very thin, torn threads 17 micrometers wide. Each strand consisted of even thinner fibers tied into braids, and intertwined with the fibers were fine wires of solid gold. The technology to replicate this type of delicate nanoconstruction would not appear on Earth for decades, at least not in human hands.
The fragments that formed iron balls were also subjected to a series of tests. Each ball was made of iron with various levels of aluminum, manganese, nickel, chromium, tungsten and cobalt. This seemed to rule out a natural creation and that the object was simply a very peculiar meteorite. Rather, he largely confirmed that the object was constructed from heterogeneous alloys. When the balls were melted in a vacuum chamber, they reacted in several ways: on one base they melted and spread as expected, but on another they formed smaller balls with convex, glass-like structures. But the fusion of the remains


yet another mystery: the gold, silver and nickel would disappear from the balls and be replaced by molybdenum, despite not being present in the test chamber disinfected before the tests began.
The metallic remains would confuse Soviet scientists, as they only raised more questions than answers. Almost the only thing they could identify were the ashes discovered at the site, belonging to a biological being. Perhaps the ashes belonged to an unfortunate animal caught in the accident. Or maybe they belonged to the operator of the mysterious UFO. Unfortunately, the intense heat made any attempt at identification impossible. Unable to extract details from the wreckage, the investigation focused on the object itself before it crashed. The trajectory reported by eyewitnesses matches the flight path taken by rockets launched by China's Xichang Cosmodrome.
However, researchers were unable to verify whether any launches had taken place in January from the complex, and the Chinese did not provide any answers, probably seeking to keep their space program as secret as possible. However, the investigation revealed something very surprising: Soviet citizens were not the first to detect this mysterious object, the Chinese had already observed it on their own territory. Just days before the accident, witnesses near the Xichang Cosmodrome reported a similar red sphere on January 25. According to witnesses, the object seemed to simply float, almost as if it were observing the cosmodrome directly. After half an hour he disappeared.
However, the Chinese sighting was not the only clue that this object had traveled great distances; There was also physical evidence. Examination of the soil at the crash site revealed small pieces of light gray soil, but only in the area where the object is presumed to have made direct contact before exploding and largely disintegrating. Subjected to spectroscopic analysis, the light gray soil was compared to soil from another area of ​​Russia, thousands of kilometers away. The soil matched the tuffs of the Yaroslaval area, northeast of Moscow, and contained characteristic elements found there and not in the Dalnegorsk area.
Whatever had crashed there, it was obvious that someone came looking for it. Eight days after the accident on Hill 611, at 8:30 pm on February 8, 1986, eyewitnesses once again reported strange objects in the sky. This time, two yellowish spheres flew towards the city from the north. The spheres seemed to be searching for something and headed straight for the crash site. Once there, they circled the crash site four times, then turned north and flew back the way they had come. Was it a search and rescue effort by whatever had sent the original sphere there? Or just something that wanted to make sure there were no identifiable remains?
To this day, no one knows, but reports of flying spheres exactly mirror similar reports from across the ocean in the U.S. And the following year, whoever had visited the sleepy mining town came back with a vengeance. November 28, 1987- 11:24 p.m. Reports of flying orbs flood a local military base. Terrified villagers report seeing up to 32 flying objects, spread across twelve different nearby villages. Alarmed Soviet military personnel quickly headed to the nearest villages and observed the strange flying lights for themselves. Before the night was over, hundreds of civilians and military personnel would witness one of the largest mass UFO sightings in history.
The objects seemed specifically interested in Dalnegorsk, and thirteen of them separated and flew directly to the mining village. Once there, three of them hovered stationary over the town, while five seemed to illuminate the nearby mountain and the crash site. They seemed to move without discernible propulsion and made no noise, floating at different altitudes between 150 and 800 meters. As the lights flew over houses, people reported failures in their electrical equipment. Interior Ministry agents would later state that they observed multiple objects at 11:30 p.m. An object flew towards them from the Gorely settlement, leaving a flame of fire behind it.
At the head of the flame was an opaque sphere, and within that sphere was another smaller red sphere. At a local quarry, witnesses observed a large cylindrical object the size of a five-story building flying directly toward them. The object was about 200 or 300 meters away, its front illuminated like burning metal. Terrified that the object might crash into them, many of them fled for cover. The quarry director observed that the object was moving at an altitude of about 300 meters. Large and cigar-shaped, this description would also fit exactly with that given by American and Western European witnesses of very similar objects.
The object appeared to fly without the aid of wings and without discernible propulsion, and made no noise as it flew over the quarry. Nearby, a kindergarten teacher observed an elongated, dark, metallic-looking object, which she estimated to be between 10 and 12 meters long. This object seemed to be in front of a bright, blinding sphere of light that floated silently at the height of a nine-story building. The object hovered over a school and shot a half-meter-wide bluish-violet beam toward the ground in front of the school. The professor commented that the objects captured by the beam did not create shadows as would be expected if they were illuminated from above.
The object then left the school and moved to a nearby mountain. According to her, the object seemed to be searching for something and was emitting a reddish light similar to a spotlight towards the mountain. Finally, the object simply flew off over the mountain and out of sight. The crash and subsequent UFO invasion of Dalnegorsk would remain secret for years, but once it headed west, the similarities between this event and multiple similar events in the US would convince researchers that both Americans and The Soviets were observing the same mysterious phenomenon. . Cigar-shaped objects and mysterious balls of light are a type of UFO commonly reported in the US for decades, and multiple eyewitnesses have reported what they thought were malfunctioning air or spacecraft of some kind. and that they swung up and down, as reported by the Dalnegorsk witnesses. while emitting a shower of what appeared to be molten metal.
Interestingly, some of the ships described by the Dalgenarsk witnesses bear a strong resemblance to the infamous US Navy tick-tock video, filmed by fighter pilots intercepting an unidentified aircraft over the Pacific Ocean. But this is not the only parallel between American and Soviet UFO sightings, because while the United States had Roswell, the Soviets also had their own close encounter with extraterrestrial beings, and their encounter had more and better witnesses than Roswell. "It is neither a joke, nor a hoax, nor a sign of mental instability, nor an attempt to stimulate local tourism by attracting the curious," said the Soviet state press agency TASS, speaking of a close encounter with a UFO in 1989.
According to the official report, on the afternoon of September 27, two boys and a girl from a local school were playing in a park. At approximately 6:30, the children observed something pink shining in the sky, followed by a deep red ball that they estimated to be 9 meters in diameter. A small crowd gathered as the ball appeared to land and a trap door opened at the bottom of the ball. From inside the ball, three aliens with three eyes each, almost 3 meters high, emerged. The aliens seemed to have a robot companion with them, which they activated with a touch. As the crowd watched in amazement, the aliens seemed to communicate with each other, ignoring the onlookers, until a child screamed in terror.
Suddenly, one of the aliens fixed its three eyes on the boy and caused him to be temporarily paralyzed. The three aliens then re-entered their vehicle, but quicklythey reappeared; one of them was carrying what the crowd thought was some kind of weapon. The alien pointed the tube at a 16-year-old boy who suddenly disappeared, only to reappear after the aliens re-entered their ship to leave. The story was met with both ridicule and serious investigation, as is typical in UFO reports. To this day, accounts vary: a Soviet news correspondent sent to the city with a film crew was unable to find any eyewitnesses to the aliens except children.
However, they spoke with the local police chief, who confirmed an important detail of the story: he had also seen a large ship flying silently shortly before the supposed landing. Soil analysis discovered high concentrations of radioactive isotopes in the landing zone, but this was inconclusive, as after the Chernobyl disaster it was not uncommon to discover small pockets of highly concentrated radioactive isotopes. However, the curious thing is that if it was a hoax, the children simply chose a landing site with such high concentrations of isotopes, which would require analysis in a laboratory to even identify it. Even more curious, when the researchers separated the children into different rooms, they all drew almost exactly the same craft from memory.
The craft was also said to leave a mysterious 1970s, it is almost impossible that children or the police chief would have had access to such a magazine. But why weren't there others? Eyewitnesses of the extraterrestrial beings themselves? You only have to look at the culture of ridicule surrounding UFOs to understand why a group of adults in the repressive communist Soviet Union would not want to talk about such an extraordinarily strange event. As highlighted in recent US UAP research, a culture of ridicule has hampered our efforts to collect good data, with pilots self-censoring for fear of ridicule and having it affect their future careers.
The US Air Force and Navy took that recommendation so seriously that they immediately instituted new guidelines for reporting UFOs, ending the infamous century-long culture of ridicule that has silenced witnesses even among the most elite military units in the United States. However, Soviet pilots spent a long time reporting on UFOs and were sometimes even killed by them. During a routine flight over the city of Borisov, two Soviet fighters detected a large flying disc near the city. Five rays of light seemed to emanate from the disk: two pointed towards the sky and three pointed towards the ground. Ground control ordered the patrol to fly for a closer look, an act that would condemn one of the pilots.
As it approached, the disk suddenly flew to match the speed and level of the lead Soviet fighter. Suddenly, he aimed one of his beams directly at the plane, filling the cabin with blinding light. The co-pilot was at the controls and the flight logs record him reporting a bright beam of light entering the cockpit and projecting a point about 20 centimeters in diameter. This beam of light passed through the cockpit and directly through the pilot's body, and both the pilot and co-pilot reported extreme heat. The plane diverted and immediately returned to base. Shortly after, the co-pilot's health immediately deteriorated with frequent fainting that forced him to retire.
However, the plane's commander died a few months after the incident and the cause of death was cancer. However, this would not be the only report of a UFO shooting beams of light. A


CIA report notes a meeting with hundreds of eyewitnesses, including Major V Loginov, outside the city of Omsk. In his own official report, the Major states that he and other witnesses saw a strange object in the sky that radar could not detect. The object passed overhead at an altitude of several kilometers, revealing a bright sphere one and a half times larger than the current full moon.
The object projected four very bright rays of light, sometimes parallel to the ground and sometimes at an angle. The UFO flew over a civilian airport for five minutes and even descended a little. Suddenly, the rays of light disappeared and a rotating plume trail appeared around the glowing sphere. With an extraordinary burst of speed, the object took off toward the east. Pilots at a second nearby airport reported seeing the object but were unable to detect it on their radars. Immediately relaying the sighting up the chain of command, five minutes later other military personnel in Altay Kray reported that they had the same object under visual observation.
Taking time and distance into account, the object appeared to have traveled 600 kilometers at a speed of about 7,000 kilometers per hour. UFO sightings were so frequent in the Soviet Union that the declassified CIA report also notes a meeting of 100 Soviet scientists from various disciplines who met to discuss the dramatic increase in UFO sightings in the 1970s and 1980s. It is now known that some reports of UFOs within the Soviet Union were highly secret American air and spacecraft. Other sightings were wrongly attributed to everything from secret rocket launches to failed rockets or simply spent rocket stages. However, as multiple American UFO investigations revealed, there still remained a significant number (around 5%) of sightings that simply could not be explained.
And most disturbing of all were reports from Soviet nuclear facilities on unidentified ships that perfectly mirror similar reports from the United States in the same period. In a high-profile encounter, a UFO almost started World War III. Colonel Boris Solokov spoke to Western UFO investigators after the fall of the Soviet Union, reporting that on the night of October 4, 1982, there was a breach in the airspace over a nuclear weapons site in Usovoin, Ukraine. Solokov, who was working in the Kremlin at the time, described receiving alarmed reports from the facility, whose operators informed him that all of its launch panels had suddenly activated on their own, something that should have been impossible.
For four hours, the entire facility watched a UFO hover directly overhead. As it floated, the control panels that could launch the nuclear weapons stored there suddenly came to life, something that could only have happened with the entry of the proper launch codes. The incident sparked a ten-year investigation by the Soviets into the UFO phenomenon, which they kept secret until the end of the Cold War. This event closely mirrors a similar incident at the US nuclear facility at Minot Air Force Base, when security personnel observed a UFO hovering above silos containing US nuclear-tipped Minuteman missiles. According to witnesses, the missiles were briefly activated and entered launch status, despite not having received such authorization or order from their control centers.
Perhaps not surprisingly, reports of UFOs around Soviet nuclear facilities remain very difficult to verify, but the Soviet Union had a large number of supernatural sightings that only increased in number as the Cold War progressed. At 4:05 in the morning on September 20, 1977, a group of dock workers in Petrozavodsk witnessed a blinding light on the horizon coming from Lake Onega. The light approached the sleeping city before taking the form of a glowing jellyfish which, according to eyewitnesses, began to float above the city and cast thin rays of light towards the city. The dockworkers were terrified, worried that their nation was under attack;
This being the height of the Cold War, paranoia about a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States was in full swing. After twelve minutes of shooting beams of light toward the city, the UFO once again transformed into a glowing semicircle and shot off in the direction it had come. It suddenly turned upwards and tore through the clouds, leaving a fiery red hole where it had passed that quickly dissipated. Later that morning, more witnesses would come forward and the list would grow from the initial dock workers to police officers, sailors, an ambulance crew and a reporter from the state news agency.
Under pressure to avoid total alarm, the journalist would publish an article three days later calling the phenomenon "strange" and "natural." The object left no physical evidence except for a photograph supposedly taken of the object by one of the witnesses. However, given the veil of secrecy that reigned in the Soviet Union at the time, the photograph has been impossible to verify. However, neighboring local governments were so alarmed by the incident that they demanded a response from Kremlin leaders. Unable to give a satisfactory answer, the event was taken to the Academy of Sciences, where the most prolific scientific minds of the Soviet Union worked.
They could not find an explanation for the sighting, but after some research they concluded that the UFO phenomenon was very real and required more dedicated investigation. The Academy's secret investigation began a year later and continued until the collapse of the Soviet Union. Known unofficially as "the Network," this government-backed investigation lasted thirteen years and had one goal: to scientifically understand the UFO phenomenon. The Network had the support of 20 different organizations, made up of specialists in physics, chemistry, optics and spectroscopy. The initial research was kept top secret for two reasons: either it would verify the existence of extraterrestrial life or the findings could have some kind of defense value.
The Network also had to coordinate its investigation with the Ministry of Defense, a task that generated some conflict. When scientists working for the Network found a mystery that needed scientific investigation, the Ministry of Defense simply saw a threat or potential enemy. Therefore, the two sides had very different approaches in their UFO investigations. Still, the two sides worked together to collect data on UFOs. The Network collected reports from scientific institutes and Soviet citizens, while the Ministry of Defense collected them from within the Soviet military. Perhaps prompted by repeated violations of their airspace by highly advanced American aircraft (first the U2 and then the Blackbird spy plane), Soviet soldiers were under strict orders to report any mysterious phenomena, especially if it interfered with their equipment. .
This was in stark contrast to the United States, where a culture of ridicule had emerged in both the military and civilian sectors, despite multiple ongoing secret investigations by the Department of Defense. The Network would go on to investigate 3,000 UFO reports, debunking all but 300 of them, for which they had no explanation. These results would reflect both the US Air Force's Project Blue Book effort and the latest research on UAPs by the Department of Defense. But this debunking work was fundamental to the understanding of what was a real UFO and what was not, even when the secrecy of the Soviet Union made such work difficult: the Petrozavodsk event, for example, would be solved by an American engineer working for NASA, to gather pieces lost by the Soviets.
Using NASA's satellite tracking center, he discovered that the Soviets had launched an object from their top-secret cosmodrome in nearby Plesetsk at 3:58 a.m., just minutes before the sighting. However, this does not explain the motion witnessed and attested by many observers. Rockets can only rise, even if they do so at a very diagonal angle. They certainly cannot float and cannot lose or gain altitude at will. Could the UFO then be a response to the top secret launch minutes earlier? Or was it a case of bad witnesses who were very wrong about what they saw? We may never know the truth, but what we can be sure of is that something was recreating the exact same UFO phenomenon over the Soviet Union that was taking place in American skies.
