It was strangely a declassified CIA report on a Russian military unit that was attacked by allegedly alien humanoids whose flying saucer was purportedly shot down by a missile from the ground.
The report, created on March 27, 1993 soon after erstwhile Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev lost power in 1991, was initially thought to be one of many KGB files which made their way to the CIA.
The alleged 250-page dossier on the UFO attack with pictures and witness testimonies was buried until recently when CIA declassifed thousands of such files, said a report in Express.co.uk.
The report was a translation from Ukrainian newspaper Ternopil Vechirniy but CIA report sourced it to the Canadian Weekly World News, a tabloid publishing fictional news headlines.
While its authenticity is suspicious, the report narrated the incident in detail. A flying saucer had appeared over a military training unit in Siberia and one of the soldiers fired a surface to air missile, bringing it down. “Five short humanoids with large heads and large black eyes got out,” the report said.
Thye emerged from the debris and turned into a brilliant white spherical ball of light that buzzed, hissed and then exploded. Ironic but 23 soldiers who stood watching it soon turned into stone, the report said.
The so-called remains of the ‘petrified soldiers’ were then transferred to a secret research institution near Moscow, it said.
“Specialists assume that a source of energy still unknown to Earthlings instantly changed the structure of the soldiers’ living organisms, having transformed them into a substance whose molecular structure was no different to limestone,” the Russian report apparently revealed.
The CIA report further added saying, “If the KGB file corresponds to reality, this is an extremely menacing case… The aliens possess such weapons and technology that go beyond all our assumptions.”
