The bizarre report reportedly includes claims that aliens in the UFO transformed into a ball of light and turned 23 soldiers into stone. It was allegedly buried among thousands of U.S. intelligence agency declassified files published online.
The shocking report, made on March 27, 1993, is apparently the CIA translation of a report from the Ukraine-based newspaper Ternopil vechirniy. According to the newspaper report, many KGB files reached the CIA after Mikhail Gorbachev lost power in 1991.
The report stated that a military unit noticed a low flying saucer while in training in Siberia. One of the soldiers then fired a surface to air missile, bringing the UFO down, the report said. It further indicated that five short humanoids, having large heads and huge black eyes, got out.
Two survivor soldiers saw the five beings transformed into a white spherical ball of light, buzzed and hissed. The ball of light then exploded and turned 23 soldiers into stone, the report claimed. Two troops in a shaded area survived the alleged attack.
The report added that the remains of the petrified soldiers were transported to a secret research institution near Moscow as per KGB report.
