St Petersburg, Russia
Stopped at night on the side of the road, two Russian truck
drivers were astounded by the sight of a spaceship before them
and amazed when one of the drivers was welcomed aboard.
On the night of 2nd November, 1989 the air temperature dropped
very suddenly to below freezing. Two professional Russian truck
drivers, Oleg Kirzhakov and his companion Nikolai Baranchikov
were driving their truck from near the area of Arkhangelsk to
They were hurrying home to finish all the formalities
related to their business trip before the holidays. In the
vicinity of Emtza railway station, the road was blocked by heaps
of sand and gravel.
The road in front of them was under repair
and Oleg had to turn onto a dirt road to detour. On one bend in
the road, the truck's headlights fell upon a huge structure,
which was standing off to the right of the road.
"I thought it was some kind of construction equipment," said
Oleg. "There were many machines there because the road was under
construction. However, when I drove closer, I saw a big object,
that in the headlights had a metallic sheen to it. When we got
to within 80–90 feet of the object, our motor stalled, and our
truck coasted several feet further and stopped.
that were connected to the back-up power source were still on.
My partner and I couldn't understand what had happened. The road
at this point had a bend in it and trees on the right side of
the road blocked our view of the object.
We understood that we
were seeing something very unusual in front of us, and were
afraid that something unavoidable would happen. Hence, I asked
Nikolai to remain in the truck and observe events while I
approached the object.
I left the cab and decided to approach
the object to examine it more closely. After I had passed the
hood of the truck, I began to feel, with each step I took, an
increased resistance from the air.
My body seemed to melt—it
became difficult to move, and I knew that if I got any closer to
the object, I would not be able to move at all."
Oleg turned back toward the truck and tried to approach the
object from another direction. He moved carefully, stopping
after each step. He felt the same, constantly-increasing
resistance from the air.
He succeeded in coming to within about
30–36 feet of the object. He stopped on the shoulder of the road
and began to examine it very carefully. Very quickly, he came to
the conclusion that this object was not of Earthly origin.
Truly, it was something very unusual. In front of Oleg, there
stood a huge disc-shaped object, approximately 120–140 feet in
diameter, with a dome-shaped top, on which no other structures
Along the perimeter of the disc, there were some
dark holes evident, which Oleg at first thought were portholes.
Extending from the lower part of the object, there were two
structures visible, which seemed to support the ship. The far
edge of the disc was slightly elevated, and was resting on some
birch trees, two of which were broken.
The object looked dark
and uninhabited and there were no traces visible of windows,
doors or hatches.
A fiery request
Why is this object here, in the middle of the forest, at night?
What is its purpose? Maybe something has gone wrong and it needs
All these questions flooded Oleg's mind and at that
very moment, in front of him, at a distance of an outstretched
hand, right in the air, appeared a glimmering red, dotted line.
This line formed a transparent, square-shaped screen, 150 mm x
150 mm in size, with rounded corners. Several words, written in
red letters, appeared on the screen. Oleg did not remember the
exact phrase, but the essence of the phrase was a request for
Oleg continued, "I realized that the screen was illuminated on
the body of the object. I mechanically turned to look back at
Nikolai, who was still sitting in the cab of the truck. Once
again, I observed the screen, but this time it appeared to be in
front of the truck.
I attempted to look from one side to the other, but no matter
where I turned my eyes, the screen remained in front of them.
The distance to the screen remained constant and I reached out
my hand to try to touch it. My friend, Nikolai, who was watching
these antics from the cab of the truck, later asked me why I
moved my hands.
The screen remained in front of me for the duration of the
contact. However, the inscriptions which appeared on the screen
remained only as long as was necessary for me to understand each
one and only then was the last inscription replaced by a new
Only after Oleg understood what was being demanded of him, he
carefully backed away from the object, constantly looking back
toward the truck, and still sensing the same resistance. He
returned to the truck and tried to open the right door of the
cab, in order to obtain some kitchen matches.
combined efforts of both men, they were not able to open the
door for a considerable length of time. Suddenly, the door was
able to be opened quite easily. Oleg removed the box of matches
from the truck's cabin, together with a bottle of laboratory
alcohol, which was used as an anti-freeze in the braking system.
Again asking Nikolai not to leave the truck, Oleg returned to
the same place on the shoulder of the road where he had stood
However, this time he was able to move easily and he
experienced none of the resistance he had encountered
previously. He gathered some dry leaves into a pile, poured on
some alcohol and ignited them.
Upon lifting his head, he
observed that a passage appeared on the surface of the object,
which extended into the interior, forming a corridor. At the
distant end of this corridor, he could see a glimmering, bluish
"At first, I had the impression that a shadow was moving inside
the corridor, but then I realized that something was moving in
the corridor toward the opening. When I finally realized what
was occurring, I began stepping backward and fell into the ditch
along the side of the road. I jumped back onto my feet and
continued to observe what was happening.
the opening and I saw that it was a dark "mass," which reminded
me of a bag or sack. As the "mass" moved, it swayed and bent
from side to side, and its periphery was vague in appearance. At
this moment, a shaft extended from the object, bent and
descended to the surface of the ground.
The "mass" slid down the
shaft, and while increasing in size, approached the fire of
burning leaves. I was paralyzed by fear! The "mass" stood by the
fire for a moment and then began to return to the object, taking
with it the box of matches. Returning along the same path, the
"mass" disappeared in the corridor, together with the box of
Only then did I finally succeed in extracting myself
from the ditch. I returned to the road and glanced back at my
truck again. The truck's headlights blinded me, but I
nevertheless could see the frightened face of Nikolai, which was
pressed forward tightly against the windshield."
An invitation to enter
For a long time, Oleg remained standing on the road, and was
unable to recover his senses. Realizing that he was witnessing
an event that he might never again experience, he decided to
wait and observe what would happen next.
He had a sudden wish to
observe the ship more closely and immediately an invitation to
enter the ship appeared on the screen, which remained visible in
front of him. After a short pause, Oleg decided to approach the
The first thing that caught his attention was several round
openings, approximately 300 mm in diameter, which at first he
interpreted to be portholes.
Inside these openings, at a depth
of 300–350 mm, a "grid" of intersecting lines, light grey in
color, was visible. The central axis of the openings was
displaced approximately 30 degrees from the plane formed by the
surface of the object.
Oleg was also able to examine one of the support legs that the
object rested on. The leg consisted of two parts, which were
connected at an articulating joint. The cross-section of each of
the two parts of the leg was in the profile of a three-sided
channel beam, with the lower part being smaller in diameter,
such that it could be folded inside the upper portion.
bottom of the ship, recessed areas were clearly visible into
which the legs could be retracted. However, because of poor
illumination in the area where the leg was located, Oleg was not
able to examine in detail the actual construction of the leg.
The far side of the object was resting on trees and was slanted
toward Oleg, such that the lower portion of the opening was just
above the level of his head. In order to establish the material
that the object was made of, Oleg wanted to touch it with his
A shaft came out of the portion of the object that was
nearest to him. It appeared to be a round, smooth tube, with a
diameter of approximately 50 mm. The tube was cold and felt
metallic. Then, events developed in the following manner:
"I had a desire to look inside, but since the door was above my
head, I decided to grab hold of the tube and jump. The instant I
grabbed the tube, I found myself standing just inside the
opening. There was nothing there in the form of either steps or
I did not feel any kind of external influence, but
rather everything seemed to happen naturally, or by itself. I
thought of the possibility of danger to me and decided to be as
careful as possible. At that instant, I received a message on
the screen that I had nothing to be afraid of, and that I could
Upon entering the corridor, I looked at the walls and
noticed the absence of doors. The corridor was significantly
wider than the opening, the floor was flat, and the walls and
ceiling formed an oval shape.
"I went along the corridor toward the shimmering light and felt
that I was walking on a flat, metallic floor. Somehow, I got the
feeling that the surrounding walls did not have simply a
decorative covering, but rather they were structural, and
something was connected to them from the back side.
clearly was some sort of strengthening device attached to them.
I did not want to touch the walls, so I am unable to say exactly
what it was that served to strengthen them."
Masses of Lights
Oleg had to proceed along the corridor for approximately 20–25
feet. At the end of the corridor, he saw that it entered into a
large hall with a diameter of approximately 60 feet. On the
periphery of the hall, there were five other entrances, similar
in appearance to the one through which he had just entered. The
ceiling in the hall was domed and it was emitting a soft,
diffuse, blue light.
Between the other entrances and along the
walls, there were panels of flashing lights. Each panel appeared
to consist of five or six vertical elements.
To the left of the
entrance through which Oleg had entered, two walls had no
panels. In place of the panels, there were horizontal recesses
in the walls, which were dark in color.
Also to the left, he
observed two dark, vague spots that looked like bags, which at
first were motionless, but then began to move toward him. The
bags were identical to the "mass" which he had seen near the
Oleg stopped, and stood motionless at the entrance to the hall.
"As soon as I looked around the hall, certain questions came to
me, answers to which appeared immediately on the screen. But
then I noticed that answers appeared in my head before I was
able to read them on the screen.
Several answers were
accompanied by demonstrations of the operation of those
structures that interested me. In such a manner, my question of
the significance of the dark, horizontal recess in the wall off
to my left was demonstrated to me.
The recess was a three-
dimensional information screen, on which I was shown the
interior of another sister ship, with the same moving 'masses'
(during the demonstration, the two 'masses' in our ship were
Then, they showed a ship in space, among the stars,
and at the end of the demonstration, they showed the presenter
of a Soviet television program called Vremya.
"Off to my right side, there was an oval control panel, or desk,
located about five feet from the wall, on which there were many
switches and lights. All of the illuminated buttons had a flat,
Some of them were elevated above the level of the
control panel, and others were flush with the top of the panel.
On the upper surface of the lamps, there were some symbols in
the form of geometric figures, e.g. circles, triangles,
quadrilateral figures, lines, etc., and combinations of the
The black switches on the panel were similar in
appearance to toggle switches. There were no meters or scales on
the control panel at all."
In addition, Oleg described a long, straight divan, which stood
next to the control panel, and a circular crack in the floor,
which surrounded the central part of the hall.
The crack gave
him reason to believe that the central part of the floor was
able to rotate, allowing the control panel to be positioned in
front of any of the vertical panels situated along the walls.
the vertical panels, Oleg noticed the same types of lights that
were on the control panel. Many of these lights were flashing.
The entire interior of the hall was white in color, including
the floor, and only from the ceiling shone soft, blue light.
Looking upward, Oleg tried to locate the source of the light,
while simultaneously asking about the nature of the light. No
answer to his question appeared on the screen.
Then, in response
to his question, "Who are you?" and "Where are you from?" the
dome in the hall slowly started to dim, and like in a
planetarium, a star map appeared on the ceiling.
While Oleg was trying to find some familiar star system, one of
the stars suddenly began to pulsate and descend slowly. The
dark, almost black starlit sky, combined with the pulsating star
suspended over Oleg's head, as well as with the flashing lights
of the control and vertical panels, emitted enough light to
permit him to see all elements in the entire interior of the
In a minute, the pulsating star slowly rose and the
dome illuminated with the diffuse blue light. Oleg was unable
to carefully study and remember the star map shown to him. He
asked where this pulsating star was located. They answered,
"This is in your galaxy".
"I asked question after question. The answers I received were
heard in my head before I saw them on the screen. I asked, 'What
kind of ship am I on now? What kind of propulsion system do you
use to make it fly?'
In response I was told that this spacecraft
was a scout ship and used electromagnetic fields to fly. I was
also told that they were studying our planet, which they need as
a springboard to the future.
In response to my question 'Do you have any connection with
Bigfoot?', they said, 'Yes' and added that they watch Bigfoot
As I was asking question after question, I
suddenly noticed that a third 'mass' had appeared in the hall
and then a fourth.
I watched a conversation take place between them and came to the
understanding that the time for me to leave had arrived. My next
thought was to leave something with them for a memory.
off my watch, and wanted to put it on the floor, but at that
moment, I was told that they had a complete knowledge of the
Earth and needed nothing. For the first time during this visit,
they asked me, 'Why do I use a watch made in another country?'
"Then I asked, 'Is it possible to see you once again?' They
said, 'If you are in danger we will find you within 15 seconds'.
"Backing out a few steps from the hall, I turned and went along
the corridor towards the opening. As I came up to the opening of
the spacecraft, I took hold of the tube by my right hand and I
immediately found myself standing on the ground.
back, I went to the ditch and crossed over to the road, to the
same place where I had stood a few minutes before. When I looked
back, I noticed that the tube and the opening had disappeared.
After a few seconds, I saw the outer rim begin to move in a
clockwise direction. The dome began to move approximately 30
seconds later in a counterclockwise direction and a luminescence
surrounded the spacecraft.
As the revolutions became faster, the
luminescence enveloped the spacecraft and it became a ball of
Oleg noticed that the rotation of all parts of the craft and the
luminescence was happening in absolute silence. At this moment
he saw on the road two more cars with their headlights on. For a
few seconds this distracted his attention from the spacecraft.
The sound of the trees cracking made him turn and look at the
spacecraft. The ball of light slightly shifted position and
slowly began to rise. Abruptly accelerating, the craft shot out
of sight towards the north east.
His friend Nikolai got out of
the truck and together with the occupants from the other
vehicles, came up to Oleg. They asked him a lot of questions.
Oleg was impressed by the experience but at the same time, was
too moved to speak or fully realize all that had just happened.
His hands and legs were trembling. When he got into his truck,
he was unable to use the accelerator or to shift gears. He had
to let his partner drive.
Oleg leaned back on the truck seat and looked at his watch,
which he still had in his hand. From the moment the truck had
stopped, 20 minutes had passed. They still had a day and a half
to get to Moscow, their destination. ?
