Location. Kiev, Ukraine
Date: Summer 1947
During reconstruction work in the city of Kiev that was
substantially ruined during World War II, construction workers
sifting through the ruin's foundations accidentally stumbled
upon an extraordinary object at the location where the Kiev
conservatory was located.
The object was buried 5-6 meters underground. The strange object
was a silvery, seamless streamlined cylinder arrow-shaped
object, about 3-3.5 meters in diameter and 5-6 meters long. Its
rear part was evenly cut apparently torn from the other part of
the object. The object had auxiliary narrow attachments on its
sides that gave the object the appearance of an arrow.
The finding was excavated and military field engineers were
called out. The site was immediately cordoned off. It was
speculated that the object could be some foreign missile. In top
secrecy, the object was loaded upon a truck platform, covered by
a tarpaulin and transported from the Ukraine to a Russian
location named Podlipki, a place located northeast of Moscow
(later this city was called Kaliningrad and now it is the town
of Korolyev in the vicinity of Moscow). There, the first Soviet
missile research center was established.
The finding received the most detailed study. It was established
that the object had been underground for several thousands of
years (approximately 3,000 to 5,000 years). In fact the object
was originally found in the XIX century or at the beginning of
the XX century, long before the October 1917 Revolution by the
famous archeologist Vikentiy Khvoyka who discovered the so-
called Tripolian culture.
The scientist ordered location to be dug up as deep as possible;
it was very difficult to extract the object from the hole in the
The governor of Kiev was invited by the Tsarist Police and
authorities to examine the finding. He attentively inspected the
object, but ordered buried again since he did not dare take
responsibility for such an extraordinary object impossible to
explain or study during that time. In 1947, Soviet scientists
and pioneer missile designers were lucky to be able to study
the re-discovered object with all its equipment in their
laboratory in Podlipki.
Upon examination it was established that only the front cockpit
section of the craft had been found. Originally the craft must
have been around 11-12 meters long. Unfortunately the engine
compartment was in the stern part that was never found. The
front section had been cut away as if by a laser beam. The craft
was obviously not of terrestrial origin and of non-human
manufacture, since it had 2 small chairs for two very small
pilots that had been obviously 1.2 meters in height (the cabin
was empty and the bodies were never found). Sophisticated
equipment, control instruments with levers, buttons, etc and
panels found inside.
The strangest thing was the unknown inscription in an unknown
language found inside the cabin. After deciphering the language
it was determined to have been ancient Sanskrit - or the ancient
Later speculation was that the object was some kind of ancient
'Vimana' described in ancient Indian manuscripts like the
'Vimanika Shastra', etc.
Sergey Pavlovich Korolyev, who later became an academician and a
famous Soviet missile designer, headed the group that was
created in top secrecy to study the discovered alien spacecraft.
Reportedly he said to his colleagues about the finding, 'The eye
can see, but the teeth can=E2't chew'. This obviously referring to
the fact that the craft was extremely advanced above the level
of science and technology of the USSR in 1947, and very little
of its structure could be understood and almost nothing could be
replicated. Despite that, something was apparently learned.
Extensive reverse engineering of the alien craft was conducted
in 50's, 60's and 70's.
Eventually, the finding considerably promoted Soviet missile and
space technology, including the design of metal alloys,
instrumental design, control systems and some construction
elements. Amazingly and shockingly to the West, 10 years after
the Kiev fi=D8=F8 nding, in 195
7 Korolyev launched the first satellite (Sputnik) to space and
in 1961 - Yuri Gagarin was the first human astronaut. This was
done by a country almost completely ruined and exhausted by
Stalin's repressions and by World War II and was considerably
behind the USA in aviation, space and missile technology.
When Soviet scientists were able to US laser equipment, several
parts from the object still being stored at Kaliningrad were cut
from the craft and sent out for detailed analysis.
This story was leaked by Mr. V Sukhoveev, resident of Kiev,
whose father (a known linguist) was called to decipher the
inscriptions found onboard the object. In 1962 S P Korolyev was
also called to examine another fragment of a crashed UFO found
in Orenburg Province southern Urals.
