Lake Baikal: Russia Reveals 'UFO Encounters'
Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, was the site of several UFO encounters, according to the Russian navy.
Declassified records going back a generation reveal several encounters with what are described as UFOs. Only a year ago were scientists able to reach the bottom of Lake Baikal, located near the border with Mongolia.
In one case in 1982, military divers training at the lake said they spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silver suits at a depth of 50 metres.
They tried to catch the visitors but three of the seven men died in the process, while four others were severely injured in the incident, according to the records.
The records describe enounters not only with humanoid figures beneath the water, but also unidentified vehicles moving too quickly to be naval vessels.
Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says the materials are of great value.
“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,” he said.
