"One villager, Mr Sergei Ivanov, described what he saw: "It did not look like an aircraft, more like a UFO or some other unexplained object."
Soon a large array of officials inundated the area: Army chiefs, Air Defense personnel, Ministry of Defense officials, heads of police, Emergency Ministry staff, geophysicists, avionics experts and members of the secret service."
Why did no one pick up on this? Is it because people were too busy reporting on that other Russia UFO story, the dubious one with aliens talking to pilots in cat-like language? Was that story leaked to distract from this one? It was odd that one got so much attention, as it was based on a mysterious YouTube video uploaded a few days prior that doesn't even feature visuals or audio of the supposed alien visitors.
