1920, KRASNOGORSKOYE, ALTAY, RUSSIA, T. BARABASHIN et I. SHIFER:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 2000, sensation author Vladimir Azhazha wtote in one of his books that near Krasnogorskoye, Altay region, West Siberia, Russia, in 1920, two military officers on special assignment in the area, T. Barabashin from the counter-intelligence branch of the VChK - predecessor to the KGB - and I. Shifer, also a secret service officer, were performing a search in the remote area.

Riding horses, they neared a remote mountainous gorge surrounded by thick forests when they suddenly stumbled upon an extraordinary scene, something that they had never seen before in their lives.

They encountered a group of "humans" wearing dirty robes performing what appeared to be "slave" work, extracting ore from a nearby mine. All the men were behaving in a strange manner, they all had expressionless glassy eyes and all moved around like zombies or robots, displaying a total lack of emotion, performing the arduous job in a totally monotonous manner. Over the group of men, hovered in midair a tetrahedron-shaped object, that appeared small, the length of its lower section was no more than 60cm.

This object flew over the "work force" to different locations, descending and ascending, apparently observing everyone's movements very closely. After watching the incredible scene for a few minutes, both men hid behind a large stone amid some bushes, still observing the scene from a distance fearing exposure the whole time.

At this point, the men could also now see several cigar-shaped objects hovering in the sky. These looked like flying "barrels" about 20-25 meters long and approximately 5 meters in diameter. These objects were apparently securing the perimeter and guarding the entire area. The stunned observers could also see other flying craft - small oval-shaped machines, which flew about emitting bright beams of blue light. The beams of blue lights were at times projected towards the ground. Somehow the men understood that these objects were some kind of "combat flying machines".

Deeper in the gorge, the men saw several other types of unknown machines: some pyramidal in shape and very tall, apparently dozens of meters in height, those were apparently the "main" flying craft. Near the large pyramid- shaped objects, Barabashin and Shifer saw a group of tall humanoid entities dressed in shiny metallic-like outfits, they appeared to be doing something but because of the distance the witnesses could not tell exactly what they were doing.

Afraid of being found out both men left their hideout and quickly returned to their VChK office and reported their stunning discovery. But several days later when a heavily armed detachment was sent to check on the information they found nothing, nothing seemed out of place and they could see no traces. So both men were then accused of providing false data to superior officers.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Krasnogorskoye, Altay region, West Siberia, Russia, un 1920 at an unknown time, " Two military officers on special assignment in the area, T. Barabashin from the counterintelligence branch of the VChK (predecessor to the KGB) and I. Shifer also a secret service officer were performing a search in this remote area. Both men, riding in horses had neared a remote mountainous gorge surrounded by thick forests when they suddenly stumbled upon an extraordinary scene, something that they had never seen before in their lives. They encountered a group of “humans” wearing dirty robes performing what appeared to be “slave” work, extracting ore from a nearby mine. All the men were behaving in a strange manner, they all had expressionless glassy eyes and all moved around like zombies or robots, displaying a total lack of emotion, performing the arduous job in a totally monotonous manner. Over the group of men hovered in midair a tetrahedron shaped object. The object appeared small, the length of its lower section was no more than 60cm (it was evidently a non-piloted device).

This object flew over the “work force” to different locations, descending and ascending, apparently observing everyone’s movements very closely. After watching the incredible scene for a few minutes, both men hid behind a large stone amid some bushes, still observing the scene from a distance fearing exposure the whole time. At this point the men could also now see several cigar shaped objects hovering in the sky. These resembled like flying “barrels” about 20-25 meters long and approximately 5 meters in diameter. These objects were apparently securing the perimeter and guarding the entire area. The stunned observers could also see other flying craft---small oval-shaped machines, which flew about emitting bright beams of blue light. The beams of blue lights were at times projected towards the ground. Somehow the men understood that these objects were some kind of “combat flying machines”.

Deeper in the gorge the men saw several other types of unknown machines: some pyramidal in shape and very tall, apparently dozens of meters in height, those were apparently the “main” flying craft.

He comments: "Who were those unfortunate forced laborers? Had they been permanently abducted by negative entities years before? What were they doing in that remote area of West Siberia? "

Points to consider:

Those who red the excellent book "Les OVNIS en Russie" by Boris Shurinov know what to think of the claims by Valdimir Azhazha!
