End June 1947, Bahamut, Aqmola, Kazakhstan, Alexey Romanovich Bodnya:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Citing Russian authors of unknown credibility, ufologist Albert Rosales reported circa 2009 on a case in Bahmut (so such place, it is likely "Bahamut"), Kokchetav region, Kazakhstan, that occurred - allegedly - in the end of June 1947.

About midnight, 18-year-old local herdsman Alexey Romanovich Bodnya, from a nearby collective farm, suddenly noticed a brightly lit circle shining on the grass on the field, somehow resembling a micro-tornado. Then he heard a loud metal clicking sound, and when he looked up, he was stunned to see a disc-shaped object, about 25 meters in diameter.

The disc was bright and shaped like to deep saucers joined together, with a transparent dome on top and four landing legs protruded from the bottom and moved up and down in rhythm. The disk had a wide cylinder-shaped protrusion on its bottom that resembled a nozzle about 5 meters in diameter. A bright red-yellow rotating flame-like light was visible inside it. The surface of the disk was silver, almost mirror like, reflecting the ground and grass beneath it. Powerful searchlights could be seen on the craft as it approached for a landing.

The disk seemed to be unstable as if its flight control mechanism had been damaged, unable to maintain a horizontal position, as if about to tumble and crash, but it managed to land safely.

A ladder came out of the object and three aliens descended from the bottom section of the disk. When the round hatch opened Bodnya clearly heard metal clacking. The aliens were very tall, close to 3 meters in height, looking very much alike, almost like twins. Their faces were elongated, with large eyes rounder than human eyes, the noses were long, the lips thin, the foreheads high, the skin grayish-bluish.

They were dressed in silver reflecting tight-fitting overalls with head covering. All wore some type of sophisticated device suspended on their chest area.

One of the aliens was obviously the leader, he was gigantic, with broad shoulders, at least one meter taller than the other two. He wore a kind of "apron" in front with a light on his breast area. He was apparently giving orders to the other two. The giant had even white teeth, wide dense brown, large beard, and light brown hair, light colored eyes and a powerful voice.

One of the younger crewmembers was obviously in great distress as a result of their misfortune and was mumbling something and crying. In a harsh tone, the giant leader ordered him to stop. The witness could not understand a thing but the meaning was obvious. The transparent dome on top of the disk was lifted up in order to initiate the repair procedure. While being opened, a melodic vibrating sound was heard. The witness noticed that the transparent dome was made out of some crystalline substance, extremely strong in appearance.

The witness was also sure that there was a fourth alien inside the disk, since the alien was leader gave orders to someone inside using some kind of "microphone". That fourth crewmember was possibly a female who remained onboard the craft at all times.

The leader stood in the center and the other two were on each side as they conducted the repairs.

The stunned witness observed the emergency landing and repair of the disk hiding behind some shrubs with his horse, but suddenly his horse snorted loudly; which gave away his location. The aliens immediately shone a green beam of light in his direction. He received a clear impression that he had been photographed. The aliens seemed very curious and seemed to be enjoying themselves, as they looked him and his horse over.

After that, the giant leader looked straight at Bodnya's eyes and the latter was suddenly able to hear the alien's thoughts. The alien leader reproached him for hiding from them instead of greeting them like guests. His glance displayed kindness and understanding. He informed Bodnya that their craft had apparently been damaged by a lighting strike that affected their flight control mechanism. Bodnya then said, "I invite you to eat, you must be hungry, I know what hunger is from my childhood." The alien responded, "I see, I see, you are small but brave", and, pointing at the horse, "Who is that?" "That's my horse Serko", the witness responded.

The alien then told him that he was frightened of the horse and asked that it stays behind since he wanted to speak to him alone. The boy roped his horse and the giant alien took him by his hands and sat him on the rim of the disk. Bodnya got so close to the alien that he was able to listen to its heartbeat. Soon, Bodnya noticed a wolf slowly approaching his horse and yelled at the leader, "Look a wolf". The alien leader stretched his hand and emitted some kind or thunderous beam that killed the wolf instantly.

"Where are you from?" Asked Bodnya, and the giant replied by pointing at the sky and saying "From there". "Is there a God?" Bodnya asked next, "A God? maybe" answered the giant, who then asked Bodnya what was he doing there alone. He explained to the giant that he had been pasturing the bulls and horses. Next Bodnya asked if he could look inside the craft, and he was allowed to.

Inside, he saw a long corridor, some frame-like walls, and noticed that the ceiling was very high. He walked several steps into the craft but felt intense heat and nausea and could not continue. The giant then said, "Come here". The boy then rushed back and fell on the alien's arms, he could not remember what happened next, as he apparently lost consciousness to wake up sitting on the grass looking at the repair operations. He was sure he had been examined onboard and implanted with some type of device. The rest of the night, he watched the aliens finishing up their repairs. Bodnya noticed that the inner structure of the craft appeared very complicated, filled with sophisticated equipment.

After finishing their repairs, the aliens left behind a small cross-shaped metallic fragment, which the witness buried on the edge of the field intending to dig it out later. Unfortunately, he was never able to return to the site and eventually moved to Crimea. The fragment apparently is still in the area now. The disk rose up and zoomed up to the sky at incredible speed disappearing from sight in a moment.

Clear landing traces were left, observed by the other collective farmers whom he brought to visit the place the next day. He was threatened not to tell anyone of what he had seen.

In 1990 while living in the hamlet of Molodezhnyi in Crimea, he was sitting down one night drinking tea when he was suddenly enveloped by the same green beam of light he had seen years earlier. At this point the witness was able to ensue telepathic contact with aliens, this was possible because he had been implanted with a small communications device in 1947. The aliens informed Bodnya that their planet was sterile and that they were vegetarians and that they had a base on the moon; which was covered with a transparent glass dome. They expressed contempt towards the human race and refused to reveal the location or name of their home planet. They confirmed that there was life after death and predicted coming catastrophes that would affect humanity.

When Bodnya asked them why they did not contact humanity openly, their curious answer was, "Why don't humans contact those in an insane asylum?"

And the story ends there, apparently.

HC addendum

Type: B or G? And F

High Strangeness Index: 7

Reliability of Source: 8

Comments: It would be helpful if the metallic fragment if located. Interesting early contact case from Russia.

Points to consider:

I did not find anything on "Yuri Pugachev".

"A. S. Kuzovkin" was a UFO witness in 1964 who became interested in the issue, and apparently wrote UFO articles for the popular magazine "Vokrug Sveta" (in English "Arount the World"), a popular magazine geography published since 1861.

Anton Anfalov is a ufologist who corresponded with Albert Rosales to provide him with stories amd reports from the Eastern countries. Anfalov explained to me that in doing so, he did not claim that these stories were all to be taken seriously.

As almost always with stories from the former USSR in the catalog by Albert Rosales, sources are imprecise (names of authors are given, but no year, no title, etc.) and it is impossible for me for the moment to go up the "trail" for this story, which leaves me with a story of unknown credibility, doubtful in any case.

Regarding the credibility of Russian writings on UFOs, one may want to read the excellent book by Boris Shurinov "OVNIS en Russie - Les Deux Faces de l'Ufologie Russe" ("UFOs in Russia - The Two Faces of Russian Ufology"), which shows how, alongside serious ufology, there is a rampant sensationalistic movement, with writers writing stories for which one would look in vain for the slightest corroboration.

For this specific case, it seems obvious to me that all this is only a tall tale of the "contactee" kind, Eastern country version.

I show an example of contradiction in the story - most of invented stories have such inconsistencies:

First we are told that the leaving aliens "left behind a small cross-shaped metallic fragment"; which the alleged "witness buried on the edge of the field intending to dig it out later." That is, hard evidence is given to the witness by the aliens. Why he would bury it to get it later is already odd.

Then we are told that he would certainly have returned to the site to get the buried object, but "unfortunately, he was never able to return to the site and eventually moved to Crimea." So, he was unable to go back to the site apparently because he had to move to Crimea.

And then, we learn that... "clear landing traces were left, observed by the other collective farmers whom he brought to visit the place the next day." So he was unable to return the site but returned to the site. Silly mistake!
