Video: Preparing For Contact – Russia Unveils Monument To Aliens?!

While more recent tales of extra-terrestrial visits have come from Vladivostok and even – bizarrely – the former governor of Kalmykia, it is the legendary tales of Roswell-style incidents which have made the so-called Perm Anomalous Zone a mecca for UFOlogists.

And now the rumored visitors from afar have been commemorated in the country’s first monument to extra-terrestrials.

Lone visitor

The statue, which is 1.8 meters tall, shows a wooden alien apparently trying to get his bearings on an unfamiliar planet.

It was created by local woodcarver Viktor Sazanov and has been welcomed by Russia’s leading UFOlogist Nikolai Subbotin.
