A giant “UFO fragment” has fallen from the sky near a remote village in Siberia

The U-shaped object, resembling a silvery dome, is currently under inspection   by Russian experts, after being covertly removed under cover of night from   the possession of villagers who found it.

After discovering the device on Sunday, locals from the village of Otradnesnky   had managed to drag the “UFO fragment” from the thick forest where it had   fallen. They attached it onto a trailer and took it through the snow to   their village, where local inspectors then examined it before alerting   Moscow authorities.

In an official statement, Sergey Bobrov, who found the object, agreed to keep   it safe.

But following their stealthy removal of the 200-kilogram metal fragment,   police have it under close guard, on orders from unnamed authorities.

The device has not had its provenance confirmed as of yet. However, the object   does not come from a rocket or missile or be in any way associated with   terrestrial space technology, it has been announced.

“The object found is not related to space technology. A final conclusion can   be made after a detailed study of the object by experts,” said Roscosmos, theRussianspace agency.

Experts have also examined the object to determine whether it poses a hazard.

“We measured the radiation level near and inside the object. We found no   radiation here,” said Yuri Bornyakov, who heads the rescue service   department of the Kuybyshevsky district in the Novosibirsk region.

Part of the fragment is made of ultra-strong titanium, said Valery Vasiliev,   the head of the Kuybyshevsky Department for Civil Defence and Emergency   Situations.

Speculation that it had come from a bungled Kazakhstan rocket or satellite   launch was also denied.

“You can see inside it, all is open, it’s empty, no danger here. We were asked   to take and store it. We brought it here. And now we are going to wait until   they come to take it if they need it,” said local police spokesman Sergei   Sulein.
