Lake Baikal: Russia Reveals 'UFO Encounters'

Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, was the site of several UFO encounters, according to the Russian navy.

Declassified records going back a generation reveal several encounters with what are described as UFOs. Only a year ago were scientists were able to reach the bottom of Lake Baikal, located near the border with Mongolia.

In one case in 1982, military divers training at the lake said they spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silver suits at a depth of 50 metres.

They tried to catch the visitors but three of the seven men died in the process, while four others were severely injured in the incident, according to the records.


The records describe enounters not only with humanoid figures beneath the water, but also unidentified vehicles moving too quickly to be naval vessels.
Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says the materials are of great value.

“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,” he said.

UFOs 'Prefer Water' For Close Encounters
Lake Baikal, the scene of several unexplained incidents

12:09pm UK, Tuesday July 28, 2009 

Declassified files on the Russian Navy's encounters with UFOs have suggested the objects are big fans of water. A number of incidents were reported at Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world, including powerful lights and objects coming out from the water, Russia Today said;

In one case in 1982, military divers training at the lake said they spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silver suits at a depth of 50 metres.

They tried to catch the visitors but three of the seven men died in the process, while four others were severely injured in the incident, according to the records.

On another occasion, a nuclear submarine on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean detected six unknown objects. The captain of the vessel ordered the crew to bring it to the surface after failing to shake off the pursuers. The objects followed them up before flying away into the sky, the newly published files claimed.

Further mysterious events happened in the Bermuda Triangle area, including instruments on ships and submarines breaking down for no apparent reason. Former navy officer Rear Admiral Yury Beketov said deliberate disruption from UFOs, which were detected "moving at incredible speed", could have been to blame.

He said: "It was like the objects defied the laws of physics. There's only one explanation: the creatures who built them far surpass us in development."

The records, which date back to Soviet times, were compiled by a special navy group tasked with collecting reports of unexplained incidents from submarines and military ships.

NASA captures odd Circles in Thin Ice, Lake Baikal, Russia
Posted May 25, 2009 

Late in April 2009, astronauts aboard the International Space Station observed a strange circular area of thinned ice in the southern end of Lake Baikal in southern Siberia. Siberia is remote and cold; ice cover can persist into June. The upper image, a detailed astronaut photograph, shows a circle of thin ice (dark in color, with a diameter of about 4.4 kilometers); this is the focal point for ice break up in the very southern end of the lake. A sequence of MODIS images indicates that the feature was first visible on April 5, 2009.

Baikal contained another, very similar circle near the center of the lake above a submarine ridge that bisects the lake (ice circles are indicated by arrows in the lower MODIS image from April 20). Both circles are visible through April 20, 2009. Clouds cover the center of the lake until April 24, at which point the circular patch of thin ice was becoming a hole of open water. Similar circular ice patterns—although not nearly as distinct—have been documented in the same central area of the lake in April 1994 (during the STS-59 Shuttle mission) and in 1985 (during the STS-51B Shuttle mission).

While the origin of the circles is unknown, the peculiar pattern suggests convection (upwelling) in the lake’s water column. Ice cover changes rapidly at this time of year. Within a day, the ice can melt almost completely and freeze again overnight. Throughout April, the circles are persistent: they appear when ice cover forms, and then disappear as ice melts. The pattern and appearance suggest that the ice is quite thin. The features were last observed in MODIS images on April 27, 2009.

What can cause convection, bringing warmer waters to the surface? Hydrothermal activity and high heat flow have been observed in other parts of the lake, but the location of this circle near the southern tip, over relatively deep water, is puzzling.

Lake Baikal is unique in many regards. It is the largest (by volume) and deepest (1,637 meters at the deepest point) fresh water lake on Earth. It is also one of the world’s oldest lakes (25-30 million years old); sediment deposited on the bottom is up to 7 kilometers deep. The lake’s long, thin, and deep shape results from its location in the Baikal Rift Valley.

As a United Nations World Heritage Site, Lake Baikal is considered one of Russia’s environmental jewels. It is home to an amazing array of plants and animals, many of them unique to the ecosystem. The lake’s biodiversity includes fresh water seals and several species of fish that are not found elsewhere on Earth.

Un altro luogo dove sono stati riportati numerosi casi anomali è da individuarsi nel lago Baikal in Russia. 
Another area where many anomalous cases have been reported can be identified in the Lake Baikal in Russia. 

Vengono riportate le testimonianze di alcuni pescatori i quali affermano di aver visto delle luci molto intense risalire dal fondo del lago per poi planare in volo radente sulla superficie. 
It reports the testimony of some fishermen who claim to have seen the bright lights back from the bottom of the lake and then glide in skimming the surface.

"Io credo che l'ipotesi di basi sottomarine aliene non debba essere scartata", afferma Vladmir Azhazha. 
"I believe that the hypothesis of alien submarine bases should not be discarded," says Vladimir Azhazha. 

" Lo scetticismo è la strada più semplice: credere in niente, non fare niente. Le spedizioni oceanografiche raramente esplorano le grandi profondità marine. Per questo motivo è di massima importanza analizzare cosa i militari hanno visto lì sotto." 
"Skepticism is the easy way: to believe in nothing, do nothing. Oceanographic Shipments rarely explore the great depths. It is therefore of utmost importance to analyze what the military saw down there."

A circa una settimana dall'apertura degli UFO files da parte della Marina Militare Russa, il premier Vladimir Putin è stato protagonista di una missione esplorativa sul fondo del Lago Baikal, in Siberia. 
About a week after the UFO files from the Russian Navy, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was involved in an exploratory mission to the bottom of Lake Baikal, in Siberia. 
Putin, a bordo di un mini sommergibile, è sceso in esplorazione del lago alla profondità di 1.400m.

Secondo le testate italiane che hanno dato la notizia, il motivo ufficiale della spedizione sarebbe l'osservazione di particolari cristalli gassosi strategicamente indispensabili per la politica energetica della Russia. 
According to Italian newspapers gave the news that the official reason for the expedition would be the observation of special crystals strategically vital gas to the energy policy of Russia. 

I giornali si sprecano in descrizioni folcloristiche di Putin come "macho" bisognoso di rafforzare la sua immagine pubblica. 
The newspapers abound in folklore descriptions of Putin as a "macho" in need of strengthening its public image.
Addirittura si prospetta un futuro viaggio di Super-Vladimir sulla Stazione Spaziale Internazionale.

Diciamoci la verità, un premier che prende il sottomarino per andare a visitare qualche cristallo sullo sfondo di un lago, ha il sapore di una storia di copertura malconcepita. 
Let's face it, a prime minister who took the submarine to visit a few crystals in the background of a lake, has the feel of a history of ill-conceived cover.

Alla richiesta dei giornalisti, se avesse intenzione di raggiungere prossimamente la Stazione Spaziale Internazionale, Putin ha risposto laconico: 
At the request of the journalists if he was going to soon reach the International Space Station, Putin replied laconically:
