It happened on July 6, 1989, at approximately 2:30 pm (Moscow time). The children were coming from the river when one of them (Sasha Krasavin) noticed a kit hovering in the sky over the country. They had been walking on a street of "Boiarskoe" when the kite attracted their attention.
To get a better view of the kite, all of them went in that direction when Sasha Krasavin noticed near the kite a tiny luminous circular point. He directed their attention to this point and everybody noticed it also. In a few seconds the point grew in size and began to move down to the left of the witness, increasing in size. The color of the object was a yellow-orange and was luminescent.
The UFO came down and moved to the bushes then stopped and opened. The two hemispheres separated vertically and began to pulsate with light. They opened wide so that it was possible to see the bushes between them.
In 3 - 5 seconds after the landing, a humanlike figure, without a head, appeared between the hemispheres and went up the field in the direction of the countryside. In three steps the alien turned back and everybody noticed that the humanlike figure was very tall, higher than a man, like the height of a middle size bus, but very thin, as a board. It's arms were very long, lower than the knees. The coverall was gray, with black bootlike attire. In the middle of the alien chest was a bright yellow luminous disk. The brightness of the disk was pulsating (bright/dim). The alien's walk was unnatural. It moved like a robot. The knees didn't bend.
The light of the spaceship was pulsating, changing it's brightness. The object disappeared in some seconds after the alien began to move. At this very moment, the next point of light appeared near the hovering kite. It began to grow in size, and was as bright as the first one. The alien kept on moving, walking unnaturally. A few times the alien turned to the left and the right, when it reached the substation it disappeared.
In the direction of the village, Konantsevo, right behind the alien, some 40-50 meters aside, from behind the bushes appeared a woman dressed in red. She was walking along the road in the direction of the substation, which the road passed near by. When the children saw her they began to warn her, saying, "Don't go! There is an alien over there!" It was in vain, as the distance was very far and she did not hear them. When she came up to the bushes and the substation, she disappeared. In some seconds they saw her again, but 150 - 200 meters away and to the left, on the spot where they had seen the UFO standing. She was running away, wildly, to the riverside, to the left of the witnesses.
While the children were watching this scene, the second spaceship repeated the evolution of the first one. The alien came out and went in the direction to the bushes and disappeared. The third and fourth spaceships repeated the same movements as the first and second. The alien of the third spaceship came out and went in the direction of the riverside and then disappeared behind the bushes. The fourth spaceship opened, no one came out, the pulsating hemispheres disappeared as if someone switched it off.
A bit later the children went home.
One and a half months later, a group of UFO investigators from Moscow under the hand of Mr. Melkhiker arrived in Kharovsk. Mr. Melkhiker made arrangements from the parents of the children to hypnotize them. They, of course, recorded everything on video, tape recorder and took notes. Here are the most important facts of this story.
The story was repeated just as told before by Sergey Beliavskiy, the principle witness, and was described in present time frame.
"We are walking from the river, Sasha Krasavin pointed to the kite. We went to have a look at the kite. Suddenly, Sasha Krasavin noticed a small yellow-orange luminous point of light. It is growing very fast and moves down..."
And so on... he described everything but he kept saying, "I'm afraid!". Mr. Melkhiker told him, "Don't be afraid of them, Sergey! They will not harm you. You are a very courageous guy, come on, let's try to go nearer and have a better look at them." He went on to describe:
"They are very high. They have a head with three antennas on top of the head with tiny silver balls on the end of the antenneas. The coverall is gray, bootlike attire is black, but without a heel! They are three digited. The mouth looks like a triangle with the point on the top. There are two small black immobile points (eyes)."
Then Mr. Melkhiker said, "OK! Now, let's go to the spaceship."S: The spaceship has three portholes.
M: OK! look inside
S: I see three aliens in the spaceship. They are very high, but very unnaturally thin (about 5 cm).
He then went on to describe everything inside. The sketches included the steering console, with all symbols and knobs.
Mr. Melkhiker said, "OK, now please go to the country and try to find that woman in red."
He went and told him where she lives. Mr. Melkhiker immediately took a car and went to the appointed place. They found the woman, but she didn't remember anything. He was trying to hypnotize her but it was impossible. The nearer he came to the time he wanted to know about, she felt a terrible pain in the cerebellum (back part of the head). It was impossible to get any information. Later Mr. Melkhiker said, "There is a prohibition installed in her brain, that's why she felt the pain and couldn't remember anything."
Late at night they have seen a UFO hovering over her home. It was a reddish cone shaped UFO, sharp at the top, and a ball that was rotating around the lower part of the object. It was hovering for some seconds and then flew away.
DESCRIPTION OF THE LOCALITY
UFOs were seen in the neighborhood of the Kharovsk between Konantsevo and Boiarskoe villages. They had landed in the hollow between the villages. Here, there is a brook, sulphur-hydrogen springs and high tension wires in the hollow. Inhabitants of this locality use this area for making hay. There is a ground road and some pathways for walking. UFOs visit this place very often. On the landing sight there was no visible traces of physical or thermal influences.
Vegetation: Trees and bushes.
Footnote: The evolution of each object was watched by the witnesses in those very moments of the movement of the alien from the already landed spaceship. In other words, the second object was landing while the alien from the first one was moving, and so on for the third and fourth.
