In Ukraine, UFO enthusiasts want to build a memorial to “fallen aliens” who have died during their alleged Earthly encounters, the Russia-based news channel RT tells us.

These “ufologists” are collecting money for their extraterrestrial monument in the historic northern city of Berdichev, the project’s organizer, Aleksandr Nalisman, told a local newspaper. RT recounts that report, writing that aliens “usually became the victims of different catastrophes,” including “a jet fighter [that] collided with a UFO in 1997 in the ancient city of Kherson.”

The source says the UFO’s pieces were taken by Ukrainian soldiers for examination. Later, they succeeded in bringing down six more UFOs. It helped them “begin constructing its analogue.” Whether the scientists have found the remains of the fallen UFO pilots is not known.

Nalisman issued his call for remembrance because “people of Earth have not paid attention to the lives of the aliens.”
