According to a report made by Vasily Golubev, the governor of Rostov Oblast, a suspected UFO was shot down over Russia’s Rostov Oblast by Russian air defence systems.
Local media sources and Telegram groups shared videos of a small object in the sky exploding on Tuesday, according to reports that Russian air defense systems shot down a UFO in the Rostov Oblast close to the Ukrainian border.
Vasily Golubev, the governor of Rostov Oblast, first announced the news on Telegram, claiming that it had been seen over the village of Sultan Sala.

“I urge everyone to remain calm. To ensure security, all forces and means are involved. The sky is covered with anti-aircraft defenses,” Golubev said, according to local news outlet Privet Rostov, though he didn’t explain what the UFO was, other than that it was shaped like a ball.
What was the UFO in Russia?
Though the identity of the UFO is unknown, it doesn’t appear likely that it was a probe of some sort by highly developed alien species. In fact, a Russian politician asserted that Ukraine had sent a drone.

According to local daily Rostov Gazeta, Russian State Duma lawmaker Anatoly Wasserman said on Telegram that Ukrainian forces, which he referred to as “Kyiv terrorists,” are choosing to shoot indiscriminately at Russian citizens in order to spread panic.
The Sea of Azov, a crucial strategic waterway in the Russia-Ukraine War, runs along the coast of the Rostov Oblast.
Although it does not in fact control the entirety of the Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Luhansk oblasts, Russia has already asserted full sovereignty over all of Ukraine’s Sea of Azov-adjacent territory.
However, despite this conflict and the statements of the authorities, many Rostov Oblast residents weren’t quite satisfied with this explanation.
The Moon being shot down, a balloon carrying Winnie the Pooh being shot down by Piglet’s gun, a weather balloon, and Santa Claus was on his way back to the North Pole, according to different claims made by locals, as reported by the Rostov Gazeta.
The truth is out there: Prior alleged alien activity in Rostov, Russia
This is not the first time Rostov Oblast in Russia has allegedly seen paranormal activity.
After a major storm in 2007, some fisherman along the Sea of Azov were able to catch a bizarre, seemingly unexplained 100 kg life form. With a mobile camera, they had captured this weird, squeaking creature, which they had taken to be some sort of alien.
According to a story in Komsomolskaya Pravda, the Russian fishermen opted to eat this alleged alien before anyone could confirm these claims, with one of them claiming it was the finest cuisine he had ever had.
Naturally, there is a high probability that this was not an alien, and many people think the creature was either a sturgeon or a guitarfish.
