An unknown object described by one local news outlet as a “UFO” has been shot down by an anti-aircraft defense system in the southern Russian region of Rostov.
Vasily Golubev, the governor of Rostov oblast, wrote on Telegram that a small-size object in the shape of a ball had been seen flying at an altitude of around one and a half miles on January 3 above the village of Sultan Sala in the region’s Myasnikovsky district. He explained that the object was apparently not something that belonged to the Russian military so the decision was taken to liquidate it, reports Newsweek.
A Russian official suggested that the ball-shaped object could have been a drone but local residents who witnessed the event, speculated that the Unidentified Flying Object was not man-made but of alien origin. So far it remains a mystery what the object could have been.
