Have just read the following blog posting by Javier Ortega with great interest. Basically a carved statue of a ‘grey’ alien was recently erected in Molebka, Perm, Russia, a place believed to be an ‘anomalous zone’. This location is apparently linked to more than just UFOs but also crop circles and strange balls of lights.

Russia’s first monument to extra-terrestrial aliens opened in Perm region.

PERM, August 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s first ever monument to Unidentified Flying Object, or UFO, has been unveiled in the Perm territory in East European Russia.
A statue depicting an alien was set up in the village of Molebka located in the vicinity of the notorious Perm anomalous zone, a place well-known to ufologists: puzzling UFOs are quite often observed there.
The wooden alien 1.8 meter tall is bending on one knee as though trying to see his lot on the foreign land. The expression on the face featuring prolate eyes is rather said – the creature might have dropped behind his fellow traveler to get stuck on an alien planet.
The author is a local woodcarver, Viktor Sazanov.
“This is the first monument to aliens in Russia,” Russian ufologist, head of the Russian ufology station, Nikolai Subbotin, told Itar-Tass. Actually, it is a personification of the brand of the Molebka anomalous zone.” According to Subbotin, next on the agenda is a UFO museum and an association of anomalous sister zones. For these ends, he said, he planned to contact ufologists in U.S.’ Roswell, New Mexico, where an alleged extra-terrestrial spacecraft crashed in 1947.
Notably, road traffic signs featuring a flying saucer have been installed along roads around the Molebka village.
The Perm Anomalous Zone (M-zone, M-s triangle) was discovered in 1989. It is situated in Russia, Ural region, near village Molebka, approximately 280 km from Yekaterinburg, at space of 70 square kilometers. It is famous for constant UFO-cases of various kinds and contacts with representatives of other civilizations. This place is said to be landing-spot of space ships, coming from other Galaxies. Nearly everyone who visited this place experienced something unknown, enigmatic, some presence of miracle forces. The place is said to be highly energetic, and only positive influence on the human health has been noticed. More to this, there were cases of full recovery of the sick people without any medical treatment, traditional or not. People often see “energy balls” and “coloured lightnings,” and fuzzy human-like figures here. Ufologists say there are places within the zone where there is no magnetic field.”
RT News had this to say about it on 2 August 2011;
Russia’s first ever statue of an alien has been unveiled near the city of Perm, in the Urals. It marks the site of the most frequent UFO sightings in Russia.
The wooden statue, almost two meters tall, was erected at the entrance to the village of Molebka. This place was not chosen accidentally as it is considered one of the most popular UFO hotspots in Russia, Itar-Tass reports. Many believe that UFOs land there more often than in other places. The so-called Molebsky triangle was discovered in the 1980s.
“This is Russia’s first monument to a UFO,” the news agency quoted Nikolay Subbotin, the head of the Russian UFO Research Station (RUFORS), as saying. The monument with characteristic alien eyes was done by a local skilled craftsman, carver Viktor Sazanov, and cost local authorities 45,000 rubles (about US$1,600).
Subbotin said that now local ufologists are thinking of opening a UFO museum in Molebka with an observatory shaped like a flying saucer. They want to send the proposal to colleagues in the US city of Roswell, the most famous zone among ufologists.
The “first contact” has already been established, as guests from Roswell attended the festival of creativity and design called “Fact and Fiction of the Molebsky Triangle.”
For me, this statue symbolises more than just the reported activity on an interesting stretch of land. The statue serves as a marker for tourists, let’s face it it’s a great alternative to the blue plaques we find in the UK.
But statues themselves historically serve a variety of functions; in the West, statues portray those people whose lives and achievements we celebrate or remember; they can also serve as beacons in commemorating tragic events in history.
In many other cultures, statues act as boundary markers and even serve as protective devices. There are religious idols that become a focus for worship. Statues also mark graves. Carvings also tend to incorporate the cultural identity of the people who made them. So what does this Russian statue represent?
My immediate impression is that this isn’t just a marker for the tourist industry but rather it’s a symbol of a new religion in the Western world, something that was developed in the mid-20th century; a belief in the ET – a supernatural intelligence believed to make contact with large numbers of people all over the world. It is believed to bring hope and has the ability to free us from the dark world we live in.
Step aside God! Move away angels! And step on those fairies of old! ET has become our new Lord and Saviour.
