According to Valeri Dvuzhilni, who has investigated the case, Soviet Navy personnel observed a glowing object enter the sea off the coast in the Dal’niy Vostok area in the spring of 1989. A naval officer disclosed to Dvuzhilni that a recovery operation was immediately initiated, and a device, described as egg-shaped and about twenty feet long, was retrieved from the seabed and brought ashore.
“They tried to penetrate the device with an oxyacetylene flame, but without any result," Nicolai told me. "The naval officer informed Valeri that the object was later transferred to Vladivostok and then Moscow. I asked Valeri to try and obtain more information, but he told me that the officer refused to speak anymore, as it was a top-secret matter.”19 I have been informed that the Soviet Navy had specific instructions for reporting anomalous objects. In the case of landing traces, damage to military equipment, and so on, details were immediately to be telegraphed to the following units: Leningrad, military unit 62728; Mytishchi, military unit 67947.
