Qostanay region

Sheltering a crashed alien, shepherd Sagynbai may have saved the Soviet base with nuclear weapons from the invasion of UFOs.

This story took place in June 1979 in the Turgay region of the Kazakh SSR near Arkalyk - now almost abandoned, but then - a thriving industrial city.

A local shepherd named Sagynbai woke up in the middle of the night, came out of the house and saw that the sky was glowing. It seemed to him that the light source was not far away, and the shepherd, saddling his horse, decided to go and find out what was the reason for the strange glow.

Night guest

After driving a few kilometers from his native village, he saw traces of a large object falling in the sky glowing in the night steppe. Deciding that it could be an airplane or a Soviet space satellite, the shepherd drove closer and was surprised to see a silver disk half buried in the rocky soil.

Deciding that it was not worth approaching such a find, Sagynbai returned to the village. And a few hundred meters from the fallen object, he came across an escape capsule, very similar to a coal-black egg.

The surface of the capsule was of such a texture that the shepherd decided that it was just a smoothly processed boulder. But at that moment, the "boulder" suddenly opened, and a tall man, as it seemed at first to Sagynbai, fell out of it, under the horse's feet.

The shepherd's horse snorted and backed away, and the shepherd decided to drive away from the stranger to a safe distance - to observe what would happen next.

He understood that it would have been better for him to leave altogether, but curiosity prevented him. However, the occupant of the aircraft himself got to his feet and immediately went to the shepherd.

The stranger was tall, with thin arms and legs. Huge eyes glittered in the dark. The Kazakh greeted the stranger with an open palm, and then gave him his horse and on foot, leading her by the bridle, returned home.

To say that his wife was surprised is to say nothing. At another time, she would have simply run away from home, but this time she was under hypnosis and obeyed her husband in everything. And he ordered to cook beshbarmak in the middle of the night and set the table. The shepherd put his nocturnal guest in the most honorable place.

The woman cooked the dish, trying once again not to look at the guest and not to show increased interest. But the stranger did not eat meat, but tried the dough with an appetite and ate the whole kurt - a national Kazakh dish, dry balls that are made from sheep, goat or camel cottage cheese.

With gestures, he refused the bed prepared for him by the astonished woman, and stayed at the table for the night, closing his eyes. Whether he slept, the owners did not understand.

In the morning, the shepherd woke up from the fact that a military UAZ drove into his yard. Immediately realizing that the Soviet military was most likely looking for his overnight guest, the shepherd grabbed the newcomer by the hand and took him to the hayloft, where he indicated with signs that he needed to hide.

While the newcomer was sitting on the fragrant hay, the shepherd came out to meet the military.

When they asked him if he had seen anything unusual during the night, the shepherd shrugged his shoulders and replied that he had slept soundly.

The military, after wandering around the village a little more, left.

The stranger stayed with the shepherd for two weeks. During this time, he managed to get acquainted with the villagers, learned to play cards and checkers, and soon began to beat the Kazakhs. It is noteworthy that for all the time he did not utter a single word, but at the same time he perfectly understood everything that was said to him, and people, in turn, understood him.

He disappeared from Sagynbai's house on June 26, 1979.

The fact that such a story, in general, happened, was told to journalists by a citizen of Russia Tatyana Leonova. In 1979, she was nine years old, and she lived with her father, a veterinarian, in Arkalyk.

Sometimes the father took the girl with him on calls. Shepherd Sagynbai was an old acquaintance of the veterinarian, and one day he and his daughter came to visit him.

The shepherd welcomed the veterinarian cordially, fed him, gave him tea, and then a quiet noise was heard on the street. The shepherd said something to the veterinarian and, taking him by the elbow, led him out of the house.

Despite her father's order to stay at the table, the girl ran out after him. She saw the men walking towards the cowshed and followed them.

Looking into the cowshed, Tatiana saw a gray creature surrounded by people. The creature had a head twice the size of a human and black eyes half the size of a face.

She learned the whole story from her father when she grew up. She also compared the alien's disappearance toThe Turgai incident, which occurred just on June 26, 1979 - that is, on the day of the alien's disappearance.

The incident became known to the general public only after one of the eyewitnesses, possibly camp workers, wrote about it to the editorial office of one of the Soviet youth magazines.

If we link this case with the incident in Arkalyk, which is located near Derzhavinsk, then we can assume that the "space guys" flew for their brother, and at the same time conducted reconnaissance at a military base.

And who knows what would have happened if they hadn't found him and approached the territory of the military base with missiles.
