Locals say the metallic object fell from sky and based on preliminary research, the Russian experts said that the object does not come from any space rocket or combat missile.
The mysterious object is now under surveillance of Russian police, as interest in this strange space “visitor” has become stronger in recent days.
Weighing about 200 kilograms and having a height of two meters, locals have placed the “UFO” into a trailer and brought it in the village of Otradnensky, Siberia.
“The object found is not related to space technology. A conclusion will be made after the experts will conduct a detailed analysis of the object,” said Russian space agency Roscosmos.

The object composed partly of titanium, crashed near the village Otradnensky some 3,600 kilometers from Moscow.
Russian media announced in recent days that “fragments of a UFO” were found in a Siberian forest.
Locals have heard a strange sound in the wooded area of Siberia, but in December 2011. However the discovery was reported just last Sunday to the local police, who immediately alerted the authorities in Moscow.
Yuri Bornyakov, the director of emergency services from Kuibyshevski, Novosibirsk district, said: “We measured the radiation level nearby and inside the object. We found no radiation”.
Original theory, that the strange object would be a fragment of a space rocket or a satellite carried by it, whose launch in Kazakhstan failed a few months ago, was denied.
