http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/05/06/russian-governor-abducted-aliens/?test=latestnews The governor of a Russian republic and former president of the World Chess Federation told a TV station that he had been abducted by aliens, who communicated with him telepathically. The Russian government apparently believes him. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the governor of Kalmykia, told a popular Russian television host that the aliens came for him in his apartment on September 18, 1997. According to a report on ABC News, Ilyumzhinov said that the aliens didnâ€™t make themselves known to the rest of the world because they werenâ€™t ready, adding that he communicated with them telepathically because there wasnâ€™t enough oxygen. â€œI believe I talked to them and saw them. I perhaps wouldnâ€™t believe it if it wasnâ€™t for 3 witnesses -- my driver, my minister and my assistant,â€ who were apparently in the apartment at the time, he reportedly said. According to a report on Russian news website GZT.ru, State Duma deputy Andrei Lebedev doesnâ€™t believe that the governor was simply shown around the alien spaceship and released. Lebedev wants to find out what else happened to the president -- and he wants Russian president Dmitry Medvedev to interrogate the abductee. Russian officials fear Ilyumzhinov may have given the aliens â€œsecret information,â€ according to the Echo of Moscow radio station.
