Former Russian Governor and President of World Chess Federation Says He Was Abducted By Aliens

Former Russian Governor and President of World Chess Federation Says He Was Abducted By Aliens

MOSCOW (AP) — An eccentric Russian politician who is the president of the World Chess Federation and claims to have visited an alien spaceship is thinking about running for FIFA president.

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov said he was considering a bid to replace Sepp Blatter after Russian Chess Federation president Andrei Filatov encouraged him to go for the job.

Here is his story in his own words

The amazing thing about this story is that people at the time were not necessarily in a state of panic that aliens had taken/visited Mr. Ilyumzhinov but that he may have revealed state or military secrets. It really goes to show you how different cultures view the same subject.

ABC's Alexander Marquardt reports from Moscow:

The aliens came for him on September 18, 1997. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov was at home in his Moscow apartment when they came in and abducted him, taking him to their space ship where they communicated with him telepathically.

That’s the tale Ilyumzhinov told a popular Russian television host in a program that aired last week. But Ilyumzhinov isn’t simply one of the thousands who claim to have been abducted by aliens, he’s also the governor of the Russian republic of Kalmykia and the president of the World Chess Federation. Now a Russian parliamentarian wants Ilyumzhinov questioned, fearing he may have given the aliens “secret information,” according to the Echo of Moscow radio station. And not just interrogated by anybody, but by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

State Duma deputy Andrei Lebedev made the request to the president by letter, news website reports. Lebedev doesn’t believe Ilyumzhinov’s claim that he was simply shown around the ship and released, so he has asked the president to find out what else happened and report back to the Duma. Lebedev is especially interested in what Ilyumzhinov may have told the aliens about his job and whether the abduction has affected the governor’s ability to perform the duties of office. 

Ilyumzhinov said the aliens didn’t make themselves known to the rest of the world because they weren’t ready, adding that he communicated with them telepathically because there wasn’t enough oxygen. “I believe I talked to them and saw them. I perhaps wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t for 3 witnesses – my driver, my minister and my assistant,” who were apparently in the apartment at the time, Ilyumzhinov said.
