A group of UFO researchers from the northern Ukrainian town of Berdychiv is set to build a monument in the memory of aliens, who died trying to establish contact with humans, a local newspaper said.
The Berdychiv Dilovyi newspaper quoted the group's leader Oleksandr Nalysman as saying that contacts with alien civilizations were an "undisputable fact." Many visitors from space died as their flying saucers crashed while attempting to land on the Earth, he said.
"We do not pay enough attention to the fates of visitors from other planets, who died on the Earth," he was quoted as saying.
The project, however, lacks funding and is yet to receive approval from local authorities, Nalysman said.
One of the most enduring legends in UFO lore is the Roswell Incident that allegedly took place in 1947. Supporters of the theory believe that an alien spacecraft crashed in the remote desert town of Roswell, New Mexico, leading to the discovery of mysterious debris and alien bodies, which were covered up by the U.S. government.
