The U-shaped object, resembling a silvery dome, is currently under inspection by Russian experts, after being covertly removed under cover of night from the possession of villagers who found it.
After discovering the device on Sunday, locals from the village of Otradnesnky had managed to drag the “UFO fragment” from the thick forest where it had fallen. They attached it onto a trailer and took it through the snow to their village, where local inspectors then examined it before alerting Moscow authorities.
The device has not had its provenance confirmed as of yet. However, the object does not come from a rocket or missile or be in any way associated with terrestrial space technology, it has been announced.
“The object found is not related to space technology. A final conclusion can be made after a detailed study of the object by experts,” said Roscosmos, the Russian space agency.

Really? Because it totally looks like it came from space. There is a video included in the link above (can’t embed) that shows it falling from the sky. It looks light weight as people tip it when they touch it.
Why do all these weird things happen in Siberia? And why do their news outlets say such odd things?
Perhaps nothing is being said because it was a local rocket launch failure. Just speculating. But that’s more plausible than concluding it’s not associated with space technology!
