Encounters of Russian cosmonauts with UFOs. Close encounter of Viktor Afanasyev

Viktor Afanasyev told about his encounter with UFOs, it happened shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when Afanasyev was able to tell his story. In April 1979, he ascended into space to dock with the Soviet space station Salyut-6. But something strange happened during the flight. He saw an unidentified object that turned towards his ship and began to follow him through space.

It followed us for half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we switched to the shadow side, it completely disappeared. It was an engineering structure made of some kind of metal, about 40 meters long with internal housings. The object was narrow in one place and wider in another, and it had small portholes. In some places there were protrusions that looked like small wings. The object was very close to us. We took a picture of him, and our pictures showed that he was at a distance of 23 to 28 meters

Viktor Afanasyev said:

In addition, Afanasyev said that they photographed the object and constantly reported to the Mission Control Center about its size, shape and position. When the cosmonaut returned to Earth, he was interrogated and ordered never to tell anyone about it. His photos were confiscated. These photos and his voice transmissions from space have never been published.
