A team of investigators in Russia found more than a dozen stone discs in the Volgograd region of Russia. At the time of the discovery back in 2015, the team claimed that the discs contain tungsten, a high density metal that has applications in military technology. While the nature of the discs remain a mystery, UFOlogists alluded to the disks being debris from an ancient spaceship.

UFO Hunters Discover Mysterious Discs in Russia
Russian news site Bloknot Volgograd reports that the finding was made by the Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group Kosmopoisk, known since 2004 as the All-Russian Scientific Organization, led by Vadim Chernobrov, during excavations in the Zhirnovsky district of the Volgograd region. The UFO hunters were investigating in the region due its fame for the occurrence of mystical phenomena.
While the team had previously discovered more than a dozen disc-shaped stones, they recently found a particularly large one. “We already found a dozen of these discs of not more than one meter (3.28 ft) in diameter and in Kuzbass a disc of about two meters (6.56 ft) in diameter,” Chernobrov told Bloknot Volgograd , adding that the newest one is unique because it is larger than all the others.

Spaceship Damaged in an Attack on Mars? Really?
“The shape… which resembles the popular image of a flying saucer , has let the imagination of the conspiracy theorists fly,” reports International Business Times . “Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily thinks this is proof that aliens exist and claims the disc is made of tungsten. Tungsten is also known as wolfram, and is used in special military technology.”
The UFO investigation team has made lavish claims about the stone discs, stating that they could be about a million years old. When discussing the find, Waring of UFO Sightings Daily explained: “It looks to me like the stone discs I’ve seen in Mars NASA photos, which leads me to conclude that this UFO is a military drone, but it was probably damaged during the Mars attack and got off course, crashing on Earth.” Evidence of military drones damaged in an attack on Mars. You don’t say!

Rational Explanations for the Mysterious Disks in Russia
Earlier this year, another disc-shaped stone object was discovered in Russia by a coal mining company, this time in Siberia’s Kuznetsk Basin. The strange relic was found 40 meters (131 ft) underground, which suggests it is quite old. Archaeologists who examined the stone disc, which is perfectly circular with a diameter of 1.2 meters (3.93 ft), stated that it was man-made.
Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky Museum are taking a more rational approach and are studying the largest of the mysterious stone discs to determine its age and material. Some UFO skeptics even believe that the discs were not man-made, but that their shape is simply the result of erosion. The large stone disc was put on display at the Zhirnovsky Museum of Local Lore in order to undergo further testing, reported Bloknot Volgograd in 2015.
