Russian researchers claim to have found two mysterious “alien skulls” and a briefcase embossed with Nazi emblems in the woods of a remote Russian mountain range in the Caucasus. The skulls, according to researchers, appear to have belonged to a bipedal species unknown to science.

The discovery, according to the Russian Komsomolskaya Pravda, raises the possibility that Hitler and the Nazis were actively involved in a search for advanced alien technology during the Second World War.

According to a Russian ethnographer and cryptozoology researcher, Vladimir Melikov, who had previously discovered remains of an unknown race about three meters tall in the Borjomi Gorge — a canyon of the Mtkvari River of central Georgia — a group of explorers led him two years ago to the discovery of two strange skulls with horns in a cave near Mount Bolshoi (“Big”) Thach (Tjach) in the Adygea region of Russia.

When Melikov first saw the skulls, he thought they were fossilized animal skulls, but when he began examining them he was shocked at what he found.

“Note the round hole at the bottom of the head,” said Melikov, displaying one of the skulls to a reporter. “It is the base of the spine. The position indicates that this creature moved on two legs. Another strange thing is the absence of cranial vault and jaws. A mouth, several holes distributed in a circle. The eye sockets are unusually large, and they two separate growths shaped horns. However, the facial bones are flat, as in hominids.”

He concluded that the skulls likely belonged to an alien species that visited Earth in the past.

Two years after the discovery, a hermit who lived in the woods brought to Melikov a briefcase embossed with Nazi emblems and a detailed map of the Adygea region made in 1941. The hermit said he found the briefcase in a secluded hideout in the woods at a spot close to where the skulls were found two years before.

“A local man brought me a large brown suitcase with leather handle and the emblem of the secret society Ahnenerbe in the top,” Melikov said.

Ahnenerbe, a secret Nazi organization, known formally as “The Ancestral Heritage Research and Teaching Society” (“Ahnenerbe Forschungs-und Lehrgemeinschaft”), was founded on July 1, 1935 by Heinrich Himmler and Dutch Atlantean mythology enthusiast Herman Wirth, to conduct research into the archaeological and cultural history of the Aryan race, with the primary aim of proving that the Nordics had once ruled the world.

The group soon became deeply involved in UFO, occult, and paranormal research, due to Himmler’s obsessed interest in such matters.

Melikov said the briefcase and its contents — including the full-color map of the Adygea region — were found in very good condition and the inscription “Ahnenerbe” was legible and unmistakable (see video).“The lid of the case, clearly showing the official emblem of the Ahnenerbe, consisting of Runes [Nazi symbol].”

The hermit also found a ring lying near the briefcase, which Melikov thought belonged to the Nazi soldier who carried the briefcase.

After examining the contents of the briefcase, Melikov became convinced they were linked to the previous discovery of alien skulls in the region and that the SS Ahnenerbe had apparently launched an expedition in the Adygea region to find the skulls.

 Melikov had no idea how the Nazis knew that alien skulls were to be found in the region. But he knew that the Nazis had sought ancient alien artifacts and manuscripts with the hope of obtaining access to advanced alien technology that could help the war effort.

Although Melikov believed the skulls belonged to ancient alien visitors to Earth, some researchers believe the skulls could be demonic.

Regardless, Melikov said the skulls were “unlike anything known to man.”

“Among the most mysterious features of the skulls is the absence of cranial vault and jaws,” he said. “The eye sockets were unusually large having facial features resembling humans.”

“Even when compared with the skull of a bear, it is hard to think that you do not have in your hands the remains of an alien creature,” he added.

However, skeptics have dismissed the claims, saying they are part of an elaborate hoax. Hoax debunkers argued that the facial features of the skulls could have been assembled from parts of a large animal’s pelvic bone.

Melikov sent photographs of the skulls to paleontologists in Moscow. But it appeared they thought it was a hoax because they showed little interest. They only acknowledged they had never seen anything like the skulls before.

But a few academics suggested they were sheep skull deformed by pressure over a long period of time.

The latest mysterious discoveries in Russia come after researchers uncovered evidence of the presence of Ahnenerbe operatives with elite German mountain troops known for their “Edelweisss” insignia, at the peak of Europe’s highest mountain, Elbrus, in the Republic of Kabardino-Balkar and Karachay–Cherkessia, in the northern Russian Caucasus mountains.

Researchers discovered on Mount Elbrus another Nazi briefcase embossed with the emblems of Ahnenerbe, a ring and a set of Nazi uniforms. Remains of German huntsmen (“jager”) were also found. It is believed that the soldiers were killed in an avalanche during the war.

During the war, the Nazis deployed troops equipped with sophisticated surveillance equipment to the Adygea region.

According to Ivan Bormotov, professor of economics at the Maikop State Technological University, SS Ahnenerbe secretly equipped expeditions to the mountains of Adygea in August 1944. But it is not certain whether the Nazis knew exactly what they were looking for or what they expected to gain from the expeditions.

But it believed that at a time that Hitler’s Germany was actively engaged in developing new types of weapons capable of changing the course of the war, Ahnenerbe was investigating UFOs, seeking contact with aliens to obtain advanced technology.

 Paranormal researchers speculate that the Nazis may have searched for the alien skulls and associated artifacts in the hope of obtaining secret advanced alien technology.

But according to Bormotov, “We can build all kinds of versions and conjectures, but the remains found in the mountains of Adygea will force you to think.”

However, it is believed that Ahnenerbe was involved in many secret expeditions. The group reportedly investigated the mysteries of the dolmens of the Caucasus and sent expeditions to Tibet and the Antarctica in search of alien technology.

Some years before the war began in 1936, they were involved in a road and tunnel building project from the Black Sea coast to Lake Ritsa in the Caucasus region of north-west Georgia, as part of developmental projects following establishment of the Ritsa Nature Reserve tourist site in 1930.

The purpose was to access water from a source in a cave under the Lake Ritsa.

The Germans became involved in the project ostensibly to foster closer ties with Russia, but in reality, Ahnenerbe experts were interested in the water source because they believed it had a special composition that makes it ideal for making synthetic blood plasma.

The German specialist engineers who helped to construct the road and tunnel died under suspicious circumstances when the car in which they were travelling plunged down a ravine

According to Bormotov, “The ‘living water’ from Abkhazia was transported in silver containers, first to the coast, then by submarine to the bottom of Constance, and finally by plane to Germany.”

Further plans to make Ritsa accessible to German submarines were interrupted by the war.
