Narratives:

[Ref. pf1:] "THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION":

1978 - Soviet Union

After a collision with a Soviet fighter plane, a disc-shaped object fell into the ocean off Finland, where it was recovered - with humanoid bodies - by a Soviet salvage team.

[Ref. jr1:] JOE RITT:

1978 - Soviet Union

After a collision with a Soviet fighter plane, a disc-shaped object fell into the ocean off Finland, where it was recovered - with humanoid bodies - by a Soviet salvage team.

[Ref. ue1:] "UFO EVIDENCE" WEBSITE:

1978 - Soviet Union

After a collision with a Soviet fighter plane, a disc-shaped object fell into the ocean off Finland, where it was recovered - with humanoid bodies - by a Soviet salvage team.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in the ocean off Finland, in 1978, at an unknown time, after a collision with a Soviet fighter plane, a disc shaped object fell into the ocean off Finland where it was recovered---with humanoid bodies-by a Soviet salvage team. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Les Ovnis."

Albert Rosales comments that more information is definitely needed on this case, possibly bogus per UFO researcher Anton Anfalov.

Points to consider:

In my list of alleged UFO crashes, I noted that in 1978, after a collision with a Soviet combat plane, an object in the shape of disc fell into the ocean off Finland, where it was recovered, as well as bodies of humano´des - by a Soviet team of recovery.

This is the story that circulates on the web, and the source "Les Ovnis", given without any precision or link by Albert Rosales, was my list.

I had the opportunity to exchange about some of these alleged UFO crashes related to the USSR with Anton Anfalov, a Ukrainian ufologist, and we agreed that in the majority of the cases, information is insufficient, the sources are missing or untraceable, and we know that "UFO" magazines in Russia are full with such unverifiable stories that can be completely invented.
