Lipkovatovka, Kharkiv, Ukraine, someone:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In Lipkovatovka, Kharkiv area, Ukraine, on summer 1987, a witness about whom no detail is given but who was probably a kid was in a sound sleep in his bed at 10 p.m. when he suddenly woke up, having the feeling of a presence in the bedroom.

He opened his eyes and saw to his right and close to him, a woman that was sitting down. The room was also brightly lit by a streetlight from outside and he was able to see very clearly.

The witness attempted to move but was completely paralyzed and he was also unable, for some reason, to look directly at the woman.

The woman seemed to be under 30 years old and had long black wavy hair. She had large shiny eyes and wore a dark robe.

She then approached the bed and put her hand on the witness stomach. He tried to shout but was unable to, then he attempted to strike at the woman but it was useless.

As the woman began to move her hand lower, the witness was finally able to scream at the top of his lungs.

His mother then ran towards his room and "as she opened the door the woman had vanished in plain sight."

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Lipkovatovka, Kharkov, Russia, on summer 1987, at 10:00 p.m., the witness had been in a sound sleep when he suddenly woke up, having the feeling of a presence in the bedroom.

He opened his eyes and saw to his right and close to him a woman that was sitting down. The room was also brightly lit by a streetlight from outside and he was able to see very clearly.

The witness attempted to move but was completely paralyzed and he was also unable, for some reason, to look directly at the woman.

The woman seemed to be under 30 years old and had long black wavy hair. She had large shiny eyes and wore a dark robe.

She then approached the bed and put her hand on the witness stomach. He tried to shout but was unable to, then he attempted to strike at the woman but it was useless.

As the woman began to move her hand lower, the witness was finally able to scream at the top of his lungs.

His mother then ran towards his room and as she opened the door the woman had vanished in plain sight.

Rosales indicates that the source is Vladimir V. Rubtsov PhD, Mufon Symposium Proceedings 1994.

Points to consider:

The case is so very obviously an hypnagogic hallucination episode, commenly refered to as "sleep paralysis" and also as the "Old Hag" syndrome that I probably do not need to comment further.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
