Did Space Monsters Abduct This Chess-Obsessed President of a Small Ex-Soviet Republic?
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov is a multi-millionaire businessman, conservationist, head of the World Chess Federation, and current president of the Tibetan-style Buddhist/Russian Republic of Kalmykia on the northwest shore of the Caspian Sea. He also claims that he was abducted by space aliens. Naturally, a Russian MP wants Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to personally interrogate Ilyumzhinov about the alleged 1997 UFO abduction, because what if the space monsters got some kind of KGB secrets?
The aliens came for him on September 18, 1997. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov was at home in his Moscow apartment when they came in and abducted him, taking him to their space ship where they communicated with him telepathically.
Okay! Here is a video about this small republic. You might learn something! (Not about aliens.)
