GENUINE UFO LANDINGStudents Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, have admitted their 'find' of an alien in the Siberian woods was just a stunt
FAKE ALIEN REMAINS
two students who claimed to have recovered the body from a UFO crash site admitted that the creature was in fact made out of BREAD.
Friends Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, shot the video that showed the alien's mangled remains frozen in snow in Irkutsk, Siberia.
The pair were questioned by police over their 'extraterrestrial discovery' but admitted to their stunt.

Prosecutors are now considering whether or not the pair have committed any crimes.
