John Greenewald's "Black Vault" site reports that the Russian navy has declassified its records of encounters UFOs. These are thousands of records, dating back to the Soviet era, and reveal that unknowns were mostly reported by submarines and military ships, rather than by aircraft, because they were seen entering and leaving the water.
Former navy officer and well-known Russian UFO researcher Vladimir Azhazha says, "50% of UFO encounters are connected with oceans and 15% more with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water." This coincides both with events observed during the 1969 Shag Harbor UFO Incident in Canada, which involved an object entering the waters of the harbor before numerous witnesses on the shore. Despite an extensive search the Royal Canadian Mounted Police never found the object, according to their records
On one occasion, the Russian documents report, a nuclear submarine, which was on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean, detected six unknown objects. After the crew failed to leave behind their pursuers by maneuvering, the captain ordered to surface. The objects followed suit, took to the air, and flew away."
Retired submarine commander Rear Admiral Yury Beketov says, "Many mysterious events happened in the region of Bermuda Triangle (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show). Instruments malfunctioned with no apparent reason or detected strong interference" He thinks this could be deliberate disruption by UFOs. What don't they want us to see?
Navy intelligence veteran, Captain 1st rank Igor Barklay comments:
“Ocean UFOs often show up wherever our or NATO’s fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea.”

Another place where people often report UFO encounters is Russia’s Lake Baikal, the deepest fresh water body in the world. Fishermen tell of powerful lights coming from the deep and objects flying up from the water.
In one case in 1982 a group of military divers training at Baikal spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits. The encounter happened at a depth of 50 meters, and the divers tried to catch the strangers. Three of the seven men died, while four others were severely injured.
