ST. PETERSBURG –   Gootan spaceships fired at commuters in St. Petersburg yesterday!!

There was   an extraordinary explosion seen by thousands of commuters in St Petersburg, Russia yesterday.

It seemed like the end of the world when motorists driving along this busy motorway saw a huge flash light up the night sky on the horizon.

The flash was  first thought to be the result of an explosion at an electrical power plant in St Petersburg, in what was described as a ‘technical malfunction’ by officials.

But, WWN has learned that explosion was actual a Gootan missile fired from an alien spaceship that had been seen hovering over St. Petersburg for the last few days.

“It definitely came from that alien spaceship.  It was getting lower and lower in the sky and we thought it was going to swoop down on us, but then it went back up and shot a missile at the electrical plant.  We saw it with our own eyes,” said Vasilev Kornosky, who was on his way home from work.

One driver was listening to John Lennon as he was stuck in a traffic jam and caught the event on video.

Authorities in Russia told WWN that it is a signal that the Gootans (who landed on Earth in November, 2011) have begun their attack.   “They no longer will be ‘observing’ humans, they are beginning to attack and, of course, they realize that if they take Russia, the rest of the world will be a piece of cake,” said a military official close to Vladmir Putin.

Putin himself has vowed to kill “every last Gootan I see,” with his bare hands.

Others say that Putin has made contact with the Gootans and is working with them.  “Putin wants to see Russia destroyed.  He has his hands all over this,” said Sasha Mernov from Moscow.

Russians go to the polls to choose a new President on March 4 following widespread complaints of ballot rigging by the party of favorite Putin in the December parliamentary elections.

The electrical power plant has been disabled by The Gootans.  “It was smart move, they have taken out a significant power source in Russia,” a NASA scientist told WWN.  “America is taking steps to protect our power grid.”
