Moscow - (X-Files Mess): Kremlin officials are gobsmacked after an 18th century brick-built two storey church 'suddenly vanished' from Bloodyvostock's Ivanovo-Voskresenskaya diocese before materialising thousands of miles away in the USA near the notorious Area 51 alien base in Roswell, Nevada.
Initially Russian police thought that the Church of the Holy Resurrection Shuffle had been stolen 'brick by prick' by local thieves involved in the construction black market.
But Russian Orthodox Church officials have long suspected an alien force may be at work manipulating the time/space continuum "just for the sheer hell of it".
"Holy shit," the diocese's Fr Vitaly Smirnoff commented today amid reports that the CIA had hired fabled (sic) alien hunter Derrel Sims to open an X-File on the case.
Meanwhile extradited British Ufologist and Pentagon computer hacker Gary McKinnon's lawyers said today their client feels vindicated:
"Gary always had a hunch that the US military has some sort of retro-engineered UFO tractor beam technology capable of this sort of activity."
