A In 2010, Russian Member of Parliment (MP) Andre Lebedev asked then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to investigate claims by regional president Ilyumzhinov that he has met aliens on board a spaceship. Lebedev also asked whether Mr Ilyumzhinov was fit to govern according to a BBC report at the time.
Lebedev was also concerned that, if Ilyumzhinov was abducted, he may have revealed details about his job and state secrets. Ilyumzhinov has claimed on many occasions that in 1997 he was taken by aliens to a spaceship, where he chatted with them before returning to Earth.
The MP wrote a letter to Mr Medvedev raising a list of his concerns in 2010.
In his letter he said that – assuming the whole thing was not just a bad joke – it was an historic event and should have been reported to the Kremlin.
He also asked if there are official guidelines for what government officials should do if contacted by aliens, especially if those officials have access to state secrets.

Mr Ilyumzhinov said in an interview on primetime television that he had been taken on board an alien spaceship which had come to planet Earth to take samples – and claims to have several witnesses.
He was president of Kalmykia, a small Buddhist region of Russia which lies on the shores of the Caspian Sea, for 17 years.
The millionaire former businessman has a reputation as an eccentric character.
As president of the World Chess Federation, he has spent tens of millions of dollars turning the impoverished republic into a mecca for chess players – building an entire village to host international tournaments.
According to an article in The Independent in 2010, Ilyumzhinov said that chess is a “cosmic game” He added that “Excavations have shown that chess was played with similar rules, in various continents, centuries ago, There was no internet before, so how did it get across the world? It means that it was brought from somewhere.”
He also insists, according to The Independent that there is “some kind of code” in chess, evidence for which he finds in the fact that there are 64 squares on the chessboard and 64 codons in human DNA. He then explains why he believes sweetcorn was brought to Earth by a different civilisation. “I’m not ill. I’m psychologically normal,” he says. “I didn’t hide it [the contact with aliens] even though I knew that people would laugh at me and say I was crazy. Maybe it was a form of self-sacrifice.”
According to reporting by the Sydney Morning Herald, Ilyumzhinov said he saw a “semi-transparent half tube” spaceship on his balcony. He then entered it and met “human-like creatures in yellow spacesuits”, The Moscow Times reported.
“I am often asked which language I used to talk to them. Perhaps it was on a level of the exchange of the ideas,” he told a television program host.
He had told The Guardian the aliens took him to “some kind of star”.
“They put a spacesuit on me, told me many things and showed me around. They wanted to demonstrate that UFOs do exist.”
According to OpenMinds, Ilyumzhinov, in an interview with the popular Russian TV host Vladimir Pozner in April 2010, revealed that aliens appeared in a transparent tube on the balcony of an apartment he owns in Moscow on September 17, 1997. “I was reading my book, watching television and had almost fallen asleep,” said Ilyumzhinov. “Then I felt that someone was calling. I would not have believed it, if I had not had three witnesses—my driver, my minister and my aide.”
