Thousands of locusts swarming the Russian village Achikulak in Stavropol Krai are destroying crops, according to local reports. The Ministry of Agriculture of Stravropol Territory reported that swarms of migratory locusts in the south of Russia began on July 20 and have since spread to cover an area of about 90,000 hectares, leading officials to declare a state of emergency in three regions.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
