It appears that the Mothman or a similar creature also showed itself in Russia just before the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster. Reports state that a large winged figure with glowing red eyes flew around the plant and was seen in the nearby village of Pripyat in the weeks leading up to the nuclear plant's meltdown.
This is from a Listverse article:
"When Chernobyl’s reactor finally exploded on April 26, the pilots and rescue workers who survived the flames told frightful stories about a huge black figure flying from the destroyed reactor, circling among the black plumes rising from it. The Black Bird had finally claimed its victims, and would never be seen again."
The witnesses reportedly still talk about the creature to this day, but a true investigation never took place. This was due to the Soviet government's paranoia about the public finding out all of the dangerous details about the Chernobyl disaster. Here is an excerpt from The Unexplained.net:
"The creature was said to have no head, but was described with eyes. Large red piercing eyes were reported by frightened witnesses in cases that ranged everywhere from fevered nightmares to accounts of multiple witnesses (now anonymous as they have been lost to history). The creature was said to have incredible massive wings easily large enough to give the massive bird purchase in the air and allow it to soar through the heavens and descend before frightened witnesses. Though surviving testimony of the bird suggests the sightings were nowhere near as extensive as the original Mothman sightings in Point Pleasant, the Mothman's iconic shape and eyes have been connected to the Chernobyl disaster and it was later dubbed "The Black Bird of Chernobyl."
So now the question becomes; was this the same creature as Point Pleasant? Or simply a member of the same species? Many people thought that perhaps the Mothman was an alien being that could sense disaster. Others thought that the Mothman was a fallen Angel trying to atone for it's sins. Perhaps a spirit that tried its best to save hundreds or in this case thousands of people.
