Russian/Ukranian folklore witch.

Lives in a hut in the middle of the forest. The hut has a distinct personality, and is built on chicken legs, so it can move around, spinning and screeching. It may turn its back on visitors, or even run and jump on them. However, when the secret password is stated, the hut calms itself and squats to allow the visitor to enter.

Baba Yaga is also unique in that she flys around the forest in a giant mortar, steering herself with a large pestle.

Baba Yaga makes appearances as the villain in the once popular "Quest for Glory" games by Sierra.
Is that a UFO?

No, It's Baba Yaga in her mortar.
