Similar to a witch, Baba Yaga is a supernatural being (or one of a trio of sisters of the same name) who appears as a deformed or ferocious-looking old woman. In Russian fairy tales, Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs. Baba Yaga may help or hinder those that encounter or seek her out and may play a maternal role and has associations with forest wildlife. According to Vladimir Propp's folktale morphology, Baba Yaga commonly appears as either a donor, villain, or may be altogether ambiguous.Andrea Johns identifies Baba Yaga as \"one of the most memorable and distinctive figures in eastern European folklore,\" and observes that she is \"enigmatic\" and often exhibits \"striking ambiguity.\" Johns summarizes Baba Yaga as \"a many-faceted figure, in capable of inspiring researchers to see her as a Cloud, Moon, Death, Winter, Snake, Bird, Pelican or Earth Goddess, totemic matriarchal ancestress, female initiator, phallic mother, or archetypal image\".

When a family moved houses, they would specifically invite their domovoy to come with them to ensure it would remain with the household.

Babushka Z first appeared in a strange video recorded in early April by Ukrainian soldiers. The video shows the soldiers approaching a small farm in the Donbas region and an old woman proudly holding the Soviet flag at arm's length.
