Secret Soviet UFO studies revealed

A former KGB agent has revealed details of Soviet studies and experiments relating to UFOs.

According to retired FSB major general Vasily Yeremenko, it was a spate of sightings over the Soviet Union that sparked an official investigation in to the phenomenon. At the time Yeremenko was in charge of the KGB air force division and was therefore tasked with collecting and archiving all the reports. Such importance was placed on the subject that some military units were even trained how to react in the event of an encounter so as to not evoke an aggressive response.

In the early 1980s the project progressed to the point where an experiment was allegedly conducted in an effort to make a UFO appear on demand. "One could say that, during that experiment, we learned how to summon a UFO, said Yeremenko. "To achieve that, there would be a sharp increase in the number of flights performed by combat aircraft and a lot of movement of hardware. Then UFOs appeared with a probability of nearly 100 percent."

As time went on some of the experiments even attempted to make contact with the objects. "It looked like this: a person on the ground would wave their arms, twice to the right and twice to the left," Yeremenko recalled. "The ball in the sky would react to it by swinging twice to the right and then twice to the left. We had no idea how to explain that."

"The Soviet Union took UFOs seriously. The KGB and the Soviet Defence Ministry had dedicated units collecting and analysing information about paranormal activity."

I tend to think UAP is likely to explain a good swath of actual legitimate UFO sightings. I strongly agree. I do not know anyone who has such a well rounded understanding of UAP as your good self, glad to see you around again, even if sporadic for the meantime.

It certainly is true that these things can be created convincingly with CGI on a typical desktop PC these days but that does not account for the complete lack of virtually any at all. This is one area I have some knowledge about, CGI that is. These are the programs I am familiar with (not an expert by any means thought): Lightwave, Modo 701, Zbrush, Photoshop, Marmoset and several others I cannot recall at the moment. For me it's DAZ Studio (several generations), Poser7 & 9 (as opposed to 7 of 9 *sigh*), LuxRender, Adobe Premier (only because I have it, not because I actually know what I'm... [More]

I have to agree, are we not told "if 1 % of UFO storied are true, then there is something the the alien claims"? I feel the same should apply to photos. If just 1% were to come out clean and legible, the answer is likely to become apparent. But not even 1% come out clear and legible where the more extraordinary claims are concerned, yet we do get good clear pictures of natural phenomena, such as the recent Russian Meteor. The problem is how do we separate the legitimate clear photos from the fakes? I agree that, in light of the Moscow Meteor (I wonder if Moscow likes having a meteor named for ... [More]

It does make sense, but not for 100% of cases I would think. Some people claim long duration sightings, anything over 5 minutes should be possible to capture, and it seems rather suspicious that all footage is grainy. Hey Psyche, no I agree not for 100% of 'claims' as opposed to cases. I say this because we can only really count those that had a genuine experience and are not just mistaking a distant light/or plane etc as a UFO. We then look at how many genuine sightings happened that lasted over 1 minute (lets use 1 minute as a reasaonable amount of time to allow you to capture it)....if we t... [More]

The abduction thing has never been believable to me. For every story there seems to be ample doubt as to its authenticity. Believers always inject unknowable ideas as to why there are holes in the stories instead of looking at known human nature and the imperfections of our brains. The abductees may believe their own stories (i.e. they passed a lie detector test) but that does exclude the possibility of prosaic things like mental illness, whether temporary or not. I did not put this in my original post because so many people get offended when you state that they simply could be koo-koo for coc... [More]

We do get some pictures, though, and they seem to indicate UAP photographed are not solid craft. Do you not find it strange that every single picture is blurry though? The last 5 or 6 years is about right for cell phones, but cameras started to get cheap around the year 2000. What we do know is that natural phenomena such as Min Min or Hessdalen produce captures such as: And the UFO photos of alleged alien spaceships look like: It seems to me that we are getting the photo's, but not the ones people say we should be getting, which when described should look like this: When it comes down to 100%...

The problem is how do we separate the legitimate clear photos from the fakes? I agree that, in light of the Moscow Meteor (I wonder if Moscow likes having a meteor named for it? ), there should be oodles & scads of good verifiable photos. There aren't. Or are there? With the high number of fakes out there, one good honest one may have gotten lost in the shuffle. I reckon we can tell them apart. And in fact, I do not think there are that many fakes left out there that leave people scratching their heads. I really think if one photo did exist that was undeniable that the UFO crowd would tout... [More]

We then look at how many genuine sightings happened that lasted over 1 minute (lets use 1 minute as a reasaonable amount of time to allow you to capture it)....if we then take the time period when phones had cameras and also at a time when most people would carry one.....suddenly we have very few sightings that would meet this criteria. I am therefore not that surprised no great pho... [More]

Hey want to hear something funny? I was about to use similar pictures from Hessdalen to prove my point lol ...so how are we using the same evidence to argue for an oppsite position....wow and wow just goes to show the difference in interpretation I guess. You see I thought the Hessdalen photos show that even with professional equipment being set up to capture these anomolies the best we can get are 'poor' images (in relation to the spaceship image you posted) so how can we expect the average man on the street with a phone to be able to capture a nice clear image? He is working against shock...... [More]

But almost everyone in Russia can capture a meteor? Does that not seem to tip the balance somewhat? It is as short as the above and it was completely unexpected. I think at least a handful should exist that do not look like a blur. No forewarning - not even a hint - yet so many really cool pics. Had to be a conspiracy. Yep, yep, a conspiracy to discredit the blurry UFO pics as being worthless. It's that darned Alien Shadow Government again!
