Russia hints at US moon landing investigation

A Russian government official has proposed an international investigation in to the moon landings.
In a recent Izvestia newspaper column article Russia's Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin used the recent FIFA corruption probe as a basis on which to suggest that US authorities had overstepped their boundaries and that international investigators could just as easily look in to some of the more questionable aspects of the Apollo moon landings.

In particular he raised concerns over what had happened to the original footage taken in 1969 and the 400 kilograms of lunar rock collected during various visits to the moon between 1969 and 1972.
"We are not contending that they did not fly [to the moon], and simply made a film about it," he wrote. "But all of these scientific - or perhaps cultural - artifacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss. An investigation will reveal what happened."

While NASA is believed to have wiped out a lot of the original moon landing videos many of them have since been recovered thanks to recordings of the original television broadcasts.

Most of the rock samples retrieved from the moon are now thought to be either in the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Texas or in various museums and universities across the globe.

If the Russians doubt the landings, just send up an appropriate asset to lunar orbit and get pictures of the landing sites...the Japanese could pull it off (and imaged the hardware), so why not mighty Russia?? Put your mighty technology where your mouth is, eh? eta...there aren't any looming wheat shortages over there, are there?? Russian already confirmed the landings once (as the Soviet Union). As you alluded to, Putin is just stirring up ***** as usual (or did, earlier this summer), to deflect attention away from his own problems. Whether or not people actually want to believe it, the point... [More]

BTW, Daz, if you do pop back, can you clarify your current position? Do you accept the Apollo landings happened as history suggests? If not, what, to you, is the absolute pinnacle of evidence that is suggesting otherwise?

From the conspiracist's dictionary: "just ask questions" = I'm not interested in any answers expecially if they would show my question to be pointless and wrong "common sense" = "this would be one of the dumbest way to achieve X"

Sadly, I have to go and get our supper ready now, but, hey, guys, this has been one of the most entertaining threads I have taken the time to read in its entirety. BTY I am a Luna landing believer, watched it at the time on TV. Have no reason whatsoever to doubt it.

Here's my take for whatever it is worth... When MH17 was blown out of the Ukraine skies, the US *quickly* blamed ethnic Russian insurgents in Ukraine firing a missile supplied by Putin - all while the bodies were still warm - a very bad thing to do - even if the US was right. use TACT, for god's sake. Anyway, since then, Putin's government then released the bombshell that 911 was an inside job controlled by Washington. It's called - "tit for tat". "Your Intel lies about us, we'll lie about you". I really think this moon landing drivel is yet another episode of Putin leashing out at America for... [More]

If not, what, to you, is the absolute pinnacle of evidence that is suggesting otherwise? Ive always been a complete believer in the Apollo program including the Moon landings ..at one point (perhaps this thread) I was only being completely honest with my disturbance regarding a comment Gene Cernan made (in the NASA Apollo 17 video) ..and yet I have had my disturbance appeased, and that has been due thanks to your & other members here, who were able to answer ...
