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."
