Former Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev Reveals: Soviet Union took UFOs seriously
When former presidents such as George Bush Jr., Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were asked by Jimmy Kimmel about the U.S. government’s position on aliens, they typically respond with claims that they don’t know anything, or, in the case of Bush, that they do know something but will not disclose what they know. Former Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, however, gave a more forthright response when asked about the issue: He said that he was indeed presented with classified material on UFOs and that the Soviet government took the issue very seriously.
In fact, he straightforwardly affirmed that he was presented, as head of state, with a report from his secret service, who was tasked with controlling aliens on Russian territory. The journalist asked Medvedev if aliens were living among us and he refused to elaborate further in order to “not create a panic” (a non-denial denial if there ever was one!). A great deal of this material remains classified by the Russian government, however.
Retired FSB major general and researcher with the Academy of Security, Defense and Law and Order Issues, Vasily Yeremenko, who was in charge of the KGB division overseeing the air force and aircraft manufacturing, was entrusted with collecting information on UFO sightings. He stated that these sightings were so commonplace that Missile Troops units were given instructions on how to respond if they spotted such a craft. Namely, they were instructed not to fire on the craft or create a pretext for retaliation.
During the early 1980s, they even figured out how to summon a UFO. This would happen whenever weapons testing was being conducted or a lot of military hardware was gathered in one area. He reports that during such exercises, UFOs would appear with virtual certainty, and that the objects looked like luminous spheres:
“One could say that, during that experiment, we learned how to summon a UFO. 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…It looked like this: a person on the ground would wave their arms, twice to the right and twice to the left. 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.”
