A story is circulating around the Internet that suggests Russia has known about alien civilizations for many decades.
Part of this fantastic tale involves a UFO that allegedly crashed in 1969, was recovered by Russian military (see image below) and a dead alien that was reportedly autopsied, according to TheVoiceofRussia.com.
If this scenario sounds familiar, it’s probably because of the most fabled and legendary story involving an alleged crashed UFO and the subsequent autopsy of its alien crew: Roswell, N.M., where those events supposedly occurred in 1947.
Despite official explanations that it was a secret military spy balloon that came down in New Mexico, the Roswell crash has kept the public enthralled for decades.
Not to be outdone, the nearly identical story emerged from the Soviet Union about an unknown craft that crashed near the former district of Sverdlovsk in 1969.
Maybe it’s just easier to pronounce Roswell vs. Sverdlovsk. But before we get all excited about the Soviet UFO-autopsy story, it should be pointed out that it’s not new. The twist in this storyline is why the Russian event is suddenly getting more media attention than it has in the past.
This entire alleged incident was actually reported on a 1998 TNT special, “The Secret KGB UFO Files,” and hosted by former James Bond actor Roger Moore. The program showed startling filmed segments of the alleged UFO crash — as well as several minutes of the supposed autopsy of the dead alien.
CAUTION: Whether or not the autopsy is real, the following video is quite graphic.
Those aren’t the only dubious stories involving UFOs and aliens to originate in Russia without any major media fanfare in the U.S. or anywhere else.
Earlier this year, the Russian Internet newspaper, Pravda.ru, suggested that a group of scientists had been in contact with extraterrestrials.
The Pravda story reported how the Ministry of Defense, in the mid 1980s, “organized a large-scale study of paranormal phenomena. The military training site was not a random choice. Experts have long come to the conclusion that UFOs inevitably appear in places where military equipment and weapons are tested.”
Vasily Yeremenko, a member of the Academy of Security, Defense and Law Enforcement — and formerly with the Soviet Union’s security agency, the KGB — was quoted by Pravda as saying that “the UFO topic today is ubiquitous. Precisely because of its scandalous nature, serious scientists are not willing to identify their position on this issue.”
Aside from the question of why the 1969 crashed UFO-ET autopsy is making the rounds again, is it a surprise that mainstream U.S. media hasn’t paid more attention to these stories over the years?
