KGB UFO Documents
This documentary delves into the some of the most bizarre UFO
reports in Soviet Russian history and investigates rumors of a treasure
trove of KGB UFO documents that remain top secret.
Immediately following the great UFO wave of 1952 and
military debunkery of the radar and visual sightings plus jet
interceptions over Washington, D.C. in August, the CIA’s Office of
Scientific Investigation took particularly interest in UFOs. Though the
Extraterrestrial hypothesis was mentioned, it was generally given little
are rumors that there are 'Secret KGB Files' regarding UFOs and they
were reportedly smuggled out of the former Soviet Union.
However, others within the CIA, such as the Psychological Strategy
Board, were more concerned about how an unfriendly power such as the
Soviet Union might use UFOs for psychological warfare purposes, exploit
the gullibility of the public for the sensational, and clog intelligence
Under a directive from the National Security Council to review the
problem, in January 1953, the CIA organized the Robertson Panel, a group
of scientists who quickly reviewed the Blue Book’s best evidence,
including motion pictures and an engineering report that concluded that
the performance characteristics were beyond that of earthly craft.
After only two days' review, all cases were claimed to have conventional
explanations. An official policy of public debunkery was recommended
using the mass media and authority figures in order to influence public
opinion and reduce the number of UFO reports.
Soviet UFO Secrets Revealed
In an investigation of some of the most puzzling UFO sightings in Soviet history, we uncover the work of an underground network of UFO believers and reveal a clandestine 13-year government investigation of UFOs.
Russian UFO enthusiasts believe that proof of alien encounters exists,
but is being hidden from them! We also meet George Knapp, an American
broadcast journalist who traveled to Russia in the early 1990s and
believes there's a treasure trove of KGB UFO files that remain
The Russians approached the subject of UFOs with the
utmost seriousness and attention to detail. Boris Sokolov, a retired
Russian colonel ran an in-depth study in 1980. "For 10 years," Sokolov
said, "the entire Soviet Union became one gigantic UFO listening post."
There were 40 cases where pilots encountered UFOs, explained Sokolov.
Initially, they were commanded to chase, then shoot the UFO. But when
the pilots engaged, the UFO would speed up. On two occasions, pilots
gave chase, lost control and crashed, with the crew killed on impact.
After these unfortunate incidents, the pilots received another order:
When they saw a UFO they should change course - and get out. On October
5th, 1983 Sokolov received an order from his commander to leave
immediately for the Ukraine. A report from the base commander to the
Chief of the General Staff claimed that the day before, from 4 until 8
in the evening, a UFO had been observed near the base.
During that time, the missile launch codes had mysteriously been
enabled. How this happened has never adequately been explained. Dr
Rimili Avramenko, a Russian scientist revealed that during the Vietnam
War, a massive UFO flew over Hanoi.
Although every major weapon in that city had its sights set on the
craft, it didn't budge. UFO sightings by Soviet cosmonauts are not
uncommon. Unlike American astronauts' reluctance to talk about the
subject, Soviet references to UFOs were reported from the very
beginning, with Yuri Gagarin himself.

For five decades, American agencies have stockpiled information on UFOs.
So did their counterparts behind the iron curtain. Soldiers, scientists
and spies all paint a disturbing picture of the KGB's secret campaign.

UFO - Cylinder Chased by Soviet MIG-21
MIG-21's were scrambled to
intercept an unknown craft flying at very high speed which is visible
here as a large cylindrical shaped object.
And as the Russian planes close-in the UFO suddenly picks up speed and
disappears. Pilots believed that this object must have reached Mach-3 in
around ten seconds.
In documents, Gagarin is quoted as saying UFOs are real, they fly at
incredible speeds and that he would tell more about what he had seen in
orbit - provided he be given permission to do so.
According to Cosmonaut
Mus Manarov on the 1991 Mir Mission: “It happened during a visit
mission, when all our attention was focused on the slowly approaching
space capsule… It is possible that it was a kind of UFO.”
Yuri Andropov, the former Soviet leader and
long-time head of the KGB, had an acute personal interest in UFOs and
ordered a 13-year programme that required every soldier in the military
to monitor sightings over Russian territory.
Through Andropov's personal
interest, in 1978, two committees were established to investigate UFOs,
one military and one civilian.
Andropov ordered four million Soviet soldiers to file detailed reports
of incidents. According to some sources, the programme led to hundreds
of thousands of sightings being recorded in the 13 years before it was
abandoned with the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1990.
cases had a 'rational explanation and were mainly linked to technical
issues like missile launches'.
