From the days of the ancient Rus’, UFOs have hovered over the land, and their visits have been recorded. The research and hunt for UFOs had intensified in the era of Soviet totalitarian rule: the entire Armed Forces, security and espionage mechanisms had been used to study, repel, or capture uninvited guests in the skies and waters of the huge country. It was the tense period of dramatic sightings, strange encounters, losses of life and machinery, crashes and landings, dark secrets, and fantastic revelations. Cases in the presentation include: Tunguska…Dalnegorsk…Voronezh…Monchegorsk…Lake Baykal…humanoid “swimmers”…deep-water ”kvakeri”…lost Phobos-2…KGB’s files…Arctic intrusions…SETKA secrecy…WWII battlefield sightings…revelations of the cosmonauts…visits to nuclear power plants and classified facilities…conflict in Antarctica…And the XXI century Russian State research: top secret, hi-tech, focused, Earth-based and via the Space Forces.
My name is Paul Stonehill; I am a former Soviet refugee. Now I am a published American author, lecturer, TV consultant and researcher of Eurasian (including the Caucasus Mountains, Ukrainian, Russian, East European, Central Asian, and Far Eastern) paranormal phenomena. My articles have been translated and published in several languages. And my books about Russian UFOS and USOS (most co-authored with the hard-working British UFO researcher Philip Mantle), have been translated to 7 languages. Since my youth in the USSR, I have been interested in the study of forbidden Ufology in my homeland and pursued my quest through the years, with my Russian colleagues, and other means.
