During the Cold War, it was impossible to leak information outside the Soviet Union. Due to top-notch secrecy, military officers and personnel never discussed UFOs during the Soviet era. Meanwhile, in the United States, UFO conferences were held due to the increase in UFO sightings. After the collapse of the USSR, people came forward to talk about UFOs in Russia, including the officers of the Soviet Air Forces. Major General Vasily Alexeyev claimed that the Soviets had made contact with UFOs.
In 1997, Dr. Valery Uvarov interviewed the Head of the USSR Flight Security Service, Major General Vasily Alexeyev, on the subject of UFOs. Dr. Uvarov is the head of the Department of UFO Research, Paleosciences, Paleotechnology at the Russian National Security Academy. Subsequently, the text of the interview was published exclusively in the German edition of MAGAZINE 2000plus in May 2000.
There is always a doubt about Major General Alekseyev\’s existence, but he exists. His identity was confirmed in the book entitled “Russia\’s Air Power at the Crossroads”, written by Benjamin S. Lambeth. All of the research mentioned in this book was funded by the US Air Force, making it the most reliable source to confirm the existence of this Soviet general.
During the 1980s, General Alekseyev worked on the core team that involved him with units in the field. From there, he learned about many reports of unexplained phenomena. There were eyewitnesses to the phenomenon and this was reflected in specific documents and reports from officials. This caused the Soviet Defense Ministry and other departments to investigate. They sent the experts to places where UFOs were often seen.
He said UFOs often appeared at various military bases or anywhere where “there is a high concentration of advanced science and, to some extent, danger. Because every nuclear rocket, every new air force installation represents a breakthrough in both scientific and military terms.”
Furthermore, he stated that individual officers and commanders who were aware of the phenomenon had no official guidelines or instructions on the matter, so they investigated it in their own way.
“I know that in some places they even learned to create a situation that would deliberately provoke the appearance of a UFO. A UFO would appear where there is an increase in military activity linked to, say, the transport of “special” cargo. It was enough to artificially stimulate or schedule such a movement for a UFO to appear,” General Alekseyev said.
In addition, the Soviets learned to make contact with UFOs. According to him, the military moved their hand in various directions which caused the sphere (UFO) to flatten in the same direction.
For example, if you raised your arms three times, the UFO would flatten in the vertical direction three times as well. In the early 1980s, the Soviets ordered the experiments to be carried out using technical devices (theodolites, radar stations and others), whereby unidentified objects were firmly recorded as instrumental data.
General Alekseyev shared an incredible incident when a team of Soviet scientists and other experts had an airborne UFO encounter. They flew to Novosibirsk from Moscow to investigate a plane crash. Upon returning, a UFO accompanied his plane in the air. As a research team, they observed the object, sketched it, and even collected data for scientific analysis.
He understood that the Ministry of Defense, the Academy of Sciences and the intelligence services were studying UFOs/UFOs, but those not directly involved in the investigation had no idea what was going on. He blamed politics for not leaving an invention open in the undefined objects. “I think politics interfered with science here. The investigation of what was not identified and not understood was carried out, above all, to clarify things,” he said.
General Alekseyev even talked about encounters between UFOs and the military. He remembered an incident that happened to two warrant officers on the outskirts of Moscow. One of them telepathically made contact with the ship and was even invited to enter it, but refused for fear of entering the ship. Alekseyev personally saw the drawings of the ship made by this officer. The Soviet general believed that there are greater chances that UFOs are extraterrestrials or belong to other civilizations.
