Paul Stonehill - UFOs of Russia/USSR and Eurasia
This lecture includes Ancient Astronauts of Eurasia, the Russian space program and UFOs, Russian military research of UFOs and USOs (unidentified submersible objects), and strange discoveries and uncanny cases.
UFOs in the oceans and space: from the secret files of the Soviet Union and Russia: heretofore unavailable information regarding USOs; and sightings of UFOs by Russian cosmonauts.
During the presentation, Paul will go through a visual history of Russian UFOlogy, including the main cases, such as the Dalnegorsk 1986 case (Russian Far East); military encounters, and a Soviet government-sanctioned scientific-military UFO research until called SETKA (1978-1991). Paul will also cover Russian research into USOs (unidentified submersible objects, aka underwater UFOs). Many cases are from Far East; the North, and Arctic territories. One particular USO mystery, the “kvakeri” phenomenon, warranted a special Soviet Navy research program and is still a state secret.
