Dont know if I've put this in the right place, so if it isn't please now to right forum!
I found this document by chance when I was looking through a HAARP site earlier on this morning. It is just over a year ago that it was sent, so its
probably old-news to most, but thought that it was interesting, as they say that testing will start early in 2003 in 3 military testing site's.
Anyway, for those of you that havent seen it before, here it is (will add the link at the end as well).
[FBIS Transcribed Text] MOSCOW. Aug 8 (Interfax) - The Russian State Duma has expressed concern about the United States program to develop a
qualitatively new type of weapon.
"Under the High Frequency Active Auroral Research (HAARP), the US is creating new integral geophysical weapons that may influence the near-earth
medium with high-frequency radio waves," the State Duma said in an appeal circulated on Thursday.
"The significance of this qualitative leap could be compared to the transition from cold steel to fire arms, or from conventional weapons to nuclear
weapons. This new type of weapons differs from previous types in that the near-Earth medium becomes at once an object of direct influence and its
These conclusions were made by the commission of the State Duma's international affairs and defense committees, the statement reads.
The committee reported that US is planning to test three facilities of this kind. One of them is located on the military testing ground in Alaska and
its full-scale tests are to begin in early 2003. The second one is in Greenland and the third one in Norway.
"When these facilities are launched into space from Norway, Alaska and Greenland, a closed contour will be created with a truly fantastic integal
potential for influencing the near-Earth medium," the state Duma said.
The US plans to carry out large-scale scientific experiments, under the HAARP program, and not controlled by global community, will create weapons
capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provokes serious accidents in electricity networks
and in oil and gas pipelines and have a negative impact on the mental health of people populating entire regions, the deputies said.
They demanded that an international ban be put on such large-scale geophysical experiments.
The appeal, signed by 90 deputies, has been sent to President Vladimir Putin, to the Untied Nations and other International Organizations, to the
parliaments and leaders of the UN member countries, to the scientific public and to mass media outlets.
Among those who signed the appeal are Tatyana Astrakhankina, Nikolai Kharitonov, Yegor Ligachev, Sergei Reshulsky, Vitaly Sevastyanov, Viktor
Cherepkov, Valentin Zorkaltsev and Alexei Mitrofanov.
