The Soviet leadership then headed by Joseph Stalin didn’t believe Romay’s lies at all. (General Roger Romay, was commander of the 8th American Air Brigade, who declared that the Roswell incident was a mere crash of a weather balloon). That was the very beginning of a campaign of mass disinformation. The USSR believed that the story about a weather balloon crashing was just an attempt to hide the truth. The military unit that recovered the remains of the UFO was believed to be America’s best trained Air Force unit.
In order to clear up the situation, Joseph Stalin ordered three Soviet scientists to research data obtained by the KGB in the USA and define to what extent such mysterious objects were dangerous for the Soviet Union. These three men were talented mathematician Mstislav Keldysh, chemist Alexander Topchiyev, and physician Sergey Korolev.
In 1948, on Stalin’s order, the first sample of a UFO was brought to the Moscow region. The find was dug up, cut into pieces, and loaded onto trucks. The parts were taken to a secret testing area in the Moscow region.
Joseph Stalin personally controlled the project and completely relied upon Sergey Korolev’s research. Joseph Stalin insisted that the group of Soviet scientists must successfully complete their research and take the lead over the Americans’ space program.
A victim of Stalin's 1938 Great Purge, he was confined for almost six years, including some months in a Siberian gulag.

I'm one of the people who believe a lot can happen in 65 years, and I really don't think getting something into space is outside the realms of possibility within 65 years once you can get something into the sky.
Once you know how to do something, it is easy to improve that technology. Look how far computers have come in the past 20 years. I do admit that the authenticity of the lunar landing is debatable, but I think this business about back-engineered alien technology is complete nonsense.

Remember, in 1969 computers had as much mem and computational power as a child's calculator today! Was that enough to land a man on the Moon?
