Aleksandr Plaksin is a military geophysicist and played a prominent role in the secret research conducted by the Soviet military.

In his article Plaksin "reveals" several interesting

1. Many recent achievements of the American military-industrial
complex have been generated in the labs dedicated to the
research of paranormal phenomena.

2. 'Aliens' have nothing to do with American advanced technology
(i.e., Stealth).

3. In his 15 years of UFO research A. Plaksin had never obtained
direct proof that there are alien civilizations active on our

4. Americans have researched UFOs since 1954 (U.S. Air Force),
and since 1974 they have operated a secret scientific research
center to study anomalous phenomena and UFOs through the use of
a special Earth-based station. Hence, they (the Americans) were
able to create a superweapon. (A. Plaksin goes into scary
detaisl, but basically his aim is to denigrate American HAARP,
future U.S. policies, etc.)

5. A. Plaksin describes the creation of the Soviet program(s) to
study the anomalous phenomena from 1978 on. Good stuff; we have
gone into great detail in our book to describe such programs,
and have more information. But A. Plaksin was definitely one of
the key people, albeit, not the top brass.

6. A. Plaksin goes into fascinating details; the information
after all, came from Soviet military branches, the Navy, the
border guards, tanti-aircraft units, etc. Some of such cases I
described in The Soviet UFO Files (1998).

I was glad to find in his interview in Komsomol'skaya Pravda
fascinating details of a sighting from the Borisoglebsk airfield
(the immobile black cloud). The area itelf is very interesting,
and in our book, we dedicated some pages to the strane goings-on
there; the "cloud", too, is of great interest; there have been
other very strange "clouds" over the former USSR and Russia.

7. A. Plaksin mentions the infamous and very dangerous 1982 case
(and gives the correct date; Mr. Sokolov who has changed his
story repeatedly, ought to be ashamed. It was the 4th of
Octiber, not the 5th; and nothing but UFO almost triggerred a
nuclear war).

8. A. Plaksin states that there were no UFO crash in Kazakhstan
in 1978; no secret storage for UFO fragments in Mitische (Moscow
area), no supersecret storage in Novaya Zemlya..

9. A. Plaksin is of the opinion that the unidentified objects
("20 percent", acc. to him) are of physical origin that is still
inknown to us. Our laws of physics cannot explain such objects.
He mentions two fascinating episodes (1977 and 1981).

10. Although A. Plaksin states that most likely there are no
aliens on Earth, he also mentions that because of military
secrecy he cannot reveal everything he knows.

you're ripping text from a website with no credentials and posting it word for word. Make up a more interesting story and link to a more interesting website.

EDIT: seriously, you contributed nothing but someone else's text.

Please do not use the word ripping. There are 'ex' quotes around the text. I found the website interesting, if you do not then thats is your outlook.

This is from Black Vault

A sharp increase in UFO activity in 1977-1978 (especially, the Petrozavodsk Case) had forced appropriate departments within the USSR Academy of Sciences to agree to a research program for anomalous atmospheric phenomena. The code name for this program was SETKA-AN (Akademii Nauk Set’--Academy of Sciences Net, or AS-NET.)

The Soviet Ministry of Defense embarked on a similar program, dubbed SETKA-MO (Ministerstva Oboroni Set’).

Reportedly, it was the Military-Industrial Commission that had ordered this research. The powerful Military-Industrial Commission decided to create two UFO research centers, one in the USSR Academy of Sciences, the other in the USSR Defense Ministry. Both centers aided each other’s research and exchanged information. But we are not completely certain; there have been reports from Russia that Yuri Andropov, the chairman of the KGB from 1967 to 1982, and the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1982 to 1984, was extremely interested in the UFO phenomenon (specifically, in one case investigated by SETKA researchers). He had enough power to give impetus to the creation of the secret program.

The quotes from Plaskin are on this website too

OK - I apologize, ripping was the wrong word. I really am sorry.

And I have also gained slight interest in the topic, since you brought it up. So, thank you for that.

But, let me ask you this. (and I want to be neutral here)....

What are your thoughts on the subject? You haven't presented anything original.

I really am neutral here, just provoking conversation.

The UFO phenomenon IMO is very real. The US and Russians have been investigating it for years. I am trying to find more articles on the Soviet UFO research and this is a my beginning too for this topic.

IMO ET civilizations exist and we have been seeded here on Earth.

I really am neutral here, just provoking conversation

I also am interested in a good exchange here, and my posting was with that intention
