Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev, caused a stir with UFO hunters and conspiracy theorists after making an apparent off-air joke about a secret file on aliens.
The current PM and former president had been conducting an interview on Friday for Ren TV and afterwards, while not realizing his microphone was still on, he told the journalist that had conducted the interview, that there was a secret file on aliens living on Earth among us.
Medvedev says, that the first thing each new president receives is two files, one of which is on aliens who have landed in Russia and now live among the population. He also jokes that you can get a lot of true information out of the Will Smith “Men In Black” movie.
“Along with the briefcase with nuclear codes, the president of the country is given a special ‘top secret’ folder. This folder in its entirety contains information about aliens who visited our planet. Along with this, you are given a report of the absolutely secret special service that exercises control over aliens on the territory of our country … More detailed information on this topic you can get from a well-known movie called ‘Men In Black’…”
He tells the journalist that he could not reveal, “how many of them are among us, because it may cause panic.”
Though the conversation was only caught on audio and not video, it seemed that Medvedev was talking in a humorous tone. However, Russian conspiracy theorists believe he was actually trying to get a little bit of the truth off his chest.
Two of the more well-known unexplained events in recent Russian history involve a 1984 incident where a mysterious green light lit up the cabin of a passenger aircraft, causing both pilots terminal illnesses later in life.
Then last year air traffic controllers in Siberia claimed they were buzzed by a high-speed UFO with a female sounding alien that spoke in an unintelligible cat-like language. The object then showed up on the remote Russian diamond capital of Yakutsk’s flight monitors traveling at a speed of over 6,000 mph and rapidly changing direction.
