USSR - Media Report Multitude of UFO Sightings

By Ryan Dube

     One very interesting aspect of spending hours digging through old declassified CIA documents is occasionally coming across more evidence that the agency had a healthy interest in the topic of UFOs – particularly when the sightings took place in other countries.

For example, one Foreign Press Note dated November 22, 1989 and titled “USSR: Media Report Multitude of UFO Sightings” provides a rare glimpse into the UFO frenzy that was taking place during the cold war – not much unlike the spike in UFO interest that took place in the United States during the same time period.

In this particular report, the author provides excerpts from a variety of Russian media reports which detail the sort of sightings and claims regarding UFOs that were taking place in the USSR during the late 1980s.

Of particular interest in this report, was the plethora of witnesses and events that took place involving Russian military experts . . ..
