    I'm quite skeptical on it personally, I couldn't tell you whether advanced aliens exist or not, but I don't think I'd be convinced until actually having seen one myself, but as for the Russians claiming aliens are real, well again I'm really sure that much credibility could be placed here. There was two stories I came across both from the Telegraph, one where a Russian politian claimed to have met one on his balcony and another story where Dmitry Medvedev jokes about a secret alien dossier and then goes on talk about the film Men in Black. So none of it really that contraversial really, certainly nothing on the scale of another Roswell incedent type situation given all the conspiracy theories that has sparked over the years.

    If I were a shrewd leader I’d lie to the public that we actually are having visitations by ET. With my fear mongering ‘alien invasion is imminent’ address to the nation, I’d keep myself in power, raise taxes and back it all up by releasing propaganda videos of blobs in the sky. I’d also probably shut down all the conspiracy theorist website making claims that there are no aliens.

    This is just a ploy for the aluminum foil industries. Soon you will hear a broadcast stating "The movie Signs was correct, aluminum foil can stop aliens from accessing your brain, the Americans actually got something right." After that fallacy is broadcasted, millions of russians will purchase the foil, and then aluminum foil will exceed crude oil as the most sought after commodity.

    Very interesting thread. Because I live in Moscow and I hear nothing about it. Maybe our channels have some censorship.And conceal some things from their citizens.Would you be so kind as to give me a link where talking about it?

    See the first link in post #3. It is pretty obvious Medvedev was joking but some people seem to have taken it seriously.

    Year, really, it's very interesting article. Yes, sometimes Medvedev likes joking. Sometime he is cheerful politic.
    I remeber when in Russia were many forest fires he was making these funny things namely dog's balloons
