Russian prime minister says aliens are among us

On Friday, December 7, Dmitry Medvedev, Russia’s prime minister, revealed that the country not only has knowledge of the existence of extraterrestrials, but is also aware of their presence here on Earth.

Medvedev’s comments were made following an interview with five Russian TV stations. According to the Telegraph, Medvedev “let his guard down” after the interview when he thought the cameras were no longer rolling. The Telegraph reports that one of the reporters asked Medvedev to comment on whether or not the Russian president is given secret files on extraterrestrials when receiving the required briefcase to activate Russia’s nuclear weapons. He responded, “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.” He continued, “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 . . . I will not tell you how many of them are among us because it may cause panic.”

Medvedev served as Russia’s president from 2008 to 2012, so he probably knows what he is talking about. But the Telegraph, Yahoo! News, and other media outlets point out that Medvedev’s response to the “alien” question was playful and in character with his sense of humor.

  1. Or was he? 😉

  2. No, he was trying to make it humorous, but he was telling the truth. They didn’t cover up UFOs and abduction incedents as much in Russia. The public there knows more about what is going on. Secrecy was and is, enforced more in the US and in the UK.

  4. Some have speculated he was referring to that documentary. Although that documentary isn’t “well-known” as he stated, it is a possibility. But if that is the case, it’s likely he was pandering to the reporter who works for the same network that made the MIB documentary.

  5. If they do not exist, why would there even be a classification of them on a security level?

    There is the possibility of “God”. Yet there is no security classification for “God” any where.

    National Security, would deem the (Non existance to be a security risk)

  6. Isn’t it ironic now it is in Russia where you can get MORE NEWS and HONESTY than people get in the West, especially in the big bully USA.
