UFOs have turned from a joke into a serious business in the United States. The truth is there, but no one knows what it is

For decades, especially in the post-World War II years, unidentified flying objects (UFOs) fueled conspiracy theories and were considered by many to be fantasy. cottages who has watched too many sci-fi movies and TV series. But this reality has been changing lately. UFOs have become serious business and have taken over even the most unexpected media, from the newspaper “New York Times” and from the magazine “New Yorker” to the program “60 minutes” CBS. Now, many years later, when the topic has been taboo for US officials, Congress is preparing to release a report with everything government agencies know about “unidentified airborne phenomena” (an alternative term to UFOs and considered less stigmatizing).

Even before the document was released, the Department of Defense attracted the attention of several suspected UFO recordings. Last year, the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of three videos captured during Navy training flights and published between December 2017 and March 2018 by The New York Times, including one. accidentin 2004, when unidentified objects approached US aircraft carriers, 160 km off the coast of San Diego, and were pursued by F / A 18 fighters. So it was almost a taboo. In April and May of this year, the Pentagon did the same for two other videos recorded in 2019 by the naval forces: one with pyramid-shaped objects flying over the aircraft carrier USS Russell, the other showing an unidentified object diving into the water. sea ​​off the coast of California.

The recent release of these records, explains the magazine “Super interesting”, linked to a law passed last year by the US Congress with the backing of major Democrats and Republicans and signed by former President Donald Trump, who initially criticized the law. Designed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including economic incentives and emergency assistance paid to U.S. citizens Appropriations Act HR 133 it includes another, the 2021 Intelligence Authorization Act, which requires, as a condition of intelligence funding, that the Navy publish “detailed analyzes of unidentified aerial phenomena” and that the FBI investigate them.

In August, the Ministry of Defense created task force collect data on these mysterious phenomena from various government agencies, and now the final report will be presented to Congress. However, this should not shed new light on the possibility that these phenomena, after all, are proof of the existence of extraterrestrial life, as some fans of speculative theories hope. According to “The newspaper “New York Times”, after examining over 120 incidents seen by military pilots between 2004 and 2015, task force did not find an explanation for most of the described phenomena. The main finding is that the vast majority of reported incidents were not caused by US technology.

One of the most talked about hypotheses is that many of these objects are experimental drones from other countries (such as China or Russia) that have invaded US airspace. The reality, however, is far less interesting, according to Andrew Fraknoi, an astronomer at the University of San Francisco: Most UFO sightings can be attributed to terrestrial or celestial phenomena such as vehicle lights or space debris returning to the atmosphere. “There has been a flood of misleading UFO advertisements lately. [baseada em relatórios militares]… A sober analysis of these statements shows that there are far fewer of them than meets the eye, ”he told the magazine. Scientific American

Putin has repeatedly consulted with Russian Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu about the invasion, Europa Press told Ukraine’s chief intelligence director Vadim Skibitsky.

According to Skibitsky, it was the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), which is responsible for counterintelligence and espionage work, that put pressure on Gerasimov and other military agencies to agree to launch an offensive. .

However, according to the Ukrainian intelligence services, the FSB considered that by the end of February sufficient preparations had already been made to guarantee the success of the Russian Armed Forces in a lightning invasion.

However, according to Kyiv, the Russian General Staff provided the Russian troops with supplies and ammunition for only three days, hoping that the offensive would be swift and immediately successful.

The head of Ukrainian intelligence also emphasized the cooperation of local residents, who always provided the Ukrainian authorities with up-to-date information about the Russian army, such as the number of soldiers or the exact location of troops.

The military offensive launched on February 24 by Russia in Ukraine caused at least 6.5 million internally displaced persons and more than 7.8 million refugees to European countries, which is why the UN classifies this migration crisis as the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945). gg.). ).

At the moment, 17.7 million Ukrainians are in need of humanitarian assistance, and 9.3 million are in need of food aid and housing.

The UN has presented as confirmed 6,755 civilian deaths and 10,607 wounded since the beginning of the war, stressing that these figures are much lower than the real ones.

Life sentence for former Swedish official for spying for Russia

Published

on

A Stockholm court on Monday sentenced a former Swedish intelligence officer to life in prison for spying for Russia, and his brother to at least 12 years in prison. In what is considered one of the most serious cases in Swedish counterintelligence history, much of the trial took place behind closed doors in the name of national security.

According to the prosecution, it was Russian military intelligence, the GRU, who took advantage of the information provided by the two brothers between 2011 and their arrest at the end of 2021.

Peyman Kia, 42, has held many senior positions in the Swedish security apparatus, including the army and his country’s intelligence services (Säpo). His younger brother, Payam, 35, is accused of “participating in the planning” of the plot and of “managing contacts with Russia and the GRU, including passing on information and receiving financial rewards.”

Both men deny the charges, and their lawyers have demanded an acquittal on charges of “aggravated espionage,” according to the Swedish news agency TT.

The trial coincides with another case of alleged Russian espionage, with the arrest of the Russian-born couple in late November in a suburb of Stockholm by a police team arriving at dawn in a Blackhawk helicopter.

Research website Bellingcat identified them as Sergei Skvortsov and Elena Kulkova. The couple allegedly acted as sleeper agents for Moscow, having moved to Sweden in the late 1990s.

According to Swedish press reports, the couple ran companies specializing in the import and export of electronic components and industrial technology.

According to Swedish authorities, the arrests are not related to the trial of the Kia brothers.

“They can strengthen their positions. We understand that this can happen. At the same time, we do not rule out that they will announce a general mobilization,” Danilov said in an interview with the Ukrainska Pravda online publication.

Danilov believed that this mobilization would also be convened “to exterminate as many as possible” of Russian citizens, so that “they would no longer have any problems on their territory.”

In this sense, Danilov also reminded that Russia has not given up on securing control over Kyiv or the idea of ​​the complete “destruction” of Ukraine. “We have to be ready for anything,” he said.

“I want everyone to understand that [os russos] they have not given up on the idea of ​​destroying our nation. If they don’t have Kyiv in their hands, they won’t have anything in their hands, we must understand this,” continued Danilov, who also did not rule out that a new Russian offensive would come from “Belarus and other territories.” .

As such, Danilov praised the decision of many of its residents who chose to stay in the Ukrainian capital when the war broke out in order to defend the city.

“They expected that there would be panic, that people would run, that there would be nothing to protect Kyiv,” he added, referring to President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The military offensive launched on February 24 by Russia in Ukraine caused at least 6.5 million internally displaced persons and more than 7.8 million refugees to European countries, which is why the UN classifies this migration crisis as the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945). gg.). ).
