We've seen one wild UFO tale after another in Pravda, none of
them believable.

Which goes to show, by the way, that Pravda isn't any more the
sober leading voice in Russian journalism that it was in the
Soviet days. When, of course, it printed lies, but at least they
were sober, establishment lies. Pravda now, I gather from its
website, is an upstart publication, born from disuptes over who
owned the Pravda name, and now representing a nationalist wing
(extremist, possibly) of the old Communist party. I gather the
people behind the paper want attention, and tabloid UFO tales
are one way to get it.
