Hi Mac! Hi everyone!

We had a showing of the 'The Secret KGB UFO Files' just after it
was aired in the U.S. by Turner Network Television (TNT) at one
of our MUFON Ontario meetings in Toronto back in 1998. Although
we were very impressed with what we saw, most of us were not
convinced as to its reality. In the 1990s when many top Russian
scientists were getting paid about $100 a month and many high
ranking Russian government and military officials had not even
been paid for half a year or more, "cheque book" journalism by
foreign investigative reporters was a major concern in ufology.

If one checks the UFO UpDates archives they will find many posts
regarding this very controversial TV UFO documentary. Other
major Soviet/Russian UFO crashes (including the giant egg shaped
UFO which allegedly crashed in the mountains of Kirghizia in
1991 which Errol brought to our attention at a MUFON Ontario
meeting several months before the TNT TV special) seemed to
disolve away upon closer scrutiny.

To see many images of the alleged UFO crash and this other alien
"autopsy" and to read an independent evaluation of these "secret
KGB UFO" accounts mentioned in this UFO show aired on TNT, go to


Also, the TNT web site promoting this UFO documentary can still
be found at
