You don't need to refer to Roswell researchers to make a quick
evaluation of her story.

Let's see:

Flying saucers of the 1947 wave would be secret planes derived
from nazi flying saucers. I challenge you to quote only one
serious aviation historian or specialist who would believe that.

Children geneticaly altered by Dr Mengele to make them look like
Grey aliens. I challenge you to find only one serious biologist
who would believe that. In case you don't know, the structure of
DNA was found in 1953 by Crick and Watson. In 1947, Dr Mengele
was hiding in South America, and nobody was talking about Grey
aliens yet.

As for Stalin, he had other matters to attend to, rather than
playing a Flying saucer comedy near Roswell.

Conclusion: just another grotesque story.

The more you insist, the more you sink.
