UFOs Disrupt Russian Nukes

UFOs have shown an apparent curiosity about nuclear weapons on both sides of the battlefield.

There are more than two hundred reports of UFOs being spotted over U.S. nuclear missile silos by former military officers and personnel. In some cases, the missiles' arming mechanisms were mysteriously activated during the UFO activity.  

A new study released this week reports that UFOs have been spotted interacting in a similar way with Russia's nuclear arsenal. As with some U.S. incidents, Russian nukes were mysteriously activated during UFO encounters. 

Author Robert Hastings has studied the phenomenon of UFOs and nuclear missiles for 30 years.  He organized the well publicized 2010 Disclosure Conference in Washington, D.C., where many former U.S. military personnel, including missile launch operators and base commanders where the incidents occurred spoke publicly for the first time about what they witnessed (see video below).

In one U.S. incident that attracted worldwide headlines in October, 2010, 50 Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) were disabled at Wyoming's Warren Air Force Base during a communications failure.  It was later revealed by military witnesses that a UFO was spotted hovering over several silos during the breakdown.

Roger Marsh of the Examiner filed this report on Hastings' latest findings from Russia:

The U.S. nuclear arms program was not the only country affected by UFO intervention that seemed to be testing how to launch or possibly shut down a nuclear arms launch, as author and UFO-nukes researcher Robert Hastings details in a report released today where similar incidents occurred in the Soviet Union.

Hastings kicks off the story with what he believes is one of the most disturbing incidents from a U.S. military base - the testimony of David H. Schuur, who was a Minuteman missile crew member in the 455th/91st Strategic Missile Wing at Minot AFB from December 1963 through November 1967.

The testimony includes Schuur's account that a UFO once activated the launch sequence in most of his Minuteman missiles. Part of that testimony includes:

“However, when the object passed over our flight, we started receiving many spurious indications on our console. The object was apparently sending some kind of signals into each missile. Not every missile got checked [out] by the object, but there were several that did. Maybe six, seven, or eight. Maybe all ten got checked, but I don’t think so. As this thing was passing over each missile site, we would start getting erratic indications on that particular missile. After a few seconds, everything reset back to normal. But then the next missile showed spurious indicators so the object had apparently moved on to that one and did the same thing to it. Then on to the next one, and so on. It was as if the object was scanning each missile, one by one."

The next day, the logs and tapes were turned in, and personnel were told - "It never happened."

Following publication of these and other similar events in Hastings' book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinatry Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, former Soviet Union military came forward with their own encounters.

Hastings writes: "One of those events occurred on October 4, 1982, near the Ukrainian town of Byelokoroviche, when a disc-shaped object apparently hovered over an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) base for an extended period. At one point during the encounter, a number of nuclear missiles suddenly activated—without authorization from Moscow or any action being taken by the missile launch officers—and were preparing to launch."

Hastings report quotes a Russian newspaper article where a military eyewitness to an event there talks about what happened on October 4, 1982.

“It was unbelievable. Approximately one-and-a-half kilometers from us hovered an elliptical-shaped object,” the former rocketeer excitedly told Life. “The dimensions of the UFO shocked us—as large as a five-story house! Barely-visible lights flew up to the object. The guys [and I] were on our way to dinner when we all saw it! The UFO continued to hover, slowly moving to the left, as if drifting. One officer tried to get closer to it in a car but the UFO flew away. At this time all of the missile launchers malfunctioned. The UFO [also] blocked radio signal reception in the bunker. We heard only complete silence, which we could not understand, because this had never happened before. We were [later] told that the radio equipment was burnt!”

The Soviet missiles in this instance also appeared to launch, similar to what happened at the U.S. base.
