Russians are Fearing UFO and Psychic Attacks

The mainstream media is keeping up on the mainstream news coming out of Russian and Ukraine concerning the war between those two countries. However, with any conflict, it is the chatter that is NOT mainstream that gives a better indication of how things are going. Two small items in the news this week may give big insights on how nervous the Russian miliary leadership is about unconventional psychic weapons and possible involvement by a non-aligned third party – extraterrestrials! A leaked memo revealed a concern for psychic interference, while an unknown aerial craft shot down in the Rostov Oblast near the Ukrainian border is being whispered about as being a non-human-made UFO.

Who leaked that memo?

“The FSO is preparing personnel for a “massive ideological attack”, in which the enemy uses the media, social networks, religious organizations, hypnosis (!), psi generators (?!) and even some “everyday items in prepared packaging”.”

The exiled Russian news outlet Insider released the contents of a leaked memo – “"Plan for the moral and psychological support of the transfer of the Operational Directorate of the FSO  from peacetime to wartime" from the Russian Federal Guard Service (FSO), which is chartered with protecting high-ranking officials from President Valdimir Putin on down, and with performing counterintelligence functions within the FSO. It is the latter job that concerns the FSO – Insider says they call the enemy “cunning and insidious” because it is seeking to "decrease the psychological stability of the personnel, their moral disorientation and bringing them to a state of unwillingness to resist." Before you say “Been there, done that, check the recent U.S. political campaigns,” this is more than the manipulation of mainstream media outlets, social networks on the Internet, books, brochures and other conventional means. It is also more than infiltrating social movements, non-governmental and religious (pseudo-religious) organizations and other groups to influence the government and the public. According to Insight, the FSO’s biggest concern is being "prepared for the psychological infection of personnel” and people “possessing hypnotic abilities" to hypnotize and psychologically infect the Kremlin guards and others.

“In addition to social networks and hypnosis, as indicated in the plan, the enemy intends to use more sophisticated methods: 1) software and hardware bookmarks containing the functions of creating sound and visual effects, 2) psycho-corrective games, 3) chemical and biological formulations of psychological action, 4) computer psi -viruses and programs of hidden influence on the operators of computer equipment, 5) psi-generators, 6) low-frequency acoustic generators, 7) advertising products, 8) everyday items in prepared packaging.”

According to Insider, FSO Deputy Director Alexander Komov is directly responsible for the implementation of a secret plan to resist these psychological attacks against the Russian people, military and leaders. Of particular concern is the “psycho-corrective games” which somehow influence child psychologists to develop attention and overcome fears in preschool children. They don’t need to do the same thing at the top because, as Foreign Policy points out, Russian leaders, including Putin, already believe in mysticism, astrology, numerology, and psychics, 20 percent of the public has visited a psychic, and folk medicine, psychic healing and other forms of mysticism are common in Russian society. Throw in mysticism and the Russian Orthodox beliefs about the apocalypse and satanic influence and you have a picture of a society whose minds can easily be influenced, controlled and overcome by weaponized versions of them. All that is left is to start those beliefs earlier – in children.

Computer psi-viruses are alleged psychological viruses downloaded with porn on PCs, cell phones and tablets – Russian leaders are restricting Internet access and possession of phones and computers. The psi generator or generator of "black matter" is something rumored to have been considered by Russia but it was never finished, while the low-frequency acoustic generators became famous a few years ago with the Havana syndrome affecting U.S. diplomats and their staffs. Foreign Policy says the “plan” is to address the psychological fears of these attacks rather than the attacks themselves.

“Tactics include psychically strengthening officers by telling them stories about the bravery and heroism of their colleagues. Another means of counteracting psychological infection involves giving officers tours of the FSO Hall of Fame and History and visits to Moscow’s Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan—presumably to pray the devil away. There will also be a kind of buddy system: “It is necessary to attach the most politically savvy officers of the FSO to the least stable,” the memo reads. Or, as a precaution, it may be necessary to commit psychologically vulnerable officers who suffer “neuropsychiatric instability” to a hospital in these mysteriously perilous times.”

That doesn’t sound like much of a plan – tell motivational stories, pray and lock up anyone acting funny. The Insider blames this on the deputy director of the FSO, Gen. Alexander Komov, who has a group of freelance advisors that includes astrologers, black magicians, and psychics, and is referred to as the Astrologer and the Stargazer general. Natalia Antonova, a Washington-based writer and Russia expert who spent seven years reporting from Moscow, told Foreign Policy this atmosphere of fantasy, fear and psychological trauma is to be expected after the Russian army keeps collapsing against the Ukrainian resistance.

“With all of these delusions that have been festering for years, when they run up against the cold, hard reality that they can’t win in Ukraine, they start breaking down mentally.”

Is what they are seeing real and feeling or the reult of hypnosis?

Could that “atmosphere of fantasy” be the reason some Russian leaders fear they are also fighting extraterrestrials? Newsweek reports that Vasily Golubev, the governor of in the southern Russian region of Rostov oblast, told Russian media that a "UFO" was shot down in that region. It was a "small-size object in the shape of a ball" that was flying "in the wind" at an altitude of around one and a half miles on January 3. When it moved over the village of Sultan Sala in the region's Myasnikovsky district, Golubev gave the order “to liquidate it." The local news outlet Pivyet Rostov called it a "UFO” and the channel Ostorozhna, Novosti (Caution, News) published a video showing a shining object flying and then exploding in the sky. The Russian media site Kosmo.com and other sites outside of Russia (including in the U.S.) also referred to the object as a “UFO.” Was it an ET-controlled spaceship or a Ukrainian drone? One would think that, with the amount of drones flying on both sides of the conflict, the leaders would choose to avoid panicking their people and identify them correctly, but perhaps Golubev still doesn’t want his people to know that enemy drones can slip past Russian defenses … only ships from other stars can. Or has he come under the control of enemy hypnosis?

It should come as no surprise that this war is turning to psychological strategies and misleading reports as it drags on with few signs of ending. These should serve as a warning that the next battles will likely follow the same strategies … and worse.
