Soviet UFOs: Behind the Iron Curtain

On episode 239 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we peek behind the Iron Curtain to hear extraordinary accounts of UFO pursuits, crashes, and encounters from the former Soviet Union. Crash retrievals with supposed occupants, breaking in to an almost impenetrable craft, UFOs over a nuclear missile site, and an underwater battle with aquatic aliens... these are the sensational, yet sometimes well-documented cases to be unearthed in Soviet UFO files. Are these files merely a game of disinformation during the hight of the Cold War, or could they be true accounts of Russian military and civilian witnesses coming in to contact with something truly otherworldly?
