RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin could be the man to make world history by announcing intelligent aliens exist and have visited Earth, a "truth" campaigner believes.
US citizen, Stephen Bassett, executive director of the Paridigm Research Group International (PRG), has spent a week in Russia trying to convince Mr Putin of the importance of lifting an alleged “truth embargo” that stops world leaders telling the public the truth about aliens.
Mr Bassett, who is the only registered lobbyist in the US on the subject of alien disclosure, believes a conspiracy theory that the truth of aliens has been withheld due to the fear of the impact on religion and the rule of law if we all knew.
He believes the conspiracy has been in place since at least 1947 when a flying saucer allegedly crash landed at Roswell, New Mexico.
Mr Bassett was interviewed for a Russian documentary during his visit.
A PRG statement said: “During the interview, which will be broadcast in Russian in August, Bassett discussed various considerations that might prompt Russian President Vladimir Putin to make the first formal acknowledgment by a head of state regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
Bassett discussed various considerations that might prompt Russian President Vladimir Putin to make the first formal acknowledgment by a head of state regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
“PRG believes this may be the first time anyone has made this argument on Russian media inside or outside Russia.”
He also met former Soviet and Russian military and agency officials, who are now involved in the disclosure movement.
Mr Basset said: “Since 1945 the United States and the Soviet Union/Russia have spent in excess of $40trillion contesting over political and economic ideologies, fighting proxy wars around the world and building the most dangerous threat to the human race ever conceived.
“The Cold War has never really ended with gaming, brinksmanship and destructive policies continuing from both sides.
“While humans have continued to destroy each other and the biosphere in which they live, there is a galaxy full of life waiting to be engaged.
“The extraterrestrial reality transcends politics, religion, race, and war. The embargo on this truth has accomplished nothing but delay the advancement of human civilisation.
“Any number of heads of state could end this embargo at any time, and it can’t come soon enough.
“What the keepers of the truth embargo either fail or refuse to realise is a post-disclosure world could be the bridge between the US, China and Russia that would permit the necessary geopolitical realignments setting a new course away from the seemingly permanent war economies wasting vital resources and keeping the world always on the brink.”
