First serious problem of foreign civilizations engaged only all-Russian scientific-research organization "Kosmopoisk." It includes more than 1,700 members and about 120 groups across the country. But due to the participation of active UFO guide "Kosmopoisk" Russia has divided into regions. And now all of unidentified flying objects recorded in the Volga and Ural districts will be studied in Perm.

The newly created regional center will have a rapid response team, which is as soon as possible will be able to visit the area of observation of anomalous phenomena or a joint expedition with the units' Kosmopoisk. "
