Foreign journalists, trying to deal with what was happening in the center of Moscow on December 10, the day of mass meeting "For Fair Elections", faced with the unknown. Looking amateur record protestors, members of a number of foreign media outlets came to the conclusion that the following happens UFO. "UAV" community of citizen journalism "Ridus", which in that day from a height of several meters shot rally disaffected foreigners had not been identified.
Especially impressionable were British. According to the newspaper The Daily Telegraph, «unknown aircraft chained to the astonished stares of hundreds of witnesses." It's definitely not a helicopter, the newspaper says, he flew silently, all in a pulsating colored lights, and from the "body" stuck "whiskers." In the author's notes, the protesters were quite excited UFO sightings and "climbs a tree to get a better look at the mysterious object."
In another British newspaper — The Daily Mail — also suspected that flew over the Swamp area newcomers. As in other cases, when it was possible to videotape alien craft, quality driven record leaves much to be desired, so that the object is not easy to recognize, the newspaper said.
«NASA recently admitted that there is a high probability that the aliens are watching our civilization by such devices … very high chances that the site of the Marsh area — one of these devices — and the aliens are interested in our political life" — said the publication of paranormal investigator Michael Cohen.
A little more farsighted were Americans. The well-known journalist and radio host Alex Jones on Infowars.com site notes that an unidentified flying object — a "drone."
"This thing is quite clear — something like a small quadrocopter. These "drones" can be controlled by iPhone, iPad, laptop at a distance of three kilometers. It can transmit video in real time over the Wi-Fi », — says Alex Jones.
Being more skeptical than the British counterparts, the American journalist, however, not able to understand, "whose side" was a UFO: "They (quadrocopter) also have a tracking system, and some may even beat electricity and paralyze the protesters. Or "suspected", "rebels" — depending on how you want to call people who are fighting for their rights. But, of course, is Russia. In the U.S., "drones" will never be used against members of the crowd, is not it, eh? .. "
The truth was much more prosaic. On the day of the rally on Bolotnaya Square flew "drone" activists "Ridusa", which got the opportunity, unlike other photographers to photograph most of the 25000th crowd of protesters. By the way, these pictures were then circulated through the agency, including Reuters, whose image acquired newspaper The Daily Mail. Link appearance in Moscow sky "UFO" and these pictures journalists apparently failed.
As for the "UFO", the initiative taken belonged to the photographer Dmitry Chistoprudovu and expert on radio-controlled model Stanislav Sedov.
"We arrived two hours before the start. Freely passed on the marsh, chose the place start. Climb into the very "thick" desire was not, stood next to a bridge over the bypass channel. Our basic principle — never to fly over people — was 100% complete. In this case, up to the stage a rally was not very far away, "- writes online AirPano Sedov.
"I do not like only one — launched missiles in geksakopter. It is good that nothing happened, but the missile flew close, and it was unpleasant, "- writes in his blog Chistoprudov.
