THE PROGRAM BEGINS WITH THE PRESENTER NOTING THAT APPARENTLY A PROGRAM FOR IMPLEMENTING METHODS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCE WAS SUBMITTED TO THEN PRIME MINISTER RYZHKOV IN 1987. THERE WERE PLANS TO USE PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCE FOR MILITARY AND ECONOMIC PURPOSES. THE PROGRAMME GOES ON TO DEAL WITH THE METHODS OF INFLUENCING PEOPLE'S PHYSICAL AND MENTAL CONDITION, AND EXERTING INFLUENCE ON THEIR DECISIONS. AN UNIDENTIFIED MAN COMMENTS ON THE WORK WHICH WAS CARRIED OUT TO IMPLEMENT THIS PROGRAM. HE SAYS THAT A COMMISSION, CONSISTING OF 20 PEOPLE, WAS SET UP. THERE WERE SIX ACADEMICIANS AMONG THEM AND A SCIENTIFIC COUNCIL, LED BY ACADEMICIAN KOTELNIKOV, Approved For Release 2000/08/11: CIA-RDP96-00792ROO0500680011-7 Approved For Release M T/I1ID CIA-RDP96-00792R000500680011-7 WAS ALSO SET UP.

THERE WERE SIMILAR PROGRAMS IN UKRAINE, LED BY ACADEMICIAN TRIFILOV, AND IN MOSCOW LED BY DR ERNEST ANDRIANKIN. THE SPEAKER SAYS ANDRIANKIN WAS THE HEAD OF A DEPARTMENT DEALING WITH THEORETICAL PROBLEMS CONNECTED WITH DESIGNING LOGICAL LANGUAGES FOR PROPAGANDA PURPOSES, AND HE RESEARCHED A PROGRAM FOR EXERTING PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCE ON THE ENEMY IN AFGHANISTAN. ANOTHER UNIDENTIFIED MAN SAYS THAT HIS THEORY HAS ALWAYS BEEN THAT IT IS BETTER TO EXERT PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCE THAN TO SHOOT. THE PROGRAM GOES ON TO DESCRIBE OTHER RESEARCH PROGRAMS WHICH HAVE EXISTED AND STILL EXIST. THE PRESENTER DWELLS ON TILE DANGER OF THESE RESEARCH PROGRAMS ENDING UP IN THE HANDS OF THE WRONG PEOPLE. DOCTOR OF TECHNOLOGY VALERIY KANYUKA, THE FIRST INTERVIEWEE IDENTIFIED BY CAPTION, EMPHASIZES THAT ONE MUST BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THESE RESEARCH PROGRAMS. "UNTIL THE WORLD'S STATES REACH SOME AGREEMENT, UNTIL AN INTERNATIONAL LEGISLATION BANNING PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL STEERING OF INTELLECT AND INFLUENCING PEOPLE, A MORATORIUM ON THIS GROUND WORK IS NEEDED," HE SAYS. "INSTEAD OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WE WILL GET A NEW FORM OF WEAPONS, A MORE FRIGHTENING ONE, ONE WHICH HAS A FRIGHTENING NAME -- IT IS CALLED ECOLOGICALLY PURE WEAPONS". KANYUK THEN SAYS THAT INFLUENCING THE HUMAN BRAIN, AND SUBSEQUENTLY GENETICS, COULD BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. HE THEN RECALLS CASES OF USING DRUGS FOR POLITICAL MOTIVES.

A month after the accident, a commission was set up under Rear Admiral A. G. Kurik to Investigate the incident and organize clean-up operations. Minoborony subsequently drafted and approved a whole plan of design, technical mea- sures aimed at making nuclear submarines safer to operate, repair and maintain. In particular, this plan forbade repair work to be done on submarines while they were afloat, and it called for special reactor- rechargin zones to be created at mainten- ance facilities. No such zone was created at the Shkotovo-22 plant, however, owing to insufficient funds. Citizens of Shkotovo-22 are said to be concerned over lingering radioactivity in the area of the plant. There have been calls for more thorough monitoring of local radiation conditions, more careful medical monitoring of persons who were exposed to radiation, stricter measures to prevent the spread of radiocontamination from the fall- out zone and waste burial places, and allo- cations for financing such undertakings. Radioactivity reportedly has spread already to nearby Konyushkovo Bay and also to Abrek and Razboynik bays. The author mentions that specialists of the Taiga Geological Association in Khabarovsk recently conduct- ed a detailed Independent radiological ex- amination of the plant and the settlement, and results of this survey are now being )rocessed. Local officials think that a large-scale clean-up program is needed. I. 3rishan, chairman of the Shkotovo-22 set- tlement Soviet, has asked that the settle- nent be officially designated an accident- stricken population center, which would nake it eligible for additional financial assistance.

"The term 'psychological ter- ror' refers to factors which adversely af- fect human consciousness. Politics and ideology are not the only ones which should be mentioned. Among the rest are hypnosis shows at stadiums and on television. After the trailblazer, psychotherapist A. Kash- pirovskiy, came hundreds of his followers who have been giving similar performances.

From the editors: Specialists have acknowledged that psychological weapons exist. And the information media, which have long been a tool for ideological brainwashing of the masses, are probabl one of the most potent varieties of suc~ weapons.

I cannot assert that it was Kiev generators which were used during the putsch. For such a statement to be made, the generators' specifications would have to be known.

Title: SCIENTISTS DIVIDED aVER_VALIDITY OF PSYCHOL0NNE_-_MP73 R Primary Source: Komsomolskaya pravda, Sep- tember 27, 1991, No. 222 (20222), p. 2, cols. 2-4 Abstract: The article reports on contro- versy over research of unconventional phys- ical fields and military applications of this work. Some scientists are said to be- lieve that 'psychotronic generators' based on new physical principles can be used for remote control of people's minds and behav- ior, and that original weapons for this purpose can be developed on the basis of generators of "spinor (torsion)" or "micro- lepton" fields, in particular. Other sci- entists are highly skeptical of such re- search. It is recalled that a resolution enti- tled "On the Unsound Practice of Financing Pseudoscientific Research out of State Sources" was published, together with an opinion submitted by the USSR Academy of Sciences' department of general physics and astronomy, on July 4 of this year-. The USSR Supreme Soviet's Committee on Science and Technologies issued this resolution. It accused several ministries of spending, without a proper expert review, half a bil- lion rubles on pseudoscientific and anti- scientifid developments involving spinor or microlepton fields with which scientists are already familiar. The resolution named the USSR Ministry of Defense (Minoborony), the USSR Ministry of Nuclear Power Engi- neering and Industry, the USSR State Secur- ity Committee (KGB) and the USSR Cabinet of Ministers' Military-Industrial Commission as clients and sponsors of this work. More than 20 institutes were identified as exec- utors and developers. First on this list was the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences' In- "'RE -RDP96-00792R00050068 1 '7' 21 OTTZ a 9T:TT 26. 9T a 9a- Approved For Releas titute of Materials-Science Problems,, hicli is headed by academician Trefilov. he interagency scientific-technical center Vent" (formerly the Center for Unconven- lanai Technologies of the USSR State Com- Ittee for Science and Technology) was dentified as the country's "chief" firm' .ngaged in developments in the area of un- :onventional fields. According to unveri- 'ied data from A. Akimov, director of this :enter, the cost of unconventional-field projects has been 23 million rubles in Min- ~borony's sector alone, while the overall tmount which has been allocated for such esearch through all of the different chan- els is as great as 500 million rubles. Seeking more information about uncon- entional-fields research and the purposes f this research, the author spoke to an ssociate of the USSR Supreme Soviet's Com- ittee on Science and Technologies and sub- equently went to the armed forces' General taff. He was told that the committee had eceived no information in this regard from inoborony, the KGB or other agencies in- olved. Representatives of the General taff referred the author to the USSR Acad- my of Sciences' Section on Problems of Ap- lied Science. Nikolay Prudnikov, deputy hairman of this section, said that it Ometimes orders projects to be carried out r the General Staff, but he disclosed no etails of this work. one such project, hich was called "Obezlichiye" (de-indivi.d- Oization), is mentioned. It is recalled at in 1966, a scientific research insti- ate informed the academy's section that le institute was prepared to carry out Buis project. An associate of the section ho knew more about the project was not vailable for questioning, however. At the lent" center, the author was told that di actor Akimov was away on a business trip.- Ye. Aleksandrov, corresponding member F the USSR Academy of Sciences and a sci- itific opponent of Akimov's, sent the au- ior a report of the Center for Unconven- onal Technologies. According to this Approved For Release T'd ?'pa!r`kls' dilr'i -RDP96-00792R000500680011-7 document, the center is engaged in research of long-distance production of medical-bio- logical and psychophysical effects on troops and the population, using torsion radiations; and also in research of medi- cal-biological protection of troops and the population against effects of such radia- tions. Aleksandrov expressed doubt that equipment capable of producing such effects can be developed. A letter which the edi- tors received from Aleksandrov is quoted, in which the'scientist denounced research of unconventional fields as pseudoscien- tific, citing a decision of the academy's department of general physics and astrono- my. Aleksandrov went so far as to accuse state enterprises of producing fake "field generators" and selling them to defense agencies for large sums. Scientists who hold opposing views of unconventional-fields research reportedly include V. Kaznacheyev, who is believed to be working in this direction for the de- fense complex and has signed an interna- tional convention on the non-use of "mental weapons"; A. Veynik, corresponding member of the Belorussian Academy of Sciences, who has put forward a number of theories; and other academy figures, who have published works abroad. The author suggests that the Academy of Sciences organize a roundtable discussion on the topic of psychological weapons, with all sides In the controversy represented.

"Pro- yektstroynauka" is characterized as a high- potential organization which is launching production on the basis of its own scien- tific developments. This association, which has an annual turnover of millions of rubles, takes in several joint-stock compa- nies and small enterprises. A conversation is recorded with Colo- nel of the Reserves Dmitriy Arkadyevich Frumin, a former military construction spe- cialist and now head of the "Proyektstroy- nauka" association. Frumin and colonels of the reserves V. Kostin, A. Sytnik and N. Marichev are among a number of engineers who acquired unique experience in construc- tion of fortifications, missile silos and structures of space-launch complexes while serving in the armed forces, the author relates. For example, concrete capable of withstanding a direct hit by a missile with a nuclear warhead was developed, using high-quality cement and scarce superplasti- cizers. Frumin recalled that while carry- ing out a contract assignment at Kapustin Yar in 1962, he and his associates achieved waterproofness of concrete which was two to three times as high as usual. Experience of former military specialists reportedly has been utilized in building underground structures for civil defense and watertight structures for underground services, in particular. A new process which makes sealing of joints unnecessary, permanent forms which function simultaneously as fac- ing and wet sealing, concrete ten times as waterproof as conventional concrete, and other materials with special properties have been developed in this connection. Frumin showed the author of the arti- cle slabs of siligran, a concrete which is not only comparatively inexpensive but said to be capable of withstanding stresses as great as those for whi=ch missile silos are designed. Siligran is considered a possi- ble safe substitute for asbestos cement whose use is forbidden in many countries. Other potentially profitable developments of "Proyektstroynauka" include unique pro- cesses for producing building materials, and equipment for these processes. The association reportedly has concluded 20 agreements for creation of joint enter- prises and facilities, including a Soviet- Bulgarian enterprise, for production of finished products.

This effect consists essen- tially of excitation, in cerebral fluid, of acoustic vibrations which reach auditory nerves. These vibrations are excited by pulsed microwave radiation. Shchelkunov did not attempt to carry out his discovery in practice, but he considers it quite fea- sible from the technical standpoint. In a scrapbook which I leafed through, there was a short clipping which read: "I, Ivan Sergeyevich Kachalin, and (the name of another inventor followed) made a discov- ery, 'A Method of Inducing Artificial Sleep at a Distance by.Means of Radio Waves,' in the Soviet Union:*- General-Colonel of Avi- ation Vladimir Nikitovich Abramov. rendered practical assistance in formalizing this discovery.

In 1973, the first 'Radioson' (radiosleep) unit was developed at military unit 71592 of the city of Novosibirsk and preliminary trials were conducted ...." This report bears the seal of an aca- demic institute and signatures, including those of academician Yu. Kobzarev and Doc- tor of Sciences E. Godik. And, by the way, the block diagram of the "Radioson" unit includes the same microwave generator whose pulses, according to G. Shchelkunov, can also evoke acoustic vibrations in the brain. We were able to meet with a second in- ventor. Ivan Antonovich (he requested that his last name not be used), an associate of an institute of the USSR Academy of Scienc- es, said: "Yes, we have developed the 'Radioson' unit and have conducted not just one, but several successful tests both on ourselves and on volunteer soldiers. But prolonged correspondence with the Committee on Inven- tions and Discoveries didn't produce any results. They deferred consideration of our claim, which was registered as early as 1974, under a totally unconvincing pre- text." "Perhaps, because such devices already existed?"
