Approved For ReleassIR military superiors ordered'its employees to consider the explosion a thermal one and to sign a promise not to disclose the "offi- cial secret." 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 and training 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-Z2 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 processed. Local officials think that a large-scale clean-up program is needed. I. Grishan, chairman of the Shkotovo-22 set- tlement Soviet, has asked that the settle- ment be officially designated an accident- stricken population center, which would make it eligible for additional financial assistance, (SNAP 911125) Author: Tsarev, I. Title: SPECIALIST'S SUGGESTIONS FOR COM- BATING PHOBIA OVE PONS" Primary Source: rcr , e a e,^ 1991, No. 25E (21476), p. 4, cots. 5-7 Approved For Release Extract: "It would be tempting to turn psychological weapons against One's own people and make millions of them forget about discontent with the system of social inequality, about the struggle for peace and about their civil rights. Oppressed but joyful, fleeced by monopolies but con- tent with everything .,.. Wouldn't this be the ideal citizen from the point of view of the'ruling circles in countries of the West?" This what newspapers of ours wrote quite recently about "MK-Ultra," an ultra- secret program of American intelligence which was aimed at turning people into zom- bies,en masse. But we now Know that we ourselves have not escaped such brainwash- ing. Stories about design bureaus at which instruments have been developed for produc- ing long-distance effects on the human mind have begun to appear in the press.* Among the mall that we receive from our readers has been a trickle of letters which mention "individual brainwashing" by mysterious psychological weapons. Vladimir Nikitovich Volchenko is a professor of the Moscow State Technical University imeni Bauman and deputy chairman of the USSR Union of Scientific and Engin- eering Societies' Committee on Bioenergy Information Processing (Bioenergoinformati- ka).,' He took part in preparing materials on the question of protecting citizens against psychological terror, for the RSFSR Supreme Soviet. . "For such cases to become fewer, peo- ple must first be rescued from psychologi- cal terror which is now occurring," said V. Volchenko. "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 psychotherapist followers who have been giving similar performances. The trouble is not even that many of these 'therapists' are elementary acquisitors who are out to make easy money in a hurry. This is a topic for a separate conversa- tion. The danger lies elsewhere. Mass sessions of this kind have a substantial 1N 21 0112 2i 95:0T 2E, 9Z dd Approved For Release 209. impact on the hypnotizability of millions of televiewers, the sessions heighten it. And this means that the viewers stand a greater chance of being turned into zom- bies. "The runaway UFO psychosis spawned by television Is another example. From let- ters and in the course of personal conver- sations, my colleagues on the 'Bioenergoin- formatika' committee and I have established numerous cases of psychosis on topics of contacts with unidentified flying objects. This is very dangerous!" "Is there a way of preventing mass creation of zombies?" "Of course, and it is known to the whole world. It consists primarily in ac- cepting a new thinking model which involves human spirituality. It must never be for- gotten that for humanity, the optimal order of tasks which are accomplished proceeds from morality and ecology to economics and politics. In our country, it is just the other way around at present: politics--eco- nomics--ecology--morality. Do you think that we can enter the future with the cart before the horse?" 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 probably one of the most potent varieties of such weapons. But information about the exis- tence also of technical "psi" weapons has been confirmed at the same time. The edi- tors have received a report about a discov- ery and an invention called "A Method of Inducing Artificial Sleep at a Distance by Means of Radio Waves" (re istered by the State Committee on Inventions and Discover- les on January 31, 1974). To the best of our knowledge, a hypnotic radiator has been built and has been successfully tested in a military unit. ee a sa e Oat y A , October 18, 1991, F6-00792R000600450008-5 (SNAP 911125) Title; R.
