In 1961, the KGB launched Project ISIS, a top-secret program designed to obtain alien technology. It culminated with the discovery of a 13,000 year-old alien body inside a tomb in the Giza Plateau in Egypt.
In the early years of the Cold War, Russian military officials feared the United States had gained a tactical advantage through reverse-engineering alien technology, presumably by studying UFOs such as the one that crashed near Roswell. Determined to possess advanced technology themselves, the Russians used their intelligence services to locate several places where extraterrestrial artifacts might be found.
As the story goes, two Bedouins accidentally stumbled upon the ancient resting place of an alien visitor. Immediately after entering the tomb, the two men fell ill and were hospitalized. Before they succumbed to the mysterious illness, they were able to give details about the tomb’s whereabouts.
The Egyptian authorities traded this information with their Russian allies, who wanted to reach the Tomb of the Visitor God before the CIA found out about it. As a result, they quickly organized a Project ISIS expedition. A group of Soviet Egyptologists, scientists and military personnel were assisted by their Egyptian counterparts in locating the tomb. This information is verified by Russian scientist Viktor Ivanvich, who had access to classified KGB documents:
There is no doubt that a small group of Russian scientists with military experts have discovered a tomb in Egypt in 1961. But in the documents it has never been revealed exactly what was found inside the sarcophagus. Only sources of the highest ranks of the KGB know that we have found the remains of an alien creature that died in Egypt 10,000 before Christ.”
The Russian-Egyptian expedition managed to uncover the tomb and reportedly secured numerous artifacts. According to a report to a senior officer of the KGB, 15 boxes of artifacts were taken from the Tomb of the Visitor God.
Hieroglyphic inscriptions were copied and translated. Among the inscriptions was a prophecy foretelling about the return of a winged alien god. The report also mentions the presence of a protective barrier:
During the inspection of the walls we noticed a strange repulsive force coming out of the walls. We could not find any scientific explanation.”
