Psychotronic weaponry is probably one of the least known and little understood fields in military research, as it is truly something which one would relegate to the realm of science fiction if they were not aware of the facts behind it.
In fact, it is so poorly understood that even some journalists like Sam Biddle of Gizmodo and the Australian Herald Sun show a disturbing amount of ignorance on the subject.
Biddle seems to get confused by the fact that these weapons reportedly have the capability to create physiological sensations like burning (like the American Active Denial System, also known as a “heat ray” or “microwave gun,” which utilizes super high frequencies).
Biddle exposes his ignorance by conflating the super high frequency (SHF) used by the Active Denial System (ADS) with the low-frequency waves used by psychotronic weapons.
I consider this somewhat like thinking a flame thrower and a .22 rifle are the same because they can both injure and kill people.
Both types of weapons use invisible waves and are far from conventional weapons, but that is just about where the similarities end.
These weapons, which were confirmed by none other than Vladimir Putin, Russian President Elect, according to the Herald Sun, reportedly attack the central nervous system.
Here is another instance of Biddle being completely confused by this technology, which is a bit surprising and disconcerting seeing as he works for a technology blog.
The ADS activates the water molecules on the skin like a microwave, thus creating the sensation of heat. However, if reports are correct, the Russian weapon targets the central nervous system, which is an entirely different mechanism.
While they both obviously use electromagnetic radiation, one targets the water in epidermal cells while the other reportedly goes straight to the target’s central nervous system (how exactly this is done is unclear at this point).
In fact, these weapons are far from new, as Nick Begich heavily documents in his book Earth Rising: The Revolution, Toward a Thousand Years of Peace.
Thankfully, the Herald Sun points this out in writing, “Research into electromagnetic weapons has been carried out in the US and Russia since the ’50s.”
It was reported that the plans to introduce the so-called super-weapons were announced by Anatoly Serdyukov, the Russian Defense Minister.
However, I have been unable to find media reports confirming this statement, other than the report which has been copied word-for-word across the internet, including the Herald Sun and News.com.au.
There also seems to be confusion about where some of the quotes originated, as the article which has been so widely published attributes a quote to a “Mr Tsyganok” who is never properly identified.
“When it was used for dispersing a crowd and it was focused on a man, his body temperature went up immediately as if he was thrown into a hot frying pan,” they claim he said.
I believe that the “Mr Tsyganok” they cite is actually Anatoly Tsyganok, the head of the Military ForecastingCenter in Moscow.
The full quote, according to the British Daily Mail, is, “When it was used for dispersing a crowd and it was focused on a man, his body temperature went up immediately as if he was thrown into a hot frying pan. Still, we know very little about this weapon and even special forces guys can hardly cope with it.”
Unnamed sources claim that Putin described the weapons as “entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals.”
Another quite damning quote, allegedly from Putin (which, I honestly doubt is accurate since saying such a thing would be quite damaging), reads, “Such high-tech weapons systems will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons, but will be more acceptable in terms of political and military ideology.”
It’s hardly politically savvy to compare a weapon to nuclear weapons then say that it is acceptable for use. In fact, even mentioning that your country has such capabilities would be far from intelligent from a political standpoint.
“This is a serious weapon,” Tsyganok added, reinforcing the fact that it makes no sense for the Russians to publicly promote such a weapon, unless they were doing so as a deterrent of some kind.
The problem I see with this entire story is that the Daily Mail and others have used it as a chance to claim that Putin would use it against Russian dissidents, even though there is absolutely nothing to back up the claims.
The Daily Mail’s headline, “Putin targets foes with ‘zombie’ gun which attack victims’ central nervous system” emphasizes just that.
Furthermore, it is worth pointing out that the Russian Ministry of Defense refused to comment on the matter, which makes little sense if Serdyukov indeed announced that they were planning to introduce the weapons.
However, there are indeed bits of information indicating that Russia is already using the weaponry. Aside from the many pieces of information which point to Russian research in the area going back decades, which Begich and others have thoroughly documented, the case of Sergei Serykh indicates that they may be in use already.
Sergei or Serguei Serykh was a Russian asylum seeker in the United Kingdom, along with his wife Tatiana and his stepson.
All three of them died, allegedly by committing suicide, on March 7, 2010 when they fell from the Red Road flats in Glasgow, Scotland.
There are conflicting reports that Serykh was a former agent of the FSB, also known as the KGB, while others say he was with Russia’s foreign intelligence agency, the GRU.
The Daily Mail claims that he spoke of a psychotronic weapons program to the MI6, although I cannot locate any corroborating reports.
Furthermore, they claim that he said he was a victim of these weapons, which he said were “many times more powerful than in the Matrix films.”
Once again, all I can find are copies of the article, not other reports which back this purported quote up.
The case of Serykh is quite mysterious, but what is certain is that this weaponry has been in development for a long time and it would be foolish to think that the Russians were not actively pursuing this route.
However, I seriously doubt that Putin or other Russian politicians would want to expose such a thing to the international press, especially at a time when the West seems increasingly antagonistic towards the former Soviet state.

RUSSIANS DEVELOPING MIND-ALTERING ELECTROMAGNETIC “ZOMBIE” GUN
Australia news outlet the Herald Sun recently reported that current Russian Prime Minister and President-elect, Vladimir Putin, has confirmed that the Russian military is indeed working on a mind-altering “psychotronic” gun. The concentrated energy gun would be capable of attacking the central nervous system of its targets — inflicting varying levels of pain, and essentially turning enemies into “zombies.”
The weapon – which sounds like something from a campy 1970’s science fiction flick – is said to use electromagnetic radiation, and was first announced by Russian defense minister Anatoly Serdyukov. According to Russian officials, the weapon was developed as means to strategically control and disperse unruly crowds in a non-lethal manner.
Russian officials have likened the experience to being thrown into a “hot frying pan,” citing the gun’s ability to greatly alter the body temperature of its intended targets. And according to Mr.Putin, because of the energy weapon’s perceived effectiveness it will allow for a new and efficient means of achieving political and strategic goals.
Of course mind-controlling, non-lethal crowd control weapons aren’t exactly new. Both the United States and Russia are said to have been developing them since the 1950’s. The United States has also been working on a similar type of weapon called the Active Denial System (ADS), which is capable of directing concentrated 95 gigahertz electromagnetic beams at its targets, and stopping them in their tracks by elevating body temperature to unbearable levels.
Making your targets cook from the inside like a microwave isn’t the only perceived benefit, though. Over time, research surrounding low-frequency electromagnetic waves has suggested that it could affect brain cells and potentially alter thought – turning targets into real-life zombies. Indeed, one could argue that TVs have been doing this for decades.
Could this increased focus on developing the ultimate “psychotronic” weapon prove analogous to the frightening nuclear arms race experienced during the Cold War? Not likely. But that hasn’t stopped Mr. Putin from making some parallels. According to the Herald Sun, Putin stated, “…the technology is comparable in effects to nuclear weapons but more acceptable in terms of political and military ideology.” Despite Mr. Putin’s convictions, we’re not quite sure how utilizing electromagnetic radiation can be deemed as “acceptable.” Regardless, from a political, military, and law enforcing perspective, the application of this technology in its final form could prove invaluable — especially in contested political climates.
While we know the United State’s ADS is real, other than what Russian officials have released to the press we don’t know if the Kremlin’s “zombie gun” actually exists (Russian officials claim they have already tested it), or if this all political posturing coming out of Moscow. But according to the Herald Sun, Defense minister Serdyukov said the weaponry based on new physics principles — direct-energy weapons, geophysical weapons, wave-energy weapons, genetic weapons and psychotronic weapons — were part of the state arms procurement program for 2011-2020. In other words: if it doesn’t fully exist now, it won’t be long before it does.
It might be time to start making those tin-foil hats again.
