On the 50th anniversary of Moon landing, it is interesting to note that an overwhelming majority of Russians believe in hoax conspiracy theories, no matter how kooky, rather than admitting that Americans actually landed there. National pride can be an ugly, ugly thing.
According to a poll done last week by Russian state pollster VTsIOM, 57% of Russians believe the landing was faked. Only 24% believe the Americans actually went to the Moon.
Soviet cosmonaut Leonov said he watched Americans land & was extremely happy when Armstrong took the 1st step. Most Russians don't believe him, however. Pseudo-scientific "proofs" of the landing's being a fake are extremely popular, especially the fake Stanley Kubrick "interview"
