NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tell people you’ve seen a UFO and they’ll think you’re a nut. That, or you’ll be elected president.

Last week, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, governor of Russia’s Buddhist republic, Kalmykia, revealed that he was abducted in 1997 from his Moscow apartment by aliens in yellow uniforms who took him into their spaceship.

But he was hardly laughed out of office.

In fact, Russian officials called for his interrogation, concerned that he may have spilled official secrets to the E.T.s.

AOL Senior Correspondent Buck Wolf says political leaders all over the world have claimed they’ve seen UFOs.

Both Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter allegedly spotted UFOs as governors, and they both went on to the Oval Office. Carter even promised to reveal all secret files on alien encounters but never delivered.

More recently in 2009, Japan’s first lady Miyuki Hatoyama confessed in her memoirs that she’d been abducted by aliens 20 years ago who whisked her off to Venus.
