end of last year, after former US President Donald Trump approved a request for an investigation by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, a report on the results of an investigation by US intelligence agencies that had been ongoing for more than half a year was released.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has used the term 'UAP', an unidentified aerial phenomenon, instead of the term UFO in this report.

From 2004 to this year, a total of 144 unidentified aerial phenomena were observed from military aircraft.

The investigative authorities took a position that 'cannot be accurately explained,' except for one case that turned out to be a large balloon.

The U.S. authorities classified the unidentified aviation phenomenon into five categories, among which the 'system of foreign hostile forces' is considered to be a phenomenon related to new technologies such as China and Russia in mind.

However, it is also evaluated that this report is not enough to resolve the curiosity, and it can fuel the UFO conspiracy theory even more.
