Medvedev Jokes About Secret Alien Files

"Men in Black" agents K and J may be about to recruit a new Russian assistant: Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Medvedev spoke about top-secret files on aliens that may have landed in Russia.

In footage recorded Friday after a television interview, the former president joked that each Russian leader gets two folders with information about extraterrestrials that visited our planet and stayed here.

Unseen in the footage, he is heard telling a Ren-TV journalist that he could not tell "how many of them are among us because it may cause panic." He said more details could be found in Barry Sonnenfeld's "Men in Black" films.

During his 2008-12 presidency, Medvedev showed a sense of humor slightly more subtle than that of his successor, Vladimir Putin, who has a knack for cunning quips.
