Interest in the topic of the influence of magicians and psychics on the first persons of the Soviet Union, and then Russia, has not weakened for many years. At different times, the names of people with unusual capabilities were associated with the names of the country's leaders: Joseph Stalin and Wolf Messing, Leonid Brezhnev and Juna, Boris Yeltsin and General Rogozin. Is it true that the party elite resorted to the services of clairvoyants, and the Kremlin's Nostradamus defended the first persons?
Joseph Stalin and Wolf Messing
There were many legends about the relationship between Joseph Stalin and Wolf Messing. The memoirs of the famous telepath, recorded by journalist Mikhail Khvastunov, described checks allegedly arranged by the leader. However, with a sober assessment and detailed verification, it turned out that Wolf Messing did not even meet with Stalin. His name does not appear in any of the Kremlin's visitor registers. The prophecies attributed to the famous artist and hypnotist about the end of the Great Patriotic War and the date of the death of the father of all nations also raise doubts.
However, there is no reason to doubt Wolf Messing's acting talent and his ability to impress the viewer. If we discard all the myths, legends and conjectures that surrounded the talented mentalist, then there is a pure remnant of his gift to notice the smallest movements of a person's muscles, on the basis of which Messing read his intentions. He was a subtle psychologist and even knew how to present his own defeats in such a way that the audience remained fully confident in his unique abilities of foresight and ability to read minds. Naturally, Wolf Messing had no influence on Stalin.

Leonid Brezhnev and Juna Davitashvili
She was a member of the offices of high party officials of the USSR, and her phenomenon was studied by numerous commissions and clinics. Dzhuna Davitashvili was said to be able to heal the most hopeless patient. It was she who was credited with extending the life of Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev. Not only Brezhnev was on the list of her patients.
Pope and Marcello Mastroianni, Andrei Tarkovsky and Arkady Raikin, Vladimir Vysotsky, Robert Rozhdestvensky, Joseph Kobzon were among those who turned to the healer and clairvoyant for help. Juna herself was very restrained in assessing her abilities. She really visited the Kremlin, the memoirs of the Secretary General's contemporaries speak about this and the facts are quite verifiable. The protocols of experiments conducted with the participation of Juna have been preserved, and she was given a long-term lease of a mansion in which she received patients. Dzhuna Davitashvili had 20 patents for inventions of special medical devices.
When she was asked about the possibility of healing people with the power of thought, she wondered if the questioner had returned to the Stone Age. The healer openly admitted that the physiotherapeutic effect of non-contact massage was achieved by a combination of different types of radiation. It was this property that the healer used later in devices, where three types of waves were used at once: infrared, high-frequency waves and an alternating electric field.
Did she really treat Leonid Brezhnev? There are facts confirming the patronage of the Secretary General, but there is no information that she was directly involved in his treatment.

Boris Yeltsin and Georgy Rogozin
In the 1990s, a stream of new magicians and psychics poured onto television. Each of them convinced the viewer of their superpowers. Chumak on the other side of the screens broadcast about the miraculous properties of the water charged by him, Kashpirovsky healed the whole country and performed operations without anesthesia on the air.
During the reign of Boris Yeltsin, the name of Georgy Rogozin became quite famous. Major General of the FSB served as the first deputy chief of the Security Service of the President of Russia. They called him Nostradamus in uniform and the Kremlin Merlin. There were persistent rumors that Boris Yeltsin verifies all his actions with astrologers and psychics, and they, in turn, protect him from external unwanted influences.
Journalists gladly picked up the speculative topic, and articles about psychotropic emitters, the power of psychics' influence on the ruling elite and foreign policy were constantly published and popular. However, it is worth turning to the primary source in order to extract a rational grain from the array of not always reliable information.
Georgy Rogozin himself, who gained fame as a Kremlin magician, was an educated man, had the title of candidate of legal sciences. After retirement, he became a member of the public organization "Russian Academy of Natural Sciences", led a workshop for the compilation of psychological portraits of the individual.
Talking about his passion for psychotronics, General Rogozin said that at first all the main work on the study of human superpowers was carried out without much publicity. The experience of Western universities and special services was studied, their own experiments were carried out and on their basis practical experience was accumulated.
Like their Western colleagues, the Russian special services were actively working on the problems of remote control of a person, studying paranormal phenomena, and developing programs to influence the behavior of large groups of people.
The presence of a certain gift and the ability to predict the situation in order to prevent negative consequences from General Rogozin could not be taken away. The biggest achievement of the Kremlin Merlin is still called the prevention of Boris Yeltsin's visit to Japan. Not only in Russia, but all over the world, they were sure: during the visit, Yeltsin would transfer the rights to the Kuril Islands to Japan. However, the Kurils still belong to Russia.
After the collapse of the USSR, in the vastness of the "great and mighty", all sorts of psychics and sorcerers gained immense popularity. One of them was the sorcerer Yuri Longo, who conquered millions with just one look of his dark brown eyes. His whole life is a mystery, and they still argue about the causes of this man's death.
