Was it a Russian spacecraft that fell in Roswell?

Only if they didn't tell anyone about less successful attempts to launch satellites before Sputnik 1.

No, it was a radar reflector. Operation Mogul. Classified at the time.

It could have been a Russian plane. But I think it most likely was a Project Mogel balloon designed to spy on the Russian nuclear weapons tests. I see no evidence that it was alien.

First, there was no "Russian spacecraft" back then. Even if there were from that area of the world, they would have been "Soviet spacecraft", as there was no "Russia" from 1918 to 1989.
What it was has been unproved. When I asked a good friend of mine decades ago what he thought, he replied he was restricted from telling. And he would know, since he wrote an analysis on aliens for the US government's "Majestic 12" paper in the 1950s. He was a respected aerospace researcher, got the first aeronautical engineering degree ever given by Caltech. Besides Arthur C. Clarke, noted author, James was first to predict space satellites launched by rockets, a decade before the USSR did it. He had an opinion about TV cameras in space covering the whole Earth in North-South sweeps.

Nah. It wasn't Russian. It wasn't even a spacecraft. It was balloon experiment that went wrong.

A decade before sputnik? Why wouldn't they claim that? It would have been massive to be that far ahead of the us in the space race

Either that or a balloon. Does it matter after all this time? Plenty of other aircraft have fallen from the sky Why get fixated on some non-event in a small town in redneck country?

It was a Pepelats from the plant Pluke that crashed on Earth when its Gravitsapa run out of Luts.
