[i]Since the 1960s critical analysis of the recordings has cast doubt on their provenance. For instance, audio transcripts reveal that all the cosmonauts, who were supposed to be Soviet air force pilots did not follow standard communication protocols, such as identifying themselves when speaking or using the correct technical terminology.
Likewise all the recordings contain disjointed sentences and grammatical errors that would have not been made by well-educated, Russian native speakers in the Soviet space program.
Secondly, some of their transcripts purport cosmonauts to leave Earth orbit and head into interplanetary or "deep" space. Earth orbit escape velocity is 40,320 kph, far greater than orbital velocity (28,160 kph) and no secondary propulsion stage or burn accompanies these accounts nor is seen in Vostok era designs.[/i]
