the news we don't want to know...

In view of the unrest that US intelligence services have been actively initiating lately, whether in Central Asia, Transcaucasia or other areas bordering Russia and China, the risk of a biological disaster from multiple secret military biological laboratories deployed by the US in potentially politically and socially unstable regions is objectively increasing.

 

In this regard, the issue of the US preparing a biological time bomb in Kazakhstan has been raised many times before. The growing risk of the Pentagon initiating biological warfare using over 400 US biological laboratories located overseas around the world and the need for a clear response to the risk of worldwide biological disaster from such secret US overseas facilities has been repeatedly pointed out.  After all, these biological laboratories employ some 13,000 “employees” who are busy creating strains of killer pathogens (microbes and viruses) that are resistant to vaccines.

It is no secret nowadays that the US has set up such biological laboratories in 25 countries around the world: in the Middle East, Africa, South-East Asia. Only within the former Soviet Union there are US military biological laboratories in Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Uzbekistan.

The Americans try to deny the military nature of the studies conducted in such laboratories. However, the secrecy that surrounds them is only comparable to that of the most important military facilities. There is no accountability to the local and global public about the “work” being done there. Moreover, no scientific “achievements” have been publicly demonstrated by American biologists over the many years of the existence of such foreign secret laboratories, and the results of their research are not published anywhere in the public domain.  Meanwhile, laboratories are actively collecting information on the gene pool of the populations of countries where such laboratories operate. All this indicates that the Pentagon is undoubtedly preparing to wage a biological war using biological weapons, which the US is building in such biological laboratories. It is well known that the US has already spent over $100bn in recent years developing biological warfare weapons. The US is the only country that still blocks the establishment of a verification mechanism under the 1972 Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction.

However, like Russia’s demands to the West for a clear agreement on universal security measures and on the non-proliferation of NATO to the east, warnings about US readiness to unleash a global biological war have never been heeded in Washington and Western capitals.

With this in mind, one can hardly deny that Russia, like any other country, does not wish to have such weapons near its borders, thus jeopardizing the security of all.

Therefore, in Moscow’s military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine in recent days, getting rid of the numerous US military biological laboratories on the territory of that country is an important point.

On February 24, the British conservative publication THE EXPOSÉ published an article entitled “Is there more to the Ukraine/Russia conflict than meets the eye?” It recognizes that Russia should have conducted the current military operation on the basis of its security interests and confirms that there has long been a very serious threat to the lives and health of the Russian Federation population from the territory of Ukraine. It refers to at least 16 US military biological laboratories located in Odessa, Vinnitsa, Uzhgorod, Lviv (three), Kharkiv, Kiev (also three), Kherson, Ternopil, Dnepropetrovsk, as well as near Luhansk and the border with Crimea. Such “cooperation” between the Pentagon and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health dates back to 2005. Opposition parties managed to push through the Verkhovna Rada in 2013 to end this “cooperation”, but the US-led coup d’état in Kiev in February 2014 prevented the implementation of this decision, resulting in this “cooperation” not only continuing but also actively developing at the initiative of Washington.

Many of the Pentagon’s and White House’s official secrets about US clandestine biological laboratories overseas have been revealed by Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois at Champaign (USA) and author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 (BWATA). As this American scientist points out, “We now have an Offensive Biological Weapons industry in this country that violates the Biological Weapons Convention and my Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989”. According to Boyle, “American universities have a long history of willingly permitting their research agenda …. to be co-opted, corrupted, and perverted by the the Pentagon and the C.I.A. into death science”. He cites as an example the group of Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin, which managed to increase the toxicity of the flu virus by a factor of 200. According to Boyle, the Pentagon and the CIA are “ready, willing and able to launch biowarfare when it suits their interests… They have a stockpile of that super-weapons-grade anthrax that they already used against us in October 2001”.

The threat to people living even at a distance from such laboratories is evidenced by an investigation conducted by USA Today newspaper, which showed that from 2006 to 2013 alone, more than 1,500 accidents and safety violations occurred in 200 military biological laboratories on the territory of the US. So what about possible similar incidents in biological laboratories in Ukraine or other former Soviet republics?

In the summer of 2019, “America’s main biological warfare lab has been ordered to stop all research into the deadliest viruses and pathogens over fears contaminated waste could leak out of the facility,” reported Britain’s The Independent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the public health authority in the US, has revoked the military bioresearch center at Fort Detrick’s license to handle Ebola, smallpox and anthrax after CDC inspectors found “problems with the procedures used to decontaminate wastewater” at Fort Detrick. In this regard, it is notable that the possibility of “deadly viruses and pathogens” leaking into Fort Detrick’s wastewater was detected shortly before the COVID-19 outbreak, which the Americans were quick to blame on China. It is also noteworthy that the Pentagon has significantly stepped up the activities of its overseas biological laboratories since 2019, clearly shifting the “work” on particularly dangerous strains and biological weapons development there.

In these circumstances, the task of terminating the activities of the US secret biological laboratories as part of the demilitarization of that country is justified in the program of Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine.

Against this background, it is noteworthy that the US embassy in Ukraine removed all documents about the biological laboratories in Kiev and Odessa from its official website after Moscow launched its military operation. This further confirms that in addition to the nuclear threat from Zelensky, Russia was also being prepared for bio-extinction behind the ocean. Under these circumstances, the announcement by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) on the US government procurement website last October of an addendum on “combating highly dangerous pathogens” is understandable. This document concerned the $3.6mln finishing work to launch two biological laboratories in Ukraine – in Kiev and Odessa, where machinery, equipment and personnel were already being prepared for the United States to unleash a biological war under the cover of Ukraine.

good vs evil...

 

On Ukraine, Biden’s State of the Union address was just ‘good vs. evil’

 

The US president talked of a feel-good struggle against an “autocratic oppressor” while, in truth, he abandoned it to its fate

 

By Scott Ritter

 

Biden’s simplistic “good versus evil” pronouncements on the Russian-Ukraine conflict did little to prepare America for the consequences of declaring economic warfare against the Russian state.

It wasn’t surprising that Russia’s ongoing military incursion into Ukraine topped the list of issues addressed by US President Joe Biden in his first State of the Union (SOTU) address, delivered on March 1, 2022, to a joint session of Congress. 

Biden pitched the Ukraine crisis as a defining moment in modern history, a problem that could only be resolved with American leadership, both at home and abroad. His job during his address was to convince both domestic and foreign viewers alike that he was the man for the job.

He repeated the time-tested mantra that held that Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, constituted a threat to democratic principles at home and abroad. This was especially true, he said, when it came to Ukraine. 

There was nothing new in what Biden told his audience – the same words and themes had been deployed many times over in the past week. He pushed the same buttons – Putin as the personification of “autocratic oppression,” leading a Russia addicted to power, hell-bent on forcefully absorbing the nation of Ukraine into the Russian orbit.

 

He likewise pulled at the heartstrings of America, talking about Ukraine’s embattled leader, Volodymyr Zelensky, and the heroic resistance of his people in the face of overwhelming Russian power. The United States stood fully behind them, Biden said. This sentiment was shared by many in the audience as the president spoke. They held small Ukrainian flags or wore the nation’s blue-and-yellow colors. But this support, he said, had its limits – the US, he declared, would not send a single soldier to Ukraine to fight for its cause.

The fact was, Biden was abandoning it to its fate. While praising the courage and leadership of the Ukrainian president, he said, “Let me be clear, our forces are not engaged and will not engage in conflict with Russian forces in Ukraine. Our forces are not going to Europe to fight in Ukraine, but to defend our NATO allies in the event that Putin decides to keep moving west.”

There is no evidence that Russia intends to “keep moving west.” And while Biden spoke of the important leadership role played by the US in Europe, the fact remains that Europe is a veritable prisoner to the whims of any US president, whose pronouncements take on the weight of law whenever they are uttered. 

Neither Europe nor the United States, it seemed, would be intervening on behalf of Ukraine against Russia. Zelensky and Ukraine were on their own, their only choice for national relevance being to commit suicide on the international stage while the West, from the safety of their homes and offices, cheered them on like bloodthirsty Romans watching gladiators do battle in the Colosseum.

 

The major takeaway from Biden’s SOTU address? Ukraine will lose this war, and the West will do nothing to stop that fact.

While Biden lionized Ukraine and its beleaguered president, he failed to explain to the American people why there was a war, beyond the sophomoric argument that “Putin did it.” No talk of America’s role in the Maidan back in 2014, no discussion of the role played by Ukrainian right-wing ultra-nationalists in oppressing the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine, no mention of the shelling of the breakaway Donbass region, no discussion of the role that NATO expansion played in creating an untenable security situation for the Russian state. 

Simplistic jingoism plays well in atmospheres such as televised political addresses, where a captive audience is compelled to rise and applaud made-for-TV pronouncements lest they be singled out for public criticism by a fawning, vindictive corporate media. The cheer-fest the SOTU has become would give any Brezhnev-era meeting of the Presidium a run for its money when it comes to mindless standing ovations.

But it was here, in the orgy of self-congratulation that is the interplay between president and Congress where America’s weakness in its conflict with Russia was exposed. As united as everyone seemed to be about sacrificing Ukraine on the altar of Russia-bashing, it was clear Congress was deeply divided from Joe Biden on issues of domestic policy, especially when it came to the economy of the US. While the US president may not want to engage Russia in a shooting war in Europe, he has embarked on a great global crusade to destroy it economically. And the tepid response the political opposition gave to his pronouncements underscores the reality that the US is not prepared for the consequences of his declaration of open economic war with Russia.

Let there be no doubt: Russia will win the shooting war in Ukraine. This outcome is inevitable, given the reality that Ukraine has been abandoned by its erstwhile partners in the West. Yet the conflict between Russia and the West won’t end when the last bomb explodes on Ukrainian soil, but when, in the mindset of the US and its European partners, the Russian economy is destroyed and Putin is humiliated and diminished as a political force, domestically, regionally, and globally.

 

Here, the US president did the American people a great disservice, selling them a feel-good struggle in which Ukraine is promoted as the glorified martyr and Russia demoted as the evil oppressor. A bloodless conflict – from the US perspective, at least – that will be won simply by shutting down the Russian economy by remote control. It won’t be that simple. 

Russia has yet to respond to the US-led economic war being waged against it. When it does, rest assured that these sanctions Congress so enthusiastically applauded will prove to be a double-edged sword – one that will cut into a US economy still reeling from the consequences of the Covid pandemic. When that time comes, President Biden could find that many of those politicians who rose to their feet to cheer on the sacrifice of Ukraine will turn on him.

War, it is said, is but an extension of politics by other means. Given the deep partisan political divide that exists in the US when it comes to the economy, it is clear neither Biden nor the American public is ready for what is about to happen when the consequences of their anti-Russian hysteria finally comes home to roost.

political and media lies...

 

Taking a stance against political lies, 

 

BY Karl-Jürgen Müller

 

The peace researcher Martina Fischer of the church aid organisation “Brot für die Welt” (Bread for the World) has observed that “many political and media discourses present the conflict [between NATO and Russia] in a one-sided way and do not tell the whole story”. In Germany, she says, it is “primarily about the narrative that NATO is in the right and Russia is completely in the wrong”.1 NATO officials call it “strategic communication”. “Strategic communication” is “a set of sign-based and usually media-supported activities by which individuals, groups or organisations seek to maintain or increase acceptance of their political, economic, legal or otherwise motivated interests among selected target groups”. I call it political lying – and it mostly troubles us in our countries in a synchronised manner.

 

The fact that political lies are publicly told in our countries can be observed every day at the moment. In addition, the liars want to be censors at the same time. The German Minister of Education and Research announced on 8 February 2021 that she will spend a lot of money on ten new research projects to fight “disinformation” and “fake news”. The minister wants to “get down to the roots of the ‘fake news’ trouble and advance the fight against disinformation through targeted research funding”.
  The political lie has several variants. They range from the simple misrepresentation of facts to the deliberate omission of important facts and the deliberate misinterpretation of facts up to targeted propaganda.

Five current examples

Here are just five current examples:
  On 10 February 2022, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder commented in a post on Linkedin on an article published in the weekly newspaper Die Zeit, “Nord Stream 2: When the gas man rings twice”(“Nord Stream 2: Wenn der Gasmann zweimal klingelt”). Schröder writes: “In its current issue, Die Zeit sets a total of eleven(!) journalists on the SPD in order to construct, with the greatest investigative power, a ‘network’ that allegedly ‘allowed itself to be seduced by Putin and Russian natural gas’. What is regrettable for the eleven authors is the fact that even the simplest facts in the piece are not correct.” Schröder lists these facts and also the newspaper’s false claims.
  On 24 January 2022, the “German-Russian Forum” organised a discussion on the topic “Warning or all-clear – Russia against NATO? Is there a way out of the crisis?”. One of the panellists was Jürgen Trittin, a Green foreign policy expert and former Federal Environment Minister. One of his statements was: Russia had to accept that there had been a “democratic revolution” in Ukraine, with which the country had decided on a future in the EU. Anyone who has in mind the actual events in the winter of 2013/2014 on the Maidan in Kiev and elsewhere in Ukraine can only be amazed at the interpretive choice of words: “democratic revolution”.
  Since 12 February 2022, many of our media reported that the US government was assuming a Russian invasion of Ukraine on Wednesday 16 February. Wednesday is in the past, there was no invasion. Russia had stated before that Wednesday that no invasion of Ukraine was planned – and continues to do so. Nonetheless, on 17 February, US Secretary of State Blinken took the floor in the United Nations Security Council and spoke again of an imminent attack on Ukraine, saying that Russia was only looking for a pretext: “fabricated provocations”. This time, 20 February was given as the date. On 17 February the British Ministry of Defence even published a map of the Russian attack.
  What our media did not report, however, was that precisely on 17 February, the Russian Foreign Ministry handed over to the US representation its letter of response to the US government’s and NATO’s letters of response to the Russian draft treaties of December 2021. Unsurprisingly, the core of the letter is that Russia considers the negotiation offers of the US and NATO to be completely insufficient so far with regard to Russia’s fundamental security interests.
  At lunchtime on 16 February, Deutschlandfunk interviewed an “expert” from the government-affiliated German Foundation for Science and Politics (Stiftung für Wissenschaft und Politik) on the German Chancellor’s visit to Moscow. The “expert” was very critical of Russia and emphasised several times that after 1990 it had been agreed in the treaty that each OSCE country was free to choose its military alliance. Russia would ignore this. But she underplayed the fact that these OSCE treaties speak of the indivisibility of security in the OSCE area and that no state may “consolidate its security at the expense of the security of other states” – and that this is exactly what Russia is demanding (cf.Current Concerns No. 3/4 of 16 February 2022).
  In his acceptance speech on 13 February 2022, the re-elected German President Steinmeier attacked Russia and its president: “We are in the midst of a military conflict, a war in Eastern Europe. Russia is responsible for this.” […] “I appeal to President Putin: Lift the noose from the neck of Ukraine!” – This is another way to turn reality upside down.

Political lies create a dangerous dynamic

Political lies can create a dangerous dynamic. It ranges from deliberate deception to the creation of political hysteria to strategic self-fulfilling prophecy – you bring something about by lying. Thus, one must assume that those responsible for the current war hysteria in the NATO states want a further deterioration of relations with Russia; for the hysteria is linked to massive – and mendacious – accusations against Russian policy: Russia is the aggressor – and only the NATO states are doing everything to maintain peace. Do they really believe in the NATO headquarters that they can forget the illegal wars of the NATO states of the last 25 years against Yugoslavia, against Afghanistan, against Iraq, against Libya, against Syria and the victims and destruction – for which so far no one of those responsible has been held accountable?
  In the current confrontation between the USA, NATO and the EU on the one hand and Russia on the other, the USA has been claiming for a few weeks – without evidence – that Russia will launch its invasion of Ukraine with a false-flag operation. Could this not also be a specially twisted political lie? Should, for example, the Ukrainian army – similar to the Georgian army in South Ossetia in 2008 – actually attack the Donbass and Russia thereupon militarily assist its approximately 800,000 citizens in the Donbass, Russia’s justification for this assistance is already being dismissed as “disinformation” as a precaution? Therefore, it must indeed be alarming that Russian reports about the shelling of the Donbass by Ukrainian troops have been increasing since 17 February. Is it all just Russian “disinformation” … or an actual provocation planned by a long US hand?

It is about power and power politics

The multitude of possibilities of political lies should not obscure what it is always about: power and power politics. The unscrupulousness of the power centres and the allegiance of the vassals in the process know no moral boundaries. The 19th and 20th centuries have shown that. And the first two decades of the 21st century do not seem to have brought any change either.

Objection is possible. And necessary!

But objection is possible. And necessary!
  Not because it makes it possible to turn the wheel immediately. That would be an illusion. But raising one’s voice for the truth and against lies corresponds to the social nature of human beings. Living together, on which each of us depends, requires trust. When “good faith” no longer applies, togetherness – in the delusion of power – is disturbed and increasingly disrupted. Not only in international relations, but also among the people in our own country.
  Not only we, but also future generations need role models of honesty and sincerity. The powerful lie creates fear and weakens the human being; only with an honest voice the human being can find a spiritual home. Sick minds submit to the principle of power, healthy souls are aligned with the truth. We Germans, of all people, know that the voices of truth were beacons of light in the darkest period of German history, showing us a way as young post-war Germans.

The truth is stronger than the lie

The truth is stronger than the lie. As the saying goes, “Lies soon catch up with one.” Today we know about so many political lies of the past decades. We owe this to people who unswervingly sought the truth and then also expressed it publicly. “Es began mit einer Lüge” (It began with a lie) was the title of a WDR film from the beginning of 2001, about one and a half years after NATO’s war of aggression on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, which violated international law. The lying continued with every further war of the USA and its allies. Courageous people have exposed these lies. Many people are grateful to them for this.

Making public use of one’s reason in all matters

In Immanuel Kant’s prize pamphlet “Answering the Question: What is Enlightenment”, which was first published in 1784 – five years before the French Revolution – there is a statement in the very first part of the text that the public – Kant speaks of the “audience” – can “only slowly acquire enlightenment”. “A revolution may well put an end to autocratic despotism … or power-seeking oppression, but it will never produce a true reform in ways of thinking; instead, new prejudice will replace the old, and become a new leash to control the great unthinking masses.”
  For true enlightenment, says Kant in the following sentence, instead “requires nothing but freedom – and the most innocent of all that may be called ‘freedom’: freedom to make public use of one’s reason in all matters.”

Recognition of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics

At an extraordinary meeting of the National Security Council [on 21 February], the Russian president said the aim of the meeting was to determine further steps on Donbass. The leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics had earlier asked Vladimir Putin to acknowledge the independence of their regions
  Putin said Russia had done everything to resolve the contradictions in the region peacefully, but the situation was not changing for the better. Kiev would not want to comply with the Minsk agreements and had emphasised this several times. If Ukraine was accepted into NATO, the alliance would begin to reconquer Crimea and the threats to Russia would increase many times over, the Russian head of state summed up.
  All members [of the National Security Council] spoke in favour of recognising the two republics. Dmitry Kozak, the Russian president’s advisor at the Normandy format negotiations, emphasised that the negotiation process on the Minsk agreements had been at a standstill since 2015. Dmitry Medvedev also said he assumed that Ukraine would not implement the Minsk agreements.
  Other members of the Security Council also argued that a critical situation had developed in the Donbass. After having listened to all opinions, Putin assured that a decision would be made the same day.  •

Russia claims Ukraine destroying evidence of US-funded bioweapons program


Russia’s Defense Ministry says Kiev ordered scientists to destroy samples of plague, anthrax, and other lethal pathogens

 

As Russian troops entered Ukraine, the government in Kiev ordered the “emergency destruction” of pathogens including plague and anthrax at US-funded laboratories near the Russian border, the Ministry of Defense in Moscow claimed on Sunday. Earlier rumors that the Russian military was targeting US-run biolabs were written off as conspiracy theories, but the ministry has promised to back up its claims with documents.

“We have received documentation from employees of Ukrainian biolaboratories on the emergency destruction on February 24 of especially dangerous pathogens of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera and other deadly diseases,” read a statement from the ministry.

The statement accused the “Kiev regime” of conducting an “emergency cleansing” to hide evidence of the supposed biological weapons program, which the ministry claimed was funded by the US, and involved the production of “biological weapons components” at at least two laboratories in the cities of Poltava and Kharkov, both of which have seen intense fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces in recent days.

The documents published by the ministry purportedly include an order from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health to destroy the pathogens, and lists of the germs in question.

RT can not independently verify the authenticity of these documents. Russia’s Defense Ministry said that they are currently being analyzed by radiation, chemical and biological protection specialists.

“In the near future we will present the results of the analysis,” the ministry said, adding that it believes the documents will prove that Ukraine and the US were violating Article 1 of the UN Biological Weapons Convention. The US, Ukraine and Russia are among more than 180 parties to this treaty, and under Article 1 of the agreement, all parties agree “never under any circumstances to develop, produce, stockpile, acquire, or retain” biological weapons.

As of the moment of this article’s publication, Washington has not commented on the ministry’s claims, and neither has Kiev.

In the initial days of Russia’s military offensive last month, claims circulated online that Russia was targeting western-funded biolabs with missile strikes. These allegations were never verified and were derided by western sources as conspiracy theories, although the Pentagon has publicly stated that it works with the Ukrainian government to “consolidate and secure pathogens and toxins of security concern in Ukrainian government facilities,” for “peaceful research and vaccine development,” according to the US embassy in Kiev.

 China urges Pentagon to open

 

China urges Pentagon to open up about ‘biolabs’ in Ukraine

 

Beijing said that the US defense department controls 336 laboratories around the world

 

China’s foreign ministry has called on the US to disclose information on the Pentagon’s alleged biological laboratories in Ukraine “as soon as possible”.

On Monday, the Russian military said Ukrainian authorities had been destroying pathogens studied at its laboratories. Moscow claimed that 30 US-financed Ukrainian biolabs have been actively cooperating with the American military.

Kiev has denied developing bioweapons. According to the website of the US embassy in Kiev, the US Department of Defense’s Biological Threat Reduction Program only “collaborates with partner countries to counter the threat of outbreaks” of infectious diseases. In 2020, the embassy called such theories about US-funded biolabs in Ukraine "disinformation."

Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday, however, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian claimed that, according to his country’s information, the laboratories in Ukraine are just “a tip of an iceberg” and that the US Department of Defense “controls 336 biological laboratories in 30 countries around the world.” This is done under the pretext of “cooperating to reduce biosecurity risks” and “strengthening global public health,” Zhao said.

It is the first time that Beijing has disclosed the alleged figure. Zhao said that according to data “released by the United States itself,” there are 26 US laboratories in Ukraine. In light of Russia’s military offensive in the country, he urged “all parties concerned” to ensure the safety of the labs.

In particular, the United States, as the party which knows these laboratories best, should publish the relevant details as soon as possible, including which viruses are stored and which research has been carried out,” he said.

He claimed the US “has been exclusively obstructing” the establishment of an independent verification mechanism. Such behavior, Zhao said, “further aggravates the concerns of the international community.

According to a report in The Rio Times, the US embassy in Ukraine deleted all information about Pentagon-financed bio-labs in the country from its website on February 26. However, journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva claimed embassy staff forgot to remove a document showing that the Pentagon is funding two new biolabs in Kiev and Odessa.

Ukraine has no control over the military biolabs. The Ukrainian government is not allowed to release sensitive information about the program,” the Brazilian news outlet claimed.

Over the past 20 years, the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine, jointly established with the United States, invested over $285 million in about 1,850 projects carried out by scientists who, according to Gaytandzhieva, previously worked on the development of weapons of mass destruction.

US authorities are yet to comment on the latest claims.

US war bio-labs in ukraine.....

 

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said it has been closely monitoring the bioweapons programs that were developed by the Pentagon in post-Soviet countries. In particular, a “network” of more than 30 biological laboratories was formed on the territory of Ukraine, according to new findings.

Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland admitted on Tuesday that Ukraine hosts what she called “biological research facilities,” adding that the United States is concerned they could come under the control of Russian forces.

 

 

“Ukraine has biological research facilities, which in fact we are now quite concerned Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of, so we are working with the Ukrainians on how they can prevent any of those research materials from falling into the hands of Russian forces should they approach,” Nuland said during a Senate hearing on Ukraine.

 

Really good cleanup by Rubio: interrupting Nuland's bizarre confession, which he did not expect, and immediately directing her to say that if there's a biological attack, it must be Russia.

 

Why is she so concerned Russia would seize such a benign "biological research facility"?

— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) March 8, 2022

 

The Russian Defense Ministry recently published documents showing that Kiev was ordered to urgently eliminate traces of what was called a biological weapons program.

Documentation was received from Ukrainian biological research laboratories on the urgent destruction of dangerous pathogens on February 24, including anthrax, cholera and the plague, in what could be a cover-up of Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) violations.

“Now the documents are being analyzed by military specialists from the Russian radiation, chemical and biological protection forces,” the ministry’s spokesman Igor Konashenkov said, adding that the Pentagon has been experiencing difficulties in continuing its secret biological experiments with the start of Russian special operation in Ukraine.

US/UK lie through clinched teeth...

Statement by Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia at UNSC
Briefing on Biological Laboratories in Ukraine

 

Mme. President,

 

Colleagues,

 

COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated how vulnerable humanity is in the face of biological threats. It has exacted a huge toll on us, and it continues to claim people’s lives.

When the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) entered into force in 1975, there was hope that the world would at least be safe from manmade biological threats, because all states-signatories realized enormous risks of using biological weapons (BW) and abandoned plans to develop it.

Unfortunately, we have grounds to think that those hopes did not come true completely.

We called this meeting because during the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, some shocking facts came to light: the Kiev regime is urgently concealing traces of a military biological program that Kiev implemented with support of the US Department of Defense.

Defense Ministry of Russia got hold of documents confirming that Ukraine developed a network of at least 30 biological laboratories that host extremely dangerous biological experiments, aimed at enhancing the pathogen properties of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera, and other lethal diseases with the help of synthetic biology. This work is funded and directly supervised by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) of the United States, i.a. in the interests of Pentagon’s National Center for Medical Intelligence. The key role in these programs was played by a BSL-3 central reference laboratory at the Mechnikov Scientific-Research Anti-Plague Institute in Odessa, Ukraine. Research centers in other cities also played a role – Kiev, Lvov, Kharkov, Dnipro, Kherson, Ternopol, Uzhgorod, Vinnytsia. Research results were sent to US military biological centers, i.a. to U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infections Diseases, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, US Naval Medical Research, and US Army Biological Warfare Labs in Fort Detrick that used to be the key hubs of the American biological weapons program.

All the materials are available at the website of Russian Ministry of Defense and are presented at daily briefings. Let me cite the most telling examples.

Russian military learned the details of UP-4 project which was implemented at laboratories in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa. It studied possibilities of spreading particularly dangerous infections through migratory birds, including highly pathogenic H5N1 influenza (lethal to humans in 50 % of cases) and Newcastle disease. As part of another project, bats were considered as carriers of potential BW agents. Among the priorities identified are the study of bacterial and viral pathogens that can be transmitted from bats to humans: pathogens of plague, leptospirosis, brucellosis, as well as coronaviruses and filoviruses. Project documents clearly indicate that the United States actively financed bioprojects in Ukraine.

Besides, there were experiments to study spreading of dangerous infectious diseases by ectoparasites – fleas and lice. It is clear even to non-experts that such experiments are most reckless, as they give no opportunity to control how the situation is going to evolve. Similar research (using fleas and lice as BW agents) was carried out in the 1940s on the development of biological weapons components by the Japanese infamous unit 731, whose members later fled to the US to escape prosecution for war crimes. 

Ukraine has a unique geographical location, where transcontinental migration routes of potential carriers of dangerous diseases intersect. Many of those routes pass through the territories of Russia and Eastern Europe. The research that I mentioned was done in the very midst of Eastern Europe and in close vicinity to the Russian borders. According to the data received, the birds that were ringed and released during biological research from the Kherson nature reserve, were caught in Ivanovo and Voronezh regions of Russia.

The analysis of the obtained materials confirms the transfer of more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats from a biolab in Kharkov abroad. We do not know anything about the fate of those dangerous biomaterials and the consequences that may occur once they “dissipate” (possibly in Europe) in the absence of any international control. In any case, risks are high that they may be stolen for terrorist purposes or to be sold at the black market.

Several thousands of samples of blood serum of COVID-19 patients (most of them of Slavic ethnicity) were transported from Ukraine to Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in the United Stated – allegedly for trials of treatment and prevention of COVID-19.

Everyone knows how sensitive Western states are when it comes to transferring biological samples of their citizens abroad. And there is a good reason for that – theoretically, samples may be used to create bioagents capable of selectively targeting different ethnic populations.

The activity of biolabs in Ukraine that we track back to 2014, and US-implemented program of so-called reform of Ukrainian healthcare system triggered uncontrolled growing incidence of dangerous and economically relevant infections in Ukraine. There is an increase in the number of cases of rubella, diphtheria, tuberculosis. Occurrence of measles has increased more than 100-fold. The World Health Organization said Ukraine runs high risks of having a polio outbreak. There is evidence that in Kharkov, where one of the labs is located, 20 Ukrainian soldiers died of swine flu in January 2016, 200 more were hospitalized. By March 2016, the total of 364 people had died of swine flu in Ukraine. Besides, outbreaks of African swine fever occur regularly in Ukraine. In 2019, there was an outbreak of a disease that had symptoms similar to plague.

While the US itself shut down military-purpose biological research on its territory due to high risks it posed to American population, the Kiev authorities actually agreed to turn their country into a biological testing site and have their citizens used as potential test subjects. Those experiments bearing potential country-scale risks continued for years. This once again proves the cynicism of Kiev’s Western patrons who keep shouting from every rooftop that they care for the fate of Ukrainians.

As reported by Reuters, WHO recommended that Ukraine should eliminate its stocks of pathogens to avoid possible leaks that might trigger disease spread among the population. It is not known for sure whether Kiev has complied.

The materials that our Defense Ministry got hold of prove that all serious high-risk research in Ukrainian biolabs was directly supervised by US experts who had diplomatic immunity. Our Defense Ministry reports that at this moment the Kiev regime, as demanded by the Western sponsors, hastily covers up all traces so that the Russian side could not get hold of direct evidence of the US and Ukraine violating Article 1 of the BTWC. They rush to shut down all biological programs. Ukraine’s Health Ministry ordered to eliminate biological agents deposited in biolabs starting from 24 February 2022. We infer from the instructions to lab personnel that the order of elimination of collections suggested that they should be destroyed irrevocably. Having analyzed the destruction certificates, we can say that the Lvov lab alone destroyed 232 containers with pathogens of leptospirosis, 30 – of tularemia, 10 – of brucellosis, 5 – of plague. The total of more than 320 containers was eliminated. Pathogens’ titles and excessive amounts give reason to think that this work was done as part of military biological programs.

Now let me make a separate address to our colleagues from Europe.

All those years, there was a site for dangerous biological tests on the doorstep of the European Union. We call to think of a real biological threat to the population of European states that may be posed by uncontrolled spread of biological agents from Ukraine. As we know from our experience with COVID-19, this cannot be stopped. Should this be the case, it will encompass the entire Europe.

US representatives get rather confused when speaking about the US involvement in biological activity on the territory of Ukraine. During hearings of the US Congress on 8 March, Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland in fact confirmed that there were biolabs in Ukraine where military-purpose biological research had been conducted. When asked by Senator Marco Rubio whether Ukraine had biological and chemical weapons, she responded that Ukraine had biological research facilities that “should not fall in the hands of Russian forces”.

At the same time, the Department of State sticks to the point that allegedly there are no US-controlled biolabs in Ukraine. Hence a question to the American delegation. How does this reconcile with 2005 Agreement between the US Department of Defense and Ukrainian Ministry of Health Concerning Cooperation in the Area of Prevention of Proliferation of Technology, Pathogens, and Expertise that could be Used in the Development of Biological Weapons? This document is available on the Internet. According to Article 3 of this agreement, the US Department of Defense may provide assistance to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine in the area of “cooperative biological research, biological threat agent detection and response” with regard to “dangerous pathogens located at the facilities in Ukraine”.

We emphasize that biological threats defy all borders. No region of the world can feel totally safe today. The United States supervises several hundreds of biolabs in 30 countries, i.a. in the Middle East, Africa, South-East Asia, and along the perimeter of former USSR. Washington does not agree to subject them to international verification. Starting from 2001, it has been impeding elaboration of a binding protocol to the BTWC that should envisage a reliable verification mechanism to monitor states’ compliance with the Convention. This cannot but make us think that the United States has something to conceal. I call on the colleagues from those regions to think of what sort of activity Washington is carrying out on their territories and what consequences it may have for the population.

We foresee the reaction of our Western colleagues who will definitely say that this information is all fake and Russian propaganda. However this sort of wishful thinking will hardly help Europeans should Ukraine and its neighboring states have outbreaks of dangerous diseases that would subsequently spread beyond their borders. This risk seems rather real if we take into account considerable interest that Ukrainian radical and nationalist groups have in research of dangerous pathogens that was conducted in Ukraine in the interests of the US Department of Defense. We have information that Pentagon instructed its Ukrainian protégés that, should any incidents occur, they should instantly accuse Russian Armed Forces who allegedly launch strikes against research and medical facilities, or blame it all on “Russian subversive teams”.

Russian Defense Ministry keeps analyzing the biological situation in Ukraine and all incoming materials. What we shared today is a small portion of information that we have. We will share the details shortly as UNSC official documents so that you could study them.

We feel obliged to keep the Security Council updated on the situation with US military-purpose biological activity in Ukraine that creates real risks for international peace and security. We intend to get back to this topic soon. We would not exclude a possibility of activating mechanisms envisaged by Articles 5 and 6 of the BTWC. For now, we would like to hear answers of the US side to the questions that we asked.

Thank you.

 

 

Right of reply

Mr. President, 

What are the takeaways of this discussion? As we supposed, none of our colleagues spoke to the point that we raised.

While my American colleague was “hurling thunderbolts”, accusing us (quite predictably) of propaganda, two things came to my mind. The first one is a Russian proverb that can be roughly translated as “a guilty mind is never at ease”. The louder our colleagues cry when making baseless attempts to shift the blame on us, the more we believe that we hit a nerve when we raised their unseemly activities in Ukraine. Secondly, you cannot help recalling another episode that was repeatedly mentioned in various contexts. I mean C.Powell’s famous lab tube that he demonstrated in this very room and that served as a formal reason for US invasion of Iraq that caused an enormous number of victims and huge damage. It affected the entire region and triggered i.a. creation of ISIL terrorist organization. Our Albanian colleague talked about a Pandora’s box today. Well, this was a Pandora’s Box. Many of you said you were not aware of Ukraine’s biological programs, but this does not mean they did not exist. Military research is a secret venture. Those engaged in it would not report it to USG Nakamitsu.

Think of Raqqa and Mosul that were razed to the ground. The US-led coalition buried thousands of civilian lives under the ruins of these cities. Dead bodies lay under the rubble for several months, and I can’t remember our colleagues spilling their righteous anger on that matter. We repeatedly raised it at UNSC meetings, but the topic simply died out and no one would get back to it. However not a day goes by without speculations about atrocities of Russian forces, daily attacks on hospitals, kindergartens, schools, maternity clinics, use of cluster bombs, which our Defense Ministry refuted repeatedly.

Maternity hospital #1 in Mariupol has become proverbial in this respect. Let me ask – did you listen to what we said here on Monday, 7 March? It was about militants and radicals turning this building in a gun post. We warned about it back then, but you would not listen, and you do not want to listen to what we say. You saw pictures of the maternity hospital allegedly hit by a bomb or missile. I also have them here. They show a building, windowless but not ruined. I bet you can imagine what should have happened to a building hit by a bomb or missile strike, and also to everyone inside. I have photo and video footage from inside the building. It shows a mess, furniture scattered upside down, and intact chairs.

Let me ask again: can you imagine what sort of damage would have been inflicted by a bomb or missile strike? Military experts could tell you. As a matter of fact, they already have. They demonstrated a photo of the crater next to the building. By all indications, it was caused by an underground explosion. In the meantime, we are told about 17 people injured in this building, and none killed. As a proof, we are supposed to accept staged photos of Ukrainian blogger Marianna Podgurskaya taken by AP stringer Evgeniy Maloletka. By the way, web users already discovered that she roleplays different women in different photos.

We are appalled by the vile and dirty campaign besmirching the Russian military, who are accused of attacking civil facilities on purpose. You blame us for fakes and propaganda, but you ignore an overwhelming amount of fakes, replicated by Ukrainian and Western centers for special psychological operations. At the same time, you keep shamefully silent about the fact that you almost cut off access to Russian sources of information. Over these days, we have learnt much about the freedom of speech which you believe yourselves to be champions of.

Let me respond to my British colleague who cited, incompletely as usual, the words of Minister Lavrov that we did not start a war. Here is the full quote: “We did not start the war, we want to put an end to it”. Indeed, it was not started by us, it was started 8 years ago by the Kiev authorities in Donbas.

Yesterday, a video was uploaded on the Internet depicting Ukrainians in military uniform somewhere near Kharkov who reportedly down Russian aircraft from a portable air defense launcher. Close by, there is a white vehicle (seemingly a Toyota) with U.N. insignia. Presumably, those people arrived on the scene by this vehicle. We already asked representatives of U.N. Secretariat about it, but were reassured that U.N. vehicles were not used by Ukrainian Territorial Defense Forces (U.N. vehicles were previously reported to be used in Kramatorsk). We insist that the United Nations should investigate this incident. Even if it turns out that this car is not a U.N. vehicle, usage of U.N. insignia on transport that is used in hostilities is unacceptable.

Thank you.

Remarks by U.S. Amb. Thomas-Greenfield at a U.N. Security Council Meeting Called by Russia to Spread Disinformation About Ukraine 

 

Thank you, Mr. President. And thank you to our briefers for your remarks this morning.  

Russia asked the Security Council for today’s meeting for the sole purpose of lying and spreading disinformation, and that is exactly what you have heard from the Russian PR this morning. You also heard from Ms. Nakamitsu that the U.N. is not aware of any biological or chemical weapons programs in Ukraine.  

Last month, Secretary Blinken laid out with tragic accuracy what Russia was about to do. He specifically warned that Russia would manufacture a pretext for attack, and even cautioned that Russia would fabricate allegations about chemical or biological weapons to justify its own violent attacks against the Ukrainian people. Today, the world is watching Russia do exactly what we warned it would. Russia is attempting to use the Security Council to legitimize disinformation and deceive people to justify President Putin’s war of choice against the Ukrainian people. And China, too, has been spreading disinformation in support of Russia’s outrageous claims.  ?  

I will say this once: Ukraine does not have a biological weapons program. There are no Ukrainian biological weapons laboratories supported by the United States – not near Russia’s border or anywhere.  

So here are the facts: Ukraine owns and operates its own public health laboratory infrastructure. These facilities make it possible to detect and diagnose diseases like COVID-19, which benefit us all. The United States has assisted Ukraine to do this safely and securely. This is work that has been done proudly, clearly, and out in the open. This work has everything to do with protecting the health of people. It has absolutely nothing – absolutely nothing – to do with biological weapons.  

In fact, it is Russia that has long maintained a biological weapons program in violation of international law. It is Russia that has a well-documented history of using chemical weapons. It is Russia who is the aggressor here. It was Russian operatives who poisoned Aleksey Navalny and Sergey and Yulia Skripal with nerve agents. It is Russia that continues to support the Assad regime in Syria and shield it from accountability when the U.N. and the OPCW have confirmed that Assad has repeatedly used chemical weapons over the past several years.  

And we are deeply concerned that Russia’s calling for this meeting is a potential false flag effort in action – exactly the kind we have been warning about, including from Secretary Blinken here in the Security Council last month. Russia has a track record of falsely accusing other countries of the very violations that Russia itself is perpetrating. And given that and consistent with our previous statements, we have serious concerns that Russia may be planning to use chemical or biological agents against the Ukrainian people. The intent behind these lies seems clear, and it is deeply troubling. We believe Russia could use chemical or biological agents for assassinations, as part of a staged or false flag incident, or to support tactical military operations. From the beginning, our strategy to counter Russia’s tactics has been to share what we know with the world transparently. And candidly, we have been right more often than we’d like.    

We’re not going to let Russia get away with lying to the world or staining the integrity of the Security Council by using this forum as a venue for legitimizing Putin’s violence. Russia has attacked homes, schools, orphanages, and hospitals. Russia has attacked civilian infrastructure, including water and sanitation facilities. Their forces are laying Ukrainian cities under siege. Hundreds of thousands of civilians now don’t have access to electricity for heat or drinking water to stay alive. Russia is the aggressor here.  

And despite Russia’s best efforts, the media – and everyday Ukrainians – are documenting this truth on the ground. Russia can’t paint over the front page of the New York Times, which on Monday featured the bodies of a Ukrainian mother and her two children who died while trying to cross a bridge outside Kyiv in their attempt to flee to safety. Russia cannot cover up the work of AP news reporters who captured a doctor attempting to resuscitate an 18-month-old, Kirill, who died from Russian shelling in Mariupol. Russia cannot suppress the social media post, confirmed and amplified by CBS News, that told the story of the 11-year-old Ukrainian boy who fled to Slovakia, by himself, with only a passport, a plastic bag, and a phone number scrawled on his hands. Russia cannot silence the Al-Jazeera report of Russian soldiers terrorizing Ukrainian cities. And Ukrainian journalists are risking their lives every day to deliver to the world the latest on the ground facts, such as Novoe Vremye reporting on the reckless behavior of Russian forces towards Ukraine’s nuclear facilities.  

Russia is failing in its quest to create an alternative reality. In fact, not even Russian diplomats can keep their propaganda straight. Just yesterday, the Kremlin’s spokesman said he didn’t have clear information about the Russian forces who fired on a maternity hospital. Then the Foreign Minister himself denied Russia attacked Ukraine at all, right before admitting that Russia deliberately targeted this maternity hospital in Mariupol. Their fabrications didn’t matter, because the world had already seen the searing images broadcast on CNN of bloodied pregnant women being evacuated from the scene of Russia’s attack on the hospital.  

Even Russia’s own citizens are tiring of such lies. Russian athletes are writing “no war” on their shoes and on TV cameras. Russian citizens are marching in the streets and protesting Putin’s war of choice. And even Russian state TV pundits – Putin’s own propaganda arm – have called for Putin to stop the military action.  

This is why we didn’t object to holding today’s meeting. Today’s meeting has confirmed our predictions, revealed Russia’s objectives to the world, and exposed Russia’s lies for what they are – a malicious effort to cover for the atrocities being committed by Russia as part of their illegal and unprovoked attack on Ukraine. It is a page directly out of the Russian playbook, and it will not convince us one bit.    

The world is watching. Photographic and video evidence is mounting, and you will be held to account for your actions. We will not let atrocities slide. Unlike the Russian government – whose first instinct is to silence – we are confident that truth and transparency will prevail.  

We call on President Putin to end this unprovoked, unconscionable war against the Ukrainian people.  

Thank you.

Statement by U.K. Ambassador Barbara Woodward at the
UN Security Council Meeting on Ukraine 

Thank you Mr President,

Russia has today brought into the Security Council a series of wild, completely baseless and irresponsible conspiracy theories.

Let me put it diplomatically: they are utter nonsense.

There is not a shred of credible evidence that Ukraine has a biological weapons programme.

Ukraine is a State Party to the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) in good standing.

As we’ve heard, the research facilities are established facilities set up to deal with public health hazards.

The UN briefers today have confirmed this.

This is yet another lie in Russia’s disinformation campaign.

They said they would not invade Ukraine. They then invaded. Foreign Minister Lavrov then said they hadn’t invaded, and he repeated this absurdity yesterday.

A whole pack of lies.

They said Ukraine was preparing a “dirty bomb”.

That was a lie too.

They said yesterday that a pregnant woman staged her injuries in the Mariupol hospital bombing.

That was a grotesque lie.

Russia is sinking to new depths today, but this Council must not get dragged down with it.

So let’s get back to the facts.

Russia is invading Ukraine in violation of international law.

Russia is killing hundreds of civilians through indiscriminate shelling of Ukrainian cities.

It is using cluster munitions and thermobaric rockets, weapons designed to inflict maximum damage wherever they are deployed.

It is targeting hospitals and schools and committing war crimes.

Thousands of Russian and Ukrainian soldiers are dead. Deaths that will shatter the lives of families they have left behind.

2.5 million Ukrainians have become refugees. One million children forced to flee from President Putin’s invasion.

This is a war of choice that Russia needs to end.

Colleagues,

Russia has broken its commitments under the Charter but we must not let it subvert the multilateral system itself.

As the UN said today, Russia is now putting at threat the global framework for peace and security. The Security Council is responsible for addressing many serious conflicts around the world. We have important work to do.

We do not sit in this Chamber to be an audience for Russia’s domestic propaganda.

And we should not allow Russia to abuse its permanent seat to spread disinformation and lies and pervert the purpose of the Security Council.

Let us resolve today that this Council remains focussed on the real threats to international peace and security.

I thank you.

US biolabs...

The Russian military began to pull back the curtain on the scale and scope of the network of Pentagon-funded biolabs in Ukraine last week. US officials and media initially dismissed these revelations as "Russian disinformation," but were forced to correct the narrative after undersecretary of state Nuland admitted that such labs do in fact exist.

The Russian Ministry of Defence has released fresh details about the US military-funded biolabs operating in Ukraine, including a trove of original documentation. The MoD also revealed that Joanna Wintrol, the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency's liason officer at the US Embassy in Kiev, has been serving as one of the programme's curators.

Commenting on a trove of papers released in a presentation Thursday, Russian Radiological, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops chief Igor Kirillov pointed to a document dated 6 March 2015 which he said confirmed in no uncertain terms that components of biological weapons were being created in Ukraine with direct US involvement and financing.

"An analysis of the information received suggests that Ukrainian specialists have not been made aware of the potential risks involved in the transfer of biomaterials, and that they are essentially being used and kept in the dark, and have no real idea about the true goals of the ongoing research," Kirillov said at a briefing in Moscow.

 

Kirillov shed light on a major project worth tens of millions of dollars and involving Ukraine's top biolabs. The research, known as Project UP-8, was "directed at the study of pathogens of Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis and hantaviruses," according to the RCB Defence Troops chief. It is "no coincidence" that Ukraine-based facilities were chosen by the DTRA and contractor Black & Veatch to execute the project, the officer said, given that these pathogens have natural foci in both Ukraine and Russia.

 

"Their use can be disguised as the natural outbreak of diseases. This is why this particular project received additional funding, and the deadlines for its implementation were extended," Kirillov said.

The MoD calculated that labs in Kiev, Odessa, Lvov and Kharkov received $32 million in funding for Project UP-8.

Project P-782

Ukrainian biolaboratories were also the main executor of Project P-782, conducting research into the transmission of diseases through bats. A Russian RCB Defence Troops analysis of documents showed that Pentagon research has been going on since at least 2009 under the direct supervision of US specialists, and that work in this area has also been done through several related projects, known as P-382, P-444 and P-568.

Kirillov said the Pentagon invested $1.6 million into this research, which was said to have been carried out at a lab in Kharkov, northeastern Ukraine, and the Lugar Center in Tbilisi, Georgia.

 

"One of the curators of this activity was DRA Chief Joanna Wintrol. Perhaps she should speak to journalists?" Kirillov suggested.

 

...

 

Project Flu-Fly-Way

The officer also addressed information gleaned from documents received from the Kharkov Institute of Veterinary Medicine on the use of wild migratory birds as vectors for the transmission of a highly pathogenic form of avian influenza. This research, he said, included a study of the conditions under which the processes of the virus's transmission could become uncontrollable, with the purpose being to cause economic damage and creating risks to food security.

sickness USA.....

This week, writing as of the 2nd week of March 2022, the United States will reach 1 million dead from COVID 19. This disease, according to, not so much facts, but rather the tired acceptance of corrupt press and a public sated with conspiracy theories, is the “Kung Flu.”

As with false narratives, and there are so many, it all began with the Chinese love of “bat soup.” Behind this fanciful deception, the US began seeding tales of illegal Chinese bioweapons laboratories into the mix, all part of the “cover and deception “program that has, for many years, hidden a network of over 300 mysterious laboratories in over two dozen countries.

Those labs, such as those in Ukraine, Georgia and throughout the Caucasus studied diseases like COVID, Swine and Avian Flu and others that eventually manifested themselves into varying degrees of pandemic but with no known source of origin, unless you were to assume, wrongfully according to the United States, that the labs that created the diseases may well have unleashed them themselves.

There is an even worse problem, however, the inordinate lack of curiosity on the part of everyone until very recently. America’s military budgets have shown billions spent on investigating the most horrific diseases imaginable, including both Smallpox and Anthrax “seeded” with hemorrhagic fever type viruses, think “Ebola.”

The basic idea is this, according to the United States:

 

  • Every imaginable new disease that can be created in a laboratory using the most advanced technologies available must be made, must be stored and must be improved upon so that just incase someone else is as stupid or plain evil as the United States, a plan for defending against these disease vectors can be developed.
  • The military programs that fund over 300 laboratories that research biological weapons exist based on assumptions that unnamed other nations, may well begin similar programs and that the United States should not be left with a “missile gap” type scenario as existed during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
  • Moreover, these laboratories, working with the most dangerous substances known to man, far more dangerous than nuclear weapons, tend to exist in the most unstable regions of the world in nations with the most corrupt governments as well. Here, things begin to fall apart.

 

So, let’s look at all of this again, historically.

Back in late 1945, the US began Operation Paperclip, run by CIA Director Allen Dulles (he and his brother, later to be Eisenhower’s Secretary of State were attorneys for Adolf Hitler in the United States during the period before World War II) and assisted by a Naval Lt. Commander Richard Milhouse Nixon.

It was their job to bring Axis scientists and others, including almost the entire Abwehr, to the United States. America got Werner Von Braun, but it also got “Unit 731.”

This was the Japanese germ warfare program that unleashed bubonic plague, not only on China but the Western United States as well and murdered thousands during “tests.”

Unit 731 became the basis for the Pentagon’s biological research program that continues today, using laboratories located in remote areas where governmental control is weak and planned “leaks,” in reality limited scale tests of pathogens, could be “contained,” if not medically, certainly through disinformation.

In fact, with the rare exception of the program in the Republic of Georgia being exposed by Jeffrey Silverman, other programs have managed to function year after year without question.

How many have died?

How close did the world come to the total erasure of mankind?

There is no one to ask, no media investigates, until days ago, no one even know where these labs are.

There is strong reason to believe that an additional parallel capability exists even inside the US. From National Public Radio:

 

Fort Detrick, Md., was created in the middle of World War II and became the center for America’s biological warfare efforts. But that role shifted in 1969, the government says, to focus solely on defense against the threat of biological weapons.

Then called Detrick Airfield, the science and research facility housed four biological agent production plants.

Anthrax was considered the most important agent. Simulants were tested, and one bomb was readied for production in 1944. One million bombs were ordered, though the order was canceled when the war ended in 1945.

During the 1950s, the biological weapons program was among the most classified within the Pentagon. There was an emphasis on biological agents for use against enemy forces as well as plants and animals.

The Army says no biological weapons were used during the Korean War, though such allegations were made by the Chinese and the Koreans.

 

However, since 1969, research into weaponization of diseases, research that includes developing new pathogens, new means of dispersal and, above all, the means of deploying bioweapons and blaming others has been outsourced, not just to labs hidden across the third world but stashed within universities across the United States as well. From Veterans Today:

 

In 2017, a “study” funded by a CIA front created COVID 19 at the University of North Carolina, made from a sample received from Wuhan. Backtracking, we find this 2006 study on how to re-engineer the more deadly but less effective SARS virus into something exactly like COVID 19, a study published by UNC in 2006. There are others dating back to 2006, part of a covert Bush-era program to renew America’s biological warfare capability.

 

One need only to look for published papers and follow the academic histories of those involved in research of monstrous new diseases to find a trail leading back to Fort Detrick, Maryland.

Conclusion

The hard questions are the ones never asked. If there is another nation, other than perhaps Israel, an American ally, actively developing bioweapons that represents a high degree of threat to the United States, why are they never named?

Then again, with billions in funding for hundreds of laboratories in the remote backwaters of the world developing “planet killer” diseases for no stated purpose whatsoever, can simple denials such as the one we heard from Victoria Nuland this week be allowed to stand, even among America’s supposed allies?

We might also state that this week, forces of the Russian military entered several of the American labs in Ukraine. Those involved in this process told this writer that tribunals are planned in order to address some of the questions we are asking here.

If the United States is engaged in what evidence suggests, a decades old massive biological weapons program, perhaps even one tasked with developing diseases capable of targeting certain population variants, why was this allowed to continue so long under so many administrations?

Is Chuck Todd a Chemical Agent?

 

by  Posted on March 21, 2022

 

Although he had stiff competition Sunday, NBC’s Chuck Todd won this week’s Oscar for supporting functionary of the the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-MEDIA-Academia-Think-Tank complex (MICIMATT).

It is a "complex" with a complex bereft of soul or compassion in its overweening lust to profiteer on tension and war. In the case of Ukraine, U.S. and NATO profiteers are willing to fight to the last Ukrainian, and even to risk war with Russia in the process.

Why would provocateurs like Chuck Todd want to edge us closer to war with Russia; cui bono? The beneficiary is the MICIMATT. Please take a minute to ponder the entity identified by each letter. Note also that I put MEDIA in all caps. That is because the media are the fulcrum, the cornerstone – the sine qua non.

The MICIMATT cannot do its profiteering without the media. When President Eisenhower warned of the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex) he noted pointedly that the only antidote to its dangerous accretion of power would be "a well informed citizenry". We ain’t got one.

Todd Playing With Chemicals – Again

On Meet the Press yesterday, Todd repeatedly asked NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg whether chemical weapons might change the Western calculus on intervention in Ukraine. Todd: "Is a No-fly Zone forever off the table or would the use of chemical weapons make NATO rethink." And two minutes later, "Russia’s use of chemical weapons, would that be considered, though, an escalation on his [presumably Putin’s] part that would make NATO rethink?"

It may be hard to believe that Stoltenberg was unprepared to give some some sort of answer to this obvious question, but he is only good at regurgitating what he has memorized. Yesterday, in the absence of instructions from Washington, he appeared nonplused and gave a non-response. To which Todd replied condescendingly, "It does sound as though you don’t have an answer yet."

Throwing Out Bait for a ‘Red Line’

Todd’s grilling of Stoltenberg on what might cause NATO to impose a No-fly Zone over Ukraine, or escalate in some other way, is part and parcel of what the middle "M" in MICIMATT is assigned to do these days – to keep the pot boiling and turn up the heat as necessary. Those not irredeemably brainwashed by Establishment media deem it reckless to risk war with Russia. But they are not fixated on the dollar figure on the corporate bottom line. The more tension, the better for Raytheon and Lockheed and the other mega corporations that actually own the media. (Also yesterday, on CNN’s State of the Union, US UN ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield told Jake Tapper that if Russia uses chemical weapons, "we will respond aggressively.")

An Accomplished False-Flag Precursor

It was less than ten years ago, but one hopes that then-Vice President Joe Biden was made aware of the interesting role Chuck Todd played in baiting a trap for President Barack Obama. The idea was to trick the president into launching an open war against Syria based on a false-flag chemical attack blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

At the very end of an impromptu press conference on Aug. 20, 2012, NBC’s Todd primed the mousetrap with some cheese, asking about the reluctance Obama had expressed regarding engaging US armed forces in Syria. Were there no conditions under which Obama might change his calculus? Obama answered:

"I have, at this point, not ordered military engagement … But the point that you made about chemical and biological weapons is critical. That’s an issue that doesn’t just concern Syria; it concerns our close allies in the region, including Israel. It concerns us. … We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation."

Hillary’s Unseen Hand

This was the answer pushed by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her neocon advisers, who had made no secret of their determination to topple Bashar al-Assad, one way or another. The Washington Post account of the press conference suggests that White House staffers had been blind-sided and were trying to put the best face on it.

Then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, "I didn’t know it [the red line] was coming." Goldberg added that Vice President Joe Biden had repeatedly warned Obama against drawing a red line on chemical weapons, fearing that it would one day have to be enforced.

Ten days before Obama’s impromptu press conference, Clinton had met with her Turkish counterpart in Istanbul and emphasized the need to jointly plan ways to assist the rebels fighting to topple Assad – including possibly implementing a no-fly zone.

Sound familiar?

Long story short, on August 21, 2013, almost exactly a year after Chuck Todd’s trap-laying, there was a false-flag chemical attack at Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, which then-Secretary of State John Kerry blamed on President Assad, while adducing no intelligence to support that allegation. Fortunately, President Vladimir Putin got the Syrians to destroy their chemical weapon stocks, pulling Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire. Kerry, the neocons, and Israel were embarrassed and incensed; they did not get their war on Syria. For more on this please see "When Putin Bailed Out Obama" and "How War on Syria Lost Its Way (see subhead: "Morose at CNN").

Chuck Todd and Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield are hardly the only ones warning of/predicting a Russian chemical attack in Ukraine. My guess is that a false-flag event blamed on Russia is likely in the next week or so.

US bioweapons links…...

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow

Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,

You cannot say, or guess, for you know only

A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,

And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,

And the dry stone no sound of water. Only

There is shadow under this red rock,

(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),

And I will show you something different from either

Your shadow at morning striding behind you

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

 

T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land: I. The Burial of the Dead, 1922

 

BY 


This glimpse of “fear in a handful of dust” already ranks as one the prime breakthroughs of the young 21st century, presented this week by Chief of Russian Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Force Igor Kirillov.

The provisional results of evidence being collected about the work of U.S. bioweapons in Ukraine are simply astonishing. These are the main takeaways.

  1. U.S. bioweapon ideologues comprise the leadership of the Democratic Party. By linking with non-governmental biotechnology organizations, using the investment funds of the Clintons, Rockefellers, Soros and Biden, they profited from additional campaign financing – all duly concealed. In parallel, they assembled the legislative basis for financing the bioweapons program directly from the federal budget.
  2. COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers Pfizer and Moderna, as well as Merck and Gilead – of Donald “known unknowns” fame, and affiliated with the Pentagon – were directly involved.
  3. U.S. specialists tested new drugs in the Ukraine biolabs in circumvention of international safety standards. According to Kirillov, acting this way “Western companies seriously reduce the costs of research programs and gain significant competitive advantages.”
  4. According to Kirillov, “along with U.S. pharmaceutical companies and Pentagon contractors, Ukrainian government agencies are involved in military biotechnology activities, whose main tasks are to conceal illegal activities, conduct field and clinical trials and provide the necessary biomaterial.”
  5. The Pentagon, Kirillov pointed out, expanded its research potential not only in terms of producing biological weapons, but also gathering information on antibiotic resistance and the presence of antibodies to certain diseases among the population in specific regions. The testing ground in Ukraine was practically outside the control of the so-called “international community”.

These findings, amply documented, suggest a vast “legitimized” bioweapon racket reaching the highest levels of the American body politic. There’s no doubt the Russians plan to thoroughly unmask it for the benefit of world public opinion, starting with a War Crimes Tribunal to be set up this summer, most probably in Donetsk.

An ongoing U.S. bioweapons program in Ukraine was one of the Top Three reasons that led to the launch of Operation Z, side by side with preventing an imminent NATO-managed blitzkrieg against Donbass and Kiev’s desire to re-start a nuclear weapons program. These are Top Three red lines for Russia.

The strength of the collected evidence may directly correlate with what was largely interpreted as a carefully measured Victory Day speech by President Putin. The Kremlin does not bluff. It will certainly privilege the meticulous presentation of – bioweapon – facts on the ground over grandstanding rhetoric.

The return of Nord Stream 2

Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyaniskiy announced Russia’s demand for an open meeting of the UN Security Council to present further evidence related to U.S. biolabs in Ukraine. Even if the meeting would be vetoed by the U.S., the evidence will be entered by Russia on the UN records.

These developments provide an extra indication there’s absolutely no space left for diplomacy between Russia and the U.S./collective West, as Polyaniskiy himself suggested when commenting the possible accession of Ukraine to the EU: “The situation has changed after Mr. Borrell’s statement that ‘this war should be won on the battleground’ and after the fact that the European Union is the leader in deliveries of arms [to Ukraine].”

It gets worse. The next chapter is Finland’s drive to join NATO.

The Americans gamble that Finland – and Sweden – joining NATO will totally discredit Putin’s Operation Z as having accomplished next to nothing strategically: after all, in the near future, potential U.S. hypersonic missiles stationed in Finland and Sweden will be very close to Saint Petersburg and Moscow.

Meanwhile, Russian unmasking of the bioweapon racket will drive a toxic section of American political elites to turbo-charge their warmongering. It’s all following a carefully calculated script.

First, these bioweapon-supervising “elites” ordered the massive Kiev shelling of Donbas in early February. That forced the Kremlin’s hand, pushing it to launch Operation Z.

We should always remember that the ultimate goal in the U.S. plan of training Ukrainians for war since 2014 was to alienate Germany from Russia – as Germany de facto controls Euroland economically.

Imperial control of the oceans allows the Empire to strangle Germany at will into subservience by cutting them off from Russian energy – as the British did to Germany in WWII when Britannia ruled the waves. The Wehrmacht could not supply their mechanized army with fuel. Now, in theory, Germany and the EU will have to look to the seas – and total U.S. dependency – for their natural resources.

The remote-controlled Kiev regime dominated by SBU fanatics and Azov neo-Nazis is making it even harder – by shutting off all natural gas from Russia through Ukraine into Europe, reducing the flow by more than one third.

That translates as U.S.-enforced blackmail to force the EU to increase the Ukro-weaponizing against Russia. The practical consequences for Germany and the EU will be dire – in terms of shut down industries and cost of home heating and electrical power.

Russia, meanwhile, will rely on a bolstered Pipelineistan maze to China and East Asia as well as high-speed rail to transport all its natural resources.

Blowback against the Americans though is not off limits. Stranger things have happened. If gas transit to Europe via Ukraine is totally cut off, there are no alternatives. And that – assuming there are working IQs in Berlin – would open the way for a renegotiation on the future of Nord Stream 2.

As the head of the Energy Development Center Kirill Melnikov notes, “the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline is practically idle and one of the Nord Stream 2 lines is also ready for operation though the German regulator has not issued permission for its launch yet.”

That prompted Melnikov to a priceless comment: “If purchases remain the same, Germany will probably need to urgently allow the launch of one of the Nord Stream 2 lines in order to replace the Ukrainian transit route.”

No one ever lost money betting on the astonishing stupidity permeating EUrocrat decision levels. Even facing economic suicide, the EU is desperate to “abandon” Russian oil. Yet a full ban is impossible, because of energy-deprived Eastern Europe.

Every impartial energy analyst knows replacing Russian oil is D.O.A., for a number of reasons: the OPEC+ deal; the ghastly divide between Washington and Riyadh; the never-ending JCPOA renegotiation, where the Americans behave like headless chickens; and the crucial fact – beyond the understanding of EUrocrats – that European oil refineries are designed to use oil from the Urals.

So just when we thought we could enjoy the summer by watching Europe commit hara-kiri, it’s time to stock up on those Aperol Spritz. Get ready for a new hit series, season 1: Inside the American bioweapon racket.
