US bioweapons labs in Ukraine, what will Russia find? (

5 of 5 (9 votes)

Hello, big post today, but like this it's archived, because I heard some say that these Ukrainian, Georgian Biolabs, etc., were fantasy, or something, so I thought that it was good to translate this article, and let you judge. But I warn you it's long, very long, and it goes far beyond the framework of Ukraine... and one thing leads to another and we arrive in Wuhan. Moreover, there is even talk of binary weapons, capable of hitting a single ethnic group, and of the fact that the Americans 'collect' Russian and Chinese DNA/RNA (presumably) in this sense (and this is nothing new). You see it's simple, so they just have to drop a 'Binary' virus and that's it. They target the 'ethnic groups' they want... There is not much literature on these weapons and these researches (which morality condemns), and normally (as you will read at the bottom of the article) they are prohibited, but not for the United States, haha... (Which refused to sign the international treaties).

Also it is good to give them a little bit of light...,

Thanks to our contributors.

Biolabs In Ukraine What Russia Finds

The Russian military operation in Ukraine seems to be going very successfully. Of course, initial reports should be taken with a grain of salt. But the question arises: what will the Russians find in Ukraine?

ScreenHunter 6305 554x640

Reports from the first day of the Russian military operation in Ukraine show that the Ukrainian military has little to oppose to Russian forces. The Ukrainian army has been heavily armed by NATO, but since most Ukrainian soldiers have been conscripted to serve against their will, their fighting spirit seems decidedly weak.

In many places, it is reported that the Russian army encountered no resistance at the border and that the Ukrainian forces literally waved them through.

Where fighting took place, Ukrainian soldiers waved white flags. It's not true everywhere, but it seems to have happened very frequently. However, the so-called volunteer battalions, in particular, made up of Ukrainian nationalist volunteers, are likely to put up fierce resistance.

Russia reports that there is no longer an operational military airport in Ukraine and that many weapons, including anti-aircraft and artillery, were destroyed in the first hours. The downing of several Turkish-made Bayraktar drones was also reported. CNN filmed Russian soldiers allegedly occupying kyiv airport.

This would make sense, since Russia has announced that one of the objectives of the military operation is to denazify Ukraine. Apparently, the occupation of civilian airports is intended to limit the ability of officials in Ukraine to escape. US biological weapons labs in Ukraine.

I have often reported that the United States, specifically the Pentagon, operates several bioweapons labs in Ukraine. The last time I spoke about it was January 27. The United States has always refused international inspections of its laboratories, so no one knows what they are looking for in these laboratories. But we can assume that Russian special forces will take a closer look at these labs in the coming days.

And it seems to be exactly a Pandora's box. A tweet was posted on Twitter about it and the user was immediately blocked. I won't dwell on the content of the tweet, which can still be found in an internet archive. If you're interested, you can check it out here [1].

What I mean is that Twitter was so quick to remove a tweet and its author, just because it pointed out that there are US bioweapons labs in Ukraine, and it seems that their capture is one of the important targets of the Russian military operation.

Who Russia is still looking for in Ukraine

Russian President Putin said the following in his address to the nation on Monday about the May 2014 Odesa tragedy, in which nearly 50 people were burned to death by radical Maidan supporters and which never resolved in Ukraine:

"The criminals who committed this atrocity have not been punished and no one is looking for them. But we know their names and we will do everything to punish them, find them and bring them to justice."

Considering that the Russian army is also on its way to Odessa, some residents may be very nervous at the moment and try to leave the city quickly.

The same goes for the radical neo-Nazis who are in power in Ukraine. On Russian television, Russian officials say they also want to hold accountable those responsible for other crimes, for example in the Donbass [2].


This devastating 2018 article that prompted an FBI crackdown provides context for how USAID/CIA-funded 2017 research at the University of North Carolina using the horseshoe bat virus from Wuhan, may have ended up centering on the United States, either in a horrific “blowback” or a deliberate Deep State plot against the United States.

It all started with the Clear Vision project, which is described below. The studies related to this project have been scrubbed and published by "budding" academics and scientists who took CIA money and turned off their common sense and professional ethics, if those things still exist.

Dilyana Gaytandzhieva is a Bulgarian investigative journalist and Middle East correspondent. Over the past two years, she published a series of exposed reports on arms smuggling.

Last year, she came under pressure from the Bulgarian National Security Agency and was fired from her job at Bulgarian newspaper Trud Daily without explanation. Despite this, Dilyana continues her investigations. His current report provides insight into the Pentagon's vigor in developing biological weapons.


The US military routinely produces deadly viruses, bacteria and toxins, in direct violation of the UN Biological Weapons Convention. Hundreds of thousands of unwitting people are routinely exposed to dangerous pathogens and other incurable diseases.

Biological warfare scientists, using diplomatic cover, test engineered viruses at Pentagon biological labs located in 25 countries around the world. These American laboratories are financed by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) within the framework of a military program of 2,1 billion, the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), and are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Africa.

Georgia is a proving ground for biological weapons

The Lugar Center is the Pentagon's biological laboratory in Georgia. It is located just 17 km from the US military air base in Vaziani, in the capital Tbilisi. Biologists from the US Army Medical Research Unit-Georgia (USAMRU-G) and private contractors are in charge of the military program. The Biosafety Level 3 lab is only accessible to US citizens with security clearance. They enjoy diplomatic immunity under the 2002 Defense Cooperation Agreement between the United States and Georgia.

The US-Georgia agreement grants diplomatic status to US military and civilian personnel (including diplomatic vehicles), working on the Pentagon program in Georgia.

Information obtained from the U.S. Federal Contract Registry clarifies some of the Lugar Center's military activities, including the research on biological agents (anthrax, tularemia) and viral diseases (e.g. Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever), as well as the collection of biological samples for future experiments.

Pentagon contractors produce biological agents under diplomatic cover

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has contracted much of the work under the military program to private companies, which are not accountable to Congress, and which can operate more freely and circumvent the rule of law.

US civilian personnel performing work at the Lugar Center also enjoyed diplomatic immunity, although they were not diplomats. Thus, private companies can carry out work, under diplomatic cover, for the American government without being under the direct control of the host state. - in this case, the Republic of Georgia. This practice is often used by the CIA to provide cover for its agents.

Three American private companies work at the American biological laboratory in Tbilisi: CH2M Hill, Battelle and Metabiota. Besides the Pentagon, these private contractors perform biological research for the CIA and various other government agencies.

CH2M Hill has been awarded contracts for $341,5 million from DTRA as part of the Pentagon's program for biological laboratories in Georgia, Uganda, Tanzania, Iraq, Afghanistan and Southeast Asia. Half of this amount (161,1 million dollars), being allocated to the Lugar Center under the Georgian contract.

According to CH2M Hill, the American company obtained biological agents and employed former biological warfare scientists at the Lugar Center. These scientists work for another American company involved in the military program in Georgia - Battelle Memorial Institute.

Battelle, as a $59 million contractor to the Lugar Center, has extensive experience in biological agent research, having previously worked on the US biological weapons program under 11 previous contracts with the US Army (1952-1966).

The private company performs work for the Pentagon's DTRA Biological Laboratories in Afghanistan, Armenia, Georgia, Uganda, Tanzania, Iraq and Vietnam. Battelle performs research, development, testing and evaluation using highly toxic chemicals and highly pathogenic biological agents to a wide range of U.S. government agencies. It has won federal contracts worth some $2 billion and ranks 23e ranked on the U.S. government's list of Top 100 Contractors.

The CIA and Battelle's Project Clear Vision

The Clear Vision Project (1997 and 2000), a joint investigation by the CIA and the Battelle Memorial Institute, under a contract awarded by the Agency, reconstructed and tested a Soviet-era anthrax bomb to test its characteristics of dissemination.

The stated objective of the project was to assess the dissemination characteristics of the biological agents of the bombs.

The clandestine CIA-Battelle operation was omitted from the American Biological Weapons Convention declarations submitted to the UN.

Top Secret Experiments

For the past decade, Battelle has operated a top-secret biological laboratory (National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center - NBACC) at Fort Detrick, Maryland under contract with the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ). The company was awarded a federal contract to $344,4 million (2006 - 2016) and another contract $17,3 million (2015 -2026) by DHS.

Among the secret experiments, carried out by Battelle at the NBACC, are assessment of powder dissemination technology, assessment of the hazard posed by aerosol toxins et the evaluation of the virulence of B. Pseudomallei (melioidosis) as a function of aerosol particles in non-human primates. Melioidosis has the potential to be developed as a biological weapon, which is why it is classified in the category B. Bioterrorism agent. B. pseudomallei has been studied by the United States as a potential bioweapon in the past.

1 88

In addition to military experiments conducted at the Lugar Center in Georgia, Battelle has previously produced bioterrorist agents at the top-secret NBACC Level 4 Biosafety Laboratory at Fort Detrick in the United States. An NBACC presentation lists 16 research priorities for the lab.

Among them, the characterization of classical, emerging and genetically modified pathogens for their potential BTA (biological threat agent); assessing the nature of non-traditional, novel, and non-endemic disease induction from potential BTAs and expanding aerosol challenge testing capability for non-human primates.

Pentagon Biolabs at the epicenter of the Ebola crisis

The American company Metabiota Inc. has obtained $18,4 million federal contracts under the Pentagon's DTRA program in Georgia and Ukraine for scientific and technical advisory services.

Metabiota's services include global biological threat field research, pathogen discovery, outbreak response and clinical trials.

Metabiota Inc. had been contracted by the Pentagon to perform work for the DTRA before and during the Ebola crisis in West Africa and received $ 3,1 million (2012-2015) for works in Sierra Leone - one of the countries at the epicenter of the Ebola epidemic.

1 7

Metabiota worked on a Pentagon project at the epicenter of the Ebola crisis, where three US Biolabs are located.

2 26

A report from July 17, 2014, written by the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium, accused Metabiota Inc. of failing to honor an existing agreement on how to report test results and of bypassing the Sierra Leonean scientists working there.

The report also raises the possibility that Metabiota is growing blood cells in its lab, which the report says is dangerous, and misdiagnosing healthy patients. All of these claims have been denied by Metabiota.

Military experiments on biting insects

Entomological warfare is a type of biological warfare that uses insects to transmit disease. The Pentagon reportedly carried out such entomological tests in Georgia and Russia.

Biting flies in Georgia

In 2014, the Lugar Center was equipped with an insect facility and started a project called "Sand Fly Barcoding Awareness in Georgia and the Caucasus". The project covered a wider geographical area outside of Georgia - Caucasus. In 2014-2015, species of sandflies were collected under another project "Surveillance work on acute febrile illnesses" and all sandflies (females) were tested for their infectivity rate. A third project, also including the collection of sand flies, studied the characteristics of their salivary glands.

As a result, Tbilisi has been infested with biting flies since 2015. These biting insects live indoors, in bathrooms, all year round, which was not the typical behavior of these species in Georgia before (normally, the sandfly season in Georgia is exceptionally short - June through September).

Residents complain of being bitten by these newly appeared flies while they are naked in their bathroom. They also have strong cold hardiness and can survive even in sub-zero temperatures in the mountains.

Biting flies in Dagestan, Russia

Since the start of the Pentagon project in 2014, flies similar to those in Georgia have appeared in neighboring Dagestan (Russia). According to local people, they sting and cause rashes. Their breeding habitats are house drains.

Flies of the sandfly family carry dangerous parasites in their saliva which they transmit to humans through a bite. The disease these flies carry is of great interest to the Pentagon. In 2003, during the American invasion of Iraq, American soldiers were badly bitten by sandflies and contracted leishmaniasis. This disease originated in Iraq and Afghanistan and, if left untreated, the acute form of leishmaniasis can be fatal.

A 1967 U.S. Army report titled "Arthropods of medical importance in Asia and the European USSR" (Arthropods of medical importance in Asia and European USSR) lists all local insects, their distribution and the diseases they carry. Biting flies, which live in sewers, are also mentioned in this document. Their natural habitat , however, is found in the Philippines, not Georgia or Russia.

Operation Whitecoat: Infected flies tested to bite humans

1 92 182x300

In 1970 and 1972, sand fly fever tests were performed on humans, according to a declassified US Army report - US Army Activities in the US, Biological Warfare Programs, 1977, vol. II, p. 203. During Operation Whitecoat, volunteers were exposed to the bites of infected sand flies. Operation Whitecoat was a biodefense medical research program conducted by the U.S. Army at Fort Detrick, Maryland between 1954 and 1973.

Despite the official shutdown of the US biological weapons program, theUSAMRIID carried out in 1982 an experiment aimed at determining whether sand flies and mosquitoes could be vectors of Rift Valley virus, dengue fever, chikungunya and eastern equine encephalitis - viruses the U.S. military was studying for their potential as bioweapons.

Killer insects

The Pentagon has long used insects as disease vectors. According a partially declassified US Army report from 1981, American scientists specializing in biological warfare have conducted a number of experiments on insects. These operations were part of the American entomological warfare under the United States biological weapons program.

The Pentagon: How to kill 625 people at a cost of just $000 per death

A 1981 U.S. Army report compares two scenarios - 16 simultaneous attacks on a city by A. aegypti mosquitoes, infected with yellow fever, and an attack by tularemia aerosol, and assesses their effectiveness in terms of cost and losses.

Parts of the 1981 U.S. Army report, such as the "mass production of Aedes Aegypti", have not been declassified, which could mean the project is still ongoing..

The Aedes Aegypti, also known as the yellow fever mosquito, has been widely used in US military operations. The same species of mosquito would be the vector of dengue fever, chikungunya and the Zika virus, which causes genetic malformations in newborns.

Operation Bellweather

The U.S. Army Chemical Research and Development Command, Biological Weapons Branch studied the biting activity of outdoor mosquitoes in several field tests at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, in 1960. Virgin female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which had been starved, were tested on troops in the open.

Military Experiments with Mosquitoes and Tropical Ticks in Georgia

Such species of mosquitoes and fleas (studied in the past under the US entomological warfare program) have also been collected in Georgia and tested at the Lugar Center.

As part of the DTRA project "Viruses and other arboviruses in Georgia", in 2014, the tropical mosquito Aedes albopictus, never seen before, was first detected and after decades (60 years), the existence of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito was confirmed in Western Georgia.

1 94

Aedes albopictus is a vector of many viral pathogens, yellow fever virus, dengue, chikungunya and Zika.

These tropical Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes, never seen before in Georgia, have also been detected in neighboring Russia (Krasnodar) and Turkey. According data provided by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, their spread is unusual for this part of the world.

1 13 768x501

Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes were distributed only in Georgia, southern Russia and northern Turkey. They were first detected in 2014 after the start of the Pentagon program at the Lugar Center.

1 14 768x501

As part of another DTRA project "Epidemiology and ecology of tularemia in Georgia" (2013-2016), 6148 land ticks were collected; 5871 were collected from cattle and 1310 fleas and 731 ticks were captured. In 2016, 21.590 additional ticks were collected and studied at the Lugar Center.

Anthrax outbreak in Georgia and NATO human trials

In 2007, Georgia ended its policy compulsory annual vaccination of cattle against anthrax. As a result, the disease's morbidity rate peaked in 2013. In the same year, NATO began human anthrax vaccine trials at the Lugar Center in Georgia.

1 95

In 2007, despite the anthrax epidemic, the Georgian government ended compulsory vaccination for 7 years. In 2013, NATO began human trials of a new anthrax vaccine in Georgia.

1 15

Pentagon research on Russian anthrax

Anthrax is one of the biological agents used as a weapon by the US military in the past. Despite the Pentagon's claims that its program is purely defensive, there is evidence to the contrary. In 2016, at the Lugar Center, American scientists conducted research on the "genomic sequence of the Soviet/Russian vaccine strain of Bacillus anthracis 55-VNIIVViM“, which were funded by the US Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Cooperative Biological Engagement Program in Tbilisi, and administered by Metabiota (the US contractor under the Pentagon program in Georgia).

In 2017, DTRA funded further research - Ten Genome Sequences of Human and Livestock Isolates of Bacillus anthracis from the Country of Georgia, which were performed by USAMRU-G at the Lugar Center.

34 people intentionally infected with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CHF) in Georgia

Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CHF) is caused by infection with a tick-borne virus (Nairovirus). The disease was first characterized in Crimea in 1944 and given the name Crimean hemorrhagic fever. It was later recognized later in 1969 as the cause of the disease in the Congo, hence the current name of the disease.

In 2014, 34 people were infected (including a 4-year-old child) with FCHC. 3 of them died. In the same year, Pentagon biologists studied the virus in Georgia as part of the DTRA project "Epidemiology of Febrile Diseases Caused by Dengue Viruses and Other Arboviruses in Georgia". The project included testing patients with symptoms of fever and collecting ticks, as possible vectors of CCHV for laboratory analysis.

The cause of the CCHF outbreak in Georgia is still unknown. According to the report from the local veterinary department, only one tick among all the species collected from the infected villages tested positive for the disease. Despite claims by local authorities that the virus was transmitted to humans from animals, all blood samples from the animals were also negative. The lack of ticks and infected animals is inexplicable given the sharp increase in human cases of CCHF in 2014, meaning the outbreak was unnatural and the virus was intentionally spread.

In 2016, another 21 ticks were collected for the DNA database for future studies at the Lugar Center as part of the Pentagon Project"Assessment of seroprevalence and genetic diversity of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (VCHC) and hantaviruses in Georgia".

A military biological laboratory is blamed for a deadly outbreak of CCHF in Afghanistan.

237 cases of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (HCF) have also been reported across Afghanistan, of which 41 were fatal as of December 2017. According to the Afghan Ministry of Health, most cases have been recorded in the capital Kabul, where 71 cases have been reported, including 13 fatalities, and in the province of Herat, near the border with Iran (67 cases).

Afghanistan is one of 25 countries in the world to have Pentagon biological laboratories on its territory. The project in Afghanistan is part of the US bio-defense program - Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), which is funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). DTRA contractors, working at the Lugar Center in Georgia, CH2M Hill and Battelle have also been hired for the program in Afghanistan. CH2M Hill was awarded a contract to 10,4 million (2013-2017). Pentagon contractors in Afghanistan and Georgia are the same, just like the diseases that spread among the local population in both countries.

Why the Pentagon collects and studies bats

Bats are the reservoir hosts of the Ebola virus, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and other deadly diseases. However, the precise modes of transmission of these viruses to humans are currently unknown.. Many studies have been carried out as part of DTRA's Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), searching for deadly pathogens of military significance in bats.

1 97

221 bats were euthanized at the Lugar Center for research purposes in 2014.

Screenshot 1 25 768x307

Bats were blamed for the deadly Ebola outbreak in Africa (2014-2016). However, no conclusive proof of exactly how the virus "jumped" in humans has ever been provided, raising suspicions of intentional and unnatural infection.

Handling deadly viruses is legal in the US

MERS-CoV is believed to originate from bats and is transmitted directly to humans and/or camels. However, as with the Ebola virus, it is not known how the virus spreads precisely.

1 cases with 980 deaths have been reported in 699 countries around the world (as of June 15) caused by MERS-CoV.

Screenshot 2 5 768x312

3 to 4 out of 10 patients reported to have MERS have died. Source: WHO

MERS-CoV is one of the viruses that was made by the United States and studied by the Pentagon, along with influenza and SARS. Confirmation of this practice is the temporary ban by Obama, in 2014, government funding of this "dual use" research. The moratorium was lifted in 2017 and the experiments continued.

Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogen (PPP) experiments are legal in the United States. These experiments aim to increase the transmissibility and/or virulence of pathogens.

Tularemia as a biological weapon

Tularemia, also known as rabbit fever, is classified as a bioterrorism agent and was developed in the past as such by the United States. However, Pentagon research into tularemia continues, as well as possible vectors of the bacteria, such as ticks and rodents that cause the disease..

The DTRA has initiated a number of projects on tularemia as well as other particularly dangerous pathogens in Georgia. Especially dangerous pathogens (EDP), or selective agents, represent a major public health concern worldwide.

These highly pathogenic agents have the potential to be weaponized, as evidenced by the following Pentagon projects, which demonstrate their military importance: Epidemiology and Ecology of Tularemia in Georgia (2013-2016) (60.000 vectors were collected for isolates of strains and genomic research); Epidemiology of human tularemia in Georgia and Epidemiology of human diseases and surveillance of particularly dangerous pathogens in Georgia (study of selective agents among patients with undifferentiated fever and hemorrhagic fever/septic shock).

The US military program is sensitive information

Ukraine has no control over military biological laboratories located on its own territory. According to the 2005 agreement between the US Department of Defense and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, the Ukrainian government is prohibited from publicly disclosing sensitive information about the US program and Ukraine is required to transfer dangerous pathogens for biological research to the United States Department of Defense (DoD).

The Pentagon has been granted access to certain state secrets of Ukraine as part of the projects under their agreement.

Biological warfare scientists under diplomatic cover

Among the set of bilateral agreements between the United States and Ukraine is the creation of the Center for Science and Technology in Ukraine (STCU), an international organization funded mainly by the United States government and which has been granted diplomatic.

The STCU officially supports the projects of scientists who participated in the Soviet biological weapons program. Over the past 20 years, the STCU has invested over 285 million in funding and managing some 1 projects by scientists who have worked to develop weapons of mass destruction.

364 Ukrainians have died from swine flu

One of the Pentagon's laboratories is located in Kharkiv, where in January 2016 at least 20 Ukrainian soldiers died of the flu virus in just two days and another 200 were hospitalized. The Ukrainian government did not report Ukrainian soldiers who died in Kharkiv.

In March 2016, 364 deaths were reported across Ukraine (81,3% caused by swine flu A(H1N1)pdm09 – the same strain that caused the global pandemic in 2009).

Police are investigating an infection with an incurable disease

A highly suspicious hepatitis A infection quickly spread within months in southeastern Ukraine, where most of the Pentagon's biolaboratories are located.

37 people were hospitalized for hepatitis A in the Ukrainian town of Mykolaiv in January 2018. Local police opened an investigation for "human immunodeficiency virus infection and other incurable diseases". Three years ago, more than 100 people in the same city were infected with cholera. Both diseases are believed to have spread through contaminated drinking water.

During the summer of 2017, 60 people with hepatitis A were admitted to hospital in the city of Zaporizhia, the cause of this epidemic is still unknown.

In the Odessa region, 19 children from an orphanage were hospitalized with hepatitis A in June 2017.

29 cases of hepatitis A were reported in Kharkiv in November 2017. The virus was isolated from contaminated drinking water. One of the Pentagon's bio-laboratories is located in Kharkiv, which was implicated in the deadly flu epidemic that claimed the lives of 364 Ukrainians a year ago.

Ukraine and Russia hit by new highly virulent cholera infection

In 2011, Ukraine was hit by a cholera epidemic. 33 patients were reportedly hospitalized for severe diarrhoea. A second epidemic hit the country in 2014: more than 800 people across Ukraine are believed to have contracted the disease. In 2015, at least 100 new cases were recorded in the city of Mykolaiv alone.

According to one genetic study carried out in 2014 by the Russian Research Anti-Plaque Institute, the cholera strain isolated in Moscow was similar to the bacteria that caused the outbreak in neighboring Ukraine.

Southern Research Institute, one of the US contractors working in the biological labs in Ukraine, has projects on cholera, as well as influenza and Zika - all pathogens of military importance to the Pentagon.

In addition to the Southern Research Institute, two other private American companies manage military biological laboratories in Ukraine: Black & Veatch and Metabiota.

1 24

Black & Veatch Special Project Corp. obtained $198,7 million DTRA contracts to build and operate bio-laboratories in Ukraine (under two 5-year contracts in 2008 and 2012 for a total of $128,5 million), as well as in Germany, Azerbaijan, Cameroon, Thailand, Ethiopia, Vietnam and Armenia.

Metabiota was awarded a federal contract to 18,4 million under this program in Georgia and Ukraine. This American company was also contracted to carry out work for the DTRA before and during the Ebola crisis in West Africa, the company received $ 3,1 million (2012-2015) for works in Sierra Leone.

Southern Research Institute has been a prime contractor for the DTRA program in Ukraine since 2008. The company has also been a prime contractor to the Pentagon in the past under the US Biological Weapons Program for research and development of bio-agents with 16 contracts between 1951 and 1962.

The Southern Research Institute has lobbied the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Department of State for "matters related to research and development for U.S. intelligence" and "defence-related research and development". Lobbying activities coincided with the start of Pentagon projects on bio-laboratories in Ukraine and other former Soviet states.

The company paid $250 to lobby then-Senator Jeff Sessions in 000-2008 (currently United States Attorney General appointed by Donald Trump) when the institute secured a number of federal contracts.

Over a 10-year period (2006-2016), the Southern Research Institute paid $1,28 million for lobbying the US Senate, House of Representatives, State Department, and Department of Defense ( DoD). Senator Jeff Sessions' aide on Capitol Hill - Watson Donald, is now a senior director of the Southern Research Institute.

Police investigate botulinum toxin poisoning in Ukraine

115 cases of botulism, including 12 deaths, were reported in Ukraine in 2016.

1 26 407x300

In 2017, the Ukrainian Ministry of Health confirmed 90 additional new cases, with 8 deaths, of botulinum toxin poisoning (one of the most toxic biological substances known). According to local health authorities, the cause of the outbreak was food poisoning on which Police opened an investigation.

Ukrainian government stopped supplying antitoxin in 2014 and no stock botulism vaccine was available during the 2016-2017 outbreak.

Botulism is a rare and extremely dangerous disease caused by a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

One gram of this toxin can kill up to a million people.

1 102

Botulinum neurotoxin poses a major threat to biological weapons due to its extreme potency, ease of production and transport. It causes muscle paralysis, respiratory failure and ultimately death if not treated immediately. A single gram of evenly dispersed and inhaled crystal toxin can kill over a million people. It can be disseminated by aerosol, or by contamination of water and/or food.

The Pentagon produces live viruses, bacteria and toxins.

Botulinum toxin has been tested as a bioweapon by the US military in the past, along with anthrax, brucella, and tularemia. Although the US biological weapons program officially ended in 1969, documents show that military experiments never stopped. Currently, the Pentagon is producing and testing live biological agents at the same military facility as in the past - Dugway Proving Ground.

Aerosol experiments with botulinum neurotoxin and anthrax

Documents prove that the US military produces, possesses and tests aerosols of the world's deadliest toxin - botulinum neurotoxin. In 2014, the Department of the Army purchased 100 mg of botulinum toxin to Metabiologics for testing at Dugway Proving Ground.

The experiments date back to 2007, when an unspecified amount of toxin was supplied to the Department of the Army by the same company - Metabiologics. According to the West Desert Test Center 2012 report, the military installation is testing with botulinum neurotoxin aerosol, as well as anthrax aerosol, Yersinia pestis, and Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEE).

The US Army report lists numerous dissemination techniques, including bio-aerosol sprayers. Such sprayers, called Micronair diffusers, have already been developed by the US military and tested at Dugway Proving Ground. According to the documents, they can be mounted on a vehicle or carried like a backpack, with a pump system that can be installed on the unit to increase the accuracy of the release. Micronair sprayers can release 50-500ml bio-liquid simulant per minute from 12 liter tanks.

The United States stole bacteria from Saddam Hussein's biological weapons factory.

Bacillus thuringiensis is a pathogenic insect widely used as a bio-pesticide. B. thuringiensis (BT) Al Hakam was collected in Iraq by the United Nations Special Commission led by the United States in 2003. It is named after Al-Hakam - Iraq's biological weapons production facility.

In addition to Pentagon field tests, this bacterium is also used in the United States for the production of genetically modified maize, resistant to pests. Photos released by the CIA prove that the bacteria was collected by the United States in Iraq. According to the CIA, the vials containing the bio-pesticide were recovered from the home of an Al-Hakam scientist.

CIA: A total of 97 vials - including those bearing labels consistent with Al-Hakam's cover stories of single-cell proteins and bio-pesticides, as well as strains that could be used to produce biological agents - have were recovered from a scientist's residence in Iraq in 2003.

The tests are conducted at Kirtland Air Force Base (Kirtland is home to the Air Force Materiel Command's nuclear weapons center). Weapons are tested there, which means that field tests with biological simulants (bacteria) are also part of this group.

DTRA's contractor for this project, the Lovelace Biomedical and Environmental Research Institute (LBERI), operates an Animal Biosafety Level 3 (ABSL-3) laboratory that has Selective Agent status. The facility is designed to conduct bioaerosol studies. The company got a 5-year contract for field tests with biological simulants at Kirtland Air Force Base.

Field tests with biological simulants (bacteria)

What the Pentagon is doing now is exactly what it has done in the past, which means its bioweapons program has never been halted.. The U.S. military conducted 27 field tests with such biological simulants, involving the public domain from 1949 to 1968, when President Nixon officially announced the end of the program.

Field trials in Chechnya

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which manages the US military program at the Lugar Center in Georgia, reportedly already conducted field tests with an unknown substance in Chechnya, Russia. In the spring of 2017, local citizens report the presence of a drone spreading white powder near the Russian border with Georgia. Neither Georgian Border Police nor US personnel operating at the Georgia-Russia border have commented on this information.

A $9,2 million US military project on the Russian-Georgian border

The DTRA has full access to the Russian-Georgian border, granted under a military program called "Georgia Land Border Security Project“. Activities related to this project have been outsourced to a private US company – Parsons Government Services International. DTRA has previously contracted with Parsons for similar border security projects in Lebanon, Jordan, Libya and Syria. Parsons got a $ 9,2 million contract as part of the Pentagon Border Security Project on the Russia-Georgia border.

US Defense Agency tests GM insects to transmit GM viruses

The Pentagon has invested at least $65 million in gene editing. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded 7 research teams to develop genome engineering tools in insects, rodents and bacteria within the framework from DARPA's Safe Gene Program, using a new CRISPR-Cas9 technology.

As part of another military program -Insect Allies, genetically modified insects are manipulated to transfer modified genes to plants. DARPA's $10,3 million project involves both gene editing in insects and in the viruses they transmit. The engineering of ecological niche preference is a third ongoing military program for genome engineering in insects. The stated goal of the Pentagon is to engineer genetically modified organisms so that they can withstand certain temperatures, change habitats and food sources.

Genetically modified humans

Besides modifying the genes of insects and the viruses they transmit, the Pentagon also wants to modify humans.

The DARPA Advanced Tools for Mammalian Genome Engineering project seeks to create a biological platform inside the human body, use it to deliver new genetic information, and thus modify humans at the DNA level..

1 104 487x300

DARPA wants to insert an additional 47th artificial chromosome into human cells. This chromosome will deliver new genes that will be used for engineering the human body. SynPloid Biotek LLC was awarded two contracts under this program for a total amount of $1,1 million (2015-2016 - 100.600 dollars for the first phase of research; 2015-2017 - 999.300 dollars for work that is not specified in the register of federal contracts. The company has only two employees and has no track record in organic research.

Top secret synthetic virus research

Between 2008 and 2014, the United States invested approximately $820 million in synthetic biology research, with Defense being one of the main contributors. A large proportion of military synthetic biology projects are classified, including a number ofclassified studies by the secretive JASON group of US military advisers - for example, Emerging Viruses and Genome Editing for the Pentagon, and Synthetic Viruses for the National Counterterrorism Center.

JASON is an independent scientific advisory group that provides advisory services to the US government on defense science and technology issues. It was created in 1960 and most of the resulting JASON reports are classified. For administrative purposes, JASON projects are managed by the MITER Corporation, which has contracts with the Department of Defense, the CIA and the FBI. Since 2014, MITER has been awarded some $27,4 million in contracts with the DoD.

Although the JASON reports are classified, another US Air Force study titled Biotechnology: Genetically Engineered Pathogens, sheds some light on what the secret group JASON has been researching - 5 groups of genetically engineered pathogens that can be used as bio-weapons. These are binary biological weapons (lethal combination of two viruses), host-swap diseases (animal viruses that "jump" to humans, such as the Ebola virus), stealth viruses and diseases of conception. Designer diseases can be designed to target a certain ethnic group, meaning they can be used as ethnic bioweapons.

Ethnic biological weapons

An ethnic biological weapon (biogenetic weapon) is a theoretical weapon that is intended to primarily harm people of specific ethnicities or genotypes.

Although the research and development of ethnic biological weapons has never been officially confirmed, documents show that the United States collects biological material from certain ethnic groups - Russians and Chinese.

The United States Air Force collected Russian RNA and synovial tissue samples, which raised fears in Moscow of a secret ethnic bioweapons program.

In addition to the Russians, the United States took biological material on healthy people and cancer patients in China. The National Cancer Institute collected biological samples from 300 subjects from Linxian, Zhengzhou and Chengdu in China. Another federal project, titled Serum Metabolic biomarkers discovery study of Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma in China, involves the analysis of 349 serum samples taken from Chinese patients.

The Chinese biological material was collected through a series of federal projects, including saliva and cancerous tissue. Among these, genotyping of DNA samples from lymphoma cases and controls (healthy patients), breast cancer tissue blocks from breast cancer patients, samples of saliva of 50 families having 3 or more cases of UGI cancer, Genotyping of 50 SNPs for DNA samples from Beijing Cancer Hospital, the genotypes of 3000 gastric cancer cases and 3000 controls (healthy patients) in Beijing.

Tobacco vaccines

How the Pentagon helped tobacco companies profit from Ebola

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has invested $100 million in producing vaccines from tobacco plants.

The companies involved in the project belong to the largest American tobacco companies: Mediacago Inc. is owned by Philip Morris and Kentucky BioProcessing, a subsidiary of Reynolds American, which is owned by British American Tobacco. They are currently producing flu and Ebola vaccines from tobacco plants.

The $100 million Blue Angel program was launched in response to the H1N1 flu pandemic in 2009. Medicago received $21 million to produce 10.000 million doses of a flu vaccine in one month.

Dr. John Julias, Blue Angel Program Manager, explains: "Although multiple plant species and other organisms are being studied as alternative platforms for protein production, the US government has continued to invest in tobacco-based manufacturing."

The plant-based vaccine production method works by isolating a specific antigen protein that triggers a human immune response from the targeted virus. A gene for this protein is transferred to a bacterium, which is used to infect plants. The plants then begin to produce the protein that will be used for vaccinations.

It is unclear exactly why the Pentagon chose to invest in vaccines produced from tobacco plants over all the other plant species it has explored. Medicago, co-owned by Philip Morris, paid 495.000 dollars to lobby the Department of Defense, Congress, and the Department of Health and Human Services for "funds to advance technology to support public health preparedness applications." The Pentagon funded tobacco companies to develop new technologies and profit from vaccines.

Biological experiments are war crimes

Article 8 of Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) defines biological experiments as war crimes. The United States, however, is not part of the international treaty and cannot be held responsible for its war crimes.
