The Pentagon’s biological laboratories in Ukraine

Despite the international agreements regulating biological research activity, the US uses double standards here, as it does on chemical weapons. There is no reliable information as to what kind of research projects the US military implements, especially those related to deadly viruses, or where After the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, biological threats were used as a bogeyman for America. The incident involving the mailing of letters containing anthrax spores was blown out of proportion, turning into public hysteria.
 
That happened about a week after the attack on the World Trade Center in New York, which helped create the illusion that the two events were connected by the threat of "Islamic fundamentalism." Ten years later, in 2011, declassified FBI documents showed that the anthrax spores were created at the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. During those 10 years, the number of US laboratories, ostensibly involved in developing bioterror protection methods, has grown from 20 to 400. Secret biological centers appeared in Africa and Latin America. Bio-laboratories of unknown description were opened in Ukraine and Georgia. A biological center in Kazakhstan is due to open in 2015.
 
Most of them are supervised by the Pentagon. The US-Georgian Agreement Concerning Cooperation in the Area of Prevention of Proliferation of Technology, Pathogens and Expertise Related to the Development of Biological Weapons was signed in 2002. In 2004, a decision was made to build a “national public health reference laboratory” in the village of Alekseyevka near Tbilisi. The official opening ceremony, which took place on March 18, 2011, was attended by Andrew Weber, the assistant secretary of defense for nuclear, chemical, and biological defense programs.
 
Ukraine is of special interest for the US military in terms of biological research. Right after the victory of the first color revolution, a package agreement was signed between the Ukrainian Health Ministry and the US Department of Defense on upgrading Ukraine’s biological facilities.
 
In 2008, a plan for the provision of US assistance to the Ukrainian Health Ministry appeared, and in October 2009, a concept for the development of the Biological Threat Reduction Program was presented. The first biological center in Ukraine was established with US assistance on June 15, 2010, at the I. I. Mechnikov Anti-Plague Research Institute in Odesa. The opening ceremony was attended by US Ambassador John Tefft. The Odesa center was authorized to work with strains that are used in making biological weapons. Decentralized storage of dangerous pathogens is common practice in Ukraine.
 
Thus the question arises: Could there have been any connection between the research conducted at this center and the mass killing of people at the House of Trade Unions in Odesa on May 2, 2014? A number of local activists and media outlets said that an unknown substance had been used on that day for the purpose of mass destruction. In 2013 alone, several biological laboratories were opened in Ukraine with US assistance: in Vinnytsia, Ternopil, Uzhhogord, Kiev, Dnipropetrovsk, Simferopol, Kherson, Lviv (three laboratories in this city!) and Luhansk. At present, the Pentagon’s biological laboratories surround Russia in a semi-circle. In 2012, a biological laboratory in Azerbaijan was modernized with US assistance.
 
US plans include the establishment of similar centers in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. According to some sources, the biological center in Kazakhstan could be headed by Kanatzhan Alibekov, a former Soviet military biologist, now a US citizen, who emigrated to America in the early 1990s and passed to the Americans secret information about the Soviet Union’s military biological program. When he returned to Kazakhstan in 2010, Alibekov became the head of a department at Nazarbayev University. He is also the chairman of the board at the National Medical Holding. The target of the US efforts to create biological centers in countries neighboring Russia is evident from the following fact.
 
In 2010, the Finnish-Russian Joint Biotechnology Lab (JBL) in Turku drafted a project called TECDOBA (Trans-European Center for the Detection of Biothreat Agents). Unlike in Georgia and Ukraine, Russia was to participate in the center’s activity. The project was approved by the Finnish government. However, the project was closed soon afterward without explanation. Private sources suggested that this happened on express orders from Washington at the time when the US was preparing to open a biological laboratory in Georgia. The covert biological warfare, which has not as yet moved outside laboratories, involves not only the Pentagon and special agencies, but also corporations united in the Alliance for Biosecurity.
 
This group of companies includes Bavarian Nordic, Cangene Corporation, DOR BioPharma Inc., DynPort Vaccine Company LLC, Elusys Therapeutics Inc., Emergent BioSolutions, Hematech Inc., Human Genome Sciences Inc., NanoViricides Inc., Pfizer Inc., PharmAthene, Siga Technologies Inc. and Unither Virology LLC. All of them are part of the so-called Big Pharma. This term refers to a diversified structure where the interests of US congressmen are intertwined with the interests of the US pharmaceutical and defense industries. original publication The views expressed in this article are the author's and do not necessarily represent those of the editors.
