Ukraine's Biolabs: Threat To Russia Or Russia’s Baseless Worry?

Illustrative Image

The US military still refuse to provide relevant information on the nature of these “biological research facilities”.

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst.

Although biological warfare is prohibited under international humanitarian law and several international treaties, the presence of US-funded “biological research facilities” in Ukraine, as the US State Department officially describes them, raises serious concerns of possible use of these banned pathogens. This raises the question on whether these biolabs are a threat to Russia or Russian disinformation.

The 1972 Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) banned the development, production, acquisition, transfer, stockpiling and use of biological weapons. Thus, any misuse of dangerous biological agents and pathogens is universally considered a war crime.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, which claims it has come into the possession of original documents from these “biological research facilities”, the US government has provided funding for laboratories in the cities of Kiev, Odessa, Lvov and Kharkov that are officially run by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. Documents which have already been investigated show that at least $32 million were invested in these “research facilities”, although actual funding is suspected to be in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars.

A document dated to March 6, 2015 reportedly confirms the participation of the Pentagon in the “financing of bioweapons projects” in at least 30 laboratories all across Ukraine.

Existence of actual biological research facilities is not worrying per se, since most countries operate such laboratories, including in other countries, especially those which are known as possible epidemic hotspots. However, these facilities are exclusively run by the official public health institutions of various countries and international organizations.

In Ukraine however, the claimed “biological research facilities” are run by the military (officially by the Armed Forces of Ukraine) and financed by the Pentagon. As far as we are aware, public health does not come under the jurisdiction of armed forces, because this duty is relegated to public health authorities. Thus, the findings should raise serious concerns for all of Ukraine’s neighbors and not only Russia, as they can be directly exposed to any pathogen leaks.

Ukraine's Biolabs: Threat To Russia Or Russia’s Baseless Worry?

While the U.S. Department of Defense maintains that its massive biological research programs are meant to counter and defend against new biological weapons being developed, they are in fact developing bio-weapons in the process.

It should be noted that for over two years, the planet has suffered tremendously due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Minimizing the risk of future pandemics is a top priority as the repercussions of simultaneous health crises could lead to unprecedented devastation.

For their part, US government officials are adamant that the “biological research facilities” were used only for “research and defensive purposes” and that Russia is “engaged in disinformation“. However, at the same time, the officials “expressed concern” that Russia “might use these biological materials to cause harm to civilians”. It stands to reason that such statements are extremely worrying because if the “biological materials” do not pose a hazard to civilians when in US or Ukrainian hands, shouldn’t the same be true for Russia and other neighboring countries?

This suggests that US officials aren’t truthful in their disclosure of the actual purpose of these “biological research facilities”. Although the US remains disingenuous about the purpose of these laboratories, it is none-the-less disturbing and dangerous that these biolabs are placed so close to Russia’s borders. It gives a strong impression that whatever research is occurring in the biolabs, it is at least partially with aims of being hostile to Russia.

As noted, according to established practice, when projects in the field of sanitary and epidemiological research are conducted in other countries, actual research facilities are financed through national health authorities of the respective countries or by another interested party or organization. In this regard, public health institutions are required to inform the public of the research being conducted in such facilities. However, this was not the case for the Ukrainian “biological research facilities”.

According to respected Bulgarian investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, Ukrainian facilities were off limits, even to Ukrainian authorities, unless a special US permit was acquired. Gaytandzhieva noted that “Ukraine rejected proposals for public control of Pentagon-funded biolabs.”

“While Pentagon contractors were given full access to all biolabs involved in the DTRA program, independent experts were denied such access under the pretext that these biolabs were working with especially dangerous pathogens. According to a leaked letter, Ukraine’s Ministry of Health denied experts from the scientific journal ‘Problems of innovation and investment development’ access to the Pentagon-funded biolaboratories. The ministry rejected the proposal made by the scientific journal and did not allow independent public control group of experts to supervise these biolaboratories”, Gaytandzhieva claims.

Even in the case that these “biological research facilities” are as harmless as the US and its allies claim, it does not negate the fact that international experts are prohibited from visiting and confirming US claims. The US still refuses to declassify and provide relevant information on the nature of these “biological research facilities”, which are estimated to number at least 336 laboratories around the globe. One can’t just help but think that the US is trying to engage in a major coverup.

Putin is a Joke

Putin dies and goes to hell. Some years later he is allowed to go back to earth for one day. He goes to Moscow, enters a bar and orders a drink, he then asks… “Is Crimea ours?” “Yes it is ours” “And Donbas?” “Ours” “And Kiev?” Ours “Well done.. how much do I owe you? “5 euro”

G2 man

This conflict goes far beyond Putin, so blaming him is pointless. The NATO hyenas had been provoking Russia for a long time and any Russian nationalistic leader would have acted, perhaps even more forcefully. You trolls need to think before posting repetitive superfluous hyperbole.

Martin

Their ignorance of the facts are embarrassing. This war is 8 years old with 14k deaths mainly civilians killed from artillery deliberately fired into residential areas. That before all the support from American NATO supplying weapons and training during those 8 years. Disgusts me how so quickly the lying MSM convinced people who couldn’t think for themselves .

G2 man

$12 billion worth of NATO arms were pushed into Ukraine and over 85,000 Nazis and terrorists “trained” in Poland and Romania since 2008. Russia is basically fighting NATO .

Won already?

Yes, from Finland to China. 5 Hryvnias please

I’m more interested in bio labs that also used electronics… Just to know at what frequency these iron particles are activated injected into 6 billion people.. I even think they will use more frequencies at the same time to get a ressonance effect..

G2 man

There is no question that Ukraine is being turned into a NBC and terrorist base for operations against Russia and has a number of biowarfare labs. That is why it is imperative that Russia finish the job no matter what the cost.

The Objective

Why are there US biolabs in Kazakhstan and Vietnam? I can understand African countries and Ukraine they are colonies. But the latter two isn’t.

helen

In the last decades, Vietnam has grown apart from Russia, while enjoys good relations with the USA, so it’s understandable.

What’s disconcerting is the country of Kazakhstan because it shares a huge border with Russia and has many ethnic Russians and mixed citizens. I had noticed that many USA/UK-sponsored organizations operate there (their most recent work: the almost-revolution of Jan ’22), and pointing out at the apocryphal design of its new capital some conspiracists had suggested that the NWO has chosen it as its new base because Eurasia was going to be the new center of the world. Indeed, the country has thrived since then, and it’s set as a goal to be among the 30 counties with largest GDP by 2050.

A RAND report had also listed among a set of effective tools to contain Russia: “reduce Russian infuence in Central Asia”. If the sanctions continue, this is going to happen anyway.

Each of them should be hit with a tactical nuke tipped cruise missile. Every single one.

“It should be noted that for over two years, the planet has suffered tremendously due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

That sentence should be corrected to read: “the planet has suffered tremendously due to governmental reactions to a fake pandemic.”

Anyway the US and/or NATO has zero credibility. Everything they say is a lie and if a grain of truth is found it is only there because it serves their evil narrative.

The US likes to ignore the fact that the most populated countries of the world are now realising that the US/UK Israel are the origin of Biological Holy Grail research that has always been to create a bio weapon that will infect targetted ethnic groups.

The blowback from such weapons is impossible to control when multi-racial half breeds etc are bought into the equation.

No, but you can control who you inject, the white people, and who not, the Central Africans and Ashkenazis… So we are looking at these labs, and already 6 bilion people have been selected injected…

Tell me, what do you actually think about your audience? You think our brain was amputated? “covid” is an atrocious crime against humanity by the organizers. But the good thing about the plandemic is that many people have now realized that there is no such thing as “viruses”. And so it is also clear that there can be no threat from so-called “biolabs”. If one considers now still that also nuclear weapons do not exist, a very interesting perspective results here!

No, you can inject people with iron particles and fry their brain with 5G..

Baseless? NO. This thing about biolabs has been going on for about 20 years. First it was Georgia, where there were ( 10 years ago ) 2 biolabs. The female journalist who tried to investigate was arrested and threatened again and again.

However she was able to collect a lot of evidence, from photos of american employees going in and out of these biolabs, to the activities regarding the collection on slavic DNA. The interesting fact is that the head of the operation was/is a doctor known in the USA as akin to Mengele.

When the evidence linking covid-19 the CIA and US biolabs in china to the release of the word wide pandemic is found not even the US propaganda machine will not be able to protect the Satanic globalists responsible for the pandemic.
