Virus attack

Is the planet facing a biological apocalypse

The terrible scenario of the destruction of all life on Earth due to experiments with bacteriological weapons is still more reminiscent of the plot of a Hollywood horror film. However, the reality is that the collective West, has crossed the line between terrible fiction and reality in order to maintain its dominance over the rest of the world. This facet was the boundless activity of the United States after the collapse of the USSR to create biological laboratories around the world, and primarily around its key competitors — Russia and China.

Guinea pigs

For a long time, these Pentagon programmes remained unnoticed, latent, and no one spoke about them out loud. Meanwhile, Washington constantly increased allocations for the creation of a network of clandestine laboratories on the territory of the ‘occupied states’ (where the ‘velvet revolutions’ took place and the government became pro-Western). Thus, according to the Russian side, the United States has located about 46 biological laboratories on the territory of Ukraine. After the start of the special military operation, in mid-March 2022, the Russian Ministry of Defence stated that the department had at its disposal documents on ‘the implementation of military-biological programmes of the United States and its NATO allies on the territory of Ukraine’, including the study of the bird flu virus.
Then the Ukrainian authorities, led by Zelensky, and US representatives tried to distance themselves from these accusations. The subsequent collection of evidence of US involvement in such biological activity forced Washington to urgently close down all its laboratories and move them to other countries. On November 13th, the head of the radiation, chemical and biological defenсe forces of the Russian Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, said that the activities of the Russian Ministry of Defenсe helped stop the implementation of US military biological programmes in Ukraine. This has led to Washington now being concerned about transferring unfinished research to the countries of Central Asia and Eastern Europe.
Earlier, Igor Kirillov reported that the American authorities were interested in information about the activities of Prestige Biotech, data about which was published by the Russian Ministry of Defence. Then, as a matter of form, the official White House initiated an investigation into the possible use of dangerous biomaterials. It is clear that the investigative actions led nowhere.
The US government began to act more cautiously after the first leaks of information about the Pentagon’s involvement in biological research. Now research into dangerous pathogens for military purposes has begun to be carried out at the request of civilian departments. For example, customers were the US Department of Health, the Agency for International Development, and even the Department of Energy.
In July 2022, the Russian Ministry of Defence reported that researchers used various categories of Ukrainian citizens, including local military personnel, as ‘guinea pigs’.

Deadly experiments

Why did the US even do this? Igor Kirillov gave the answer, “The first and most important goal for them is to manage the situation, and the second goal is to make money by displacing competitors.”
The use of biological weapons to destroy the population of the main countries — competitors of the Anglo-Saxon world inevitably leads to a sharp weakening of the socio-economic conditions for the development of the state. The country is forced to spend enormous financial resources on diagnosing the disease, treating it and rehabilitating patients. 
In addition, the ‘infected society’ is easily susceptible to any psychological and information manipulation: it tends to fall into a state of panic and inappropriate, unpredictable behaviour (there are many examples during the COVID-19 period).
In August 2023, the Russian Embassy in Washington openly accused the United States of spreading biological laboratories around the world, building up the perimeter of Russia’s borders with them to create artificial foci of infections. The embassy added that ‘the Pentagon’s activities in Ukraine are of particular concern. The United States has involved dozens of government institutions and private companies in the country in its projects’.
In March of this year, the parliamentary commission of the State Duma of the Russian Federation to investigate the activities of US biological laboratories in Ukraine approved its final report. The investigation began a year ago. 
The commission received full confirmation that it was NATO military facilities that were created in Ukraine, which were disguised as scientific activities.
Despite the public coverage of the facts of illegal activities, the States did not calm down: in November 2023, it became known that the Americans were going to locate a biological laboratory in the Norwegian Arctic zone — on Bear Island, a few hours by water from Murmansk.
In response to these messages, a member of the State Duma Defence Committee, Lieutenant General Andrei Gurulev, said that Russian scientists should develop biological weapons ‘that will only act on the Anglo-Saxons’. He assured that Russia is already taking measures to protect against biological weapons, in particular, ‘anti-plague stations are being massively built and modernised. This is a defencive component, but in such a situation we also need a strike component — one that will allow us to use the same thing, only against our enemy’.
United Russia deputy Oleg Matveychev believes that the Ebola virus was developed by the United States against Africans, and bird, cow and swine flu — against other ethnic groups. The parliamentarian did not specify which ones exactly. 
LDPR leader Leonid Slutsky compared the creation of biological laboratories with the activities of the Nazis during World War II.
A number of experts believe that US biological laboratories may be involved in the mass death of seals in the Caspian Sea.
As a result of increasing pressure on Washington, they recognised the fact that COVID-related research was being conducted in biological laboratories in Ukraine. The corresponding statement was made by the coordinator for strategic communications at the White House National Security Council, John Kirby. According to him, in laboratories located on the territory of Ukraine, Ukrainian and American scientists conducted ‘research on the prevention of a pandemic’. At the same time, Kirby emphasises that we are talking exclusively about scientific activity; no research related to biological weapons (as has been repeatedly stated by the Russian Ministry of Defence) has been conducted in Ukraine.
The US State Department went further and issued a statement on the benefits of American biological laboratories, which was signed by the United States, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia, Jordan, Iraq, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Uganda and the Philippines. The Pentagon programme ostensibly aims to ‘protect the health of people and animals’ in their respective countries. 
Thus, it is clear that the United States actively invested in laboratories and used them to develop viruses capable of destroying people selectively, by race. 
Active disclosure of facts and publicising their projects led to the fact that Washington is forced to gradually curtail its programmes in the territory of post-Soviet countries. However, understanding the dependence of NATO states on the White House, the United States continues to use the territories of these countries to create a new infrastructure of biological laboratories around Russia.
