Incident in Salisbury helped unlock Pentagon-Porton-Down relationship

According to information received from Registry The US Federal Contracts Agency for the Reduction of Military Threat, under the leadership of the US Department of Defense, funded a number of defense projects at the Laboratory for Defense Science and Technology in Porton Down. Among them is the experimental infection of primates with anthrax, Ebola, Marburg, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, western and eastern equine encephalitis viruses. The agency also funded animal experiments in which they were poisoned with mustard gas and phosgene.

The Military Threat Agency has full access to all scientific and technical developments of the Laboratory in Porton Down, which is noted in contract from 2011 year.

Experiments involving animals are considered secret in the UK. According to the 24 chapter of the Animal Science Research Act, disclosing information about such experiments is considered a criminal offense.

According to the information obtained using the provisions Freedom of Information Act, in Porton Down, the number of military experiments with chemical and biological weapons. From 2005 to 2016 year 122 thousands of animals were infected with deadly viruses or poisoned by chemicals. The laboratory uses mice, guinea pigs, rats, piglets, ferrets, sheep and monkeys in its research.

It also became known that British military scientists received funding from the Military Threat Reduction Agency to develop a system for testing chemicals from 2012 to 2017 a year.

Experiments on the effects of toxic substances VX and VM were conducted in Porton Down in 2015 year. It is noteworthy that the guinea pigs were also found in the house of Sergey Skripal in Salisbury. A photo of Violin's pets - cats and guinea pigs - placed on his Facebook page his daughter, Julia.

Unfortunately, animal bullying is not the only crime on the Laboratory's account. In 2013, scientists from Porton Down scattered gas in the London Underground.

The British government never told its citizens about a military experiment in the London Underground. Thousands of people were poisoned by gas without knowing it, and no one asked their consent to participate in such a “study”. Data about this is obtained from document from 2016 year, stored in the British Ministry of the Interior. He talks about other programs held in the United States and the UK before 2016.

The document confirms that the scientists of the Laboratory conducted research in the metro from 2011 to 2014 a year, but does not contain data on their content and goals.

      The agency also funded experiments on animals, during which they were poisoned with mustard gas and phosgene.

    Porton Down is a military technology park in the UK located northeast of the village of Porton, near the city of Salisbury in Wiltshire. It is the seat of two government agencies: the Laboratory for Defense Science and Technology [en] ([dstl]) of the United Kingdom Department of Defense [1] and the Public Health Agency of England [en] (PHE) [2]. With a total area of ​​2 ha, the technology park is the location of a number of smaller private companies.
    This is a paragraph from Wikipedia, but taken to clarify the English name. The word down means "bottom". Well, as we have "Nizhny Vyselki" they have Nizhny Porton.
    Down Syndrome is named for the scientist.
    John Langdon Haydon Down (Eng. John Langdon Haydon Down; November 18, 1828, Torpoint Village, Cornwall, England - October 7, 1896, London) is the scientist who first described Down Syndrome and called it “Mongolism”.

    Even if some experiments with viruses and the like are carried out there, for so many years only the Skripals have become infected. If Skripal was not a traitor, but a random passer-by, then it would be possible to believe.
