In the fight against global pathogens


The pandemic of the new coronavirus infection forced us to take a fresh look at the problems of biological protection. While in the United States, Republicans seriously accuse the Wuhan Institute of Virology of creating the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the Pentagon is demanding new resources to expand the network of world biolaboratories.

In the near future, the biological weapons there will be a clear renaissance. And it's not even about its direct use on the battlefield, but about the very potential of hybrid wars. The pandemic showed that most of the states are ready for economic sacrifices in order to save the population.

Hence the painful lockdowns, movement restrictions, and closed borders. The main thing is that viruses and bacteria can not only kill civilians, but cause panic and severe economic consequences. The permanent use of such "invisible fighters" can undermine the potential of any, even the most powerful state. The use of infectious agents is becoming an excellent sabotage tool. And it seems that the United States understands this very well.

At the moment, the Americans have created a real spider network of biological laboratories around the world - since 1997, more than 30 countries have become partners of this initiative. This is in addition to 400 facilities in the continental United States that are also involved in pathogen work.

Why would Americans fund multimillion-dollar projects of foreign biological laboratories at all, if there are enough resources inside the country to study any infection?

The official version from the mouth of the command of the Security Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which oversees the biological laboratory, is to reduce the threat of the spread of global infections. Say, there are a lot of irresponsible users of pathogens on the planet (Russia, North Korea, China and Iran), and emergencies in these countries can cause a global catastrophe at any time. The COVID-19 pandemic in this case will seem like just a modest prelude.

And initially, everything is logically aligned in favor of the American version. In China, there were no and there are no state biolaboratories. And look, what kind of infection they threw to the world from Wuhan? But partners in Thailand from Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok were the first in the world to identify COVID-13 outside of China on January 2020, 19. And the American partners from the local biological laboratory helped the Thais in this. That is, the precedent of the global coronavirus pandemic is now becoming the main lever for the further spread of the American spider web.

In a declassified report from the director of the American Security Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Weil Oxford on October 2 last year, biolabs were declared almost a panacea for the coronavirus threat. The Americans did not treat anyone at these facilities, but only provided "diagnostic testing." In particular, particular successes have been achieved, according to Oxford, in Ukraine and Georgia. Only now, the simplest analysis of open data suggests the opposite: neither in Georgia, nor even more so in Ukraine, has there been and is not observed a decrease in coronavirus infection. At least in comparison with neighboring countries.

Nevertheless, the rhetoric of the American authorities is acquiring a new color: if you want prompt protection against coronavirus, prepare a building for a biolaboratory.

Enemy at the gate


Biological laboratories, or, as they are also called, reference laboratories, are now open in most countries of the near Russian abroad. Since 2010 they have been operating in Ukraine, since 2011 - in Georgia, and since 2016 - in Kazakhstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan.

Especially in this situation, the situation with Armenia is surprising, whose national security is 100% dependent on Russia. Now on the territory of the CSTO member there are at least 3 biological research centers funded from Washington. When asked about the closed mode of operation of these centers, General Director of the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Armenia Artavazd Vanyan replied:

“The laboratory has a biological and chemical research focus and cooperates with both the United States and Russia. It is normal that our system is closed, as we are dealing with pathogens. "

The permanent conflict with Azerbaijan, which regularly turns into real hostilities, gives a special coloring to this situation.

What are the consequences of an air strike or missile attack on these laboratories from Baku?

By the way, Azerbaijan also has several American biological laboratories. The US government does not categorically grant anyone access to these facilities. And they have the right to do so, it should be noted.

It's all about the vague wording of the 1972 Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Biological and Toxin Weapons. The treaty does not provide for any mechanism for other states to access biological laboratories suspected of working with prohibited weapons. That is, Russia can resent the deployment of at least 15 reference laboratories in Ukraine as much as it pleases, but legally it cannot do anything. At the same time, if something like this were to be deployed on the Russian side in Cuba, Washington's stormy response would not have kept itself waiting for several hours.

The 1972 Convention prohibits any form of biological and toxin weapons, but the international community does not provide for the procedure for checking suspicious objects. Therefore, all US biological laboratories have the status of exclusively sanitary and are closed to any inspections.

The outrageous situation with American reference laboratories in Armenia seems to be finding a solution. In May of this year, Yerevan and Moscow signed an intergovernmental memorandum "On issues of ensuring biological safety." And although the details of the agreement have not been published, it remains to be hoped that Russia's interests in this case are taken into account.

The main purpose of financing the work of the ramified spider network of American biological laboratories, in addition to the officially announced ones, is to prepare for a large-scale "silent biological war".

The fact is that no one will now, like the Japanese from Detachment 731, throw ceramic bombs with fleas. Work with local vectors of pathogens comes to the fore. Mosquitoes, flies and other insects do not know about state borders and can bring strains of especially dangerous viruses and bacteria to Russia or China.

That is why American military biologists have chosen the causative agents of tularemia, anthrax, brucellosis, dengue fever, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever as objects of research. All this infection is carried by blood-sucking insects.

Since 2007, the southern and central regions of Russia have been experiencing large-scale outbreaks of African swine fever, the causative agent of which is a specific strain "Georgia-2007". The pathogen is mechanically carried by insects and mites. Rosselkhoznadzor experts have calculated the economic damage from epizootics - more than 5 billion rubles of direct losses and about 50 billion rubles of indirect ones. By all indications, the new strain "Georgia-2007" was bred in the notorious Richard Lugar Public Health Center in the vicinity of Tbilisi. However, there is no direct evidence for this. And, most likely, it won't.

It is according to this scenario that hybrid wars with the use of biological weapons are unfolding in the XNUMXst century. There are epidemics (epizootics), there are new strains of pathogens, there are financial losses, and it is impossible to prove the fact of sabotage. The even distribution of US biolaboratories around the globe allows Americans to create effective biological warfare tools. The vectors of pathogens are sought out among local insects and animals, viruses and bacteria are adapted for them. At the same time, everything formally remains within the framework of international law.

The Americans do not hide the political underpinnings of the location of reference laboratories abroad. Now, according to the most conservative estimates, there are at least 200 such objects in the world. In the above-mentioned report by the director of the Security Threat Reduction Agency, Weil Oxford, biolabs are explicitly referred to as instruments of "soft power." Many countries in a pandemic panic will be much more accommodating to the deployment of new biological defenses. According to Washington, such laboratories demonstrate partnership aspirations and paternal care on the part of the United States.

At the same time, the degree of influence of opponents - Russia and China - in the countries that have sheltered American biological laboratories is decreasing. All this is being done in full accordance with the national interests of the United States. For the first time, the Americans have officially recognized that their spider network of reference laboratories is one of many tools in the fight against Russia.

And we definitely need to do something about it.

      Good question.
      First of all, the Kremlin celestials need to understand the threats posed by these biological laboratories. It seems that no one in the Kremlin sees these threats point-blank.
      Then develop a specific policy (program of action) on this topic.
      The first point is to widely inform the public and authorities of different countries about the serious danger posed by these centers. Further, persistent individual work with each state.

        It is cheaper to destroy the source than to deal with the consequences. Each such laboratory has a small vigorous charge to burn out everything that these clever guys invented together with them, so that others would be disagreeable. Let them train on their cats.

          Yes, the author is not hinting at anything, since it is already clear that in the destruction of Russia mattresses will go to any dirty trick, including the use of bacteriological weapons.
          As long as the United States exists, the same potential threat to the existence of all mankind will exist.

            Biological weapons are weapons of mass destruction. If it is proved that the infection was developed and used by the United States, this should amount to an attack, an act of aggression. With laboratories, especially along the perimeter of Russia, it is necessary to do this.

            And, there is no need to stand on ceremony, to wipe them off the face of the earth, as Israel does with its opponents, sometimes preemptively, for prevention in its safety. You cannot obviously strike with aircraft or missiles, make them a "natural disaster", but these hotbeds of potential "zombielands" must be burned out with a red-hot iron, and the United States must be declared criminals against all mankind.

        They all know and understand, only one thing needs to be understood - the colonial government obeys the orders of the metropolis, and no matter how loudly the dog barks, it will not bite the hand of the owners. All the pseudo-patriotic slogans of "our" government are almost always at odds with the case.
        If we take it as an axiom that we have a colonial administration, then all the actions of the government become clear and logical.

          I often agree with you, but I cannot agree with the thesis of the "colonial government". The colonial government does not smash the satellites of the metropolis in the war, does not shoot down its satellites, does not return territory without permission, and has no strategic nuclear forces equal to the metropolis.
          The main reasons for the ineffective actions of the Russian authorities are different. First of all, these are incompetence, irresponsibility, irremovability, ideology of winnership, monetary mentality and deep psychological dependence.
          But the conclusion will still be general for both points of view - not capable and not suitable.

            Have you ever thought that this is done for the appearance of independence?
            After all, if you take it globally, what success do we have in smashing satellites? Ukraine? No, by returning Crimea, we received an absolutely hostile state controlled by the United States. So the victory is more like Pyrrhic.
            Syria? No, we really got stuck there, more tactical victories, zero strategic victories. As soon as we withdraw the troops, everything will return to normal.
            Try to assess your progress with an open mind.
            Several years ago, the IMF recommended that Russia raise the retirement age, less than 2 years later it was raised. All WTO recommendations are being implemented, and to the detriment of the economy, although the United States itself often ignores them. However, like China.
            The funds received from the sale of resources are invested anywhere, but not in their own economy.
            Social policy of the state according to the results one to one according to Hitler's plan "Ost" and the precepts of Margaret Thatcher.
            So, all the same, there is more similarity with a well-thought-out colonial policy than with an inept and incompetent independent one. hi

              I agree with almost all examples. The half-heartedness and lack of knowledge of actions is explained by a deep psychological dependence.
              Most likely, the ruling elite is still in prostration. "How so? We are theirs - bourgeois, and they face us about the table. " The local elite wants to enter the world establishment at least as junior partners. This is their deepest dream and aspiration of their whole life. Therefore, they are afraid to completely ruin the relationship. Hence all the lack of knowledge of actions.
              The ineffectiveness of investment policy is explained by the structure of the economy, the specifics of policy and, ultimately, by the same incompetence. Social policy is also incompetent. They do not know how to foresee the consequences of their actions.
              Economy and social policy are separate large issues that require
              separate consideration. Academician Glazyev writes a lot on economics.
              P.S. Incompetence includes misdirection. For example - "energy superpower".

    It’s a rather gloomy picture. There are two ways. To speak harshly with some. To offer compensation to others for the destruction of such laboratories. And it does not matter if they love us, everyone loves money. But the main thing is to make the Sanitary Service inside the country powerful. And here it’s no longer compromises are possible with business, with our business.

Someone here is proposing to destroy these laboratories with explosions. I'm afraid we will not breathe any easier after that. We missed the construction of these laboratories. Probably, the humane Americans thought they were building hospitals, and it was at the construction level that it was necessary to act.

    The author writes that in Ukraine, the Americans opened a biological laboratory in 2010. Bullshit. The "anti-plague station" in Odessa was opened during the reign of Nicholas II and still exists (changing the name). In the early 00s, it was in critical condition (chronic underfunding) and the states gave money to modernize it. Not a single American is on the staff there. As the locals worked, they still work.

    What can not be said about China, which if he wanted, then the nick could not create biolaboratories in 30 countries. And that the biological war began and who started it, we have all seen for two years. Thanks to the unfolded powerful propaganda, the people of the entire globe are built at attention and are intimidated beyond recognition. The introduction of electronic passports for vaccination (namely ELECTRONIC), although a vaccination certificate has been introduced all over the world for more than 70 years, it is paper-based, and all data about a person along with his genome are entered into the electronic one. Vaccination is also an effect on a person, and no one knows what can be added to this vaccine, even though there is one vaccine, but for different countries it has its own varieties. So the world needs to wait for another pandemic.

    A new injection of "intelligence data" of the United States on China's guilt in the 2019 coronavirus epidemic is expected. That there is a good counter-reason for the simultaneous start of an information war in all mental media - from every iron !, about the obvious and hypothetical threats to the work of US biological laboratories. The issue must be resolved, at least in all neighboring countries from the Baltic states to Kazakhstan. Gradually build up pressure from diplomatic to military. In extreme cases, an open announcement of the date and time of destruction of biological laboratories and testing of thermobaric ammunition. Where we have "Daddy of all bombs" - Aviation vacuum bomb of increased power - is quite suitable !!!

In Saratov, the Institute of Biological and Chemical Defense was liquidated in the course of Serdyukov's "reforms", and the Academy of Chemistry and Chemical Protection from Moscow to Kostroma, having previously disbanded the command school. Not a single doctor of sciences from the academy did not go to Kostroma. And you say threats.
