«When the Defense Department’s CTR policy officials refocused the program to deal with the administration’s global war on terrorism, they concentrated on developing programs and projects with those nations that had inherited biological laboratories, research institutes and sentinel stations associated with the Soviet Union’s biological weapons programs. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union had developed the largest biological weapons program in the world. A decade after the collapse and the formation of 15 new states, along with the rise of international terrorism, questions arose about the security, safety and number of dangerous pathogens at these research institutes and field stations. Unlike the inherited nuclear and chemical weapons, there was no central government ministry or bureaucracy in Moscow to negotiate with on requirements for new programs. Instead Jim Reid and Andrew Weber, senior CTR policy officials, traveled to the Russian biological research institute and negotiated biosecurity assistance and bioresearch projects. “We found,” Weber explained, “that peer-to-peer contact between scientists was the best way to find out what was really going on the ground and in the labs.”».
Thus begins the chapter entitled “Biological Threat Reduction Program Expands ” within the book written by Joseph P. Harahan for Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), a Pentagon’s Agency, which is a gold mine for understanding what is happening in Ukraine after the Russian invasion.
But it is also the filter that allows us to understand how Washington betrayed Moscow in the plan to reduce the biological weapons of mass destruction and why Russian President Vladimir Putin is so furious at the White House.
The book is titled “With Courage and Persistence: Eliminating and Securing Weapons of Mass Destruction with the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Programs” and since it was published ironically in 2014 it assumes the connotation of a mockery in addition to damage.
Because it tells of how the US Department of Defense, through the DTRA agency, even got its hands in the biological laboratories of the Kremlin, oriented towards the peaceful “glasnost” (public domain or transparency) started by Michail Gorbacev with the “Perestroija (reconstruction)” of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
And he narrated it precisely in 2014: the year in which the US, with the help of the Color Revolution format of George Soros and the Ukrainian embassies of other NATO countries, perpetrated the bloody coup in Kiev.
This coup was in fact functional not only to erode another state of the former USSR located on the border with the Russian Federation, not only to create the conditions for new nuclear missile bases of the Atlantic Alliance closer to Moscow, not only to search to steal the Donbass rich in gas and oil coveted by Burisma (in which Hunter Biden, son of the current American president Joseph Biden, then deputy to Barack Obama, was administrator) but also to take full control of the 12 biological laboratories created by the DTRA in Ukraine under the confident eyes of Russia who believed in the collaboration plan on the reduction of biological weapons.
The American defense line rests on the thin thread of selfless help to Ukraine to protect itself from the risks of bacteriological attacks. In short, the Pentagon, on which it depends on the DTRA, admits to having funded 12 of the 15 biological laboratories, we published the evidence already in the Ukraine Biolabs – 2 investigation, but claims to have then left the management of the research centers to the government of Kiev.
This is a huge lie. We have highlighted it again in the last report Ukraine Biolabs – 5, but we will demonstrate it even better in the next with the details and photos of the links between Ukrainian officials and the American Pentagon contractors, also thanks to OSINT documents on the activity of the DTRA itself. in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
Now we want to demonstrate how Vladimir Putin’s “good faith” towards the White House in the field of bacteriological weapons has been betrayed not only in Ukraine but even earlier in Georgia and finally in China.
In fact, in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the USAID agency, a financial instrument of the CIA counter-espionage, by the will of the Obama-Biden administration, financed the experiments with HIV infected SARS functional to the artificial construction of recombinant chimeric viruses enhanced with the Gain of Function for “dual use” vaccine or bioweapon, just as it turns out to be SARS-Cov-2 which has 19 nucleotides identical to those of a gene built in the laboratory by the American pharmaceutical company Moderna in 2016, thanks to repeated funding from the Pentagon.
THE DEAL BETWEEN MOSCOW AND WASHINGTON ON BACTERIOLOGICAL DISARM
«This book recounts the history of one of America’s most important national security programs and celebrates the work of the many public servants who have made it a success. The Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, which became law in 1991, was aimed at providing American funds and technical expertise to help safeguard and dismantle vulnerable stockpiles of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and materials in the former Soviet Union. Although much of this original mission has been completed, the capabilities of the Nunn-Lugar Program and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which implements it, have expanded to meet global proliferation threats and much more important work remains to be done».
This is what was written in the introduction by former president of the Pentagon Armed Services Committee Samuel Augustus Nunn jr, a young non-commissioned officer of the Coast Guard and later Democratic Senator of Georgia, and former Senator Richard Lugar, former Mayor of Indianapolis. and Republican Senator from Indiana who died in 2019 at the age of 87.
Now let’s see what the book reveals and what it hides. “The Bush administration, grappling with two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, has refused to engage with Russia. Except for the areas of non-proliferation and counter-terrorism, the two nations had few policies, programs or problems of cooperation »reads one of the premises in the first chapters.
All quotation marks are taken from the DTRA book, so we will avoid repeating the source and will only report when they are not.
«When terrorists attacked New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001, it devastated the United States. President Bush and his administration altered the nation’s national security strategy and foreign policy. Antiterrorism, counter terrorism and military invasions in Central Asia and the Middle East dominated the decade. Russia, under Putin, had a different set of objectives».
«In June 2002 Putin appealed at the G-8 Summit leaders meeting in Canada, asking them to assist Russia in destroying its chemical arsenals and obsolete nuclear missiles and submarines. National leaders pledged $10 billion over 10 years. The United States pledged another $10 billion. Then in December, the Bush administration, following an extensive review, issued its national strategy to combat weapons of mass destruction».
«It directed the administration’s departments and officials to dismantle the former Soviet Union nations’ WMD and infrastructure and to consolidate and to secure their remaining weapons and related technologies. The new strategy sought to increase transparency and encourage new standards of conduct in all policies and programs. For the next six years, the Nunn-Lugar CTR and other international programs were governed by this strategy».
A MILLION DOLLAR RAIN IN GEORGIA AND UKRAINE
«In 2003, the U.S. Defense Department received from Congress $40 million to start the WMD Proliferation Prevention Initiative with selective nations of the former Soviet Union – Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Azerbaijan. “Increased efforts by terrorists to secure WMD and WMD components, materials and expertise,” CTR policy officials reported to Congress in 2004, “have demonstrated a need to improve the security of the non- Russian FSU states’ borders”».
«During 2003 and 2004, U.S. officials met with ministerial representatives from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Azerbaijan, and began negotiating specific agreements, programs and projects. Working under the CTR WMD Proliferation Prevention Initiative, these officials developed new implementing agreements, new cooperative maritime and land border programs, and specific projects to acquire, deliver, and use new detection technologies and equipment».
Among the protagonists of these missions in the former Soviet Union there are two senators destined to become great friends in accordance with that bipartisan entity called Deep State whose existence was confirmed by a former CIA director during the Ukraine Gate built in art for impeachment against President Donald Trump.
They are Richard Lugar and Barack Obama, senator from Illinois, who appear together in the book in a photo owned by the DTRA itself taken in 2005 during their visit to Georgia at the arms factories of the former Soviet Union.
«In 2005, Bush and Putin agreed on the Bratislava Initiative to develop and implement security enhancements at Russian national nuclear storage facilities within three years. In addition, the U.S. CTR program developed new proliferation prevention initiative projects to counter terrorist organizations with Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan».
«Along with these assistance projects, the CTR program developed new programs in biological threat reduction. The objectives for this new effort differed considerably from the post-Cold War, Andrew Weber declared, now the issue was for the United States was to work cooperatively with other nations to stop the leakage of dangerous biological materials, pathogens, and expertise. Introducing modern security and surveillance systems with these nations would establish early warning systems against disease outbreaks and provide for the surveillance of infectious diseases».
«Within a few years, several bilateral Threat Agent Detection and Response projects were underway in Georgia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, with funding exceeding $210 million. Significantly, these new cooperative projects moved the entire CTR program away from dismantling and eliminating excessive nuclear and chemical weapons of the Cold War era and directed it toward new collaborative biological programs with new nations, creating new systems and networks to confront more immediate contemporary threats».
FROM THE LUGAR CENTER IN TBILISI TO THE ANTIVIRAL AGAINST COVID-19
Let’s make some concrete examples to help understand the scope of the project.
«In the nations that had them, CTR policy and program managers and the national research institute directors worked with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and selected Department of Defense laboratories to organize and conduct training course and seminars with the national scientific and technical staffs on diagnostic and epidemiological topics. The classes and courses discussed bioethics, biosafety and biosecurity, and emphasized sustainment, program investment and strategic relevance to the region and world».
«By 2005, the U.S. CTR program had funded 12 research projects with biological research scientists working at five Russian institutes. There were also two projects in Kazakhstan, four in Uzbekistan and one in Georgia. In Russia, these research projects involved more than 400 scientists at different research institutes».
«In Georgia in 2005, the classes trained 450 scientists and lab technician on techniques in biosafety and biosecurity. Following these courses were new classes in diagnostic methods and epidemiology». Since the Soviet era there have been various biological laboratories in Georgia, such as the “Georgian Black Death Station”, which is located in the Saburtalo district of Tbilisi, and is now the “National Center for Disease Control and Health public “, since 1937 the Soviets worked on dangerous pathogens.
The next center construction began in 2004 after the US government and the Georgia government signed a MoU between the DTRA and the Georgia Ministry of Defense. The full name of the agreement was “Cooperation in the field of preventing the introduction of pathogenesis and experience related to the development of biological weapons”.
This laboratory was opened in Tbilisi after the Rose Revolution financed, by his own admission, by the American-Hungarian plutarch George Soros, one of the main donors of the Democrats who subsequently invested heavily in Gilead, an American pharmaceutical company called to manage the research center which Pentagon contractor.
Gilead, chaired by the two-time US Secretary of Defense Donald Henry Rumsfeld, became famous during the pandemic for the production of the Remdesivir antiviral against Covid-19, for which the Wuhan Institute of Virology applied for a patent for China on January 26, 2020, a few days after the isolation of the new deadly coronavirus strain called SARS-Cov-2.
The spread and effectiveness of that antiviral had been prodigiously prophesied by the simulated exercise on a coronavirus epidemic Event 201 held in New York in October 2019, a few weeks before the official discovery of the Chinese cases of Covid-19, thanks to funding of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum and the participation of the attorney Avril Haines, former deputy director of the CIA (2009-2013) and then National Security Advisor to the White House (2013-2016) during the Obama administration- Biden.
That summit was also able to predict the delay in the arrival of anti-Covid vaccines, although Moderna had patented its messenger RNA-based gene serum as early as March 2019, 9 months before the pandemic.
Gilead did a golden business thanks to the very expensive antiviral and this helped to partially erase the dark shadows that had fallen on its business due to the mysterious and dangerous bacteriological experiments conducted at the Richard Lugar Center in Tbilisi, started by the Obama administration in 2011 and came into operation in 2013, with the opening of a BSL-3 laboratory, just when Haines was appointed deputy director of the CIA.
The Lugar Center was named after the deceased Republican senator of the same name with whom Obama shared disarmament projects in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
In 2016, the Georgian laboratory run by Gilead on behalf of the Pentagon Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and under the supervision of the CIA, was accused by Russia of testing deadly bacteriological weapons after the death of human guinea pigs following some clinical tests. Among the various top-secret researches were also those aimed at eradicating Hepatitis C in Georgia as part of the UNITAID project, a global health initiative hosted at the WHO headquarters in Geneva that works with various partners to prevent, diagnose and treat major diseases in low- and middle-income countries, with particular attention to tuberculosis, malaria and HIV / AIDS.
UNITAID supporters include the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation which donated $ 50 million in 2017 alone. While among the subjects involved USAID could not be missing, the link between research in the epidemiological field and the CIA, which has often used it as a financial tool for regime change around the world.
All this would have little relevance to the current pandemic were it not for leading medical scientists such as Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize-winning virologist, and Pierre Bricage, NATO bio-engineer and lecturer, argue that the SARS-Cov-2 virus was infected with HIV: just like some experiments conducted by the laboratories of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Chapel Hill of North Carolina University were doing thanks to the PREDICT 2 – USAID project.
This happened in partnership with the WHO, thanks to the contributions made by Gates to the initiative and to the World Health Organization itself which gave him the power to appoint his biologist friend Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, political leader of the TPLF, the Ethiopian front formed by guerrillas. communist-Muslims.
Biden’s 2019 prophecy was not shot at random. The comment was inspired by an article published the previous day by the Washington Post, which reported the Global Health Security Index report, “the first comprehensive assessment of global health capabilities”, which indicated that 195 countries in the world were unprepared to face an “event global catastrophic biological “.
The Index is “a project of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), a non-profit organization based in Washington, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. The Nuclear Threat Initiative was founded by Democratic Senator Sam Nunn and CNN founder Ted Turner; while the Johns Hopkins Center was the organizer of the Event 201 exercise which chose the lawyer Haines, its university researcher, as the protagonist. However, the former deputy director of the CIA is also the consultant on bacteriological weapons of the NTI.
OBAMA’S TRIP TO GEORGIA AND UKRAINE
To understand this tangle of intrigues you have to reread everything at least twice. But let’s summarize.
While Moscow, with Putin’s personal commitment, had agreed with Washington for the reduction of biological weapons on the basis of the Lugar-Nunn law, behind the scenes the Gilead, contractor of the Pentagon, was working in Georgia under the supervision of the Central Intelligence Agency (a circumstance confirmed by the investigation by Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva) of which Haines was deputy director, expert on biological threats in the Institute founded by Nunn and prophetess of the pandemic like Gates, financier of Moderna’s anti-Covid vaccine together with Pentagon and Anthony Fauci, director of NIAID , which had also contributed to research on the SARS virus in Wuhan.
«In August 2005, Senators Richard Lugar and Barack Obama traveled across the region, going first to Ukraine where Jim Reid, Director of CTR Policy, who was accompanying them, signed a new CTR biological weapons agreement and discussed eliminations of thousands of tons of ammunition, small arms and light weapons. Next, they toured Russian dismantlement facilities at Perm, and saw nuclear storage depots at Sartov. The trip resulted in the introduction of new legislation in the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, essay articles in the New York Times, and new initiatives to incorporate elimination of conventional weapons around the world into the cooperative threat reduction program.».
As reported in the DTRA book, Senator Obama commented that neither the US government nor the public saw the Russian government’s threat not to safeguard its excess nuclear warheads or destroy its obsolete strategic missiles.
Relations between the White House and the Kremlin are starting to creak. Because?
«In Russia all CTR biological weapons programs were managed through a memorandum of agreement between the U.S. government and the International Science and Technology Center, based in Moscow. This memo gave protection to U.S. government employees and contractors, exempted projects from VAT taxation, and provided audit and examination rights, but it was not well suited to managing and reviewing engineering and construction projects».
« For five years Jim Reid had requested a more formal bilateral implementing agreement with the Russian Ministry of Health, but none had been developed or signed. As a result, in 2008 Reid limited CTR engagements with the Russian institutes to the continuation of collaborative smallpox research and selected biosecurity and biosafety projects».
«To increase oversight on these cooperative biological research projects inRussia, CTR programmanagersrequired that an American collaborating scientist work in the Russian research laboratories at times when research was being conducted. At DTRA, CTR officials renewed a contract with the University Strategic Partnership, led by the University of New Mexico and Pennsylvania State University, to recruit American biologists to work in Russia with national scientists».
«However, these experts, known as “visiting scientists,” were not able to work in the Russian biological research institutes due to directors’ unwillingness to cooperate and enter into bilateral implementing agreements on biological threat reduction. Instead, the visiting scientists developed CTR- funded research projects with scientists from other nations».
While the DTRA agency is transforming the bacteriological centers of Georgia (and Ukraine, as we will see) into biological experimentation laboratories, the US recriminates the mistrust that is emerging in Moscow, where intelligence is following with attention the geopolitical evolution after the revolution orchestrated by Soros.
“The consequences of inaction can be enormous,” Obama said, “but I think that it’s one of the issues where until it’s too late, you don’t see a problem.”99 Senator Lugar, co-author of the Nunn-Lugar Act of 1991, observed, “The question that is raised by members of the House and Senate … and probably by a number of American taxpayers, who would hope that perhaps Russia would assume more and more of the responsibility and expense.”
THE DTRA PROGRAM IN UKRAINE
« By 2007, there were 10 collaborative research projects underway in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. American scientists working on these projects came from Louisiana State University, New Mexico State University, Arizona State University, University of Maryland, Pennsylvania State University, University of Florida, Texas A&M University, Department of Agriculture, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Naval Medical Research Center, Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and the Naval Medical Research Unit-3».
«Each of these CTR- funded projects worked to develop international standards of openness, ethics and conduct among national biological scientists and technicians. So vigorous were these new biological threat reduction programs that by 2008 it had become, according to independent experts, “the largest biological nonproliferation program in the world”» reads Harahan’s book published by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
«As the CTR biological programs developed full-scale in Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Azerbaijan, new cooperative efforts grew into robust public health programs, ones that could be sustained over many years. New collaborative research projects, involving American, international and national scientists began in Russia, Georgia, Ukraine and the other nations».
« Within the Bush administration, these new Biological Threat Reduction Programs were endorsed, supported and managed by senior policy officials. Lisa Bronson, Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Technological Security Policy and Counterproliferation, testified to Congress that dangerous pathogens and the scientists who developed them were a serious security threat. She asked Congress to support and fund the CTR program’s Threat Analysis Detection and Response efforts in Central Asian nations and fund other projects that would consolidate and enhance the biosafety and biosecurity of the pathogens.Congress, led by Senator Lugar, authorized the new programs and appropriated funds to pay for them».
The republican exponent continued his commitment to the extent that he was commended by Obama with an official medal and his name in the Tbilisi research center in 2011.
A year later, in 2012, the Washington Pentagon-based Department of Defense funded the opening of 11 laboratories in Ukraine. One of these, the Dnipropetrovsk State Regional Diagnostic Veterinary Laboratory (Dnipropetrovsk RDVL), was opened by the DTRA itself.
In the days following Russia’s military operation in Ukraine launched on February 24, 2022, both the government of Kiev asked for the destruction of the documents of those biological research centers which, after the 2014 NATO coup, had passed under American control through collaboration. with the company METABIOTA, contractor of the Pentagon financed by Hunter Biden, son of the American president Joseph then deputy of Obama, and partner in the experiments on HIV infected SARS conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology with the Predict project supported by the USAID agency by the will of Obama.
In the next investigation we will see evidence of this collaboration between Ukrainian laboratories and Metabiota. For now we limit ourselves to recalling the disturbing revelation of some research on coronavirus of Chinese horseshoe bats funded by the Pentagon and that on Covid-19 started at least a month before the official discovery of the pandemic disease.
