Plague and typhoid: What did American scientists do in Ukraine

Elena Popova

The Ministry of Defense for the first time published a list of those involved in the creation of biological laboratories in Ukraine. Among them is a former State Department official who previously studied Soviet strategic nuclear forces. According to the Russian military, the Americans planned to infect Russia, Belarus, Poland and Moldova with typhoid and hepatitis. What is known about this – in the material of RIA Novosti..
Rivers with typhus, experiments on people
“Earlier, we presented a scheme for coordinating the activities of biological laboratories and research institutes in Ukraine by the United States. One of its elements is the Ukrainian Science and Technology Center (UNTC), at first glance, a non-public organization that has nothing to do with the Pentagon,” he said. Igor Kirillov, Chief of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Troops of the Russian Arm-ed Forces, at a briefing.
The Russian military managed to reveal the role of this organization in the military-biological activities of America on the territory of Ukraine. It turned out that the STCU is an international intergovernmental organization created to “prevent the dissemination of knowledge and experience related to weapons of mass destruction.” The main task of the center is the distribution of grants in the field of biological weapons.
There are representative offices of the STCU in Baku, Chisinau, Tbilisi, as well as in Kharkov and Lvov.
Scientists took water samples in the major rivers of Ukraine – the Dnieper, Danube, Dniester, as well as in the North Crimean Canal, to find pathogens for cholera, typhoid fever, hepatitis A and E. The military came to the conclusion that American and European researchers wanted to spread the infection by water, not only on the territory of Russia, but also to infect the entire water area of the Black and Azov Seas and even Belarus, Moldova and Poland.
In addition, the STCU conducted experiments on people. In the period from 2019 to 2021, in the city of Merefa in the Kharkiv region, scientists were looking for wards from the Clinical Psychiatric Hosp-ital No. 3. “People with mental disorders were sel-ected for experiments based on their age, nationality and immune status. monitoring the condition of patients. No information was entered into the database of the hospital, the staff of the medical institution signed a non-disclosure agreement,” Kirillov said.
According to him, the activities of the laboratory were stopped only in January 2022, and all the equipment and preparations were taken by the STCU staff to western Ukraine.
“In recent years alone, Washington has spent more than $350 million on the implementation of STCU projects. Customers and sponsors are the State Department and the Ministry of Defense. Financing is also provided through the Environmental Protection Agency, the US Department of Agriculture, Health and Energy,” Kirillov listed.
Among those involved is a former employee of the State Department
Thanks to Russia’s special operation in Ukraine, the names and surnames of the people involved in these experiments became known.
The position of Executive Director of the Ukrainian Science and Technology Center (UNTC) was held by US citizen Curtis Belayach. There is little information about him, but it is known that he was born on August 27, 1968 in California. Educated at California Anderson Management University, holds a Master’s degree in International Finance and has been working in Ukraine since 1994.
Eddie Arthur Mayer is called the Chairman of the Board of the STCU from the European Union in the Russian department. There is also no mention of him in the Western media.
Another US curator is Philip Dolliff. At the State Department, he was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction Programs. His term of office expired on March 31, but the information was kept on the website of the department.
Prior to joining the State Department, Dolliff studied Soviet strategic nuclear forces.
Early in his career, he worked on projects such as the development of the Strategic Defense Initiative, as well as programs to reduce the threats posed by North Korea and terrorist groups.
The Ministry of Defense also presented a recommendation from the State Department, which approves the cooperation of the STCU with the Pentagon contractor Black & Veatch. The vice-president of the company Matthew Webber expresses his readiness to work in the framework of military biological research in Ukraine.
According to Kirillov, American curators were more interested in dual-use research, such as Project 6166, “Development of Technologies for Modeling, Evaluating and Predicting the Impact of Conflicts and Threats of Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction.” As well as project 9601 “Transfer of Ukrainian technologies for the production of complex dual-use materials to the European Union.”
The aims of these studies are to study plague, tularemia, bird flu and African swine fever.
The threat is real
“US military biological bases are a real threat. If we do not close these laboratories, then this will be the permanent military potential of the United States,” said Gennady Onishchenko, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Honored Doctor of Russia.
According to him, such bases began to appear actively immediately after the collapse of the USSR. In Georgia and Kazakhstan they are very well equipped. Funding for them comes from the US defense budget. Onishchenko emphasizes that the Americans act absolutely openly and no one hides their funding.
The US has modernized several laboratories in Ukraine as well. According to official information, they were necessary to combat infectious diseases and prevent outbreaks of the epidemic, and not to spread it.
Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that the Pentagon is actively trying to cover up secret programs, including experiments with samples of coronavirus, anthrax and “other deadly diseases.” “But we have every reason to believe that in the immediate vicinity of Russia on the territory of Ukraine, in fact, components of biological weapons were created,” the president said.
The concern of the Russian authorities is caused by the fact that the US legislation retains the norms that allow for work in the field of biological weapons. “The ratification of the Geneva Protocol of 1925 by the United States was accompanied by a number of reservations, one of which allows for the retaliatory use of chemical and toxin weapons,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
Moscow has been seeking to strengthen the regime of the Convention on the Prohibition of Biological and Toxin Weapons for many years, but the United States is blocking the process. Perhaps it will be possible to achieve progress after the publication of new facts from the Russian military.
