The United States has a large stockpile of dangerous viruses in 30 biological laboratories in Ukraine

There is no rest. A few days ago, the news that Ukraine’s largest nuclear power plant was on fire caught the world’s attention, and now the news that the United States has stored a large number of dangerous viruses in a biological laboratory in Ukraine continues to rattle your nerves.

Biological laboratory, dangerous virus, these words people first associated with biological weapons (biological warfare agent), the use of biological or chemical agents to disrupt the body’s functions, causing illness and even death, to kill the enemy.

Many of us must have seen the movie Resident Evil and remembered the tragic scene in it. Biological warfare agents can be distributed in aerosol form, and they are so highly transmissible that 10 tons of biological warfare agents can cover 100,000 square kilometers, far more than a nuclear bomb. Compared with the latter, biological weapons are much easier to manufacture and transport and pose a great threat to humans.

In addition to posing a major threat to human beings, biological and chemical weapons can also kill livestock and crops on a large scale and are very bad in nature. Therefore, in the 1970s, the international community banned the research, production and use of biological and chemical weapons in all countries.

According to Russia, the United States has set up 30 biological laboratories in Ukraine to study dangerous viruses. Laboratories in Kharkiv and Poltava in Ukraine, for example, work on diphtheria pathogens, salmonellosis and dysentery, while the Lviv Biological laboratory works on plague, anthrax and brucellosis pathogens.

These viruses are very dangerous, anthrax is a kind of acute infectious disease caused by anthrax bacillus, zoonosis, high mortality. Once infected, there will be skin necrosis, ulcers, eschar, edema, pneumonia, enteritis, meningitis and septicemia and other symptoms, is the most common biological warfare agent.

During the Second World War, the British tested an anthrax bomb on the island of Georgia, which almost led to the extinction of all life on the island, becoming a veritable “poison island”, no one dared to visit. It wasn’t until 1986 that 280 tons of formaldehyde were used in the UK to eliminate all the virus.

The United States has been conducting research on various biological viruses under the pretext of reducing biosecurity risks, strengthening global public health, and resolving the spread of chemical and biological expertise. However, the contents and intentions of its research have been kept secret, and it has refused to accept inspections of its biological facilities at home and abroad.

According to Russia, Ukraine ordered the destruction of biological agents in biological laboratories on Feb. 24 to prevent the research from coming to light. In Lviv alone, 232 containers with the leptospirosis pathogen, 30 containers with tulamiasis, 10 containers with brucellosis and 5 containers with plague were destroyed.

Although most of the viruses have been destroyed, the list of biological pathogens and the large number of biological pathogens testify to the United States biological program.

Adding to the cover-up, the US embassy in Ukraine recently removed all references to US funding of Ukrainian laboratories from its website. According to Russian disclosures, the United States has given More than $200 million to Ukrainian biological laboratories.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The U.S. has 336 biological laboratories in 30 countries around the world, far more than the previous estimate of more than 200. These LABS are located all over the world, including in the United States, most of them around China and Russia.

More disturbingly, only a few of the 336 biological laboratories revealed have been publicly located, and most remain largely unknown to outsiders.

Why is the US building so many biological laboratories around the world? Is it just about improving the reproduction of mice? Believe it or not, I don’t believe it.
