Russia’s Ministry of Defense accused the U.S. of creating and unleashing COVID-19 upon the world to benefit the Democratic Party and Big Pharma.
“The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation continues to analyse the military and biological activities of the US and its allies in Ukraine and elsewhere in the world in the light of new information obtained in the liberated territories,” Kirillov said in a briefing released on Thursday.
Russia cited a leading expert in The Lancet medical journal alleging that COVID-19 was created as a result of U.S. biotechnology advances.
In May 2022, Jeffrey Sachs – a leading expert in the respected medical journal The Lancet and professor at Columbia University, the leading academic institution for global biosecurity, told a conference in Spain that ‘..the coronavirus was artificially created and is very likely to have been created using American advances in biotechnology…’.
Russia suggested COVID was also a product of biological research due to the pandemic appearing to be “artificially fueled” by new variants in different parts of the world.
According to our experts, this is evidenced by the uncharacteristic variability of the genovariants that cause different peaks in the incidence of coronaviruses, significant differences in lethality and contagiousness, uneven geographical distribution, and the unpredictable nature of the epidemic process as a whole. It appears that despite efforts to contain and isolate the disease, the pandemic is being artificially fuelled by the introduction of new variants of the virus in a particular region.
Russia claimed the U.S. Agency of International Development’s (USAID) emergency response measures to the pandemic and the 2019 coronavirus simulation exercise called Event 201 bolster its argument that the U.S. intentionally created COVID-19.
Characteristically, in 2019 – before the first COVID-19 cases appeared – the US Johns Hopkins Institute hosted an exercise called ‘Event-201’, which practised dealing with an epidemic of a previously unknown coronavirus, which, according to the legend of the exercise, was transmitted from bats to humans via an intermediate host, pigs. This is how the ‘Spanish flu’ virus, which has killed tens of millions of people, became pandemic.
The implementation of the COVID-19 scenario and USAID’s emergency wind-down of the Predict programme in 2019 suggest the deliberate nature of the pandemic and US involvement in its emergence.
Additionally, Russia claimed it seized documents during its special military operation in Ukraine revealing USAID contractor Labyrinth Ukraine was conducting biological weapons research in the country — specifically related to coronavirus and monkeypox.
During the special military operation, documents were seized indicating that USAID and its main contractor, Labyrinth Ukraine, have been participating in the US military bioweapons programme since 2019.
Labyrinth Ukraine took part in UP-9 and UP-10 projects, which studied the spread of African swine fever in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
I would like to point out that as part of the US Department of Defense’s biological threat reduction programme, one of Labyrinth Global Health’s research areas has been the study of coronaviruses and monkeypox virus.
Not only that, Russia claimed Ukrainian soldiers were involuntary subjects of that research, citing blood samples from captured soldiers revealing narcotic drugs and “high concentrations of antibiotics were found in their blood, as well as immunological markers indicative of exposure to the renal syndrome and West Nile pathogens.”
The Russian Ministry of Defense (MOD) previously laid out how U.S. pharmaceutical companies were involved in this research as a way to circumvent U.S. safety and development standards and establish a “significant competitive advantage.”
Given these disturbing factors, Russia concluded the COVID-19 pandemic allowed the Democratic Party to consolidate political control in the U.S. and the pharmaceutical companies to collect huge profits from their experimental vaccines.
“Thus we see a clear trend: infectious disease agents that reach the Pentagon’s zone of interest are subsequently pandemic, with US pharmaceutical companies and their patrons, the leaders of the US Democratic Party, as the beneficiaries,” Kirillov stated.
This supports the overall thesis that the Democrats used COVID-19 to push universal mail-in ballots to steal the 2020 election, and that the Ukraine conflict is not just about the Eastern European nation’s sovereignty and relationship with NATO, but about the exposure of U.S. clandestine bioweapons research in other countries.
