Sitrep: UNSC on biolabs in the Ukraine + Russia Transcript
..Russia, China, Brazil, India, and Kenya want investigations into the Biolabs...
Russian Statement Excerpts:
We called this meeting because during the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, some shocking facts came to light: the Kiev regime is urgently concealing traces of a military biological program that Kiev implemented with support of the US Department of Defense.
Defense Ministry of Russia got hold of documents confirming that Ukraine developed a network of at least 30 biological laboratories that host extremely dangerous biological experiments, aimed at enhancing the pathogen properties of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera, and other lethal diseases with the help of synthetic biology. This work is funded and directly supervised by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) of the United States, i.a. in the interests of Pentagon’s National Center for Medical Intelligence. The key role in these programs was played by a BSL-3 central reference laboratory at the Mechnikov Scientific-Research Anti-Plague Institute in Odessa, Ukraine. Research centers in other cities also played a role – Kiev, Lvov, Kharkov, Dnipro, Kherson, Ternopol, Uzhgorod, Vinnytsia. Research results were sent to US military biological centers, i.a. to U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infections Diseases, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, US Naval Medical Research, and US Army Biological Warfare Labs in Fort Detrick that used to be the key hubs of the American biological weapons program...
..As part of another project, bats were considered as carriers of potential BW agents. Among the priorities identified are the study of bacterial and viral pathogens that can be transmitted from bats to humans: pathogens of plague, leptospirosis, brucellosis, as well as coronaviruses and filoviruses. Project documents clearly indicate that the United States actively financed bioprojects in Ukraine…
..Ukraine has a unique geographical location, where transcontinental migration routes of potential carriers of dangerous diseases intersect. Many of those routes pass through the territories of Russia and Eastern Europe. The research that I mentioned was done in the very midst of Eastern Europe and in close vicinity to the Russian borders. According to the data received, the birds that were ringed and released during biological research from the Kherson nature reserve, were caught in Ivanovo and Voronezh regions of Russia...
..Several thousands of samples of blood serum of COVID-19 patients (most of them of Slavic ethnicity) were transported from Ukraine to Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in the United Stated – allegedly for trials of treatment and prevention of COVID-19.
Everyone knows how sensitive Western states are when it comes to transferring biological samples of their citizens abroad. And there is a good reason for that – theoretically, samples may be used to create bioagents capable of selectively targeting different ethnic populations.
The activity of biolabs in Ukraine that we track back to 2014, and US-implemented program of so-called reform of Ukrainian healthcare system triggered uncontrolled growing incidence of dangerous and economically relevant infections in Ukraine. There is an increase in the number of cases of rubella, diphtheria, tuberculosis. Occurrence of measles has increased more than 100-fold. The World Health Organization said Ukraine runs high risks of having a polio outbreak. There is evidence that in Kharkov, where one of the labs is located, 20 Ukrainian soldiers died of swine flu in January 2016, 200 more were hospitalized. By March 2016, the total of 364 people had died of swine flu in Ukraine. Besides, outbreaks of African swine fever occur regularly in Ukraine. In 2019, there was an outbreak of a disease that had symptoms similar to plague.
While the US itself shut down military-purpose biological research on its territory due to high risks it posed to American population, the Kiev authorities actually agreed to turn their country into a biological testing site and have their citizens used as potential test subjects. Those experiments bearing potential country-scale risks continued for years. This once again proves the cynicism of Kiev’s Western patrons who keep shouting from every rooftop that they care for the fate of Ukrainians.....The materials that our Defense Ministry got hold of prove that all serious high-risk research in Ukrainian biolabs was directly supervised by US experts who had diplomatic immunity...
..Ukraine’s Health Ministry ordered to eliminate biological agents deposited in biolabs starting from 24 February 2022...
..The Lvov lab alone destroyed 232 containers with pathogens of leptospirosis, 30 – of tularemia, 10 – of brucellosis, 5 – of plague. The total of more than 320 containers was eliminated. Pathogens’ titles and excessive amounts give reason to think that this work was done as part of military biological programs...
..All those years, there was a site for dangerous biological tests on the doorstep of the European Union. We call to think of a real biological threat to the population of European states that may be posed by uncontrolled spread of biological agents from Ukraine. As we know from our experience with COVID-19, this cannot be stopped. Should this be the case, it will encompass the entire Europe...
..During hearings of the US Congress on 8 March, Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland in fact confirmed that there were biolabs in Ukraine where military-purpose biological research had been conducted...
..At the same time, the Department of State sticks to the point that allegedly there are no US-controlled biolabs in Ukraine. Hence a question to the American delegation. How does this reconcile with 2005 Agreement between the US Department of Defense and Ukrainian Ministry of Health Concerning Cooperation in the Area of Prevention of Proliferation of Technology, Pathogens, and Expertise that could be Used in the Development of Biological Weapons? ...
..We emphasize that biological threats defy all borders. No region of the world can feel totally safe today. The United States supervises several hundreds of biolabs in 30 countries, i.a. in the Middle East, Africa, South-East Asia, and along the perimeter of former USSR. Washington does not agree to subject them to international verification...
..We feel obliged to keep the Security Council updated on the situation with US military-purpose biological activity in Ukraine that creates real risks for international peace and security. We intend to get back to this topic soon. We would not exclude a possibility of activating mechanisms envisaged by Articles 5 and 6 of the BTWC. For now, we would like to hear answers of the US side to the questions that we asked. https://thesaker.is/sitrep-unsc-on-biolabs-in-the-ukraine/
Sergey Lavrov press conference inTurkey after recent talks:
..The direct military, cultural, information, language and civilisational threats to Russia, which were created in the territory of Ukraine, have become perfectly clear and immediate. If we dealt with upright and honest people, the problem would likely have been long settled and security agreements would have been reached. But we do not see any partners who are ready to play fair with us. Several attempts to do this have been made, though. I hope that the Western leaders who have become more concerned over Ukraine will become aware of the existential threat to European security created by their failure to act and their unwillingness to honour previous agreements.
We never wanted a war, and we still don’t want it. We want to end this war, including in the interests of the two republics which refused to recognise the bloody anti-constitutional coup of 2014 and the regime that looked on proudly and cynically when its representatives burned people alive in Odessa, that sent warplanes to bomb central Lugansk, and that has bombed, attacked and shelled residential districts, villages, schools and kindergartens for the past eight years... https://thesaker.is/fm-lavrovs-statements-following-talks-with-fm-turkey-and-fm-ukraine/
Israeli PM Bennett Pushed Zelensky To "Surrender" To Russia: Ukraine Official
Sources breaking this news from Ukraine stated that Bennett initiated the phone call with Zelensky in which he pleaded for him, saying "If I were you, would think about the lives of my people and take the offer." ["The offer" is to recognize Crimea as Russian, recognize statehood of Donetsk and Luhansk, and to strictly codify and enforce Ukrainian neutrality. The refusal to accept "the offer" means that Ukraine will become a landlocked country. Zelensky is actually not free to accept, and would be killed if he tried.] https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/israeli-pm-bennett-advises-ukraines-zelensky-surrender-russia
This is close to Poland, territory that was once Polish, the most hard-core anti-Russian area. Some say it is "a signal". It also takes out military infrastructure that serves NATO interests. (Lots of links from GASP! RT today...)
Moscow confirms airstrikes in western Ukraine
Over the course of 24 hours, Russian warplanes destroyed 107 military sites of the Ukrainian Armed Forces...
Turkish-made Baykar Bayraktar TB2 attack drones were the primary target for Russian air defense forces on Thursday, according to the briefing. A total of eight such aircraft were taken down by Russian troops, in addition to three Ukrainian Mil Mi-24 helicopters, Konashenkov said. https://www.rt.com/russia/551673-russia-defense-ministry-update/
Lots of shoulder fired anti-aircraft weapons are flooding into Ukraine from the west. These are much better at shooting down civilian aircraft than military aircraft, and are much sought on the black market. The control of these weapons is an ongoing problem in the world. Russia has interdicted a shipment to Ukraine of 1970s Soviet heat-seeking "manpads" and is checking serial numbers to see who last possessed them.
The system is still in service with a number of Eastern European states which are now members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), including Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovenia and Slovakia. None of these states have publicly acknowledged sending MANPADs of this type to Ukrainian forces. https://southfront.org/russia-is-working-to-determine-the-supplier-of-igla-manpads-captured-from-ukrainian-forces-video/

US hackers hijacked computers in China to attack Russia (RT, Xinhua)
Hackers operating predominantly from American soil have been taking control of computers in China, using them to carry out cyberattacks against targets in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, China’s Xinhua News Agency reported on Friday.
The news outlet claims that China’s internet authority began detecting such malicious activity in late February. According to the report, the country’s internet has been under “constant” attack from abroad ever since.
The news agency, citing officials, revealed that the majority of cyberattacks had been traced back to the US, with 10 such addresses in New York State alone. Chinese computers have reportedly also been targeted from Germany, the Netherlands, and several other countries.
According to figures cited in the Chinese media, some 87% of all cyberattacks carried out via computers in China had Russia as their prime target. https://www.rt.com/news/551675-hackers-hijack-chinese-computers-target-russia/
Amid Ukraine War, Russia "Ready" To Resume Strategic Arms Reduction Talks With US Ryabkov in his fresh Saturday comments blamed the US for the prior halt in dialogue: "We have not withdrawn from the US strategic stability dialogue. It has been suspended by Washington, apparently under the illusion that we need this dialogue more than Washington. Absolutely not." https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-says-its-ready-resume-strategic-arms-reduction-treaty-talks-us
The EU has used up all of the possible restrictive measures against Russia in response to the ongoing war in Ukraine, the bloc’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said, in an interview with Franceinfo on Thursday.
“Of course, one can always go further, but we have already reached the limits of what we can do. We have done everything we could,” he said. https://www.rt.com/business/551610-eu-financial-sanctions-russia/
How One Ukrainian Billionaire Funded Hunter Biden, President Volodymyr Zelensky, And The Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion
The real person who was the benefactor to, and the boss of, Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, was not the CEO of Burisma Holdings, Mykola Zlochevsky, but it was instead Ihor Kolomoysky, who was part of the newly installed Ukrainian Government, which the Obama Administration itself had actually just installed in Ukraine, in what the head of the “private CIA” firm Stratfor correctly called “the most blatant coup in history.”

Russia may retain foreign aircraft and pay for them in rubles
The Transport Ministry proposes not returning leased planes if contracts are voided due to sanctions
Russia could nationalize the assets of 59 major foreign brands that have decided to stop working in the country in protest against Moscow's ongoing military offensive in Ukraine.
The likes of Apple, IKEA, Microsoft, IBM, Shell, McDonald's, Volkswagen, Porsche, Toyota, H&M and others have featured on the schedule compiled by consumer protection group the Public Consumer Initiative (OPI), according to a report in newspaper Izvestia on Thursday.
The list isn’t final, Oleg Pavlov, the group’s head, told the outlet, adding that the police, the Trade Ministry and consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor will also be involved in work to expand it.
“As soon as companies emerge that announce their withdrawal [from the Russian market] without providing guarantees to the Russian consumers, they’re being added on to it. This means that administrative, criminal and court proceedings will be used against them,” the OPI chief said.
The blacklisted foreign firms could be subject to seizure of accounts and assets, may be placed under external management, or face nationalization, Pavlov pointed out. Nationalization refers to the process of transforming privately-owned assets into public ones under the control of a government. https://www.rt.com/russia/551627-ikea-apple-mcdonalds-nationalize/
An Austrian view, from a Gold site, Egon von Greyerz
The world will obviously blame Putin for the catastrophe which will hit every corner of our planet. But we must remember that neither Putin nor Covid is the reason for the economic cataclysm that we are now approaching.
These events are catalysts which will have a major effect because they are hitting a gigantic debt bubble of a magnitude that has never been seen before in history. And it obviously takes very little to prick this epic bubble...
When sh-t happens at the end of an excessive bubble era, it will always be the worst kind. And what can be worse than a major war that could develop into a nuclear and world war...
Leaders also deliberately ignored the fact that the world was going towards an inevitable economic debt and asset collapse. Much easier to rearrange the deck chairs than to deal with real and emphatically catastrophic issues...
Russia has the biggest natural resource reserves in the world which include coal, natural gas, oil, gold, timber, rare earth metals etc. In Rubles these reserves will obviously appreciate substantially with the falling currency.
In total, the Russian natural resource reserves are estimated at $75 trillion. That is 66% higher than the second country USA and more than twice as much as Saudi Arabia and Canada...
The global market for grains, vegetable oil and fertilisers was already extremely tight before Russia’s attack...
Energy and agricultural products are interlinked. Gas is feedstock for fertiliser production in Europe. Russia and Belarus together account for 1/3 of the world’s potash exports.
Around 33% of world exports of barley come from Russia and Ukraine together, 30% of wheat, 20% of maize and 80% of sunflower oil...
..So while Russia and China have increased their combined gold holdings 5X since 2000 The US allegedly has held 8,000 since 1980. But since there has been no official physical audit of the US gold since 1953, few believe that they hold this amount of unencumbered gold.
Remember: “He who holds the gold makes the rules” https://goldswitzerland.com/global-monetary-commodity-inferno/

The Only Non-Totalitarian Solution to Resource Scarcity: Decentralized DegrowthTotalitarian imposed inequality is the only possible path of centralized Degrowth: 10,000 for me, one for you, unless you disobey, and then you get zero. The fantasy is that everything will soon be super-abundant and cheap again because creating money out of thin air creates demand out of thin air and supply will always magically appear if there is demand. The reality is super-abundant and cheap is gone for good. Demand doesn't create new supply by magic; if the supply is gone, then demand has no magical power to conjure supply out of thin air. http://charleshughsmith.blogspot.com/2022/03/the-only-non-totalitarian-solution-to.html
