A constant stream of vile lies, fabrications and fakes are poured out by the US ceaselessly against many countries around the world, and above all Russia. Many commentators attribute these futile efforts by the current Joe Biden administration to their basic fear of the impending but inevitable fundamental changes taking place on the geopolitical stage. As the proverb puts it, lying is a manifestation of selfishness and weakness. By concealing the truth, the US is being driven by its own weakness and unwillingness to think about anything else and about others. Whatever motives the US tries to attribute to its deceitful policies, the truth remains on the side of the powerful. Because a strong person or country has no need to lie.
This tenet was made perfectly clear by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who, drawing on his extensive experience of fabricating all sorts of fakes and slanders, said that Moscow fabricates claims about chemical or biological weapons to “justify violent attacks on the Ukrainian people.” But he told this lie without any enthusiasm, somewhat stammering, with slack eyes and slumped shoulders, indicating his enormous fear of an unpleasant future and the fact that he, as head of the US foreign policy establishment, would have to answer for all his blunders. And he has so many of them that one might think of the proverb – everywhere you look, there’s a Blinken’s piece of deception.
One would have to recollect the blunders and crimes of the US military that Blinken is trying to cover up. These are Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, millions of lives ruined and many hundreds of millions of people crippled by the US, tens or even hundreds of countries robbed. Sooner or later there will have to be accountability for all this, and that deadline for the American rulers is steadily approaching. Hence their Nazi Goebbels-style monstrous lies, which the rest of the world can only laugh at and be disgusted by.
Echoing Blinken, his subordinate, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US Ambassador to the UN, no less adept at lying and demagogy, told her fellow UN Security Council members without blushing, yet another lie about Russia and not the US being responsible for US biological laboratories operating in Ukraine. Incidentally, an emergency meeting of this international organization was called by the Russian delegation following the discovery by Russian troops in Ukraine of real documentary evidence of US-funded biological weapons programs in that country, including clear evidence of the Pentagon’s development of “biological weapons components.” During the UNSC meeting, Russian Permanent Representative Vasily Nebenzya repeated accusations by the Russian Ministry of Justice that Washington supports military biological research in Ukraine and Georgia to create “bio-agents capable of selectively hitting various ethnic groups of the population” (in this case the Slavic race). Thomas-Greenfield also accused China of spreading disinformation in support of Russia’s claims.
But then, apparently tired of piling up a mountain of lies and loosening her focus a bit, she “blundered” by claiming that it was the United States that helped Kiev set up these 30 secret “biological centers.” It is clear even to the layman that Ukraine has never willingly engaged in biological research, and if the most advanced laboratories have been set up on Ukrainian territory, they have been created and generously funded by the Pentagon, which is interested in this endeavor. It may be recalled that it was the Pentagon that transferred all of Hitler’s biologists to the US after 1945 and has been actively engaged in biological development ever since. It may also be recalled that the US is the only country in the world to have actively used this deadly weapon by spraying Hitler’s developments called “defoliants” over the Vietnamese territory. These are the facts of history and no cowardly and deceitful servant of Washington can keep silent about these real events and authentic documents.
But more interesting are the statements of a high-ranking US government official, Victoria Nuland, who bluntly admitted the existence of secret biological laboratories in Ukraine. Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry made public information about Kiev’s development of biological weapons components and also established traces of hasty liquidation of hazardous biological samples after the start of the special operation by the Russian Armed Forces. Why did the Pentagon conduct biological development in Ukraine and what are its dangers to Russia? US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said during an address to the Senate that there are biological research facilities in Ukraine and Washington is trying to prevent them from being taken over by the Russian Armed Forces. In this regard, Kiev’s emergency sweep of the Pentagon-funded military and biological program being implemented in Ukraine has been uncovered. According to the US media itself, the order came from Washington. The Pentagon handlers understand that if the Russian experts get hold of this data, it is very likely to confirm a violation of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention by Ukraine and the US. Namely, work on enhancing the pathogenic properties of micro-organisms using synthetic biology techniques. This alone can explain the haste with which the liquidation effort was carried out. By the way, one can understand Nuland: she has done so much evil in Ukraine that one or a few lies “won’t hurt” her reputation.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that “if the activity of biological laboratories in Ukraine had not been stopped now, their development would have become uncontrollable.” According to her, evidence of US biological laboratories in Ukraine proves the fact of criminal activity by the US. This completely changes the picture of US involvement in Ukraine: it is not just an instrument of influence or containment, but a direct threat to Russia. Moscow also called for an open-ended working group under the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) for the benefit of the majority of States Parties.
In this regard, it should be recalled that after the accidents at Fort Detrick, where the main US biomedical development centers are located, the States banned such work. The Americans then hired laboratories in China, Switzerland and other countries to do the job. In this case, Ukrainian biological laboratories, according to experts, are biological warfare training centers, and this is the most effective war of the future. For his part, the scientist-epidemiologist and former chief sanitary doctor of Russia, Gennadiy Onishchenko, believes that “the purpose of the US biological laboratories network in Ukraine is to create an offensive military potential against Russia.” According to his professional estimates, the US began to establish a biological laboratories network in post-Soviet countries back in the early 1990s. Onishchenko described as hypocritical the US side’s claims that these laboratories are set up and work to ensure the security of Ukrainian citizens and the US military.
The fact that the US has set up dangerous biological laboratories on the Ukrainian territory is no longer disputed by anyone but the Americans themselves, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has strictly warned the US and the now fascist rulers of Ukraine to destroy any particularly hazardous pathogens in their laboratories in order to avoid the risk of an outbreak.
Thus, world organizations have not only recognized the existence of dangerous biological laboratories on the Ukrainian territory, set up and funded by the Pentagon, but have also called for strict control over them to prevent the spread of their hazardous developments. And only professional liars from Washington, D.C., for good money, continue to chatter like silly parrots that these laboratories do not do any harm to the people of Ukraine or Europe.
One wonders what their next fake launched in the world media space will be. Could that be a new lie that the cost of hiring Ukrainian mercenaries (Ukrainian soldiers and officers no longer want to fight for their corrupt rulers), who are paid $2,000 a day, is personally borne by Vladimir Putin out of his own pocket?
