U.N. Says ‘No Evidence’ Backing Russian Claims of Ukraine Bioweapons Program

U.N. Says ‘No Evidence’ Backing Russian Claims of Ukraine Bioweapons Program

After two years of press distortions about covid, there are many reasons for continued concern and skepticism about Ukrainian biolabs.

The United Nations met this week at Russia’s request to consider Moscow’s claims related to “the military biological activities of the U.S. on the territory of Ukraine.”

The international body has concluded there is no evidence Ukraine had a biological weapons program.

Russia called the meeting of the 15-member U.N. Security Council to reassert through its envoy Vassily Nebenzia, without providing evidence, that Ukraine ran biological weapons laboratories with U.S. Defense Department support.

Member countries called the claim “a lie” and “utter nonsense” and used the session to accuse Russia of deliberately targeting and killing hundreds of civilians in Ukraine, assertions that Russia denies in a 15-day offensive it calls “a special military operation.”

Izumi Nakamitsu, the U.N. High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, told the council the United Nations is “not aware” of any biological weapons program in Ukraine, which joined an international ban on such arms, as has Russia and the United States along with 180 other countries.

The U.S. representative suggested that Russia is conducting a false-flag operation.

U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said Russia was playing out a scenario put forth in the council last month by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken — that President Vladimir Putin would “fabricate allegations about chemical or biological weapons to justify its own violent attacks against the Ukrainian people.”

“The intent behind these lies seems clear, and is deeply troubling,” she said. “We believe Russia could use chemical or biological agents for assassinations, as part of a staged or false-flag incident, or to support tactical military operations.”

However, I do not think that people’s fears about Ukrainian bioweapons research will be allayed. I also sense there will be a great deal of skepticism expressed by serious pundits and on social media (at least, where it slips through the notice of Big Tech minders).

To begin with, the American press and the nation’s bureaucracy has shot any and all credibility during the past two years of covid coverage. The propaganda, distortions, and public-relations lies produced through the collusion of “journalists” and bureaucrats are legion (e.g., no human transmission, herd immunity will be achieved at 70% vaccination, coronavirus came from a seafood market in Wuhan, etc.).

As if to underscore why there is so much distrust in the press, the New York Times recently printed a newsletter that went against the COVID-19 agenda that it has long promoted and concluded that social distancing, masking, and mandates did not make a significant difference in outcomes.

After analysis of chart after chart of infections in “blue” areas with heavy covid restrictions and “red” areas with little to no such policies, there is little to discern in terms of differences.

The lack of a clear pattern is itself striking. Remember, not only have Democratic voters been avoiding restaurants and wearing masks; they are also much more likely to be vaccinated and boosted (and vaccines substantially reduce the chances of infection). Combined, these factors seem as if they should have caused large differences in case rates.

They have not. And that they haven’t offers some clarity about the relative effectiveness of different Covid interventions.

Next, there is further evidence that the National Institute of Health funded the gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

The Intercept obtained over 900 pages about EcoHealth Alliance’s U.S.-funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China .

The documents detail two unpublished proposals funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and updates to EcoHealth Alliance’s research.

Tucker Carlson recently did a detailed review the the Russian accusation. By his account, there is an internet trail that is concerning.

…[T]he National Pulse dug up 2011 report from the U.S. National Academy of Sciences that also explained that the Odessa based laboratory “is responsible for the identification of especially dangerous biological pathogens.” So, what we’re doing—this is not the first time you’ve heard this story—we are funding the creation of deadly pathogens so we can study them and prevent people from getting infected with them. Maybe? There are lots of examples of this. The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has a handy web page explaining that American and Ukrainian scientists have worked on a whole bunch of different experiments like this.

Some of the projects include work on African swine fever virus, hemorrhagic fever virus, and various respiratory viruses. The interesting thing, the telling thing, is that the U.S. Embassy’s website also contains links to fact sheets about America’s support for biological research in Ukraine, but all those links are now dead. That’s weird. It’s our government. We pay for it. Again, they’re there in our name, in the name of American citizens, but we can no longer read their web page. How does that work, exactly? They have no right to lie to us.

The web page is archived, thankfully, and the fact sheets show Defense Department funding to laboratories in Ukraine.

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has published a handy list of links to Ukraine biolab documents reportedly removed by the U.S. Embassy.

Despite this official UN pronouncement, there are many reasons for continued concern and skepticism.

Of course they rejected the information. NATO exists today to support and streamline the great reset and implementation one world leadership consortium.

I’ve been watching the lurid coverage over at MSNBC, where these talking heads keep telling us how this is all a war of choice by one man, Vladmir Putin, who just might be going crazy.

My problem with that narrative is that Putin has a decades-long history of supporting the pragmatic best interests of a country, our rival. Why am I supposed to now believe something different? It’s almost like being told first that masks don’t work, and then they do.

Is it so terrible to acknowledge that other countries have interests that are different from (and sometimes opposed to) our own, and that the wiser course is to address those legitimate interests as best we can?

Wouldn’t we be more likely to come up with a rational, effective response, if we were to acknowledge a few interests, such as Russia’s desire not to have missiles on its border, not to have a long train of murders of Russian-language speakers in Ukraine, and to know what in the hell is going on in those labs, especially in light of the ugly results obtained in Wuhan?

Our newsmongers are engaged in crazy-making. They are knowingly, uncritically spewing out falsehoods generated by our government. Those falsehoods are of the type that will only lead to bad decisions.

    Just because our government, media and cultural institutions are lying in lock step doesn’t mean that everyone else is telling the truth. It just gives historically pathological liars and tyrants freer rein to lie even more.

    If you want to know why the “free” world is in lock step in its lies and what interests this serves, read creepy World Economic Council founder and leader Klaus Schwab’s book “Covid 19: The Big Reset”.

    https://www.amazon.com/COVID-19-Great-Reset-Klaus-Schwab/dp/2940631123/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=The+Big+REset+by+klaus+Schwab&link_code=qs&qid=1647122203&sourceid=Mozilla-search&sr=8-1

    It should have been titled: “The Rise of the Fourth Reich”.

    Schwab may be the only guy telling the truth. Of course, that is only a conspiracy theory. Conspiracies only happen in books and crazy people’s heads.

    “if we were to acknowledge a few interests, such as Russia’s desire not to have missiles on its border, not to have a long train of murders of Russian-language speakers in Ukraine, and to know what in the hell is going on in those labs”

    And the flip side of this, a country Russian with speakers, conquered and enslaved by Russian speakers, who perhaps wants to make sure it does not happen again?

    Russia currently has NATO members on it’s borders as well as missiles. In the 21st century a number of countries can reach Russia with missiles from anywhere. England could have bombs over Moscow in under a minute so that whole thing is silly. There is no evidence of any “long train of murders of Russian… speakers in Ukraine”. Those labs, though. Russia might want the research from there but it’s main reason to go after Crimea and that part is oil. It’s main reason to go after Ukraine is to reconstitute the Russian Empire which Putin has stated quite openly and also to cut off the Ukrainian gas pipeline to Europe. Control of that, Nordstream 1&2 and Bidens spiking of the pipeline from Israeli gas field would give Russia a lock on Europes gas supply. England has a direct line from Norway. There is a branch that go’s to Europe on that line but expect England to refuse to divert anymore gas that direction as it faces massive hikes in prices due to it’s Green Nonsense.

Wuhan 2.0. Deja vu. SARS-CoV-2 was ostensibly developed to mitigate pathogenic progress, then it spread, and evolved. The non-sterilizing medical treatments with short and waning safety data, were authorized for emergency use, then by mandate and Choice (e.g. stigma, empathetic appeal, disinformation) were distributed to the general population.

    We need to tighten our laws, and make felonies out of government funded research that violates American law even when it is research abroad.

Psaki only said it once, that there are no bioweapons labs in Ukraine before changing the subject. That tells me that there are US funded labs in Ukraine. That is why it must be burned.

“U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said … that President Vladimir Putin would “fabricate allegations about chemical or biological weapons to justify its own violent attacks against the Ukrainian people.”.”

“Ukraine has “biological research facilities,” says Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland, when asked by Sen Rubio if Ukraine has biological or chemical weapons, and says she’s worried Russia may get them. ”

Has anyone told Joe that his Undersecretary of State works for Putin?

Russia! Russia!! Russia!!!

There is no evidence of biolabs except for a diplomat testifying that they are destroying dangerous materials so that Russians don’t get their hands on them.

What are these materials? A cure for cancer?

So American allies took the line of the United States Government.

Sorry but the fact that when asked under penalty of perjury Victoria Nuland REFUSED to deny it is strong evidence. The fact that the U.S. military funds them is also evidence. The fact that they are secret in Ukraine instead of subject to inspections and American law in America is also evidence.

The fact that it doesn’t take 30 years to convert bioweapons labs into legit biolabs is also evidence.

Sorry but there is no evidence Russia is planning a false flag, when it wants to invade it just does it as it did in Chechnya, Afghanistan, Ukraine today, and when Hungarian rebels showed up in Hungary.

The major false flag to justify invasions have been done by Germany (against Poland) and the United States (to get congress to consent to the Vietnam War which the president thought required false flag operation).

If Russian forces are on the verge of isolating Kiev I should imagine they are afraid of bioweapons.

We can’t keep Russia from invading Ukraine. We could stop uncritically believing claims that fail to pass the laugh test from the very people who brought us Russia Collusion and parents protesting CRT are terrorists.

“…put forth in the council last month by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken — that President Vladimir Putin would “fabricate allegations about chemical or biological weapons to justify its own violent attacks against the Ukrainian people.””

How did Blinken know that they would supposedly fabricate the specific allegations? Seems like the most likely way is that the State Department knew the Russians were going to find the labs and find out what was going on. I don’t know this to be true, but why would Blinken make this specific allegation if not to get in front of it?

I usually enjoy articles written by Ms. Eastman, but this is probably the first that has disappointed. Ostensibly it is about the UN’s finding that there is no evidence of bioweapons development facilities in Ukraine, contrary to Russia’s history of accusations. But in reality, it is about her skepticism of anything written by the mainstream press, issued from the UN, or not approved by Tucker Carlson.

What China was or was not doing in Wuhan, and how a dishonest government like China, represented it is not relevant. We are speaking of Russia making unsupported claims, and folks like Tucker attempting to plant sinister inferences about a subject of which he knows little.

Tucker’s “internet trail” is only concerning because Tucker uses the common person’s ignorance to provoke alarm.

Yes, we, and most developed countries, have biolabs that identify and study pathogens, you know, like the ones that identified and studied SARS, CV 19, and just about every pathogen (especially new ones) there is.

And some maybe funded to modify of pathogens, so as study potential changes that an adversary might use, and what the characteristics strengths, and weaknesses might be.

And while the material Eastman found is no longer linked, it is still available to a diligent researcher. And given the relentless accusations of Russia starting in the Trump administration (also refuted by his administration) I am not surprised they’d like to take a lower profile. Every tidbit that drops spawns a piranha feeding frenzy of speculation, sinister characterizations, and feeds Russian propaganda.

And that, Ms. Eastman, is not lying…its not feeding wildlife.

The bottom line is that there isn’t any proof that these labs are bioweapons development facilities. And sinister conjecture is not evidence.

By the way, we do recall aluminum rocket tubes were supposed to be proof of nuclear bomb development by IRAQ…right?

    A week ago that paragraph would have been they don’t exist at all.

      Mark in reply to Danny. | March 15, 2022 at 1:55 am

      Only because, like Tucker, you are using your own ignorance as a basis of suspicion. A week, a year, or way back in the Trump administration the allegations were known, and the facilities were also known. Just because no one told you of the Bio Threat Reduction Program that has been in place for many years doesn’t mean you are entitled to claim a story then wouldn’t mention it. You probably don’t even know the Trump administration rejected it as well, right?

    Danny in reply to Mark. | March 13, 2022 at 12:25 am

    By the way why are you horrified Russians might find a cure for SARS?

    There is evidence they are weapons facilities such as them being secret in Ukraine instead of public in America, the fact that they are funded by the military, and the fact that the reason for that funding is a lie (we are not working on conversion of those labs 30 years after they got placed under new management).

      nuts.
      marxist nuts.

        Danny in reply to Barry. | March 13, 2022 at 11:27 am

        Oh so non-denials that don’t actually deny anything are all you need? Fine glad you agree the anti-CRT movement are terrorists and Russia collusion happened you POS.

      Mark in reply to Danny. | March 15, 2022 at 2:02 am

      I have objections to Russians finding a cure for SARS? You are hallucinating immaterial statements not written.

      As for evidence of them being “secret”, and your string of lurid accusations, you haven’t provided a thimble of support to make those claims. Your imagination isn’t a form of evidence.

    Barry in reply to Mark. | March 13, 2022 at 3:16 am

    Agree with you Mark. Way too much credence being put on subjective data.

    Has Tucker Carlson discovered the presidential election was rigged yet? If not, why not? There is substantial evidence available in nothing more than commons statistical data to bear this out…

    I have as much faith in Carlson as I do in Putin or Biden.

      Danny in reply to Barry. | March 13, 2022 at 11:28 am

      Glad you are basing total allegiance to the national security state and not concerned about anything our government does if someone shouts “WAR WAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR” and you get to pretend we won 2020 an election we lost 46.5-51%

Kinda like there was “no evidence” of irregularities in the last Presidential election.

Not gonna waste a ‘shocked face’ over this travesty.
