(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- An article now deleted from the Internet but uncovered via web.archive.org appears to suggest that former President Barack Obama headed up an agreement that led to the construction of biolabs in Ukraine that were designed to handle “especially dangerous pathogens.”
The article was originally posted on June 18, 2010, titled “Biolab Opens in Ukraine.” It was published by BioPrepWatch.com and written by Tina Redlup.
“U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar applauded the opening of the Interim Central Reference Laboratory in Odesa, Ukraine, this week, announcing that it will be instrumental in researching dangerous pathogens used by bioterrorists,” the article reads.
It added that the lab is a “level-3 bio-safety lab” and the first to be built under the expanded authority of the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction program.
The article also highlights the involvement of former Senator Dick Lugar, and was also shared in Issue number 818 of the United States Air Force Counterproliferation Center’s Outreach Journal.
So, it’s real, and the content isn’t untruthful.
A subsequent report in 2011 from the United States National Academy of Science’s Committee on Anticipating Biosecurity Challenges of the Global Expansion of High-Containment Biological Laboratories also outlined how the laboratory, based in Odessa, would be responsible for identifying particularly dangerous bio pathogens.
The report says that the laboratory was updated through an agreement between the U.S. Department of Defense and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health back in 2005. The collaboration between the two agencies was designed to stop the spread of new pathogens.
The reports seem to suggest that among the viruses studies at the lab were Ebola, and a plethora of other viruses of “pathogenicity group II.”
It means that the Russians might actually be telling the truth about what they claim to have found in Ukraine following their invasion of the country’s major cities…
