Dr. Benjamin Braddock, an independent investigator has made the claims that a source at the ECDC who remains unnamed has alleged that a preliminary analysis of the monkeypox strain currently doing the rounds discovered that the disease came from a lab and might be related to the US’s biological research in Ukraine.
Braddock’s tweet on Saturday said, “ECDC source tells me that the preliminary analysis of monkeypox indicates that it is ‘a third lab strain with unknown characteristics’ and that there is chatter about this being somehow related to Moscow’s charges against US biological activities in Ukraine,”
Infowars.com has reported that a Russian-Chinese joint task force has reportedly launched an investigation into “where it originated, whether it is detectable in research conducted by the US in Ukraine, Georgia; whether there is a link to biological research conducted by the US on smallpox in Ukraine.” Braddock said.
A short time after Russia invaded Ukraine, the WHO gave warnings to Ukraine to destroy high-threat pathogens being researched in biolabs as a preventative measure against “any potential spills” into the public.
On Friday, Russia’s Parliamentary Commission on Investigation of US Biological Laboratories in Ukraine accused the United States of conducting illegal research on smallpox and Ebola at clandestine biolabs in Ukraine.
“I’m stunned by this. Every day I wake up and there are more countries infected,” said Oyewale Tomori, a Virologist who previously headed the Nigerian Academy of Science, and currently sits on several World Health Organisation advisory boards.
“This is not the kind of spread we’ve seen in West Africa, so there may be something new happening in the West,” he said.
The United States Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) recently purchased 13 million doses of Bavarian Nordic’s Jynneo smallpox/monkeypox vaccine, but the statement released by the Health and Human Services (HHS) alleges the large order has nothing to do with the ongoing monkeypox outbreak.
An ECDC source has stated that the monkeypox strain appears to be a lab strain with unknown characteristics.
All of this is happening as Russia investigative committee has made accusations on the US of illegal research into smallpox and Ebola pathogens at clandestine biolabs in Ukraine.
Irina Yarovaya, Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Commission on Investigation of US Biological Laboratories in Ukraine has revealed that the US researched Ebola and Smallpox in Ukraine.
“We presented an analysis of which pathogens the US was particularly interested in Ukraine,” She said to reporters on Friday, “Aside from the pathogens that are territorially bound to Ukraine, [laboratories] researched viruses and pathogens that are endemically very far from Ukraine, such as Ebola and Smallpox.”
According to the legislator, the information discovered is indicative of “aggressive goal setting that underpins the foundation of these programs, de facto implemented by US Department of Defense on Ukrainian soil.”
“Unfortunately, it is necessary to particularly emphasise that the betrayal that the Ukrainian regime carried out against its own people has effectively left Ukrainian citizens defenseless in the face of these manipulations, experiments and clandestine research that the US is carrying out on Ukrainian territory,” Yarovaya underscored.
Also noted is that Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergey Naryshkin spoke as the main expert at Friday’s commission meeting.
Yarovaya also warned “I would like to underscore that the dialogue that we had with the SVR chief today, combined with the proof obtained by the commission, fully confirms the US-created network of biological intelligence worldwide and the implementation of active military-biological exploitation of the globe, and Ukraine in particular. This essentially poses a serious global threat!”
