Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop has reared its ugly head again, as it reportedly contains emails that appear to back up Russian claims that the US president’s son was involved in financing military research into dangerous pathogens at Biolabs in Ukraine.
Biden helped arrange millions of dollars in financing for Metabiota, a Pentagon contractor that specialized in researching pandemic-causing pathogens that could be used as bioweapons, the UK’s Daily Mail outlined on Friday, citing newly obtained emails and letters from the computer. The president’s son and his partners in a firm called Rosemont Seneca also invested $500,000 in the contractor.
At least one of the documents suggested that Metabiota’s interest in Ukraine went beyond research and money-making. An executive with the contractor, Mary Guttieri, explained in an April 2014 memo to Hunter Biden “how we can potentially leverage our team, networks, and concepts to assert Ukraine’s cultural and economic independence from Russia and continued integration into Western society.”
Another memo showed that Biden had pitched a “science project” involving Metabiota and Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company where Biden made millions of dollars as a board member. His pay was cut by half after his father’s stint as US vice president ended in January 2017.
The revelations come one day after Russian military officials alleged that US agencies and high-level Democrats, including Hunter Biden, have been involved in backing bioweapons research in Ukraine. The officials cited documents that had been seized by Russian soldiers in the former Soviet republic.
However, some Western media outlets dismissed the claims as Russian propaganda meant to justify Moscow’s military attack on Ukraine. In many cases, the allegations were brushed off or ridiculed without even taking them seriously enough to include a US government response. For instance, the Daily Beast declared in a headline, “Russia ramps up the crazy,” while state-funded NPR and other outlets referred to the accusations as “false” or “propaganda” without any apparent probing of the facts. Even the Daily Mail itself, before obtaining the latest Biden emails, said Russia had ramped up its “wild propaganda campaign” by making its bioweapons claims.
The reaction echoed the response in October 2020, when the New York Post broke a story alleging overseas influence-peddling by the Biden family, citing emails obtained from a laptop that Hunter had abandoned at a Delaware repair shop. Spreading the report was blocked on social media, where the Post was censored, and mainstream media outlets suggested that the scandal was the result of a Russian disinformation campaign.
Thus, the original scoop was essentially buried just weeks before Biden was elected president, in an extraordinary case of media bias. However, last week, the New York Times admitted that the laptop and its contents were authentic.
Government records show that Metabiota was awarded an $18.4 million contract by the Pentagon, the Daily Mail added. Emails showed that Hunter Biden claimed to be helping the contractor “get new customers,” including government agencies.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has released further details about US bioweapons activities in Ukraine that make people sit up and take notice.
The Russian Defense Ministry has released more documents about the Pentagon’s bioweapons research in Ukraine, which it captured in the military operation. Some information is not new for readers of my book Inside Corona, for example, it was reported that the company Metabiota is involved in the research. Metabiota is a pathogen research company controlled and funded by the CIA and the Pentagon that also played a role in the history of the Covid-19 pandemic. Details on metabiota can be found here.
My whistleblower Mr. X, who researched with me for Inside Corona, had already found this information and we knew about the involvement of Metabiota and the EcoHealth Alliance researching bat coronaviruses in Wuhan before the Russian Ministry of Defense published it has, participated in the research of the Pentagon in Ukraine and also in Georgia. I will report on this in detail and with all sources when I am back from my current trip to the crisis area in eastern Ukraine.
Here I translate the statement of the Russian Ministry of Defense and after that, I attach the slides published by the Ministry on it.
Start of translation:
The Russian Defense Ministry continues to analyze documents exposing Pentagon bioweapons activities in Ukraine.
The incoming material shows the pattern of cooperation between US government agencies and Ukrainian bio-establishments. Notable involvement in the funding of these activities by structures close to the current US leadership, most notably the Hunter Biden-managed Rosemont Seneca Mutual Fund. The fund has significant financial resources of at least $2.4 billion. In this case, the fund has close ties with key US military contractors, including Metabiota, which along with Black and Veach is a major supplier of equipment to Pentagon Biolabs around the world.
The scope of the program is impressive. USAID, the George Soros Foundation, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention are directly involved in implementation alongside the US Department of Defense. Scientific oversight is provided by leading research institutions, including Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is developing nuclear weapons as part of the Manhattan Project.
All of these activities are carried out under the complete control of the Pentagon.
Note: in front of you is a registration card confirming that exactly 30 Ukrainian laboratories at 14 locations were involved in large-scale military-biological activities in Ukraine. ( Translator’s note: see the slides at the end of this article )
The document is signed by Viktor Polischuk, Deputy State Secretary of the Ukrainian government. The legal basis for signing was the Convention on Cooperation for the Prevention of the Spread of Technology, Pathogens, and Information That May Be Used for the Development of Biological Weapons.
The registration card identifies the commissioner of the work, the US Department of Defense Threat Reduction, as well as the list of biological weapons.
As we previously reported, the funding totals approximately $32 million for the 2018-2020 period alone. The text of the document states that the United States, its personnel and contractors are exempt from the obligation to pay any taxes or similar charges levied in Ukraine.
The Department of Defense has disclosed and summarized the pattern of movement of biomaterials. Funding for military biological activities has enabled the United States and its allies to export at least 16,000 biosamples from Ukraine.
For example, as part of the UP-8 project, blood samples from 4,000 soldiers in Lviv, Kharkiv, Odessa, and Kyiv were tested for antibodies against hantaviruses and from 400 soldiers for antibodies against the Congo-Crimean fever virus.
Such large-scale screening of the natural immunity of the population was probably carried out in order to select the most dangerous biological agents for the population of a particular region.
The analysis of the documents shows that not only human tissue and serum samples but also dangerous pathogens and their vectors were exported. For example, more than 10,000 samples were sent to the Lugar Center in Georgia. Other recipients include reference laboratories in the UK and the Loeffler Institute in Germany.
All of this poses a risk of sensitive genetic information being sent abroad and endangering biosecurity not only for Ukraine but also for the regions to which the samples were shipped.
One of the priorities of the American clients is the anthrax pathogen, which is characterized by high susceptibility and survivability in the environment.
This slide shows documents from the UP-2 project, which included identifying burial sites for dead animals and collecting anthrax samples from soil samples there. US military biologists’ interest in studying insect vectors in burial sites is also no coincidence – apparently, they were analyzing the results of the 2016 anthrax outbreak in Yamal, which found cases of transmission by flies and horseflies.
Given that the anthrax epidemic in Ukraine remains benign, the question arises as to the need for Pentagon research and its true purpose.
We are aware of examples where the US military’s work with anthrax ended up in biosecurity emergencies.
Between 2005 and 2015, viable anthrax spores were shipped from the US Army’s Duguay Testing Site to 194 recipients in 10 countries around the world.
The situation that has arisen with the shipment of pathogenic biomaterials from Ukraine to European countries could result in loss of life and create a hotbed of epidemiological instability of a magnitude comparable to that of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We continue to publish information about research work involving Ukrainian military personnel. We would like to note that such work is prohibited on the territory of the USA and is carried out outside the USA by the US Department of Defense.
We have already mentioned the UP-8 research, which involved more than four thousand people. According to Bulgarian media, around 20 Ukrainian soldiers were killed and another 200 hospitalized during the experiments in the Kharkiv laboratory alone.
The documents were received to confirm the attempt to test previously untested drugs on them. It’s about the “deep drug” screening system for drugs that aren’t approved in the US and Canada.
The particular cynicism of the American sponsors is that the developer, the Scymount company, offered to buy the said system on a commercial basis, even though officials from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense were enlisted as volunteers.
Such unacceptable practices, tacitly condoned by the US government, are the norm for big pharmaceutical companies. In 2010, for example, the Indonesian authorities closed the US Naval Medical Center in Jakarta due to numerous irregularities.
The Americans carried out work at the facility outside of the agreed research program, collecting biological samples and refusing to inform the Indonesian government of the results. The material they obtained was used on behalf of Pentagon-affiliated pharmaceutical company Gilead, which is conducting trials of its drugs in Ukraine and Georgia, among other places.
We would like to point out that the number of biological laboratories in the United States is not comparable to that of other countries. According to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they are responsible for 336 laboratories in 30 states outside of their national jurisdiction.
We believe that, in connection with the information received, it is necessary to obtain clarification from Washington about the real purpose of the activities of the United States laboratories within the framework of the international investigation.
