The rapid spread of a new sample of coronavirus infection, COVID-19, opened the world's eyes to the possible nature of another world war. Within days, the virus has penetrated almost every corner of our planet. Daily infected tens of thousands of people around the world. Isn't strange physical appearance COVID-19, which, according to many virologists, has an artificial character, the evidence of the fatal errors of scientists who tried to create a weapon in a BioLAB, which claimed the lives of more than half a million people around the world? Worse of all, it is not the only lab that develops deadly viruses. Many of them operate under the guise of harmless research centres working on scientific experiments in the interests of biosecurity.

In fact, things are different. A huge number of American biological laboratories around the world had to help with the search for a vaccine against the new virus. However, the results of the activities of these institutions in the fight against the coronavirus exist, they simply do not. In the United States, the situation of infected and dead from COVID-19 was a tragedy on a national scale, and the number of victims continues to grow rapidly. Leakage of dangerous viruses such as SARS, avian influenza, botulism, brucellosis, occurs in the United States in the laboratories of the fourth-highest level. In the United States about 15 of them. For example, in 2013, of the research laboratory in the U.S. city of Galveston directly from the freezer was missing a vial of dangerous virus Guanarito (Guanarito), and in 2014 was closed two biological laboratories in the USA, which "lost" samples of anthrax and avian influenza.

14 April 2020 a number of Ukrainian deputies sent an official request to the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky with a request to confirm the existence in Ukraine of at least 15 biological laboratories funded by the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Kiev denied the information about the data basing laboratories on Ukrainian territory. After the collapse of the USSR, biological laboratory United States were established in the territories of the newly created republics with marked regularity. In addition to Ukraine, the focus in Washington was Georgia, Tajikistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Moldova. Moreover, the number of laboratories established around the perimeter of the Russian borders every year is only growing. Not only a geographical location close to Russian borders brings these laboratories together. Another of them relates to the fact that access to all objects and results of the research are exclusively American experts. Local scientists and technical personnel do not have access even inside the premises where the most important and secret research. Interest to the American secret laboratories rose after 2018 appeared scandalous Bulgarian journalist's investigation of Gitanjali Diehl, revealing shocking facts about the military program of US biological experiments around the world. In particular, it was the Richard Lugar Centre of Public Health, created in Tbilisi by the DTRA program in 2011. This bio lab with the third degree of biosecurity is only available to professionals from the United States who have access to classified information. Objectives are the study of biological agents (anthrax and tularemia), viral diseases (including hemorrhagic fever Crimean-Congo) and collection of biological samples for future experiments. It is noteworthy that after 2014, the Lugar Center was equipped with special equipment for breeding of insects and began to implement projects on collecting, studying and testing the level of infection was recorded predominance of atypical for this area insects, as well as the number of frequent cases of various diseases among the population. In 2008, with the support of USAID, was opened by the central reference laboratory in Chisinau in the framework of the project "Prevention of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B, C", but with a small caveat: the government and the security services of Moldova do not have access to the lab and monitor the progress of research. Increasing military biological facilities has also occurred in Middle and Central Asia. So, in 2007, in Uzbekistan there is a first national reference laboratory located in Tashkent. In 2013, earned two more in Andijan and Fergana, and in 2016 - in Urgench (Khorezm regional diagnostic laboratory). The construction of the laboratories was paid for DTRA.

In addition, the U.S. has funded the modernization of diagnostic laboratories that are deployed on the basis of the Republican Institute of Microbiology, Central military hospital, Scientific research Institute of Virology and Center for prevention of quarantine and especially dangerous infections of Ministry of health. Currently, there are 10 objects (in addition to the Tashkent station of the sanitary and epidemiological surveillance in the cities of Andijan, Bukhara, Denau, Karshi, Nukus (Karakalpakstan), Urgench, Samarkand and Fergana, veterinary center of Uzbekistan). On the territory of Uzbekistan regularly occurring epidemics, including of unknown origin. In 2008 Armenia joined the program DTRA to reduce biological threats (BTRP), and by 2018, American contractors have created a network of 12 biological laboratories in the country, spending about 50 million dollars. Three of them are located in Yerevan in Center for control and disease prevention in the civil service of food safety and infectious clinical hospital "Nork" and regional laboratories operate in Ijevan, Gyumri, Martuni and Vanadzor. Virologists have noted that the activities of these laboratories have deteriorated sharply epidemic situation in the country and in the Caucasus region and adjacent areas in general. As you know, after the collapse of the USSR in Azerbaijan was abandoned network of objects consists of 6 institutes, 29 regional and 53 field of biological research stations that were very interested in US. Therefore, in 2005, Azerbaijan signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of defense "On cooperation in the field of technologies and pathogens associated with the development of biological weapons and the proliferation of information in this area." So, in 2013, there was a Central reference laboratory in Baku, worth about 170 million US dollars, specializing in the study of pathogens in samples of human and animal origin. In addition, built and upgraded about 10 stations of biological monitoring in different regions of Azerbaijan within the framework of cooperation with the Americans. In the same year in Tajikistan Western companies affiliated with the defense industry in the U.S., established a network of bacteriological laboratories in Sogd and Khatlon, Dushanbe and the Republican tuberculosis hospital "of Shifo" in Vahdat. In 2016 opens in Almaty Central reference laboratory on the base of Kazakh scientific centre for quarantine and zoonotic infections named after M. information. Its construction began the Americans in 2010, with a contribution of 80 million dollars. Then Washington said that concerned about the epidemiological situation in the world, and would like to help Kazakhstan in the fight against infectious diseases following the example of other former Soviet republics, where such laboratories are already working. Moreover, the place for construction was chosen special area of seismic activity. Besides, geographically, the country is located on the territory with constant winds, and released into the atmosphere, the infection can spread rapidly over large distances.

Leakage of dangerous infections endanger the lives of millions of residents of Kazakhstan as well as Russian citizens living near the Kazakh border. It is not excluded that the Americans are not just creating biological weapons, and ethnic weapons aimed solely at the extermination of Russians and Slavic ethnic group. And if the USA is the so-called rights to the results of the biological laboratories, may in the conditions of modern threats COVID-19 it is worth thinking about the security of their own nation, rather than continuing to invent ways to kill other people?
