EXCLUSIVE: Deleted Web Pages Show Obama Led an Effort To Build a Ukraine-Based BioLab Handling ‘Especially Dangerous Pathogens’.


Exclusive: Deleted web pages reveal that Obama pushed for the development of a Ukrainian bio lab for "particularly dangerous pathogens."

The article, unearthed by National Pulse, raises serious questions about U.S. government activities in Ukraine spanning nearly two decades.

A deleted web article rediscovered by The National Pulse reveals that former President Barack Obama spearheaded an agreement to build bio labs for "particularly dangerous pathogens" in Ukraine.

The news appeared on the same day that Victoria Nuland, the Biden regime official, told the U.S. Senate that the U.S. government was concerned about biological research facilities falling into Russian hands as a result of the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.

The article, titled "Biolab Opens in Ukraine," was originally published June 18, 2010, and describes how Obama helped negotiate an agreement to build a biosafety level 3 laboratory in the Ukrainian city of Odessa during his tenure as an Illinois senator.

The article, which also highlighted the work of former Senator Dick Lugar, also appeared in Issue No. 818 of the Outreach Journal of the United States Air Force (USAF) Counterproliferation Center.

"Lugar said plans for the facility began in 2005, when he and then-Senator Barack Obama partnered with Ukrainian officials. Lugar and Obama also helped coordinate efforts between U.S. and Ukrainian researchers that year to study and prevent avian flu," said author Tina Redlup.

A 2011 report by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences Committee on Anticipating Biosecurity Challenges from the Expansion of High Security Biological Laboratories Worldwide explained that the Odessa laboratory "is responsible for identifying particularly dangerous biological pathogens."

"This laboratory was rebuilt and technically upgraded to BSL-3 security level under a 2005 cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Defense and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health. The cooperation focuses on preventing the spread of technologies, pathogens and knowledge that can be used to develop biological weapons," the report continues.

"The updated laboratory serves as a temporary central reference laboratory with a depozitarium (pathogen collection). In accordance with Ukrainian regulations, it has a permit to work with both bacteria and viruses of the first and second pathogenic groups," the report says.

A separate document on the BioWeapons Prevention Project's Ukrainian Biolab Network describes in more detail the range of pathogens with which the facility has conducted research.

Among the viruses the lab studied were Ebola and "pathogenicity group II viruses using virological, molecular, serological, and expressive methods."

In addition, the lab "provided specialized training to professionals on biosafety and biosecurity issues when handling dangerous biological pathogens."

The biolab facility that has come to light is the result of intense scrutiny of the U.S. government's decision to fund risky functional gain research in Wuhan at a Chinese Communist Party-run lab with military ties.
