    While the US is planning to increase its military presence in Eastern Europe to “protect its allies against Russia”, internal documents show what American “protection” in practical terms means.

    The Pentagon has conducted biological experiments with a potentially lethal outcome on 4,400 soldiers in Ukraine and 1,000 soldiers in Georgia. According to leaked documents, all volunteer deaths should be reported within 24 h (in Ukraine) and 48 h (in Georgia).

    Both countries are considered the most loyal US partners in the region with a number of Pentagon programs being implemented in their territory. One of them is the $2.5 billion Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Biological engagement program which includes research on bio agents, deadly viruses and antibiotic-resistant bacteria being studied on the local population.

    Project GG-21: “All volunteer deaths will be promptly reported”

    The Pentagon has launched a 5-year long project with a possible extension of up to 3 years code-named GG-21: “Arthropod-borne and zoonotic infections among military personnel in Georgia”. According to the project’s description, blood samples will be obtained from 1,000 military recruits at the time of their military registration physical exam at the Georgian military hospital located in Gori.

    The samples will be tested for antibodies against fourteen pathogens:

    • Bacillus anthracis
    • Brucella
    • CCHF virus
    • Coxiella burnetii
    • Francisella tularensis
    • Hantavirus
    • Rickettsia species
    • TBE virus
    • Bartonella species
    • Borrelia species
    • Ehlrichia species
    • Leptospira species
    • Salmonella typhi
    • WNV

    The amount of blood draw will be 10 ml. Samples will be stored indefinitely at the NCDC (Lugar Center) or USAMRU-G and aliquots might be sent to WRAIR headquarters in US for future research studies. Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) is the largest biomedical research facility administered by the U.S. Department of Defense. The results of the blood testing will not be provided to the study participants.

    Such a procedure cannot cause death. However, according to the project report, “all volunteer deaths will be promptly reported (usually within 48 h of the PI being notified)” to the Georgian Military Hospital and WRAIR.

    According to the GG-21 project report, “all volunteer deaths will be promptly reported” to the Georgian military hospital and WRAIR, USA.

    The soldiers’ blood samples will be stored and further tested at the Lugar Center, a $180 million Pentagon-funded facility in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

    The Lugar Center has become notorious in the last years for controversial activities, laboratory incidents and scandals surrounding the US drug giant Gilead’s Hepatitis C program in Georgia which has resulted in at least 248 deaths of patients. The cause of death in the majority of cases has been listed as unknown, internal documents have shown.

    The Georgian project GG-21 has been funded by DTRA and implemented by American military scientists from a special US Army unit code-named USAMRU-G who operate in the Lugar Center. They have been given diplomatic immunity in Georgia to research bacteria, viruses and toxins without being diplomats. This unit is subordinate to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR).

    Documents obtained from the US Federal contracts registry show that USAMRU-G is expanding its activities to other US allies in the region and is “establishing expeditionary capabilities” in Georgia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Latvia and any future locations. The next USAMRU-G project involving biological tests on soldiers is due to start in March of this year at the Bulgarian Military Hospital in Sofia.

    Project UP-8: All deaths of study participants should be reported within 24 h

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded a similar project involving soldiers in Ukraine code-named UP-8: The spread of  Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus and hantaviruses in Ukraine and the potential need for differential diagnosis in patients with suspected leptospirosis. The project started in 2017 and was extended few times until 2020, internal documents show.

    According to the project’s description, blood samples will be collected from 4,400 healthy soldiers in Lviv, Kharkov, Odesa and Kyiv. 4,000 of these samples will be tested for antibodies against hantaviruses, and 400 of them – for the presence of antibodies against Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus. The results of the blood testing will not be provided to the study participants.

    There is no information as to what other procedures will be performed except that “serious incidents, including deaths should be reported within 24 hours. All deaths of study subjects that are suspected or known to be related to the research procedures should be brought to the attention of the bioethics committees in the USA and Ukraine.”

    Blood samples from 4,000 Ukrainian soldiers will be tested for hantaviruses. Another 400 blood samples will be tested for CCHF under the DTRA-sponsored Ukrainian Project UP-8.

    DTRA has allocated $80 million for biological research in Ukraine as of 30 July 2020, according to information obtained from the US Federal contracts registry. Tasked with the program is the US company Black &Veatch Special Projects Corp.

    Another DTRA contractor operating in Ukraine is CH2M Hill. The American company has been awarded a $22.8 million contract (2020-2023) for the reconstruction and equipment of two biolaboratories:  the State Scientific Research Institute of Laboratory Diagnostics and Veterinary-Sanitary Expertise (Kyiv ILD) and the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection Regional Diagnostic Laboratory (Odesa RDL).

    US personnel are indemnified for deaths and injuries to the local population

    The DTRA activities in Georgia and Ukraine fall under the protection of special bilateral agreements. According to these agreements, Georgia and Ukraine shall hold harmless, bring no legal proceedings and indemnify the United States and its personnel, contractors and contractors’ personnel, for damage to property, or death or injury to any persons in Georgia and Ukraine, arising out of activities under this Agreement. If DTRA-sponsored scientists cause deaths or injuries to the local population they cannot be held to account.

    Furthermore, according to the US-Ukraine Agreement, claims by third parties for deaths and injuries in Ukraine, arising out of the acts or omissions of any employees of the United States related to work under this Agreement, shall be the responsibility of Ukraine.

    1. Браво,Диляна! Не мога да повярвам,че още на някой му пука като на теб за нашата държавица и продължаваш да се ровиш въпреки всички пречки,които със сигурност доста те бавят в разследванията….! Поклон! Един ненадупен журналист!

    2. Поздравления за труда!

      При търсене на “US biological experiments on allied soldiers in Ukraine and Georgia” в Google, за съжаление излиза първо ето тази статия –
      Интересно, че в тази статия автора ревностно защитава ммението на Пентагона. Bulletin-a по принцип е място за научни статии, сътоветно тук трябва да имат неутрално мнение по въпроса…

      • Журналистът ме потърси за коментар. Когато му изпратих коментара си, разбира се, не го публикува в нарушение на всички жирналстически принципи, защото коментарът ми доказва, че съм права и не се вписва в тяхната пропаганда. Това е коментарът, който журналистът странно защо не публикува, въпреки че поиска такъв: “My comment to your article: The Lugar Center has become notorious in the last years with a number of scandals including a US project on Hepatitis C in Georgia during which according to leaked documents 248 patients enrolled in the program died. The cause of death in the majority of cases has been listed as unknown. Please, see the documents yourself before ignoring this as disinformation again. I am quoting what is written in the death reports: “cause of death unknown”.

        Secondly, I went to Georgia twice, met local people, verified all this information independently through different sources, on the ground, including by reaching out to local people and official sources. I keep my email exchange with government officials including the US representatives in Georgia and all of them refused to give me interviews. I have fulfilled my duty as a journalist seeking official comments. I have received none.

        Thirdly, the US scientist at the Lugar Center have been given diplomatic immunity to research viruses, bacteria and toxins (bioagents), they have also been granted legal protection and cannot be held to account if they cause death and injury to the local population, as shown in the documents I present. Why have military scientists studying insects and viruses been given diplomatic immunity and legal protection in case they cause death and injury to the local population? I tried to ask them as shown in my previous reports but they ran away in their diplomatic cars and refused to answer. Again I did my best to get a comment from them. No answer.

        How did you brand this as ” apparent disinformation”? Did you go to Georgia, did you meet with these patients, did you ask why the cause of deaths is listed as unknown? Or did you rely only on official government information? If so, this is not journalism. This is is Government PR. You work for governments not for the people.

        The topic about all these biolaboratories is very important especially now, in the pandemic and you yourself research in one of your articles the possibility of a lab leak from Wuhan where the US government funded a similar project on coronaviruses. Then why is this double standard? You admit the possibility of a lab leak in Wuhan but flatly deny the possible dangers of such projects in Georgia and Ukraine. Why? Simply because the US Government say so?
        If foreign military scientists with diplomatic immunity and granted legal protection against prosecution in case they cause death perform such a program on bioagents on American soldiers and in the final project report it is written that “all volunteer deaths WILL be promptly reported” will you call this disinformation? Or simply because this program is in Georgia and Ukraine (US allies) any report on these projects must be immediately dismissed as “disinformation”? I really want to know will you react the same way if it was in your country? Thank you in advance for your comment.



    3. Човека най-вероятно в момента прави reseach по темата.. сигурно е в Грузия 🙂

      Най-ми хареса ” amplified a bogus 2018 story”, сякаш не си показала един куп документация по въпроса.

      Надявам се това да не остане като дезинформационен материал и в други медии и ти пожелавам успех!

    4. Thank you, Dilyana! I have just found my way to your site today by way of a blogger that I have been following for over a decade. She is always one step before anywhere else on the internet that I have access to and I trust her. She linked your story on the biowarfare labs in Ukraine today (2018) but she had the “map” and a suggestion (hope) that Russia was blasting them on Feb. 23 only linking your page today, 26th.

      I used many of the links on your site and was grateful to see the Donbass News Agency article. I try so hard to learn the different viewpoints and some nuances therein before throwing my support behind a side. The Donbass News is a little gem of perspective that I find expands the picture. There is much more for me to discover there but I want to encourage you in your journalistic endeavors.

      I am a 55-y.o. housewife living in the Great Lakes region of the USA. I am sure you know already but I want to reassure you; most USA citizens are completely unaware of the crimes being committed in their name. Most would be horrified if they learned of them. I have always been curious and have learned way more than my friends and peers and try to keep them abreast but every thing I learn leads to 100 more horrors! The leaders of every country these days are just complete power-twisted game playing psychopaths and I suspect that pretty much all rest of us would get along just fine with them.

      May we meet in heaven.

      • Hello Amy. I’m European (from two EU countries) and I’m married to an Arab woman. We’ve been horrified for decades at what the US ‘deep state’ is doing, along with their vassals in the EU and elsewhere. But never, in any way, did we or will we blame the average American citizen. The overwhelming majority of Americans I’ve met are lovely and kind-hearted. They’re often ignorant of a lot of serious things, but it’s the same with many of my fellow country men and women. We can’t blame them really. Most people work hard and have a family, and not enough time to do thorough research unfortunately. But don’t worry, kind-hearted people will always love you average lovely Americans. God bless you all, and don’t worry, we will all meet up there

    5. Dilyana, thanks from the far north Russian Arkhangelsk!! But the news are killing! Awful!!

    6. Pay no mind to him. I checked his stories and he is all in with the left’s media fan club and/or believes what our corrupt government and weaponized intelligence agencies say.

      The absolute best way to vet American media is their reporting on the January 6 False Flag set up by Pelosi and her Capitol Police minions. There is independent video as Pelosi isn’t allowed to be questioned by the Kangaroo J6 Committee and they refuse to release their Capitol video. They are illegally holding political prisoners in the DC jail for over a year without being charged. They aren’t allowed contact with their attorneys and some placed in solitary confinement for 22 hours a day. They are being abused and denied medical treatment for their injuries while the weak Republicans do nothing – IN AMERICA!

      All of this so they could give themselves the ONLY narrative they have to declare their opposition “domestic terrorists”. This author didn’t appear to cover the two years of destruction from the Democrat’s domestic terrorist arm, BLM and ANTIFA. They caused millions in damage, about two dozen deaths, over 700 injured and locked people in Federal Buildings in the Northwest and set them on fire.

      When our corrupt DOJ was asked why the Federal Buildings set on fire in the Northwest weren’t of concern while capitalizing on their false flag in DC, his response was because it didn’t happen in the daytime – they have nothing! Our media has been monopolized by the globalists so when they side with our corrupt government against Everyday Americans – they are at the behest of their political benefactors.

      American media is the least trusted in the world because they have deserved the title. This reporter doesn’t appear to understand that this Covid Con is a global experiment and they are hiding the Adverse Events from their gene-therapy bioweapon. Our cognitively incompetent installed President is compromised by China, Russia and the Globalists and We The People of America know they are trying to destroy us for their Great Reset.

      Please don’t feel the need to explain yourself to American media as there is no shortage of journalists working against the people of America for their globalist benefactors. We are waking up to the fact that what our corrupt government and the Child Abusing Democrats say other countries are doing, is what THEY are doing.

      American legacy media cannot be trusted.

      Independent Fed Up American

    7. We no longer trust my former party of tolerance and their media. The Globalist Child Abusing Democrats and their media fan club lie at the behest of their political benefactors and are considered the least trusted media in the world because they worked hard to deserve that title. They are woke but we have woken up to their lies destroying our country.

      Independent Fed Up American!

    8. Agreed! I am a homeschooling mom of 7 in South Carolina. I am quite frustrated by trying to tell friends and family about the bigger picture, but many just want to live their simple lives and do whatever the government tells them to do. There is definitely a balance because we would hide in a cave if really aware of all that is going a follower of Jesus, I know the end of the story and He wins!

      • We have been fed lies from more than MSN and our government. “He wins”? Christians don’t follow Jesus, they follow Paul and the rest of the faked scriptures put in the NT after Matthew.

    9. Благодаря Ви, Диляна!Вие сте вдъхновяваща!
      Разочарованието и погнусата, която изпитвам към медийте в глобален мащаб е неописуема, но Вие сте лъч надежда.
      Пазете се!Светът има нужда от хора като Вас!

    10. Сигурно знаете че в америка кой какви договори изпълнява и какви оръжия за кого се копуват, се обществена информация и се публикуват в сайтове като
      Публикацията Ви за Purple Shovel и Silk Way Aviation, беше много добре проучена.

    11. See how the qanon folks are distracting people away from the fact that the majority.of child abusers are sexually repressed fascists with secret lives at night. reports a south dakota billionaire caught with child porn recently. March 19, 2001 Newsweek for more. Normal dems did Epstein’s 15 year olds. Killary too.

    12. “Thank You” I Share your Feelings About Our Governments and The Media Another Fed Up American, I also Don’t Understand “Why have military scientists studying insects and viruses been given diplomatic immunity and legal protection in case they cause death and injury to the local population?” and i don’t Understand Why Dr.Falsi Is Not in Jail and Or Even Nazi Nancy ?

      Dilyana; Thank You Hun Excellent work

    13. Thank You So Much “We The People” Appreciate People Like You”! or Reporters Over Here in America Our Media Has Sold Their Souls Bought & Paid for and Our Government Also To Whatever” or Whoever “? Puppet Master I do Not Believe Anything My Government Says They Are “ALL” Liars and Crooks. I Have a Story about The Hep C. Personally . I guess i was one of the Lucky Ones But It Nerves Me (THey Gov.) Did This in 1992 or 93, it was Across the US. In Their So Called “WAR ON DRUGS” I was an Addict Then It was Really a WAR On Personal Freedoms as You Said One Would Care if It was “In Your Own Country” it is Doll . Seems The Power Ranger Puppets Of EVERY Country! ” Are Evil”…Please Know The Most of The People Are Not Our Government . I am Sorry You Have Every Right To Be Upset As Do We All Thank You So Much I dont Think Any Of These Labs , and or (Gain of Function) as They Call it Should Be Allowed They all Need to be Held Responsible and So Should OUR GOVERNMENTS.!oh and The Media O.M.G.whats Wrong with These People? Our World is Evil and Just Know They will Be but Not till After the End The “Word” as in the Bible thats been Perverted by Man or the Power Rangers of This World But You Have What They Call “HEART” Protect it and Yourself I am No One But i Search and Research for TRUTH and Real and Also Speak from my Heart and I tell You What Our Creator ? and Others has Recognized and Heard Your Words Across the World Just as i Read and Heard The Story of The Soldier Over in Wuhan, Tried to Get his Accounts on this Covid Virus its Disappeared and So Has He, and He Knew and Said this Would Happen to Him and His Family. Even Though this is World Wide and I Don’t Believe “EVERYONE OF THEM WAS NOT IN ON This.”Maybe the Geneva Convention or Who Knows But as His Story Went ? Fact or Fiction ? i don’t Know but i Believe More then any News Source But There Gov. Had Them also Working on a Cotangent to Make their Less Desirables More Compliant ) the Ones In Concentration Camps Said Protesters and Even some Isis Members?? but Something went Wrong Very Wrong ? IT DID NOT LEAK FROM THE LAB/IT DID NOT COME FROM NO FISH MARKET but Basically his Story Goes on to Tell the Horrors done to the Citizens of Whohan the Pentagon or ? was also Involved Anyways Their Own Government Did a Genocide He was Devastated but my Own Thought is That’s Why China is Trying to Cover it Up and Maybe They wasn’t Told they Would be the fall Gov. to Set this Great Reset Off.. My Heart Breaks That These Governments are Getting Away With this World Wide Destruction of Human Life I Keep asking This So Called God of Love How is This Possible?? i Haven’t Got Many Answers Im sure i Will come Judgment Day , but One Thing keeps Coming Through is That This World has Turned Evil and to Keep the Faith that These People will Be Dealt with We Are All “Gods/ Creators” children There is Only One Race the “Human Race” Those Who are Power Rangers That Have Destroyed this Earth and His Children ” will Not Enter the New World and will Suffer more then we Have on One Hand I am Ok With that On the Other I am Not? So Just Saying Keep up the Good Work You are Doing / you will be Blessed and Know Their Are Others Who Care and Believe You and I for One Will Blast and Keep Sharing your Words how Ever i Can * don’t Listen to Dumbass’es Thank You again We Need To Call Attention to These Labs and OUR GOVERNMENTS they are in the WRONG.. you are in my Prayers

    14. You are the best Dilyana. Keep strong.
      Your work is being linked all over the internet.
      Ordinary people are starting to see it now
      and realise what horrors their governments
      have been up to in their name.
      Thank you so much!

      -From Ireland.

    15. Dilyana – you are an incredible “Freedom Fighter.” The enemy of tyranny it “Truth.” The tool of tyranny is the “Bamboozle.”

      “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” Carl Sagan.

      Thank you for revealing the “Truth.”

    16. Thank You Dilyana – you have done immensely good work to bring awareness to all about the Truth of these horrible crimes against all people who are targets – in any & every way – of these atrocities. The majority of Americans are ignorant of the deeply criminal nature of so many of our (installed; not fairly elected for many generations) government officials. Most people have been taught – indoctrinated – by public/government run school to be willfully ignorant; attacked in body, mind & Spirit… Americans have been drugged up, dumbed down, bombarded with thousands of health-damaging synthetic foods & environmental toxins, bio-incompatable electromagnetic frequencies/EMF pollution, AND propaganda from every official direction. Hidden & complex fraud is easier to ignore than to make the effort to understand; because schooling teaches what to think *instead of* how to think. They took our Declaration of Independence, Constitution & Bill of Rights – and then God – out of our schools… Americans no longer know what they say OR how to be effective authorities over our government (response-able citizens) as our Constitution instructs. We will pay a high cost for allowing ourselves be so violated. Even so, many are waking up from the deep hypnosis imposed upon us and are hungry to know the Truth, come what may. God Bless YOU and ALL who are working to expose & bring to justice the criminals; your relentless & fearless integrity & journalism are deeply appreciated. You have Legions of Heavenly Helpers assigned to assist you – instruct them in gratitude going forward – just thank them for what you need & they deliver. Many Blessings on your House.

    17. Уау, както казват американците!:) Диляна, не знаех за този сайт (следя други българи, също обстойно аргументиращи се по тези тук и други свързани с тях тематики), сега разбрах за него и съм възхитен. Чудесни разследвания, от днес ще следя редовно за нови материали. Не мога да скрия и че съм доволен от високите оценки за една българка на будните – но не в промотирания новонормален смисъл – американци и западноевропейци. При тяхното изобилие от достъп до отлични изобличващи разследвания, веднага разпознават също толкова добрата работа (на нивото на добрите западни, имаща също и уникален почерк, смея да твърдя).

      Благодаря ти за материалите, бъди здрава и все така смела, за да ни доставяш още отлични материали, осветляващи скритите и изопачени факти.:)

    18. Great investigative story with facts. Excellent deep dive to bring out the truth which the American government is lying about as usual. So corrupted are these people its sickening
