Death in Ukraine – Mystery Pandemic


Pandemic • adjective (of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or large part of the world. • noun an outbreak of such a disease.


Has Biowar broken out in Europe?

A mystery disease, thought at first to be swine flu, has ravaged Ukraine – infecting some of the 1.4 million in the country hit by a pandemic of respiratory disease in the past month. 189 have died, according to official Ukrainian sources. The body count is much higher on the Internet.

Ukrainian President Victor Yuschenko went on national TV and Radio November 4 to declare that “Infections of viral origin, including the A/H1N1 flu, are rapidly spreading across Ukraine….The emergency is evident in the scale of the epidemic: the speed and the geography of its spreading, rapid progress of the illness and the exceptional number of deaths… People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. …This is absolutely unprecedented and inconceivable in the 21st century!”

Schools and universities were closed for three weeks and all mass gatherings, including campaign rallies heading into the January 17 presidential contest have been banned.

In began in mid-October: there was a growing number of cases of what many thought was Swine Flu (A/H1N1) in the western part of the Ukraine. But what doctors saw there was puzzling—The first deaths in Teropyl and Lviv were from an ‘atypical pneumonia’ which featured the passing of much blood .

“The flu doesn’t cause hemorrhagic bloodletting and pneumonia.” one ER doctor told the UK’s The Daily Mail. The exotic and deadly Ebola and Marburg viruses, which have no cure, induce those very hemorrhagic symptoms. Some experts were speculating that the H1N1 swine flu virus had mutated into something similar to the Spanish Flu that killed millions around the world in 1918. But the World Heath Organization has said that it has found no evidence the virus has mutated after examining samples taken from 34 victims.

Combine this with reports (officially unconfirmed) by people in western Ukraine that low flying light airplanes were aerosol spraying something over Ukrainian cities, and a nation-wide panic ensued.

People on the ground whom we’ve contacted say large swaths of the Ukranian populace believe the epidemic is due to germ warfare being conducted against them by the United States. Or Russia… or China, Israel, Iran, the Brits, Blackwater. Who knows? One reliable source told us, “They are definitely panicking and talking about bio war.”

We are paying special attention to one curious Ukrainian firm MaxWell- Bio Systems, headed by Ken Alibek, formerly Katian Alibekov, the head of the Soviet Union’s clandestine bio war efforts. During the Cold War Alibekov’s team worked outside the box – putting bubonic plague onto missile warheads and genetically-modifying massive industrial-size quantities of anthrax, ebola and smallpox into deadly “designer germs”.

Alibek’s fellows had even cultivated an especially virulent form of the Marburg virus named “Variant U” after a fellow scientist (Ustinov, Nikolai) met a horrific, bloody death after accidentally becoming infected.

Alibek defected to the west in 1992 and after a lengthy debriefing went into business with the US Government—consulting for the CIA, testifying to Congress about Saddam’s Russian germ connections and starting a graduate program for G-men and spooks in the state of this evil art at a Virginia university . He outlined his bio-warrior escapades in his 1999 book Biohazard.


But in 2007, Alibek suddenly re-located to Kiev and established Maxwell Bio-Systems to develop and market “alternative cancer cures”. Many eyebrows were raised.

Suspicions were fueled when it was learned that MaxWell’s President was Peter Leitner, a veteran Washington insider who previously headed a Republican task force on bio defense and was the President of the Higgins Counterterrorism Research Center where he has helped to train law enforcement, first responders, military, FBI, and CIA personnel. He was also a Senior Fellow and Professor with the Center for Advanced Defense Studies responsible for Terrorism, Intelligence, and Cyber War issues.

Heading up PR for the biocorp was Alex Meerovich a veteran operative for the U.S. State Department with postings in Belarus, St. Petersberg, and Prague

Clearly, among the anti-cancer crowd, MaxWell was way spookier than Sloan Kettering. But that didn’t deter George Bush’s Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez from actually jetting into Kiev to cut the ribbon in June 2008 at the grand opening of MaxWell’s huge $90 million state of the art production facility.

During the making of Anthrax War we interviewed Alibek at MaxWell HQ in Kiev, his bodyguards nearby. He denied biowar games in Ukraine, and insisted it was all about giving something back to the community. He shared with us his fervent wish that that today’s bio-warriors “are not about to destroy all mankind.” Food for thought, indeed.

Presumably still a traitor to the Russian state, why Alibek left the leafy hills of McLean Virginia for Kiev is worth pondering. Many are interested in what he’s up to over there. A Russian in our employ, with intelligence ties, grabbed several snapshots of Ken when we visited Kiev and wanted us to tell him the square footage of Alibek’s new business digs. And to please draw a diagram of the layout. We politely deferred.

And now just two years later comes all this Death in Ukraine. British medical teams are studying the mystery. Was it a test? An accident? A warning? An early salvo of a deadly dance in an undeclared biological arms race which Vladimir Putin omminously warned about last February in his address to the Russian Duma? No matter what, it’s certainly big news. Naturally the mainstream media has missed the story completely or spun it so as not to offend the International Bio-Terror Military Industrial Complex.

Thus, thank goodness for the Interwebs. The blogosphere has a few Bio-war Correspondents who seem to get the Big Picture. Dr. Rebecca Carley goes too far with the One World Government analysis for our tastes but we trust her news instincts. She gets our Prescient Pulitzer Prize for this recent great lede:

“The biggest story on the Planet today is the outbreak of a very serious Advanced Biological War virus in Europe. The second biggest story on the Planet is the suppression of this story for almost two weeks by the corporate owned mainstream news media….
