Do you remember the flurry of stories last spring about U.S.-funded biolabs in Ukraine? That was when Putin was lining up his tanks at the Ukrainian border and preparing to invade, and questions abounded: Did we really fund biolabs in Ukraine? What were they doing? Did they make bioweapons? How long had that been going on? How safe were the labs? Did we run them? Who else was involved?
Contradictory stories flooded the news. “Fact”-checkers piled on. John Kirby, Coordinator of Strategic Communications for the White House National Security Council, said the U.S. was working on “pandemic prevention” and did not operate biological weapons labs as part of its biological research in Ukraine. But he also said the projects underway there had been “closed” and the labs thoroughly “deactivated” before the Russian invasion, casting doubt on the innocence of what they’d been doing there.
Russians took full advantage of that, saying the U.S. was scurrying to hide something. And, sadly, our government has hidden so much --- lied to us so much --- that we can’t believe anything it says, any more than we can believe the Russians or Ukrainians. After several months, the Ukrainian biolab story essentially went away, as stories so often do.
But a few days ago, GATEWAY PUNDIT ran a shocking story about Hunter Biden’s association with Ukrainian biolab company Metabiota, which apparently owned one of the 46 (!) biolabs the U.S. had reportedly partnered with in that country. Jim Hoft reported that President Zelenskyy had sent out a government decree to destroy “ALL INFORMATION” on Metabiota on the very same day --- February 24, 2022 --- Russia invaded. Witnesses saw fire outside Ukraine’s intel headquarters that day.
The story quotes one observer who tweeted: “Did Zelensky keep some of the more incriminating documents against Hunter at Metabiota and Burisma to use as extortion against Joe Biden to get more money and weapons? We all know the answer.”
Well, we don’t KNOW the answer, but we know it could easily be true and would explain a lot.
As GATEWAY PUNDIT reports, “Zelensky sent out a decree on February 24, 2022, for government officials to destroy all information on the Ukrainian Research Anti-Plague Institute, Mechnikov Institute of Health of Ukraine, and the Zhytomyr Regional Laboratory Centers of the Ministry of Ukraine, who all worked with Metabiota Inc. (Metabiota) scientists.” According to a photo of a statement about the document translated into English, it said this was done by “the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine with the participation of specialists of the Security Service of Ukraine in connection with the conduct of martial law in Ukraine...[who] organized the devastating destruction of personal files of servicemen, employees and staff...which worked together with scientists at Metabiota Inc., Battelle.”
Some speculated that documents were being burned “to cover up their affiliation to U.S. biological malfeasance.” We can’t verify the contents of burned-up documents, but video evidence does show that...something...was being burned that day as the Russians revved up their tanks.
It was hard to know at first what to make of this story, so we applied our “72-hour rule” before commenting. There might be aspects of it that, as far as we ever learn, will remain speculative. But upon reflection, it seems this might have something to do with the classified documents that Biden’s DOJ suddenly seems so desperate to keep under wraps. Odd how crackhead Hunter, international man of mystery, so often ends up being connected to key global players who line their pockets while skirting the law.
In Scott Adams’ Friday podcast, Episode 2008 (starting at 29:21), he cautiously looked into what he called a “very complicated” story about “Ukraine and the Biden crime family,” drawing on posts from pundit “Kanekoa” on Twitter and Substack. At this point, he doesn’t know if all of it’s true but is passing it along so we can assess for ourselves.
In 2012, he said, a Ukrainian news report said the U.S. Defense Department was “building biological weapons laboratories in cities across Ukraine as part of its biological threat reduction program.” At the time, it wasn’t reported as a big deal, even though it should be obvious that the way to figure out how to reduce your risk is to CREATE the risk. (Doesn’t that sound like Pfizer’s alleged ‘directed evolution’ of COVID variants, as reported by Project Veritas?) In 2012, the labs were being upgraded by the U.S. to research control of anthrax, typhoid, cholera and much more.
The story, though, actually goes back to 2005, when Sens. Dick Lugar and (yes) Barack Obama were instrumental in getting a $15 million agreement between the U.S. Department of Defense and Ukraine’s Health Ministry to support bioresearch in Kiev, Lvov and Odessa..
According to this report, details of the agreement were to be “withheld from public disclosure.” But “state secrets of Ukraine” were to be shared with our Defense Department, it says cryptically.
Of course --- and Adams pointed this out --- one reason to have these labs in other countries is so you can do things you couldn’t legally do here. Safety standards are lower. Also, “if you pump money into a corrupt place, you could probably skim some off for yourself.” Also, you’ve got the money laundering opportunities. Ah, he knows how Ukraine works.
Kanekoa reports that Hunter Biden was financially involved with the Ukrainian biolabs long before we knew anything about him, through a company called --- and here’s that name again --- Metabiota, “a pandemic tracking and response firm.” (Adams laughed at this and mused, “I wonder how well a company like that would do if a pandemic broke out.”)
Scott then moved to the part of the story we’ve been covering the past few days, that Hunter’s boss at Burisma was the Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky. Hunter, recall, was getting paid big bucks for being the son of a U.S. Vice President who was also Obama’s “point man” on Ukraine. Kolomoisky is also the financier who backed Zelenskyy when he was running for President --- paying for “security, lawyers and vehicles” --- and, before that, even provided money for a TV show when he was a rising comedian. “So, essentially, Zelenskyy and Hunter Biden were controlled by the same Ukrainian billionaire,” Adams said. “Interesting.”
He noted that Zelenskyy was also “the beneficiary of a web of offshore firms created around 2012.”
That was the same year Zelenskyy’s media company received $41 million, paid out of “this billionaire’s private bank.” Of course, we know this was PrivatBank, the same bank that paid Hunter.
Also in 2012, research on Burisma Holdings FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT (we thought we’d emphasize that) determined who the owner was; they found it was Kolomoisky. Remember, 2012 was also when the U.S. was upgrading the biolabs over there. It seems to have been a big year.
So we have Zelenskyy and Hunter Biden both working for the same Ukrainian billionaire at the same time. It might also be noted that Kolomoisky funded three Ukrainian battalions that have been accused of war crimes against children in Eastern Ukraine.
In 2020, our ‘Justice’ Department accused Kolomoisky of laundering $4 billion from PrivatBank into American properties. We’ve reported on his more recent travails, during which Zelenskyy turned against him, stripping him of his property and citizenship. It’s here where motivations and details are still murky. Biden has sent $100 million to Zelenskyy.
Scott admitted this story is getting to a place that it’s harder for him to go, but said it’s credible. Going back to 2005, the WASHINGTON POST described those biolabs as “part of a Cold War network of anti-plague stations.” They admitted that the research did, in effect, create bioweapons. President Obama, according to the Twitter thread by “Clandestine,” “opened the floodgates to the Deep State and created biological weapons programs with the Ukrainian government, and established connections for U.S. oligarchs to build biolab companies in the lawless land of Ukraine.” That’s his opinion, but it should offer good direction for researchers.
More from this thread: When civil war erupted in Ukraine and Victoria Nuland was facilitating regime change (!), she reportedly said there was a risk of Russians getting their hands on biological weapons research. According to Clandestine, the U.S. picked Zelenskyy as “puppet” leader and now has control over Ukraine. Biden has visited there 13 times, securing U.S. funding to Ukrainian oligarchs.
Clandestine’s conclusion is, “The reason all of our tax dollars are in Ukraine: because Ukraine is a deep-state proxy controlled by the ruling class, the DNC and George Soros.”
Again, these last few paragraphs are speculative. But the pieces Adams presents do fit. (And the other details about Ukraine we’ve brought you before today also fit.) He says that even with just the part we KNOW is true, we can conclude that “the Biden family is a crime family.”
