The notorious Lugar laboratory – a research center in Georgia, operating at the expense of the United States – again makes itself felt, and dangerous biological experiments made it to South Ossetia.
This was told by the head of the State Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service of the Republic of South Ossetia Alan Margiev.
In particular, he drew attention to the fact that the African swine fever hit the republic at the very moment when the construction of the Lugar laboratory was completed in 2011. And last year, South Ossetia was struck by an outbreak of nodular dermatitis. “This is a disease of cattle, which has never been observed in the republic before,” Margiev explained.
Moreover, both South Ossetia and Abkhazia were the victims of the invasion of a marble bug. Margiev noted that the insect was found in the areas bordering Georgia, and later it turned out that it was in the Georgian settlements located along the border that large volumes of bugs were concentrated, which seriously hit the agricultural sector of Georgia.
“Bed bugs that live in America give 3 generations a year, while bugs that live in Abkhazia and get there from Georgia give much greater offspring per year,” the expert continued. “There is reason to fear that we are seeing a modified sample that is better able to tolerate temperature extremes and survive chemical attack.”
As News Front previously reported, last fall, the former Minister of State Security of Georgia Igor Giorgadze made a high-profile statement that in the laboratory, which operates near Tbilisi under the auspices of the United States, especially dangerous bacteria and viruses could be produced.
In particular, he referred to the testimonies of the American Jeffrey Silvermann, according to which, in the laboratory of Lugar “produce substances hazardous to health and test them on the local population.”
