A top Russian microbiologist formerly in charge of the country’s repository of the planet’s most deadly diseases and viruses – including smallpox, Ebola, and Marburg – has vanished without a trace, reports Will Stewart in Moscow.
In 1994, political unrest in Moscow prompted fears about the security of the Ebola virus and variola stocks stored there. In July of the same year, without first seeking permission from WHO, the Russian government transferred its collection of variola virus strains from the Moscow institute to the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology (Vector) in the remote Siberian town of Koltsovo, outside Novosibirsk.
The WHO reluctantly approved the transfer after the fact. This development was deeply troubling to the U.S. because Ken Alibek (a Russian defector eds.), had implicated the Vector laboratory in the Soviet biological warfare program, including the development of the smallpox weapon.
Professor Ken Alibek also alleged that Russia had retained an undeclared cache of variola virus at the Virology Center of the Scientific-Research Institute of Microbiology, a Ministry of Defense laboratory near the city of Sergiev Posad (formerly Zagorsk).
During the Soviet period, this facility had allegedly mass-produced as weaponized Ebola and variola viruses. It remained shrouded in secrecy and off-limits to Westerners.
In response to Alibek’s revelations, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) became increasingly preoccupied with the potential use of Ebola and smallpox as a military or terrorist weapon and the lack of effective medical defenses against the disease.
Circumstantial evidence obtained by the CIA suggested that undeclared stocks of variola virus might exist in several countries suspected of having biological warfare programs, including Iraq, Iran, North Korea (among others VX-gas), and others unnamed.
A few scientific laboratories also reported discovering and destroying vials of the variola virus that had been retained inadvertently in laboratory freezers, suggesting that other poorly secured samples might exist that could fall into the hands of terrorists.
Heightening these concerns was the growing vulnerability of the U.S. civilian population to a deliberate attack with the variola virus. Most countries had halted the routine smallpox vaccination of their civilian populations soon after 1980 when WHO certified the eradication of the disease.
Accordingly, the limited supplies of smallpox vaccines available in the mid-1990s stoked fears that the deliberate release of the variola virus by a rogue state or a terrorist organization would trigger a rapidly spreading epidemic, posing a major threat to international health and security.
And now February 2017, Professor Ilya G. Drozdov, who was for five years head research at the center; ‘Vector, Koltsovo, Siberia’ disappeared with all knowledge of Moscow’s bio-warfare Ebola and smallpox secrets.
It is known that he has been put on Interpol’s wanted list but vanishing without a trace is something hard to explain. This scene which has unfolded reveals that after all the Ebola epidemic which struck West Africa was deliberately tested as a bio-weapon by the American government.
Now this publication will be clear to everyone that Ebola can be prepared by scientists just like how someone can prepare his/her food in the kitchen. And perhaps Professor Ilya G. Drozdov will appear again with horrific results. Results are performed in many bio-weapon factories in this rotten world.
Professor Ilya G. Drozdov, Director General, State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology VECTOR, Novosibirsk Region, Russian Federation was no more or less a participant of the ‘WHO Advisory Committee on Variola Virus Research Report of the Eighth Meeting Geneva, Switzerland 16 –17 November 2006.’

Now the Russians are afraid that terrorists will attack with an Ebola virus to cause the estimated death of over 30 million people worldwide. And who will start all this? You’ll never know, perhaps Professor Ilya G. Drozdov because he has the knowledge to prepare both Ebola and smallpox viruses.
The same knowledge as the North Korean leader who assassinated his half-brother Kim Jung Nam with the so-called extinct VX-gas. The sad part of it all is the coverups when bio-weapons are released.
An investigation could have revealed that the American government was responsible for the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia but in a world of hypocrisy, ruled by the dollar and corrupt judiciary system, the American government enjoys impunity once again after each crime against humanity. The world is watching.
