Well, this isn’t going to end well.
What happens when your country, once great, is no more than a nuclear-armed gas station these days with an annual GDP about the same as the state of Texas and you’ve got more powerful enemies as neighbors?
No problem: Just come up with a way to kill the entire world in the event your nation is attacked someday and on the verge of defeat.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Russia is reportedly working on weaponizing the Ebola virus as a final “doomsday” weapon, ensuring that those remaining on the planet after a nuclear exchange die an even more horrific death.
Experts fear Russia could weaponise the deadly Ebola virus as part of a catastrophic biological weapons project.
Unit 68240 of Moscow’s FSB spy agency – linked to the Salisbury Novichok poisonings – is thought to be behind the programme codenamed Toledo.
It is believed the unit is researching both Ebola and the even-more deadly Marburg virus.
The diseases have caused devastating outbreaks and lead to organ failure and severe internal bleeding.
A former UK military intelligence insider fears that Moscow could be going beyond studying the diseases and is instead examining how to weaponise them via the Toledo programme.
Toledo is a city in Spain which was devastated by the plague. A city in Ohio which saw a major flu outbreak in 1918 also shares the same name.
Investigators from the non-profitmaking OpenFacto organisation say they have discovered the Russian Ministry of Defence has a secret unit called the 48th Central Research Institute which is studying ‘rare and lethal’ pathogens.
Moscow’s 48th Central Research Institute is linked to the 33rd Central Research Institute which helped develop deadly nerve agent Novichok.
Novichok was used to poison former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in 2018.
The US has slapped both institutes with sanctions for ‘likely conducting research for the biological weapons’, reports claim.
The 48th institute is reportedly supplying data to FSB unit 68240, which is spearheading the Toledo programme.
In case you were wondering, Ebola has a death rate of 50 percent.
