The U.S. Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command posted an advertisement seeking samples of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and synovial fluid from white Russians.
The advertisement was seen on the Federal Business Opportunities government website which is used to place tenders.
The post distinctly asked for at least 12 RNA samples as well as 27 samples of synovial fluid from Russian people of a European ancestry, according to an RT report.
The technical specifications detailed in a 34-page quotation preparation document were:
- All Normal Human Fresh Frozen (FF) Synovial Tissue and Normal Human Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) samples must be Russian and of Caucasian origin.
- All FF Synovial tissue and RNA samples must come from normal donors, who have no musculoskeletal injuries. This shall be confirmed by pathology.
- All FF synovial tissue must have a weight greater than or at a minimum of 0.25 grams.
- All RNA samples must be frozen.
- Synovial Tissues and RNA samples can be unmatched, meaning from different donors.
- All Synovial Tissue and RNA samples must be HIV, HBV, HCV and syphilis negative.
Additionally, information regarding the sex, age, ethnicity, smoking history, medical history, height, weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) of donors must accompany the samples that are submitted.
The contract also detailed that all the samples must “be collected from Russia and must be Caucasian. The Government will not consider tissue samples from Ukraine.”
There were no specifics on the website explaining what the samples will be used for.
A former member of the UN commission on biological weapons, Igor Nikulin, opined that RNA samples can be used to develop viruses.
“New types of biological weapons are being developed. There’s nothing else that could possibly interest the military department. Most likely, they are weaponized viruses,” Nikulin shared with RT.
“The US is trying to develop various types of biological weapons specifically for specific carriers of this gene pool, and Caucasoids are needed since they constitute the majority of the population of our country.
“This is the same focus group for which they are trying to find the samples. It’s necessary for the viruses to act selectively on one or another ethnic group.”
Igor Nikulin – who is also a military expert – theorized, in a report published by Pravda in 2016, that the United States may have harmed late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez:
“It is not only Hugo Chavez who died because of cancer, but also many other Latin American leaders and at quite a young age. The Americans have corresponding elaborations. They significantly outperform other countries in virology and nanotechnologies. Chavez was probably poisoned at the UN headquarters during the General Assembly in New York. If it had been a unique case, one could have said that it’s an accident, two cases – is a coincidence, three cases – is regularity.”
But, Professor Konstantin Severinov from Rutgers University expressed, to the news agency, that, "the more you know about the genetic diversity of people, the more opportunities you have, in particular, to treat and diagnose diseases.”
RNA is found in all living cells and is needed to translate genetic information into proteins.
“All people are different from one another. That is, the genetic background and the reasons why genetic differences are responsible for some other differences between people are still not understood and are the subject of active study."
