Recently, Russian Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin called for an independent investigation into the origins of COVID-19 under the auspices of the UN in a Telegram post, adding that the US runs a whopping 336 overseas bio-laboratories allegedly capable of creating such a virus.

“I strongly agree that an independent international investigation into the origins of the global COVID epidemic is absolutely essential,” Ron Unz, a US technology entrepreneur, political activist, writer, and the publisher of The Unz Review, told Sputnik. “By reasonable estimates, over 18 million people have died worldwide, including more than a million Americans, and the people of my own country should be in the forefront in demanding answers about how it happened. Given current international conflicts, arranging such a non-partisan body might be difficult, but it should be attempted. I think that some very prominent Americans, such as Prof. Jeffrey Sachs and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. would be excellent choices as senior figures in such an international investigation.”

Russian Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin created a poll on his Telegram account last week asking whether his followers were inclined to believe that Sars-CoV-2 was a man-made virus. Out of 352,400 respondents 94% said that the virus was artificially created, 2% did not agree, while 4% said they did not care.

“Scientists from different countries have found evidence of the laboratory origin of COVID-19,” the Russian official wrote on October 29. “There are 336 biological laboratories in 30 countries capable of creating such a virus under the control of the Pentagon (…)The UN should conduct an independent investigation into Washington’s involvement in the emergence of the coronavirus.”

‘Synthetic Origin of SARS-CoV-2

Volodin’s post came on the heels of research by Valentin Bruttel, a scientist at the University Hospital of Würzburg, and his colleagues published on October 20, 2022. In a report titled “Endonuclease fingerprint indicates a synthetic origin of SARS-CoV-2,” the scientists argued that the novel coronavirus is “an anomaly, more likely a product of synthetic genome assembly than natural evolution.” The scientific paper has not yet gone through the process of peer review.

“I’ve read the Bruttel preprint and found their analysis very solidly formulated and quite persuasive,” said Unz. “I’ve also discussed the paper with a couple of individuals having far more technical expertise than myself and they felt the same way. Obviously, the work still needs to undergo peer review and perhaps strong arguments on the other side will appear, but as of now, I believe it makes a very powerful case that the original COVID virus was bioengineered, reinforced by all the previous arguments pointing towards the same conclusion.”

The issue of COVID’s origin has been surrounded by controversies from the outset of the pandemic. Thus, the Trump administration pointed the finger at China, claiming the virus could have been created at the Wuhan bio-laboratory while presenting zero evidence to back the claim. Remarkably, having assumed the Oval Office, Joe Biden followed Trump’s suit and joined the blame game. For its part, Chinese media and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) questioned Washington’s handling of the pandemic and its non-transparent biolab activities.

The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) appeared to be the first to produce a classified report warning about an “out-of-control disease epidemic” in the Wuhan area of China in the second week of November 2019. However, the Pentagon rushed to deny that such a report ever existed. To add more to the controversy, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint exercise with national, state, and local organizations from January 2019 to August 2019 in order to test the capacity of the federal government to respond to a pandemic of influenza originating in China.

To cap it off, neither a COVID-19 “patient zero” nor a “guilty bat” has been found, which means it’s unclear when and where exactly SARS-CoV-2 started to circulate among humans.

In May 2022, Professors Jeffrey D. Sachs and Neil L. Harrison published a report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary scientific journal, suggesting that the virus could be artificial and called for an independent inquiry into its possible American origins.

Boston Virologists’ Reckless ‘Gain-of-Function’ Experiment

In July 2022, Professor Sachs told the Iranian media that “the US government was sponsoring a lot of dangerous genetic manipulation of SARS-like viruses and has not yet honestly revealed the nature of that work.” Sachs suggested that SARS-CoV-2 could have emerged as a result of a biotech “blunder,” ruling out the possibility that the virus was developed as a bioweapon.

Meanwhile, in mid-October 2022, a group of virologists at Boston University claimed that they had managed to create a chimeric SARS-CoV-2 virus with the spike protein of Omicron and the remaining viral structures from the original virus strain that inflicts severe disease and has an 80% kill rate.

The study triggered a wave of criticism in the US over “gain-of-function” research on SARS-CoV-2. Indeed, last year the National Institutes of Health (NIH) officially stated that it would not support gain-of-function research, following deep concerns voiced by US congressmen amid the debate on COVID’s origins. The scientists tried to refute the criticism by saying that the study was conducted in mice only, and cannot be generalized to humans. That did not help, as concerns persisted.

“The bioengineering of a new and far more dangerous COVID strain by those Boston University researchers seemed extremely reckless and dangerous to me, and arguably should have already been prohibited under existing American law,” said Unz. “Some people believe that the laboratory in question should be shut down and the researchers prosecuted for such a serious and dangerous violation (…) The deliberate production of such extremely deadly biological agents was originally prohibited by an international agreement supported by President Richard Nixon during the Cold War nearly fifty years ago, and the American government made a disastrous mistake in reversing that decision.”

While the Boston virologists’ experiment does not per se confirm that the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 was bioengineered, it appears to demonstrate that this could have been possible, according to the publisher.

“It does demonstrate the extreme recklessness of many of our civilian or academic virus researchers, and if they could so easily produce a much more dangerous version of COVID, we should probably assume that America’s very heavily funded biowarfare labs are also doing the same sort of thing, but without publishing their results in academic journals,” Unz suggested.

As new information concerning the potential origins of COVID continues to emerge, the issue of bio-research transparency has taken on a new significance, regardless of whether SARS-CoV-2 was natural or artificial.

“American political leaders have loudly demanded that China and other countries open their labs for public inspection. Such a policy seems reasonable, but since America has the world’s largest and oldest biowarfare infrastructure, which has probably absorbed $100 billion or more of government funding over the decades, the first step is obviously for our own country to open all of its biolabs for international inspection,” emphasized the political activist, adding that “the need for international controls and prohibitions becomes obvious.”

    Burnt out lightbulb Ron Unz denies that the SARS2 spike protein is an HIV chimera, while also insisting the SARS2 spike protein vaccines are totally safe, even as SARS2 vaccination is perfectly correlated with an historic surge in all cause mortality, as people die not only of cardiovascular disease, but also cancer and pneumonia. As diseases that used to be rare, like Monkeypox and RSV, become suddenly common. As the CDC threatens a superflu.

    Oh that’s right, Ron loved the part of RFK Jr.’s book which argued that HIV does not cause immunodeficiency. In fact it seems to be the only part of Jr’s book that Ron agreed with.

    the entire purpose of “gain of function” research is to create bioweapons, the fig leaf claim that they are trying to stay ahead of natural mutations is ridiculous at best.
    fauci’s own pet mad scientist ralph baric, holds a 2015 patent on attaching bat spike proteins to an existing coronavirus, kind of hard to hide that fact so of course they just ignore it.

  3. Iris says:

    The USA, the UK and France have just, at the UN Security Council, vetoed against a probe of the 40+ US-funded bio-laboratories secretly operated in the Ukraine.

    Why did they? If this research was benign, why not be open about as China was when she opened the Wuhan Institute of Virology to the WHO fact-finding delegation?

    This vote is a spit in the face of the 18 millions who died of Covid, and of the hundreds of millions whose life was devastated by it.

    This is what are really worth as Western citizens: nothing.
    We don’t even deserve a semblance of investigation, a pretence of explanation, for our dead ones untimely taken by a deliberately-manufactured disease.

    The US veto of Russia’s BWC Article 6 referral completes Russia’s justification of armed force. The US is using UN Charter Article 27§3 for impunity for its use of banned biological weapons. Russia’s sole recourse is Article 51, self defense.

    When Russia wins this war, and it will, it can justify anything it did to the US command structure, including nukes, since the precedent of Hiroshima and Nagasaki justified nuclear attack with Japan’s “sneak attack” undeclared war. US aggression with banned biological weapons was undeclared, and in fact was covertly conducted to obscure attribution of internationally wrongful acts in breach of jus cogens.

    Sadly, scientists are people. Funding is tight, there is incredible pressure to produce sexy and exciting results in order to get funded. And scientists chafe at restrictions on what they are doing, because they are under so much pressure to produce.

    I work in a major research university, and I can say with total certainty that all of these “high secure” bio research labs leak like sieves. People are people, as the days turns into weeks and the weeks turn into years, there WILL be noses scratched at the wrong time, needle pricks, accidentally picking something up with the wrong hand… and the overwhelming majority of these lapses will not get reported, because nobody wants trouble.

    After 9/11, the US congress funded an explosion of high-danger biolabs to be placed in the middle of every major city (and presumably, every congressional district). I feel so much safer (sarcasm).

    Maybe we really do need to do research on dangerous viruses, but spreading these labs out all over the world in the middle of busy cities where technicians routinely leave for lunch and commute back and forth from home, is madness. These labs should be staffed like oil rigs: just a few, in the middle of nowhere, the technicians should get paid crazy money and work months long shifts with quarantines and blood work-ups before leaving… It would annoy the scientists because it’s much more convenient to have labs in a major city, but they can probably supervise most of this remotely.

    And here’s the kicker: COVID either developed in a lab and leaked out, or came from an unsanitary “wet market”. WHY HAVEN’T WE SHUT BOTH OF THESE DOWN? Does it ultimately matter where COVID came from, as both of these possible sources are provable risk factors? We could mostly end the seasonal flu if we really wanted to. What the heck is wrong with us?

    Forget the ‘wet market’ theory, it was just part of the cover story. Viruses take time to adapt to a new host. When Covid-19 appeared it was already fit for purpose, it was/is considerably more contagious amongst humans than amongst bats.

    I agree with you about research on dangerous viruses, if it is to be done at all it should be done under multinational supervision, with draconian quarantine arrangements and as far as possible from human and animal populations (the middle of the Pacific maybe or preferably on the moon)

    at the risk of sounding like a broken record, i must reiterate that the guillotine is the most clean, green and humane means of execution. when i say clean, i mean as in clean cut, (remember when good boys, were described as clean cut?), for there will be blood but that’s what makes it a fan favorite. let’s face facts, that’s what the people really want, this is why blood sports are so popular, so combine that with the healthy, mass catharsis of seeing the villians that murdered grandma, brought to swift and sudden justice……the world wide pay per view, would smash all existing records and could establish a victims relief fund. to this we could add all the seized assets of every criminal involved in these war crimes and crimes against humanity.

For the nth time, how many among the 18 million really died of Covid and how many died b/c authorities forbid ivermectin and HCQ or b/c they were given antivirals with known lethal after-effects or b/c they were put on ventilators? Treat regular flu patients like Covid patients were treated and see how many will survive. Oh wait, they did treat regular flu patients like Covid patients, given that the PCR test didn’t make the difference.
    First, stop the genocide with vaccines then we can talk about the origin of the virus. Do you realise that we can never know for sure where the virus came from if nobody ever gets indicted for the Covid scam? Do you realise that the only way to get to the incontrovertible truth is to prosecute the scammers? Without trial, we will forever be reduced to suppositions that TPTB will happily dismiss as conspiracy theories.

    As it stands, this sentence is untrue and cannot be justified. No doubt the problem has arisen from simple clumsiness in expressing the writer’s intended meaning.

    “The possibility that the virus was developed as a bioweapon” cannot, of course, be “ruled out” by the mere suggestion that it was released by mistake. The two possibilities are alternatives, and the fact that one is true would not mean that the other is necessarily false.

    Remember also that the Covid fatality figures were inflated by ludicrously inclusive criteria such as ‘Death within 28 days of a positive test’. Given that the average age of a Covid fatality was 80+ (and mostly with multiple co-morbidities) the chances of death within a 28 day period (completely regardless of Covid) was hardly insignificant. Imagine the results if the same criteria was used to establish numbers for ‘vaccine’ fatalities.

    Additionally, in the UK for example, Covid infected people were cleared out of hospitals and placed back in care homes, to make way for hypothetical multitudes of imminent Covid emergency cases. Those hypothetical cases never materialised but the policy of placing infected patients in care homes resulted in massive fatalities amongst the elderly. It is impossible to imagine that the consequences of that policy were not foreseen, mass murder is the only way to describe it. I’m sure the long-term savings on geriatric care were considerable.

  55. “that inflicts severe disease and has an 80% kill rate.”


    That figure is for mice, which have been selected to not resist so much to the virus.

    Mouse death rate with the original virus is 100%. So that this new chimeris virus is not what it looks like.

  56. This vote is a spit in the face of the 18 millions who died of Covid, and of the hundreds of millions whose life was devastated by it.

    It is not the data currently available here:

    Spreading fear is what the fascists are doing. It allows controlling people.

    This virus is dangerous for old people with comorbidities. That’s why it is dangerous in the land of the obese.

    Why not turn the tables on them and dish out what Chomsky recommended for unvaccinated: all removed from. the society they have harmed to a remote island without food…

    GO to a hospital and check out how many are there–fake actors and actresses eating up the tax payers’ Money with fake symptoms–throw them out–the entire crew of them complaining about Covid–toss them on the street—fake death comes next,

    USA should be punted from the United Nations. USA only does what it wants and screw the UN—above the UN—NO –kick them out –they can make America Great at Home –nobody needs these bums internationally –all they do is cause trouble killing and destroying and lying —-

    With low Vitamin D levels, rife among black-skinned people living at high latitudes (compared to their ancestral homes of only a few generations past), and more markedly in winter. Meanwhile, in Austfailia, the ABC’s pet ivermectin denouncer (April 2020, declaring it ‘sheep dip’)has been running a campaign AGAINST Vitamin D supplementation!

  62. Why US Should Open All of Its Biolabs for Inspection

    Sure, in a perfect world, but good luck with that.

  63. MarkU says:

    What an ignorant hateful old bastard Chomsky has turned out to be. It staggers the imagination to think that the co-author of Manufacturing Consent can be gullible enough to uncritically accept any official narrative. His attitude to dissent is unbelievably evil and vicious, damn him to hell.

    What you say is correct but it is still fucking around with dangerous viruses and shouldn’t be happening at all.

    Thanks for the precision; I was wondering. Lethality was more like 5%. But the combination of omicron’s infectiousness with the lethality of the original strain is still a very ominous perspective, which may explain Beijing’s paranoia about Covid. They are probably acting on specific intelligence.

    I’m not sure what to make of these statistics (Mr Unz’s or yours). But the official French statistics institute INSEE has published rather instructive figures on French excess mortality (inclusive of all causes) for the first 8 months of the past few years (for comparison, because stats are in only until August for 2022).

    2019 = 409 789
    2020 = 430 816
    2021 = 439 315
    2022 = 443 200

    At first blush, it shows no positive impact from vaccinations (in spite of 124 mln doses injected in 2021); and possibly a negative one, accounting for the continuing climb in excess mortality.

    Of course, it will be more reliable when we have the full statistics for 2022 and can compare with whole-year data.

    I have no idea what bias, if any, is introduced by focusing on months 1 through 8. It would have been better had they compared moving 12-month windows straddling civil years.

    I can’t find the article where I found these data. I seem to remember it was on

    I don’t think he is gullible or ignorant. Evil and vicious, yes. I think he has always been a limited hangout liar by omission and obfuscation, just as the new “truth teller” Jeffery Sachs is.
    Wasn’t it years ago that Chomsky said that the Jewish lobby was not powerful. that AARP was much more powerful with its massive membership? Was he being ‘gullible’ then?

    Agreed, Id. this grotesque and murderous covidiotic fraud has the self-chosen’s fingerprints all over it.

    When enough people realize that, it’s going to be next to impossible to contain the resulting rage directed against them.

  69. @Political Science 101

    As far as we know, the USA is the only regime that put biowar labs on russia’s borders, 5,000 miles from its own borders. There’s no allegation or evidence of similar Russian aggression or preparation for aggression against the usa, “uk” or israel.

    Open the US labs for inspection.
    Then close them forever.

  70. Do you have aspergers syndrome like Elon Musk…can you not just acknowledge my comment and say why thank you for that input…why do you and all of the other freaks on this site have to reference everything to themselves….are you one of those caricatures who were laughed at in high school or failed out of first year U because of your self centeredness?
