Inside the US government’s top-secret bioweapons lab Business Insider

About 85 miles southwest of Salt Lake City is the US government’s top-secret bioweapons lab. It’s called the Dugway Proving Ground. The 77-year-old facility covers about 800,000 acres. That’s just a little larger than the entire state of Rhode Island. And it tests some of the deadliest chemical, biological, radiological, and explosive hazards on Earth.


There was an awful missile attack on the capital of Donetsk March 14. The Ukrainian missile armed with cluster bombs was aimed at the downtown area, a completely civilian sector. DPR defenders shot down the missile, but one of the cluster bombs survived and exploded when  it hit the ground. Between 20 and 28 reported dead, including children, and many wounded.

Attack on Donetsk, March 14, 2022

As a result of the Tochka-U strike in the center of Donetsk, 20 people were killed (most likely more), including children. Also a large number of wounded. The missile went to the center of Donetsk, the air defense most likely worked late and the missile was actually shot down over the center of the city. As a result, cluster munitions mowed down people on the streets. In the event of a rocket falling in the city center, there would be even more victims.
Obviously, there were no serious military facilities here, just a terrorist attack with the aim of killing civilians. Which Ukraine has systematically committed for 8 years in the Donbass. Sensing the impending defeat, the Ukrainian Nazis are simply eager to leave more victims and destruction in their wake.

Review of Anne Applebaum’s “Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine” History News Network

Every section has important omissions, errors and distortions. For example, she defines the Ukrainian word Holodomor, “a term derived from the Ukrainian words for hunger-holod-and extermination-mor.” According to multiple dictionaries, “mor” in Ukrainian means “plague, pestilence.” The verb form of this word, “moriti,” can mean extermination, for example of rats or flies, and it can also mean “to starve” or “to exhaust.” But as it is written, “Holodomor” means something like “famine-plague” or “severe famine” rather than “extermination by famine.”
