Those who live near the Lugar Laboratory in Tbilisi are under a big risk

Summary of Disinformation

The patients of Mengele, like people who live close to the Lugar laboratory, did not guess the threat, however later understood that they were placed in death camps. I warn those who live near the Lugar Laboratory that they are under a big risk. The locals who settled there were misled that this was an ordinary laboratory and nothing else.

By building such laboratories America is avoiding the convention banning biological weapons.  The Lugar Laboratory is located not far from the airport, this means that loading bombs and moving viruses to other facilities from there would not take a lot of time. According to one scenario, America is trying to continue its fight in Syria by using this biological weapon.

Disproof

No evidence given.

The Central Public Health Reference Laboratory (CPHRL), the so called Lugar Laboratory was opened in 2011 under the Framework Agreement signed in 1997 and the Agreement on Cooperation in the Area of Prevention of Proliferation of Technology, Pathogens and Expertise Related to the Development of Biological Weapons signed between the U.S. Department of Defense and the Georgian Defense Ministry in 2002. The United States provided a total of USD 350 million for the construction and technical equipment of the laboratory. In 2013 the laboratory moved to subordination of the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC) and from 2018 the Government of Georgia will assume responsibility for full funding and operation of the Lugar center and laboratory network.
