Americans bestowing “Resident Evil” on Tbilisi

2011-03-22 17:58

14928.jpegCentral Referal Laboratory of Public Health has been pompously opened in Georgia. It is supposed to carry out scientific researches in the field of infectious illnesses and epidemiological surveillance. The country's authorities assert that it will conduct only peaceful research work but there are several doubtful facts that prevent one from believing these words.


Various unpleasant rumours about the referal laboratory in Tbilisi appeared a long time ago, for the project was launched in 2006. It puzzled many people, since Georgia has never played the role of a bacteriologic control center. Serious epidemics have passed by the republic's territory all these years. The only exception was an attack of the "pig flu" but even the more protected countries failed to secure themselves against this trouble. Thus, Georgia could hardly be put on the list of states desperately needing research and development centers. However, Mikhail Saakashvili's partners have got a completely different opinion on the matter.

Last week, a large-scale opening ceremony took place. The pathos and the scale of the event were accentuated by the list of guests. It included the names of the country's PM Nikoloz Gilauri, U.S. Ambassador to Georgia John Bass and U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense for nuclear, chemical and biological defense programs Andrew Weber. The construction of the facility cost a lot to American taxpayers. In six years, the USA spent about 100 million dollars on it. The amount itself speaks for the fact that the facility will be used solely for Washington's purposes - the belief in Americans' altruism is typical only of deeply naïve people. If we thoroughly consider the circumstances of the laboratory opening, the true reasons of its establishment in the Georgian territory become quite obvious and very fearing.

Minister of Health Andria Urushadze has already stated that the laboratory opened in Tbilisi reduces the risk of biological hazards not only for Georgia but for Russia as well. Head of the Green Party Georgy Gachechiladze is ready to argue with the minister. In an interview to GeorgiaTimes correspondent, he underlined that the movement he is heading has already spoke out against the construction of such facility in the territory of the country. "We've made a statement that such laboratories are potentially dangerous for Georgia, - Gachechiladze stated. - Building such dangerous objects as an epidemiologic laboratory or an atomic power station in such region as Georgia means deliberately taking a great risk.
