Russian Military Intelligence Unit Linked to Mysterious Health Ailments Among U.S. Diplomats

A recent investigative report by Insider, Der Spiegel, and CBS‘s 60 Minutes has revealed a potential link between the mysterious health ailments experienced by U.S. diplomats and a Russian military intelligence unit.

The investigation pointed to Unit 29155 of the Russian GRU as the likely origin of the so-called ‘Havana syndrome’ symptoms encountered by American diplomatic staff in various locations globally.

The Kremlin, through spokesperson Dmitri Peskov, has vehemently dismissed the report, calling the accusations baseless and unfounded.

According to the report, the symptoms first emerged in Cuba in 2016, with subsequent cases reported in China, Europe, and even in Washington DC, raising concerns about the safety of U.S. embassy personnel.

The report highlighted the involvement of senior members of Unit 29155 in the development of non-lethal acoustic weapons, which are believed to have been used in the alleged attacks on U.S. government personnel.

Instances of U.S. government employees suffering from the symptoms were documented in Germany and the UK, indicating a potentially larger scope of the attacks beyond the initial incidents in Havana.

In response to the new findings, the U.S. defense department revealed that a senior official experienced similar symptoms during a NATO summit in Vilnius last year, further underscoring the seriousness of the issue.

The report also detailed the impact of the Havana syndrome on American diplomatic corps, leading to retirements and recruitment challenges within the State Department.

The U.S. government has been actively investigating these incidents, deploying medical experts to study the cases and providing assistance to affected staff and their families.

Despite the denial from Russia and previous U.S. intelligence assessments, the latest revelations suggest a deeper involvement of foreign entities in the mysterious health ailments plaguing American diplomats around the world.
