The Russian federal television channel REN-TV conducted an
based on materials and documents recently declassified by the FSB on the development of bacteriological
weapons in Japan. The declassification of documents was timed to the anniversary of the famous Khabarovsk trial of war criminals in Japan, including
the leaders of the infamous Detachment 731.
For ATS members, I would like to present a retelling of this investigation.
The documents submitted by the FSB indicate that the Japanese program for the creation of bioweapons assumed the destruction of all mankind.
This program was launched in 1927, when the Japanese government turned to the American experience in creating weapons of mass destruction. Since the
early 1920s, the US Chemical Weapons Service (CWS) has been developing and manufacturing bacteriological and chemical weapons.
The Japanese decided to reproduce the analogue of this project at home. Moreover, until the end of 1939, the Japanese and American programs were
implemented in close cooperation, but in parallel. Almost all the leaders of the infamous Unit 731 were trained in the United States. Upon their
return to their homeland, Shiro Ishii, Masaji Kitano, Wakamatsu Yujiro, Ryoichi Naito headed the key directions of the Japanese bacteriological
Participants in the program have committed numerous war crimes. one of which was the preparation for the destruction of their teachers - the United
States. But despite this, after the end of World War II, the United States was not going to liquidate the Japanese bioweapons program.
It is necessary to remember what the situation with the development of biological weapons developed at that time in the world.
Before World War II, there were three giants of the pharmaceutical industry, which were simultaneously the leading manufacturers of chemicals,
explosives, and biological agents. These are British Imperial Chemical Industries, American DuPont and German IG Farben. There was competition between
them, which stopped only during the Second World War, when a cartel conspiracy arose.
In 1942, the United States and Great Britain entered into a partnership agreement to develop bioweapons. This agreement resulted in the post-war
merger of Imperial Chemical Industries with DuPont subsidiaries. On their basis, the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca plc was born.
After Germany's surrender in 1945, IG Farben was divided into 12 independent companies, which immediately took control of the United States and
appropriated all the patents of the German giant.
Thus, an opportunity arose for the creation of a transcontinental pharmacological empire, concentrating all the development of biological weapons in
its hands. To complete the formation of this empire, it remained to include only one link in it - the Japanese. Therefore, the United States took
under its wing the bacteriologists of the Yamato empire. They were not embarrassed that the activities of the Japanese were recognized as a crime
against humanity in the Tokyo and Khabarovsk international trials of 1946-1949.
