  • A major medical study led by Dr. David Railman of Stanford University found evidence of injury to the auditory and vestibular system of the brain, suggesting directed pulsed radio frequency energy as the most plausible mechanism.
  • The case of FBI agent Carrie suggests Russian involvement. She was investigating Russian spy Vitali Kovalev, who was caught speeding in Florida in 2020.

  • The impact on American national security has been significant, with intelligence officers and diplomats being removed from their posts due to traumatic brain injuries.
  • Incidents have occurred in various locations, including Cuba, Germany, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and London, suggesting potential revenge attacks.

Russian Involvement

  • Investigative reporter Christo Grozev discovered the existence of a top-secret Russian intelligence unit, Unit 29155, which is trained in sabotage, counter-surveillance, and the use of poison and technology to inflict pain or damage.
