By Vadim V. Baranov, Tatyana A. Baranova (ne'e Spryskova), Sergei V. Baranov.

In the end of the 1970s, as we became the objects of close attention of the KGB/MVD, we suspected that we were subjected to application of substances impairing our health. The clinical picture coincided with that of chemical weapons applied in non lethal doses. This our assumption could be regarded as an extremely wild if it had not been confirmed by unofficial information received from the Ivanovo KGB and MVD officers: lieutenant-colonel Melnik Vadim Nikolaevich and junior lieutenant of the interior service Kolbashova (Kolchugina) Natalya Nikolaevna and others in the end of 1970-s and beginning of 1980-s regarding the use of chemical weapons against individuals.
This information served as a stimulus for a prolonged professional medical monitoring. The picture of this monitoring for the period of 1981-1996 showed that the scale in which special services apply substances that impair human health surpassed the worst expectations. It correlates with a demographic situation of Russian Federation (Genocide of Russian Population).
The results of these prolonged observations gave us possibility to conduct analysis and make some generalizations.
The material represented in this article is based, first of all, on our personal experience as persecuted victims, on our observations and also on information from open sources.
As to special services, their own destructive activity is regarded by themselves as top-secret.

In a democratic society, or a society that has a democratic appearance, the spectrum of traditional methods of pressure on the members of the society is inevitably narrowed, giving way to clandestine means of individual terror known as (Rus: "sistema vnesudebnogo presledovaniya") "the system of outlawed persecution".

As it follows from the open publications, the most powerful weapons of this system, so called "special means", were and continue to be the weapons developed since the time of Vladimir Lenin in the notorious "Special Office" (Rus: "Spetsialny Kabinet"), which later transformed into top secret toxicological "Laboratory X" of professor Mairanovsky, bacteriological laboratory of academician Muromtsev and so on... Subsequently the weapons were elevated by the modern followers to the qualitatively new level opening a possibility to organize an individual terror on a massive scale.

The methods elaborated by special services for the limited purposes of "special operations" are on massive scale transferred to peaceful population in order to create artificial unhealthiness with the aim of:
  • behavior modification;
  • reduction of social and political activity of competitors and opponents;
  • suppression of any non sanctioned initiative in any sphere of life beginning from a domestic one;
  • and more often merely against unwanted persons.
The "artificial unhealthiness" of targeted victims is achieved by clandestine application of the widest spectrum of chemical or biological substances - "special means" which cause deterioration of mental or physical health (or both) of various degree and duration. It should be emphasized that such sort of actions in any case cause artificial decline of life quality, accelerate biological aging, artificially shorten life expectancy. The same practice extended to it's lethal extreme makes it possible to carry out mass purges camouflaging them under social and economic difficulties.

In order to create "artificial mental unhealthiness" special services covertly use a wide spectrum of narcotics, CNS (central nervous system) stimulants, psychomimetics, hallucinogens, etc. This range of substances makes it possible to change behavior of a victim in a wide range: from deepest depression leading to a suicide (masked murder) [Bib. 147] to heavy psychomotor excitement causing complications and death due to acute cardiovascular collapse (shock), arrhythmia, fibrillation, or cardiac arrest ("seemingly natural death"); from psychomotor stupor and catatonia to extreme rage and aggression. The latter enables to match with ease the behavior of an individual to criminal one and then treat him as a criminal (criminalization of victim).

In any case, the use of the mentioned above "special means" causes an abnormal and embarrassing behavior of a victim enabling special services to isolate the "object" from the rest of the society by creating around him social vacuum.

In order to discredit an unwanted rival, witness, opponent, etc., the "ordinary" narcotics are covertly used as well. This enables special services in collaboration with the medicine to officially register the presence of narcotic substances in the blood and urine on an unaware victim. Besides that, technique of artificial addicting to drugs is also in the arsenal of special services. The same methods are used for dehumanization of a victim in the eyes of the society which acts as a precursor to further physical liquidation.

In order to create "artificial physical unhealthiness" various means are used, beginning from those that came from the depth of history and ending with modern achievements of genetic engineering. The spectrum is practically unlimited as all substances if applied in overdoses are toxic for humans. However, according to our observations and information from open sources, the most widely used "special means" include military poisoning substances (Rus: tabel'nye otravlyayushchie veshchestva) in various dilutions and products of special laboratories and institutes of special services.
Here are only several examples of such agents:
  • organophosphates;
  • arsenic compounds;
  • cyanides;
  • Poisoning substances - derivatives of VITAMIN "K": cause intravascular coagulation and as a result thrombosis of blood vessels of vital organs: liver, kidneys, brain, heart as well as the lung vessels (acute pulmonary embolism, usually ending in a quick death if an urgent qualified medical aid is not provided), mesenteric vessels - with the development of necrosis of the corresponding parts of the intestine, vessels of the limbs, etc. For this reason derivatives of VITAMIN "K" constitute an ideal means to disguise a murder as a "natural death";
  • derivatives of decumarine (cause internal bleeding);
  • wide range of incapacitants (cause sharp deterioration of physical and mental activity);
  • various poisons and toxins (for example: ricin, mycotoxin, myelin toxin);
  • binary poisoning substances;
  • radioactive substances (for instance, Polonium-210 destroys biochemical systems of the body on the molecular level and causes clinical picture similar to immune deficiency disorders; radioactive Iodine-131 causes thyroid disorders including thyroid cancer);
  • various mixtures - multicomponent toxic mixtures (the brand handwriting of Russian special services is the use of poisons, specially created for à certain victim - taking into account the state of its health and physical parameters);
  • poisoning by narcotic substances are disguised as epilepsy, stroke, etc., poisonings by metal compounds – as gastroenteritis, peritonitis, etc.
During the recent years the use of genetically modified human saprophytes, such as "Escherichia coli" has been noticed. When in human body they are able to become deadly toxic at any moment having been activated with chemical substances applied on skin, or by any other methods.

The new achievements in biochemistry (for example in the field of bioregulators and pheromones) make it possible to induce a wide range of effects from non motivated rage to uncontrolled sexual attraction. This makes a victim an easy target for blackmailing or discrediting. Biological agents causing sharp unpleasant smell from a human body are also used in order to dehumanize and isolate the victim. Furthermore, the developments in the field of bioregulators (regulatory peptides) make it possible to use substances produced naturally by human body. Those toxins cause dramatic emotional and psychological changes, heart attacks, strokes, heart palpitation, arrhythmia, disruption of transmission of nerve impulses and so on. This opens an unprecedented possibility to use toxic substances that could not be traced in human body. In each case a clandestine application of such substances can lead to death - "killing without trace".

During the later Soviet period the special services, first of all the KGB, used the data of medical checkups and physical examinations for active revealing of latent, chronic diseases of a victim with the purpose of their amplification by special means in order to gradually finish off a victim labeling it as death from the natural causes. More often - from the pathology of the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary systems as the most vulnerable to poisons and weaponized microorganisms and bacteria.

It is necessary to mention here biological substances used by special services that cause skeletal diseases depriving a victim of ability to move. As a result, the respiratory function of a human body and then the heart vessel function are damaged. An accidental or deliberately arranged contact with a respiratory infection (flu, pneumonia) kills the victim without a trace of violence.

"Novichok" [Bib. 46, 47] ("newcomer") belongs to a range of substances that cause dramatic artificial biological aging of a human body and a catastrophic shortening of life expectancy.

2,4-Pyrolo - a substance, that causes total loss of memory - amnesia.

Alcohol even in insignificant amounts could be deadly when organophosphates (such as sarin) are applied by special services.

The application of biological agents and other "special means" is usually coducted under the disguise of natural factors, for example: endemic diseases, climatic or seasonal conditions, technical miscalculations and mistakes (Sverdlovsk accident) and so on. "Weak places" are specially searched for and used for camouflage.

The following typical scheme is often used to disguise the application of special means:
  • The first level of concealment - put the blame on the victim for example by tossing drugs or imitating an alcohol poisoning. If the first primitive stage fails, the second one is set off:
  • The second level of concealment - the killer is a loner, the toxic substance - a household chemical. In most cases it does not get any further than this stage. The case is quickly wound up, further investigation and expert confirmation are not allowed to conceal what represents the:
  • The genuine level, actual state of affairs - a collective perpetrator acting via special services with the use of special means.
An example of use of this scheme is described here.

As it proved to be, the most common methods of delivery of "special means" to a body of an unaware victim are the following:
  • spraying on skin;
  • spraying as an aerosol cloud for inhaling;
  • adding to food;
  • smearing the surfaces in a residence, clothes, linen, underwear, shoes, etc.
Spray containers of various shapes and sizes from ordinary ones to micro capsules and "applicators" camouflaged under everyday objects such as umbrellas, pens, keys, cigarette lighters, screwdrivers, even built into mobile phones, fingernail sized inhaler type plastic dosers unnoticeably caught between the fingers, allow to apply poisons, toxins, biological weapons in various concentrations on skin or for inhaling. Microcapsules colored like human skin and entirely unnoticeable in hand, or scattered on the floor release toxin, poison or narcotic on crashing.

The rapid development of nanotechnologies unlimitedly expands the opportunities of covert introduction of any substance to an organism. Micro and nanocapsules represent the ideal means of delivery of chemical and biological agents to a human body. Due to their small sizes they may be able to enter the body undetected by its immune system, and then become activated by the cells’ own mechanisms or an external remotely controlled trigger (such as ultrasound, electromagnetic radiation) to produce a toxin. A highly porous silicon-based nanomaterial product on entering the body (swallowed tiny capsules or tiny invisible needles applicated to skin) can release a toxin slowly over a period of time. A new concept has emerged, that of nanoweapons.

As the highly toxic substances are used in insignificant amounts, a victim, even knowing of being attacked, is generally unable to detect the moment of the attack. This is even more difficult as there may be no physical contact between an attacker and a victim. As a rule, these substances are applied in crowded areas: streets, shops, public transport, but it can also be a lonely passer-by walking towards you or approaching from behind.

Intrusions into dwelling in the absence of the residents practiced by special services, give enormous possibility for unprecedented pressure on a victim by not letting it escape to a safe place. During these intrusions "special means" are applied to surfaces in the dwelling - soft furniture, carpets as well as to clothes, linen, underwear, shoes in order to harm the health of the resisting victim. Dishes, utensils are covered with heavy metals - lead, mercury, or with thinnest synthetic polymer films exuding a toxin. Prolonged application of these substances achieved by the above mentioned techniques causes chronic poisoning with irreversible consequences.

If there is no possibility to intrude into the dwelling, poisoning substances are usually delivered as vapor or aerosol via the ventilation system of the building, or by a special drill that can run through a residence ceiling or a wall, or by other methods. The dwelling thus turns into a "gas chamber".

Combinations of poisonous substances (Rus: "preparats") used against a victim produce a variegated continuously changing clinical picture with a myriad of symptoms that do not fit into any known diagnosis, confusing doctors and making them send the patient to various specialists ("Syndrome of Unclear Origin"). In the beginning the deviations of health condition caused by applied substances are not irreversible, in this case a victim receives a false, non-existent diagnosis "Vegeto-Vascular Dystonia" (Rus: "vegeto-sosudistaya distoniya"), and in the case of a sudden death - the "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome". In other cases (the most desirable for special services) the victim falls into the hands of psychiatrists, and from that moment on, a tandem of special services and psychiatry [Bib. 129] (which itself was a part of the internal service of the KGB) is put into action. Subsequently, such person is treated as a lunatic (mentally ill) with all consequences following from it (neutralization of a dangerous witness etc., etc.).

If application of toxic substances causes irreversible changes in a human body, (cancer, myocardial infarction, asthma, stroke, etc.) physical elimination of the victim takes place - seemingly natural death. In other cases, under other circumstances, prolonged persecution leads to destruction of personality and as a result to the loss of a social and professional activity. It could be used for dehumanization of a victim in the eyes of society followed by further physical liquidation.
Finally, one beloved by the special services method should be mentioned here - liquidation on the move - that is during vacations, business trips, visits, as well as during weekends (Fridays, Saturdays) and holidays.

The described here barbarous system is aimed to solve quite certain tasks, which according to our observations are the following:
  • To ruin the will, to destroy the morale of the victim, etc; to make a victim guided, that is to force a person to do those things which in the normal circumstances it would have never done (recruiting - Rus: "verbovka").
  • To intimidate a victim, to force it to refuse the certain personal, social or political plans.
  • To make impossible the realization of plans deliberately inducing poor health (artificial disability).
  • To destroy the family of a victim as a main support of resistance to violence.
  • To reduce occupational, educational or personal activities, masking application of "special means" under "Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome", "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", etc.
  • As a revenge, causing more or less harm to health when intimidation, recruiting or luring failed.
  • To discredit and arrange conditions for prosecution, or attach a false psychiatric diagnosis and then treat the victim as a lunatic. (As a result, to remove a dangerous witness, etc.)
  • As tortures (deprivation of sleep, muscular-skeletal pains, the hardest headaches, toothaches, etc.) and getting satisfaction from suffering caused to the victim (sadism).
  • For expulsion (from a residence, territory, motherland, etc.)
  • To dehumanize before liquidation.
  • And the last - to eliminate, to kill, to "overtreat" with special means (Rus: "urabotat' ") . That means that the aim to kill is put from the beginning arranging seemingly natural death.
The range of it is enormously wide.

The list of methods of individual terror described here is far from complete. We do not mention the latest military achievements, immune or ethnic weapons (it is known that different ethnic groups have different levels of certain metabolic enzymes, or differences in genetic code), etc.

It is also important to mention here that because of the diffusion of special services and criminal organizations, some of the described here methods are as well used by criminals.

Our first attempts to make this information public in the former USSR are dated back to 1980. Despite our efforts these attempts were absolutely unsuccessful and turned out to be deadly dangerous. During the period of so called "Perestroika" very fragmented information of unofficial and semi-official character started to appear, but still it was and continues to be a "taboo", people who know about these type of things are paralyzed by fear, nobody ever spoke about it openly.

Finding ourselves in the West, we encountered the same. Nobody in Europe wants to discuss this problem, furthermore we are being persecuted for open discussion of it.
The Western legal system, however, made it possible for the first time in history to have these issues discussed in Court. A legal trial which started in San Francisco, California, in 1996 successfully ended on January 3, 2000. In 1998 we initiated a new unprecedented process on this problem in the European Court of Human Rights.
The problem raised here represents the first attempt to break through the conspiracy of silence. For the first time in history this problem is brought to the international legal level.
We believe that from a medical as well as legal perspective any attempt of application of any substance to a person without his/her agreement is an attempt on human life and is against the basic human right - the Right to Live.

Wide publicity of conducted lawlessness, removing "taboo" from discussion of these problems is of the first priority in fighting this evil, that is why it is necessary to draw a more complete picture of it.
As we have never collaborated with any special services, never been members of any secret societies, all our information is based on our personal observations and taken from open sources of information.
In order to make a more complete picture of this problem we would like to receive any information on the following subjects:
  • On the base of what orders, commands or any other documents contradicting to the Constitution and the Law the war against people is conducted?
  • What is known about such programs as "Flute" (Rus: "Fleyta"), "Bonfire" (Rus: "Koster") or other blood-curdling soviet-like eugenics?
  • Colleagues-doctors, what do you know about it?
  • Anyone who knows anything, or have learned from friends or acquaintance, or became a victim, any of your knowledge will be helpful!
We shall accept your information with gratitude and will answer any known to us questions, give recommendations.

The cause of the sudden acute sickness of the Ukraine presidential candidate in the forthcoming election, Mr. Yushchenko, was activation of a latent herpetic-viral infection, according to the results of the investigation of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
Comments of With the emergence of genetic engineering the early experiments were performed on Escherichia coli (e-coli). They made it possible, through the modification of the genetic apparatus of the bacteria, to program it in such a way that it could carry out two functions: in dormant mode the genetically modified Escherichia coli functions as a saprophyte, same as the regular bacteria. The other function of the bacteria can be turned on by applying a “trigger”, which could be of chemical or other nature. The genetically modified Escherichia coli then starts to produce a certain pre-programmed toxin poisoning the host organism. It seems likely that the above mentioned herpetic virus was used in a similar manner.

"The Guardian",15569,1372534,00.html A senior source in the Yushchenko campaign told the Guardian the poisoning was "clearly planned by professionals", who may have been former employees of the KGB. The source said the poison was called T-2, or "yellow rain" and that the CIA had been consulted in trying to identify it. Yellow rain, a "mycotoxin" related to the dioxins found in Mr Yushchenko's blood * , is a biological agent developed by the Soviets, and is known as their answer to Agent Orange. Michael Zimpfer, president of the Rudolfinerhaus clinic in Vienna ... added that, despite repeated analysis, "we may never be able to exclude that other chemicals were involved. We found the dioxin because it stays in the body for a long time. A short acting substance could also have been there."
* Comments of It is rather curious, however, why the "yellow rain" toxin is attributed to the principally different group of dioxines.

Litvinenko, who served in the K.G.B. and its Russian successor, the Federal Security Service, from 1988 to 1999 and now lives in London.
There have been similar cases around the world in the past few decades. The South African authorities were accused of using clothing impregnated with organophosphates to try to poison antiapartheid activists. In 1997, Israeli agents in Jordan injected a poison into a Hamas leader, Khaled Meshal, later delivering an antidote under international pressure to save his life.

"Acute poisonings of chemical etiology… have at present moved up to the second place in the structure of death causes of the Russian population after cardiovascular diseases and constitute the principal cause of death of the working age population... The absolute prevalence of domestic/household poisonings (98%) as a result of the widespread criminal activity should be noted... At present, according to the data of the Russian medical toxicological centers... poisonings by alcohol and its substitutes account to 5-10%."
Comments of In our previous reports we were drawing attention to the alarming statistics of the death rate increase of the Russian population from poisonings (see ref. [42], [93]). As it follows from the mentioned article [109], this tendency has resulted in "acute poisonings of chemical etiology" becoming the leading cause of death of the working part of the Russian population. This phenomenon has no historical or geographical analogies. As for the whole population of Russia, this cause of death is second only to the cardiovascular disorders [109], the large part of which constitutes the "acute cardiovascular collapse", which, as we have shown, camouflages deliberate chronic or acute poisoning or infecting.

5.1 Possibility of application of psychotropic substances as components of psychophysical weapons.
5.1.4 Damaging factors of psychotropic weapons.
... Covert form of application
Psychotropic substances alter mental state of a human. Alteration of the mental state does not cause physical suffering to a human. A human with altered mental state in the majority of cases maintains his capacity for work, continues to make decisions. …psychotropic substances are applied to a human being without him knowing it, he continues to make decisions despite the fact that they are no longer adequate to the reality. Those surrounding the person affected by psychotropic substances are equally unaware that his actions and decisions are no longer adequate to the situation. If the affected individual occupies a commanding or a managing position, his decisions continue to be mandatory for execution by his subordinates. The wrongfulness of those decisions is realized by the majority either too late, or not realized at all. In the later case, the managed personal does not associate their failures and defeats with the wrongful decision making and attributes failures to some other reasons.
Selectivity of application
Psychotropic substances can be applied both against a single individual and large masses of people. In case of application against a single individual, his character and social standing should be taken into account. In case of application of psychotropic weapons, the induced changes in mental state case anticipated changes in behavior and actions of groups of people and large social groups.
Human and ecological factors
... Modification of mental state stops either automatically after weeks or months or by applying directed psycho-therapeutic actions.” (i.e. antidote*). “Application of psychotropic substances does not affect the environment. ...
Economic feasibility and profitability Application of psychotropic substances allows all the property on the enemy’s territory to remain unharmed. Production costs of psychotropic substances are equal to those of other medications and are significantly less than production costs of any other weapons. As a drawback of psychotropic weapons it is mentioned the requirement of close contact application of the pharmaceutical means” (i.e. special means *) “ to the target. However the currently developed methods of remote transfer of properties of one substance to the other could potentially resolve even this problem."

State terrorism
State terrorism is defined by some as violence upon a population committed by national governments or their proxies when not in a state of armed conflict with that population. State terrorism can be effected directly, at the hands of national military or security forces, or indirectly, through state sponsored terrorist organizations. States can terrorize their own populations, to secure rule...
Methods of state terror
Although state terrorism is an almost universal social phenomenon, instances of state terror usually fall into certain categories. Unfair trials, torture, and extrajudicial execution are said to be common practices of state terror, often used to terrorize domestic populations by sovereign or proxy regimes.
Repressive terrorism
Repressive terrorism is the use of systematic, centralized violence to suppress, put down, and restrain certain groups, such as dissidents, or even an entire population. It is considered always unpredictable and arbitrary. Secret police, state agents, and informers support the tyrannical rule, whose harsh methods, such as the use of torture, liquidation, and purges, strikes fear into a population.

There were no reports of government action against officials who violated these safeguards."

From the early years of existence of the Soviet regime in the USSR it engaged in development of psychotronic weapons. Actually it began with the invention in 1923 of “Cerebral radio” by B. B. Kazhinsky. All efforts, however, were made to regard any discussion of this subject a mental disorder. For this purpose a “Joint order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR and the Ministry of Public Health of the USSR” was issued: "...individuals speaking about cerebral psychotronic weapons are subject to isolation in special facilities with subsequent forced medical treatment."

The laboratory received a code name PION (Rus: Psikhiatricheskie Issledovaniya Osobogo Naznacheniya) Special Purpose Psychiatric Research. The lab team divided into two groups: the PIONISTS and the PIONEERS.
The PIONISTS proposed a compact but extremely powerful low frequency transmitter. The signals transmitted by the “Hell machine” were beyond the threshold of human recognition and affected the human psyche in a broad range from deep sleep to incurable mental illness.

(In Russia and in the countries of Eastern Europe from the end 1980s - the beginning of the 1990s started a sharp landslide increase in the mortality of population especially of the male working age population. In Russia the losses of life are 2 mln per year, predominantly of Russian population [133, pp. 34-35], since not one national formation, entering its [Russia] composition has the natural loss of population. Those losses are comparable with the times of full-scale war. The permanent, high and continuously lasting increase in the surplus mortality of men cannot be explained by known factors (social and economic conditions and others) [132, pp. 26-27]. In the structure of the reasons of the male mortality based on the example of the city of Smolensk region as one of those suffered most in demographic sense, the first places belong to ñàrdiovascular diseases, to accidents and poisonings [132, p. 50], and to tumors. The authors eventually consider that the risk factor for many illnesses, first of all cardiovascular ones, is the factor of poisoning, including the one of endogenous nature (endogenous toxins by the name of bioregulators can be used as toxic substances: see bioregulators in Main)*. In the excess mortality of men of the East European countries as a whole [132, p. 66] everywhere predominate the exogenous, controlled causes of death, especially, the class of accidents, poisonings and injuries.

"On the grounds of the presented facts it can be assumed that going around the Constitution, domestic special services, or more likely affiliated with them “funds”, are given special authority. Through their illegal and semi-legal subdivisions they became one of the major control mechanisms of the country. The power they gained, constitutes a threat to both society as a whole and to each citizen of the country individually."

In the structure of causes why medical doctors stop their professional activity disability and mortality exceeds 50%, which is higher than other occupations. About one-third (33.3%) of female doctors, and half (50%) of male doctors lose their working ability before the retirement age. (The retirement age in the Russian Federation is 60 years old for men, and 55 years old for women).

Major-Genenral Yuri Drozdov: "...I remember when, in the 1990s, Mitrokhin, a retired foreign intelligence service KGB archivist defected, he gave Americans copies of documents he brought from Russia. Interestingly enough, the Americans sent those material to me - I was already retired then: "Have a look please at the Mitrokhin materials. Could you separate truth from fiction ...".

Aleksandr Sakharovsky, while being the head of the First Chief Directorate of the KGB of the USSR, personally gave orders to apply to Sean Bourke a poisoning substance, which gradually destroys health, primarily the cerebral activity. This happened shortly before Bourke’s departure from Moscow. Sakharovskiy feared that Bourke - a participant of the operation to arrange the escape of the KGB agent George Blake from prison would, after returning to the West, tell the details of Blake’s life in the Soviet Union. Bourke died in Ireland at the age of 47... (Emphasis ours*).

"...Compared with its predecessors, it is indeed a "new society". Traditional trouble spots are being cleaned out or isolated, disrupting elements taken in hand." "...the gradual reduction of direct political controls testifies to increasing reliance on the effectiveness of technological controls as instruments of domination."

Our comments: what Markuse is talking about is a change in methods of ideology enforcement from the methods of direct political control to the methods of the so called 'technological control'. One of the essential instruments of this control not mentioned by the author was developed by a Russian physiologist, creator of the theory of the higher nervous activity, Nobel prize winner in medicine and physiology of 1904 academician I. P. Pavlov on his 'dogs'. The 'technological control' over men does not leave space for individual initiative outside the narrow field of professional competence, and requires penalizing for any such initiatives, unless they are sanctioned explicitly (as orders, recommendations, advises, hits) or implicitly (as stereotypes of thought and behavior that match rulling ideology and policies). The fulfillment of the control is entrusted to the special services: stimulate and uphold the loyal, incapacitate and undermine the independent. The result of the application of these 'technologies', is, among other things, millions of chronically ill on both sides of the Atlantic with dubious diagnoses - syndromes like chronic fatigue, tinnitus, pathological obesity, vegitovascular dystonia, increase in cardiovascular diseases or worse, and as the result - increasing mortality rate primarily among the males, and so forth.

According to the investigation of internet media company "BuzzFeed News", a former senior Scotland Yard counter-terror officer who spoke to BuzzFeed News said "the state can mess up minds, it can do all sorts of things. It has research laboratories, it has science facilities", he said. "There are all sorts of drugs that can be given to people to create depression" (Emphasis ours*). This statement was made during the discussion of the causes of death of Matthew Puncher, a British expert in the field of radiation, who discovered in 2006 the amount of polonium inside Litvinenko. In May 2016 Puncher was found dead in his home after a supposedly suddenly developed state of depression concerning his conclusion.
