Damage caused by Covid-19 to countries globally should be covered by Washington if the US bioresearch origin claim is confirmed, the Duma speaker says.

The US may owe the world huge compensation for the damage caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the Russian State Duma, said on Wednesday. He cited remarks made by the chair of The Lancet Commission on the disease, who proposed the SARS-CoV-2 virus to have originated from an American research program.

Speaking in Madrid last month, economist Jeffrey Sachs called the current situation ‘a mess’ and blamed diminishing American leadership for it, identifying the pandemic as one of the US failures. He said he was convinced that the virus came out of US lab biotechnology’ as opposed to evolving naturally, citing his experience with the authoritative British medical magazine.

Volodin asserted that the US government refused to comment on Sachs’ remarks because President Joe Biden is ‘afraid that the world will know the truth about the true culprit of the pandemic.’

He added that the suffering of millions of people who contracted the virus, including the many who passed away, and the economic crisis caused by the pandemic was the US’ responsibility. ‘The US must compensate the damage to all nations affected,’ he demanded.

The Russian official added that the US should stop and declassify its military bioweapons research, referring to the chain of Biolabs scattered across the world that receives funding from the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency. The US says they are used to detect emerging pathogens, but some countries, including Russia and China, believe they may be used for clandestine military research.

Sachs himself called his remark provocative’ and lamented that the theory is not being investigated, not in the United States, not anywhere, despite evidence that warrants such a probe. ‘They don’t want to look underneath the rug too much,’ he said.

The theory that Covid-19 started as a leak from a Chinese lab in Wuhan was popularized by the US government under President Donald Trump, who stated that Beijing should pay compensation for its supposed guilt. The Chinese government and Trump’s political opponents at home angrily rejected the idea. Major US tech companies even suppressed the lab leak theory as ’disinformation’ on their online platforms.


The censorship of the origins of COVID-19 was reversed under President Joe Biden’s administration, which accused Beijing of failing to subject its microbiology research to international scrutiny. The outbreak was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which hosts a top biosecurity lab that has extensive records of doing research funded by American grants.
