Síndroma de Havana relacionado com unidade de espionagem russa

April 2, 2024 - A misteriosa doença designada por síndroma de Havana que afetou
diplomatas dos EUA em todo o mundo pode estar relcionada com uma
unidade de espionagem russa, concluiu uma investigação jornalística.

Personnel stationed around the globe with Havana syndrome have reported unexplained symptoms such as dizziness.

They may have been targeted by Russian sonic weaponry, according to a joint investigation by The Insider, Der Spiegel and CBS’s 60 Minutes.

Moscow has denied the accusations. U.S. officials previously said it was unlikely a foreign power was to blame.

The phenomenon gets its name from Cuba’s capital Havana – where the first case was detected in 2016 – though the new report suggests the first cases may have happened in Germany two years earlier.

Other cases have been reported around the world, from Washington to China, the BBC said.
