According to the Exposé News, "disgraced" Canadian Gen. Trevor Cadieu was recently captured by Russian forces in the besieged port city of Mariupol, which has essentially been reduced to nothing but rubble and bombed-out buildings thanks to relentless indiscriminate targeting by missiles and artillery.
"Russian sources often refer to Trevor Cadieu as Trevor Kadier or Trevor Cadier. At the beginning of this month, Russians said they captured Cadieu at the Azovstal iron and steel factory during the Siege of Mariupol. He is currently in Moscow awaiting trial," the report noted.
It added: "Cadieu was apparently not on a mission for his government but was in charge of a bio laboratory, Biolab No.1, with 18 staff working under his command. Biolab No.1 is reportedly managed by US company Metabiota. The company Hunter Biden, son of U.S. President Joe Biden, and Christopher Heinz, John Kerry’s son-in-law, had organized subcontracting arrangements for Ukrainian research laboratories through their firm Rosemont Capital, on behalf of the Pentagon's Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)."
Cadieu was a career Canadian army officer who attained the rank of lieutenant general. He retired only recently amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Shortly thereafter, he traveled to Ukraine to allegedly join in the fight after Russia invaded in late February.
He was released from the Canadian military on April 5 and intended to join other foreign fighters offering their services on behalf of Kyiv, several sources confirmed to Global News.
The Canadian Department of National Defense confirmed on April 21 that Cadieu had retired earlier in the month after serving for more than 30 years, even as military authorities continued to investigate the claims regarding his alleged conduct.
In a statement to CBC, Cadieu said: "I have opted to release [from the Canadian military] and am exploring other opportunities to contribute to the greater good."
In addition, the Exposé News reported that senior Canadian military leaders were briefed about their former colleague's decision to go to Ukraine.
Canadian defense spokesman Dan Le Bouthillier said the former lieutenant general's release from the military followed proper procedures, "as he is now a private citizen, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further on his personal plans."
"There has been no CAF [Canadian Armed Forces] support, material or otherwise, given to Cadieu since his departure as it pertains to his personal endeavors," Le Bouthillier added.
Meanwhile, Russian blogger Svetlana Nikolaevna noted (according to a translation) that "[Cadieu] was the head of 18 laboratories working on deadly viruses such as Ebola or Nipah. He was taken to Lefortovo (the investigative department of the FSB of the Russian Federation) in Moscow for trial by a military tribunal."
"The 'former' commander of the army, Lieutenant General Trevor Cadier, was in Ukraine, and he has been absent since February. He was surrounded in Mariupol at the Azovstal plant. It was behind Trevor Cadier that the Armed Forces of Ukraine sent four helicopters and two boats that destroyed the Russian Armed Forces," her report continued.
"It was for his sake that Ukrainian troops several times tried unsuccessfully to break through the front line and reach Mariupol. It was for his sake that Macron and Scholz tried to negotiate with Putin, but did not bargain anything. It is for the sake of a NATO general that Zelensky begs to organize a humanitarian Ukrainian corridor in Mariupol.
"Trevor Cadier did not have the will and courage to sit in the cellars of the Azovstal plant. While trying to escape from the Azovstal plant, he was arrested and taken to Lefortovo (Investigative Committee of the FSB of the Russian Federation), Moscow."
It's obvious the West and NATO were hiding several banned programs in Ukraine.
