Russian special unit linked to Havana Syndrome that sickened US officials overseas: report

“Havana Syndrome” refers to mysterious health incidents first reported by U.S. and Canadian embassy staff in Havana, Cuba, starting in late 2016. Those affected reported a range of symptoms including nausea, severe headaches, fatigue, dizziness, sleep problems, and hearing loss. Some U.S. officials speculated these symptoms could have resulted from targeted attacks using advanced technology, though no solid evidence has been found.

Recently, a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report suggested a possible link between “Havana Syndrome” and Russia’s special forces unit. The report cited unnamed current and former officials saying that the intelligence community had found a potential link to Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU, specifically its elite unit 29155. Still, officials caution that evidence is not concrete, as it is largely circumstantial and does not prove Russian responsibility.

It’s important to note that the investigations into the Havana Syndrome are ongoing, and no official conclusion about the source has been confirmed by U.S. authorities. Therefore, information about this topic may continue to evolve.
