MOSCOW (AP) — The Interfax news agency quotes Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko as saying that 48 people have died of swine flu in the ex-Soviet nation. Ukraine closed schools and banned cinema showings and concerts Friday in a bid to stop the epidemic, which Yushchenko says sickened 150,000 people.

The outbreak began in the western Ternopol region, health officials said. Ukrainian media reported severe shortages of anti-flu medication and masks in pharmacies.

The World Health Organization said last week that about 5,000 people have been reported as having died from swine flu worldwide.

The figure is considered an underestimate, since most countries have stopped counting individual swine flu cases.

You have to give the president credit - at least he does not try to hide the grusome numbers due to this flu epidemy - unlike the Prime minister and her jolly crew who stick to the story that Ukraine has suffered its first death of swine flu.

Do not mislead your people Mrs Prime Minister, tell the truth, you will feel better yourself, and the people will automatically take actions and responsibility unlike you and your ministers.

I do think it is totally neglect of your responsibility as a Prime minister when your President has to speak of what happens and give reallity check for all.

This is your chance to truly show that you care for our people and take responsibility for their future.

So far, you have not led up to your promises - medical masks would be availble and medicine would be available at no extra cost than few weeks ago. You ensured all that this would be controlled - and punished those who used this situation to gain economically from it.

What happens, the total opposite - medicine gone - prices jacked up 4-5 times, people suffer and are scared. What do you intend to do apart from writing speeches and talk about it. WE DEMAND ACTION NOW.

President Yushchenko, forgive me, but I feel your nation should have been preparing solutions for this problem as soon as there was an outbreak in Crimea! Your sluggish government needs to get in gear, and stop the regional bickering! I have heard that in 2002 amendments were made to the Ukrainian constitution which in fact slow down the efficiency of your administration! Bravo for starting to clear up constitutional problems and the hotline to react to corruption for Ukrainian people! Keep moving forward Ukraine! There is always more opportunity, but for right now beet down this epidemic, and then get back up, with the help of Jesus, and whatever it takes! Amen! UN, get some vaccines and doctors to Ukraine, who speak Ukrainian quick! God bless you all, my brothers and sisters! We'll get through this, and the economic hiccups with it, thank God!

Some real facts about the H1N1 Vaccine

-long term effects of the chemicals-aluminum

-long term effects of mercury-brain damage

-long term effects of aborted fetus tissues-genetic manipulation

-long term effects of squaline adjuvants-the very real fear of the 1976 Paralysis-Guillian-Barre-Disease.

-for pregnant moms-this could mean damaged or deformed babies or death.

-for older people-destroys their immune system causing death.

-for younger people-diseases such as cancer, diabetes, damaged immunity or death.

MF -59 which is not approved for use in the USA by the FDA. This will put your immune system in hyper mode and force your body to get an auto-immune disease!

Squaline- is another hyper mode chemical which by passes your immune system! “

This is the UN's/WHO's AGENDA for THEIR International Eugenics Program: Micropaleontologist Dr. Viera Scheibner conducted research into the adverse effects of adjuvants in vaccines and wrote: Squalene "contributed to the cascade of reactions called "Gulf War syndrome. (GIs developed) arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Raynaud's phenomenon, Sjorgren's syndrome, chronic diarrhea, night sweats and low-grade fever." The immune system "see(s) and recognizes it as an oil molecule native to the body. Squalene is not just a molecule found in a knee or elbow - it is found throughout the nervous system and the brain." When injected in the body, the immune system attacks it as an enemy to be eliminated. Eating and digesting squalene isn't a problem. But injecting it "galvanize(s) the immune system into attacking it, which can produce self-destructive cross reactions against the same molecule in the places where it occurs naturally in the body - and where it is critical to the health of the nervous system."

Dr. Matsumoto says "Squalene is a kind of trigger for (a) real biological weapon," what Soviet researchers called "a biological time bomb!!" and Matsumoto says is "the immune system." When its "full repertoire of cells and antibodies (attack) tissues they are supposed to protect, the results can be catastrophic." He and Dr. Pam Asa conclude that "Oil adjuvants are the most insidious chemical weapon ever devised," including ones with squalene - something the Soviets knew could be used as a weapon in the 1980s.

Dr. Matsumoto says that "the real problem with using squalene (isn't) that it mimics a molecule found in the body; it is the same molecule. So what American scientists conceived as a vaccine booster (or what's now being developed in labs) was another 'nano-bomb,' instigating chronic, unpredictable and debilitating disease. When the NIH....argued that squalene would be safe because it is native to the body, just the opposite was true," and, of course, still is. "Squalene's natural presence in the body made it one of the most dangerous molecules ever injected into man" and using it in vaccines is outlandish and criminal.

WAKE UP UKRAINE: Another problem is that "Autoimmunity (takes) years to diagnose" because early symptoms (headaches, joint pain, etc.) are so vague they can easily be from other causes.

From inception, vaccines have always been dangerous enough for some experts to call them biological weapons undermining health, manipulating and crippling the immune system, and creating the possibility of future debilitating diseases. So Big Pharma's solution is new, more potent genetically engineered vaccines and drugs that may end up harming or killing many who take them, especially people with weakened immune systems. Dr. Matsumoto and others sounded the alarm to alert everyone to avoid these poisons masquerading as protective drugs. In fact, they benefit only the bottom lines of companies that manufacture them and scientists reaping generous royalties.
