During the NATO summit held in Vilnius last July, a high-ranking official of the US Department of Defense was attacked with a weapon causing the “Havana syndrome”.

This is according to a joint investigation by The Insider, Der Spiegel and CBS’ 60 Minutes on Monday.

The “Havana syndrome” was first reported in 2016, when US diplomats in the Cuban capital began complaining that they experienced symptoms such as nausea after hearing ear-piercing noises at night. All this has led to speculation about a possible attack by a foreign state using an unnamed sonic weapon.

A year-long investigation “has uncovered evidence suggesting that the origin of the unexplained anomalous health conditions may be linked to the ‘directed energy weapons’ used by members of Russia’s military intelligence unit 29155.”

This Russian military intelligence unit is responsible for operations abroad and has been blamed for several incidents abroad, including the attempted poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom in 2018.

On Monday, Moscow dismissed the allegations as baseless.

US intelligence said in 2022 that intense directed energy from an external source may have caused some cases of “Havana Syndrome”, officially known as Anomalous Health Disorders (AHI). However, in March 2023, intelligence agencies concluded that “there is no credible evidence that any foreign adversary has a weapon or collection device that triggers AHI.”
