«Havana syndrome» detected in U.S. diplomats in Germany

Several U.S. officials stationed in Germany have been diagnosed with the so-called “Havana syndrome” — an unexplained deterioration in well-being accompanied by headaches and weakened concentration, the newspaper The Wall Street Journal, citing the U.S. Embassy in Berlin.

According to the embassy, nausea, headaches, insomnia, and lethargy combined have been reported in at least two U.S. officials in Germany, with similar symptoms reported elsewhere in Europe.

“There is no evidence of what happened to us, but it is striking that some of us were working on problems related to Russia,” one of the victims said on condition of anonymity.

It is specified that the victims mainly dealt with issues related to gas supplies from Russia, cybersecurity, and alleged Russian interference in EU politics.

Earlier, the “Havana syndrome” was detected in U.S. diplomats in Vienna.
