This chapter discusses the start of the anthrax outbreak from the viewpoint of a military officer, first studying the huge reformations of the Yeltsin era and the equally large turnover in military personnel. From here the discussion turns to the meeting with General Yevstigneyev, where he related what he knew about the anthrax outbreak and suggested alternate scenarios for the outbreak. It considers the erosion of the military's science and technology and the vaccine research or production conducted in Compound 19 in 1979. The chapter also discusses the aerosol challenges, identifies the strain being used in Compound 19 at the time of the outbreak, and reviews the communications that led to the presidential decree for pensions to the victims' families.

Keywords:   reformations, Yeltsin era, military personnel, General Yevstigneyev, alternate scenarios, vaccine research, aerosol challenges, presidential decree, pensions
