CIA Director William Burns has reportedly warned Russian intelligence there will be a price if the agency finds proof they are behind the mysterious Havana syndrome. Burns has reportedly raised the issue during a trip to Moscow earlier in November. While he did not directly point the finger at Russia's FSB or the SVR, Mr Burns said that the attacks went far beyond the normal actions of a professional intelligence service. US President Joe Biden has already vowed to determine the origin of the attacks, which have been reported to have started in 2016 at the US embassy in Cuba. He has set up a task force to investigate several cases across the world. The State Department is investigating whether or not they are attributed to a foreign actor.

According to the book's description, the Havana syndrome is one of the most extraordinary cases in the history of science.
