According to the Russian military, there is “overwhelming” evidence that the United States is making bioweapons components in Ukraine. The commander of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Defense Forces told the State Duma on Tuesday that the U.S. is using Ukraine to make these weapons.
Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov says the Russian military found ample evidence of this taking place in Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kherson. “We have no doubt that the US, under the guise of ensuring global biosecurity, conducted dual-use research, including the creation of biological weapons components, in close proximity to Russian borders,” Kirillov told lawmakers, according to a report by RT.
Moscow raised concerns over a network of secretive U.S.-funded laboratories in Ukraine in the early weeks of the conflict and has frequently made public evidence about the program ever since. The U.0.S government confirmed the existence of the labs last March but insisted they were neither illegal nor intended for a military purpose, despite the fact that much of their funding went through the Pentagon. –RT
The investigation into the U.S.’s actions in Ukraine has identified specific individuals involved in the military bio-research in the territory of the U.S. and Ukraine. He also noted that the facts made public by the Russian Defense Ministry have not been disputed. “No one, including Western countries, has had any doubts about the authenticity of the published documents,” Kirillov said.
It is also important to note that Moscow took the biolabs issue to the United Nations last October, requesting an international probe into the situation. However, the motion was unsurprisingly blocked by the U.S., United Kingdom, and France in the Security Council.
The U.S. is blaming a “Russian disinformation” campaign for bringing this to the light of the public.
