WorldRussiaRussia blames US for funding research into development of biological weapons in Ukraine

Russia has blamed the United States for funding research into the development of biological weapons in Ukraine on Thursday, as Moscow stepped up its campaign to gain control of key Ukrainian cities.

Russia defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that, “The purpose of this and other Pentagon-funded biological research in Ukraine was to establish a mechanism for the stealthy spread of deadly pathogens.

As per the claims of Konashenkov, “The ministry had obtained documents detailing US military-biological activities in Ukraine, including on the transfer of Ukrainians’ biomaterial abroad.

He said Washington planned to conduct research on the bird, & reptile pathogens,” and on African swine fever and anthrax. “Biolaboratories set up and funded in Ukraine have been experimenting with bat coronavirus samples,” Konashenkov said.

Both Washington and Kyiv have denied the existence of laboratories intended to produce a biological weapon in the nation, which has faced a Russian assault by tens of thousands of troops since February 24.

Russia in 2018 has accused the United States of secretly carrying out biological experiments in a lab in Georgia, another former Soviet republic, which like Ukraine, aims to join NATO and the European Union.
