China demands full information about US biolabs in Ukraine
A Pentagon factsheet released on June 9 read that US authorities sponsored civilian laboratories and health care institutes in Ukraine as part of a peaceful campaign.
While commenting on the Pentagon's factsheet concerning support for Ukrainian biological facilities, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said that the Chinese government demands that the US disclose full and detailed information about the activity of US military laboratories in Ukraine.
"Once again we call on the United States to explain fully and in detail the activities that it had carried out in Ukraine, and not the activity that was carried out by the Ukrainian side," he said. "Also, we urge the United States once more to drop objections to creating a verification protocol."
According to a factsheet provided by the Pentagon on Thursday, US authorities have funded 46 civilian laboratories and health care institutes in Ukraine as part of peaceful activities during the past 20 years.

Moreover, Moscow's claim that the US President's son, Hunter Biden, helped finance military research into dangerous pathogens at Biolabs in Ukraine, seems to be true according to new emails from Hunter's infamous laptop.
The commander of the Russian Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Protection Forces has lately stated that there was a “scheme of interaction between US government agencies and Ukrainian biological objects”, stressing the “financing part of such activities by structures close to the current US leadership, in particular, the investment fund Rosemont Seneca, which is headed by Hunter Biden.”
Previously, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov stated that during the special military operation in Ukraine, Russian forces discovered evidence pointing to an emergency cleanup by the Kiev regime of traces of a military biological program conducted in Ukraine and financed by the US Defense Department.
On February 24, workers from these Pentagon-run Ukrainian labs reported the emergency disposal of particularly harmful germs, including the plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera, and other fatal diseases, according to Konashenkov.
At a hearing before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Senate on March 9, US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland indicated that there were biological research facilities in Ukraine, and that Washington was working to keep them from falling under Russian control.
