Russia: More than 300 global bio labs funded by the US
The involvement of the US in biolabs for the manufacturing of chemical weapons in Ukraine is exposed day by day.
According to the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, there are more than 300 US-funded civilian and military biological laboratories in the world.
Popova stated that there are regions with high concentrations of American labs both military and civilian, and their numbers are increasing by the day.
The head of Rospotrebnadzor detailed that against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, some countries are choosing to build new facilities around the world and the number is increasing.
This comes after Moscow discovered new information proving the Pentagon's involvement in developing components for biological weapons in Ukraine, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Igor Konashenkov said Saturday.
According to Konashenkov, the MoD is still examining documents from employees in the Ukrainian biolabs, which link the United States to the biological military activity in Ukraine.
"Experts from the Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Troops discovered while examining the documents that there was new information proving the US Defense Department's direct involvement in developing components for biological weapons in Ukraine," the Russian Spokesperson added.
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland had said Ukraine had "biological research facilities," and the United States is concerned that they could come under the control of the Russian forces.
Data on biological laboratories found in Ukraine does not help the case of the US against claims regarding its compliance with the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC), Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova had said.
