Russia earlier revealed evidence of multiple bio laboratories in Ukraine, which were purportedly working on pathogens that might be used in the manufacturing of illegal biological weapons. Moscow also discovered records proving that the United States, specifically the Pentagon, sponsored this research.
The Pentagon intends to relocate incomplete biological weapons development programs from Ukraine to other nations in the former Soviet bloc and Eastern Europe, according to Russia’s Defense Ministry during its regular press briefing.
The ministry stated that it has proof that tissue samples and harmful pathogens are being transferred from Ukraine to other countries, warning that the process endangers the health of those areas. The Defense Ministry also stated that it intends to show evidence that the US and Ukraine are breaching the international convention against the use of bioweapons in Geneva next week.
“Right now, we are seeing several publications in the foreign press with a nervous reaction from Washington to the release of extremely sensitive documents by the [Russian] Defense Ministry. Journalists note that the American intelligence services are taking unprecedented steps to prevent Russia from having access to potential witnesses close to the implementation of the classified military biological projects of the Pentagon in Ukraine,” the Defense Ministry said.
The Russian Defense Ministry highlighted out that instead of focusing on pathogens that cause measles, rubella, tuberculosis, or AIDS, the Pentagon invested in research on cholera, tularemia, plague, and hantaviruses. The Russian military believes the US was engaged in this study because these viruses are endemic to Russia and any outbreak triggered by the deployment of biological weapons might be mistaken for naturally occurring.
