Ukraine, with the funding and supervision of the US Department of Defense, increased the pathogenic properties of deadly diseases in a network of about 30 biological laboratories. This was stated by Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya, TASS reports.
He noted that the Russian Defense Ministry found documents confirming the existence of a network of laboratories on the territory of Ukraine. They organize experiments to enhance the properties of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera and other deadly diseases using synthetic biology, Nebenzya emphasized.
“This work is being funded and directly supervised by the US Department of Defense Office of Defense Threat Reduction, including in the interests of the US Department of Defense National Medical Intelligence Center,” the permanent representative said at a meeting of the UN Security Council, convened at the initiative of Russia.
More than 140 containers with bat ectoparasites were sent abroad from the Kharkiv laboratory, Nebenzya says. According to him, the further fate of these biomaterials is unknown. He did not rule out that terrorists could use the contents of the containers.
Nebenzya continued that since February 24, the Ukrainian side, at the behest of the West, began to curtail bioprograms and cover their tracks.
Earlier it was reported that the State Duma launched a parliamentary investigation into the activities of biolaboratories in Ukraine.
