The Russian Foreign Ministry said there are hundreds of U.S. biological laboratories scattered around the world. Russia plans to present new data about the U.S. bio-laboratories in the near future, said Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov. This was reported by TASS.
According to the Deputy Foreign Minister, what has been revealed in Ukraine is a small fraction of the total number of such laboratories. In total, the U.S. has more than three hundred of them in the world, according to Ryabkov. “The documents are there. We will submit new ones,” he added.
Earlier, U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland confirmed that there are biological research facilities in Ukraine. In addition, she added that the U.S. for its part is working to prevent their transfer to the control of Russian forces.
On March 6, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said that a special military operation in Ukraine had uncovered evidence of Kiev’s emergency sweep of the military-biological program. According to the Defense Ministry, the US Department of Defense was financing this program.
According to Igor Kirillov, head of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces of the Russian Defense Ministry, there were a total of 30 laboratories on the territory of Ukraine that fulfilled orders from the United States.
