In the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders, the United States is working on the development of biological weapons. This statement was made by Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Ryabkov.
“The Americans have something to hide in their military biological activities in Ukraine. The goal is clear – to prevent any possibility of revealing the true nature and tasks facing the US military biological programs, ”Lenta.ru quotes the Russian diplomat as saying.
Ryabkov noted that these studies in Ukraine are funded by the military departments of third countries, and foreign experts are also involved in them. According to him, Moscow intends to continue to fight against the military-biological activities of Washington.
As Izvestia wrote, earlier Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow at the summit of the G20 leaders raised the issue of biological security with an emphasis on Pentagon programs in regions around the perimeter of Russia and China.
Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, head of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Forces of the Russian Armed Forces (AF), as RT reported, said that the United States and Ukraine in Geneva did not answer the question about the reasons for the emergency destruction of documents on military biological activities in Ukraine.
