Moscow believes that laboratories in Ukraine funded by the US military were making biological weapons components, but that local staff was being kept in the dark about their research, a senior Russian general said Thursday.
Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, who commands the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces of Russia, presented documents and imagery showing why the military has come to such a conclusion.
According to the disclosed documents, the US DoD’s Threat Reduction Administration picked several military labs to carry out studies of deadly pathogens and financed them under the guise of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health.
The labs experimented with bat-to-human disease transmission and isolated three bacterial pathogens – plague, brucellosis and leptospirosis – and six families of viruses, including coronaviruses.
