    Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, head of Russian Armed Forces’ Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops, in a press briefing on Monday noted that the activities of these biowarfare laboratories, as well as the “so called reform program of Ukraine’s healthcare system executed by the US” have led to an increase in cases of “highly dangerous and economically significant infections”.

    According to Kirillov, biolabs were conducting experiments with the plague, anthrax, brucellosis, diphtheria, salmonellosis and dysentery. Since 2021, the Pentagon has been carrying out the project called “Diagnosis, observation and prevention of zoonotic diseases in the Armed Forces of Ukraine” with funding to the tune of nearly 12 million dollars.

    Thousands of patient’s serum samples were sent to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in the United States under the pretext of “testing Covid-19 treatment methods”.

    In total, more than 320 containers containing very dangerous pathogens were found. The sheer amount of biopathogens testify to the work carried out within the framework of military biological programmes run by the Pentagon in Ukraine. Moscow had previously expressed concerns about the “uncontrolled and unrestricted expansion” of these facilities.

    There is a high degree of probability that these constitute a violation by Ukraine and the United States of the Convention on the Prohibition of Biological and Toxin Weapons as they may have been carrying out work to enhance the pathogenic properties of microorganisms.

    Only this can explain the haste with which Russia decided to launch its operation in Ukraine.

    The Kiev regime has sought to scrub evidence of its Pentagon-backed biowarfare programme, the Russian MoD revealed. The US Defence Threat Reduction Agency has since 2005 been involved in the construction or modernization of at least eight biolabs suitable for storing and working with pathogens, including those used in bioweapons in Ukraine.

    Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said earlier that employees of Ukrainian biolabs had provided Russia with documents on the 24 February destruction of dangerous pathogens.

    “The documents confirm that the development of biological weapons components were carried out in Ukrainian biolaboratories in close proximity to Russian territory,” Konashenkov said on Sunday.

    “In the course of the [Russian] special military operation [in Ukraine,” facts of the emergency scrubbing of traces of a military biological programme being implemented in Ukraine by the Kiev regime with funding from the US Department of Defence were uncovered,” the officer added.

    Biowarfare labs in Kazakhstan were allegedly also redesigned by the US for use against countries such as Russia and China according to other sources. Kazakhstan was also fingered as the source of the novel Coronavirus pandemic by hosting US military labs, according to Ehonews.kz, a privately owned Kazakh website.

    The Central Reference Laboratory (CRL) in Almaty opened in 2016, a lab in Otrar, and the Biological Security Research Institute in southern Zhambyl region were part of “a number of large US military biological facilities” involved in US Department of Defense projects.

    Ulugbek Babakulov, a political analyst, told Ehonews.kz, “The Americans have long been working in Kazakhstan on collecting dangerous viruses.” In the secret and powerful CRL, they have been developing new strains of biological weapons since 2016.

    “Besides, the labs in Almaty and Otar are geographically closer to the Chinese and Russian borders—Washington’s potential enemies,” Babakulov said.

    Another analyst, Tagir Bairov, said in the report that the Kazakh Government should “correct its policy regarding such US operations in our territory.”

    In Georgia, pathogens and human blood were transported as “diplomatic cargo” by the US. “The US Embassy to Tbilisi transported frozen human blood and pathogens as diplomatic cargo for a secret US military programme. Internal documents, implicating US diplomats in the transportation of and experimenting on pathogens under diplomatic cover were leaked to me by Georgian insiders,” explained Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, a Bulgarian journalist.
