Afrasianet -  Ramah Ismail - The Pentagon is spending tens of millions of dollars to establish biological laboratories outside its territory. If these laboratories are funded by the military department, this confirms that their missions will be completely military.

The Russian military operation in Ukraine is not limited to the advance of Russian forces in order to protect the residents of Donetsk and Luhansk from the Kyiv government, or to prevent NATO from extending eastward through Ukraine, but also to ward off a threat that will not only affect Russia, but also European countries, which is the threat of biological weapons Which the United States is developing in secret laboratories on Ukrainian territory, according to Russian statements.

Moscow warned the world about the danger of these laboratories in the past years, and reiterated its warning during the military operation through the statements of its officials, the last of whom, perhaps, the Director of the Second Chamber of the CIS countries, Alexei Bolchuk, who said that "the biological laboratories deployed in Ukraine pose a danger, not Not only for Russia, but for the whole European continent as well.

In his speech, Bolshuk touched on one of the objectives of the Russian military operation, stressing that it aims, among other important things, to stop this threat. Biological Weapons Convention The Russian military operation in Ukraine sheds light on American behavior that threatens human safety, especially in Europe. Biological laboratories in Ukraine embrace murky activities under American supervision, without providing official reports on the nature of these activities.

What Russia is currently asking for is the opening of an international investigation that guarantees the safety of its citizens and lands from biological invasion, which is a legitimate right for it, at a time when the American responses to questions about its support for the development of these laboratories and spending huge sums on them are conflicting.

According to Russian officials, American actions violate the terms of the Biological Weapons Convention, which entered into force on March 26, 1975.

Today, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that it may use Articles V and VI of this agreement to hold consultations against the backdrop of US laboratories in Ukraine.

The Biological Weapons Convention consists of 7 articles:

Article 1: Under no circumstances can biological weapons be possessed.

Article 2: Biological weapons and associated sources must be destroyed or diverted to peaceful use.

Article 3: Do not transfer or in any way assist, encourage or induce any other party to acquire biological weapons.

Article Four: Take any measures on a national scale to implement the treaty locally.

Article 5: Bilateral or collective consultation to solve any problem related to the implementation of the treaty.

Article Six: Requesting the United Nations Security Council to investigate any breach of the treaty and to comply with its subsequent resolutions.

Article Seven: Do all of the above in a manner that encourages the peaceful use of microbiology and biotechnology.

Under these agreements, states parties undertake to submit annual reports on specific activities related to the Biological Weapons Convention, including: data on research centers and laboratories, information on vaccine production facilities, information on national biodefense research and development programs, and announcing previous activities in biological research and development programmes. offensive or defensive, information on the spread of infectious diseases and similar events caused by toxins, information on legislation, regulations, and other measures.

Conflicting US statements On March 10, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published a document it received from biological laboratory workers in Ukraine, which revealed data on the development of biological weapons by the United States and its NATO allies in Ukraine.

Information was revealed about the project "Transmission of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus through migratory birds", in addition to other projects, such as pathogens such as bacteria and viruses that can be transmitted from bats to humans.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki, in her tweets, avoided answering questions about American biological laboratories in Ukraine, but she found enough time to accuse Russia of preparing to use these weapons, without providing any evidence of the correctness of her words. US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, during hearings in the US Senate, stated that “the Biden administration is already funding a whole chain of biological laboratories in Ukraine,” and stated that “their contents are so dangerous that we are deeply concerned that these materials will fall into the hands of the Russian army".

US journalist Tucker Carlson told Fox News that the US statements were "unreliable," noting that "Noland and Psaki almost simultaneously made contradictory statements about whether there were secret US-funded biological laboratories in Ukraine." Another statement from the US administration came from the Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes, yesterday, Thursday, which admitted that "Ukraine operates more than 10 biological laboratories related to defense and health projects," noting that "the US government has provided Kiev with biological safety assistance."

Russia and China demand clarifications On March 11, the UN Security Council held a special meeting, at Russia's request, to discuss US military biological activities in Ukraine, after the Russian Ministry of Defense received documents that the US side had established a network of biological laboratories on Ukrainian soil, and found evidence of conducting Hazardous biological experiments in facilities, with the aim of amplifying pathogens of various deadly diseases, according to the Russian “eadaily” website.

China has also joined the Russian rhetoric demanding facts. According to the representative of the People's Republic of China to the United Nations, Zhang Jun, Moscow's concerns about biological weapons in Ukraine should be treated with due attention, and he urged Washington to clarify its biological militarization activities at home and abroad. However, in its response, the United States did not provide an adequate explanation on the matter and stated that it had concerns that the Russian military might attempt to take control of these targets.

The US side claims that the purpose of these institutions is to provide animal health guarantees, fund repairs, and establish modern laboratories, which enhance the government's ability to conduct public monitoring of potential human health threats.

The secrecy of the laboratories opens the door to questions Former Chief of Staff of Chemical War d. Muhammad al-Shahawi spoke, during an interview on Al-Mayadeen TV, about Russia's fears that Ukrainian extremists might control these weapons and use them against the Russian army.

He pointed out that the danger of these weapons lies in the possibility of developing them in the genetic direction, as they can infect certain races without others.

He also pointed out that it is very clear that there are dangerous activities carried out by the United States and Ukraine in these laboratories, raising an important question:

The development of biological weapons The peaceful path can take place in well-known factories, so why are the US and Ukrainian sides working on developing them in secret laboratories?

It is known that these laboratories have a dual purpose: they are funded by the Americans, and their activities are carried out in top secret locations.

The United States spends huge amounts of money to maintain laboratories. For example, in Ukraine it spent 200 million dollars (the number of biological laboratories in Ukraine is more than 30).

In Georgia, he spends more than $150 million. In Kazakhstan, more than 130 million dollars. In Armenia, there are 12 biological laboratories.

After examining the experience of neighboring Georgia, one can see that the money spent on building such laboratories was several times higher than, say, US civil utilities.

This fact cannot but raise suspicion. In the event that it is proven that the laboratories were funded by the military department, the missions will be entirely military.

This was confirmed by the Russian Ministry of Defense in statements to its spokesperson, Major General Igor Konashenkov, after revealing documents proving the Pentagon's involvement in financing these laboratories.

"During the special military operation, documents and evidence were uncovered during a careful combing of the traces of a military biological program being implemented in Ukraine with funding from the US Department of Defense," Konashenkov said, stressing that "the Pentagon is deeply concerned about the disclosure of its secret biological experiments in Ukraine since the start of the Russian operation." in the country". •
