US has “bioweapons” in Ukraine labs storing dangerous viruses

First it was Russia. Now it’s China which is accusing the United States of funding “dangerous” biological weapon laboratories in Ukraine.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian has tweeted a snippet from a press conference where he asked the US to release “relevant details as soon as possible” regarding alleged US biological laboratories in Ukraine. 

He captioned his Tweet as, “The US has 336 labs in 30 countries under its control, including 26 in Ukraine alone. It should give a full account of its biological military activities at home and abroad and subject itself to multilateral verification.”

Speaking in Mandarin, the official standard language of China, Zhao Lijian responded to a question posed at him by a local reporter. He said, “US Biolabs in Ukraine have indeed attracted much attention recently.”

“According to reports, in these facilities, large quantities of dangerous viruses are stored. Russia has found during its military operation that the US uses these facilities to conduct military plans. According to data released by the US it has 26 labs in Ukraine. The US has 336 labs in 30 countries under its control. The US has also conducted many biological military activities in Fort Detrick. What is the true intention of the US? what has it done specifically? The International community has doubts,” Zhao added.

He urged the US to give a full account of its biological military activities at home and abroad and accept multilateral verification.

The US State Department official Victoria Nuland in an oblique way has admitted that US-funded biolabs are being developed on Ukrainian soil. She said that the US was working with Ukraine to stop Russian forces from seizing biological research material. 

Russian defence ministry said at the start of the week that there were “evidence of a US-financed military biological programme developed in Ukraine.” 

Igor Konashenkov, the spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry, said, “In the course of the special military operation, evidence of the Kyiv regime’s hasty measures to conceal any traces of the military biological program finance by the US Department of Defense in Ukraine has been revealed.”
