Russia’s Radiological, Chemical, and Biological Defense (RCB) Troops began detailing the extent of the US bioweapons program in Ukraine last spring. Washington initially dismissed the revelations, but undersecretary of state Victoria Nuland eventually confirmed that the US does indeed have Biolabs in Ukraine.
The Russian military has accumulated a collection of over 20,000 documents related to the US military-biological program in Ukraine, RCB Troops Chief Igor Kirillov has revealed.
“Over the period of the special military operation, Russian troops have secured over 20,000 documents, references, and analytical materials, and interviewed eyewitnesses and participants in American military-biological programs,” the officer said in a briefing in Moscow on Monday.
These materials, which continue to be reviewed and deciphered, confirm without a doubt the Pentagon’s intent to create biological weapons in Ukraine, and to test them out on the populations of the Eastern European country and its neighbors, Kirillov said.
The RCB Troops chief provided a number of new details on Washington’s activities, including a large-scale effort he said was undertaken in 2022 to evacuate Ukrainian specialists working on bioweapons to Western countries, including the US, Canada, and the European Union. The relocation was undertaken in part to prevent Russia from interviewing this personnel to obtain more information about activities that may be in contravention of international obligations and treaty norms, Kirillov said.
Kirillov also outlined US efforts to transfer biological materials out of Ukraine into Poland, the Baltic states and Central Asia amid the curtailing of programs in Ukraine.
“The Pentagon is actively transferring unfinished research in the framework of Ukrainian projects to the states of Central Asia and Europe,” the officer said, adding that Russia has information on US efforts to ramp up bio-defense cooperation with countries in Africa and the Asia-Pacific region as well -including Kenya, Singapore, and Thailand.
“Under pressure from the international community, Washington is changing its approaches to organizing military-biological activities, shifting the functions of the customer to civilian departments – the Department of Health, the Energy Department, and the United States Agency for International Development [USAID, ed]. This allows the US administration to avoid criticism at international venues” and reduce pressure on the Pentagon and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Kirillov said.
