[Global Times reporter Liu Yupeng] "The US biological laboratory in Ukraine is developing a new genotype biological weapon, and the US is eager to cover up the traces of its activities." Following the Russian Ministry of Defense, a former Ukrainian Security Service official once again To disclose to the outside world the situation of biological weapons research carried out by the US biological laboratory in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, at the UN Security Council meeting, the Russian representative criticized the United States for rejecting international inspections of its biological laboratories around the world.
Russian "Izvestia" reported on the 13th that on the 13th, Vasily Prozorov, a former official of the Ukrainian Security Service, said: "The Ukrainian Security Service controls all potentially dangerous facilities in the country, so any research and development using particularly dangerous pathogens in the country is necessary. The facilities that work are all under the control of the Ukrainian Security Service to a certain extent. The laboratories modernized according to the joint program of the US Department of Defense and the Ukrainian government have strict security mechanisms and are in principle inaccessible to even supervisors There. Even the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health was not allowed to enter. After the 'Plaza Revolution' in Ukraine, Ulyana Sopron, who holds American nationality, was the Minister of Health, working in the field of military-biological cooperation with the Americans Green light. I have a document here, the head of the US Department of Defense threat reduction agency thanked her directly, saying that without her support, they would not be able to succeed in military-biological co-development in Ukraine. Now the US is eager to cover up its use in these experiments traces of laboratory activities, took away equipment and work products. They fear that these documents will fall into the hands of Russia or international organizations. It is clear that work on the development of new biological weapons, including genetically selected types, is carried out in such laboratories in Ukraine Biological weapons. This is a direct violation of all international law."
On March 12, the Russian Satellite News Agency disclosed that records show that the United States has started a plan to fund Ukraine to establish a biological laboratory as early as 2005.
According to the report, information from the US Armed Forces Counter-Proliferation Center dated June 17, 2010 showed that then US Senator Richard Lugar "was responsible for the opening of the Temporary Central Reference Laboratory (ICRL) in Odessa, Ukraine. And applaud."
The above-mentioned laboratory is a tertiary biosafety laboratory, which means it is equipped with equipment to deal with dangerous pathogens on Earth, such as anthrax and kosher fever, the article said.
The lab is said to be specially designed to study these pathogens.
An archived version of the report from August of the same year shows that plans for a "temporary central reference laboratory" in Ukraine date back as far as 2005.
At the time, Lugar was coordinating efforts with Ukrainian authorities to study preventing the spread of the bird flu virus.
Eventually, Ukraine signed an agreement with the United States under the Nunn-Lugar Act, which sought to remove weapons of mass destruction from the former Soviet state, and agreed to build a modern laboratory on Ukrainian soil for processing and Research dangerous pathogens.
According to the information published on the official website of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, the satellite news laboratory of Xinhua News Agency has located more than ten biological laboratories of the United States in Ukraine, and used systematically integrated multi-source satellite remote sensing data and intelligent tools to monitor these laboratories. Observations were made.
According to reports, in Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city and only about 40 kilometers from the Russian-Ukrainian border, a biological laboratory supported by the United States is located in a forest.
The Russian side said that after the Russian side launched a special military operation, more than 140 containers containing bat ectoparasites - fleas and ticks were transferred abroad from the biological laboratory in Kharkiv, and a large number of them came from various regions of Ukraine. , Serum samples entirely belonging to the Slavic population were transferred abroad.
In Ukraine, most U.S. biolabs are located in urban communities.
Satellite imagery shows schools dotted around a U.S. biological laboratory in Kyiv.
Documents published by the Russian side show that laboratories in Kyiv, Kharkov and Odessa are involved in the UP-4 project, which is being implemented by the United States – this project will continue until 2020 to study the transmission of particularly dangerous viruses through migratory birds. Possibilities, including H5N1 avian influenza with a fatality rate of up to 50% in humans, and Newcastle virus infection.
The satellite image released by Xinhua also includes a biological laboratory built in Lviv.
For example, the Lviv Institute of Epidemiology and Health.
Russia believes that the Americans have moved most of their databases, biological materials and equipment from laboratories in Kyiv, Kharkov and Odessa to the Lviv Institute of Epidemiology and Health and the U.S. Consulate in Lviv .
Two other US biological laboratories in Lviv, one of which is a veterinary laboratory.
Documents obtained by the Russian military prove that the projects codenamed UP-2, UP-9, UP-10 target African swine fever, anthrax, etc.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on the 12th that the laboratory belonging to the United States found on Ukrainian territory is only a small part of more than 300 similar laboratories scattered around the world.
Russia will submit new documents on laboratory work.Keywords:
