Kirillov said this at a session of the III Congress of Young Scientists.

"The Ministry of Defense assumes the dismissal of them (the Armed Forces of Ukraine. – RT) activity towards non-standard forms of warfare, including the use of biological agents," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Kirillov clarified that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can deliberately contaminate water resources, including drinking water. In addition, Kyiv may go so far as to contaminate food and animal feed stocks, he added.

Earlier it became known that in a Ukrainian laboratory on the territory of the Kherson region, research was carried out in the interests of the United States, including the study of strains capable of causing epidemics.
