“Taking advantage of loopholes in international legislation, the US administration is constantly increasing its biological-military capabilities in various regions of the world,” said Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, head of the radiological, chemical and biological protection troops.
During an informal consultation of the United Nations Security Council under the Arria formula, the senior official cited Chinese Foreign Ministry’s data, according to which Washington controls 336 laboratories in 30 states outside its national jurisdiction.
“In the territories bordering Russia and China alone there are about 60 facilities modernized since 2005 at the expense of the US military department,” Kirillov told RT channel.
He assured that thanks to the special operation by the Russian troops in Ukraine, the international community got access to information about the illegal military and biological research carried out in that country.
The US creates biological laboratories in different countries according to a common scenario and connects them to a unified system to monitor their biological situation, the specialist said.
According to Kirillov, Hunter Biden, US President Joe Biden’s second son, has played a key role in creating the financial opportunity to work with pathogens in Ukraine, according to data from the businessman’s correspondence with Pentagon officials, to which the Russian Defense Ministry had access.
The documents proved that he was in charge of fund-raising for Black & Veach and Metabiota, the companies that financed the military laboratories in Ukraine.
