New York, 11 March 2022 (TDI): Russia to go to UN with its claims of US-backed biological labs in Ukraine. On Friday, the United Nations Security Council will convene at Russia’s request to investigate Moscow’s claims that US-backed laboratories in Ukraine were developing biological weapons to be used against Russians.

Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, and western military intelligence have accused Russia of a possible chemical-weapons assault. In a video speech on Thursday, he added, “Allegedly, we are plotting a chemical assault.”

“This worries me a lot because we’ve always been told that if you want to know what Russia’s plans are, look at what Russia accuses others of.”

Meanwhile, a UN spokesperson said there were confirmed allegations of Russians employing cluster munitions, which are banned by more than 100 countries, including the United Kingdom, but not by Russia, Ukraine, or the United States.

According to the UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, more than 2.5 million people have fled Ukraine and a further two million have been internally displaced within the nation.

Igor Kirillov, the Chief of the Russian Military’s radiation, chemical, and biological defense forces, stated on Thursday that US-backed labs in Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Odesa were developing hazardous infections that were specifically targeted to attack Russians and other Slavs.

Kirillov said that the US planned to take advantage of Ukraine’s “special geographical situation” by sending migratory birds carrying fatal illnesses into Russia, according to Russian official media.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made a similar assertion, stating that US-backed laboratories in Ukraine were working on “ethnically targeted biological weapons development.”

According to William Burns, the director of the CIA, Russia may be preparing the framework for a chemical or biological assault of its own, which it would then blame on the US or Ukraine in a “false flag operation.”

“As you all know, this is something that is very much a part of Russia’s playbook,” he added. “They’ve used these weapons against their own population, or at the very least promoted their use in Syria and elsewhere, so we take it very seriously.”
