DISINFO: Strange coincidence of epidemics and research laboratories supported by the US in Ukraine
The US embassy in Ukraine officially recognised that they keep toxins and pathogens in Ukraine. Strangely, epidemics started next to those facilities.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about "secret laboratories" in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. See examples of similar disinformation narratives about the Lugar laboratory in Tbilisi, Georgia. The US supports the research against dangerous infectious diseases through the Biological Threat Reduction Program. The US Embassy in Ukraine reaffirmed that the country offers its support to ensure Ukraine can detect and report outbreaks caused by dangerous pathogens before they pose security or stability threats. No epidemics outbreak have been observed in connection to the laboratories activities.
