The US is trying to increase its “biological presence” outside of its territory, including in former Soviet republics. Moscow has information that Washington offered Georgia the opportunity to extend the scope of biological research projects in a US-owned lab in the country, which is called the Lugar laboratory. It is possible the US is researching materials causing dangerous diseases.
The US equips bio-laboratories in the territories of the post-Soviet countries precisely because they are afraid of the leakage of infectious substances and waste into its territory. Such laboratories are located not only in Ukraine, but also in Georgia and in other countries surrounding Russia.
Recurrent Kremlin-led conspiracy theory not supported by any evidence.
The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine denies all these claims. On the contrary, in Ukraine, the U.S. Department of Defence’s Biological Threat Reduction Programme works with the Ukrainian Government to consolidate and secure pathogens and toxins of security concern in Ukrainian government facilities while allowing for peaceful research and vaccine development.
"We also work with our Ukrainian partners to ensure Ukraine can detect and report outbreaks caused by dangerous pathogens before they pose security or stability threats", the US Embassy stated.
There are numerous similar disinformation cases about coronavirus claiming that it was created in a laboratory, or that it is an Anglo-Saxon biological warning: originates in US labs, is a US provocation against China, a tool to weaken the Chinese economy, an attempt by the Anglo-Saxons to control China.
