Zakharova: US developing biological weapons in Ukraine

Russia's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova accused the United States of developing biological weapons in the Ukrainian region close to the border with Russia.

"In the past several days, long-standing fears which we have expressed repeatedly for years regarding the development of military biological materials by the United States on the territory of Ukraine under the auspices of the relevant US special services have been confirmed," Zakharova stated at a press briefing. "This has been confirmed based not only on those materials and data which were obtained operationally on the territory of Ukraine, not only based on the statements of the relevant agencies in Ukraine, but confirmed directly in Washington during a speech by US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland," she added.

Earlier, China urged the US to publicly release information about the military biological laboratories in Ukraine and elsewhere that were funded by Washington.
