Russia claims it has more evidence on biolabs in Ukraine

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated on Wednesday that the European Union's members that accept refugees from Ukraine test them for tuberculosis because they are aware of the existence of biological laboratories in that country.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Zakharova said Russia will invoke Articles 5 and 6 of the United Nations' (UN) Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) and therefore demand a wider investigation into the United States' involvement in the development of biological weapons in Ukraine.

Zakharova also commented on Ukraine's decision to, as she said, forcibly seize PJSC Sberbank and VEB.RF's assets in that country, describing it as a "banal robbery."
