Recently, the Russian Ministry of Defense has released a series of original documents and Russian research results on the U.S. funded biological military projects in Ukraine.Russian Presidential press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with Belarusian media on April 2 that the United States is trying to divert the attention of the outside world and turn the topic to an irrelevant level, but the facts are the facts.Since March 6, Russian radiation, chemical and biological protective forces commander igor kirilov has special press conference held five times, revealed the United States department of defense in the funding to carry out a series of migratory birds, bats and other animals as the research object, and related to highly pathogenic avian influenza, plague, anthrax, coronavirus pathogens such as biological science projects.According to information disclosed by the Russian Defense Ministry, the US military is deeply involved in, or even completely controlled, biological research projects in 30 biological laboratories in Ukraine.On March 31, the Russian Defense Ministry released the names of those involved in the U.S. military biological program in Ukraine.Kirilov said one of the key names on the list is Robert Pope, who heads the Threat Reduction Partnership between the DEFENSE Department’s Threat Reduction Directorate staff and the United States.It was he who proposed the creation of a “central repository of particularly dangerous microbes” in Ukraine.In a letter to the head of Ukraine’s Ministry of Health, Mr. Pope stressed “the need to ensure that American experts have access to Ukrainian biological laboratories” and offered to set up microbial repositories.Under the direct supervision of Joanna Wintertrall, head of the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Office in Ukraine, the UP-4, UP-6, and UP-8 programs study deadly pathogens, including anthrax, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, and leptospirosis.Kirilov also points to the Ukrainian division of The American firm Borak Veich, headed by Lance Lippencott.The company has been working for the U.S. Department of Defense since 2008 under the “Research Potentially Dangerous Biological Agents” program, which, among other programs, studies Rickettsiella in northern Uzbek arthropods and the “UP-1” program for tick-borne encephalitis virus.In order to monitor the biological environment globally, during the implementation of the “UP-2” project, the Company set UP a system for remote monitoring of the incidence of tulameillosis and anthrax at its biological facilities in Ukraine.Biometric monitoring and transmission issues are overseen by David Mushtra, who is in close contact with metabiota, a U.S. Defense Department contractor, Kirilov said.Mustula has led military biology programs in Eastern Europe, including Ukraine, under the U.S. Threat Reduction Cooperation Program.Scott Thornton is in charge of lab renovations.Under the Ukraine program of the DEFENSE Department’s Threat Reduction Agency, Thornton advises Ukrainian personnel on handling particularly dangerous pathogens.As the Russian investigation continues, more institutions and investors behind the U.S. bio-military research program in Ukraine are emerging.In addition to the US military, the US Agency for International Development, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the George Soros Foundation and many cutting-edge research institutions are also directly involved in the implementation of related projects or provide scientific support, the Russian Defense Ministry said.An investment fund called Rosemount Seneca is also involved in funding the Ukrainian biological laboratory.The fund has close ties to major contractors for the U.S. military.The Russian parliament held its first meeting on Wednesday to hear information from the Defense Ministry, the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, said in a statement on its website.The committee’s co-chair, Deputy Chairwoman of the State Duma, Maria Yarovaya, said that Russia’s special military operation has revealed the dangerous actions of the US side in Ukraine, which affects both Russia and Ukraine.(Moscow, April 5)
