Washington warns against Moscow's use of biological or chemical weapons in Ukraine

Washington warns against Moscow’s use of biological or chemical weapons in Ukraine

On Wednesday, the White House warned against the use of chemical or biological weapons in Russia’s war on Ukraine, with false information spread by Moscow and China repeatedly claiming that there were US biological weapons laboratories in Ukraine..

“We have heard false allegations from Russia about US biological weapons laboratories and the development of chemical weapons in Ukraine. We have seen Chinese officials echo these conspiracy theories,” spokeswoman Zhen Zaki said on Twitter.

“Now Russia has made these false allegations, and China seems to have endorsed this campaign. We should all take note of Russia’s use of chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine,” he added.

“This is a clear ploy by Russia to justify its further deliberate, unjustified and unjustified attack on Ukraine,” Psaki said.

“Russia has a record of blaming the West for the same abuses that Russia did. In December, Russia falsely accused the United States of stopping chemical weapons contractors in Ukraine,” he said.

“Russia continues to support the Assad regime in Syria, which has repeatedly used chemical weapons. Russia has long maintained a biological weapons program in violation of international law,” Psaki said.

“Russia has a long and well-documented record of the use of chemical weapons, including attempts to assassinate and poison Putin’s political opponents, such as Alexei Navalny,” Zaki said.

“The United States fully complies with its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Biological Weapons Convention and has not developed or possessed such weapons anywhere,” he said.

Russian behavior is “unjustified, it is a process of misinformation, which we have repeatedly seen from Russians in Ukraine and other countries for many years.

A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Defense, John Kirby of the Pentagon, described the US allegations of Russian presence in Ukraine as “ridiculous and ridiculous.”

“We have not developed biological or biological weapons, and we have no information about the existence of such weapons in Ukraine,” Kirby said.
