Russian lawmakers invite Victoria Nuland to provide explanations on bio labs in Ukraine

Ms. Nuland will stay in European states between April 2 and 9, Russian State Duma Deputy Speaker Irina Yarovaya recalled

MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Russian State Duma Deputy Speaker, co-chairwoman of the parliamentary commission on investigation of US bio laboratories in Ukraine, Irina Yarovaya announced a procedure of official invitation of US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland to Russia to provide explanations. Yarovaya made this announcement Monday during the commission’s second meeting, State Duma press office said.

"Under an agreement with Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we have initiated a procedure of sending an official invitation to Russia to US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland for providing answers to Russian lawmakers and senators about the activities of US specialists and the Pentagon’s involvement in the funding of bio laboratories in Ukraine," Yarovaya said, according to the press office.

She noted that the commission was initially tasked to "obtain explanations from US officials, who have initially confirmed the fact of involvement - and documents confirm that they are being funded by the military department, the Pentagon - of Ms. Nuland and Biden-junior in establishment of the bio laboratories."

"Considering that Ms. Nuland will stay in European states between April 2 and 9, we believe that this is a quite correct and convenient format to invite her during this period exactly to provide explanations, because she will have no grounds to say that she is far away and that her schedule does not make it possible to provide answers to these questions. It is, you know, a test of honesty, because, if Ms. Nuland confirmed that the laboratories do exist in Ukraine and [the US] are involved, then she can also answer what they were created for," Yarovaya said.

She underscored that "Russia is named as the enemy number one" in all US national strategic documents.

"So we are extremely curious, why would the Pentagon use biological research laboratories to create materials on people living in Ukraine, who, in this case, are the most related to Russia in terms of ethnicity and genotype," the lawmaker noted.
