MOSCOW, June 16. /TASS/. Hunter Biden’s correspondence indicates that in US government circles he lobbied in favor of Metabiota involved in biological projects in Ukraine, Chief of Russian Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Force Igor Kirillov said on Thursday.
At a briefing on the results of the analysis of documents related to Washington’s military biological activity in Ukraine, he pointed out that Russia’s Defense Ministry had already noted Hunter Biden’s important role in creating a financial opportunity to work with pathogens on Ukrainian soil and attracting funds for Black & Veatch and Metabiota companies.
"Biden’s published correspondence with the leadership of the Rosemont Seneca investment firm indicate the use of an administrative resource and an open lobbying in favor of the Metabiota company in the US government circles," the military official said. He noted that the firm’s managing director John DeLoche was asking Biden whether there was anybody they could call in Washington to get an idea how seriously Metabiota was taken by various government institutions.
The Russian military official explained that such phrasing raises "an issue of [Hunter] Biden’s personal financial interest" as well as that of other co-founders of Rosemont Seneca in the implementation of the US military biological program in Ukraine and an issue of a corruption element.
According to him, the evident absence of investment appeal of projects on reconstructing Ukrainian biolaboratories raises doubts in the transparency of their financial activity. He also noted that the financing from non-governmental sources allows the Pentagon not to report to the Senate budget committee on the goals and results of military biological research which allows to hide it from the public.
