Russia’s Investigative Committee opens case on Ukraine’s development of biological arms

The West denies their presence in the information space now, Bastrykin noted

MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. The Investigative Committee of Russia qualified creation of secret biological laboratories in Ukraine with the US support under the article on development of mass casualty biological weapons, Chairman of the Committee Alexander Bastrykin said in an interview with TASS.

"We requested available documents from the Russian Defense Ministry and we are ascertaining circumstances of what happened within the framework of the criminal case opened by us under the article of development and production of mass casualty biological arms," Bastrykin said.

The West denies their presence in the information space now, he noted. "However, we remember statements of US representatives saying the opposite when speaking about presence of biological facilities in Ukraine. It is difficult to image what could occur if these sites continued their operations," Bastrykin added.

Facts of emergency cleanup of traces of the military biological program implemented by the Kiev regime and funded by the US Department of Defense were found during the special military operation, official spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov said earlier.
