MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. The US, by refusing to investigate the activities of its biological laboratories and putting pressure on the positions of other countries, confirms the danger of its military-biological project in Ukraine, Russian State Duma Deputy Speaker and Co-Chair of the Parliamentary Commission on Investigation of US Biological Laboratories in Ukraine Irina Yarovaya said on Thursday, commenting on the UN Security Council's refusal to adopt a Russian draft resolution to create a commission to investigate the activities of such biolabs.
"The US refusal to investigate and its pressure on the positions of other countries is another stark confirmation of the danger of the US bioweapons project in Ukraine. In addition, this is a dangerous signal to the whole world about the hidden military-biological threat developed and implemented by the Pentagon," the State Duma press service quoted Yarovaya as saying. According to her, the document was supported by Russia and China, while "Kiev's partners: the UK, the US and France" were against it with other countries abstaining. Yarovaya also recalled that the research of German scientists had already proved the artificial origin of the COVID-19 virus, which only confirmed the need for further investigation into US biolaboratories.
According to the lawmaker, the investigation proposed by Russia "would probably provide answers to many questions about the economic losses and the irreversible loss of human lives that the world has already suffered". But Russia and China remain the only countries taking an "honest and open" stance on the need for an investigation. "I am sure that the countries that abstained from voting are those that are open to dialogue and interested in removing the secret veil from US experiments and military-biological infiltration into Ukraine and other countries. The Russian parliament initiates discussions on these issues through friendship groups," Yarovaya stressed.
She also recalled that earlier the State Duma and the Federation Council adopted an appeal to the parliaments of the world about the need to strengthen the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC). "In the run-up to the IX BWC Review Conference we will invite our colleagues to discuss and work out joint decisions on strengthening confidence and control measures to ensure equal and indivisible security and prevent threats and risks of undermining the BWC," Yarovaya added.
