  • The Russian Defence Ministry continues to study documents received from employees of Ukrainian laboratories about secret military biological activities of the United States in Ukraine.
  • Experts of the Russian Nuclear, Biological and Chemical protection troops during the study of documents revealed new facts proving the direct involvement of the US Department of Defence in the development of biological weapons components in Ukraine.
  • In the near future, we will show original documents demonstrating that UP-2 biological project, which we have already talked about, was developed and approved by the Pentagon. The main objective of this project was to carry out a molecular analysis of particularly dangerous infections endemic to Ukraine. This work involved sampling the pathogen from old animal burial grounds to obtain new anthrax strains.
  • However, the Pentagon’s experiments were not limited to the development of dangerous infections. For example, a pharmaceutical company contracted by the US Department of Defence, according to documents obtained, was working with the Ukrainian Defence Ministry to test unregistered medical drugs specifically on Ukrainian servicemen.
  • We will tell you about these and other documented facts in the near future within a special briefing.
