The Pentagon confirms Ukraine’s role in “biodefense” with 46 biolabs on site. The conspiracy theory is now just another certified Pentagon press release.
After months of denial, the Pentagon finally admits the existence of 46 biolabs in Ukraine
The United States has also worked collaboratively to improve biosafety and biosecurity and human and animal disease surveillance in Ukraine, supporting 46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities, and disease diagnostic sites during of the last two decades.
Collaborative programs have focused on improving public health and agricultural security measures at the heart of nonproliferation.
In your opinion, is this the only thing they would have improved? Or intensified? Ah those American Democrats, always there to help…

The Pentagon finally admits to having run 46 biolabs in Ukraine.
In a recent document, the Pentagon admitted that it runs 46 biolabs in Ukraine.but says they are peaceful efforts to improve nuclear and radiation safety and security, disease surveillance, chemical safety and security, and preparedness to respond to epidemics and pandemics such as COVID-19.
According to the Pentagon, the US government has funded 46 biological research facilities in Ukraine over the past 20 years, but only as part of a peaceful public health effort and not to develop weapons. Russia and China have been accused by the US military of “spreading disinformation and sowing distrust” about its efforts to rid the world of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
In a document entitled “Fact Sheet on WMD Threat Reduction Efforts”, the United States Department of Defense revealed for the first time the precise number of installations of this type sponsored by his government in Ukraine.
According to the Pentagon, the United States has “worked collaboratively to improve Ukraine’s biosafety, security, and disease surveillance for both human and animal health,” supporting “46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities and disease diagnosis sites over the past two decades”. These programs focused on “improving public health and agricultural security measures at the heart of non-proliferation”.
The Pentagon insisted that the work of these biolabs was “often” carried out in collaboration with organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), and that was “consistent with international best practices and standards in publishing research results, partnering with international colleagues and multilateral organizations, and widely disseminating their research and public health results. »

According to the Russian military, as of last month only three labs in Ukraine had the security criteria required to undertake the type of research they were conducting. Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, head of the radioactive, chemical and biological protection forces, referred to Ukrainian government sources to point to a series of problems at one such site, in Odessa, as an example. he Russian military provided evidence of the Pentagon’s role in funding labs in Ukraine in a series of briefings that began in March. Mr Kirillov accused kyiv of carrying out “inhumane experiments” on Ukrainian patients and launching a biological attack on the separatist territory of Lugansk in early May. Other evidence suggests that when Russia moved troops to Ukraine in February, attempts were made to arm drones to spread pathogens and destroy compromising materials.
Between 2005 and early 2022, the United States has poured more than $224 million into biological research in Ukraine, according to the Russian Investigative Committee. According to Moscow, the conspiracy involved Western pharmaceutical giants, organizations, and even the United States Democratic Party.
The United States has “full approval” from the Russian government to employ “thousands of former Russian bioweapons scientists to conduct peaceful biological research projects for public health purposes,” according to the Pentagon.
The U.S. military states elsewhere in the document that it attempts to offer “sustainable civilian employment” to scientists with “weapons knowledge” in order to “remove incentives to seek or accept employment and financing of terrorists or other state actors. »
The Pentagon said U.S. involvement in biological labs in Ukraine “remains peaceful efforts to improve nuclear and radiological safety and security, disease surveillance, chemical safety and security, and disaster preparedness.” respond to epidemics and pandemics such as COVID-19”.
At the same time, she accused Russia of trying to “undermine this work by spreading disinformation and sowing distrust in people and institutions around the world who are helping to reduce the WMD threat.” with the support of China.
In response to the Russian briefings, China demanded that the United States explain its actions in a “fair, objective and professional” manner.
Ukraine “has no nuclear, chemical or biological weapons program”, according to the Pentagon, and the limited amount of highly enriched uranium (HEU) that remains in research centers in Kyiv and Kharkov “is far less than the amount needed to produce a nuclear device. »
