In the course of the special operation in Ukraine, newly documented evidence has been discovered that for several years components of biological weapons have in fact been created in the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders – in violation of the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction. At the Permanent Council meeting on 22 April, we already touched on the topic of US military biological research in Ukraine. We spoke about specific projects involving human experimentation. Today we want to draw attention to new circumstances that have emerged confirming the imminent threats posed to international security by such activities.
