The Russian accusations of a U.S.-funded and administered ‘biowarfare’ laboratory research program in Ukraine has led to the international community’s wonders about USA’s interference in the conflict…
And whether it was really that natural.

The Russians’ insistence that it has evidence of such a bioweapons program has become a major hurdle at the diplomatic negotiations between Russia and Ukraine in Belarus.
The foreign Minister of Russia, Sergei Lavrov, charged at a press conference last week that “the Pentagon built two biowarfare labs and they have been developing pathogens there in Kyiv and in Odessa.”
In his statement, he further compared the presence of the laboratories to the United States’ Weapons of Mass Destruction program allegations that led it to invade Iraq in 2003 and topple dictator Saddam Hussein.
At the same time, Leonid Slutsky, head of the Duma Committee on International Affairs and a member of the Russian delegation at the talks with Ukraine, argued that “the purported development of biological weapons components confirm that the Russian Federation had good reasons for conducting a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine.”
Major General Igor Konashenkov, an official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, charged on Sunday that “components of biological weapons were being developed in Ukraine, in close proximity to Russian territory.”
Amid the Russians’ accusations, the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has scrubbed a number of documents related to the Ukrainian “Biological Threat Reduction” program.
They have been retrieved and have been uploaded on the Internet.

In 2011 EIDSS was introduced in Ukraine with installations at the following sites:
– Central Sanitary-Epidemiology Station in Kyiv (CSES)
– Ukrainian Research Anti-Plague Institute in Odessa (URAPI)
– Vinnitsa Oblast Sanitary-Epidemiological Station
– Vinnitsa City Sanitary- Epidemiological Station
– Kalynivska Rayon Sanitary- Epidemiological Station in Vinnitsa Oblast
– Zhitomir Oblast Sanitary- Epidemiological Station
– Khmelnitska Oblast Sanitary- Epidemiological Station as regional sites
“The main objective of the program is to implement EIDSS at the sites of the State Sanitary-Epidemiological Service of Ukraine for monitoring and outbreak prevention ofdiseases including those caused by Especially Dangerous Pathogens,” the document adds.

“The biological threat reduction program is working in 27 countries,” the U.S. ambassador to Kazakhstan William Moser said. “We’ve feel this disinformation and misinformation is done just to really exploit divisions.”
“We’ve had accusations that some research projects were being used to create threats, not to identify threats and reduce them,” Dr. Mary Lancaster added. “Ulterior motives are being injected where none exist.”
“We’ve built these capabilities for the partners, their central reference labs for research,” Lance Brooks said. “They publish everything they do. They invite the international community into their laboratories. They’re working on behalf and the benefit of the people of their respective countries.”
