W.H. Press Secretary Psaki didn’t address questions about the U.S.-funded Biological Threat reduction bio laboratories in Ukraine.
On Thursday, Psaki used her Twitter platform to blast the media for reporting on Russia and China-backed conspiracy theories.

“We took note of Russia’s false claims about alleged U.S. biological weapons labs and chemical weapons development in Ukraine,” Jen Psaki said on Twitter. “We’ve also seen Chinese officials echo these conspiracy theories.”
“This is preposterous,” she continued. “It’s the kind of disinformation operation we’ve seen repeatedly from the Russians over the years in Ukraine and in other countries, which have been debunked, and an example of the types of false pretexts we have been warning the Russians would invent.”
“The United States is in full compliance with its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Biological Weapons Convention and does not develop or possess such weapons anywhere,” she claimed. “It’s Russia that has a long and well-documented track record of using chemical weapons, including in attempted assassinations and poisoning of Putin’s political enemies like Alexey Navalny.”
“It’s Russia that continues to support the Assad regime in Syria, which has repeatedly used chemical weapons,” she went on. “It’s Russia that has long maintained a biological weapons program in violation of international law. Also, Russia has a track record of accusing the West of the very violations that Russia itself is perpetrating.”
“In December, Russia falsely accused the U.S. of deploying contractors with chemical weapons in Ukraine,” she continued. “This is all an obvious ploy by Russia to try to try to justify its further premeditated, unprovoked, and unjustified attack on Ukraine.”
“Now that Russia has made these false claims, and China has seemingly endorsed this propaganda, we should all be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine or to create a false flag operation using them,” she added. “It’s a clear pattern.”
It’s funny that China is propagating the bioweapons conspiracy theory even though here is the concern that Pentagon funded a similar program in Wuhan.
Pentagon’s spokesperson John Kirby issued a message.

Russia’s suspicions about the U.S.-funded Biolabs program in Ukraine were heightened by the statements of Nuland, the U.S. secretary of state for political affairs.
“Ukraine has biological research facilities, which in fact, we are now quite concerned,” Nuland said, “Russian troops, Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of, so we are working with the Ukrainians on how they can prevent any of those research materials from falling into the hands of Russian forces.”
Ukraine has given an order on February 24 to sterilize the facilities in the event of unforeseen military occupation, as documents revealed.
Here are the U.S.-funded Biolabs in Ukraine.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the U.S. of helping the Ukrainians with the development of biowarfare facilities in Kyiv and Odessa.
“We have data that the Pentagon is preoccupied with the chemical and biological installations in Ukraine,” Lavrov claimed. “The Pentagon built two biowarfare labs, and they have been developing pathogens there in Kyiv and in Odessa.”
“And now they are concerned that they may lose control over these labs,” he argued. “And you know what it may be like in the future. And the Americans decline flatly and resolutely to start an inspection mechanism as part of the convention for the prohibition of chemical weapons. And they build new chemical and biological facilities all across Russian borders.”
“And, you know, many other developments happen,” Lavrov went on. “The CIA has been on the ground in droves, and they have been training the Ukrainian army not to wage war with Poland, apparently. And when developments in Iraq happened, when the United States claimed it was a threat to the U.S. national security, did anyone ask back then why the United States back then decided to bring a country 10,000 kilometers off its coast to order, because the U.S. is a great power?”
“When Russia says there is a threat to us, they start telling us that there is not a threat at all, but you know, we will decide what is needed to provide for our security,” Lavrov stated. “And it’s close and next to our borders; we will not go 10,000 kilometers away to enforce our rules.”
Russia is invoking the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 as a pretext for invading Ukraine. In May, Lavrov accused the U.S. of “categorically opposing the adoption of a protocol to the convention of banning biological and toxin weapons, which would establish a mechanism to verify compliance by member countries with their obligation not to produce such weapons.”
Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Major General Igor Konahsekoc, stated that they would give an “analysis of documents” on a program to create biological weapons components in Ukraine.
“We are getting more and more confirmation that Russia had more than good reasons for conducting a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine,” Slutsky claimed on his Telegram channel.
