State Department spokesman Ned Price spoke about the US participation in the work of laboratories in Ukraine, RIA Novosti reports.
According to him, the participation of the American side in the work of Ukrainian biological laboratories did not go beyond a framework for occasional security assistance.
“The US government does not own or operate biological laboratories in Ukraine. Period,” Price said during a conversation with reporters.
A State Department spokesman also assured that Kyiv “fully complies” conventions on biological or chemical weapons.
Recall that earlier the Russian military revealed the facts of an emergency cleansing by the Kiev regime of traces of a military biological program funded by the US military department.
Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov , in turn, expressed the opinion that the United States is afraid of being convicted of violating the convention on the prohibition of biological and toxin weapons.
