Pentagon and Kyiv transfer pathogens and biomaterials – Russia

MOSCOW, RUSSIA — Under the pretext of reducing the risks of the spread of infectious diseases, Kyiv continues to cooperate with the Pentagon in the military-biological field, including the transfer of pathogenic biomaterials. This was announced on Friday, March 10, by Igor Kirilov, head of the troops for radiation, chemical, and biological protection of the Russian armed forces.

He noted that despite the statement of the spokesman of the US National Security Council, John Kirby, that the biological laboratories in Ukraine were disabled before the start of the Russian special operation to protect Donbas, the documents obtained show the opposite. In particular, Kirilov referred to the “Program for Combating Particularly Dangerous Pathogens in Ukraine.”

“The document reports on the continuation of the DITRA biological program in Ukraine and outlines the main tasks for the current period. Among them is the further consolidation of collections of dangerous pathogens, as well as the implementation of systems for bio-risk management and monitoring of the epidemiological situation,” Kirilov said at a briefing.

He also noted that in January of this year, Ukraine approved new requirements for reporting, storage, transportation, and destruction of microorganisms, toxins, and poisons of animal and plant origin. Particular attention is paid to the international air transport of substances with the highest hazard class “A”, which include biological agents that can cause injury and death.

“At the same time, only American laboratories or companies are indicated as recipients and senders of dangerous biomaterials,” said the representative of the Ministry of Defense.

Also during the briefing, he said that the United States is conducting a program to strengthen dangerous pathogens in Central Asia and the Caucasus. According to Kirilov, the purpose of such actions may be provocations with dangerous pathogens, followed by the imposition of responsibility on the Russian Federation. recalls that last March Kirilov said: “A company related to the military department, mainly Black and Veatch, is involved in the implementation of the DITRA project. The work is carried out in three main directions. First of all, it is the monitoring of the biological situation, as stated by the Pentagon, in the proposed areas for the deployment of military contingents of the countries of the NATO bloc. The second is the collection and export to the United States of strains of dangerous microorganisms The third strand is research work to study potential biological weapons specific to this region that have natural outbreaks and can be transmitted to humans.”

Earlier, in late February, the Ministry of Defense reported that the United States and its allies intended to stage a provocation in Ukraine using toxic chemicals, as evidenced by the unloading of 11 railcars of irritant munitions in Kramatorsk. In addition, the department said that samples of the poisonous substance BZ, the complete destruction of the stockpile which the Pentagon announced more than 30 years ago, are preserved in the United States.
