Russia sniffs out conspiracies and advocates bizarre theories at the United Nations. They are afraid of “mice and mosquitoes”
- Russia fears Ukraine may use biological weapons in war and that the United States and Western European countries are involved in researching them
- Three UN Security Council meetings have been convened in the past few days, all at the initiative of Russia, which is demanding an international investigation into alleged biological weapons
- The United States assures that neither the USA nor Ukraine have a biological weapons program, and any reports by Russia about it are “spreading disinformation”
- More interesting information can be found on the Onet homepage
The Russians have been around for several months accuse the United States and other countries (including Poland) o research into biological weapons and the pursuit of their use for military purposes. Earlier, Moscow had appealed to the United Nations, demanding an international investigation into the matter. Over the last few days, as many as three meetings of the UN Security Council, convened at the initiative of Russia, have been held. Vasily Nebenzia, Russia’s permanent representative at the United Nations, spoke there about the need to take a closer look at some American projects. The alleged Ukrainian biological laboratories and the US participation in their work were discussed at the last meeting.

Nebenzia believes that “the US will not be able to escape responsibility if it is proven that it violates the Biological Weapons Convention.” According to documents allegedly held by the Russians, research projects concern, inter alia, ‘The potential for the spread of dangerous infections by migratory birds including highly pathogenic influenza and Newcastle disease.’ “Mice, including those capable of infecting people with plague, leptospirosis, brucellosis, as well as coronaviruses and filoviruses” are also suspicious.
The United States and Ukraine ensure that all research is conducted solely for medical purposes, and Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US permanent representative to the United Nations, commented on the Russian representative saying that “this is another waste of time.” – Russia has brought us back here for one purpose: to spread disinformation. We all know these accusations are fabricated, and there is not even an ounce of evidence in them. Ukraine does not have a biological weapons program, as confirmed by the United Nations. The US also does not have a biological weapons program, she said.
But Russia does not seem to believe these assurances. The service ntv.ru reported that in March in the Kherson Oblast, Russian troops found three drones equipped with 30-liter containers that can be used to spray bio-agents. They also allegedly have information about a drone patented in the United States that can spread mosquitoes infected with dangerous viruses. “All of this raises concerns in Russia,” reads the website.
Russia intends to submit to the Security Council a motion for a resolution to investigate the activities of Ukrainian biological laboratories. It is not known, however, whether it will be possible to vote it, “due to resistance from Western countries,” as ntv.ru points out.
