Russia has requested a meeting of the UN Security Council over purported U.S. military-biological activities in Ukraine.
Igor Kirillov of the Russian Defense Ministry, and head of the Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Protection of Troops, presented alleged evidence regarding the Pentagon-funded “Biological Threat Reduction” program in Ukraine. Watch:
“We’ve discovered details about Project UP-4, implemented with involvement of laboratories in Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa, and planned for period until 2020. The project’s goal was to research a potential of spread of particularly dangerous infections via migrating birds, including the highly pathogenic H5N1 flu, whose lethality for humans can reach 50%, as well as Newcastle disease,” Kirillov said.
Dmitry Polyansky, First Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, reported on the Russians’ request.
“Russian Mission asked for a meeting of Security Council for 11 March to discuss the military biological activities of the US on the territory of Ukraine,” Polyansky tweeted.
Polyansky cited Ministry of Defense documents that allegedly show the operation of a biowarfare research program in Ukraine. Those documents have been obtained by Becker News and translated excerpts from the original Ukrainian and Russian are provided below.
One letter provided by the Russians purported to show “the risk of new infections from insectivorous bats in Ukraine and Georgia.”
“Identification of new viral (coronavirus, filovirus, paramyxovirus, orthomyxovirus, lysavirus) bacterial (Brucella, Leptospira, Yersinia) pathogens significant for human and animal health from bats in Ukraine and Georgia; Investigation of how landscape biodiversity change affects the composition of endemic viral and bacterial agents in bat populations, as well as an assessment of their eco-evolutionary relationship with the occurrence of diseases in humans and domestic animals; Building a sustainable and harmonious system for the early detection of dangerous agents from bat populations in Ukraine and Georgia and their further genomic description.”
“Method: Integration of a multidisciplinary interdepartmental coalition from institutes and universities of health and veterinary medicine, which will contribute to the creation of a regional self-sufficient multinational group for the early detection and typing of agents, while creating a sophisticated analytical base for their adequate assessment,” the document continued.
“Application: This project will be implemented and integrated through the coordinated work of the National Research Center Institute for Experimental and Clinical Veterinary Medicine, the National Center for Public Health and Disease Control, the Centers for Disease Control in cooperation with the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and the US Geological Survey,” the document added.
“The results of scientific work will be useful for the evolution of bacterial and viral infectious diseases, early warning systems and health of people and animals around the world, as well as for the environment,” it noted.
“Engaged Personnel: More than 60 scientists from the USA, Ukraine and Georgia with various degrees and experience will participate in field research, diagnostics, molecular typing, Sanger sequencing, next generation sequencing, bioinformatics, ecological niche modeling and data visualization,” the document went on.
“Financing: Total for Ukraine and Georgia for the period 2020-2023 – 1.6 million US dollars, of which 207-398 thousand dollars per year for the IEKVM, 178-257 thousand dollars per year for the NCHCHD, 53 thousand dollars per year for the STCU, a total of $1,554,519 for the CDC ($512,000-527,000 per year),” the document stated.
The original document provided by the Russian Ministry of Defense can be viewed below.
One letter showed alleged U.S. and Ukrainian collaboration and was addressed to Brandt Siegel, who is an International Project Manager at Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
“Dear Mr. Brandt Siegel: We take this opportunity to express our deep respect to you and the US Department of Defense Threat Reduction Agency for many years of fruitful cooperation and support of Ukrainian veterinary science,” the translated letter states. “In response to your letter DTRO 21-016 dated January 26, 2021, the NAAS Department of Veterinary Medicine (National Research Center ‘Institute of Experimental and Clinical Veterinary Medicine’ and the NAAS Institute of Veterinary Medicine) prepared short descriptions of five project proposals focusing on study of particularly dangerous microorganisms”:
- Improvement of possibilities for regional cooperation and capacity building for emerging ruminant diseases (foot-and-mouth disease, bluetongue, lumpy skin disease and sheep and goat pox) surveillance system in the Eurasian nosoareal.
- Regional monitoring of emerging poultry diseases (influenza, Newcastle disease) in migrating wild birds in the Eurasian migration corridor, and characteristics of circulating pathogens.
- Risk assessment and zoonotic threats identification in reptiles as a reservoir of zoonotic pathogens using NGS (full genome sequencing).
- Study of the African swine fever natural foci formation in Ukraine.
- Study of reemergence risks of Anthrax in Ukraine.
“We send you these proposals (Appendix – 5 pages),” the letter added. “They will also be emailed to Dr. Megan Howard.”
Another letter named the groups that had access to the research data.
“The following U.S.-based groups can view data on all study subjects included in this protocol, as well as flag instances of non-compliance with this protocol: U.S. Department of Defense, UNMHSC Study Subject Protection, and UTHSC Bioethics Committees,” the letter said.
“The Bioethics Committee of Ukraine may also review records to ensure they comply with Ukrainian regulatory standards,” the letter added. “In addition, any data obtained from this study should be available for verification upon request of the Ukrainian Committee of Bioethics and representatives of the US Department of Defense. One member of the study team will monitor the quality of the study and apply measures to ensure it is of the required level.”
The Russians also held up documents from OpentheBooks.com that showed collaboration between U.S. and Ukrainian scientists, such as regarding the disease Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF). The visit was planned for November 12, 2018.

Meanwhile, Congress is moving this week to dismiss a proposed cut to a Pentagon-funded biosecurity program, Roll Call reported.
“The defense section of the federal spending package that the Senate is expected to clear as early as Thursday night would allocate $229 million for the Biological Threat Reduction Program in fiscal 2022, just above the current $225 million level of spending — instead of the 45 percent cut the Biden administration had proposed,” the report noted.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was given a non-denial denial about the Pentagon-funded biolabs program in Ukraine and discussed it on air on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, however, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took to Twitter 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.”
