The United States junked Russia’s claims that it supports a bioweapons program in Ukraine on Wednesday, Mar. 9, stating that the allegations thrown at them might suggest that Moscow would soon use the weapons themselves.

“The Kremlin is intentionally spreading outright lies that the United States and Ukraine are conducting chemical and biological weapons activities in Ukraine,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also said that the assertions were “preposterous”, noting that they have also seen how the Chinese officials evoke these conspiracy theories.

“Now that Russia has made these false claims… 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,” Psaki stated on Twitter.

On Sunday, Mar. 6, Moscow’s foreign ministry wrote in a tweet that Russian forces saw evidence that Kyiv was eliminating traces of the military-biological program in Ukraine, allegedly supported and financed by the United States. 

Price countered, “this Russian disinformation is total nonsense,” and added that Russia possessed “a track record of accusing the West of the very crimes that Russia itself is perpetrating.” 

However, on Tuesday, Mar. 8, the US said that it was communicating with Ukraine to prevent invading Russian forces from causing any biological weapon attacks in the country.
