Claims that Kiev gave out counterfeit money that was infected with tuberculosis to children in a village in the Lugansk People’s Republic in 2020 have come out of Moscow.
Moscow says Ukraine allowed the Pentagon (USA) to carry out human experiments at Kharkov’s psychiatric wards.
Chief of Russia’s Radioactive, Chemical, and Biological Protection Forces, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov alleged that Russian forces had obtained evidence pointing to Kiev having attempted to infect residents of the Slavyanoserbsk district of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) with a highly pathogenic strain of tuberculosis in 2020. The information was discussed during a briefing on the findings of the Russian Defense Ministry’s investigation into the alleged US-funded bioweapon labs in Ukraine.
“Leaflets made in the form of counterfeit banknotes were infected with the causative agent of tuberculosis and distributed among minors in the village of Stepovoe, “Kirillov said. He also suggested that the organisers of this crime considered the behaviour of children, which includes “putting things in their mouth” and handling food without washing their hands.
The results of the bacteriological studies confirmed the resistance of the isolated bacteria found on the leaflets to first and second-line anti-TB medications, which meant that the disease caused by them was much more difficult and expensive to treat, according to Kirillov.
He quoted the conclusion of the Lugansk Republican Sanitary and Epidemiological station, which stated that “the infection of the banknotes was most likely artificial since the material contains extremely dangerous strains of the pathogen in a concentration that can ensure infection and the development of the tuberculosis process.”
According to Kirillov, the LPR TB dispensary also noted signs of “deliberate, man-made contamination of leaflets with biomaterials of high pathogenicity.”
It has also been claimed by Russian officials that the Pentagon had been allegedly conducting “inhumane” experiments on the patients of at least two psychiatric institutions in Kharkov. Kirillov said that “The main category of experimental subjects was a group of male, highly physically exhausted patients aged between 40 – 60 years.”
He then noted that the experiments were directly run by foreign specialists that had arrived in Ukraine through third-party nations to conceal the US’ involvement. The specialists were abruptly evacuated from the country earlier this year, not long before the Russian military operation commenced.
He said, “In January 2022, the foreign citizens who conducted the experiments were urgently evacuated, and the equipment and drugs they used were taken to the western regions of Ukraine.”
According to an article on RT, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin suggested last week, that the service had, “clearly identified” multiple Americans involved in the military biological research in Ukraine, including employees from the Pentagon and companies who are closely associated with the US Military.
Russian estimates suggest Washington poured more than $224 million into biological research in the country between 2005 and early 2022, according to Bastrykin.
The existence of “biological research facilities” in Ukraine has been confirmed by US officials. However, Washington has been said to only have provided what they referred to as “assistance” for efforts that did not involve the creation of bioweapons.
