Russia asks the UN Security Council to investigate the US for developing biological weapons in Ukraine

The UN alleges, according to TASS, that it does not have the capacity to carry out an investigation of these characteristics

MADRID, 27 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) -

Russia has asked the United Nations Security Council to investigate the involvement of the United States in the alleged development of biological weapons in Ukraine, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.

"Russia had no choice but to submit a complaint to the president of the UN Security Council to request the launch of an international investigation (on biological weapons), the Russian side explained, as reported by the TASS news agency.

Moscow has emphasized that it seeks to exercise its legal rights under the provisions of International Law enshrined in the UN Charter and the Biological Weapons Convention, which is a fundamental legally binding instrument in the field of security guarantees against the threat of biological weapons.

Likewise, Russia has argued that neither Washington nor kyiv were able to give "clear answers" to the questions posed in the framework of bilateral consultations mediated by a support group on the implementation of the Convention, as well as in another consultation meeting that was held in September in Geneva.

"Instead of a professional dialogue, Western countries with the Ukrainians focused on propaganda, as a result of which our detailed claims remained unresolved and required additional steps to resolve," the Russian side argued.

After that, Adebey Ebo, Izumi Nakamitsu's deputy, who is the UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, recalled that the United Nations "has neither the mandate nor the technical capacity to investigate Russia's accusations", as has been cited by TASS.

The United Nations already assured last May that it was not aware of any tests or programs with this type of weapon being carried out on Ukrainian territory after Russia alleged the existence of such weapons.

The accusations were also repeated in March, when Moscow called for a meeting before the UN Security Council to discuss alleged US biological or chemical weapons programs in Ukraine.

The request for this meeting came after the US government denied the "false information" allegedly released by Russia about these US biological and chemical weapons laboratories in the country.
