Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that Germany, along with the United States, had been conducting intensive military-biological activities in Ukraine for many years. This is pushing Berlin “to be more active than other EU countries in trying to attribute” Russia’s plans to use biological and chemical weapons in Ukraine.
“According to confirmed information, the German side closely coordinated its work in the field of biological security with the American allies, who created a network of at least 30 biological laboratories in Ukraine, where, among other things, dangerous research studies were carried out,” Zakharova said.
“We call on German officials to immediately stop spreading false fabrications about our country’s alleged intention to use weapons prohibited by international law within the framework of the Russian Armed Forces,” she stressed.
“Such statements can “only spur Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalions to commit terrible provocations, the moral responsibility for the tragic consequences of which will also fall on Berlin,” Zakharova expressed confidence.
