UNSC to hold emergency meeting at Russia's request

United Nations: The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will hold an emergency meeting on Friday at the request of the Russian government after Moscow claimed the US was funding the development of biological weapons in Ukraine’s laboratories.

The meeting comes after Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky requested the world body to convene an emergency meeting to discuss US military biological activities in the region of Ukraine.

Russia has claimed that recently obtained documents showed that biological weapons were made in Ukrainian laboratories with funding from the US Department of Defense. However, the ministry did not provide any evidence to support the claim.

Russia has also said that Lviv, under the US-led military biological program, will eat*++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++* And in Poltava more than 30 laboratories are working with agents.

Meanwhile, the US rejected the allegations, with White House press secretary Jen Psaki saying in a tweet on Wednesday that it has been repeatedly denied by Russians in Ukraine and other countries over the years.

CIA Director William Burns testified to the US Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that Russia’s allegations were false.

In his latest video address on Friday, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said no chemical or other weapons of mass destruction had been developed in his country.

He further said, I am the President of a sufficient nation, a sufficient nation and the father of two children. No chemical or other weapons of mass destruction have been developed on my land.

“The whole world knows that if Russia does something like this against us, it will get the answer of the harshest sanctions,” he said.
