The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has confirmed the information about location of the American biology labs on the territory of Ukraine. The press department of the diplomatic office said so in a statement on April 23.
"Here in Ukraine, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Biological Threat Reduction Program works with the Ukrainian Government to consolidate and secure pathogens and toxins of security concern in Ukrainian government facilities, while allowing for peaceful research and vaccine development. We also work with our Ukrainian partners to ensure Ukraine can detect and report outbreaks caused by dangerous pathogens before they pose security or stability threats", reads the message.
Earlier, Chairman of the Political Council of Oppostion Platform - For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk turned to the Ukrainian government, asking to provide information about the work of 15 U.S. military scientific labs. According to Medvedchuk, the labs perform illegal activity, which threatens lives and health of Ukrainian citizens. He also claimed that there's an international organization, the Scientific and Technical Centre in Ukraine, funded by the U.S. government. Its workers enjoy the diplomatic immunity.
