Biological laboratories located in CIS countries are capable of producing biological weapons, the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Nikolay Patrushev wrote in his article “Russia’s security in the modern world” published on November 11 in the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.
According to the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, the USA has declared that Russia and China are the No. 1 security threats for the US. This is part of the USA’s updated national security strategy approved by Donald Trump. In this context, the USA is focusing on three areas in which to counter Russia and China: military-political, economic, and information-communications.
According to Patrushev, in the military-political sphere, the USA is withdrawing from treaties that restrict the arms race and raise the threshold for using nuclear weapons. In parallel, a “controlled chaos” strategy is being implemented and its technologies are being improved, which was vividly demonstrated during the Arab Spring and the liquidation of Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, Moammar el-Gadhafi’s regime in Libya, and the attempted overthrow of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
The USA utilizes the consequences of the liquidation of the authoritarian regimes in the Middle East as an excuse to deploy and reinforce its military forces in these regions.
The author believes that the USA and the West as a whole are becoming weaker as a global center of power. It is not clear what other steps Washington is ready to take in its attempts to retain its global leadership. In the context of political and military risks, a great concern is the activity of biological laboratories established by the Pentagon in CIS countries, which study infectious diseases. Under the guise of scientific research, biological weapons can be developed.
“Of particular concern are the Pentagon’s activities aimed at creating biological laboratories across the globe, first of all in CIS countries, which study infectious diseases and can be used to develop biological weapons. Therefore, it is increasingly important to closely coordinate with our partners, including by signing bilateral biosecurity agreements,” Patrushev wrote.
On November 5, 2019, the USA began the construction of two military bases in Syria, the Anadolu Turkish news agency reported. This construction was not approved by the official authorities of the country; therefore, it is occupation both de facto and according to international law.
Representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry and the Spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova previously said that the USA exports oil from Syria every day, having a monthly profit of $30 million.
