Eight bio-laboratories were created in Ukraine in the cooperation with the U.S. army, the Ukrayinskie Novosti newspaper informed on May 26.
The publication published a document of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, which lists the projects implemented in the cooperation with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency of the US Department of Defense.
The U.S. Agency helped the Ukrainian authorities to build bio-laboratories from scratch or modernize the existing ones.
The document mentions the laboratories, to which assistance was provided. It is in particular the Research Institute of Epidemiology and Hygiene (Lvov), the Ukrainian Research Institute for Plague Control (Odessa), as well as several other laboratories “that can be used in the development of biological weapons”.
Such cooperation between Ukraine and the United States dates back to 2005, when a joint programme was launched.
Earlier, one of the leaders of the Ukrainian opposition Viktor Medvedchuk said that it is necessary to stop the illegal activity of US military bio-laboratories in Ukraine. Moreover, the politician called to complete the investigation of their activity and to punish those being responsible guilty
