CIS is concerned about safety in the USA's biological laboratories in Ukraine and in Georgia

30.06.2020, Moscow.

Problems of public administration in Ukraine and Georgia have raised concerns about the safety of US Biolabs in these countries, said Andrey Novikov, Head of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Anti-Terrorism Center (ATC) said in an interview with TASS on June 29.

Biolaboratories located on the territory of countries bordering the CIS are subordinate to foreign countries and funds, which raises concerns for the CIS Anti-Terrorist Center. A cause of particular concern is the safety of US Biolabs, says Andrey Novikov.

“Under certain circumstances, there are risks of leakage of biomaterials,” said the head of the CIS ATC. “This is not terrorism, of course, but threats of negative consequences are possible, as in any high-tech process.”

The experience of the coronavirus pandemic “can provide insight into the consequences of loss or uncontrolled leakage of biomaterials that pose a threat to human life and health,” said Andrey Novikov.

Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Alexander Lukashevich expressed concern about this threat, as well as the conduct of experiments by foreign military biologists in the Russian border region on June 11. Lukashevich noted that there are more than a dozen biolaboratories operating on Ukrainian territory, which are funded by the Pentagon through a number of medical units.
