Speaking before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on 8 March 2022, US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland stated that the US is working with Ukrainian biological research labs. Documents dating back to 2012 seem to indicate that the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency funded bioresearch in Ukraine[1].

Exclusive documents leaked in the media on 8 March 2022 show deleted web articles revealing that Former President Barack Obama spearheaded an agreement leading to the construction of biological labs handling ‘especially dangerous pathogens’ in Ukraine[2].
