The United States and its NATO allies have significantly stepped up biological research in many countries around the world in recent years. This was stated by the First Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Yuri Averyanov in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to him, Washington develops individual work plans for each country based on the needs of national bio-programs, primarily for military purposes. Averyanov noted that this activity is implemented through the strict imposition of the programs "Global Partnership for the Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction" and the bilateral programs "Joint Biological Commitments" and "Joint Threat Reduction".
Earlier, the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, drew attention to the fact that new biological laboratories under the control of the United States are growing by leaps and bounds in the world. And by a strange coincidence-mostly at the Russian and Chinese borders. The Americans claim that these are research centers where they help local scientists develop new ways to combat dangerous diseases, but the authorities of the countries where these facilities are located do not have a real idea of what is happening.
