Moscow expresses concern over the creation of the military Department of the USA in Georgia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan biolaboratories high degree of protection, which are able to be intended for the production of biological weapons, said a Russian Source.
"Russia can not react to the fact that the United States war Department, essentially, on our border, builds bioticslab high degree of protection, and which among them have the ability to be designed for the production of biological weapons ", – the Source said RIA "Novosti" at the meeting of experts of States parties to the Convention on the prohibition of the development, production and stockpiling of bacteriological (biological) and toxin weapons and on their elimination (BTWC).
according to the Russian authorities, similar biological laboratories of the Ministry of defense of the USA are in Georgia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. While these countries themselves do not have the proper level of expertise in the field of biotechnology, to somehow make sure that their territory or from their territory " by the U.S. military technicians will not conduct operations that are contrary to the BWC "." Such laboratories are being built for years, they require significant capital investment and higher levels of technology. Country, able to build Such a laboratory can be counted on fingers and naturally we are very close dialogue, as well as among them with our Kazakh partners, in regard to what really happens in this context, in their relations with the US defense Department", - has added the head of the Department. The source added that the Russian Federation directly expresses his concerns to American partners, but not getting answers and for this reason it is justified from an international legal point of view requires discussion of these issues within the framework of the agreement on the prohibition of biological weapons." we have suspicions that the US shares have the opportunity in the end to go in violation of the Convention on the prohibition of the development, production and stockpiling of biological and toxin weapons and on their elimination", - has noticed it. Remember, in April, the Russian foreign Ministry said that Moscow supports the strengthening of the Convention on the prohibition of biological and toxin weapons and is ready to cooperate in this area with all stakeholders. The BTWC was opened for signature in 1972, became the first international Treaty to ban an entire class of weapons of mass destruction. The accession to the BTWC into force on 26 March 1975 Marked an important step forward in the multilateral disarmament. The Convention is the main legally binding instrument prohibiting biological weapons.
