On Monday, January 23, there was held a meeting of the Parliamentary Commission on Investigation into Circumstances Related to Creation of Biological Laboratories by the US Specialists on the Territory of Ukraine. Irina Yarovaya said that after the investigation the Commission would present its results to the BTWC working group
The Co-Chair of the Commission, Deputy Chairwoman of the State Duma Irina Yarovaya called interaction with the parliaments of other countries an important result and achievement of the work of the Commission.
She added that joint active efforts together with the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other ministries made it possible to form a convincing position, which was presented by the Russian delegation in Geneva at the 9th BTWC Conference: more than 120 countries supported Russia’s initiative to develop a legally binding protocol “while the USA completely and strongly denied that”.
Irina Yarovaya emphasized that such work was an unprecedented example of active participation of the Parliament in activities aimed at forming the position of the Russian Federation on the international platform, and additional global security measures were proposed for further iscussion. The work aimed at building confidence on the part of other countries, given the results achieved, should be continued, as said the Co-Chair of the Commission.
As the next meeting will be held on February 6, she proposed to study the report of the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) on military biological activities in Ukraine. During this period, the working groups of the Commission could prepare more detailed information containing analysis of this report, as said Irina Yarovaya.
According to her, “it will be right to invite and hear the views” of those scientists and compare with the materials of the parliamentary investigation. In addition, such communication would become “an indicator whether those people who are implementing a secret military biological project in Ukraine and other countries of the world are ready for an open and public dialogue or not.”
Irina Yarovaya added that in addition to the interest of colleagues from other parliaments, others were scared to discuss those issues in public. They were influenced by overwhelming role of the US intelligence services in relation to sovereign states, making them completely dependent, as she said.
Irina Yarovaya noted the importance of such dialogue: “The most dangerous research that the US is conducting to increase the irreversible consequences of COVID-19 and boasting of new achievements that 80–90% of deaths will be caused by a new version of COVID, which they had developed in their laboratories — this is all that the world already cannot leave without response.
“Interest in anthrax, the Zika virus, tularemia, the Ebola virus, and it is quite strange, the US showed such interest on the territory of Ukraine, and the samples that were seized there, and the tests that were taken from the Ukrainian military officers, had proved that they had come in contacts with dangerous viruses and pathogens, and that is not indirect, but real direct evidence that Ukraine is one of the testbeds of the military biological project for the production of biological weapons, which is being implemented by the Pentagon,” stressed Irina Yarovaya.
The Parliamentary Commission of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Investigation into the Circumstances Related to Creation of Biological Laboratories by the US Specialists on the territory of Ukraine was initiated by the State Duma. The Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin had repeatedly stressed the need to investigate the activities of US biological laboratories.
The Parliamentary Commission consists of 14 members of the State Duma and 14 senators. The Deputy Chairwoman of the State Duma Irina Yarovaya and Deputy Speaker of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev are the Co-Chairs of the Commission.
