At the hearing, Victoria Nuland was asked whether Ukraine has bioweapons.
Ukraine has biological research facilities, which in fact we are now quite concerned Russian troops, Russian forces, may be seeking to gain control of. We are working with the Ukrainians on how they can prevent any of those research materials from falling into the hands of Russian forces should they approach”. -Nuland.
She is also 100% convinced that if there is a biological attack, it comes from Russia.
