Russia has launched another attack on the United States on the bio-weapons front, as it now claims that the fund of US President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is linked to financing bio-activities in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden had established the Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company in 2013 through which the president’s son has been at the center of controversy in the past.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the company is linked to the financing of American projects that help Ukraine in the alleged manufacture of biological weapons.
Russia unsure of US aid to Ukraine
For nearly two weeks, the United States has been warning Ukraine of Russia’s intention to use biological weapons. Moscow, in turn, accused the United States of operating biological laboratories in Kyiv, however, both sides rejected reports presented by the other. In the past, Russia has even mocked US media reports in which experts “feared” that Putin was considering unleashing such threats. In a tweet posted by the Russian Embassy in the UK, Moscow said that is what Russia has also been saying all along, that bio-laboratories exist and biological weapons have been developed in Ukraine.
So… it turns out that bio-labs do exist and bio-weapons have been developed there. Isn’t that what we’ve been saying from the start? pic.twitter.com/4odtwNWcrR

In early March, Moscow told the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) that it had documents on a “biological weapons network” in Ukraine and that Russia had credible evidence to back up its claims. He even said that the manufacture of such weapons was financed by the United States. “Ukraine agreed to carry out experimental biological laboratories which are very dangerous for the world. These experiments posed potential risks for the whole country. I don’t know why kyiv implemented these experiments,” said the Russia.
Russia calls on the United States to destroy its stockpile of chemical weapons
Turning its back on the United States, Russia on March 23 called on the United States to reactivate its stockpile of chemical weapons that it still possesses. In a tweet posted on Wednesday, the Russian Embassy in the United States said that the latter still possesses 3% of chemical weapons and is deliberately delaying their destruction. The declaration was a response to Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Bonnie Jenkins, who called on Russia to declare all of its chemical weapons.
In 2⃣0⃣1⃣7⃣, Russia eliminated its stockpile of chemical weapons. This fact was attested by the @OPCW. 🇺🇸 in turn deliberately delayed the destruction of the remaining 3% of #CW, which still poses a serious threat to the world. We call on the #WE liquidate all its #CW. https://t.co/b2UtC9VAk4 pic.twitter.com/ytZP6JWqFL

As I said today, we continue to condemn Russia’s premeditated, unprovoked and unjust invasion of Ukraine. We call on Russia to stop its false claims, respect international standards and declare all chemical weapons.
