Washington(AFP) – The US dismissed Russian accusations that it supports a bioweapons programme in Ukraine on Wednesday, saying the statements were a warning that Moscow may soon deploy the weapons.

In a statement, State Department spokesman Ned Price stated, “The Kremlin is peddling brazen claims that the US and Ukraine are undertaking chemical and biological weapons activity in Ukraine.”

“Russia is fabricating pretexts in order to excuse its heinous actions in Ukraine.”

The assertions are “preposterous,” according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who adds that “we’ve also heard Chinese officials regurgitate similar conspiracy theories.”
