Russia claims fund run by Biden’s son involved in financing biolabs in Ukraine

Moscow: The Russian Defence Ministry has claimed that investment fund Rosemont Seneca, currently managed by US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, funded the Pentagon’s military biological programme in Ukraine.

The fund has resources in the amount of at least $2.4 billion, Xinhua news agency quoted Igor Kirillov, chief of the Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Forces of the Russian Armed Forces, as saying.

The US Agency for International Development, the George Soros Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were also involved in the funding and development of these programs, he added.

“The incoming documents have allowed us to trace patterns of interaction between US government agencies and Ukrainian biological facilities,” he said.

The official added that the Defence Ministry has official documentation proving that 30 Ukrainian laboratories were involved in military biological activities.

According to Kirillov, 16,000 biological samples have been exported to the US and its allies from Ukraine.

For example, he said, 4,000 blood samples were taken from servicemen in Lviv, Kharkov, Odessa and Kiev to study the prevalence of antibodies to hantavirus.

“This large-scale screening of the natural immunity of the populations was probably carried out to select the most dangerous biological agents for populations in certain regions,” he explained.

He added that dangerous pathogens and their transporters were also exported from Ukraine.

The US government has not made any response to the claim yet.
