Previously, the Russian Ministry of Defense revealed that a company linked to high-risk biological research in Ukraine was founded by Hunter Biden, son of the US President Joe Biden.
The Russian Ministry of Defence has unveiled emails showing Hunter Biden's key role in funding danderous pathogen research in Ukraine.
The MoD has published correspondence between the US President’s son and employees of the US Department of Defense Threat Reduction Office, as well as Pentagon contractors in Ukraine.
The emails suggest that Hunter Biden was instrumental in raising funds for the American contractors, Black & Veatch and Metabiota, enabling the companies to engage in pathogen studies on the territory of Ukraine, stated the head of the Russian radiation, chemical and biological defense forces, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov.

It also follows from the correspondence that the goals of the Pentagon in Ukraine are far from scientific, underscored the Russian Defense Ministry.
Igor Kirillov recalled that earlier, in the course of Russia’s special operation to demilitarize and de-Nazify Ukraine, the military had seized documents that revealed an ongoing scheme of interaction between US government agencies, the current military-political leadership of the United States with Ukrainian biolabs.
In particular, the documentary evidence pointed to the involvement of an investment fund managed by Hunter Biden in financing high-risk biological research in Ukraine.

The Russian Defense Ministry has also presented the names of US officials involved in the creation of bioweapons components in Ukraine.
One of these was Robert Pope, at the time Director of the US Defense Department's Cooperative Threat Reduction Program at DTRA, which had sought to draw post-Soviet states into biological warfare, stated Major General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, at Thursday's briefing. Pope spearheaded the idea of ​​​​creating a "Central Depository of Especially Dangerous Microorganisms in Kiev," the general added.
Joanna Wintrall, the head of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) office at the US embassy in Kiev, led the coordination of military biological projects in Ukraine, Konashenkov said.
"It was under her direct supervision that experiments with deadly pathogens within the framework of projects UP-4, UP-6, UP-8 were implemented in Ukraine, including the viruses of anthrax, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), leptospirosis," he clarified.

Furthermore, Lance Lippencott, Program Director at the Ukrainian division of the company Black & Veatch, acted as the main contact for officials of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense and Health Ministry, said Konashenkov.
According to him, Black & Veatch has been working in the interests of the Pentagon since 2008 as an inherent part of projects studying potentially dangerous bioagents. Among these was the UP-1 project to study rickettsia and tick-borne encephalitis virus in arthropods in northwestern Ukraine.
In the course of the UP-2 project, the company introduced a system for remote monitoring of the incidence of tularemia and anthrax at Ukrainian biological facilities, said the Russian general, adding:
"Issues of biomonitoring and transfer of information were supervised by David Mustra, who is closely associated with another Pentagon contractor, Metabiota. Previously, he led military bio-projects in Ukraine and Eastern Europe as part of the Cooperative Threat Reduction Program," said the Russian Defence Ministry spokesman.
The MoD then revealed that Ukrainian engine maker Motor Sich asked the manufacturers of Turkish Bayraktar drones about the possibility of using the UAVs to spray deadly substances, which raises concerns in the light of the American military biological programme developed in Ukraine.
Igor Kirillov stressed that the document on this request is dated 15 December 2021, with Motor Sich wondering if it's possible to equip Bayraktar drones with systems and mechanisms for spraying aerosols with a capacity of more than 20 liters. He emphasised that such a UAV with a flight range of 300 kilometers could pose a real threat of contamination of the territory of Russia.
"In fact, we are talking about the development by the Kiev regime of technical means for the delivery and use of biological weapons with the possibility of their use against the Russian Federation," Kirillov concluded.
Russia's MoD has previously shed light on the fact that the US spent more than $200 million on the work of biological laboratories in Ukraine, which were a part of the American military biological programme and dealt, in particular, with plague and anthrax pathogens.
The freshly-provided damning correspondence comes as the Russian military has spent weeks shedding light on research into deadly pathogens being conducted in Ukrainian laboratories under the direction of the Pentagon and with US funding.
Initially, the MoD's reporting was dismissed by Washington as "Russian disinformation", with both officials and media since then corroborating many of the assertions.
According to Konashenkov, the Russian militarywould be continuing its analysis of documents received from employees of Ukraine-based biological laboratories, including the secret military biological activities being conducted in the country by the US.
