Tucker Carlson: Nuland Literally Confirmed Russian Data on US Biolabs Is ‘Totally & Completely True’

The US under secretary of state told the Senate during a recent hearing that there are concerns about Russia taking over biological research laboratories in Ukraine. The purpose of this and other Pentagon-funded biological research in Ukraine was to create a mechanism for the covert spread of deadly pathogens, the Russian military says.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on Thursday that the US government is lying about the secret bio laboratories in Ukraine, indirectly confirming that it was sponsoring what are said to be “deadly” biological weapons.
He referred to recent remarks made by Victoria Nuland during her testimony before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Ukraine on Tuesday.
When asked whether the Ukrainian authorities have biological weapons at their disposal, she noted that “Ukraine has biological research facilities” and Washington is “quite concerned” that research materials may fall into the hands of Russian troops.

Carlson concluded that “under oath in an open committee hearing, Toria Nuland just confirmed that the Russian disinformation they’ve been telling us for days is a lie and a conspiracy theory and crazy and immoral to believe is, in fact, totally and completely true”.

“You don’t hear things like that every day in Washington. Talk about a showstopper and a dozen questions instantly jump to mind”, he said. “What exactly are they doing in these secret Ukrainian bio labs? Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe. It’s hardly a hotbed of biomedical research”.
Carlson assumed “these weren’t pharmaceutical labs, probably not developing new leukemia drugs”.

“From your answer, Toria Nuland, we would assume because you all but said it, that there’s a military application to this research, that they were working on bioweapons. Again, your answer suggests that”, he said.

Documentation obtained from laboratories in Ukraine on 24 February showed that dangerous pathogens – including anthrax, cholera, and the plague – had been destroyed in what could be a cover up of activities in violation of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC), Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, there were about 30 laboratories on the territory of Ukraine fulfilling orders from the US Department of Defence. The Russian military cited documents it had acquired, published on 9 March, which show that the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, Viktor Lyashko, ordered laboratories to eradicate pathogenic samples ahead of the introduction of martial law in the country.
The Russian military also revealed that “the available documents confirm numerous cases of the transfer of biological samples of Ukrainian citizens abroad”, which was seen as a possibility that the US was “creating bioagents that can selectively affect various ethnic groups of the population”. As such, the Ukrainian Ministry of Health reportedly sent 350 cryocontainers with blood serum samples to Australia and around 1,000 to Germany.
