Fact or False Flag? Moscow accuses the US of assisting Ukraine with illegal bio-weapons research

In the war between Russia and Ukraine, the most devastating weapon may prove to be propaganda, lobbed by both sides like virtual ICBMs. “False Flags” and “Fake News” have made distinguishing truth from fiction a challenging task for people just trying to make sense of it all.

The latest misinformation MOAB to be dropped is coming from Moscow, which has just claimed it has proof that the U.S. has aided Ukraine in the development of dangerous and illegal bio-weapons, and that Ukraine destroyed the evidence to protect it from falling into Russian hands.


According to Russia military spokesperson, Major General Igor Konashenkov, Russian intelligence has “received documents from Ukrainian bio-lab employees on the urgent destruction on 24 February of particularly dangerous pathogens of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera, and other lethal diseases. Some of them, in particular instructions by the Ukrainian Health Ministry to destroy pathogens and the certificates of destruction at bio-laboratories in Poltava and Kharkiv, we’re publishing right now.”

“It is clear that with the launch of the special military operation the Pentagon was seriously worried about disclosure of secret biological experiments in Ukraine,” Konashenkov continued.

If true, the program would fly in the face of the Biological Weapons Convention, enacted in 1975 and conveniently provide Russia with justification to invade Ukraine.

But is any of it true?

It’s impossible for us to know, and that is the problem.

Multiple stories out of Ukraine, from the now-infamous Snake Island border guards to the Ghost of Kiev to images of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy “fighting on the front lines” have been debunked as propaganda, and in the United States, coverups — real and imagined — of the NIH’s involvement with gain-of-function research in China’s Wuhan lab and a blatantly biased media have all served to blur the “news” lines and erode trust in government officials and so-called journalists.

Russian propaganda is well-known and effective, and while Konashenkov’s claims are being widely viewed on Russia media, it is hardly one the world should consume with out more than a few grains of salt.

Russia has made several seemingly outlandish claims recently, including one that involves a Ukrainian “dirty bomb” that would be potentially be detonated and blamed on Moscow. It was this claim that provided the reasoning behind Russia’s seizure of Ukraine nuclear power plants, such as Chernobyl and Zaporizhzhia.

One Russian military statement read, “Nationalists mined a reactor at an experimental nuclear system located at the [National Research Center of] Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology,” according to the Daily Mail.

And while Russia is warning of a Ukrainian “false flag,” U.S.  has repeatedly warned that Russia is planning a false flag.

On Feb. 11, the Washington Post reported that “multiple U.S. and European officials” reviewed new intelligence or were briefed on the intel and concluded “Russia is planning to stage an attack that it would falsely blame on Ukraine to justify invading the country.”

So, again, the question becomes, what is the world meant to believe?

Either Russia just thwarted biological and nuclear attacks, or it used the threat of them to savagely invade a neighboring sovereign nation.

Either Zelenskyy is a global hero or he is an actor playing the role of a lifetime to further a Globalist agenda.

And as for the U.S., given the complete lack of actual journalists and verifiable sources in the majority of mainstream media, your guess is as good as ours.
