“Russia is inventing false pretexts in an attempt to justify its own horrific actions in Ukraine.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki mentioned the claims have been “preposterous” and famous that “we’ve also seen Chinese officials echo these conspiracy theories.”

On March 6, Moscow’s international ministry tweeted that Russian forces discovered proof that Kyiv was erasing traces of the military-biological program in Ukraine, allegedly financed by the United States.
