Russia has documented evidence that the US State Department has been participating in the implementation of the Biosecurity Enhancement Program since 2016, Kirillov told the briefing.
According to the general, the data shows that Washington has been actively taking part in bioresearch in other countries, striving to use third-party performers to conceal the customers and goals of the ongoing research.
The US is especially interested in conducting biological research in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Africa, while Ukraine has been designated as a separate region for bioprograms, Kirillov stressed.
"Special attention is given to countries in the Middle East (Iraq, Yemen, Jordan), South-East Asia (Indonesia, the Philippines) and Africa (Kenya, Morocco, Uganda). Mention is made of President Obama's role in promoting the Department of State's proposed biological programs," he noted.
Earlier, the deputy head of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, believes that the world may see the emergence of new viruses "of not only natural but also of artificial origin."
He also recalled Russia’s concerns about the US biomilitary activity in the post-Soviet space.
Medvedev stressed that the Pentagon had set up dozens of specialized biolabs and centers around Russia.
