The Russian government has accused Hunter Biden, the son of the POTUS, of funding the Pentagon's alleged biolabs in Ukraine.
The Head of Russia's Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops, Igor Kirillov, claims that Biden's investment group is connected to Rosemont Seneca, who have been accused of financing the biolab programme in Ukraine.
"Incoming materials have allowed us to trace the scheme of interaction between US government bodies and Ukraine's biolabs," Kirillov said.
He claims that Rosemont Seneca has a 'close relationship' with 'Pentagon bio laboratories around the world'.
Kirillov added: "In addition to the military department, the US Agency for International Development, the George Soros Foundation, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention are directly involved in its implementation.
"Scientific curation is carried out by leading research organisations, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, which develops nuclear weapons under the Manhattan Project."
According to Russian state news agency Sputnik, the fund allegedly has at least $2.4 billion in investment capital.
On Thursday, 24 May, the Russian Defense Ministry released a diagram titled 'Coordination of Biological Laboratories and Scientific Research Centers of Ukraine and the US', according to a translation from the Daily Beast.
The chart apparently showed an alleged connection between US businesses and agencies, some of which were linked to Hunter.
Well, in 2017, Sputnik was under FBI investigation as it was dubbed as spreading Russian propaganda, the US says.
The US Department of State believes that the publication 'influence[s] the public opinion and foreign policy in favour of the Kremlin's political goals'.
On one hand the ministry said it had found 31 Pentagon-funded biolabs allegedly conducting illegal research. On the other, the Pentagon insists the programme has 'improved Ukraine's biological safety, security and surveillance for both human and animal health'.
Although, Russia is seemingly not buying the claims and China has also jumped on the bandwagon.
China tweeted on 8 March: "'The US has 336 labs in 30 countries under its control, including 26 in Ukraine alone.
"It should give a full account of its biological military activities at home and abroad and subject itself to multilateral verification."
