On March 6, the Russian Defense Ministry published materials that biological weapons were being developed in Ukraine.
Since that date, the Russian media in every possible way promoted and promoted the topic of the development of biological weapons in Ukraine with the participation of the United States. Programs on Russian TV and publications in socially significant publications were full of headlines about the biological threat from Ukraine.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky also spoke very sharply about this:
We are sane people, I am the president of an adequate country, an adequate people. And the father of two children. And no one is developing any chemical weapons or any other weapons of mass destruction on our soil.
