This, after Putin accused The White House of secretly creating chemical or biological weapons inside Ukraine labs.
Russia made the claims this week, in an attempt to further justify their unprovoked invasion and deadly force.
However, the Biden Administration says Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is spreading false allegations in order to distract Russia’s real purpose “which is to escalate the bombings across Ukraine.” The Russian-Ukraine war has been raging on for fifteen days.
U.S. Press Secretary Jen Psaki debunked Russia’s claims as ‘preposterous propaganda’ tweeting “Now that Russia has made these false claims, and China has seemingly endorsed this propaganda, we should all be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine, or to create a false flag operation using them.”
This is preposterous. It’s the kind of disinformation operation we’ve seen repeatedly from the Russians over the years in Ukraine and in other countries, which have been debunked, and an example of the types of false pretexts we have been warning the Russians would invent.

More fears have set in for Ukraine to prepare for the worst.
Yesterday, Ukraine accused Russia of sinking to a new low after the air-strike bombing of a maternity hospital in the southern port city of Mariupol. So far, three people including a child have been killed. Staff and patients are among the injured.
The international community for years suggested that Russia has used chemical weapons before in carrying out assassination attempts against Putin’s political enemies – opposition activist Alexey Navalny and former spy Sergei Skripal. Russia also supports the Assad government in Syria, which has used chemical weapons against its people in a decade-long civil war.
Russia has a long history of accusing the U.S. of developing biological weapons.
The accusations between Russia and the United States have been raging on for decades. In the 1980s, Russian intelligence spread conspiracy theories that the U.S. created HIV in a lab.
Now, Western Intelligence officials fear Putin will ignore U.S. President Biden’s sanctions and could go even further until he achieves complete domination of Ukraine. Ukrainian civilians continue to flee their country, while its defiant army battle Russian forces.
