US Intentions to Test Nuclear Bombs

Andrey Belousov, Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN and International Organizations in Geneva, said that the US participation in preserving the nuclear test site in Nevada shows that they do not intend to stop testing nuclear bombs, despite the unanimous vote on the issue of a nuclear test site in Nevada. Resolution of the UN General Assembly on this matter.

He added: “We would like to draw attention to the fact that the United States is working to improve and maintain the infrastructure of the nuclear test site in Nevada and maintain it in a state of full operational readiness, and from here this approach can be considered direct evidence of Washington’s intentions.”

He noted that “the United States does not hide the development of new types of nuclear warheads, the effectiveness of which will sooner or later have to be tested in practical tests.”

Belousov emphasized that the unanimous adoption of UN General Assembly Resolution No. 64/35 of 2009 provides that all countries of the world share the need for a complete renunciation of nuclear tests, which is the most important condition for achieving the ultimate goal of creating a world free of nuclear weapons.

US Developing Biological Weapons

Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexei Shevtsov said on Monday that the United States is developing biological weapons to target specific ethnic groups.

Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev previously confirmed that Russia, in cooperation with other countries, will continue to investigate the activities of American biological laboratories.

This came in response to a Pentagon-released report on US biological defense, which said that research by some countries, including Russia and China, in the field of biological weapons “poses a threat to American national security.”

In its report, the Pentagon called China “the biggest challenge” it faces, as well as talking about the “great danger” from Russia and calling for “risk vigilance” from North Korea, Iran, and extremist organizations.

It is noteworthy that the Russian parliamentary committee to investigate the activities of American biological laboratories in Ukraine presented its report in April last year, which was published at the end of a year of work. The report points out that the US biological programs have a dual purpose and can be used for military purposes as well.
