The US government warns that Russia may use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine.
By spreading false information, Moscow wants to pave the way for further escalation of Ukraine’s unnecessary war of aggression, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki warned on Twitter.
It is responding to accusations by Russia that Ukraine is developing nuclear or biological weapons. “This is an obvious ploy by Russia to justify an attack on Ukraine,” Psaki said.
“Now that Russia has made these false claims, and China appears to be backing the propaganda, we all need to keep an eye on whether Russia may be using chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine,” the spokeswoman said.
