Lavrov calls Pentagon's participation in lab experiments in Ukraine outrageous

ANTALYA. March 10 (Interfax) - The U.S. participation in experiments in bio laboratories in Ukraine is outrageous, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"The facts that the Pentagon is doing in the biological laboratories created with U.S. money, using the Ukrainian territory for experimenting on pathogens, are totally outrageous," Lavrov said at a press conference following talks with the Ukrainian and Turkish foreign ministers.

Such pathogens could have been used for creating biological weapons in the future, he said.

"The Americans were keeping this work deeply secret. There is definitely no getting away from it," the minister said.
