The Russian Defense Department has presented documents allegedly proving US-Ukranian bio-research was conducted with the Ukrainian military. Gateway Pundit has the receipts.

The Pentagon acknowledges that the US has spent $200 million on programs in 46 biolabs in Ukraine since launched by young Senator Barack Obama in 2005.

US officials have so far insisted the funding went solely to the Ukrainian Ministry of Health for civilian purposes. Allegedly the program was designed to dispose of Soviet-era bioweapons materials. This does not explain why it is necessary to open dozens of new biolabs costing $200 million.

“There are no U.S. military-run labs in Ukraine,” said Andy Weber, a member of the Arms Control Association Board of Directors and a former Assistant Secretary of Defense for nuclear, chemical, and biological defense programs, according to PolitiFact. “Rather, the U.S. Department of Defense Cooperative Threat Reduction Program has provided technical support to the Ukrainian Ministry of Health since 2005 to improve public health laboratories, whose mission is analogous to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” Weber said, according to PolitiFact.

“There are no Ukrainian biological weapons laboratories supported by the United States — not near Russia’s border or anywhere”, stated U.S. Representative to the United Nations  Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Friday, March 18.

Speaking to the UN Security Council on Friday, Russian representative Vassily Nebenzia asserted “documents signed by the head of the DTRA (Defense Threat Reduction Agency) office at the US Embassy in Kiev Joanna Wintrol” prove the Pentagon’s DTRA was working directly with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense on bioresearch (Gateway reported).

Today, Gateway Pundit presents these documents.

On February 20, 2018, Kiev Defense Threat Reduction Office Chief Joanna Wintrol wrote to Dr. Serhii Lytovka in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine:

 “The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has been designated as an additional Executive Agent for the implementation of the Agreement Between the Department of Defense of the United States of America and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine Concerning Cooperation in the Area of Prevention of Proliferation of Technology, Pathogens and Expertise that could be Used during the Development of Biological Weapons, dated August 29, 2005.

I kindly request that you provide a list of facilities and laboratories from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine which will participate in the implementation of the international technical assistance program “Cooperative Biological Engagement Program”.


The project is executed by Black & Veatch Special Projects Corp. The Donor of the project – the U.S. Department of Defense/ Defense Threat Reduction Agency.”

As Gateway Pundit reported, Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca invested in a firm called Metabiota, which was a subcontractor to Black & Veatch’s work with DTRA.

The DTRA cooperation with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine dates back at least to an October 2017 “reboot”:
