Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed deep concern about biological warfare activities of the United States near the Russian borders.

The Department of Information and Press of the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday, saying military biological activity of the US Ministry of Defense near Russia’s borders “causes our serious concern.”

The statement further said, “There is no documentary confirmation that all facilities, which are under jurisdiction or control of the United States and which were earlier involved in the military biological programs, are destroyed or reoriented for peaceful purposes under Article 2 of the Convention of the Prohibition of Biological and Toxin Weapons.”

The statement described as “groundless” a US statements over Russia’s violation of several country’s commitments in the control over weapons, non-proliferation and disarmament.

“As in the past few years, the United States continues to make unfounded statements that Russia allegedly violates the country’s commitments under several international treaties,” the statement said in reaction to a report by the US State Department on July 12.

The Russia fulfills consistently the requirements under the convention and regularly reports its progress in the destruction of the country’s stocks of chemical weapons to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the statement said.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, so far, Moscow has destroyed about 74 percent of its chemical weapons.

“This report produces an impression that the US despite the changes that took place in the world continue to stay in the propagandistic grips of the Cold War,” the statement concluded.
