Vyacheslav Victorovich The Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the eighth convocation. Elected in single mandate constituency № 163 (Saratov constituency - Saratov Oblast) recalled that in November 2022, leaders of the CSTO member states at the meeting of the Collective Security Council made an important decision on the joint formation of radiation, chemical and biological protection.
“I would like to recall that Russian specialists had revealed facts of military biological activities of the US specialists on the territory of Ukraine,” stressed Vyacheslav Volodin. In addition, it had been confirmed that the USA had violated the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development and Stockpiling of Chemical Weapons.
“Washington and its allies, as expected, blocked the adoption by the UN Security Council of a resolution developed by our country on creation of a commission to investigate these crimes. It is obvious that they have something to hide,” said the Chairman of the State Duma and added that Washington's military biological activities posed a threat to all mankind.
“Colleagues, it is important to work together to develop effective measures to ensure the safety of our citizens. Today we appealed to foreign parliaments with a proposal to adopt a joint statement on the inadmissibility of development of biological and toxin weapons. If we adopt such a decision, it will be extremely important for other countries as well,” Vyacheslav Volodin added.
Earlier, both chambers of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation supported the appeal “To the parliaments of the countries of the world on the need to strengthen the BTWC regime”. The document was adopted on the initiative of the Parliamentary Commission on Investigation into Circumstances Related to the Creation of Biological Laboratories by the US Specialists on the Territory of Ukraine. The Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin had repeatedly emphasized the need to investigate the activities of US biological laboratories. The Commission consists of 14 members of the State Duma and 14 senators.
