Igor Kirillov noted that in the period from 2014 to the present, more than 500 research projects have been implemented by this center in the countries of the post-Soviet space, in particular, in Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova and Azerbaijan.
It's worth reminding that biological laboratories in Ukraine were discovered during a military special operation. These scientific projects were financed from abroad, in particular from the USA. The scientists of these laboratories worked on the study of dangerous animal diseases and methods of their transmission, including through migratory birds. This was confirmed by US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Russia has asked the UN and the OSCE to launch an investigation into what these laboratories were doing in Ukraine.
