US Planned to Create Biological Lab of Lugar Type in Crimea - Russia's Watchdog


"Today, there are 11 US laboratories in Ukraine, and they have been modernized at the expense of the Pentagon. It was expected to construct such a laboratory in Simferopol as well," Popova said at a at briefing in Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

Popova added that in 2014, after Crimea's reunification with Russia and the formation of the health watchdog's service on the Peninsula, 104 pools of ectoparasites, 46 samples of internal organs of rodents and 105 samples of human blood serum were found on the territory of the former Soviet anti-plague station in Simferopol, which were ready to be dispatched. That anti-plague station became a hub for collecting material and sending it to Europe, she noted.
