The Untold Story of Bio-Labs in Ukraine

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

This is USA Today just a couple of days ago, quote fact check. Fact, false claim of U.S. bio labs in Ukraine tied to Russian disinformation campaign. China pushes conspiracy theory about U.S. biolabs in Ukraine. Newsweek, U.S. biological weapons in Russia separating the fact from fiction.
