Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stunned the collective West today when he declared that Russia "Has information that the US built two additional bio warfare labs; one in Kiev, the other in Odessa. They have developed pathogens in those labs.
We will have to capture those cities to dismantle those labs to save the world from another pandemic."
This stunning statement makes clear Kiev and Odessa are now officially targets of the Russian special military operation (SMO).
It also makes clear that Russia flatly believes it was the US through its foreign biolabs, that caused the COVID-19 pandemic, and may also be to blame for the outbreak of Monkeypox.
Now that Russia's intention to take Kiev and Odessa is public and clear, one wonders if there will even be any country called "Ukraine" after this conflict is done?
