“These claims are pure fabrications”
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield criticizes Russia for convening a UN Security Council meeting “for the sole purpose of spreading disinformation.”
The US and its Western allies have dismissed Russia’s claims that banned biological weapons activities are taking place in Ukraine with American support, calling the allegation a “pure fabrication.”
“So, while I believe this meeting is a colossal waste of time — and we should decide just how much of our time we allow Russia to waste — I am glad this Council has the chance to see Russia’s disinformation campaign for what it is: An attempt to distract from the atrocities Russian forces are carrying out in Ukraine and a desperate tactic to justify an unjustifiable war,” said Linda Thomas-Greenfield.
