In the state Duma responded to the accusations of Kiev in the development of Russia’s chemical weapons
MOSCOW, may 27 — RIA Novosti. The accusations of Kiev in the development of Russia’s chemical and biological weapons for “hybrid war” are an attempt of the Ukrainian politicians to earn points. This was stated by first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on defense Alexander Sherin, in an interview with RT.
He noted that such statements show a “neglect of the situation” in Ukraine, because the government wants to appear to the people “popular and brave” without thinking of the responsibility which may be incurred over the allegations.
Sherin said that Russia should consider the possibility of filing criminal defamation cases at the international level.
“If there is a statement, then the person must either provide irrefutable evidence or to refute it and apologize. If none of this he can’t do, you have to initiate against him a criminal case”, — concluded the Deputy.
Earlier, the Chairman of the permanent delegation of Ukraine to the NATO parliamentary Assembly Iryna Friz has accused Russia of intensifying research aimed “to develop chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction”. Any evidence of these charges Ukrainian Ambassador did not provide, saying only analysis of public procurement, as well as scientific institutions of the Russian defense Ministry.
