Adedeji Ebo, the UN’s Deputy High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, told the Security Council, “We know that the Russian Federation has made an official complaint… about claims of biological weapons programs in Ukraine.

He said, “As high representative Izumi Nakamitsu reminded the council in March and May of this year, the United Nations is not aware of any such biological weapons programs,” adding that the organization lacked the authority and expertise to carry out such an investigation.
