Newsline: Russia escalates diplomatic war against US

Russia has accused the United States of helping Ukraine develop nuclear weapons in an escalation in the diplomatic war but has not provided any proof. Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of Russia’s Security Council, claimed US advisors were helping Kyiv develop biological and nuclear weapons, potentially raising the risk of nuclear war, according to state-run news organisation Ria Novosti. (https://news.yahoo.com/russia-ukraine-united-states-nuclear-weapons-180245345.html) Patrushev did not provide any evidence to back up his comment. The US has denied previous Russian accusations that Washington is operating biowarfare labs in Ukraine, calling the claims “laughable” and suggesting Moscow may be laying the groundwork to use a chemical or biological weapon.
