OREANDA-NEWS The potential use of chemical weapons by Russia poses a threat, said U.S. President Joe Biden. This is stated in the material of Lenta.ru.

Earlier, Biden denied that the United States had biological and chemical weapons in Europe after Moscow urged Washington to complete their destruction. He considered Russia's accusations against Washington and Kiev to be evidence of Moscow's alleged plans to use both types of these weapons.

On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special operation in the Donbass. According to a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry, Russian troops strike only Ukrainian military facilities; civilians are not threatened. In response, many countries imposed sanctions against Russia.
