Russia’s years-long campaign about ‘biolabs’ and what it considers nefarious activities significantly escalated in 2022. It led to a formal consultative meeting under Article V of the 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) in September 2022 and to several rounds of discussions in the United Nations Security Council, culminating in an unprecedented request from Russia in October 2022 for an investigation into ‘military biological activities in Ukraine’. Security Council members did not find Russia’s evidence convincing and voted against Russia’s proposal.
