Kremlin ridiculed over claims America is planning to drop disease ridden insects from drones

Paranoid Russian politicians have publicly discussed a supposed ‘Pentagon project’ to drop infected mosquitoes on their troops.

The panicky politicians kept a straight face as they debated an appropriate response to the ‘Allied Insects’ project, in which America is alleged to have enlisted the unlikely support of insects.


A clip of Irina Yarovaya, Kremlin MP and Head of the Parliamentary Committee for Security, probing officials has been widely circulated on social media.

In the video, Yarovaya says: “I will name just one eloquent Pentagon project, called Allied Insects, which aims to solve the problem of transferring genetically engineered viruses and pathogens to such insects.”

A nervy Yarovaya asks the experts: “How do you assess these risks and threats? How are we prepared?”

Stressing the importance of the subject, Yarovaya adds: “We are waiting for specific proposals from you in order to develop additional systemic solutions to ensure the economic security of our country.”

This outlandish declaration comes following scaremongering from Igor Kirillov, head of Russian Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Troops.

In an extraordinary accusation last month, the senior Kremlin official alleged that the US had destroyed the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine as part of a mosquito masterplan.

Kirillov said: “The flooding of Kherson region planned by the Kyiv regime can complicate the situation, including with regard to arbovirus infections.

“After a drop in the water level, it is possible to form foci of diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, primarily West Nile fever.

“The high technical level of US preparedness for the use of infected vectors is evidenced by a patent for a drone designed to spread infected mosquitoes in the air.”

He added: “In accordance with the description, the drone must deliver a container with insects to a given area and release them.

"When bitten, mosquitoes can infect military personnel with a dangerous infection, such as malaria.”

President Zelensky replied to the situation on Twitter: “Everyone who chooses the path of evil destroys himself.

“For a long time, Russia used propaganda to mask its weakness and the stupidity of its government. And now there is so much chaos that no lie can hide it.”

The Russian ruble sunk to a 15-month low against the US dollar as Russia was rocked by instability brought about by Wagner's march on Moscow.

Putin managed to quell Prigozhin’s potential onslaught with a deal brokered by Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko.

Meanwhile, blunders are being made on the other side of the Atlantic, as US President Joe Biden claimed Putin was “losing the war in Iraq.”
