This was reported by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.
According to Ukraine’s intelligence, Russia's chief state sanitary doctor Anna Popova signed a resolution "On additional measures to prevent cholera." It focuses on additional prevention measures in the regions bordering Ukraine: Bryansk, Kursk, Belgorod, Voronezh, Rostov regions, Krasnodar Krai, as well as the occupied Crimea.
At the same time, the heads of the territorial departments of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) were instructed to prepare laboratories for cholera research by May 15, strengthen control over trade facilities, and crowded sites to raise awareness among the population about disease prevention measures. In addition, by June 1, they must ensure that medical institutions be ready to implement anti-epidemic measures and calculate the amount of medication needed.
In this regard, the intelligence agency suggests that in late May or early June, Russia's leadership may resort to provocations in areas bordering Ukraine, to traditionally shift responsibility onto Kyiv, accusing Ukraine of "using biological weapons."
