(NewsGlobal.com)- Last week, former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard posted a video on Twitter calling for a ceasefire around the bioresearch labs located in Ukraine so that any deadly pathogens could be secured and destroyed.
There are 25+ US-funded biolabs in Ukraine which if breached would release & spread deadly pathogens to US/world. We must take action now to prevent disaster. US/Russia/Ukraine/NATO/UN/EU must implement a ceasefire now around these labs until they’re secured & pathogens destroyed pic.twitter.com/dhDTH5smIG

In response to Tulsi’s video, freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney took to Twitter to accuse her of “parroting false Russian propaganda.” Romney claimed Tulsi’s “treasonous lies” “may well cost lives.”
The Russian propaganda isn’t that these bio-labs exist.
Nobody disputes that these labs exist.
Last Friday, Reuters reported that the World Health Organization has advised Ukraine to destroy the high-threat pathogens being stored in what the WHO called “public health laboratories” to prevent the potential spread of disease among the population.
That is precisely what Tulsi Gabbard said in her video.
In an email to Reuters last week, the WHO said that it was collaborating with Ukrainian public health labs for several years to promote security practices that would help prevent “accidental or deliberate release of pathogens.”
Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland confirmed the existence of these labs to Senator Marco Rubio in a hearing last week.
Ukraine has "biological research facilities," says Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland, when asked by Sen Rubio if Ukraine has biological or chemical weapons, and says she's worried Russia may get them. But she says she's 100% sure if there's a biological attack, it's Russia. pic.twitter.com/uo3dHDMfAS

The Russian propaganda is that there are bio-weapons labs in Ukraine that are funded by the US Department of Defense and the United States and Ukraine plan to use these bio-weapons against the Ukrainian population and blame it on Russia.
Tulsi’s video says nothing about bio-weapons labs funded by the US Department of Defense. So either Mitt Romney doesn’t know what the “false Russian propaganda” is or he’s lying for retweets.
Tulsi responded to Mitt Romney in a lengthy Twitter thread that included all the evidence to back up what she said, including statements from the US government. She told Romney to either apologize for his false accusation or retire his seat in the Senate.
Then she released a video message directed to Romney reiterating all the evidence she presented in her thread and repeated her call that he either apologize or resign:
.@MittRomney and others say that I'm treasonous because I called for a ceasefire around the 25+ biolabs in Ukraine to prevent the breach of such facilities & escape of pathogens, and prevent more pandemics. Romney should resign. pic.twitter.com/nNhmM74xo1

Monday, Tulsi also appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to respond to Romney’s slander.
