Putin's sinister Soviet-era lab where Russia may store devastating cache of bio-weapons


Vector has clearance to handle some of the world’s deadliest viruses, and has conducted research into avian flu, measles and rabies, according to the International Science and Technology Centre.

It says it now focuses on research into virology, genetic engineering and biotechnology.

The laboratory aims to develop “effective means and methods for the prevention, treatment and diagnosis of infectious diseases” and “the production of agents to counteract infectious pathogens”.
