Rubio warns Putin could jump to the use of bioweapons in Ukraine

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin could transition his attack on Ukraine over to using biological weapons to win the war, according to Breitbart News.

Rubio made his comments during an appearance this week on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” where he sounded the alarm about the potential for a biological weapon.

According to Rubio, Putin would likely try his attack “in a way that makes it look like someone else did it.”

The Florida lawmaker went on to explain that he believes that if the Russian authoritarian chooses to use a bio-weapon he will likely try to “stage” a chemical weapon attack.

Rubio said he believes that the attack will be made to look like it’s actually executed by Ukraine or NATO, likely using tactics like the chemical weapons used in the Middle East.

“I think the likeliest thing you are going to see from Putin is trying to use chemical, or biological weapons for that matter, but doing it in a way that makes it look like someone else did it,” Rubio outlined.

“And so, that’s his history. For example, when chemical weapons were deployed in Syria, clearly, Assad was behind it, but he spent weeks sort of building up this notion that somehow the rebels and the opposition to Assad were the ones that were going to use chemical weapons and did.”

“And so, my feeling is that that’s exactly the kind of thing he would try to do here,” he added. “I don’t think he would himself admit that he’s using these chemical weapons. I think he would want to blame that on Ukraine or NATO and say that it was them who did it.”
