From this United States Department of Defense release:

Fact Sheet on WMD Threat Reduction Efforts with Ukraine, Russia and Other Former Soviet Union Countries
JUNE 9, 2022
The History and Accomplishments of U.S. Collaboration With the International Community to Reduce Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Threats in Ukraine, Russia, and Other Countries of the Former Soviet Union

This talks about the following:

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States, along with allies, partners, and international organizations, has led cooperative efforts to reduce legacy threats from nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons left in the Soviet Union’s successor states, including Russia.  These cooperative threat reduction efforts have helped advance global peace and security, and have supported the global consensus that the world is safer when we work together to increase transparency and reduce the risks from weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs.  

And their statement:

Ukraine has no nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons programs.  On March 11 and 18, 2022, United Nations (UN) High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu similarly stated that the UN is not aware of any biological weapons programs in Ukraine. Those comments were reiterated on May 13, 2022, by the UN Deputy High Representative for Disarmament Affairs. 

BUT...  Scroll down to almost the end of the report and you will find this little gem:

The United States has also worked collaboratively to improve Ukraine’s biological safety, security, and disease surveillance for both human and animal health, providing support to 46 peaceful Ukrainian laboratories, health facilities, and disease diagnostic sites over the last two decades.  The collaborative programs have focused on improving public health and agricultural safety measures at the nexus of nonproliferation. 

Forty six "peaceful Ukrainian laboratories"???  Seriously???  We are supposed to take this at face value and believe it.  We took over the Russian labs and dismantled them?  Any sensible reaction would have been to keep the research going if only to find out what the Russians had and to see what antidote and/or vaccines had been developed.

I was not born yesterday.  The idea that our government is lying to us is unsettling.  Shut up Prole.
