Gennadiy N. Lepeshkin: If there had been a war, the USSR would... never have used biological weapons.
Interviewer: Why do you say that?
Lepeshkin: Because... it's a very complicated type of weapon, and, as I've already said, waging war with biological weapons requires careful training of the troops so that they can use biological weapons to advantage. I'll say it again, people... infection, any infection can... it cannot tell the difference between its own side and the adversary, a fighter on its side or the adversary's fighter. The infection can and will affect the offensive side, if its people happen to be passing through infected territory.
