Investigation of the causes of the appearance of coronavirus, the role of China and the World Health Organization (WHO) should be objective, it should be carried out under the auspices of the UN, told RIA Novosti member of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Elena Panina, commenting on the initiative of the US Senate committee.
Earlier, Ron Johnson, chairman of the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, told Politico that the committee would launch a large-scale investigation into the causes and spread of coronavirus, as well as the role of China and WHO.
According to Panina, most likely, the main task of the commission will be to “appoint” the perpetrators unilaterally.
“The causes of the pandemic should indeed be the subject of an investigation, but an objective and impartial investigation, best of all, under the auspices of the UN,” Panina said.
She believes that it is necessary to create an appropriate international commission with the participation of scientists, specialists, and possibly representatives of investigative structures. Moreover, according to Panina, the investigation should not be the prerogative of any particular country in order to avoid bias in approaches and conclusions.
