MINSK, July 6 Russian nuclear warheads intended to move to Belarus will be delivered to the republic before the end of the year, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Thursday answering journalists' questions.
“Points for the deployment of nuclear weapons were completely ready a month ago. Most of them were moved and are located in Belarus. By the end of the year, for sure, but I think much earlier, we will completely move the warheads that are intended for this,” Telegram quotes Lukashenka's words – channel “Pool of the first”.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow and Minsk agreed that, without violating international obligations, they would deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. Putin explained that Russia is not transferring its nuclear weapons to Belarus, but is doing what the US has been doing for decades. Putin said in June that in accordance with the Belarusian-Russian plans, the first nuclear charges were delivered to the territory of Belarus, and the plans will be fully implemented by the end of the year.
