Lukashenko does not rule out deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus

The President of Belarus does not rule out a possibility of deploying Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus – as he told today in an interview to Dmitry Kiselyov, the General Director of Rossiya Segodnya international news agency, BelTA reports

The Head of State was asked to comment on the recent statement by Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, about the possibility of deploying nuclear weapons in Eastern Europe. “Well, I’ll then propose Putin to bring nuclear weapons back to Belarus," Aleksandr Lukasheno said.

"What nuclear weapons do you mean?" Mr. Kiselyov asked in reply.

The President then explained, “We will agree on what kind. These will be nuclear weapons that will prove most effective in such an engagement. It's not for nothing that I said: we are ready for this move on the territory of Belarus. As a judicious landlord, I have destroyed nothing [of the USSR infrastructure for nuclear weapons from USSR times – BelTA’s remark], all the depots have been preserved in their places.”
