In his talk with journalists in Moscow, the President was asked what he had discussed with Vladimir Putin during the Eurasian Economic Forum the day before. "He informed me that he had signed a decree on our actions to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus. That is, the talk was about a specific document. The decision was made in the development of what had been said orally. It was necessary to prepare storage locations there [in Belarus], and so on. We have done it all. Therefore, the displacement of nuclear weapons has begun," the President said.

"Has it started? Is it [nuclear weapons] already in Belarus?” a clarifying question followed.

"Maybe. I will return and see," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The Head of State was also asked about ensuring the safety of nuclear weapons. "It is beyond question. You know that we are punctual, neat, and masterly people, as you say. So do not worry about nuclear weapons. We are responsible for this. These are serious issues. Everything will be fine here, too," he assured.
