Nuclear shock: Putin to deploy weapons in Belarus

Oleksandr Bud

Russian leader Vladimir Putin has announced plans to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus, causing concern and criticism from Poland and other European countries.

According to PAP, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has strongly condemned this move, considering it a threat to peace in Europe and the world.

In turn, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Alexey Danilov claims that Russia has made Belarus a "nuclear hostage."

Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas also expressed concerns, stating that Putin is trying to intimidate countries supporting Ukraine.

While Bulgarian Vice President Iliana Yotova calls for Russia and Ukraine to engage in negotiations, the White House reports that they have not yet found evidence of Russia moving nuclear weapons into Belarus.
