Russia hands over Iskander missiles to Belarus and builds storage facility for tactical nuclear weapons
During a UN Security Council meeting, Russian Permanent Representative Vasily Nebenzya said that this was done allegedly "for the security of the allied state."
Belarus' Permanent Representative to the UN, Valentin Rybakov, called on other countries "not to interfere."
"Belarus is consistently and completely transparently taking forced retaliatory actions to develop its own defense capabilities for its neighbors and the entire international community," Rybakov said.
During a briefing in Bucha, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the signal that Russia would deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus indicates an unsuccessful meeting with Chinese representatives. "It was necessary to show some kind of subjectivity, which Russia, under the leadership of President Putin, has completely lost," said Zelenskyy.
Zelenskyy noted that this also shows that the President of Belarus has lost any subjectivity.
"I think he no longer decides what weapons are located on his territory," the President of Ukraine was quoted as saying.
It will be recalled that on March 25, Vladimir Putin said that Russia plans to build a storage facility for tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.
