Russia has struck a deal with Belarus to station tactical nuclear weapons on its territory but will not violate non-proliferation agreements, Vladimir Putin has said.
The Belarusian president, Alexander Lukashenko, had long raised the issue of stationing tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, which borders Poland, Putin told state television.
“There is nothing unusual here either: firstly, the United States has been doing this for decades,” he said. “They have long deployed their tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of their allied countries.
A video grab from footage released by the Russian defence ministry last month apparently shows Russian forces in a drill with the Belarus army.

“We agreed that we will do the same – without violating our obligations, I emphasise, without violating our international obligations on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons.”

Joe Vodka sitting in Minsk watching hockey on TV probably wants no part of this.
Lukashenko is going to get the Nicolae Ceaușescu treatment. His people don’t want this crap.
I was going to say the Mussolini Treatment, but that works too.
Coming to Zelenskyy first.
Fine! Lets put some tactical nukes in Poland and Romania then.
I don’t either. No American should.
Will Biden now put tactical nukes in Poland? We have our first “official” garrison there now and I believe a large component of the 101st is still in country.
Tit for tat is the Pavlovian response for the Ivy-league idiots that are in charge of such things.....
I don’t really fear a “conventional” war between NATO and Russia, but the nuclear tension is real.
are there any American nukes stored in countries next to Russia?
guess that will have to change, given Russia’s reckless escalation
I haven't met anyone yet hoping for an escalation in this contrived war...
And don’t forget about the biological labs in Ukraine.
I don't believe the leverage of hypersonic missiles is widely understood yet in changing war.
Neither does Joe Budweiser sitting in Kentucky.
The rotted wood snake a few posts above you does.
The phrase to describe Putin words is “nuclear Bravado”
His nuclear hole card is a deuce
and the cuck_canadian...
I'm thinking a nerd like you hasn't the strength to pick up a gun, but your Neocon bellicosity is noted.
The key word is tactical. Theater. Doesn’t matter. If any NATO member is affected it’s war. Fallout from use in Ukraine? Interesting.
