Belarusian air force crews have completed their training for using tactical nuclear weapons as part of Russia’s plan to deploy the weapons to its ally Belarus amid the fighting in neighboring Ukraine, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.
The ministry released a video in which a Belarusian pilot said that the training course in Russia had given the crews of the Belarusian air force’s Su-25 ground attack jets the necessary skills for using the weapons.
Russian President Vladimir Putin declared last month that Moscow planned to put some of its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. It was another attempt by the Kremlin leader to dangle the nuclear threat to discourage the West from supporting Ukraine.
Russia has a union agreement with Belarus that envisions close political, economic and military ties. Russian troops used Belarusian territory to roll into Ukraine from the north in February 2022 and have maintained a presence in Belarus.

What time is it in Bakhmut?
This is not news.
Lukashenko making his country into Russia’s nuclear patsy...
I don’t blame him, NATO’s encroachment over the decades forced Vlad into establishing his buffer zone. Fair game.
That said, Vlad has much, much more. His hypersonic missiles can be equipped with nukes- Brussels, Paris, London, Berlin, etc. can be neutralized in a few short minutes, with virtually no warning.
Biden and his war cheerleaders have been outsmarted, again. The collective West’s calls for war, war, war instead of Peace or negotiations is putting the final nails in their own coffin.
The outcome was so predictable.
Putin is an ass.
So Russia’s gonna be spreading nukes? OK,two can play at that game. Why don’t we give a few to South Korea...to Japan...to Poland...to Finland...
“ Lukashenko making his country into Russia’s nuclear patsy.”
I’m guessing that you’re ignorant of the FACT that the US has trained pilots of allied nations such as Germany and Italy to deploy American nuclear weapons? Does that make them our “patsies”?
No, because they are disciplined and professional western militaries, and are not stupid and/or incompetent enough to "accidentally" lob one at Lyiv or Lviv or Kherson or Kharkiv, like Lukashenko would do if Putin asked him to.
Re-watching Dr. Strangelove, Major “King” Kong shows the proper way to deploy nuclear bombs.
Absolutely. Push Putin and Lukashenko in a corner and don’t be surprised they fight back. NATO once had a policy of not crossing the red line with Putin (inviting Ukraine) and now here we are. The world is on the verge of nuclear war. I guess TPTB had to de-populate the earth somehow. The Scamdemic and vaccine didn’t do it, so go to Plan B.
I suspect the Belarussians hate Russia for propping up a dictator in their country. So maybe one of those pilots will do us a favor and return one of Russia’s nukes to them.
“You must learn to think in Russian.”

So much for the Neocons overthrowing the government in Belarus...and they were REALLY CLOSE to pulling that off!
Yes, Neocons have made nukes a insurance policy against color revolutions. Iran will join the Club shortly.
