Belarus prepares sites for strategic nuclear weapons

Minsk, Apr 14 (Prensa Latina) Belarus is preparing existing sites for a possible deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on its territory, Defense Minister Victor Jrenin, said on Friday.

The Slavic nation’s top military official stressed to the BelTA news agency that “if necessary, we will have strategic nuclear weapons. We are preparing the sites.”

In late March, Belarusian President Aleksander Lukashenko stated that his country could host such weaponry if the threat level to Minsk increased.

The Belarusian leader reported that he ordered the army to “immediately restore” the sites where Topol strategic missile systems with nuclear warheads were deployed.

Lukashenko reminded that in the 1990s, when nuclear weapons were being withdrawn from Belarus, he ordered to keep most of the sites where they had been deployed.

On March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that his country will deploy its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus at Minsk’s request, just as the United States has been doing “for decades” on the territory of its allies.

Moscow has already delivered to Belarus the Iskander ballistic missile system, which can carry nuclear weapons, and will complete the construction of a storage facility on this territory on July 1, the Russian head of state stressed.
