One remaining step before the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus



Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement on nuclear cooperation with the Republic of Belarus caused a stir. Some countries took this decision as an indication to deploy nuclear warheads abroad, the VZGLYAD newspaper reports.

The practice of deploying nuclear weapons in other countries originated in the NATO alliance in the late 1950s. Thus, the United States showed an advantage over the USSR and created the appearance of a protectorate over the member countries of the alliance. However, the agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons between the two powers did not prevent the practice and development.

If, at the end of the Cold War, the USSR withdrew its nuclear arsenals from neighboring countries, the United States still had systems in Europe. Thus, the practice of nuclear disarmament had more influence on Russia than on the United States, but the developments continued.

Probably, the value of American nuclear weapons can increase for the countries of the European continent. The Russian president noted that there are no nuclear missiles in countries like Greece and Britain, but there are specially equipped warehouses for them. In addition, London plans to modernize them.

Probably, the actual deployment of Russian nuclear warheads on the territory of Belarusian warehouses will be the last step. However, it is reported that the construction of such storage facilities on the territory of the Republic of Belarus has not been announced. Presumably, the last step is left in reserve.

Earlier, State Duma Deputy Novikov said that the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus is a preventive measure. According to him, the decision taken by Vladimir Putin is aimed at protecting the Russian Federation from the harmful effects of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance and their allies.
