Putin says Russia will deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus

The Agreement

According to Putin, the agreement between Moscow and Minsk was reached some time ago and was kept secret until now. The deal will allow for the deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus, which will be controlled jointly by Russia and Belarus.
The weapons in question are believed to be of a tactical nature, which means that they are designed for use on the battlefield rather than for strategic purposes. This could potentially give Russia an advantage in any conflict that arises in the region.
There is nothing unusual here either: firstly, the United States has been doing this for decades. They have long deployed their tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of their allied countries.- Russian President Vladimir Putin
We agreed that we will do the same - without violating our obligations, I emphasize, without violating our international obligations on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons.- Russian President Vladimir Putin

International Reaction

The announcement by Putin has been met with concern by many in the international community. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has called on Russia to be transparent about its military activities and to adhere to its international obligations.
The United States has also expressed concern about the deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that the US was monitoring the situation closely and that it would take all necessary steps to ensure the security of its allies in the region.
Putin did not say when the weaponry would be sent to Belarus, which borders three NATO countries: Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia. Putin stated that Russia will finish building a storage facility there by July 1.
This is part of Putin's game to try to intimidate NATO ... because there is no military utility from doing this in Belarus as Russia has so many of these weapons and forces inside Russia.- Hans Kristensen, director of the nuclear information project at the Federation of American Scientists

Belarus' Stance

Belarus has not yet commented on the announcement by Putin. However, the country has previously stated that it has no plans to host foreign military bases on its soil.
Putin stated that Moscow has stationed ten planes in Belarus capable of carrying tactical nuclear weapons, and that Russia has already sent a number of Iskander tactical missile systems capable of launching nuclear bombs to Belarus.
It's a very significant move. Russia had always been very proud that it had no nuclear weapons outside its territory. So, now, yes, they are changing that and it's a big change.- Nikolai Sokov, a senior fellow at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation

Final Words

The announcement by Putin that Moscow has reached an agreement with Belarus to station nuclear weapons in the country has raised concerns in the international community.
The deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus could potentially lead to an escalation of tensions in the region and could have serious implications for international security.
It remains to be seen how the situation will develop and whether Russia and Belarus will face any international consequences for their actions.
