Russian President Vladimir Putin said that tactical nuclear weapons will be delivered to Belarus after July 7-8.
He said this at a meeting with the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, in Sochi.
"On the most sensitive issues that we agreed with you, everything is going according to plan. As you know, on July 7-8, the preparation of the relevant facilities will be completed, and we will immediately begin measures related to the placement of the relevant types of weapons on your territory," he said Putin.
At the end of March this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced an agreement with the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in the republic.
Then Putin announced that the Iskander missile complex, which can be a carrier of tactical nuclear weapons, was handed over to Belarus.
On May 25, the defense ministers of Russia and Belarus signed documents on the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons on Belarusian territory. On the same day, Lukashenko announced that the nuclear weapons of the Russian Federation had already begun to be transferred to Belarus.
