War in Ukraine: Putin will arm neighboring Belarus with nuclear-capable missiles – archyde

A high risk shipment. Russia will deliver “in the coming months” missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads to Belarus, Vladimir Putin announced on Saturday while receiving Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko, in full tension between their countries and the West around Ukraine “In the coming months, we will transfer to Belarus Iskander-M tactical missile systems, which can use ballistic or cruise missiles, in their conventional and nuclear versions,” Vladimir Putin said at the start of his interview with Alexander Lukashenko in Saint Petersburg broadcast by Russian television. In statements that risk further straining relations between Moscow and Western countries, the two leaders also indicated that they wanted to modernize the Belarusian air force to make it capable of transporting nuclear weapons. “Many Su-25 (aircraft) are in service with the Belarusian army. They could be improved appropriately. This modernization must be carried out in aircraft factories in Russia and the training of personnel must begin in accordance with this,” Vladimir Putin declared, after Alexander Lukashenko had asked him to “adapt” his aircraft capable of transporting nuclear weapons. “We will agree on how to accomplish this,” added Vladimir Putin. A strategic ally for RussiaThis exchange comes at a time when Russia and its ally Belarus have been in open crisis with Western countries since Moscow launched, with the diplomatic and logistical support of Minsk, a military offensive against Ukraine. Since the start of the offensive, Vladimir Putin has repeatedly addressed, more or less directly, the subject of nuclear weapons Russia, Western countries seeing in it threats aimed at dissuading them from supporting Kiev. Belarus, bordering Ukraine and several NATO member countries, had already announced last month that it had purchased Iskander systems, capable of transporting nuclear charges. During their meeting on Saturday, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko also discussed the situation of the fertilizer market. Russia and Belarus are among the world’s top producers, but say Western sanctions against them in connection with Ukraine have affected their export capacities, amid growing concern over global food security. With Alexandre Lukashenko, “we agreed to do everything possible to meet the needs of our consumers and our customers” in terms of fertilizers, Vladimir Putin said on Saturday, adding that Moscow was “in close contact with specialized United Nations agencies ” about this question.
