While the decision to send nuclear weapons to Belarus was officially made after the United Kingdom announced it would supply depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime, the actual reasoning might have to do with much more sinister plans by the United States.
Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst
On March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia will start deploying its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. Construction of designated storage facilities for the weapons is planned to be completed by July 1. The decision to transfer nuclear weapons to Belarus was made after Minsk issued a formal request, essentially mirroring Washington DC’s nuclear sharing agreements with several NATO member states. And while the decision was officially made after the United Kingdom announced it would supply depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime, the actual reasoning might have to do with much more sinister plans by the United States.
Namely, Warsaw and Washington DC have been floating the idea of transferring some of the US nuclear weapons stockpiled in Europe to Poland. The move has been mentioned several times in recent years, including in early October last year, when Polish President Andrzej Duda mentioned it in an interview with Gazeta Polska. The US has nuclear sharing agreements with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Turkey, with approximately 100 (mainly air-launched) tactical nuclear weapons deployed in all five countries. Greece also took part in the program, but discontinued its participation in 2001, although it’s widely believed Athens still keeps the necessary storage facilities functional.
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko advised against UK plans to deliver depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime and warned that Russia would soon supply Belarus with “munitions with real uranium”. However, Putin himself stated that “even outside the context of these events”, Belarus still has legitimate security concerns and that “Alexander Grigoryevich [Lukashenko] has long raised the question of deploying Russian tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus”. This clearly implies that threats to Minsk transcend the immediate danger of depleted uranium munitions deliveries to the Neo-Nazi junta in Kiev.
“There is nothing unusual in such a decision, as the United States has been doing this for decades. They have long placed their tactical nuclear weapons on the territories of their allies, NATO countries, and in Europe. In six states – the Federal Republic of Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Greece – well, not in Greece now, but there is still a storage facility,” Putin stressed, further adding: “[Russia and Belarus] will do the same, without violating our international obligations on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons”.
He added that Russia is indeed mirroring the United States in this regard and that it’s not transferring the ownership of its tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, but that it’s simply deploying them to the country and training the Belarussian military to operate and use them in the case of a wider escalation by the US and NATO. The Russian military has already provided Belarus with the necessary upgrades to be able to deliver tactical nuclear warheads. At least 10 (presumably Belarussian Air Force) jets have been assigned and equipped to carry such weapons, although neither side specified what type of aircraft received the said upgrades.
Belarus operates several types of nuclear-capable fighter jets, including the recently acquired Su-30SM and the Soviet-era MiG-29. In addition to air-launched nuclear weapons, Russia already deploys ground-based assets in Belarus, including the “Iskander” systems capable of launching nuclear-tipped hypersonic and regular cruise missiles. Minsk also operates its own “Iskander” units, meaning that those too could be equipped with tactical nuclear warheads, further bolstering the country’s deterrence capabilities. This is particularly important as Belarus has also been targeted by US/NATO covert/black operations in recent years, including an attempted Maidan-style color revolution in 2020.
“We have handed over to Belarus our well-known and very effective ‘Iskander’ system that can carry [nuclear weapons],” Putin stated, adding: “On April 3, we will start training the crews and on July 1 we will complete the construction of a special storage [facility] for tactical nuclear weapons on the Belarussian territory.”
In addition to the “Iskander”, Belarus still maintains a number of Soviet-era nuclear-capable assets, including a substantial arsenal of “Tochka-U” tactical ballistic missiles. These could serve as a secondary delivery option given their shorter range and inferior accuracy when compared to the “Iskander” which boasts a 500 km range, high precision, extreme maneuverability at every stage of flight, as well as a hypersonic speed estimated to be at least Mach 5.9, although military sources indicate that it can go up to Mach 8.7. This makes the “Iskander” virtually impossible to intercept, as evidenced by its performance during the SMO (special military operation). The system also provides a significant advantage over NATO forces in Eastern Europe.
President Lukashenko strongly indicated that Minsk could host Russian nuclear weapons as soon as NATO implied it could deploy US B61 nuclear bombs to Poland, highlighting that his country’s Soviet-era infrastructure for such weapons remains intact despite US pressure to destroy it during the 1990s. Belarus is home to a growing arsenal of state-of-the-art Russian military units and equipment, including strategic assets such as the S-400 SAM (surface-to-air missile) systems, as well as the advanced Su-35S air superiority fighter jets and MiG-31 interceptors, including the K/I variants capable of deploying the already legendary “Kinzhal” hypersonic missiles, which are also nuclear-capable.

Putin use every possible threat. Thats how barkng mad people are.
It seemes as if he is already tacktical nuked himself.
Oh Jens you are just so pathetic. Is your poor Mother alive to see what you’ve become? I hope for her sake she’s not as living with the shame of your presence would be so awful.
I live in the world You know nothing about. We are raised to listen and learn and by that has the right for own oppinions.
Its shown in Our parlaments where most of them are doing fine.
Cildren and parents are not related like that in Denmark. We are own persons with own ID. Having a murder or theif in Our families does not say we are responsible.
But we are responsible to the state.
Of course parents and children interacts too. Its a part of life but no overwhelming vital.
You live in little Denmark, a pip squeak little country tucked away in a back water corner of Europe.
Jens Holm you are going to die HARD! Danske jævel. skal drepe deg!
“Putin is losing that’s why he threatens with nuclear weapons.” is useless MSM propaganda that doesn’t even work. NATO is so afraid of Putin’s nukes they won’t even deploy nukes to Poland.
kill your self before we find you! Danske jævel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jens holm barks very loud in order to his mom let in out of his cage on the basement of thierfMom’s house so Jens holm can comment nonsense in SouthFront
Why Russia is Strategically and Tactically incapable of Pearl Harbor or 911:
1. russia is a closet juden, with more slav kikes in kikerael than filthy jews that were gassed. (cognitive dissonance between purity and filthy jews)
2. russia lost more civillians after victory day than before it (cognitive dissonance about the meaning of victory)
3. russia says it is against filthy faggots, but its oligarchs are all filthy faggots (cognitive dissonance about faggotry of saudis and mossheadists).
4. russia has never lifted a finger against the synagogue of satan(la) because jewtin would rather bathe in deers blood. (cognitive dissonance about adrenochrome trafficking).
5. russia would only use nukes first when it realizes it will lose, and will threaten to use nukes in order to prevent it. (cognitive dissonance of the meaning of Mujahid, Kamikaze, and National Socialism)
We continue to condemn any and all continued attempts to hold us hostage with nuclear weapons by any party for any reason whatsoever.
you do that retard!
We know for a fact that nuclear weapons are no longer needed for security or for strategic stability. The only purpose they serve is to hold the people hostage with threat of extermination.
Russian military doctrine has no provision for “tactical” nuclear weapons, only for strategic nuclear weapons. Western media sources are adding the word tactical as a propaganda tactic to make it seem like Russia might use such weapons in Ukraine.
Poland & Lithuania are next in line to fight Russia for Western overlords, moving Iskander to Bielarussia is a necessary move to threaten those ennemies and help them keep some sense.. (Psychopath leaders now under threat have to think twice before sending their armies to be butchered against Russia)
I’m expecting Poland to do something stupid. Not sure about Lithuania as they don’t have much to offer in warfare.
IMHO, it’s a legitimate response.
Give the evil Satanic pedovores no chance and no rest. Next please arm China with your wonderful aircraft carrier and rusty USSAN tubs squashing missiles and keep the anglosaxon demon far from the South China sea. Iran also needs to be fully armed against the apartheid abomination in occupied Palestine. Time to denaZify the entire angloZionaZi empire of fecalia.
Well good for Belarus in not becoming a cheap worthless rag in the civilised west. Lukashenko has played a wise move to see what the future held as part of the western elite.
British snakes and American pigs will learn the hard way
