Berlin denounces Moscow’s “nuclear intimidation” in Belarus


Today, Sunday, the German government denounced a “new attempt at nuclear intimidation” by Moscow, after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the deployment of “tactical” nuclear missiles on the territory of Belarus.

“We will not let ourselves be derailed” by these threats, an official at the German Foreign Ministry told AFP on condition of anonymity.

He added, “The comparison made by President Putin with NATO’s nuclear missiles is wrong, and cannot be used as a justification,” noting also that Belarus “violates” its commitment to remain a land free of nuclear weapons.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced yesterday that his country had agreed with Minsk to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on Belarusian territory, adding that the necessary bunkers for these weapons are under construction and will be ready as of next July.

In response to Britain

He also stressed that the reason for this step was due to Britain’s announcement of its intention to supply Ukraine with depleted uranium ammunition, noting that Belarus had requested the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on its territory for a long time.

It is noteworthy that the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, and Putin’s close ally, had confirmed in previous statements that if London provided Kiev with uranium, it would give it real uranium, “as he put it.

He also considered, in statements a few days ago, that as soon as the British ammunition exploded in the positions of the Russian forces, “the response will be terrible, and a lesson for the entire planet.”

In turn, Ukraine considered that Moscow was taking its neighbor as a nuclear hostage and exploiting it. The Ukrainian Minister of National Security and Defense, Oleksiy Danilov, saw that Minsk risked destabilizing its security if it deployed Russian nuclear weapons.
