Poland’s Leader Says Russia’s Moving Tactical Nuclear Weapons to Belarus

By 08/22/2023 7:26 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff


Andrzej Duda, the president of Poland, claimed on Tuesday that Russia is already moving some short-range nuclear weapons to Belarus, a move that will alter both the security arrangements in the area and the entire military alliance of NATO.

Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, and Alexander Lukashenko, the president of Belarus, both declared last month that Moscow had already sent some of its tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, after making the announcement in March.

NATO and the US have not formally endorsed the action. Although calling Moscow’s rhetoric „dangerous and reckless”, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated in July that the alliance has not observed any changes in Russia’s nuclear posture.

Compared to nuclear warheads mounted on long-range missiles, which are equipped with significantly more powerful nuclear warheads, tactical nuclear weapons are designed for use on the battlefield and have a short range and low yield.

Russian officials promised to keep control of the people they transfer to Belarus. During a joint press conference with Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, the president of Portugal, who was in attendance, Duda made his remarks. Duda stated, „I was informing President (Sousa) about the execution of Vladimir Putin’s claims that Russia’s tactical nuclear weapons will be relocated to the territory of Belarus. „Yes, we can see that this process is underway.”

No further information was provided by Duda, but he did state that „it is obviously changing the security architecture in our part of Europe.” Both the eastern flank of NATO and the security architecture in our immediate neighborhood are simultaneously altering as a result.

In actuality, it is altering the situation for the entire partnership. Despite Warsaw’s lack of such threats, Lukashenko claims that the presence of Russian nuclear weapons in his nation is intended to ward off aggression from NATO-member Poland.

Poland participates in international sanctions against Russia and Belarus and offers its neighboring Ukraine military, humanitarian, and political support in its fight against Russia’s invasion.

De Sousa vowed to continue to help Ukraine’s and other nations in the area in their struggles, noting that it is just as essential to Portugal as what is happening in its own neighborhood. De Sousa declared, „We are one, we stand in unity, without any hesitation, and I have duly taken note of the Polish worries over what may be seen as the necessity to be closely observing any moves that may question the eastern frontiers of the European Union or of NATO.“
