US warns of possible Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus

In the midst of the Ukrainian crisis, the United States has warned of the possibility of future deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus. A US State Department official said on Tuesday that a constitutional amendment pushed by Governor Alexander Lukashenko, 67, may indicate that his country could allow Russia to place conventional and nuclear weapons on its soil.

This could be a “challenge to European security that may warrant a response”. The representative of the Ministry also expressed concern about the arrival of Russian troops in Belarus.
