The Independent Online published a report talks about Russia being deploying nuclear weapons in Belarus.
The report says that Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an agreement with ally Belarus to deploy and store tactical nuclear weapons in strategic locations, so that this step will be completed within a few weeks.
The report adds that it is the first time since the collapse of the former Soviet Union that Moscow has moved its nuclear warheads outside its territory, while the United States already has nuclear weapons deployed in 5 NATO member states.
The report says that Russian media confirmed that Russia has already begun transferring weapons to Belarus, after the signing of an agreement between Putin and his counterpart in Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, allowing the transfer and storage of the agreed quantities of nuclear weapons to be completed within one month, including tactical nuclear bombs. Small, short-range nuclear warhead missiles.
The Russian move coincides with the announcement of the leader of the Russian Wagner mercenary group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, that Putin may face a popular revolution similar to what happened in 1917, and Russia faces the danger of losing the war in Ukraine, if the elite doesn’t deal seriously with the war, after withdrawing Wagner’s mercenaries from Bakhmut, handing over the positions they controlled to the Russian forces, quoting Prigozhin as warning that the Ukrainian forces are seeking to besiege Bakhmut, and then launch into the Crimea.
The report states that Ukraine is preparing itself and mobilizing its forces to launch a large-scale counterattack, in the coming weeks, and aims to push the Russian forces beyond the border lines in 2014, the year in which Moscow announced the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea peninsula, and Bergozin notes that this scenario won’t be in the interests of Russia, mostly, so we must prepare ourselves for a difficult war”.
