France condemns the statement of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin about the deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus.
This is reported with reference to the press service of the French Foreign Ministry.
The ministry noted that after Russia's violation of the START treaty and suspension of Russia's participation in it, the agreement with Belarus represents “a further erosion of the international architecture of arms control and strategic stability in Europe”.
"France calls on Russia to show the responsibility expected of a nuclear-weapon state and to withdraw from this destabilizing agreement (with Belarus on the deployment of nuclear weapons,- ed.)," the statement reads.
As a reminder, on March 25, the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin said that he allegedly decided to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus at the request of Lukashenko, the head of the Belarusian regime.
