Self-proclaimed Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said that Russian nuclear weapons have already begun to move to Belarus under bilateral agreements.
According to Yevropeiska Pravda, Lukashenko said this on Thursday on the sidelines of the Higher Eurasian Economic Forum in Moscow, with the video published by pro-government Belarusian media.
The Belarusian dictator commented on the agreement signed by the defense ministers of Belarus and Russia on the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on Belarusian territory.
"A decision has already been made to develop what was said orally. We had to prepare the sites, storage, and so on. We have done all this, so... the movement of nuclear weapons has begun," he added.
Asked whether Russian nuclear weapons are already in Belarus, Lukashenko said: "Perhaps. I will come and see".
