Poland wants to deploy nuclear weapons on its territory

Jul 1, 2023

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says his country would like to join the nuclear exchange program among NATO countries in view of Russia's intentions to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.


He said this after the summit in Brussels, Polsat News reports.

Morawiecki confirmed that Warsaw is interested in participating in this program.

"The final decision will depend on our American and NATO partners. We declare our will to act quickly in this matter," the Polish prime minister said.

Morawiecki emphasized that "we do not want to sit idly by while Putin is escalating all sorts of threats."

Nuclear Sharing is NATO's nuclear deterrence program. It allows for the provision of nuclear warheads to NATO member states that do not have nuclear weapons of their own. Since November 2009, US nuclear weapons have been deployed in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey under the program.

On June 16, at the St. Petersburg International Forum, Russian President Putin said that the first Russian tactical nuclear warheads are already in Belarus, and the final deployment will be completed by the end of the year.

"As you know, we have been negotiating with our Union State, with President Lukashenko, that we will move some of our tactical nuclear weapons to Belarusian territory. This happened. The first nuclear charges were delivered to the territory of Belarus," the leader of the fascist Russian Federation said.

He added that "by the end of the summer, by the end of the year" all Russian nuclear charges that are to be moved will be on the territory of Belarus.
