U.S. sees no escalation due to nuclear weapons deployment in Belarus

May 26, 2023

The terrorist state Russia has begun the process of moving nuclear weapons to the territory of Belarus. However, the United States does not see this as a threat of escalation.


This was stated at a briefing on May 25 by White House spokesperson Karin Jean-Pierre, according to Yevropeiska Pravda. She noted that the United States is aware of the agreements between Russia and Belarus and continues to monitor the situation.

Jean-Pierre emphasized that the United States has not seen any reason to change the location of its nuclear forces, as well as any signs that Russia is preparing to use nuclear weapons from the territory of Belarus.

The White House spokesperson called the decisions of Moscow and Minsk "yet another example of irresponsible and provocative decisions" and emphasized that the United States remains committed to NATO's collective security.

To recap: On May 25, Russia and Belarus signed an agreement on the location of Russian non-strategic nuclear weapons in a special storage facility in Belarus. The aggressor country plans to build a nuclear weapons storage facility on the territory of the Russian Federation by July, and the parties have already agreed on the procedure for its maintenance - all decisions will be made by Russia.

Self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has confirmed that Russia has begun moving nuclear weapons to the territory of Belarus. The Kremlin dictator signed a decree to that effect.

When asked whether they are already on the territory of Belarus, the dictator's accomplice said: "Maybe I'll come and see."
