Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said Tuesday that his country’s ballistic rocket launchers would be ready to work from day one if NATO moves U.S. atomic bombs from Germany to Eastern Europe.
Speaking to the media, President Alexander Lukashenko said that if Russia faces aggression from Ukraine, Minsk will support Moscow.
He affirmed that Belarus is ready to use nuclear weapons in the face of what he sees as growing threats from enemies.
When the media asked him about the possible redeployment of U.S. atomic bombs to Eastern Europe if Germany’s new government were no longer willing to house the weapons, Lukashenko replied that he would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to send nuclear weapons that were withdrawn after the 1991 Soviet collapse back to Belarus.
“I would offer Putin to return nuclear weapons to Belarus,” Lukashenko said.
According to international media, the maven Belarusian leader revealed that Belarus has carefully preserved the necessary military infrastructure dating back to the Soviet era.
