Lukashenko claims Russia launching nuke transfer to Belarus

The Russian Federation has already started moving nuclear munitions to the Belarus territory.

This was stated by Aleksander Lukashenko, BELTA reports.

"He (Russian President Vladimir Putin - ed.) informed me that today he had signed a decree on our actions on the deployment of nuclear weapons in Belarus. It was about a specific document. A decision was made to develop what was voiced earlier. We had to prepare storage sites etc. We did it, so the transfer of nuclear munitions has already started," Lukashenko said.

Answering the question of whether nuclear weapons are already in Belarus, Lukashenko replied: "It is possible. I will come and see."
