Moscow: The Russian-Ukrainian war, which began on February 24 last year, is still ongoing. Now the danger of nuclear war has also increased. Russian President Vladimir Putin has made a dangerous claim about this. Putin said on Friday that Moscow had sent its first batch of nuclear weapons to Belarus. Addressing the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg, Putin said the remaining nuclear weapons should be delivered by the end of the summer.
According to the ANI news agency, Belarus borders Ukraine, where Putin is now planning to deploy nuclear bombs. Responding to a question about the use of nuclear weapons in war, Putin said: “This is a preventive measure against everyone who thinks about Russia and its strategic defeat.”
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has confirmed that the nuclear weapon has reached Belarus. Lukashenko told Russian and Belarusian state media: “We have missiles and bombs that we received from Russia.” To Fox News, he declared that “these bombs are three times more powerful than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki”.

A week after the Ukrainian army launched a massive retaliation against Russia, Putin planned to send nuclear weapons to Belarus. According to a Fox News report, Lukashenko claims the weapons will only have a deterrent effect. In March this year, Vladimir Putin announced the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. It is the first time since 1991, when Russia deployed nuclear weapons on foreign soil.
