27th May 2023 – (Washington) U.S. President Joe Biden has expressed his strong opposition to the redeployment of Russian non-strategic nuclear weapons to Belarus, according to Reuters. The news agency reported that the U.S. leader told journalists on Friday that his reaction to this announcement was “extremely negative.”

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko had announced on Thursday that the deployment of non-strategic nuclear arms from Russia to Belarus had already begun.

The move has raised concerns among Western countries, with the U.S. expressing concern over the implications of such a deployment. The deployment of non-strategic nuclear weapons in Belarus could be seen as a provocation and could potentially escalate tensions between Russia and the West.
