Quote: "We monitor the situation on the territory of Belarus, mainly where Russian units are located [regarding the deployment of nuclear weapons – ed.]. We monitor the situation in Russia as well. This is a priority, not only for the Ukrainian special services but also for the world community. Total control."

Details: According to Cherniak, currently, "we see an information campaign on the level of statements and words, nothing more." Cherniak added that this is yet another act of blackmail by the occupiers.


・On 25 March, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, and the storage facility for them should be ready by July.

・NATO called Russia's nuclear rhetoric "dangerous and irresponsible", while the United States said it saw no signs of Russia preparing to use nuclear weapons.

・Josep Borrel, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, sees the possible deployment of Russian tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus as a threat to European security.

・France called for the cancellation of the agreement on deploying Russian tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.

・The Security Council of Russia claimed that Russia had a unique weapon capable of destroying even the US.

・Belarus claimed that having agreed to deployment of Russian tactical nuclear weapons on their territory, they allegedly resorted to "forced retaliatory actions" to boost their own defence capabilities, which did not contradict the Treaty on non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

・US President Joe Biden Джо Байден told reporters he was concerned about Russia's plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in neighbouring Belarus.
