According to the Campaign for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus could lead to disaster.

In Geneva, it was noted that the plan of Russian President

Vladimir Putin

is an "extremely dangerous escalation", writes Tagesschau.

This increases the probability of using such a weapon.

"In the context of the war in Ukraine, the risk of erroneous assessment or misinterpretation is extremely high."

The organization reminded that the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) prohibits states from allowing foreign nuclear weapons into their territory.

The agreement adopted in 2017 has been signed by 92 countries.

Russia and Belarus are not among them.

States that have US nuclear weapons bases - Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey - also disagreed.

On March 25, the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, on the air of the Rossiya-24 TV channel, noted that the construction of a storage facility for tactical nuclear weapons will be completed in Belarus on July 1.

According to Putin,

Alexander Lukashenko

has long been asking him to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.

In addition, Moscow has already transferred to Minsk the Iskander missile complex, which can use this weapon.
