Putin will deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus to strike at Lithuania and Poland: the historian named the moon
Felshtinsky believes that in response to this, NATO can completely wipe out Belarus as a state.
Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus to strike at Lithuania and Poland. He will do so if the West does not take preventive action.
Historian Yuri Felshtinsky expressed this opinion in a conversation with Russian oppositionist, lawyer Mark Feigin.
The historian explained that it is possible to threaten the West with nuclear weapons from Russia, for this it is not necessary to transfer them to Belarus.
“It is transferred in one single case – to deliver a nuclear strike. I declare with complete responsibility that no later than September of this year, nuclear strikes will be launched from Belarus against Lithuania and Poland if the West does not take preventive actions in this direction,” Felshtinsky said.
He added that the possibility of using Belarus as a springboard for a nuclear strike is the only reason why Putin does not annex this state.
“If there were any red lines that Putin should not cross, or the crossing of which means literally catastrophic consequences for Europe, then this red line has already been crossed by Putin,” the historian noted.
At the same time, he expressed his conviction that in response to a nuclear strike from Belarus, it would simply be destroyed.
Recall that on March 24, Putin announced the completion of the construction of a storage facility for tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus in the summer. He also said that Russia could deploy its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.
Commenting on this statement by Putin, Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anusauskas said that he was thus trying to intimidate Ukraine's allies. The Minister also advised not to pay attention to such statements.
At the same time, Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Lukasz Yassina said that Putin's decision further increases tensions over the war against Ukraine, is an increased threat to peace in Europe and around the world.
