US President Joe Biden speaks to reporters in Washington on May 26, 2023.

7:00 US President Joe Biden called his reaction to the news that Russia has already started transferring non-strategic nuclear weapons to Belarus extremely negative. It was written by the Reuters agency. Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko announced the start of the arms transfer on Thursday.

“We had to prepare warehouses and so on. We did that, so the transfer of nuclear munitions has already started,” Lukashenko said, adding that Belarus would guarantee their safety.

The US State Department already criticized the move on Thursday, when it “strongly condemned” Belarus’ agreement to allow Russia to deploy non-strategic nuclear weapons on its territory. On Friday, Biden joined him with a short statement. However, the United States sees no reason to change its own nuclear doctrine and believes that there is no indication that Russia is going to use nuclear weapons.

Tactical nuclear weapons with lower explosive power are intended for use on the battlefield and are not as destructive as strategic nuclear weapons. Belarus is Russia’s closest ally and has been waging war against Ukraine for 15 months. Although Minsk did not send its troops to fight, it provided Russia with territory to attack Ukraine. In the initial phase of the invasion, Russian troops led the offensive on Kiev from there.
