Vladimir Putin has said Belarus will join Russia in the second stage of exercises to test the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons – or tactical nukes – as World War 3 and NATO tensions explode.

The Russian president, speaking today at the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow, confirmed the relevant instructions have already been communicated to the respective Defense Ministries and General Staff.

He said: “Since non-strategic nuclear weapons are located on the territory of Belarus, this time we invited our friends and allies, and the President of Belarus also asked, to take part in one of the stages of this exercise.

Russian state news agency RIA Novosti said on Telegram: “Belarus will join Russia in the second stage of exercises to test the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, Putin said.

“This time they are carried out in three stages. At the second stage, Belarusian colleagues will join our joint actions; corresponding instructions have been given to the Ministries of Defense and General Staffs.”

Last week, Putin ordered the Russian Ministry of Defence to carry out exercises on the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, also known as tactical nukes. The exercises will take place in three phases

Russian media quoted the Ministry as stating: “On instructions from the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, in order to increase the readiness of non-strategic nuclear forces to carry out combat missions, the General Staff has begun preparations for holding exercises in the near future with missile formations of the Southern Military District with the involvement of aviation, as well as naval forces.”

This comes as more troops from Belarus have been sent to the Polish border, sparking concerns for a potential attack. Belarusian president Aleksandr Lukashenko has openly stated his battalions are at “full operational readiness” to stand toe-to-toe with NATO.

Poland has long been a strategic key point in ongoing tensions with Russia given its border with Belarus and the Kaliningrad enclave, one of the most militarised places in Russia.

Polish President Andrezj Duda has said he will counter any strike from Belarus on its borders.

“If our allies decide to deploy nuclear arms on our territory as part of nuclear sharing, to reinforce NATO’s eastern flank, we are ready to do so”, he said. “I’ve already talked about it several times. I must admit that when asked about it, I declared our readiness.”

  1. I believe that inviting Belarus to join the tactical nuclear exercise is a reckless move that escalates tensions and risks dangerous outcomes. This collaboration only fuels the already heightened fears of a potential World War 3 scenario, and should be approached with extreme caution and concern.
