Ten aircraft are ready to use this type of weapon. From April 3, we will start training groups, and on July 1, we will build a special warehouse for tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus. Vladimir Putin said.

On the one hand, the Russian president explained that Moscow has not violated its international nuclear non-proliferation ban, and on the other hand, the United States has been deploying its tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of its allies for decades.

Following the British, the idea was to supply Ukraine with depleted uranium bombs. One thing Vladimir Putin also wanted to offer some clarification on. Russia has something to answer for. ” Without exaggeration, we have hundreds of thousands of these types of shells that we are not using at this time. “Warned the Russian President.

The comments came days after he said in a joint statement with Chinese President Xi Jinping that a nuclear war should not be launched because it is unwinnable.
