Amid the Ukraine war, tensions have been rising between Russia and the west risking an all-out war which many analysts fear will turn nuclear, its no secret that Russian President Vladimir Putin has affirmed his readiness to use nuclear weapons if the security of Russia is threatened or any NATO member country attacks Russia.
The Belarusian president Alexander said that Russia should deploy nuclear weapons in his country to counter western hegemony while meeting with Russian foreign minister Lavrov. He also reminded the world that both Russia and Belarus paid a heavy price in 1941 even though they had nothing to do with it as he called on former Soviet Union Countries to establish good relations with Russia to preserve their sovereignty.
He also warned that former Soviet Union states try re-approaching the union because only together can they face global challenges and those who still have doubts should understand that speedy unity and cohesion, strengthening of interstate ties and simply normal human relations may not exist tomorrow.
Russia started a special military operation in Ukraine on 24 Feb triggering the toughest sanctions ever put on one country by the US and its allies, this didn’t only cause tensions between Russia and the west but also led global food and energy crisis. US and UK used this crisis to unite western countries and expand NATO to include both Sweden and Finland.
NATO has also deployed up to 300,000 troops on its eastern borders which have prompted Belarus to request Russia for nuclear weapons as a deterrence means.
