No changes in Russia’s nuclear position: NATO chief
SAEDNEWS: NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance had not seen any changes in Russia’s nuclear posture since President Vladimir Putin’s announcement that he would station tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.

Brussels, SAEDNEWS: “So far, we haven’t seen any changes in their nuclear posture that requires any change, changing our nuclear posture,” Stoltenberg told reporters at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

Last week, Putin announced that he intends to place tactical nuclear weapons on the Belarus border to help fend off attacks on Russia.

Putin said the move did not violate international law and was doing what the US had done for decades by putting its nuclear weapons in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey (SOURCE: ALJAZEERA).
