Russia, Belarus Define Procedure for Maintaining Non-Strategic Nuclear Arms


MINSK (Sputnik) – Belarusian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin and Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu have signed documents defining the procedure for maintaining Russia’s non-strategic nuclear weapons at a special storage facility on the territory of Belarus, the Belarusian Defense Ministry said on Thursday.

Shoigu arrived in the Belarusian capital city earlier in the day to partake in a meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization at the level of defense ministers.

“During a meeting, [the sides] signed documents defining the procedure for maintaining Russian non-strategic nuclear weapons in a special storage facility on the territory of Belarus,” the ministry wrote on Telegram.

The deployment of non-strategic nuclear weapons is a response to the aggressive policy of unfriendly countries, the ministry added.
