Pentagon finds no signs russia plans to use nuclear weapons

The Pentagon believes there are no signs that russia is preparing to use nuclear weapons after the aggressor country's dictator, vladimir putin, stated that moscow and minsk have agreed to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of belarus.

Reuters writes about it.

The US Department of Defense emphasized that they had seen the message about russia's statement and would continue to monitor this situation.

" We have not seen any reason to adjust our own strategic nuclear posture, nor any indications russia is preparing to use a nuclear weapon. We remain committed to the collective defense of the NATO alliance, " the Pentagon said.

It should be noted that the deputy head of the russian Security Council, dmytriy medvedev, said that the threat of a nuclear conflict has increased and that arms deliveries to Ukraine are bringing a "nuclear apocalypse" closer.

As Rubryka wrote, russia intends to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of belarus.

According to putin, the reason for this was the decision of Great Britain to transfer shells with depleted uranium to Ukraine.

"But even outside the context of these events, Alexander Lukashenko has long been raising the issue of placing russian tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus," Putin said.

For reference:

It should be noted that on March 21, the Deputy Minister of Defense of Great Britain, Annabel Goldie, announced that, in addition to tanks, the country would provide Ukraine with shells containing depleted uranium.

The russian government said that London's actions undermined strategic stability in the whole world, and putin claimed that "the West has decided to fight with russia to the last Ukrainian, not in words, but in deed."

The Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom claimed that putin was resorting to deliberate disinformation. He publicly criticized the decision to send depleted uranium ammunition to Ukraine.
