Russian nukes are now in Belarus, says Putin

In remarks at this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Vladimir Putin confirmed that Russia has delivered the first batch of nuclear weapons to facilities in Belarus, vowing that more warheads will arrive before the end of the year.

Putin first announced his plan to move nukes to Belarus in March 2023, arguing that the transfer of weapons doesn’t violate the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons because the missiles will remain under Russian control (like NATO’s policy of nuclear sharing, though Moscow has claimed in the past that this violates the NPT).
