Global News published this video item, entitled “Lukashenko says he will ask Putin for nuclear weapons if NATO deploys similar systems to Poland” – below is their description.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said he would ask Russian President Vladimir Putin to give nuclear weapons to Belarus if similar North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) systems are deployed to neighbouring Poland.
“We are ready for this on the territory of Belarus,” Lukashenko said in an interview with a Russian news agency interview published on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Putin said on Tuesday that Russia would be forced to act if its “red lines” on Ukraine were crossed by NATO, saying Moscow would view the deployment of certain offensive missile capabilities on Ukrainian soil as a trigger.
Speaking at an investment forum in Moscow, Putin said he hoped common sense would prevail on all sides, but that he wanted NATO to be aware of Russia’s own concerns about its own security linked to Ukraine.
“If some kind of strike systems appear on the territory of Ukraine, the flight time to Moscow will be seven to 10 minutes, and five minutes in the case of a hypersonic weapon being deployed. Just imagine,” said Putin.
