Russia, Belarus run second stage of tactical nuclear weapons drills in response to ‘Western provocation’



Russia and Belarus are conducting training drills involving tactical nuclear weapons to deter Western support for Ukraine, following provocative statements from Western officials. The drills are in response to perceived hostile actions by the U.S. and its allies. Last year, Russia moved some tactical nuclear weapons into Belarus, and the current drills involve joint training between the two countries. Tactical nuclear weapons are meant for battlefield use and are less powerful than strategic weapons. Russian President Putin has emphasized that Russia may use nuclear weapons in certain circumstances, but currently sees no threat to its sovereignty that would warrant their use. These drills come amidst tensions between Russia, Belarus, and the West over the conflict in Ukraine.
