UH OH: Look What Russia Is Sending To Belarus….This Is Scary

    A new report says that Russia is intending to send nuclear-capable Iskander-M missile systems to Belarus over the course of the coming months, according to President Vladimir Putin, who made the announcement on Saturday.

    “In the coming months, we will transfer to Belarus Iskander-M tactical missile systems, which can use ballistic or cruise missiles, in their conventional and nuclear versions,” Putin went on to say during a broadcast aired on Russian television at the beginning of his meeting with Belarusian strongman Alexander Lukashenko in the area of St. Petersburg.

    Putin then went on to stated that the details and logistics of the weapons transfer would be discussed by the defense ministers from both countries.

    He then revealed that Russia would be aiding Belarus in upgrading its fleet of Su-25 fighter jets in order to make them capable of carrying nuclear weapons.

    “This modernization should be carried out in aircraft factories in Russia and the training of personnel should start in accordance with this,” he remarked after Lukashenko requested that he “adapt” the planes.

    Here’s a bit more info from Just the News:

    Belarus has been a key player in the Russian war against Ukraine. The country served as a staging ground for Russian troops to invade on February 24.

    Ukraine said Saturday that Russian troops had fired dozens of missiles at the Ukrainian cities of Zhytomyr and Chernihiv from Belarus.

    The Iskander-M is a mobile guided missile system code-named “SS-26 Stone” by NATO, which replaced the Soviet “Scud.”

    Its two guided missiles have a range of up to 500 kilometers (300 miles) and can carry conventional or nuclear warheads.

    Putin has made references to nuclear weapons on several occasions since his country launched a military invasion of Ukraine in February of this year, in what many described as a dire warning to the West not to get involved in the situation.

    Lukashenko stated in May that his nation had bought Iskander nuclear-capable missiles and S-400 anti-aircraft anti-missile systems from Russia.

    Anytime the words “nuclear weapon” and “Russia” are in the same sentence, it’s scary.
