Russia-Ukraine war news: Putin to store tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus

NATO called Russia’s nuclear rhetoric “dangerous and irresponsible” on Sunday after Moscow said it would move 10 nuclear-capable warplanes to Belarus, which shares a long border with northern Ukraine.

Oana Lungescu, a spokesperson for the military alliance, said that it was “closely monitoring the situation” as the United States said there was no reason to change its nuclear posture amid Russia’s decision to station tactical weapons in neighbor Belarus. The State Department said the United States is “committed to the collective defense of the NATO alliance,” noting that NATO is a “defensive Alliance which does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to any country.”
