VLADS NUKE SHOCK: Putin Sells Nuke Capable Misslies To Ally Belarus

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sold nuclear-capable Iskander missiles to Belarus, his ally in the war on Ukraine.

The deadly 9K720 Iskander short-range ballistic missiles are capable of delivering a devastating nuclear payload.

And Belarus’s president Aleksandr Lukashenko – a pal of Putin’s – gloated: “At the very least, this weapon can cause unacceptable, colossal damage.”

Lukashenko has bought 9K720 Iskander nuclear-capable missiles and S-400 missile systems from Putin and says he plans to produce his own by the end of the year.

The 67-year-old Belarusian leader held a meeting with the head of the Russian region of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast – Gleb Nikitin, 44 – to discuss ordering a “sufficient” number of the missile defence systems.

He also boasted that they “now have a completely different army” with the Russian missile systems at his disposal.

President Lukashenko said: “We made an agreement with Putin. We bought from you a number of these Iskanders and S-400s we needed, and armed our army.

“Now we have a completely different army with such weapons. At the very least, this weapon can cause unacceptable, colossal damage.”

He also said that Belarus hopes to start production of these missile systems by the end of the year with the help of Russian weapons experts.

Belarus, Putin’s main ally, has been allowing Russian units to use territory bordering with Ukraine as a rear base.

Earlier this month, the Belarusian leader accused the West of being “at war with Russia” in Ukraine as well as supporting far-right ideas.

Belarusian forces have not been directly involved in the invasion of Ukraine, however western sanctions have included Russia’s main ally.

Lukashenko, dubbed ‘Europe’s last dictator’, has been the first and only president of Belarus since 20th July 1994, making him the longest-sitting European leader.
