Quote from Khrenin: "If necessary, we will have strategic nuclear weapons. And we are already preparing our existing sites. And if the hostile rhetoric continues, this will be the next step. We will respond to force only with force. The West does not understand otherwise."

At the same time, Khrenin has pointed out once again that Belarus "has prepared equipment and aircraft that can carry nuclear munitions", and Belarus has also received "a modern Iskander missile system, which is also capable of using missiles with nuclear warheads".

And next week, according to the Belarusian Defence Minister, the preparation of the relevant Belarusian unit in Russia will be completed.
