Russia is Willing to Negotiate Withdrawing Nuclear Weapons From Belarus

Senior Russian Foreign Ministry Official Aleksey Polishchuk said that Russia is willing to negotiate a nuclear withdrawal on the European continent with the United States government. However, the Russian government official stressed that this nuclear withdrawal from Belarus can only happen if certain conditions are met.

In an interview with RIA Novosti, Polishchuk stated that the US must dismantle its nuclear infrastructure and take down all of its nuclear warheads from Europe.

Polishchuk detailed how the Putin regime deployed nuclear weapons to Belarus “in response to years-long destabilizing nuclear policies by NATO and Washington, as well as the fundamental changes that have recently taken place in key areas of European security.”

Per Polishchuk, he declared “Russia could consider withdrawing its tactical nuclear weapons from Belarus if the US and NATO end their hostile policies toward Moscow and Minsk.” Polishchuk is the director of the Russian foreign ministry’s department of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).

“This implies the complete withdrawal of all U.S. nuclear weapons to US territory and the elimination of the corresponding infrastructure in Europe,” Polischuk emphasized.

“This forced containment measure is designed to ensure the security of the Union State [of Belarus and Russia], which, as you know, has a common defense space,” he stated. 

Back in the middle of June, Putin confirmed that the first Russian nuclear warheads had already been deployed in Belarus. This development was later confirmed by his counterpart, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

The fact of the matter is that the US is an over-stretched empire that looks to confront any nation who doesn’t bend the knee to its universalist agenda. For the sake of maintaining international peace, the US needs to stop searching for monsters abroad to destroy and retrench. In doing so, the US can focus on securing its southern border with Mexico and making the West Hemisphere.
