Russia is increasingly militarizing Belarus and Kaliningrad, Polish President says

Poland is ready to deploy U.S. nuclear weapons if NATO decides to deploy them in front of the borders of Russia, which is increasingly militarizing Belarus and Kaliningrad. This topic is being discussed during negotiations with the United States.

A statement to this effect was made by Polish President Andrzej Duda in an interview with Fakt published on Monday, April 20. "If our allies decide to deploy nuclear weapons on our territory within the framework of the joint use of nuclear weapons to strengthen NATO's eastern flank, we are ready to do so," he said.

The interview followed Duda's visit to New York, where he held meetings at the UN and discussed the war in Ukraine with former US President Donald Trump. In March, he visited Washington, D.C., where he met with U.S. President Joe Biden.

According to him, the deployment of American nuclear weapons in Poland "has been a topic of negotiations" with the United States for some time.

"I have already spoken about this several times. I have to admit that when I was asked about it, I declared our readiness. Russia is increasingly militarizing Kaliningrad. Recently, it has been moving its nuclear weapons to Belarus," Duda said.

As OBOZ.UA reported, in June 2023, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin confirmed that Russia had sent tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, which borders Ukraine and Poland.
