According to him, the White House should not give the impression that the States are holding back the clang of Russian weapons.
Republican Senator Jim Risch called on US President Joe Biden to transfer long-range and cluster munitions to Ukraine in response to Russian and President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats.
About this politician wrote on Twitter. According to him, the White House should not give the impression that the United States is holding back the clang of nuclear weapons from Putin. As you know, he threatens to place tactical nuclear warheads in Belarus.
Rish is convinced that the White House has an obligation to respond with increased military aid to Ukraine. In his opinion, the States should give the Armed Forces of Ukraine the ability to deliver long-range strikes.
Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus – what is known
On March 25, 2023, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin announced plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus.
Ukraine immediately reacted to the Kremlin’s statements and called for the immediate convening of an extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council.
Belarus called the deployment of Russian nuclear weapons on the territory of the state “forced retaliatory measures” to strengthen defense capability and security. Allegedly, this step does not violate the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in any way.
