US Claims Russian Nuclear Weapons May Be Stationed in Belarus After Constitutional Changes

WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 19th January, 2022) Proposed changes to the Belarusian constitution indicate Minsk may allow Russian conventional and nuclear weapons to be stationed on its territory, a senior US State Department official said on Tuesday.
