Russia will deploy tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, the first time Moscow has based arms outside Russia in decades. Moscow claims its Iskander-M missile system — capable of launching nuclear warheads — will be equipped for use on Belarusian soil by July.
Under the Non-Proliferation treaty, the United States, Russia, China, France and Great Britain have the right to nuclear weapons. While they cannot transfer nuclear weapons or technology to a non-nuclear power, they can deploy weapons outside their borders. The US has currently deployed nuclear weapons to Europe in countries like Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy.
