Quote: “The signal that Russia will deploy nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus signifies an unsuccessful assembly with China. [Russia – ed.] wanted to point out [it has] some company, which Russia has utterly misplaced underneath the management of President Putin.
This as soon as once more emphasises that it’s obligatory to point out some political steps or victories of Russia’s consultant, however he couldn’t do it on the battlefield, and although they began such a bloody battle, it’s apparent the way it will finish. The issue is that he merely doesn’t spare our folks and kills them, however he doesn’t depend his folks. However these are the affairs of the Russian Federation.
And the final is the whole lack of any company by the president of Belarus. I feel he not decides which weapons are on his territory.”
