    President Duda Describes Putin’s Proposed Nuclear Weapons in Belarus as ‘Muscle-Flexing’

    The Polish president has accused Russian leader Vladimir Putin of attempting to intimidate the world with his announcement of plans to relocate nuclear weapons to Belarus, calling it nothing more than “muscle-flexing”.

    Polish President Andrzej Duda held talks with Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen in Vienna on Tuesday and addressed the media afterwards. Duda discussed the importance of strengthening diplomatic ties between the two countries and how it will benefit both nations.

    President Duda also addressed the latest Putin’s announcement concerning the relocation of a nuclear weapon to Belarus.

    “I believe this is an attempt to frighten us; to drown us in psychosis. We will not be intimidated,”

    said Duda.

    In a statement, Putin described the move as an effort to strengthen the country’s nuclear deterrent capabilities. Duda, however, further stated that the relocation would create an impression of Russia’s nuclear power being closer to Western Europe.

    Polish President Andrzej Duda expressed his deep concern about Russian-occupied nuclear power plants in Ukraine on Tuesday, citing the potential for a “catastrophic” disaster.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced a plan to move tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, a move that has been met with some criticism from Western nations. The announcement was made in late March, causing alarm among the international community who fear the move could lead to an escalation of tensions.
