The Russian defense ministry recently announced, "In accordance with the decision of the president of the Russian Federation, the second stage of the drills of the tactical nuclear forces has begun."

The exercises will address joint training of the Russian and Belarusian armed forces for the combat use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, with the stated goal of "unconditionally ensuring the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Union State," the Mirror reported.

Belarusian Defence Minister Viktor Khrenin emphasized the strengthening of their defensive capabilities, stating, "Our participation in the second stage of the training of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on the use of non-strategic nuclear weapons confirms this."

"Today, we are acting proactively, raising our readiness for the use of so-called [nuclear] retaliatory weapons in a planned manner," he continued. "Now, more than ever before, we are determined to respond to any threats posed both to our country and to [Russia]."
