Russia has signed a deal to station tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus

He said 10 aircraft capable of carrying tactical nuclear weapons are already in Belarus, and that a storage facility will be completed by July. It will be the first transfer of nuclear weapons to another country since the mid-1990s.
