Ukraine Plans Mass Recruitment if Russia Deploys Nuclear Weapons in Belarus

1 Min Read

A senior official of the Ukraine ruling party has warned that the country could trigger mass recruitment if Russia hands over nuclear weapons to neighbouring Belarus.

“While we don’t believe that this will happen, the events of the past year have shown that anything is possible. No one believed, for instance, that Russia would invade on such scale,” said David Arakhamia, the leader of “Servant of the People” party.

If Belarus acquires nuclear weapons from Russia, it could lead to the opening of a second front.

“This could mean recruiting more people into the army. We would need at least eight more brigades to control this front line,” Arakhamia explained.

The lawmaker also pointed out that, luckily, the terrain in the potential front-line area is difficult, with swamps making it challenging for an attacker to make significant progress.

President Vladimir Putin’s announcement on to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus has been heavily criticized by officials in Europe and the United States.

Oleksiy Danilov, the Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine, has expressed the view that if the Kremlin deploys its nuclear weapons to Belarus, it is effectively holding its supposed ally hostage.
