The Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko has warned that the US are “pushing” Vladimir Putin to use “the most terrifying weapon” over their continued support for Ukraine.
Lukashenko warned that the billions in military aid packages being sent to Ukraine will trigger an enormous escalation in the war.
Speaking at a military base somewhere in Brest Lukashenko said, “I am getting the impression – I say again that it is my opinion – that Americans are pushing Russians toward using the most terrifying weapon.
“They arm Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelensky and his army and provide long-range missiles. Even missiles able to fly for 300 km (186 miles).”

Lukashenko warned that should Kyiv use a US long-range weapon to hit a target in the Russian Federation this will spark a “colossal” response from Putin.
The Belarusian dictator added, “One such attack deep into the Russian territory and the response will be colossal. Otherwise, why do we need these (nuclear) weapons for?”
He added that Americans do not have any fear for their safety “because they are across the ocean.”
Lukashenko’s warning came after Putin gave his most serious nuclear threat to date that two systems are now ready to be used.
Putin said that the Satan-2 and the “Flying Chernobyl” missiles will be ready very soon, he warned that Russia has “practically finished work on the modern strategic weapons that I have been talking about and I announced a few years ago.”
Putin told a conference in Sochi, “From the moment the launch of missiles is detected, no matter where it comes from – from any point of the world ocean or from any territory – such a number, so many hundreds of our missiles appear in the air in a retaliatory strike that there is no chance of survival there will be no single enemy left, and in several directions at once.
“The last successful test of the Burevestnik, a global-range cruise missile with a nuclear installation, a nuclear propulsion system, has been carried out.”
The Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has previously warned the West that Russia will not accept any solution but that of total defeat of Ukraine.
This is a reminder that there are high stakes involved in the Ukrainian war and Russia must be stopped dead in their tracks, or we could face a wider conflict.
Medvedev wrote in the Kremlin-owned newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, “You don’t have to be a visionary to understand that the confrontation phase will be very long.
“The confrontation will last for decades… One way to resolve it is the third world war.
“But it is bad, because the victors are not at all guaranteed further prosperity, as was the case after previous world wars… Most likely, there will simply be no winners.
“After all, it is impossible to consider as a victory the world in which nuclear winter has come, million-plus cities lie in ruins, there is no electricity due to the transcendent electromagnetic impulse, and a huge number of people die from the shock wave, light radiation, penetrating radiation and radioactive contamination.
“Where terrible epidemics and famine reign.”
