Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya: “The stationing of nuclear weapons in our country will strengthen Russia's control over Belarus, which is already enormous. It will require tremendous efforts to abandon these weapons, as they may become a subject of bargaining and aggression on Russia’s end. And Belarusians will have to deal with the consequences for years.
Therefore, we must do everything we can to thwart Putin's and Lukashenka's plans to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus. Our priority is to completely rid Belarus of Russian influence.
We are already working with international organizations, national governments, and the leaders of the world's most powerful countries on an action strategy. But we cannot do it without your help and support. Belarusians, do not stand on the sidelines. The future of Belarus and whether our children can live in it depends on what we do now”.
