Description of the fake LIE

Joint nuclear exercises between Russia and Belarus are an adequate response to NATO’s participation in the war in Ukraine and the West’s permission to strike the Russian Federation territory. This was stated by the Russian Security Council Secretary Sergei Shoigu.

Refutation TRUTH

The joint exercises of tactical nuclear forces launched by Russia and Belarus are another act of nuclear blackmail aimed at putting pressure on the international community.

Putin’s Russia has been using nuclear blackmail since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, namely since March 2022, when Russian troops captured the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Enerhodar and took its personnel hostage.

The invaders use the Zaporizhzhia NPP as a “nuclear shield” for shelling from the station’s territory, store weapons and ammunition there, and create the threat of man-made disaster.

Shoigu’s “statements” are a shift of responsibility for committed crimes from the aggressor to the victim. And no NATO troops, which propagandists and Putin’s puppets constantly talk about, were and are not on the territory of Ukraine.
