Russia possesses advanced and unique weapons capable of wiping out any enemy, including the United States, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said in an interview with the

Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper relaunched by TASS.

"Russia is patient and does not intimidate anyone with its military edge. However, it possesses advanced and unique weapons capable of destroying any enemy, including the United States, in the event of a threat to its existence," the security chief said.

Furthermore, Russia will proceed with plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus regardless of the reaction of the West.

This was reported by the Kremlin quoted by the state agency Tass.

The West's reaction cannot affect Russia's plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today.

"Undoubtedly, such a reaction cannot affect Russia's plans," Peskov assured, saying he had nothing to add to what Russian President Vladimir Putin explained in an interview on Saturday.

The Ambassador of Ukraine in Italy Yaroslav Melnyk comments: "We are monitoring the situation and see what concrete steps will be taken. For this reason we have requested a meeting of the UN Security Council and we hope that this issue will be very well discussed by all allied partners and from all countries of the world".

The EU is ready to respond with further sanctions".

Russia's nuclear rhetoric is "dangerous and irresponsible",

"NATO is vigilant, we are monitoring the situation and there are no steps that will force us to change our strategy", added the Alliance spokesman.

Russia is holding Minsk as a "nuclear hostage,"

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov said.

"The Kremlin has taken Belarus as a nuclear hostage," Danilov wrote on Twitter, adding that the move represents "a step towards internal destabilization of the country."

"Putin's statement on the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus, a step towards internal destabilization of the country, maximizes the level of negative perception and public rejection of Russia and Putin in Belarusian society. The Kremlin has taken Belarus hostage nuclear power,” reads the tweet.

Meanwhile, clashes continue in Ukraine.
