The “cavalier” tone used by Russian President Vladimir Putin over the nuclear-capable missile systems promised to Belarus has been criticized as being fairly irresponsible by a senior US defense official.

In a background call with reporters, the official reportedly stated, “Our strategic forces are always monitoring developments in that regard.” CNN reports.

“We definitely take it seriously and have done so since the very beginning of the danger.

“Undoubtedly, you have reservations whenever the phrase nuclear is used. On the whole, it seems quite reckless for a national leader to bring up the use of nuclear weapons and to do so in such a casual manner.

“As for my worries, aside from the fact that they raise it, I mean, the way that Putin’s speech was interpreted, we’re going to give them Iskanders, and oh by the way, they can hold nuclear bombs.

“And when you use that terminology, everyone takes that extremely seriously. As a result, we take that threat very seriously and have done so from the outset.

And as you are aware, our strategic troops are constantly keeping an eye on those developments.

Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, informed Alexander Lukashenko, the president of Belarus, on Saturday that Belarus will receive Iskander-M missile systems with nuclear warheads in the upcoming months.
