News in minutes: What's happening in the world

Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko has said that Russia has begun moving tactical nuclear warheads (weapons that explode through a nuclear reaction and cause mass destruction) for storage in Belarus, adding that it was possible the weapons had arrived already in his place.

"We had to prepare the storage spaces and the rest there [in Belarus]. We've done it all. That is why the relocation of nuclear munitions began," Lukashenko said during a summit of the Eurasian Economic Forum in Moscow.

The plan to deploy tactical nuclear weapons on foreign soil is Russia's first since 1991. The Kremlin has defended the decision saying it is being provoked by Western powers that support Ukraine.
