Following ‘referendum,’ Belarus could host Russian nuclear weapons
Belarussian citizens have “voted” to repeal Belarus’ neutral and non-nuclear status, the country’s electoral commission announced on Feb. 28.
It was reported that on Feb. 27, a total of 65.16% of those who voted in the “referendum” had approved the constitutional amendments proposed by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenka.
According to the commission, the turnout for the plebiscite was 78.63%.
The amended constitution also introduces presidential term limits: presidents will now be limited to two terms in office.
Earlier, Belarusian national leader Svitlana Tsikhanouskaya stated that she felt “ashamed” that Belarus was being used as a staging ground for attacks on Ukraine.
