According to Alina Frolova, general director of the Center for Defense Strategies, the Russian army has sent a special unit to the Crimean peninsula. This unit is responsible for the service of nuclear objects, including strategic nuclear weapons.
Alina Frolova also said during a press conference that in the temporarily occupied Crimea, there are all signs of the deployment of Russian tactical nuclear weapons.
“Russian missiles can reach any European capital from Crimea. The influence of the Russian threat is felt in the Caspian, Baltic and Mediterranean seas,” the expert noted.
Ukraine has joined the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and, after the liberation of Crimea, will free the peninsula from this type of weapons, Frolova said.
“All the facilities that have been restored for the purpose of storage, dislocation, and use of nuclear weapons, must be transferred to a different mode – either mothballed or used for another purpose,” she stressed.
The director of the center believes that after the de-occupation, Crimea should be turned into an outpost of European security.
