The document was prepared in April, but it drew attention only now. It described the location of 150 American nuclear weapons. According to the report, the bombs were placed at bases in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey.
NATO said it would not comment on the information about the nuclear potential of the Alliance. The publication notes that last week the final version of the report was published, from which information on the location of nuclear weapons was removed.
At the end of June, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO is not going to place new missiles with nuclear warheads in Europe. Stoltenberg explained that the measures that the Alliance will take in the event of termination of the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range missiles (INF) will remain defensive. The allies will be committed to the principle of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.
