CBS recounts of what Putin said at the time as follows:
Russia has ratcheted up tensions with the West amid its ongoing war against Ukraine, with President Vladimir Putin saying Moscow will deploy “tactical nuclear weapons” in Belarus. The Russian leader said 10 fighter jets capable of carrying tactical nuclear weapons — generally a reference to smaller weapons used for limited battlefield attacks, rather than larger, long-range “strategic” nuclear weapons — were already deployed in Belarus. Putin said Russia would also position nuclear-armed Iskander hypersonic missiles, with a range of around 300 miles, in Belarus.
The Biden administration has meanwhile consistently condemned the Russian leader’s “irresponsible nuclear rhetoric,” and has said “no other country is inflicting such damage on arms control, nor seeking to undermine strategic stability in Europe.” The West has viewed movement of the nukes into Belarus as a major escalation and provocation, but so far rhetoric of NATO officials surrounding this has remained calm.
However, the Kremlin has in response pointed out that the US has stationed nukes in five non-nuclear states across Europe, and even in Turkey.
