Vladimir Putin has agreed to share nuclear-capable missiles with Belarus in a startling TV pledge.

The warmongering Russian President has said Russia’s Iskander-M systems are capable of using normal and deadlier weapons.

In a chilling broadcast, he said they “can fire both conventional and nuclear ballistic and cruise missiles.”

The Kremlin claims they can reach a distance of up to 500 km (310 miles).

Missiles have become a means of threatening the West since relations with Russia deteriorated after Putin’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces.

The Russian president has repeatedly referred to nuclear weapons, which many took as a warning against interfering in the war between Russia and Ukraine.

He said Russia will help convert Belarusian SU-25 fighter jets to carry nuclear weapons in response to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

In a TV program, Putin said: “We have made a decision: within the next few months we will hand over the Iskander-M tactical missile systems to Belarus.”

Ukraine said enemy forces had “completely occupied” Severodonetsk after weeks of fighting between Ukraine and Russian forces.

That means Russia controls most of the Luhansk region and nearby Donetsk in the Donbass region.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy promised in a video speech on Saturday evening that he would “take back all our cities”.

He admitted that the war had reached an emotionally difficult stage and was uncertain that many more casualties would be sustained.

A series of rockets targeted north and west Ukraine, killing at least three, but local officials said there may be more people under rubble in Sarny, west of Kyiv.

Ukraine claimed some missiles came from Belarus, which has provided logistical support to Russia but is not involved in the fighting.

The strikes are part of the Kremlin’s effort to drag Belarus into the war, Ukraine claimed.

The capture of Severodonetsk precedes a period of Western diplomacy in which US President Joe Biden will fly to Germany ahead of talks with NATO for a G7 summit.

It will include a week of talks to try to prevent further escalation of the war as it moves into a new period.

Earlier today, The Mirror reported how one person died and five others were wounded as Kyiv came under fire from Russian troops for the first time in three weeks.

The rocket attacks rained down on a kindergarten in the capital earlier this morning before rescue workers pulled women and children, including a seven-year-old girl, from the rubble.

It is the first attack on Kyiv by Vladimir Putin’s forces since June 5.

Around 6:30 a.m., multiple explosions resounded around the city as firefighters battled blazes and rescued civilians from a nine-story apartment building in the central Shevchenkivskiy district.

Debris spilled over parked cars outside a smoldering building with a cratered roof, while a private kindergarten had smashed windows and a large blast crater at a playground about 400 meters away, Reuters said.

“They (rescuers) pulled out a seven-year-old girl. She lives. Now they are trying to save their mother,” said Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko.
