Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky has confirmed that his delegation would meet with Russians at the Belarus border.
He spoke after he held a conversation with Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko earlier today.
A statement issued from his office said the Ukrainian delegation would meet with the Russian delegation without preconditions on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, near the Pripyat River.
According to him, Lukashenko has taken responsibility for ensuring that all planes, helicopters and missiles stationed on Belarusian territory remained on the ground during the Ukrainian delegation’s travel, talks and return.
The Ukrainian president had earlier said he would not meet with Russian delegation on Belarus territory as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been helped by Belarus.
Russian state news agencies also reported Sunday that a Russian presidential aide said that Ukraine had confirmed it would meet a delegation from the Russian Federation in the Gomel region of Belarus, without providing details about who would represent the Ukrainian side.
