Ukrainian delegation agrees to meet with Russians at Belarus border, according to President Zelensky’s office

President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office said Belarus President Aleksander Lukashenko called the Ukrainian President Sunday.

“The politicians have agreed that the Ukrainian delegation will meet with the Russian delegation without preconditions on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, near the Pripyat River,” his office said.

“Aleksander Lukashenko has taken responsibility for ensuring that all planes, helicopters and missiles stationed on the Belarusian territory will remain on the ground during the Ukrainian delegation’s travel, meeting and return.”

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.

CNN’s Nathan Hodge contributed reporting to this post from Moscow.

  1. This is the last saga of the unipolar system US started decades ago and I am affraid there will not be easy solution unless NATO does redraw it’s positions back to justwrst of Germany. If US and Europe really are clean the should encourage all post soviet countries to independent not alineated neither with NATO nor with Russia and as free buffer zone for peace. US and and Europe have pushed the boundaries aggressively to the west and that is what people does not realize what Russia is dealing with. Crimea also was claimed by Russia for the same reason. That is what the west media would never tell you. We know Russian leaders are autocratic but some well founded reasons they do have including NATO pushes and demographic cleansing of leftover Russian speakers minorities in the ex-soviet republics like Ukraine. Reakiang on Wikipedia about Sergei Lavrov the Russian foreign minister was actually really eye opener to me on how the west twist things out. I do think is the Russian state affairs to care for minority Russians in ex-soviet republics. This should have its parallels in Ethiopia and in special the Amhara leaders whom they look do not care for their folks neither in their region not in other regions.
