Belarus says that it has prepared a venue to host talks between Ukrainian and Russian delegations, as Moscow’s invasion of its western neighbour enters the fifth day.
Belarusian security mocked
Ukraine has agreed to send diplomats to a location near the Ukrainian-Belorussian border, despite reports that the country’s dictator, Alexander Lukashenko, is poised to send troops to join the invasion.
The president of Belarus promised the president of Ukraine in a telephone call that he would ensure that there was safety for the delegations to travel close to the border for peace talks.
But right after that phone call missiles were fired from Belarus territory into Ukraine so it made a mockery of that promise.
Ukraine has vowed not to give any ground at the meeting, and its President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he doesn’t expect the talks to yield any results.
“As always: I do not really believe in the outcome of this meeting, but let them try,” he said.
