Ukraine Agrees for the peace talk with Russia at Belarus

Ukraine agreed to dispatch a team to Belarus for talks to end the Russian military campaign in the country, reported Russia Today on Sunday.

Kiev “confirmed” the planned talks in Gomel Region, which is close to the borders of both Russia and Ukraine, Russian chief negotiator Vladimir Medinsky told reporters.

Medinsky, an aide to President Vladimir Putin and former Culture Minister, added that the parties are now deciding on the logistics and the exact location of the summit, with “maximum security” for the Ukrainians, RT reported.

“We guarantee that the travel route will be 100 per cent safe. We will be waiting for the Ukrainian delegation,” the Russian chief negotiator said.

The Russian team arrived in Gomel on Sunday, where it said talks were planned with the Ukrainians.

Kiev later said it wanted to negotiate on “neutral ground”, arguing that Russian troops were using Belarusian territory to stage attacks on Ukraine. Minsk, however, denied that its forces were participating in the Russian operation, RT reported.
