A Ukrainian delegation that is expected to hold talks with Russia is headed to Belarus via Poland and the meeting is expected to start on Monday morning (local time), a source close to the organizers of the talks told Sputnik.
“The talks will be held on Monday morning due to the fact that, fearing for their lives, the Ukrainian delegation did not take the direct route, through Gomel, but will enter [Belarus] through Poland, at the ‘Warsaw Bridge’ checkpoint. They are taking a huge detour,” the source said on Sunday.
Negotiations between Russia and Ukraine have not yet begun and will not begin soon, a source close to the matter told Sputnik late on Sunday (local time).
The meeting place was changed at the request of the Ukrainian side, the source noted. Another source said that the Ukrainian delegation, which will consist of about five people, is still on its way to the site.
