Zelenskyy has said that he will not hold negotiations with Russia on the territory of Belarus, where some Russian troops were stationed before invading on Ukraine’s northern border.

But Kyiv said Lukashenko assured Zelenskyy that “all planes, helicopters and missiles stationed on Belarus territory will remain on the ground during the Ukrainian delegations’ travel, negotiations and return.”

President of Russia Vladimir Putin has said that a Russian delegation was currently in the Belarusian city of Gomel.

Moscow has wanted to hold the negotiations in Kremlin-aligned Belarus. Zelenskyy, refusing to travel to Minsk, said Kyiv had proposed “Warsaw, Bratislava, Budapest, Istanbul, Baku” as options to Russia.

Ukraine fought off an incursion by the Russian military into its second city Kharkiv on Sunday, the fourth day of the invasion, but Putin raised the international alarm by putting nuclear forces on alert.
