The meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko will take place in Krasnaya Polyana and is expected to last a whole day. This was announced by the Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov.
Earlier, Peskov noted that during the meeting, the parties would discuss bilateral relations, as well as exchange views on international issues. It was also reported that a press conference following the talks is not planned.
Previous negotiations between Putin and Lukashenko in Sochi took place in mid-September 2020, when the Russian president granted Belarus a loan of $ 1.5 billion. Lukashenka emphasized that “he does not go to the February meeting to ask for anything.”
