President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko arrived in the southern Russian city of Sochi ahead of his upcoming negotiations with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Reuters reports, citing flight tracking data.
On September 3, Lukashenko met with Russia's Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. The parties discussed the "controversy" of the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny's poisoning. Lukashenko claimed that the Belarusian special services had intercepted the talk of Berlin and Warsaw, which confirmed that it was a "falsification".
As we reported earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he had formed a reserve of security forces for Belarus.
"Alexander Grigoryevich (Lukashenko - 112 International.) asked me to form a certain reserve of law enforcement officers. And I did. But we also agreed that it will not be used until the situation gets out of control," Putin said.
He also noted that Russia was reacting to the protests in Belarus more neutrally than Europe and America.
