Negotiations between Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko will begin any minute. The upcoming meeting of the presidents of Russia and Belarus has already made a lot of noise.
One-on-one communication between the two leaders will take place at the Bocharov Ruchey residence in Sochi. A photo of the meeting room has circulated on the web. The picture shows the flags of Russia and Belarus, two television screens and four chairs.
The frame raised questions from users. "For whom additional seats?", - the Pool of the First Telegram channel quoted curious readers. The answer turned out to be simple: for ambassadors. Diplomats will be invited if necessary.
One of the topics of the talks will be the political crisis in the republic. Earlier, Putin announced the creation of a reserve of Russian security forces to suppress protests. They will appear on the territory of Belarus if the situation gets out of control.
Let us remind you that riots in the republic began on August 9. Hundreds of residents of Belarus were unhappy with the fact that Alexander Lukashenko won the next presidential election. According to the CEC, more than 80% of people voted for him.
The politician said that he would not allow a change of government in the country. According to Alexander Lukashenko, Western states, in particular the United States, are involved in what is happening in the republic. They allegedly want to turn the inhabitants of Belarus against Russia.
