In turn, Arakhamiya wrote on Facebook that the talks would start in two hours.
According to him, the immediate goal is to agree on creation of humanitarian corridors. The rest will depend “on circumstances”.
As reported, following a conversation between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko on February 27, it was agreed that the Ukrainian delegation would meet with Russia without any preconditions on Ukraine-Belarus border near the Prypyat River.
The Ukrainian delegation consists of Davyd Arakhamia, head of the Servant of the People faction, Oleksii Reznikov, Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Mykhailo Podoliak, adviser to the Head of the President's Office, Andriy Kostin, First Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group, MP Rustem Umerov, and Deputy Foreign Minister Mykola Tochytskyi.
According to Mykhailo Podoliak, the first round of negotiations between the Ukrainian and Russian delegations were difficult but no mandatory ultimatums were put forward.
