Ukrainian delegates have agreed to meet Russians at Belarus’ border to reach an agreement to end Moscow’s invasion, reported President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s office.

“The politicians have agreed that the Ukrainian delegation will meet with the Russian delegation without preconditions on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, near the Pripyat River.”

“Aleksander Lukashenko has taken responsibility for ensuring that all planes, helicopters and missiles stationed on the Belarusian territory will remain on the ground during the Ukrainian delegation’s travel, meeting and return,” said Belarus President Alexander Grigoryevich Lukashenko in a call with the Ukrainian president on Sunday.

The delegates from both countries have agreed to meet for talks at the Pripyat River located on the north of Chernobyl. The area is currently under the control of the Russian military, said the spokesperson. The Russian delegates include foreign, defense ministers, and presidential administration.

“The Ukrainian delegation arrived in the area of the Ukrainian-Belarusian border to take part in talks with representatives of the Russian Federation”, Tweeted Defense of Ukraine.

Monday’s meeting would be the first one between the two nations since Russia began the invasion on Thursday. However, Zelenskyy, on the other side, is hopeful of reaching a breakthrough.

“I will be honest, as always: I do not really believe in the outcome of this meeting, but let them try, “said Zelenskyy. He should not leave any ‘chance to end the war’.

Earlier, Ukraine had refused to meet with Russian delegates when they asked to hold the meeting in the city of Gomel, southern Belarusian, as the country has directly been involved in the invasion by hosting the Russian troops, who are now heading to Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, and assisting them to launch missiles from its border.

While Kremlin has indicated that it will have a meeting with Zelenskyy to talk about ‘neutral status’ for Ukraine, essentially hoping to negotiate with the country to surrender, Zelenskyy’s administration has made it clear that it will discuss terms to end the war, stop the killing in the country and not concessions.

“We will not surrender, we will not capitulate, we will not give up a single inch of our territory”, said Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, during a press conference.

During negotiations, Lukashenko has assured that no aircraft or missile would shell out on Ukraine, said Zelenskyy. However, in an unpromising indication for the meeting, Belarus fired 2 Iskander ballistic missiles at Ukraine following the meeting agreement on Sunday.
