Putin and Lukashenko to hold meeting in late May

A meeting between Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus is still planned for late May, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed to reporters on Tuesday, adding that the Belarusian leader would have a chance to provide his Russian counterpart with the details of the Ryanair flight incident.

"The meeting is indeed scheduled for later this month and we will announce the date and venue in due time," Peskov promised, pointing out that the event "was planned and preparations began before Sunday’s developments."

"If it takes place, President Lukashenko will surely have an opportunity to provide the Russian head of state with the circumstances and causes of what happened," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
