Belarusian President to meet with Russia’s Putin to discuss bilateral relations

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko will travel to the Russian capital Moscow on Friday to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Belarusian state agency Belta reported.

The meeting with the Belarusian leader, whom Moscow has come to need more and more after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, will be the first face-to-face meeting since the attempted coup by the Russian mercenary group Wagner. According to Belta, the two leaders will discuss "international and regional problems" and economic relations.

The Russian State Presidency also made a statement on the meeting of the two leaders.

"The main part of the visit will be talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on 15 September. The heads of state planned it earlier in accordance with the schedule of meetings between the two leaders. The main topics of the negotiations will be the international agenda and regional issues. In addition, joint tasks in the economy, in particular in industry, agriculture, and other sectors, will be discussed," the statement said.

MEDIATOR IN WAGNER REVOLT

Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin announced on June 23 that they would attempt to revolt in Russia and march towards Moscow. He announced that they were marching toward Moscow by seizing the Russian border city of Rostov-on-Don with their troops in Ukraine. Wagner's troops, who also clashed with the Russian army on the way to the capital, managed to shoot down many helicopters and fighter jets.

With the mediation of Belarusian President Lukashenko, Wagner leader Progizhin ended his rebellion attempts. Prigozhin, the leader of the uprising, which Putin described as “treason”, met in Moscow under the mediation of Lukashenko, and then an agreement was reached on the withdrawal of Wagner to Belarus.

Wagner leader Prigozhin died in a suspicious plane crash on August 23. It was claimed that the plane with Prigozhin on board was shot down on Putin's orders.
