Ukraine and Russia are set to hold negotiations at the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, according to the office of President Zelenskyy.
A statement on the Telegram messaging app said the two sides would meet at an unspecified location on the Belarusian border and did not give a precise time for the meeting.
The announcement came hours after Russia announced that its delegation had flown to Belarus to await talks.

Ukrainian officials initially rejected the move, saying any talks should take place elsewhere than Belarus, where Russia has placed a large contingent of troops.
Meanwhile, President Vladimir Putin has ordered Russian nuclear forces put on high alert in response to what he called “aggressive statements” by leading NATO powers.
