Putin hops off plane to meet belarus president lukashenko

Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Putin hops off plane to meet Belarus president Lukashenko” – below is their description.

Putin hops off plane to meet Belarus president Lukashenko: Putin’s visit for talks with the Belarusian President is his first to Minsk since 2019 and the Russian President will focus on deepening his ties with Belarus at a time when his army is struggling in its invasion of Ukraine. The Kremlin has for years sought to deepen integration with Belarus, which relies on Moscow for cheap oil and loans, but Lukashenko has so far resisted outright unification with Russia despite being a key ally in the war. But speculation has mounted ahead of Putin’s visit that the Russian leader would pressure Lukashenko to send his troops to Ukraine alongside Russia’s military after a series of defeats for Moscow in nearly 10 months of fighting.
