Lukashenko not to visit Poland on WW2 memorial events over Putin – media
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has turned down Poland's invitation to participate in memorial events on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 2 because Russian President Vladimir Putin has not been invited to attend, sources say.
Due to the fact that Polish leadership ignored Vladimir Putin, "Belarusian authorities did not dare to delegate a senior politician to the event," Rzeczpospolita wrote, citing its source.
Belarus will be represented by the country's ambassador, officials say.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on August 28, U.S. national-security adviser John Bolton said preparations were set to start for the Warsaw meeting of U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
