Ukraine-Russia talks may continue in Belarus by weekend - source

MOSCOW. March 2 (Interfax) - Russia and Ukraine are unlikely to hold the second round of talks in Belarus on Wednesday, an informed source told Interfax.

"The Ukrainian side has not confirmed its readiness for negotiations. Obviously, they need more time to reach Belarus due to logistical issues. Negotiations are unlikely to be held today," the source said.

"Most likely, that will happen at the end of the week," he said.

"A more realistic scenario is a date closer to Friday if the Ukrainian side gives an affirmative answer today or tomorrow," the source said.
