Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko is in Moscow on Monday. A diplomatic source has reported this to the RIA news agency.
The Kremlin stated that Lukashenko would come to Russia “in the coming days”.
The visit to the Kremlin has been in the air for a while. The Belarusian president has been the target of massive demonstrations since the August 9 elections.
Campaigners demand his resignation because he allegedly tampered with the election results. The protests are cracked down, and several opposition leaders are detained.
Moscow has pledged aid to the neighbouring country and is keeping a police force on hand should things get out of hand.
Belarusian police meanwhile continue to crack down on the demonstrations. On Tuesday, 121 activists across the country were handcuffed.
