Lukashenka invited to Poroshenko’s inauguration, Putin isn’t


The Ukrainian President will be inaugurated in Kiev on June 7.

The Ukrainian MFA press secretary Evgen Perebiynis announced it, BelaPAN reports. Belarus has not responded yet so it is not clear who will represent our country at the inauguration ceremony, the Ukrainian official said.

About 20 Presidents and PMs have already confirmed their participation, Perebiynis noted. In particular, Polish President Bronisław Komorowski, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė, Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, head the Swiss Department of Foreign Affairs Didier Burkhalter, President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy and Secretary General of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Lamberto Zannier are planning to attend the ceremony.

The Russian Embassy representative has been invited to the ceremony instead of the Russian President.
