Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called on the European Union to restore contacts with Belarus. The Kremlin reports that.
The European Union accuses Minsk of orchestrating a migration crisis on the border with Poland.
During a telephone call with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the second in two days, Putin is said to have pointed to “the importance of finding a solution to the serious migration crisis as soon as possible”.
According to the Russian president, this must be done through “restoring contacts between the European countries and Belarus”, the Kremlin said in a press release.
