Nursultan Nazarbayev arrived in Minsk for CU-Ukraine-EU meeting

The parties will discuss the situation in Ukraine and ways out of the crisis.
Kazakhstan President will be in bilateral meetings too.
  Nursultan Nazarbayev is on a working visit in Belarus for a meeting of the Customs Union and Ukrainian leaders and deputy chairman of the European Commission, as well as a series of bilateral meetings, the Akorda press service informs. 
Today, August 26, Minsk is hosting a meeting of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Vladimir Putin, Alexander Lukashenko, Petro Poroshenko and representatives of the European Union.
As previously reported, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, European Commissioners for Trade and Energy, Karel De Gucht, and Günther Oettinger will be in Minsk too.
Reportedly as of 15.40 Astana time, Petro Poroshenko and Catherine Ashton arrived in Minsk. As the Ukrainian president’s administration reported, Poroshenko and Vice-President of the European Commission have already started the talks.
Earlier in the interview to chief researcher at Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies under RK President shared on the experts’ expectations from this meeting.
Political scientists primarily await clarification of Ukraine leader’s position on a number of issues - both political and economic.
However, Yuri Buluktaev believes, a lot will depend not so much on the outcome of today's meeting, as on Poroshenko’s follow-up consultations with the United States.
