How convenient for that wimp Putin. Having reneged on a meeting in Bulgaria because he knew he would have a rough ride over Belene he now comes up with an invitaion - very plausable I admit, that Borisov will find hard to decline, that means the two will meet, for the first time since the fracas, on Putin's home soil. If I were Borisov I would accept and then have my aids say that no such meeting had been accepted or planned!!!
