MOSCOW (Reuters) - Embattled Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko began talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in the Black Sea region of Sochi, the TASS news agency cited the Kremlin as saying.

Lukashenko flew to Russia earlier on Monday to try to win Putin’s help to survive weeks of mass protests against his 26-year-rule.
