There should be sanctions: Merkel harshly condemned the Lukashenka regime




German Chancellor threatened Belarus with sanctions over the beating of demonstrators





German Chancellor Angela Merkel confirmed the statement made earlier by the Foreign Minister that sanctions may be imposed on those responsible for human rights violations in Belarus.

As reported by Deutsche Welle, on August 14, the official representative of the German government Stefan Seiberg said at a briefing.

According to him, Merkel called the repressions against peaceful demonstrators in Belarus “unacceptable”, and the mass arrests and violence by the security forces “shocked” the Chancellor.

“From our point of view, it will be necessary to discuss sanctions against perpetrators of human rights violations,” Seibert said.

In addition, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen spoke in support of the sanctions.

“It is necessary to introduce additional sanctions against those who violated democratic values or human rights in Belarus,” she wrote on Twitter.





Von der Leyen recalled today's summit of the foreign ministers of the EU member states, at which a decision on the situation in Belarus will be made. The head of the European Commission is confident that today's meeting will demonstrate “firm support for the rights of the people of Belarus to fundamental freedoms and democracy.”
