EU preliminary approved sanctions against Belarus

The sanctions will be a response to the suppression of protests against the results of the presidential elections in Belarus.





The European Union will draw up a list of Belarusian officials who may be subject to sanctions. This was announced on Friday, August 14, by Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputovich at a press conference following a video conference of the foreign ministers of the EU member states.

According to him, the sanctions will be a response to the suppression of protests against the results of the presidential elections in Belarus.

“We cannot ignore the facts of election fraud and the use of force,” Chaputovich said. According to him, a number of EU ministers called for the introduction of sanctions.

“Poland supports these actions against those who participated in falsifications and the use of force,” he said. According to Cheputovich, the EU will work on a list of persons against whom sanctions may be imposed.

“There is an agreement, a consensus that such sanctions should be introduced,” said the Polish Foreign Minister. According to him, these will be people who led the electoral process, which was recognized as not complying with the norms, or brought to the use of force. “These people will not be able to enter the EU,” he said.

As reported, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko announced his readiness for dialogue with partners. Lita, Latvia, and Poland earlier demanded new presidential elections in Belarus.
