The EU should use its funds to help Belarus, where the ninth day continues mass demonstrations against President Alexander Lukashenko.
This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Marcin Przydacz on Monday, August 17, addressing the members of the Polish Sejm (lower chamber of parliament).
вЂњWe would like such a signal [of assistance] to be sent by the EU leadership so that other countries would follow it,вЂќ said the diplomat.
He pointed out that the EU has an appropriate mechanism to begin providing assistance to Belarus.
Recall that the EU recognized the elections in Belarus as rigged and is preparing sanctions.
And German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that the European sanctions against Belarus should be aimed at individuals, responsible for manipulating the election results and violence against the demonstrators.
