The US does not rule out additional sanctions against Belarus
US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo issued a statement following the abduction of Maria Kolesnikova, a member of the Coordination Council of the Belarusian Opposition.
вЂњThe United States and its allies are considering the possibility of introducing additional targeted sanctions to ensure accountability of those involved in human rights violations and repression in Belarus. We remind the republican authorities that they are responsible for the situation with Ms. Kolesnikova and other unjustly detained persons,вЂќ the head of the State Department said.
