Foreign Minister of Belarus Vladimir Makei said that Minsk will expand sanctions against the European Union, including the leadership of the EU and a number of European states in the list.
Recall that in early November, the European Union imposed sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko and 14 high-ranking officials of Belarus. The reason for the introduction of new sanctions in the EU was called “the seriousness of the situation in Belarus”, as well as “ongoing repression against representatives of civil society and opposition activists.”
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus said that they would not leave this step unanswered.
Earlier, the United States imposed restrictive measures against eight Belarusian officials and security officials.
