Minsk disappointed with prolongation of arms embargo against Belarus


President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko


The European Union considers it necessary to extend restrictive measures against Belarus for another year. The corresponding decision was made on Monday by the Council of the European Union.

This statement was made by the press service of this international organization.

Restrictive measures, it was decided to extend until February 28, 2021. First of all, they relate to supplies weapons and equipment that the country's authorities can use for repression against opposition-minded citizens of Belarus. The exceptions are rifles, pistols and other biathlon equipment, which is allowed to be imported under separate permissions in a limited number.

Individual sanctions against four citizens of the country will also be extended: Yuri Sivakov, Viktor Sheiman, Dmitry Pavlyuchenko and Vladimir Naumov. In the European Union, they are suspected of having disappeared in 1999 and 2000 from two opposition representatives, a media official and an entrepreneur. Belorussian citizens who are under sanctions are forbidden to enter the territory of the EU countries. In addition, they are denied access to their assets located in the EU. These people have been under European sanctions since 2004.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus is disappointed with this step by European partners and consider it a relic of the past. They called on the EU to abandon the cliche and be guided by pragmatism towards Belarus.

Earlier, the EU supported sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko as against the "last dictator of Europe." In particular, he was denied entry to the Schengen countries. But then they decided to gradually weaken these sanctions.

      Sergey, it’s not a barrel size! It’s just by inertia to be afraid! Since they called it "the last dictator of Europe", they expect only dictatorial tricks and decisions from him!

          I look from the other side. The ban applies to weapons and special means that can be used against the opposition. What a dumb herd! Yes, water cannons and Dubia in Belarus will do it themselves!

            Well, judging by the wording in the article, this is "first of all" ... that is, at least there is a "second", I wonder what is there?

          And mistakes are expected in relation to Russia, so as not to be evacuated, like Yanukovych. So that the local maydaunas managed to be uplifted on a birch with Kolya.

              Well, the birch doesn’t matter who is upturned on it .. Guilty or not.
              However, sometimes the crowd also does not give a damn about guilt - it would be someone to pull up.

                I agree to all 100! A.G. Lukashenko himself substitutes his son: he carries him like a prince with him. Emperor of horseradish. Kolya has nothing to do with it, but thanks to daddy, he will pass for the guilty one.

        And I always thought that the dictator should be full in everything. And in what place are Belarus and Luke full? What can Luke dictate and to whom? Exceptionally something can sculpt in the inside of Belarus. But basically Lukashenko is an arrogant beggar and extortionist. Yes + even age, insanity is not childish .... Also, I am the dictator of the local spill .....

      Belarus, although Bela, but still Russia, if they had spoken there, like in Ukrii in a fictitious Bandera, then these Europeans would have changed their attitude, but for now, they speak Russian in Belarus, they have nowhere to go from sanctions, so that you need to rely only on yourself, on your cadres, on your talents. And who is there in this European Union who voted against, by name?

            in Ukraine 10 years ago they spoke very little, then gradually increase quotas, laws and so on, the Republic of Belarus can very well go the same way, and in 10-15 years the situation can easily change.

    But I'm still for Belarus. All of these graters are temporary. Everything will pass, and it will pass

    I was just as naive in 2012 when I talked about the outskirts, nevertheless of relatives, a whole platoon and the land of my ancestors. But it turned out as it turned out - sideways.

    Sergey, it’s not a barrel size! It’s just by inertia to be afraid! Since they called it "the last dictator of Europe", they expect only dictatorial tricks and decisions from him!

    Who is afraid of him? The cannibals were welcomed, African. If they think that with its help they can spoil Russia, they will warm any bastard. So, while they consider it useless. And slowly twist what the most painful.

    The European Union considers it necessary to extend restrictive measures against Belarus for another year.

    A kind of carrot on a rope. So that the donkey would not turn away and go the other way, but HOPED. Primitively, but it works ...
    called on the EU to abandon the cliche and be guided by pragmatism towards Belarus.

    Stupid Belarusians! This is pure pragmatism: bring the client to the right condition so that he runs to his cherished goal without looking around and under his feet ...

        Russian_man (Russian person):There were 40 nationalities in my company. So I studied for 5 years. We didn’t have a team or combat coordination

        If not a secret, what did you finish?
        In my cadet company there were mainly Russians., Ukrainians, Belarusians. There were 3 foreigners - two Mongols, and a Cuban. They lived together. Although, of course, were grouped by interests

    Earlier, the EU supported sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko as against the "last dictator of Europe." In particular, he was denied entry to the Schengen countries. But then they decided to gradually weaken these sanctions.

    Well, they’re holding the “father’s” for one causal place, they expect from him concessions for the internal “Europosition” and a more active dissociation from the creation of a single state-state with the Russian Federation. And he pricks and wants, but is afraid of popular anger / misunderstanding. So the seat is tearing over two chairs, hiding behind the interests of the people. bully

    Alexander Grigorievich (Lukashenko) already felt 99% "European", and the EU said NO, only 98% ... V. Yanukovych sad became 101% European on February 21, 2014 ... and went to live in Rostov.

    How tired of listening to snot about Lukashenko! Do you need a little Ukraine? Well, let's blaspheme Ukrainians, Belarusians, feed China and the oligarchy. And die out as a people, as a nation. Look at the statistics of population decline in Russia. Of course, Ukrainians are to blame, Belarusians are to blame, "and we have nothing to do with it, but we have nothing to do with it."
    Brains need to be turned on at least once .... if they are, really.

    I look from the other side. The ban applies to weapons and special means that can be used against the opposition. What a dumb herd! Yes, water cannons and Dubia in Belarus will do it themselves!

    You can always come up with a reason. The reason for both delivery and failure is the same.

      Lukashenko doesn’t even get to his endless - “give me money and preferences, otherwise I’ll go to the West” and run into only “Okay, leave. But there will be no place in Rostov”. And his dreams, “Kolenka to the Kingdom” have long become an obsession.

      Maybe the old man personally told you inferior, “listen to the inferior, I’ll appoint my son as president, you tell everyone equally inferior, otherwise there’s simply no one without you.”
      And Yanukovych turned out to be as greedy and unprofitable as Putin, therefore, one in exile and the other made the world's largest and richest country a world outcast.


      Alexander Grigoryevich, well, be on fire. Let's register for VO under your name.
