  • “A video of the brutal beating of people in Minsk, who are beaten with truncheons and kicked by “law enforcement officers”, has appeared on the network:”

    This must be the result of Luka meeting the opposition in prison yesterday. Memo to the EU. Last week you said no sanctions on Luka, we’ll wait to see what happens. You got your answer, now time to sanction Luka and his boss shorty.

  • And the creature responsible for all of this is protected from sanctions “to keep open dialogues”. The entire EU and all countries who act so spineless in face of such a cowardly dick-tator should sink their heads in shame.
