Alexander Lukashenko signed a law criminalizing public appeals to the international community to impose sanctions against his regime.

It was reported by the state Belarusian agency Belta .

For appeals to ordinary people, Lukashenka’s law enforcement agencies will be punished with imprisonment for up to 6 years.

10 years in prison threatens citizens who will apply to impose / strengthen sanctions against foreign states, international organizations, and the like.

12 years – if such statements are voiced by an official “using his official powers” or led to other grave consequences, for example, to restriction of trade, inclusion of enterprises in the sanctions list. “

The implementation of the “measures” is explained by “an adequate response to attempts to harm national security by destructive forces.”

What preceded

The foreign ministers of the EU countries on Tuesday reached a political agreement on the introduction of new sanctions against Belarus for the migration crisis provoked by Lukashenka on the Polish-Belarusian border.

It is expected that the updated sanctions list will include about 30-40 people and organizations.

Sanctions against the Lukashenka regime were introduced back in the fall of 2020 in connection with the violent dispersal of peaceful protests and political persecution of citizens. Since then, the EU and the US have regularly strengthened them – taking into account the actions and decisions of the self-proclaimed president.
