MINSK (Sputnik) – Minsk will slap sanctions on high-ranking officials of the European Union, Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said on Sunday.
On November 17, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko held a meeting on foreign policy in Minsk.
The EU imposed sanctions on 40 Belarusian officials in early October. The union has then expanded the list, which now also includes Lukashenko. The sanctioned officials are prohibited from visiting EU countries. The measures also freeze the EU assets held by those sanctioned.
The EU is reportedly planning to further expand sanctions against members of the current government in Belarus.
