Zakharova condemned new Western sanctions against Belarus

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova: Western sanctions against Belarus are inhumane official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova. Her words were published on the agency's website.

“We strongly condemn the new restrictive measures against Belarus, which were simultaneously adopted on December 2 by the United States, the European Union, Great Britain and Canada. These sanctions are illegitimate, like any restrictions imposed bypassing the UN Security Council, “the message says.

According to the diplomat, the sanctions are inhuman in nature due to the negative impact on the life of the citizens of Belarus.

Earlier, the European Union adopted the fifth package of sanctions against Belarus in connection with the situation with migrants on the Polish-Belarusian border. The black list includes more than 25 individuals and legal entities, including the Belavia airline and the Grodno Azot and Belarusneft enterprises. Restrictions were also introduced by the United States and Britain.
