European Parliament condemns Kremlin’s support for repressive regime and Russia’s support for persecution of national minorities in Belarus
The NAM representatives held a number of meetings.
Pavel Latushka held an online meeting with a member of the European Parliament, former Polish Foreign Minister Anna Fotyga. During the meeting, the MEP noted that she was in favor of specific actions on the part of the EU in order to achieve the release of all political prisoners. In particular, the MP initiated the inclusion of the Belarus issue in the European Parliament resolutions on Russia.
According to the new resolution, the European Parliament condemns the Kremlin’s support for the undemocratic and repressive regime in Belarus and is deeply concerned about the political arrests of Belarusians in Russia and their subsequent extradition to Belarus. The European Parliament is particularly concerned that Russia supports the targeted persecution of national minority organisations in Belarus.
Vladzimir Astapenka, responsible for multilateral diplomacy at the NAM, held a zoom meeting with Norwegian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Poland Anders Eide, where participants discussed bilateral cooperation.
The Norwegian diplomat gave assurances that his country stands in solidarity with the position of democratic forces in Belarus, which are calling for new presidential elections, fully supports the restrictive measures already taken within the framework of the EU and is ready for further constructive engagement with the NAM.
Head of the NAM Pavel Latushka met with Deputy Ambassador of Great Britain Jason Rheinberg. The diplomat gave assurances that London would continue supporting civil society in Belarus and would coordinate its position with the United States in sanctions issues.
