The European Union is set to adopt a fourth package of sanctions against the regime of Belarus self-proclaimed president Alexander Lukashenko in June
This was written on Twitter by the correspondent of “Radio Liberty” Rikard Jozwiak.
“The fourth package of sanctions against Belarus should be adopted in June. At the same time, lists of persons responsible for the forced landing of the Ryanair flight should be drawn up,” Jozwiak wrote.
“The sectoral sanctions will probably take a little longer, but the goal is to do it before the EU summer break in August,” the journalist added.
As reported, the EU summit determined tough sanctions against the Belarusian aviation industry.
The EU Council should adopt a legal ban for airlines from Belarus to use EU airspace — both in transit and for flights to EU airports. Thus, the western direction will be closed for the Belarusian airline Belavia, and flights will remain available almost exclusively to Russian airports.
