On June 24, the European Union imposed the fourth package of sanctions against Belarus after the incident with the Ryanair plane. 166 people and 15 organizations were subject to restrictions. Back in May, the President of Belarus Alexander
Lukashenko threatened to stop curbing the flow of drugs and illegal migrants who came to Europe through the republic. On July 2, an extreme situation regime was introduced in Lithuania due to the influx of illegal migrants from the Middle East countries arriving through Belarus.
Lukashenko was also instructed to completely close the border with Ukraine, which he accused of creating a network of “sleeping” terrorist cells in Belarus.
