The British Foreign Office said that the decision of the Belarusian authorities to expel the kingdom’s diplomats from the country is unreasonable, since Minsk, in any case, will not be able to hide the fact of oppression of citizens. According to the Belarusian side, the expelled British diplomats collected information about the internal political situation and the course of the protests.
“The expulsion from Belarus of two of our diplomats, who legally watched the protests, is absolutely unfounded. Lukashenko cannot hide the fact that he is oppressing his people. The only way out of this situation is to hold free and fair elections and hold accountable those who use violence against the protesters, “- said on Twitter, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.
