EU pledges new sanctions against Belarus over support for Russia, von der Leyen says


YEREVAN, JANUARY 10, ARTSAKHPRESS. The European Union will impose new sanctions on Belarus as it keeps up the pressure on Russia to end its war in Ukraine and extends measures to those countries that support Russia, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Tuesday.

“We will keep pressure on the Kremlin for as long as it takes with a biting sanctions regime, we will extend these sanctions to those who militarily support Russia’s war such as Belarus or Iran,” Reuters quoted von der Leyen as saying at a news conference. “And we will be coming forward with new sanctions against Belarus answering their role in this Russian war in Ukraine.”
