Let us remind you that MEPs adopted the resolution on Belarus by absolute majority of votes on January 20. The European Parliament has urged the EU institutions to consider targeted economic sanctions and the freezing of all the macrofinancial aid provided to Belarus, to re-apply the visa ban on the Belarusian leading authorities and to suspend Belarusian participation in the Eastern Partnership activities. It also suggests supporting independent media and expresses its opinion that the World Ice Hockey Championships should not be held in Belarus while there are political prisoners in the country.
