EU could impose more sanctions on Belarus - official

The European Union might impose additional sanctions on Belarus over Minsk's repression of its opposition and media reporting on it, Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau (pictured) said on Tuesday, as quoted by the country's press agency PAP.

"Unfortunately, the situation in Belarus is constantly deteriorating, so more sanctions are likely to be imposed. The list of political prisoners becomes longer," Rau stated.

His remarks come after Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya called on the EU and the United States to be "braver and stronger" in their approach to President Alexander Lukashenko's administration.
