US considering more Belarus sanctions - report

The administration of United States President Joe Biden is considering introducing more economic sanctions against Belarus, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the additional sanctions would target the country's oil sector, among others. The decision is being considered after Belarusian opposition figure Svetlana Tikhanovskaya called for tougher measures against Alexander Lukashenko's government.

In June, the US imposed sanctions against multiple Belarusian officials and entities, including the State Security Committee of the Republic of Belarus and Lukashenko's Press Secretary Natalia Eismant.
