Yushkevich: Through expanding sanctions the EU sends ultimatum to Belarus

MINSK, 26 March (BelTA) – Chairman of the Belarusian Youth Organizations Committee Alexander Yushkevich views the EU sanctions an ultimatum to Belarus, BelTA has learnt.

“Sanctions are always counterproductive. It is a talk in terms of ultimatum which Belarus has never accepted as it always counts on good neighborly relations and an equitable dialogue. Despite it Europe chooses an ultimatum today. Expansion of sanctions is simply an attempt to trigger Belarus’ reaction. It is clear that our country is not going to react to these actions,” the MP said.

Alexander Yushkevich does not rule out that Belarus will have to resort to help against this pressure.
