Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has decided in favor of bringing a bill on suspending the agreement between the Republic of Belarus and the European Union on the readmission of individuals, who stay without permission, into the House of Representatives of the National Assembly. This was reported by the press service of the President of the Republic of Belarus.
It is noted that the agreement stipulates the procedure for transferring, accepting, and returning the individuals, who violate terms of entry, stay, and residence. Belarus’ corresponding obligations will be put on hold soon.
"The document was prepared by the government in response to unfriendly actions of the European Union and its member states towards Belarus," the statement says.
The presidential press service explained that this decision was made in accordance with international law.
As we reported earlier, a group of hackers named Belarus Cyber Partisans claimed responsibility for a number of cyberattacks on government and police databases in Belarus, including those of the Interior Ministry.
It recently said that it now had access to the passport details of all Belarusians, as well as internal security plans, and also knew whose telephone numbers had been tapped. The list reportedly includes security officials, state-run companies and private firms. The Cyber Partisans say that they have hundreds of thousands of hours' worth of recordings.
