Ukraine is going to join the EU in the imposition of sanctions against Belarus. This was stated by Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba during a briefing.

"Our position on Belarus has been consistent and clear since the first day of the crisis: we have joined the relevant statements of the European Union. As for the sanctions that have already been imposed, we are going to join them," Kuleba said.

At the same time, the official stressed that consideration was going to be made as soon as the sanctions were adopted by Europe. 

As we reported earlier, the countries of the European Union agreed to impose sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko and officials of his regime if the situation in Belarus does not improve.

“The Council strongly condemns the violence employed by the Belarusian authorities against peaceful protesters, and calls for the release of all arbitrarily detained persons, including political prisoners…State the EU's readiness to take further restrictive measures against entities and high-ranking officials, including Aleksandr Lukashenko,” reads the message.
