The Cabinet of Ministers proposes to the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) to impose sanctions against some Belarusians involved in the falsification of the presidential elections in the Republic of Belarus. The relevant decision was made at a government session on Wednesday.
So, in order to protect national interests, the Cabinet of Ministers submitted to the NSDC proposals for the imposition of personal special economic and other sanctions against individuals of the Republic of Belarus (the list of persons is not attached) for a period of three years.
It is noted that such a decision is related to the decision of the EU Council of October 2, 2020 and November 6, 2020 on the imposition of sanctions against individuals who are involved in the falsification of the results of the presidential elections in Belarus, as well as against persons who are involved in the violation of the declaration of human rights, intimidation, repression, violent suppression of peaceful protests, torture and detention, in particular of Ukrainian citizens.
Meanwhile, Belarusian Ministry of Information has banned the broadcasting of the Ukrainian channels Kvartal 95 TV and UA.
“The reason for the decision was a violation of current legislation in the part concerning the foreign media specialization. Ukrainian TV programs broadcasted advertising that was not declared while getting broadcasting permits,” the statement said.
