In 2015, the extension of sanctions Belarus related to "sluggishness of the US bureaucracy."

Recall that in February 2016 the European Union partially lifted sanctions off from Belarus and Lukashenko. Sanctions against Belarusian officials were introduced in 2010 and reinforced in 2012 in connection with the systematic violation of human rights.
