Hillary Clinton: US continues to support freedom fighters in Belarus

The United States Secretary of State urged to release Belarusian political prisoners.

Hillary Clinton criticised the authorities in Ukraine and Belarus and welcomed the elections in Georgia. Her speech at the Brookings Institution on Thursday was devoted to relations between the US and Europe, RIA Novosti reports.

Ukraines October elections were a step backwards for democracy, and we remain deeply concerned about the selective prosecution of opposition leaders. In Belarus, the government continues to systematically repress human rights, so we must continue to push for the release of political prisoners and support those brave activists standing up for the rights of the people of Belarus, the US Secretary of State said.

She said the US welcomed Georgias elections and the first peaceful transition in that countrys history. We continue to call on Georgias new government to demonstrate its commitment to democracy, transparency, due process, and the rule of law, she said.
