Purses of Lukashenka may be crossed off EU’s black list

The list of the accomplices to the Belarusian dictator, banned from entering the EU, may be shortened already in the near future.
The information with a reference to reliable sources in Brussels came from the co-chairman of the organizational committee for the creation of the party Belarusian Christian Democracy Vital Rymasheuski as he gave an interview to the charter97.org web-site.
“The shortening of the list of regime representatives, banned from entering the European Union countries, is being prepared. First of all it is the matter of oligarchs. A number of positive articles in independent media, in which they have been lately often pictured as successful businessmen, and which do not say that they have achieved their success due to connections with the authorities, - is only a part of the work being carried out in that direction. The oligarchs are the first candidates to be crossed off the list also for the reason that they are actively using European courts to get the sanctions lifted. Politicians, in their turn, must take this into account. I would like to emphasize that this decision depends not only on the European Commission, but on the authorities of the EU member states”, - the politician claimed.
Vital Rymasheuski noted that he deemed it incorrect that the sanctions list may probably be shortened.
“Until political prisoners are released, one should not speak of cancelling the sanctions against any of Belarusian officials and oligarchs. This would be an incorrect step”.
We would remind that in the European Union’s black list there are now three Belarusian businessmen – Uladzimir Piefcieu, Jury Chyzh and Anatol Ciarnauski. The sanctions against them were introduced due to their support, including financial, to the Lukashenka regime and the repressions against the opposition that it carries out.
