EU to slap new sanctions on Belarus

Brussels: European Union foreign ministers will approve on Monday a fresh set of sanctions against scores of officials in Belarus and prepare a series of measures aimed at hurting the country’s economy, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said.

The EU has ratcheted up sanctions since President Alexander Lukashenko won a sixth term last August in elections slammed as fraudulent by the 27-nation bloc. The measures have targeted people accused of electoral misconduct and responsibility for the police crackdown that followed.

“We will approve the package of new sanctions, which is a wider package,” Borrell told reporters as he arrived in Luxembourg to chair the ministerial meeting.
