German Foreign Ministry: If Lukashenko and his supporters do not give in, we will expand sanctions against Belarus

According to German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, “the crisis of recent months has radically changed Belarus: the old system collapses – a new Belarus grows”, in this regard, “we are all united by the fact that we want to help this new Belarus break through”.

However, there is “a person who refuses dialogue and imprisons thousands of innocent Belarusians”, said the German Foreign Minister, referring to Lukashenko. Maas also promised ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya to support “Germany and Europe”.
