Belarus: UK responds to crackdown on journalists

The Foreign Secretary has issued a statement following the recent crackdown on journalists in Belarus.

19 May 2021

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

Criminalising opposition voices and independent media in Belarus will fuel rather than quell the people's thirst for democracy and freedom.

The Belarusian authorities must halt this campaign of oppression, release those held on political grounds, and engage in meaningful and constructive dialogue.
