Belarus to Punish Calling for Sanctions by up to 12 Years in Prison

The main pastime of the exile opposition criminalized

Machine translated from Russian.

On December 14, head of state Alexander Lukashenko signed the law “On Amendments to the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus.” BelTA learned this from the press service of the Belarusian leader.

The law introduces criminal liability for calls for the application of sanctions against the Republic of Belarus, its citizens and organizations.

These actions will be punishable by imprisonment for up to: six years – if appeals are addressed to ordinary people; ten years – when they are addressed to foreign states, international and foreign organizations; twelve years – if such calls were made by an official using his official powers or led to grave consequences, for example, restrictions on trade, inclusion of enterprises in the sanctions list.

The implementation of the measures provided for by the law will act as an adequate response to attempts to harm national security by destructive forces.

      Sanctions are a crime against humanity.

      If I would be in Lukshenko’s place, I would ask V Putin if I could lease KOLYMA or MAGADAN from Russia to send there for 12 years or more all those calling for sanctions ?? & at Kolyma or Magadan Club Med facilities a big sign at the entrance (translated from Italian, No Lavore No Mangiare)

    If indeed Lukashenko is the last Dictator left in Eastern Europe , he ended up being the best one, in regards to safekeeping his country from the Evil western cabals. Even Russia doesn’t have his balls.

    I wish I could live in Beluarus. What an awesome leader they have there. A MAN that stands up and fights back. I am going to apply to move there. I would LOVE to be able to help them there catch more scum like that roman we saw here a few weeks ago. Lukky shut that maggot down in a hurry. Grabbed him right out of the air. Now he is rotting in a cell hopefully for ever. Guys like him need to be arrested and given the same treatments. ANY demonstrators should be sent to the gulags and left there. Lukky runs a GREAT country. Lets hope he can keep putting these romans in jail. WE LOVE YOU LUKKY.
