Situation in Belarus - Situation in Lebanon - Situation in Russia, the poisoning of Alexei Navalny (debate)

  Rasa Juknevičienė (PPE). – Mr President, why Belarus matters to all of the EU, not only to its neighbours is because people in Belarus are fighting for a better Europe as a whole – for a Europe without dictators. The people of Belarus will not give up and they are heroes of Europe because they fight for a European way of life. The people of Belarus can change the European continent because they can change not only Belarus but Russia as well, giving example for Russians. That’s why Putin is afraid of a Belarussian revolution and supports the bloody dictator, Lukashenko.

I call on the EU Member States to fundamentally change their policy from Russia first to Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus first. This is the only way to help Russia change and cease being a state that uses chemical weapons against the Kremlin’s critics.

(The speaker spoke in Belarusian) ‘Zhiv’e Bielarus!’

President—elect Sviatlana for the Sakharov Prize! EU stay brave.
