The EU sanctions Belarus after ‘state terrorism’ | Source: CNBC

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen speaks during a press conference at the EU summit at the European Council building in Brussels on May 24, 2021.

The EU agreed to step up existing sanctions against Belarus after the Ryanair plane incident (a Ryanair airplane was forced to land in Minsk to detained journalist Roman Protasevich). Belarus has a close relationship with Russia, and benefitted from continuing political and economic support from Russia since the last round of sanctions.
