The EU’s 27 foreign ministers on Friday reached a political agreement on potentially sanctioning around 20 individuals, linked to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell said.
The measures will target those on a “high political level” involved in electoral fraud or the crackdown on protesters.
Borrell said he cannot reveal the number of people to be placed under sanctions or their identities, because “member states are still providing names”.
He added that the list had been growing and the number might increase in the coming days.
