247 News Around The World, Former Belarus Olympian Yana Maksimava says she won’t return out of fear, on August 4, 2021 12:40 PM at 12:40 PM

A former Olympian from Belarus has become the second athlete from the country in days to say they do not want to return to their homeland out fear the country’s authoritarian regime will kill them.

Heptathlete Yana Maksimava, who competed in the Beijing and London Olympics and currently lives in Germany, made the announcement on Instagram Tuesday, after a sprinter from the country left the Tokyo Olympics to seek asylum in Poland.

“Thinking and thinking for a long time, we decided not to return to Belarus. To our great regret, now there you can lose not only freedom, but also lose your life,” Maksimava wrote alongside an image of her and her son. 

“Here there is an opportunity to breathe deeply and be one of those who are fighting for the freedom of their people, friends, relatives and friends, we will definitely Win.” 

Yana Maksimava said that by returning to Belarus, one "can lose not only freedom, but also lose your life."

The married mom said she hopes she’ll be able to continue her sporting career in Germany and earn a spot at the 2024 Olympics in Paris. 

The athlete didn’t reference sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya in the post but did allude to the brutality of President Lukashenko’s regime in Belarus, which violently quashed protests last August following a disputed election that was widely considered to be fraudulent.

Belarus, a former Soviet state, has been under Lukashenko’s autocratic rule since 1994 and has been accused of a slew of human rights abuses, including no freedom of expression and assembly and arbitrary arrest and detention, according to Amnesty International

Political “disappearances” are also common in Belarus as a means to silence Lukashenko’s dissidents, Amnesty International said. 

On Tuesday, the body of activist Vitaly Shishov, a fierce Lukashenko opponent who helps Belarusians escape the country, was found hanging from a tree in a park close to his home in Kiev, Ukraine and those close to him are positive it wasn’t a suicide. 

“He recently noted vehicles and people who were following him,” Shishov’s girlfriend, Bazhena Zholudz, said. 

“I don’t believe in suicide, nothing in Vitaly’s conduct signaled his intention to kill himself.”

Tsimanouskaya, who griped online that her coaches put her in a relay race that she didn’t train for without consulting her, was ordered by her coaches to not compete and return back to Belarus immediately once her remarks spread. 

At the Tokyo airport, she narrowly escaped her minders and was taken into protective custody by local police officers. She was later seen entering the Polish embassy where she was offered asylum and a humanitarian visa.

News – belsat.eu, Belarusian authorities put Belsat on country’s list of extremist materials, on August 4, 2021 11:53 AM at 11:53 AM

Read More

The Belarusian Information Ministry has added Belsat’s information products to the Republican List of Extremist Materials, as well as the name ‘Belsat’.

As reported earlier, the website and social networks of Belsat were declared extremist by Chyhunachny district court of Homiel on July 27. The decision was based on the inspection conducted by the Main Directorate for Combating Organised Crime and Corruption (notorious GUBOPiK/GUBAZiK) in Homiel region. The materials were not specified.

Journalists leaving Belarus amid crackdown on independent media

Under the Belarusian law, the distribution of ‘extremist’ works (i.e. sharing and posting on the Internet) is prohibited in the country; one may get a fine of a few days of arrest for violating of the regulation. The access to the websites on which such materials were posted must also be blocked. If found during searches, the publications deemed extremist (for example, books) are to be confiscated and subsequently destroyed; their holders may face administrative charge. At the same time, the law does not prohibit subscribing to such resources, so one can continue to read and watch Belsat.

In the wake of the outbreak of large-scale post-election protests in the summer of 2020, the Lukashenka regime started to took aim at ‘opposition’ Telegram channels and non-state media outlets. Since then, they have blocked access to Belsat.eu, TUT.BY, Nasha Niva (nn.by), Euroradio, Kyky.org, and many other online resources in the country.

News – belsat.eu, New sanctions amid migrant crisis: Lithuania set to put transit of Belarus fertilizers to complete halt, on August 4, 2021 10:45 AM at 10:45 AM

Read More

Lithuania may completely stop the transit of Belarusian potash fertilizers, Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis told journalists in the wake of Wednesday’s meeting of the Cabinet. The EU member country has already addressed Brussels with a proposal to expand sanctions against Belarus, Delfi reports.

According to the top official, the sectoral sanctions that were imposed on the Lukashenka regime in June have affected only about 20% of transit. At the present time, the restrictions do not apply to all potash cargoes from Belarus, and Lithuania suggests the bloc should bring to nought Belarus’ supplying potash fertilizers via the port of Klaipeda.

“It’s possible to stop completely. I would say, yes, it’s realistic. Real negotiations have not started yet, therefore, it’s too soon to speak about that,” Delfi quotes Landsbergis.

It is not ruled out that the new sanctions will be introduced in September.

Sanctions imposed on Belarusian fertilizers will be gradual, Lithuanian Foreign Minister says

The total number of migrants illegally crossing the Belarusian-Lithuanian border in 2021 has exceeded 4,000, which is tens of times more than in the whole year of 2020. As reported earlier, in response to Western sanctions imposed on the regime, Alyaksandr Lukashenka threatened to loosen control over the flow of migrants and banned substances (even nuclear materials) at the border with the European Union.

Lithuania accuses the Belarusian border guards of ignoring the trespassers and even assisting them in their illegal moving, calling the current situation ‘the hybrid aggression’. The European Union sent employees of the EU Agency for External Border Security (Frontex) to Lithuania in order to strengthen the protection of the the EU-Belarus border from illegal migrants. In July, representatives of the foreign affairs committees of the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, France, the Czech Republic, Estonia called for new sanctions against Lukashenka regime over fostering illegal migration.

It is not ruled out that the new sanctions will be introduced in September.

Sanctions imposed on Belarusian fertilizers will be gradual, Lithuanian Foreign Minister says

The total number of migrants illegally crossing the Belarusian-Lithuanian border in 2021 has exceeded 4,000, which is tens of times more than in the whole year of 2020. As reported earlier, in response to Western sanctions imposed on the regime, Alyaksandr Lukashenka threatened to loosen control over the flow of migrants and banned substances (even nuclear materials) at the border with the European Union.

Lithuania accuses the Belarusian border guards of ignoring the trespassers and even assisting them in their illegal moving, calling the current situation ‘the hybrid aggression’. The European Union sent employees of the EU Agency for External Border Security (Frontex) to Lithuania in order to strengthen the protection of the the EU-Belarus border from illegal migrants. In July, representatives of the foreign affairs committees of the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, France, the Czech Republic, Estonia called for new sanctions against Lukashenka regime over fostering illegal migration.
