Regime promised to release political prisoners before end of February

The Belarusian regime had promised to release all political prisoners before the end of February this year. This statement has been made by the international coordinator of the Charter’97 press-center, one of the initiators of the campaign “European Belarus” Andrei Sannikov. “Representatives of European states who took part in the Brussels Forum have informed about such agreements. Now the sharp reaction of the United States and imposing sanctions against Belneftekhim become clear,” said Mr. Sannikov in an interview to the Charter’97 press-centre.
