Lithuania's Foreign Ministry has proposed imposing sanctions against 118 Belarusian officials responsible for vote-rigging and violence against protesters, APA reports citing BNS.
"The Foreign Ministry has submitted an updated list to the Interior Ministry," Rasa Jakilaitienė, spokeswoman for Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius, told BNS on Wednesday.
Previously, the Foreign Ministry proposed blacklisting Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and another 30 people accused of vote rigging.
Blacklisted persons would be banned from coming to Lithuania. The final decision should be made by Interior Minister Rita Tamašunienė.
The European Union is also considering sanctions for Belarusian officials. Diplomatic sources have told BNS that the EU plans to propose sanctions against some 30 Belarusian officials, but the decision is expected in September at the earliest.
