Belarus Parliament: Western leaders have lost their common sense
The Belarusian National Assembly urges Western politicians to stop their reckless policy toward the country.
In a statement released Saturday, the National Assembly of Belarus urged Western politicians and officials of abandoning their "reckless" policy toward the Republic.
The statement detailed how the West "continues its illegal, groundless policy of sanctioning a sovereign state, the Republic of Belarus, in a blatant violation of humanistic norms of goodness, compassion, and justice."
On Wednesday, the European Council announced it will be imposing a fresh round of sanctions on 22 Belarusian officials for alleged links to the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.
It is noteworthy that Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared that the goal of the special military operation is to protect people who have been subjected to genocide by the Kiev regime for the past eight years.
The operation aims to prevent the demilitarization and disarmament of Ukraine and to bring to justice all those responsible for the bloody crimes against
"The Council today decided to impose targeted restrictive measures in respect of actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, on 22 high ranked members of Belarusian military personnel," the Council said in a statement.
The European body attributed the decision to Minsk's alleged role in the decision-making and strategic planning processes that led to the "Belarusian involvement in the Russian aggression against Ukraine."
According to Belarus' Parliament, through their actions, politicians in the west have "completely lost their common sense and sense of responsibility, and have crossed all boundaries of humanity."
The statement described that even athletes from Belarus are deprived of competing under the state flag and are attacked.
Western politicians were urged to "come to their senses, to stop implementing reckless and inhumane policies toward Belarus and the Belarusian people. Mutual relations should be built exclusively on the basis of equal dialogue, trust, and mutual respect."
