-- Polish Seym with anxiety watches the recent events in Belarus that witness human rights violations and limitation of rights of Belarusian citizens, -- is said in the statement of Polish Sejm. Polish Parliamentarians filled this document with concrete examples, such as liquidation of Belarusian Labor Party and European Humanities University. It is said in the statement that during the times of communistic rule support of the West was very important for Polish democratic forces and therefore the latter ones express their solidarity with those Belarusians who fight for freedom and democracy in their country.

-- Sejm urges Belarusian authorities to stop the practice of discrimination of institutes of civil society, because only respect to norms of democracy, rights and liberties of human and citizen will allow Belarus to return to the European family of free peoples, -- reads the statement.
