The foreign minister of Estonia Urmas Poet urged the Belarusian authorities to release the members of the unregistered organization Partnership who were sentenced to different terms of imprisonment. The minister is gravely concerned that ˜in the contemporary Europe there take place the repressions that are equal to Stalin’s time in their mood and scope’. He also said the EU could expand the list of the Belarusian officials who are denied entrance and introduce there those who are responsible for the repressions.
