Reuters exclusively reports EU to blacklist Belarus airline ahead of economic sanctions

Reuters exclusively reported that European Union is preparing sanctions on Belarus’ national airline and around a dozen top Belarusian aviation officials, a stop-gap measure before economic sanctions following the forced landing of a passenger plane. EU governments, which described the incident as state piracy, say they are looking at targeting sectors that play a central role in the Belarus economy, to inflict real punishment on President Alexander Lukashenko. They could include bond sales, the oil sector and potash, a big Belarusian export.
