EU: Alexandr Lukashenko and 14 other officials sanctioned

On 6 November 2020, EU Council added 15 members of the Belarusian authorities, including Alexandr Lukashenko as well as his son and national security adviser Viktor Lukashenko, to the list of individuals sanctioned in relation to the violent repression and intimidation of peaceful demonstrators, opposition members and journalists after the 2020 presidential election in Belarus by adopting Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1648 and Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2020/1650.

Restrictive measures, which now apply to a total of 59 individuals, include a travel ban and an asset freeze. In addition, EU citizens and companies are forbidden from making funds available to those listed.

These sanctions are also of relevance to the UK Overseas Territories which continue to remain in step with the EU regime at least until the end of the Brexit transition period at the end of the year.
