Lukashenko States Belarus will Shut borders with Poland and Lithuania

Belarus's foreign ministry responded strongly: "We are disappointed that the European Parliament, positioning itself as a serious, objective and democratic structure, could not find the political will to look beyond its nose, overcome one-sidedness and not become a hostage to conventional cliches". Belarus said the Council's decision on monitoring set "a unsafe precedent".

Tikhanovskaya, who has taken shelter in neighbouring Lithuania, insisted that the country's violation of its global obligations to respect "human dignity and basic human rights. means the worldwide community has a right to react in strongest terms".

Lukashenko says he won re-election fairly and is the victim of a smear campaign by the West.

Protesters say the vote was fraudulent.

According to Tikhanovskaya, the actions of the Belarusian authorities mean that foreign countries have the right to react "in the strongest terms".

There were no reports of big demonstrations in Minsk, though the opposition has announced marches for Saturday and Sunday.

He repeatedly interrupted the screening, raising procedural objections and insisting her words had "no relevance on the substance. on the events that are taking place today".

Russian Federation - there as an observer without voting rights - proposed 17 amendments to the motion, but they were all rejected.

The UN Human Rights Council session will consider an European Union draft resolution for UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet to monitor the crisis and report back by year-end.

Russia's foreign intelligence chief on Wednesday accused the United States of protecting Belarus opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya and allocating $20 million to promote anti-government protests that erupted after disputed presidential elections.

"When the term of office of the current authoritarian leader Alexander Lukashenko expires on November 5, parliament will no longer recognize him as the country's president", - the parliamentarians decided. More than 800 personnel including paratroopers are reportedly taking part in the drills.

Ukraine's foreign minister warned Russian Federation on Friday against taking steps that undermine may undermine Belarus' sovereignty and destabilize the region, while Britain called for sanctions on those in Belarus responsible for the "fraudulent elections".

"The council's consideration of the recent events in Belarus is timely", United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said in remarks delivered by her deputy.

The UK also supports imposing sanctions against those responsible.

About 2,000 people marched through the city demanding that President Alexander Lukashenko step down.

Meanwhile, a source in Brussels told reporters on Friday that there are 40 names on the European Union list of individual Belarus sanctions but it has not yet been finalised.
