Ukraine imposes sanctions against the son of Belarusian President Lukashenko

The Ukrainian government has proposed to impose personal sanctions against 52 Belarusian officials, including the son of President Alexander Lukashenko, Viktor, reads a detailed text of the Cabinet of Ministers resolution published on Friday.

On Wednesday, Kiev decided to impose sanctions against Belarusian officials involved in the "falsification" of the 2020 presidential election results and human rights violations, but no names and details were given.

Friday's text says personal economic sanctions against Minsk officials will be imposed for a three-year period and will include a ban on visits and transit through Ukraine, as well as an asset freeze.

Among the victims of the sanctions attack in Kiev are almost all the current and former heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the State Security Committee (KGB), advisers and aides to the president, as well as the heads of the Prosecutor General's Office and the Central Election Commission.

The decision on the sanctions was made by the government and submitted to the Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. If the council approves, it will be adopted by decree of President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

Belarus faced a political crisis after the August 9 elections, marked by allegations of vote rigging, leading to massive protests against Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994.

Ukraine froze contacts with neighboring Belarus last year and joined the European Union, condemning the elections as unfree and unfair. Lukashenko denies election fraud.
