the Minister of foreign affairs, and Ann Linde, type, along with the Kent Härstedt, on the Express debate that they would like to see a strong action by Sweden and the EUROPEAN union, Sweden is not making compromises in our demands for democracy in Belarus. The same thing was taken up at the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs and on EUROPEAN affairs.
Unfortunately, the article and the line is filled with the right trade-offs and Linde \ ' s specific proposal, responding not to the rhetoric of a ”strong action”.
a Good relationship is important, but, in the current situation Belarus finds itself in a must-silkesvantarna of the
< L call, in the article the periodic Belarus ' dictator, Lukashenko, for ”the president”. There is massive fraud, violations of the rights of the Belarusian citizens ' fundamental rights, and violence against opposition members do, that the regime must be seen as completely illegitimate. The choice of words is important. In Sweden, the foreign minister and the EU's eyes, the need, mr Lukashenko, be regarded as what he is: a dictator.
as For the rigged ”election” has been the thousands of peaceful demonstrators have taken to the prisons of Belarus, the streets to demand justice and fundamental human rights and freedoms are respected. Lukashenko's response has been ruthless.
the use of Brutal and lethal violence of the
Protesters, journalists and opposition activists have been detained. The violence of the regime has been brutal and deadly. Lind writes in his article that EUROPE should target sanctions against those who would be directly responsible. However, it is far from enough.
and, Unfortunately, accepted by the EU council today, the Linde half-baked into the american's position, the Liberals were the only ones that provide a different sense of the word. Should Sweden make demands of the harsh penalties directed against Lukashenko personally.
the Crimes now being committed by the regime against the Belarusian people, however, are so severe that a person with a more indirect, but, nevertheless, a fact, the responsibility has to be made, by the imposition of sanctions. Belarus finds itself in an extremely critical situation in which such a sanction may help the overall presentation of the opposition to get through their demands for democracy in the country.
with The silkesvantarna
finally, what concerns us is that of Linde's line of carefully preserving the good relationship with the Belarusian regime, but it fails to support the key demands of the opposition, which by all accounts appears to be the presidential election's legitimate winner.
< strong relationships are important, but, in the current situation Belarus finds itself in a must-silkesvantarna of. The requirements of the ”dialogue with the opposition” is not good enough. The dictator, Lukashenko, needs to step down and hand over power to a democratically elected, must be held and political prisoners released.
Even if the requirements of the harm Sweden's relationship with Belarus ' illegitimate regime. < / span> < / span>
