Social protests in Belarus give opposition new capacities – Lebedko
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
The unsanctioned protest rallies that kicked off in Minsk and other cities of Belarus against the so-called unemployment tax give more capacities to the Belarusian opposition, one of the country's opposition leaders Anatoly Lebedko has said in Vilnius.
US Congressman John Shimkus of the Republican Party has made an address to US legislators, calling to pressure Belarus to give access to international observers to the Astravyets Nuclear Power Plant under construction merely 50 km from Lithuania's capital Vilnius.
Lithuania seeks that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should evaluate the safety of the site of the Astravyets nuclear power plant under construction in Belarus and its selection criteria.
