Michael Scanlan called for the release of political prisoners

Charge d'Affaires in Belarus Michael Scanlan called on the authorities of Belarus to release all political prisoners.

Scanlan recalled the U.S. position, which has remained unchanged — all political prisoners be released and the charges against them dropped.

It is not only the position of the United States, but the European Union and Russia, the head of the diplomatic mission.

"If Belarus wants to be part of the common European family, the country must be followed legal procedures and justice," — said Michael Scanlan.
