EU commissioner rebukes Belarus

From MosNews:

EU Commissioner for External Affairs Benita Ferrero-Waldner has harshly rebuked the government of Belarus for its recent attempts to terrorize the country’s Polish minority, Polish News Bulletin reported Monday.

“The temporary arrest of members of the Polish Union in Belarus (ZPB) and the tampering with an independent, non-governmental organization is unacceptable,” Ferrero-Waldner said. Her statement came after Polish Foreign Minister Daniel Rotfeld called for EU support in the conflict with Belarus.

Meanwhile, Russian analysts have suggested that the row between Poland and Belarus suits the authorities in Moscow.
