The official account of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry in Twitter posted a deliberately humorous message about the latest resolution of the European Parliament.
— МИД Беларуси ?? (@BelarusMID) October 5, 2018
On October 4, MEPs criticized the situation with human rights in Belarus. In particular, they condemned the persecution of journalists in the framework of the “BelTA case”, the blocking of the “Charter-97” website and called for the release of political prisoners, Zmitser Paliyenka and Mikhail Zhamchuzhny. The resolution noted: the Belarusian authorities “continue their repressive and undemocratic policies towards journalists, lawyers, political activists and civil society,” which in turn hampers the development of relations between Belarus and the European Union.
“We recommend that MEPs change the old disk, since the dialogue between Belarus and the European institutions has long had new tunes,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Anatol Glaz, commenting on the resolution.
Probably, today’s joke of the Foreign Ministry in social networks meant that the MEP’s claims to Belarus are old and are repeated from year to year.
