EU and other Western nations of the UN Security Council urged Minsk to end the ‘cynical instrumentalisation of migrants’ and called Belarusian President Lukashenko a ‘threat to the regional stability’, speaking at a presser in New York City on Thursday, shortly after the Russian delegate addressed journalists.
“We condemn the orchestrated instrumentalization of human beings whose lives and well-being have been put in danger for political purposes by Belarus, with the objective of destabilizing neighbouring countries and the European Union’s external border and diverting attention away from its own increasing human rights violations,” Estonian UN Ambassador Sven Jurgenson said on behalf of seven Western nations of the Council.
Jurgenson also called for a ‘strong international reaction’ to Minsk as tensions in the Belarusian-Polish border simmer, and said Belarus’ pressure on the European Union will not succeed.
