Congressmen Engel and McCall condemn the threat of shooting at demonstrators in Belarus

They said that this would only underline the illegitimacy of Lukashenka

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel and senior committee member Michael McCall issued a statement commenting on the Lukashenka regime’s threat to open fire on demonstrators.

“The threat of the Lukashenka regime to use deadly force against the brave women and men peacefully protesting in Belarus is completely unacceptable,” they said..Congressmen Engel and McCall condemn the threat of shooting at demonstrators in Belarus – In addition to the use of stun grenades and water cannons, the practice of torture and mass detentions, the transition to the use of live ammunition as a way to stay in power will only emphasize the illegitimacy of Lukashenka in the eyes of the Belarusian people and those who are watching what is happening. We are determined to support the democratic aspirations of the Belarusian people and work to ensure that those guilty of violence and flagrant violations of human rights in Belarus do not go unpunished. “.
