Switzerland Follows EU With New Sanctions Against Belarus


The Federal Council of Switzerland adopted further sanctions against Belarus on August 30 to align it with the measures taken by the European Union.

More than 40 individuals and entitles were added to the sanctions list. A ban on exporting goods and technology for use in the aviation and space industry was also imposed.
