The United States takes additional sweeping actions against the Lukashenko regime


Today, the United States is designating 19 individuals and entities that generate revenue for the regime of Alexander Lukashenko in Belarus. Those persons operate in the Belarusian defence sector and are involved in Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. 

The US is taking these actions to increase the cost to the Lukashenko regime for its brutal suppression of the pro-democracy movement and civil society in Belarus, corrupt financial enrichment of the Lukashenko family, and collaboration in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This action reaffirms the US efforts to promote accountability for the Lukashenko regime’s abuses in Belarus and around the world. 

“We will continue to support democratic actors and civil society in Belarus who oppose Lukashenka’s authoritarian regime and its support of the Kremlin’s war effort against Ukraine,” underlines a State Department’s press statement.
