The United States condemns Belarus for forcible landing in Minsk

The U.S. government on Sunday called for a hasty meeting of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) over the forcible return of Ryaner’s plane in Belarus and the detention of an opposition journalist on board, for which he strongly condemned Belarus.

On Sunday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blingen demanded the immediate release of Roman Protestantism, saying “the shocking action of the Lukashenko regime endangered more than 120 passengers, including American citizens.”

“The United States will soon support a meeting of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization to analyze this event,” Blinken said.

Ryaner’s Athens-Vilnius flight landed in Minsk on Sunday. Belarusian authorities have confirmed that the MiG-29 fighter jet was launched into a passenger engine.

According to unofficial information, the pilots were forced to land by military plane at Minsk airport. Following this, opposition activist, journalist and blogger Raman Pradashevich, a former co-editor of the Opposition Next Channel, was detained there by authorities who were considered “extremist”.

The plane reached Vilnius in the evening with an eight-hour delay. With the exception of Pradashevich, his girlfriend was not on board, and – according to the opposition Paves Latzkov – four.

Belarus’ actions on Sunday were condemned by a number of countries, including Poland, for accusing its officials of violating international law, theft, “state terrorism” and “hijacking a plane”, as well as a decisive reaction from the international community to clarify the circumstances of the event.
