Ukraine calls Belarus authorities to dialogue with opposition

Minsk police detained three citizens of Ukraine, who took part in the protest action, organized by Belarusian opposition, as reported Vasyl Filiphuk, head of the press office of Foreign Ministry of Ukraine.

According to him, Ukrainians feel well and do not complain of conditions of keeping or improper treatment.

On the Ukraine's consul's request administration of the police station put all the detained citizens of Ukraine in one cell. Ukrainian consul delivered them book and personal hygiene goods.

Filipphuk noted that Foreign Ministry of Ukraine continues to call Belarus authorities to ensure Belarusian citizens their right on peaceful meetings in accordance with democratic norms, to keep to tolerance, to bar from repressions and to release all the detained during the peaceful protest action.

Besides, Ukraine's MFA calls Belarusian authorities to the dialogue with opposition forces and to take into consideration conclusions and comments of OSCE and international community.

Filipchuk noted that Ukraine concerns over groundless detaining of Ukrainians citizens in Belarus and over prohibition of the country for Ukrainian citizens. "These actions contradict friendly and good-neighbour relations between our countries," said he.
