UK prepares sanctions for human rights violations in Belarus

The UK is preparing sanctions for human rights violations in Belarus, the foreign secretary has said.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Dominic Raab said Alexander Lukashenko, who was sworn in this week as president in a secret ceremony, has “a wholesale lack of legitimacy”.
Mr Raab said Britain does not accept the results of the rigged election and condemned the “thuggery” imposed on protesters in Belarus.
