‘Wholly unjustified’: Raab hits out at Belarus after two UK diplomats expelled

Belarus’ decision to expel two UK diplomats has been criticised as “wholly unjustified” by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.
He also claimed that President Alexander Lukashenko cannot hide his oppression of Belarusians, and has called for free and fair elections in the country.

Mr Raab tweeted: “The expulsion of two UK diplomats from Belarus for legitimately observing protests is wholly unjustified.
“(Belarusian leader) Lukashenko can’t hide the oppression of his own people.
“The only way forward is free & fair elections & accountability for those responsible for violence against demonstrators.”
