Government hijacking:

On Sunday (May 23, 2021), by order of the President of Belarus Alexei Lukashenko, a Belarusian fighter jet forced a passenger plane belonging to Ryanair to land in violation of international law. The plane was flying from Athens to Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, with 123 passengers. Belarusian government has forced an international airliner carrying an opponent of the president Raman Pratasevich to land in the Belarusian capital using a Russian fighter jet.

We condemn this act as “government hijacking” and call on the European Union to put more pressure on Belarus to release the journalist.
