GENEVA: The Human Rights Council agreed on Monday to carry an pressing debate on the human rights scenario in Belarus, following a request from Germany which described a “steep deterioration” of the scenario there since a disputed election final month.

The Council’s President Elisabeth Tichy-Fisslberger mentioned 25 members of the council voted in favour and two in opposition to, with 20 abstentions, which means the movement was adopted.






Belarussian ambassador Yury Ambrazevich objected to the movement, submitted on behalf of the European Union, which he described as “part of a broad political campaign organised by the European Union in order to support political forces in Belarus who lost the election”.

“…the EU is creating the conditions for preserving this political standoff in the society of Belarus,” he added.
