3:13 am
they're still talking i think is a positive sign and it's not to get an absolute foregone conclusion that the 2 sides will face each other in some massive day in court 40 belorussian individuals have been sanctioned by the european union for their role in the disputed presidential election president alexander lukashenko isn't currently on the list of sanctioned individuals but the head of the european council warns that could change police have crackdown on opposition politicians on protestors senseless sankoh claim victory in august's. we really prevent 20th politically decide it it's or at least its immediate point about ricocheting to no question too it's not on the current on the true and least but of course we will we follow stephen really follow the developments and you know that we often increases the elektra on but i wish i repeat we then all the intimidations against the opposition we turn
