EU Alarm As Anti-Lukashenka Leader Feared Abducted Amid Deepening Belarus Crackdown

MINSK -- Opponents of Belarusian President Alyaksandr Lukashenka are scrambling to locate one of their most influential leaders after a report suggested a member of the opposition Coordinating Council's presidium was hustled away in a minivan by unidentified men early on the 30th day of anti-government protests. The independent, Russian-language news portal Tut.by quoted an eyewitness as saying Maryya Kalesnikava was abruptly swept from the street in downtown Minsk on September 7 and taken into a vehicle, marked "Communication." The Belarusian Interior Ministry, its national Investigative Committee, and the State Control Committee have all said they have no information about Kalesnikava's disappearance. Minsk police said they did not detain her. The apparent abduction came one day after authorities acknowledged arresting more than 600 people at protests across the country over the weekend that attracted tens of thousands of people to pressure Lukashenka to resign following what they say was a rigged election last month.

Putin poisons his opponents. Lukashenka kidnaps his opponents. Such brave dictators!

The leaders of Europe have demanded answers from Putin who refuses to cooperate.

Only someone who is guilty would refuse to cooperate. Looks like more EU sanctions are on the way.

I've already written my Senators requesting that they sponsor a "Navalny Act" which would be a much stronger version of the Magnitsky Act.
