Romania, in solidarity with Poland and Lithuania, recalls the ambassador of Belarus on the Romanian territory, Viorel Moșanu, accused by the Lukashenko regime of interfering in the country’s domestic policy. The two countries withdrew their ambassadors, followed by the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Germany, and Bulgaria. 

“We have decided to call the ambassador of Belarus for consultations, in solidarity with Lithuania and Poland. Belarus must understand that the use of diplomatic pressure on EU member states will not help dialogue and will not bring positive results, Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu wrote on Twitter.

Bulgaria announced on Thursday evening recall of the Belarusian ambassador for consultations, according to Digi24.

With this decision, we express our solidarity and support for our EU partners – Lithuania and Poland,” Bulgaria’s foreign minister wrote on Twitter after a meeting with Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tshanovskaia at a Globsec summit in Bratislava.

Lukashenko recalled the ambassadors of Warsaw and Vilnius last Friday for consultations and called for a reduction in Lithuanian and Polish diplomatic staff in Minsk. Poland and Lithuania refused to comply and recalled Belarusian ambassadors. 

The Belarusian opposition is challenging the re-election of President Alexander Lukashenko, guilty of the presidential election fraud. The European Union did not recognize the election result and imposed sanctions on members of the Minsk regime.

According to official data, Lukashenko obtained 80.1% of the votes. The opposition has accused the August 9 presidential election of being rigged, ending up in protests.
