US, Canada, EU impose new sanctions against Belarus

The Belarusian foreign ministry has condemned as deeply absurd the new sanctions imposed by the West on its country over the migrant crisis.
The ministry said European officials magined some aggression from the Belarusian side and hypocritically delivered a sanctions blow. It accused the West of demonizing Belarus and pledged tough retaliatory measures. The reaction came after the United States, Canada and the European Union on Thursday announced fresh sanctions on Belarus. They accuse Minsk of using migrants to reach its objectives against the E-U, an accusation Belarus rejects. In recent months, thousands of migrants from the West Asia have travelled to Belarus in the hopes of entering the EU through Poland. They are hoping to cross the border, but Poland and Lithuania are pushing them back, leaving them behind barbed wires in freezing temperature.
