The European Union has again condemned the actions of President Lukashenko and confirmed that it intends to impose new sanctions measures on individuals responsible for violence and falsification of election results in Belarus.  This comes after the widely criticised presidential elections in August, followed by a large number of arrests of political opponents.  High profile opposition figure Maria Kolesnikova was seized on a Minsk street on Monday, with reports that police attempted to forcibly deport her to Ukraine.
