The United States will again impose sanctions on Belarusian companies. They demand an inquiry into the landing in Minsk iROZHLAS

The United States will renew sanctions next week against nine Belarusian state-owned companies. White House spokeswoman Jen Zhaki said the government would consider imposing further sanctions on Belarusian government officials after consultations with the European Union and other partners. Reuters reported on Saturday that the United States has called on Belarus to allow an independent inquiry into the forced landing of the detained Ryanair plane by opposition journalist Raman Pratasevich and his girlfriend.

The U.S. administration did not specify which Belarusian companies would be allowed. The first US sanctions against Belarus came into force in 2006, according to the DPA news agency.

On Sunday, the Belarusian Air Force forced a Ryanair plane to land in Minsk on its way from Athens to Vilnius. Belarusian officials say they did so on suspicion of bombing. However, security forces detained opposition journalist Raman Pradasevik and his girlfriend on board.

The incident was condemned by the West, and many politicians did not hesitate to label the actions of the Belarusian regime as acts of theft, kidnapping or state terrorism. Several EU countries, including the Czech Republic, later banned the Belarusian airline Belavia from landing within its borders, and EU carriers began to avoid Belarusian airspace.
